Live betting is one of the most popular attractions for football betting online, with punters able to place bets “in play”. Certain online sports books like Bet365 offer multiple betting options pre kick off and in running. The usefulness of in play betting is that punters can get better value and make decisions based on what they have viewed in the match so far.

For instance, Liverpool may be playing Arsenal. A punter wants to back Liverpool, and the odds pre kick-off are 1.75. The user decides that this is not great value and they think it might be a tight game. The game starts and Arsenal score an early goal. The odds the online sportsbook for a Liverpool win goes to 4.0. The punter watching the game decides that Arsenal were very lucky to score and Liverpool are dominating play. Therefore, the punter bets online in-running at 25minutes play. They back Liverpool for £10 at 4.0. Liverpool then come back and eventually win 2-1. The punter makes £30 profit. If they had backed pre kick off with the same £10 stake, they would have made £7.50 profit.

The above illustration is for 1×2 betting market, but as mentioned, bookmakers offer multiple betting markets in-play. For example, over/under 2.5 goals, Asian Handicaps, to score, correct score and to score next.
