Live betting is a fairly new way of betting on different sporting events. As the name implies you can bet
on games or matches while they are being played. Bookmakers are constantly adjusting the odds during
games (and more commonly breaks in the action), and many of them allow you to continue to place
bets throughout most of the game.
This inplay betting is obviously a good bit different than traditional betting. In play betting allows you
to place wagers during the action, rather than having to place all of your bets at the beginning of a
game or match. This was initially done by online bookie sites to create more action on individual games,
and to increase their profits. However, this in game live betting provides knowledgeable bettors with a
way to exploit the bookies and turn a profit.
Not all online bookmakers have live betting available. In our opinion, the best live betting sites are
Bet365 and William Hill. Both of these sites offer live betting on all of the sports that are listed in the
right sidebar. Unfortunately for US bettors, neither of these sites accepts players from the United
States. US players looking for live betting action should try Bovada or Bookmaker.
