Bovada Live Betting

Bovada live betting is a unique form of sports betting where the games or matches are being played when you place a bet. The sportsbook offers live betting for badminton, baseball, basketball, cricket, football, golf, handball, hockey, soccer, tennis, volleyball, and water polo. Plus, there are live betting options for MLB Home Run Derby and drafts on most major sports.

When you find a live bet you can place, a screen loads that shows a virtual representation of the plays. You're allowed to wager until the first goal/score takes place or a red card or penalty is called. At that time, clicking on a betting option will no longer work. If this happens and the system glitches and fails to stop you from being able to wager, Bovada can cancel your bet.

What Kinds of Bets Can You Place?

There are a variety of betting options that may involve scores or answers to questions. For example, if you're betting on a current soccer game, you might answer questions like these:

  • Which half will have the highest score?
  • Will both teams score in the second half?
  • Who will win?

Betting on a hockey game will lead to questions and betting options like these:

  • A power-play goal will happen in the first period.
  • Gordie Howe will complete a hat trick.
  • Which team will be the first to four goals?
  • Will the game go into overtime?
  • Who will score the first goal?

Rules to Keep in Mind

The bets are listed under the live betting options and odds are listed to the right of each bet. When you're ready to place your wager, click on the item, place your bet, and add it to your bet slip. The bet slip is found on the right.

As you add a bet to the betting ticket, the amount you risk is on the left and the potential winnings are in the box to the right of that. The bet slip shows the number of bets you've placed, your total stake, and the possible winnings. It's clearly laid out, so you know exactly what you're risking vs. what you can win in Bovada live betting.
