Mechanics of In-Play Betting
There’s nothing new, actually. It works the way regular sports betting does. Let’s say in a soccer game, odds generally settle and reflect the possible winners when the teams are announced and the match nears. For example, in the home field is Liverpool against Man Utd. At the start of the game, the odds might be with draw at 4/1 (5.0), Man U at 2/5 (1.71), and Liverpool at 4/1 (5.0).
When the match starts, the bookmaker will furiously update the odds according to the game standing. Thus, betting price will change. At the start, Liverpool may enjoy possession but if they score, it will be different picture.
The odds will be Liverpool dropping to 5/4 (2.2), United with 6/4 (2.5) and draw down to 3/1 (4.0). There can never be stability as the odds may change a number of times throughout the match. Your bet can revolve around the correct score, next scorer, next goal and other markets.
The best tip in in-play betting is beating the over-round and outsmarting your bookmaker’s traders. If you succeed, then you will make a good profit.
There are few systems in the in-play betting, but most are surefire systems that are pure scam. One is “Lay the Draw” which generally promises riches to you. This system works well with Betfair in betting for or against (laying) outcomes.
The process is, choosing first the football match before it starts then bet against the draw.The typical price in football matches ranges from 4.0 to 5.0 in decimal odds. This is equivalent to a 3/1 or 4/1. You need to back the draw during the first goal because its draw will increase.
Using an arbitrage calculator helps you to determine the right amount in backing such to make a guaranteed profit whatever happens.
But don’t be complacent for there are times when you lose due to an unexpected goal of the underdog where the draw odds will shorten or a long-staying 0-0 score with no goals expected to come.
It takes a lot of expertise in gauging the in-play system. Watch the in-play market before you bet and know as much you can about outsmarting your bookie and number crunching. Always know that it’s best to pounce when you see a very high price for a match that is not expected to garner such price.
