Best Strategies for Live Betting Newbies

Live betting tips for beginners

Last updated on April 8th, 2022

Live betting has become popular, especially for beginners. But it can be a fatal mistake that can kill your bank and spirit if you approach it hastily. Here are four of the best strategies for live betting you can try on VOdds.


How to Win in Live Betting?


        1. Start on the markets you’re already familiar with


In general, live betting does not exist as a standalone market. Instead, it offers live betting options for pre-game events like Moneyline, Totals, and Spread bets. Of course, there are also unique sub-markets and propositional bets, but it’s counterproductive to start with something you haven’t tried yet if you have something you have already mastered.


        2. Combine Live bets with Pre-game bets


This works like a matched bet but without the risk of commitment. The idea is one of the two will be your insurance depending on how the game will play out. Placing a pre-game bet will also ensure that you’ve done enough research and will have good data at hand to compare with the data you gather in real-time. 


If the game goes according to your predictions, then your pre-game will be enough. But if something goes wrong, then you can salvage it by placing in-running bets. 


        3. Use a reliable betting site with live betting features


You might think sports streaming is the first thing you need to secure before you dive deep into this market. Betting sites with live streaming services are preferable but being able to watch the game is useless if you only have mediocre betting lines.


Getting to bet on the best live odds is one sure way to make money on live football betting, or any sport you’re interested in. You can start by looking for reliable bookmakers for live betting. The most established ones have a built-in live stream. This way you don’t sacrifice the quality of your odds. 


You can also look for aggregate betting platforms with live betting odds from different bookmakers. This way, you have all the best odds in one dashboard, on your laptop maybe, then simultaneously just watch the live game on your tv like you normally do.



        4. Find low-risk betting markets


The biggest perk of in-running bets is you can watch the gameplay out and change your bets accordingly. So you should look for beginner-friendly bet types where you can maximize having live data. One of them is the Final Score market. The live odds will be shorter than the pre-match odds but you will have enough time to see how the match will end instead of simply relying on predictions before the game.


Especially for this market, the playstyle will greatly impact the score. You will be able to determine firsthand if the team is going all-out from the start, focusing more on defense, or maybe they are planning to score late in the game. 


Live betting may not be usually standalone but it’s still a whole new world on its own that needs full preparation. So sign up and use these live betting tips for soccer, basketball, or any sport you wish to try!
