There’s seemingly no shortage of fun ways to bet on sports these days. It can be hard to keep up with all the straight bets, parlays, futures, teasers, alternate lines, and more!

However, it can be hard to learn about the game while making bets. Learning is key in this business. While studying statistics and reading weather reports are important, one of the best ways to learn about a sport is to watch the game. Watch how the players move. Watch how weather impacts certain games. There’s so many different things to pick up on that can only come from watching. That is also where live betting comes in! Live betting, as the name suggests, is a bet on a game that is going on at the time of the bet. Most bets occur before the game begins. However, watching and learning about the game, and then making a bet based on what you’ve seen, can be a profitable way to play. For example, if you’re watching a game between two football teams with a total of 47 before the game, and it’s 3-0 after the 1st quarter, the live total will go down, because it’s unlikely that both teams will combine for 44 points over the last 3 quarters. You may see the line at 39 or 40. If you think these are two good offenses who just had to knock off some rust, or a flukey turnover occurred in the 1st quarter, you may want to bet the live Over. You’ll only know how to make this live bet if you’re actually watching, however.

It’s a similar concept for a favorite being down early. If a favorite is -7 before the game, but they’re losing in the 2nd quarter, they will be a much smaller favorite to win, or possibly even an underdog at that point.

Live betting can be a profitable way to bet, but to do it successfully, you have to be watching and paying attention to the game and seeing how both teams are playing. There’s no one size fits all to sports betting, so keep live betting in mind next time you’re looking to make a bet! Odds can and do move extremely quickly in live betting, so if you think you have an edge, don’t hesitate! It’s completely different during pre-live betting, when you can take your time and think about your bet.
