    Live betting?

    In the Purdue/Illinois game tonight, early on I saw Illinois was +414 and later in the 1st half Purdue was losing so they had moved to -150. With those odds, you could have locked up close to 26% ROI. Is this something that would be feasible in the long term, and is it something that is allowed?

    It is allowed.

    It is only feasible in the long run if the plays you make have value.

    On bodog I made a ML bet on Vandy tonight +660 when they were down 13 in the first half, and then they never posted a ML in live betting the entire second half. It is just a coincidence or could they possibly have done something so that I was unable to see a new ML in order to make a bet on the other side?

    BoDog is not great for live betting, very erratic and inconsistent

    JJ is right here. If the lead never changes, or one team romps, then you can very easily get buried. Also, I have noticed that sometimes the book just STOPS putting up live in game betting outta nowhere. Especially hurts when you're waiting to get + money on the other team, and nothing is there. Continue at your own risk

    It is very possible that you were froze out. I don't fukc with live betting for many reasons, that being one of them. It's one thing to get dealt square lines, it's a whole 'nother thing to not get dealt at all.

    Books would really need to improve their live betting options for US.

    Are there any books for USA customers with live betting that are better than the rest?
