Live betting allows sports bettors to bet at online sportsbooks on games that are already in progress. Also known as in-game betting, this style of online betting features lines and odds that can change every few seconds.

The emergence of in-game betting equates to hundreds of opportunities on a given game for astute sports bettors.

Online sports betting is legal in more than 15 states. Our reviews of legal online sports betting states here at inlcude:

Michigan Live Betting

Michigan hosts one of the most vibrant online sports betting markets in the U.S. The Michigan sports betting market includes top brands like FanDuel, DraftKings, BetMGM, Caesars Sportsbook, and PointsBet.

All of those brands offer live betting, making the Michigan online sports betting industry one of the tops in the U.S. market in terms of in-game betting availability.

Online sports betting, including in-game wagering, is projected to launch in the following states in the future:

Maryland Live Betting

Online sports betting is legal in Maryland, and bettors in the state await the launch of Maryland online sportsbooks. Once the state’s mobile sports betting apps launch, expect Maryland sports betting sites to offer a comprehensive set of in-game betting markets.

Ohio Live Betting

Ohio sports betting sites are set to launch on Jan. 1, 2023. Virtually all of the top online sportsbook brands will offer legal wagering in the Buckeye State.

Bettors can look forward to plenty of live betting options on Ohio sports betting apps.

California Live Betting

California would become the biggest legal sports betting market in the U.S. if online sports betting became legal. That could become a reality if California voters approve an online sports betting measure that’s expected to appear on the November 2020 ballot.

Live betting would emerge as one of the most popular ways to wager on sports in California if legal sports betting gets the green light.

Texas Live Betting

Much like California, sports betting isn’t yet legal in the potentially massive Texas market. While no immediate legislation is on the horizon for Texas sports betting, the Lone Star State is a prime candidate to offer legal sports betting at some point.

Texas online sportsbooks would offer a wide array of in-game betting options if sports betting was approved in the state.
