One of the most exciting times in sports is during the SuperBowl. Not only do you get to watch the most popular sports stars on screen, but you also get to bet on which team will win. But did you know that you can use the same betting system to place bets on other sports as well? It’s called live game line betting (LGBI), and it’s a brilliant way to make some money in the sports you love most. Let’s take a look at how it works.
What Is LGBI?
LGBI stands for live game line betting and is one of the more popular sports betting systems around. If you’re familiar with the TV show Jeopardy!, then you might recognize the name. It’s basically trying to apply the same method of problem-solving to sports. Instead of using a television screen to display the answers, you use the answers themselves as the questions. This can be a little confusing, but it makes perfect sense when you think about it. After all, you’re always going to have the questions (games) and you choose which answers (teams) to use. Let’s take a quick look at how it works.
How Do I Place A Bet?
To place a bet with LGBI, you will need access to a sportsbook account. Just like any other sportsbook, you can get a free account at BetOnline.ag and make your first deposit. After making a deposit you’ll receive a welcome email from the bookmakers with further instructions. Once you’ve logged in, you’ll see the current promotions at the top of the page. Click the button to the right of the entry you wish to use. This will take you to the game lines page. Here you’ll see a variety of sports and your chosen betting option (i.e. moneyline, totals, or props).
For example, let’s say you love the San Francisco 49ers and want to make sure they win the Super Bowl this year. You would click the green button next to 49ers -13 and make a wager of $100 on their game this coming Sunday.
Can I Use My Credit Card On Line?
Most places that you might wager at won’t allow you to use your credit card on line. If you do want to use your credit card, then you will need to call the 800 number and place your wager elsewhere. Be sure to check with the bookie before placing that large of a wager as you might not be able to withdraw that amount immediately.
What Is The Withdrawal Process?
Withdrawing winnings and making deposits are both easy processes, and it’s probably best to do them as soon as you posses the winning ticket. Trying to keep track of your winnings and make sure you don’t go over the limit is too much hassle. When withdrawing your winnings, the bookie will ask for your account number and full name. After that, you’ll receive a code by email that you can use to confirm your withdrawal.
If you’re worried about running into problems with gambling addiction or have a gambling problem, then be sure to check out the bookmaker’s page for information on how to curb your habit.
More Than Meets The Eye
While placing bets with game line is exciting and quite profitable, it’s not all that’s involved. You’ll also need to be aware of the scores of the games you’re betting on. If you’re not familiar with the concept of parlays, then they’re simple enough to explain. Essentially, a parlay is when you combine two or more bets into one wager. For example, let’s say you bet $100 on the 49ers and Giants in the Superbowl and they both end up winning. You would end up winning $200 in cash (your $100 win plus the $100 you bet on the Giants).
Now, if you were to place another bet on the New England Patriots (this time a $100 wager) then you would end up covering the parlay, and the 49ers and Giants would win only $100. The key point to remember is that you’re combining multiple bets into one, and the payout is usually based on the amount you initially wagered. So, in this case, your $200 win would be divided by two, or $100 each. This is how you end up with a $50 profit for each game you’ve bet on (assuming both teams win).
Place Your Bets Pronto
Above all else, make sure you place your bets pronto. The longer you wait, the more likely it is that the game will be over, the odds will have changed, and you’ll no longer be able to place a wager. Keep in mind that the sooner you place your wager, the more you’ll earn, but the more you’ll risk losing. If you do get in over your head and can’t pay your debts, then you’ll have to put your house and anything you have left on the line. This is not something to take lightly. Even the most skilled and knowledgeable gamblers have wound up in financial straits due to imprudence in this area. So make sure you’re careful and stay within your means.
Hopefully, this article gave you a good idea of how LGBI works and how to get started. This is one of the safer and more reliable ways to make money off sports, especially during big events like the Superbowl. Of course, remember: the luck of the Irish isn’t necessarily going to land you in riches, but it probably will make you feel better about yourself.
