Guide to Live Betting

Back in the early days of sports betting, you could only wager on an event before it started or at half time. But with live betting, you can get in on the action even after tip-off, first pitch or kickoff. You can wager live on everything from who will win to the total points scored and even player props. 

The odds can change quickly as the momentum of a game shifts. For example, if a team was favored by ten points before kickoff, but now they trail by ten points early; their odds to win are going to look very different now than they did before the game began. 

Live Betting is Fast & Fun

You have to be fast to enter your bets as games and live odds move quickly. Sometimes the lines will come off the boards temporarily after a big play or if a particular play is under review. But they will come back, so stay ready to get your pick in. 

Benefits of Live Betting

One big benefit of live betting is that you get to watch some of the game and see for yourself how the teams, the players and the matchups are looking before locking in your wagers. It’s fast-paced, super-exciting and a lot of fun.
