Live betting is the newest and fastest growing type of betting on the market today. It has grown in popularity just like online betting in general. Live betting allows players to place bets on a sporting event after a match has started and while the match is in progress.
The great thing about live betting and the reason for its huge growth in popularity is the power it gives the player to react to what happens in the specified game.
The odds will consistently fluctuate dictated by the pattern of the match, and there is a large selection of markets to choose from, all of which are available most of the time while the game is running until the final minutes.
The range of markets available varies from sport to sport, by default markets are available along with markets specific to football such as the number of cards, the number of corners, results at specific times in the match and the next goal scorer.
Most sportsbooks will typically allow players to watch the match in question, by offering a free live stream if they place a bet on the match live.
Most of the available pre game markets are available for a certain amount of time, and some with added extras. Players can be far more specific as certain markets emerge.
So players can bet on something happening before or after a certain time, such as the first goal being scored before 40 minutes, or the total number of goals or corner kicks in the match.
Sportsbooks like UG Sport also offers the opportunity to bet on how many goals or corner kicks will be scored in a given period, just to add an extra bit of excitement to this phase of the match.
