The Super Bowl isn’t just the biggest sporting spectacle in the US. Over recent years, it has become a global occasion, watched by sports enthusiasts across Europe, Asia and the rest of the world. It also attracts more wagers than any other single sporting event. But these days, there is more to Super Bowl betting than just putting a couple of dollars on one team or the other to lift the Vince Lombardi Trophy.
The problem with traditional Super Bowl betting is that there are so many millions of people placing bets that the bookmakers will always be conservative when it comes to posting odds. Live betting is an exciting alternative that gives bettors a chance to take advantage of superior odds – but it takes courage and clear thinking. If you’d like to give live betting a try at Super Bowl LVII, you need to start practicing now while the regular season is still in play.
About live betting
Initially developed in the world of soccer, the best betting sites in the USA offer live or “in play” betting on a wide variety of sports – including NFL. It’s a unique type of betting in that the bookmakers continue to accept bets after the game has started, adjusting the odds according to the ebb and flow of the game. Advantage betting means knowing what bets to place, and more to the point, when to place them.
Let’s imagine Buffalo and Philadelphia are the combatants in this year’s Super Bowl and Buffalo are favorites by 3.5 points. Now suppose the Eagles get off to a great start with an early touchdown. The bookies are likely to shift the odds in their favor, and this could be an ideal moment to put a few dollars on Buffalo – after all, let’s remember they were favorites for the game and there is still a long way to go. In short, live betting provides a great opportunity to wait for the odds to improve before placing a bet – but timing is everything.
A great range of prop bets
Making moneyline bets while the game is in progress is one way of using live betting to get the best odds. But there are plenty of other options, too. The range of proposition bets is almost limitless. For example, you can bet on who will score the next touchdown or, in our theoretical Super Bowl example, how many passing yards Josh Allen will achieve in the first half.
Risks of live betting
Live betting is fast and furious. That can be a curse as well as a blessing, as it means you need to keep a clear head in what can be highly stressful and constantly changing circumstances. If you like to relax in your armchair in front of the game rather than paying constant attention, live betting is probably not for you. It is also easy to get carried away and place more and more bets, so strict self-discipline and bankroll management are vital.Copyright © 2022 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
