“Sports betting is a business.”
If you’re a regular reader of our blog posts, you must have seen the above sentence a couple of times.
It’s worth repeating in this blog post because it’s the truth.
It’s the one business in which you can make a 1000% percent return on your investment in as little as a day – or less sef. The multiple betting markets and options available make earning money possible in more ways than one.
Speaking of more ways than one, there are a number of ways you can actually place your bets, especially if you’re a NairaBET customer. The options range from book-a-bet, visiting a bet shop to place your bets, and of course playing online.

Playing online is split into two parts, which is the topic up for discussion in today’s post.
On one side, there’s the normal betting and on the other hand, there’s what we call in-play betting. What’s the difference between them?
Normal betting involves going online, making your selection, funding your bet slip and placing your bet. For in-play betting, bettors get the chance to bet on games while they’re being played.
Now that you recognise the difference – in case you didn’t know before reading this post – which of these two do you prefer? To help you with this question, let’s compare both betting options.
Long term vs. Short term
For normal betting, every bettor has to look through the list of available of games for a specific period. This means that this option of betting provides you with a chance of accumulating games over a week, or two or even a month. That’s the beauty of normal betting.
As for betting on live games, you can only bet on whatever sporting event is available at that particular time. You also have to wait before the event starts before you place your bets, unlike in normal betting.
Static Odds vs. Changing Odds
Whether normal or in-play betting, the odds of a particular event can be influenced by a number of factors including weather, injury being suffered by a key player, suspension and all.
While these odd changes may be subtle before the game, they’re made even more obvious while the event/game is on.
For example, Team A to score over 5,5 tries in a Rugby game is priced at 2.10. This is before the game begins. What happens when the game begins is that the odds begin to flunctuate, depending on which direction the game is headed.
The more tries Team A scores, the lower that odd will become. The harder it is for Team A to reach Over 5,5 tries, the higher that odd will climb.
Both betting options offer bettors the chance to accumulate games. Both also serve as an extra source of income. But with the differences mentioned above, which of them would you prefer? Which option would you love to play in?
