What is live betting?
Live, in-game betting is one of the most popular new ways to wager with online sportsbooks. Live betting allows you to place wagers on games and sporting matches that are in progress. Each year more in-game odds are created. Typically, betting in game at an online sportsbook will take you to a separate section of the site entirely, with different menus and a list for every game where in-play wagering is available.
Often in-game betting helps a player increase their position, or hedge against a previously placed bet. In-game betting presents opportunitities for a smart gambler, but can also be a detriment to players that chase losing bets or think that they are just 'lucky'. Usually online sportsbooks that offer live betting will reduce the maxmium bet amounts for in-play wagering. Most sportsbooks only allow wagering during commercials or extended breaks in the action, however some top sportsbooks allow nearly continuous wagering, especially during soccer matches.
