What is live sports betting?
Live sports betting has revolutionised the way we enjoy betting on football, rugby, cricket and the like. Over the past 20 years the development of online software and explosion in sports stats collection means you can now live bet in play on practically any professional event.
In-play betting is different to traditional sports betting because the markets remain open while the action unfolds. And when there are changes to the match, race or event, then the In-play betting odds change accordingly.
So, for example, you might choose to bet on New Zealand to beat Australia at rugby. New Zealand are the pre-game favourites but Australia score two early tries. The live rugby odds immediately change, so that Australia are now the favourites. This could be the perfect time to wager on the All Blacks, or perhaps it’s time to cash out on that pregame bet on Australia?
There are scores of betting markets for you to track in the live odds, and they range from which horse will finish second in a race, to which ice hockey player will score next. Bet using live odds
At the start of a match, you will have the pre-match odds for a wide range of betting markets, during the game, the number of markets will decrease. However, there still a large number of bets that you'll be able to place, during a game, the likelihood of these bets occurring changes. For example, in football betting, if a player has made three fouls in the opening stages without being carded, the betting odds for that player to be booked in the cards betting market will be impacted but if you pre-empt this, you can find some fantastic odds when you bet in-play.

Best Markets For Live Sports Betting
Now you know more about how In-play betting works, let’s take a look at four markets where live bets prove popular every day of the week…
In-play betting Market: Cards Betting
Cards betting is a truly unique bet live football has monopolised. Few other sports provide as many cards as football, and so that is where we’ll focus this example. With cards betting, you can wager on the total number of yellow cards in a game, the total number of cards shown to a specific team, and even which players could be shown a yellow or red card. The beauty of In-play betting is you can predict midway through a game which player might soon be booked, because they’ll be the ones accumulating fouls!
In-play betting Market: Over/Under Goals
The over/under market is ideal for goals betting in football and a wide range of other sports. For football, punters generally tend to wager on how many goals a specific team will score. It’ll be something like: Costa Rica to score +2.5 goals. If they score three goals, you win your bet! But this market is also perfect for sports that feature much larger points totals, like basketball, American football and rugby. Here, you can bet on over/under total points across a game. This makes for compelling viewing if you’re betting live on sport!
In-play betting Market: Next Team To Score
A live bet that is applicable to most team sports, the Next Team To Score (NTTS) wager is often the perfect live bet. That’s because bettors can track patterns in a live game, and make more accurate predictions on who could score next. You can also use NTTS as an insurance bet. Say, for example, you’ve put £10 on England to beat Wales in rugby. England are winning 27-10, and your bet looks good. But you decide to place a small NTTS wager on Wales in case they score next, just to act as an insurance against you potentially losing the first bet. If Wales don’t score, you’ll win your original bet and only lose a small amount from the second bet. If Wales score next, at least you’ve covered yourself.
In-play betting Market: Final Score
The final score market in any sport will always fluctuate when the betting is live. But what’s important to note about this market is that some scores will fall away as the game unfolds. Unlike the match winner market in football, which can only go one of three ways (Home Win / Draw / Away Win) certain outcomes in the final score betting markets disappear as goals go in. So, if you bet on 0-0 at the start of a game and a team scores, your live bet is lost before the game’s even finished. Likewise, the odds on a 4-3 win for an away team will diminish if they’re leading 3-2 at half time. So keep an eye on final score bets and place wagers armed with this knowledge.
