    Live more dangerous huge moneylines a lot sexier live with big leads or low time on the clock than they are pre game. You could have 5 or 6 figures in your account and be allin in like 20 seconds on a team with a big lead.

    Cannot say with certainty because I have yet to make a live bet but I do suck with pregame wagers so I got that going for me..
    I'm afraid if I started betting live, I would never walk away from the computer..

    i make money live betting about 4 out of 7 times. the juice hurts.

    i use it when a good team is down quickly by a lot and you know they will come back.

    Hell yeah! There are days that I can spend all day/night live wagering. And then upset when there's nothing else to bet but esports at 10pm (PST).

    If I'm winning the pre-game bet, I won't bet live. If losing the pre-game, chances are a live bet will occur...

    I bet more on the pre-games though.. Usually.

    It is pretty simple.... If you have a solid play, you will bet it pregame....If you are undecided, you will wait for live hoping for a better line, and if you can't get one, then you will forget the game. If you are like me and need action ASAP, especially if chasing.......you will look for the first game live that looks good and hit it...BOTTOM LINE

    If there were a common edge to live betting, the industry wouldn't offer it....

    So that eliminates 99% of this thread's contributors...

    Depends on the book. Some books get scared to offer lines consistently. Bookmaker has too much volume so they pick or choose when they want to display lines only to their benefit late in games.
    Other books who leave their live lines open too long get beat up and then boot you off live or delay your bet acceptance. So thereís no real win. Live betting is much easier to determine game winners but you canít get the volume down or the opportunities as much as you can pregame.

    I like to live bet teams that were a small fav at the closing line, but are losing early after for example a 8-0 run in bball, or down 7-10 in football. The live spread always over reacts, and you can grab the pre game fav at a + number now with more times than not decent odds.

    getting a pre game -3 fav, now +1 or +2 live in bball is huge.

    Perfect example last night. I had the Bruins as my main bet. -150 area...

    They are down 3-0 in the second period. I go into William Hill and they have the over total at 5 1/2 +135... I could not believe it... Jumped right on that over.

    The Bruins tied it up 3-3 and thought I was going to win both bets. But it was not to happen...

    Live betting is awesome. I have lost in those cases. Yet, It is always great to have a second chance..
