The fastest-growing form of wagering in sports betting is live or in play bets, which are exactly what they say they are. People today crave more action and just because the puck has been dropped and the game is underway, that doesn’t mean you are left to merely sit and watch.
At a sportsbook like 888 Sport, you will find dozens of live betting options at your fingertips. You can wager on which team will score next, or win the next period. Among their unique offers are time interval prop bets, in which you can wager on the total goals during a specifically designated portion of the game.
Live betting is also alive over in the sportsbook at PointsBet. In their book, they offer period puck line and moneyline wagering, period winning margins, total goals, and total goals bands, first to score, last two score and will any period be scoreless markets.
Among its live markets, FanDuel offers period odd/even total wagers, exact number of goals by period wagering, the first team to score, period spread and both teams to score betting and moneyline double wagering where you combine the outcome of two of the three periods into one bet.
William Hill, which operates the sportsbooks at Ocean Sports and the Tropicana, offers one of the deepest benches when it comes live betting options. You can bet on whether a particular player will score the first or last goal of a game, or whether he will score at any point during the game. There are also markets for players enjoying two and three-goal games. As well, Wincast wagering provides the opportunity to play a combination wager of a player scoring a goal in conjunction with a win by his team.
The array of live betting options at BetAmerica feature time of the first goal, highest-scoring period, draw no bet markets on each period, individual team total goals wagers on every frame and wagers on which team will score the next goal of the game.
One thing is for certain – no matter which sportsbook you take to stake, with live betting, you will run out of game time before you run out of action.
