    What if the teams score early in the game? The over won't be offered at +100 then, will it?

    We were doing that earlier in the season in both CFL and WNBA, opening and closing trades multiple times per game.

    You have to be on top of it and I hate when live markets freeze you out.

    correct, but you could have meant something else like a platform that normally allows betting throughout but freezes it in order to keep bets from being placed at specific times in the game. some platforms only open up between innings for baseball and during commercials and change of downs for football.

    No, not like an intentional zap at the player.

    I really meant those times where lines are being offered and you can't get them. They change, they bounce off the board and back on. It's like the system is figuring out first what the market wants by putting the bet out there, but not really letting anyone transact until it can make a market.

    You hit confirm and it pauses or tells you it changed, when it didn't. Delays in broadcasts have also been a part of the same problem.

    I've seen that in the SBR Book sometimes but I think lines just change and change back.

    High vig, situations change.

    You really have to go into a game knowing what you are looking for so that when the bullets are flying and shit is hitting the fan you aren't lost in the fog of war.

    I like to identify situations where you can get a decent dog pregame and then close out the trade before they eventually give up the ass fail in the end.

    Tough game to survive at but sure exciting.

    Some use it to hedge out of a pre game bet or cut their loses

    Sometimes we pay in the line and price for the extra information that comes as the game nears as we buy near the close.

    Sometimes that information comes after the game has begun, and you may need to act.

    It's a tough gig watching the market like that, it takes time and energy.

    People around you think you are a problem gambler, when all your trying to do is protect your investment.

    lol.

    You still have to know what is value. It is no good to cover winners and give away profits.

    Exactly. People complain often about the juice given up but donít take into account how much circumstance has changed. I always liked it to poker. Youíre not going to blow your wad with pocket 10s preflop but if you flop top set with them, youíre obviously willing/wanting to get more in or at least more confident to do so.

    Disagree. I' bet more in the last few years live then pre game, and has become much more profitable. Definitely not for everyone, but it's definitely not some blow your wad in a week black hole

    It is for the vast majority :\

    Australian authorities see it as so much of a money sink hole for players they have banned live online betting for years. And if any authority in the world should be listened to about player fairness issues, it's them.

    I think you can make the same argument maybe not as fast of one but in general for sports betting. Most people suck at it.

    I think sportsbetting produces close to a known/expected profit for bookmakers. I believe live betting is out of the realm of reasonable profit when it comes to a gambling license from a responsible regulator. That's the base proposition Australian operators have not been able to come up with a decent argument against.

    There are some platforms that are centrally located and used on muliple sites.

    I think 5D and Heritage shares one of those.

    I have done most of my recent live trading at Heritage or at an actual Will Hill book in Tahoe.

    Bookmaker isn't bad and has options quicker, sometimes, than others, but I have been sort of stuck in the Heritage system, and similar ones around the world.

    I can't imagine it's the best, but then again I can't really complain.

    Vig sucks all around.

    Sometimes I've seen this happen, they update the odds but never give me a chance to bet with the new odds They're greyed out. What's the point of showing new odds if it's temporary locked? I've seen it change several times before I'm allowed to bet again!
