For example, with a score of 2:1 it is necessary to perform a live bet on ITB1 (4.5). Opposition should be selected according to the following criteria:
- the receiving side is encouraged to attack, that is, the game is not in favor of the hosts;
- the owners of the field were considered by bookmakers the favorites of the meeting;
- the visitors prepared for a defensive game, replacing the attacking players with defenders;
- flank players of the host side make a lot of crosses, shot passes into the penalty area;
- The visiting team has practically stopped attacking the opponent’s goal.
The next effective strategy is considered to be live betting on the late ball. The idea is to wager on one more goal 10 to 15 minutes before the final whistle. For example, if the score of the confrontation is 2:2, a live bet on TB 3.5 should be made. To select the match should be under the following conditions:
- the difference in the score should not be higher than 2 points;
- Clubs create a lot of dangerous moments during the second half;

Bettor need for 15 … 20 minutes before the end of the confrontation to make a bet on what will be shown at least another 3 “mustard”. For example, if the number of cautions is 2:1, it is necessary to bet on the TB 5.5. This system of live betting is used under the following parameters:
- the match is crucial for both clubs;
- The head referee made a lot of verbal warnings in the 2nd half;

- choose oppositions with odds on the triumph of the conditionally weaker team from 2.0;
- Allocate no more than 1…2% of the available bankroll to the first live bet;
- Double every next bet.
If the current match does not bring a victory, it is necessary to continue to bet according to the chosen system in the next match of the team.
Methods of insurance for live betting
Live bets are insured in case of uncertainty of the predicted result. To reinsure, you should bet on the outcome that is directly or indirectly opposite to the more likely one. Such an approach helps to reduce or fully compensate for the possible loss of funds.
To take the APL match “Fulham” – “Leeds” (19.03.2021) as an example. Suppose the bettor made a live bet on the score 1:1 in the first half. At the end of the first half the visitors began to attack more actively to prove their superiority. In order not to take any risks, it was enough for the bettor to bet additionally on the outcome of the first half 1:2.
