Delayed streams and betting in-play + court-siding. What do you do?

Recommended Posts

I bet a lot on in-play during the game. Mostly on the exchanges. I watch the game on live streams. Though my internet is fibreoptics, I have noticed that the streams are delayed when though they dont seem to be lagging behind the TV. So basically, betfair market is already suspended BEFORE the scored goal is shown on the TV. I know people are "court-siding" and betting from stadiums, but I didnt think the difference was more than a second at most. Question - How do you guys who bet in-play keep up with the game? Where do you watch it? Any site you can refer me to which has really quick streams. I dont mind paying. Or is it that the TV channel as a whole lags behind betfair?

Almost all streams are delayed - certainly the ones I use are. As far as I know, bookmakers themselves use 'real-time' streams. That's how they know what's happened before the punters (but they also apply a delay for in-play bets). I don't know the answer, but I guess that real-time streams would theoretically be available to the private individual, but they would be pretty expensive. Perhaps there is a market supplying real-time streams to private individuals? But as bookmakers apply a time-delay for in-play bets, you would still be betting 'behind' the event.

Re: Delayed streams and betting in-play + court-siding. What do you do? @MPLoius I am not trying to beat the bookmakers inbuilt 10 second delay. No. I am trying to guage a sense of where the game is at. Forget bookmakers and the betfair delay. I am trying to know exactly where the game before i place my bets accordingly. more money gets matched in-play than pre-match. normally the difference is like 10million in-play and 2million prematch on decent markets (and i am not talking about Champions league either. Take any PL match, cricket, etc for example). I am sure these people are not all courtsiders. And not all are stupid either. I think some can be bookmakers but I believe they use streams which arent delayed by more than a second for example. We all know, big bookmakers and betfair has their own people in the ground. So they are fast. Surely a punter can use a combination of a "fast channel" + in-play fast bookmaker and know if the match is running normally and you are not betting just "after" the seconds a goal happens. I think by using a combination of these things we can get the right idea of where the game is at. I was hoping others use similar methods.

Re: Delayed streams and betting in-play + court-siding. What do you do? Even TV has a delay of 15-20 seconds. It's impossible to have a stream with a few seconds delay as they are further behind TV. I would also advise you never to pay for streams.

Re: Delayed streams and betting in-play + court-siding. What do you do? ok, the only way that i can be guaranteed to be 2 seconds behind seeing it with your own eyes...which is 9 - 10 seconds ahead of live streams n sky... Get yourself an old non digital radio, medium wave is 2 seconds behind, fm is 3 seconds.;) Digital is 6 seconds behind. As soon as you hear a goal go in on MW, 3 seconds later it will suspend on BF...But you can anticipate in advance, given a decent commentary. Feck ive just give my secret away...:eek GL with it, and of course you have to be on a game that MW are comentating on....The lower leagues are the best, given the monitaring situation on BF. Anything thru digital is a lost cause, also there are plenty on a phone watching games, talking to their oppo, They are the big players in running!

Re: Delayed streams and betting in-play + court-siding. What do you do? Primeaval, i read somewhere that people used to text/sms across countries in some games. Used to be much faster than any TV, radio commentary like you said. I guess these "big fish" would be making big money. But then i think maybe betfair has its own reporters on the phone as well who suspend markets asap. no?

Primeaval' date=' i read somewhere that people used to text/sms across countries in some games. Used to be much faster than any TV, radio commentary like you said. I guess these "big fish" would be making big money. But then i think maybe betfair has its own reporters on the phone as well who suspend markets asap. no?[/quote'] TXT is true, but can be hit n miss, there are people in boxes, just like race courses who pay mega bucks to have the ability to watch n play, via the clubs WIFI. Yes BF do have monitored games , however that still has to go via FIBRE OPTIC to London, for them to suspend.... Now were you might be ahead , outside the championship(i.e.lower), the games are unlikely to be monitored, I have been ahead on Tranmere games, and some Rugby League games via the MW signal...It takes alot of mental concentration, and believe me you are drained by the end, but you can be well rewarded, and of course in most cases you will GREEN up. GL with it m8, also it depends on were you live, the MW signal is pretty good in the north west, and is a hot bed for sport.
