Live Sports Betting

live sports betting laptop As soon as online gambling became a mainstay of sports betting it was only a matter of time before bookmakers started to make full use of the new possibilities before them. The result of this new betting medium is live betting, or in-play betting as it is also known.

Betting Opportunities

Live betting opens up so many new markets and possibilities to the sports bettor it can be hard to know where to start and with which sport. In-play betting is available from all of the major bookmakers on all the major sports. The main difference of course, between standard betting and live betting is the ability to place bets during the actual match itself, rather than just before the match begins. With sports such as football, boxing, cricket, golf, greyhounds, horseracing, rugby, snooker and tennis all covered, punters have found themselves with an almost infinite number of new markets.

Taking football as an example, it is now possible to place a bet at almost any point in the match on the next team/player to score the next goal, the next yellow/red card or even how many corners there will eventually be in the match...

The great advantage for the punter is that instead of having to work out your team's form before the match starts, you can now sit down and watch the first 5 or 10 minutes or even more, before laying your bet.

Live Betting Encourages Live Streaming

Also, because of these new markets in live betting opening up, many of the larger bookmakers have begun streaming live sporting events on their websites which would not otherwise be shown on TV. These are often lesser-known fixtures as, of course, the biggest teams and competitions are already shown on cable television, for example. Nonetheless, this means there are new in-play betting opportunities opening up all the time for you to bet live on which you would otherwise not get to see. The other obvious advantage to watching streaming sports action is that you don't need to go down to your local bookies to watch the game. You can now sit comfortably in front of the television with a laptop, or in front of your home PC, enjoy the action and place your bets.

Another live betting favourite with the punters is tennis. With in-play betting on tennis you can literally bet on each individual point, game and set as they happen. This means there are literally hundreds of opportunities per match to both place a bet and get yourself back into the black if you lose a few. Even on low profile tennis matches there can be over 30 different markets at any one point, all with the advantage of you being able to watch events unfold as you make your bets.

So as you can see, in-play sports betting has opened up a whole new world for both the experienced and more casual bettor. Take advantage of these new markets by using the information you find on this website to make you fully aware of all the sports, bookmakers, promotions, bonuses and offers available to you.
