A sport betting is the activity of predicting the sport results by putting a stake on a certain result of a sport event. Each of the possible result has an odd, which represents the connection between the stake and the gain.
The most exciting way of betting on sports is live betting. If you are a fan of sports, adrenaline and gambling, you can have them all with live betting. The advantage of live betting is that you can anticipate easier how the game will end, increasing your winning chances. The disadvantage is that the maximum sum of money that you can put on live bets is quite small, so your gain will be limited.
A lot of gamblers believed, as they entered an online bookmaker that they can bet as soon as a team receives a penalty or scores a surprising goal. Well, this is only a myth, because the sportsbooks have real-time transmissions and any live bet is validated in an interval of 4 to 8 seconds.
There are certain types of bets that you can make before the game starts, but also live. One of them is the direct bet, where you can pick a winner or a draw, for the end of the game. The rules for this type of bet can vary, depending on the game, or on the bookmaker. This bet is also called “1×2”, where 1 means that the hosts win, 2 is for the guests and x is for draw. Most of the bookies offer mixed bets, or “the double chance”, which means 1x, x2 or 12.
In the last years, the online bookmakers have gained ground in front of the classic ones. The main advantages of the online sportsbooks are that you do not have to go out every time you want to gamble and you can see the sports betting offer directly on your computer.
As soon as you make up your mind on how you want to bet, all you have to do is click your bet away. Most of the times the odds offered by the online bookies are even bigger than the other ones and the number of online sportsbooks is increasing everyday, so you get to choose the one that suit you the best.
