In this article, let's talk about a betting mode that provides a lot of excitement and adrenaline: Live Betting. Readers in the sports betting universe know that in most events, they are closed shortly before the start of the game. In a football game, for example, they are closed at the moment of the initial whistle. What some may not know is that selected events are offered in the "live" mode, meaning you can bet until the last minute of the match.
But how does this work? In conventional betting, the analyst (trader) evaluates the conditions of the event and stipulates the odds. The system is then programmed to close the bets at the time of the initial whistle, in the case of a football match. In Live Bets, the trader follows the live match and will include or change the odds as the game happens. Thus, at all times there are new bets available and new odds. This allows for much more betting options than in the conventional mode, as well as much more excitement.
In Live Bets, odds are constantly adjusted to reflect the circumstances of the match. Let's say a team is winning 2-0 in the interval. The odds for the bet that the game will end tied will be much larger than they were at the beginning. After all, half the game has already happened. Likewise, if it is tied and a player of the visiting team is kicked out, the odds for the home team to win will surely fall. This is because your chances of winning the game have increased because you have one player over.
In addition to the odds that change during a match offered to Vivo, the types of bets (markets) available also change. At the beginning of the game it will be possible to bet on which team will score the first goal, for example. Once that happens, that bet is changed and it becomes the team that will score the second goal. So, unlike the conventional mode where bets are made before the start of the match and you have no chance to recover any losses, in Live mode there is the possibility of reversing your result, betting on a new market.
In Live betting, the better your "reading" of the match, the greater your chances of winning. Therefore, the same rule applies to any type of sports bet: it is important to be well informed about each team, the circumstances of the game, the history of the clashes and everything else that may interfere with the result.
