Sports Betting in Esports – Live Streaming and Dead Betting
In order to successfully make a profit from sports betting, you need to have a winning edge – odds that greatly reduce the spread between the odds and the bookmakers’ strike rate. To achieve this, you should know how the system works. In short, there are basically two types of betting systems in sports betting: live and dead. Let’s take a look at them below.
Live betting – The live betting system is where you make your bets while the sports event is still going on. As the name suggests, your bets are happening while the actual game is going on. You may make many of the same traditional bets that you used to on regular sports betting such as: total points scored, highest scores, net points (point difference in total score – team score difference), and the like. This type of betting works best for basketball and soccer events because the outcome is already set and you don’t need to wait until the end of the game or the next day to find out if you’ve won or lost.
Dead betting – If you’re a seasoned professional who has been in the business for quite some time, you know that betting on almost all sports events can be very profitable. However, with live streaming, you get the advantage of seeing exactly what’s happening even before the game has started. One of the major advantages of this type of betting is that you have a better understanding of the teams and their strengths and weaknesses. You also get to watch the team’s key players and more importantly, their respective coaches. This can be very important information if you want to bet intelligently and maximize your chances of winning.
