You may not have the natural footballing talent of the world class players, but you can watch a live football stream from the comfort of your living room and place recreational bets at the same time. The Internet and the modern approach to sports betting has made a lot of traditional sports betting methods obsolete.

For some people, making a second income through sports betting is the reality, but how can you go from zero to soccer betting hero in a short period? Keep reading and I’ll provide some betting tips and tricks to help you take your first few steps on your long-term sports betting journey.

You’re probably aware of the standard advice, but if you’re in need of a refresher, you can check out the basics before discovering how to bet on football with a consistent approach whilst using the Internet to stream down live football matches.


Some newbie betting tips before you go any further


If you don’t know your wager from your acca, then I recommend you review the explanations and the betting guides in other posts to give yourself a little more familiarity before trying to compete with the betting high rollers.


Discovering how to correctly manage your bankroll, controlling your emotions and risking only what you can afford to lose are standard nuggets of sports betting advice. 


You may also benefit by checking out the betting terms and glossary for a range of betting terms. It only takes a moment to learn, but making the effort could help you to profit more over time. 


Professional sports investors did not get to that position overnight, they had to put many hours into their craft to learn the basics before moving on to larger and more complex betting strategies.

Find the bets when using online streaming services

Watching a stream from a website or mobile app can dramatically affect your betting performance. The following sections will give you a helping hand, so you know how to bet on football when presented with different betting options.


I also find it difficult to know when to cash-out or stick with your bet. The section will provide more detail to help you with that decision, so you know what to do before it happens!


You can make the best use of your time by jumping through each betting and viewing issue, which affect all sports bettors when watching live football streams.

Delays, buffering and in-play betting with live football streams


There is a fundamental difference between a live stream and a real match. One is delayed sometimes up to a few minutes while the other is played during real time. Digital broadcasters delay match playback due to legal agreements, broadcast rights, video signals bouncing around satellites and streams syndicated to other television studios. 


This playback delay is further increased by the transmission of the broadcast over cable, through various worldwide server locations and transmission through Internet equipment before it reaching your screen.


The obvious way to get around this is to get as close to the live source as possible. The closest way would be watching the match live in-person at the ground, but this is often difficult (or impossible) for many people. So, the next approach would be to watch a cable, satellite or terrestrial stream of the match, which would reduce the delay as you’re closer to the original transmission. 


However, if you find that you’re watching the match through another source, which requires the transmission to bounce to your tablet or laptop (via a satellite), it’s recommended that you keep your favourite betting app open and within easy reach, so you can view the changing odds in real-time whilst you watch the live soccer stream.


The betting platforms have a real-time view of the action and provide delayed odds and delayed bet placement within their apps, which protect themselves against someone live at the ground with better real-time access to the true information. If you’re not at the ground and watching in real-time, your in-play odds within the betting app will change before you see the action on the screen due to delays throughout the system.


Placing bets on in-play markets based on what you’re watching is not a sensible long-term view, as you will very rarely see an event on screen and be permitted to immediately place a bet. The delayed bet placement feature on all in-play betting platforms and prevention of betting during major moments, such as corners, goals and bookings all prevent you from taking advantage of miss-priced odds as they change.


Deciding on possible in-play betting winners is not the same as believing one team will beat another. You should have a number of inplay betting alerts to show that your prejudgment is a valid selection.


The best way to succeed, is to have an idea of your bets before you watch the match. Understanding possible bets will help you to decide on the most probable selections, which gives you the benefit of foresight. Allowing you to make a better judgement on a match by match basis. 

What does this really mean and how can this work for you?


There are two ways to make this work? 


1. You can either place a bet on your preferred outcome before the match takes place and then use the in-play information to cash out at the most appropriate time. This means that you’re not basing your bets on the live match in-front of you, but you’re using the bookie information to decide the most appropriate return to cash-out based on the factors in front of you.

2. You could make a prediction in your head and keep it in mind before the match starts. You can then place a bet when the in-play odds or soccer statistics appear to be favourable, so you’re not basing your view on the delayed match, but you have an idea and you’re watching the changing betting market before placing your bet.

Now, you understand the matches are delayed and how to get around the match delay. You will need to understand what’s happening on the pitch…

Match stats shown during the live stream



This was mentioned above, but I will provide more detail, so you can improve your betting performance when watching live streams.


The two fundamental points to remember; 
a) the online match will have a delay
b) the mobile app or website will prevent you from placing an immediate bet. 

The two points combine to reduce your likelihood of making faster betting decisions than the bookmakers or the wider betting market. Your download speed or your super faster Internet connection will not provide a significant betting advantage to you and you will need to make adjustments to compensate for this outcome.


So, that’s why you have to review live in-play match football stats and make betting decisions based on what’s happening in-play and what you decided before the match. Combining pre-match stats and in-play match stats will help you see if a certain outcome is starting to look more likely and ensure that you can make better betting decisions than the majority of the market.


Pre-match stats to help with in-play betting?
If you choose your team from the soccer stats area, you can then find out the betting stats for their upcoming fixture. This will help you to choose the best bets based upon the statistical likelihood of the event. 


However, once you have the pre-match data, you can start to watch the streamed matches and check out the in-game stats (sometimes provided within video playback, but always provided on standard betting websites). This will help you to judge the the most effective bet, as you have already discovered the best betting options based on the individual team stats information for your team.


Ok. You’re almost there, as you know about the delayed matches from the broadcasters, you know about the pre-match and in-play betting stats, but what happens when a team scores a goal?

Goals and goal attempts affect your in-play betting


Goals change the live streaming, the overall betting experience and the in-play betting process. The delayed playback will affect the real-time nature of your betting, but goals scored will have the most dramatic impact.


When goals are scored all betting platforms will prevent bet placement as their algorithms work behind the scenes to change odds across the different betting options The delay will not only affect your ability to place a bet, but it will change your future betting options. Therefore, a bet that looked like good value before the first goal may look a lot different after a goal is scored.

The changing betting experience is not helped by jerkiness, latency or buffering. So, how do you win more bets when everything is stacked against you?


In my opinion, the best way to success is to review the stats before match, so you know the best bets before the odds change. You can then make better betting decisions, as you already know the best bets BEFORE the goals are scored. If a team is 60% likely to win match and they score the first goal, the team is still 60% likely to win, so you already know the best bets even if the matches move against you.


Ok. You’ve now worked out how a team scoring a goal can negatively affect your betting performance. It may also be good to understand how may cause you to wait too long before cashing out a bet.

Chasing improved in-play returns and drifting odds


The odds will always move and waiting for improved returns or drifting odds to increase your cash-out payment is gambling on two sides. You’re not only hoping your bet wins, but you’re also hoping that you get improved returns if you wait...just a little longer...before clicking that cash-out button!


This is where you will lose vast amounts of money over the long-term. If you’re confident of your selection you should commit and make the bet or cash-out, irrespective of the changing odds, as you will never be close enough to the action to place a bet at the ideal time. 


Remember, all in-play betting services prevent immediate bet placement and delay your bets. This means that even if your video were real-time; you would still always be behind the bookmaker’s algorithms when it comes to in-play betting.


Betting and watching football and the same time is great fun, but just understand that you have to be clever to beat the bookie at their game!

Good Luck!
