    Why does 5Dimes not have live betting?

    Or am I wrong about this? I am new to 5Dimes, but I do not see live betting. I thought they were the best book?

    They do, but only for "big" games. TNT Thursday night NBA, top 25 NCAA matchups, etc.

    I want to say they have live betting on most, if not all nationally televised games for NBA

    Their live betting lines are useless, you need to place bet during commercial breaks which is next to impossible. If you want live betting lines ther are much better options like SIA, but overall 5Dimes is the best book available to US players.

    They sometimes list ahead of time which games will be live in, otherwise, if it's basketball/football/baseball on ESPN/ABC/FOX/NBC/TNT/sometimes CBS, count on it being avaliable during commercial, just refresh page.

    Best live in I see for US bettors, and pretty similar to Pinny's.

    do not live bet at 5dimes. I still do it and I know the truth these guys will say they have a live game and if it is not a real big game you can find they will stop supporting it at halftime! or better yet, they stop posting live lines in the 4th qtr. At times they will say they have a live game and not even offer one line. So if you think you have any chance of backing out of a game due to live betting you never know when they will drop the game.

    SIA juice on live lines is brutal - or is that normal amongst other books too?

    guys who think 5dimes has a lot of live betting options must have never looked at a euro book
    if you want to see live betting go look at bet365 for a start

    5dimes usually has 1 or 2 games a night for live betting.
