Live in-game betting is one of the most popular and exciting ways to bet on soccer, and sportsbooks will have lots of live markets available to bet on during World Cup matches. With live betting, the same markets you can wager on pre-match will also be available to bet on during the game itself. These include the most popular markets, including the moneyline, total or over/under goals, the point spread (or handicap as it’s commonly referred to in soccer betting), as well as prop markets such as the next goalscorer.
Sportsbooks will monitor the action on the pitch throughout games and tweak the odds accordingly. That means when big moments happen, such as a goal or red card, the odds can change significantly in the live betting markets. The key to success in live betting on the World Cup isn’t just finding a winning bet, but also being able to place that wager at the right time.
Live scores can also be handy to track if you are considering making a mid-tournament futures bet. The odds for group winners, group qualification, and the main World Cup winner and Golden Boot markets could all be affected by the action in one match. Staying on top of everything as it happens means that you’ll always be armed with the most up-to-date information when considering your World Cup bets.
