hey all i'm new to live betting have tried a bunch in the last few weeks or so and mixed results. i've doubled down on a side that i was on when they got behind early
and it paid off a few tiems and sometimes it didn't pay off! tonight i took the astros right after the first pitch hr from Turner and got some good odds.
my questions are, how have any of fared on this?
Can you literally take a side say while down a few scores
then they tie it up or even take the lead and then take the other side with a guaranteed middle?? or does the offshore sites not let you do that??
i remember a game where i had in football i took a team down 20 that i felt comfortable with coming back and get outstanding odds then they took the lead by 10 and the odds were flipped and was considering betting the other side in case they came back but i passed. would it have worked?
live betting can at times seems "easier" than game betting but over the long term, if you are a bad game bettor, you're likely to be a bad live bettor as well. the allure is exactly what you are taking about -- big favorite falls behind, you get good odds, they come back to win, easy money. but for every instance like that there are just as many that fall flat. and depending on what software/shop you use, you have to be lightning quick as numbers/juice are in constant motion. you end up with a lot of -120/-125 bets which puts even more pressure on you to win at a higher pct. and a lot of shops also deal 30 or 40 cent live lines. in mlb, the best way i've found is to bet the preferred team a half inning prior -- say 7, 8, 9 is coming up, a likely 1-2-3 inning. Bet them before they go out on defense because you'll obviously see line jump if your projected scoreless inning comes to fruition. cbb, obviously looking for scoring droughts or a timeout to break up a wave of basket trading. cfb, slow starts on high totaled games, again, anticipating a scoring drive as once a team is in FG range, they start adjusting the number.
