A common expression among footballers and pundits, 'early doors' simply means early in a game. It is believed to originate in northern England as a term to describe the early closing of a public house. Example: "We nicked a goal early doors and then it was just a case of shutting up shop to grind out the win. Example: Explaining the position, Lionel Messi said: "[Pep Guardiola] had been talking with Tito Vilanova and they had thought about me playing as a false nine.
The term 'Fergie's Fledglings' describes the clutch of young players who graduated from the Manchester United academy to the first team under the tutelage of Sir Alex Ferguson. It is inspired by the Busby Babes. First used in the s, the fact that Ferguson could often be seen pointing at his watch on the sideline and his teams scored plenty of late goals contributed to the perception.
Example: "Back in the season, with Manchester United and Sheffield Wednesday drawing , seven minutes of time was added at the end and Steve Bruce scored a winner. Thus Fergie Time was born. The term evokes the idea of cunning which is commonly associated with foxes. Example: "Michael Owen had bags of pace so he could always get in behind defences, but he was also a fox in the box - a total nightmare for defenders to keep an eye on.
The football pyramid is the term for a football league system which is bound together as a unit by promotion and relegation. In England, for example, it is possible for a club to progress from non-league football to the Premier League and vice versa. When someone says a player "must have a foot like a traction engine" they mean that they have a powerful shot.
The phrase comes from the satirical British television show The Day Today. Did you see that? He must have a foot like a traction engine! The 'gaffer' is the head coach or manager of a football team. Example: "We always knew the game was going to be tough, but the gaffer prepared us well and we got the job done.
A galactico is a player who is 'out of this world'. Football is by definition a game of two minute periods broken up by a 15 minute half-time interval. The pitch itself is also divided into two halves. It is a command against sitting back and allowing an opponent to play. Example: "We showed them a little too much respect in the first half, standing off a bit, so the manager told us to get stuck in in the second half.
A ghost goal is a goal that has been awarded despite the whole of the ball not crossing the line. Ghost goals are now increasingly unlikely thanks to VAR and goal-line technology, but can still occur. In football, a giant-killing is when a top level club is beaten in a cup competition by a club of much smaller stature, usually from a number of tiers below the top.
The term evokes the imagery of the biblical story of David and Goliath. A golden goal is a method of deciding a game that has gone into extra-time, where the team which scores first wins. A Group of Death is used to describe a group in a tournament such as the World Cup that is made up entirely of teams who are considered very strong.
Example: "Brazil served up a number of groups that were considered competitive enough to be described as 'Groups of Death'. The 'hairdryer treatment' is a euphemism for a furious verbal assault on a player or players by a manager. The idea is that a constant stream of hot hair is blown into one's face.
Example: "Manchester United were so bad in that first half that there is no doubt Alex Ferguson will give them the hairdryer treatment. Maradona illegally used his hand to punch the ball past England goalkeeper Peter Shilton and into the back of the net. Despite protestations, the goal was awarded. When one player scores three goals in a single game it is known as a hat-trick.
The term 'heavy metal football' describes the style of play implemented by German football coach Jurgen Klopp. As a style, it is high intensity and fast, involving rapid counter-attacking moves. A 'Hollywood pass' is a pass which looks impressive, but doesn't necessarily achieve much, such as a cross-field diagonal ball. Example: "Steven Gerrard is incredibly gifted, but he tries too many Hollywood passes when he should just keep it simple.
To 'hoof the ball' is to aimlessly clear the ball out of defence instead of carefully picking a pass. Example: "Everyone wants Ireland to play it out from the back, so why are they always hoofing the ball? It exposes bad decision-making on the part of the passer. Example: "His passing is normally very accurate, but he's sold his team-mate short there with a complete hospital pass.
A 'howler' is an embarrassing mistake, usually made under little pressure. Goalkeepers are most associated with howlers, but it can happen to any player on the pitch. Example: "What seemed like a routine pass back has turned into a nightmare situation for the goalkeeper. What a howler! When a player is deemed to be in another player's pocket, they are being kept under control. The term 'in his pocket' is normally used to indicate when a defender has marked an attacker well.
Example: "Not many people can keep Sergio Aguero quiet, but Virgil van Dijk has had him in his pocket all afternoon. Normal time in football is 90 minutes, but a referee can add on time at the end of the match based on stoppages for injuries and so forth. This is known as injury time.
Other names include stoppage time and added time. When a player is described as playing 'in the hole' it means they are occupying the space between midfield and attack. Putting the ball 'into row Z' means clearing it as far and high as possible in order to avert danger. The idea is that row Z is the highest part of the stadium.
La Masia is the name of Barcelona's youth academy, where young footballers are educated and trained. La Masia is a Catalan word which means 'the Farmhouse'.

Example: "He started well and they bought into the philosophy, but when he stripped the captain of the armband he lost the dressing room.
The 'magic sponge' is a tongue-in-cheek term for the rudimentary medical treatment of an injury through the use of a wet sponge. Example: "When Eden Hazard went down it looked fairly serious, but he's back up again now thanks to the magic sponge. A head coach is described as a 'man manager' if they are considered particularly adept at motivating different players. A good man manager usually possesses good communication skills and emotional intuition.
The 'man of the match' is the player who is judged to have played the best or had the most influence on a game. Match fixing in football is when the outcome of a particular game is deliberately influenced in order that someone - be it a player, players or criminal enterprise - can financially benefit.
Match fixing is a serious offence which can result in prosecution. If a country has a number of cup competitions, the 'Mickey Mouse cup' is usually the one which has the lowest financial reward. When the ball is said to 'hit the woodwork' or 'come off the woodwork' it means it has hit the post or crossbar. The term is a throwback to a time when goalposts were made out of wood.
If one posits that a player cannot play 'on a cold, wet Wednesday night in Stoke' it means they would struggle to perform in England. An own goal happens when a player puts the ball into his own net. An own goal is often a source of deep disappointment for a player and can haunt them through the remainder of a game, particularly if their team loses. The Panenka is the name for a penalty kick that is chipped delicately into the back of the net.
Named after Czech footballer Antonin Panenka, the technique has been deployed by the likes of Zinedine Zidane and Andrea Pirlo among others. When a team 'parks the bus' it means that they played a completely defensive game with little or no intent of attacking. The term was coined by Jose Mourinho in his first stint as Chelsea manager when he accused Tottenham of 'bringing the bus' and leaving it in front of goal. Ironically, the term would later come to define Mourinho's tactical style.
Example: Mourinho talking about his Inter team beating Barcelona in "We won the tie in Barcelona but everyone talks about Barcelona winning and says we parked the bus in front of the goal. We didn't park the bus, we parked the plane and we did it for two reasons. One, because we only had 10 men and two, because we beat them at San Siro, not by parking the bus, or the boat or the airplane but by smashing them. A 'poacher' in football is a striker who is opportunistic and takes their chances.
The Poznan, also known as The Grecque, is a celebratory dance performed by supporters in order to taunt the opposition. The supporters turn their backs to the pitch, link arms and proceed to jump up and down while chanting their preferred song. The implication is that their team is so good that they know they will win - they do not need to watch. A professional foul is when a player deliberately obstructs an opponent in order to prevent them from scoring a goal or initiating a counter attack.
It is a cynical pre-meditated tactic which is punished by a yellow card and sometimes a red card, depending on the severity of the foul. Example: "Lionel Messi dribbled past four players before putting it on a plate for Luis Suarez to tap in. A 'rabona' is a skill move which involves kicking the ball with one's legs crossed by wrapping the kicking leg behind the standing leg. Rabona is the Spanish term for skipping school and the move involves a level of deception.
Remontada is the Spanish word for 'recovery' or 'comeback' and it is used to describe a remarkable turnaround in fortunes by a team that had been on course to lose. Sarriball or Sarrismo is the term used to describe the tactical style of football employed by Italian football coach Maurizio Sarri.

A totals line of 44 to start can easily jump to 54 if there is double digit scoring in the first quarter. An over 44 bet before the game and an under 54 bet during live betting is a 10 point middle only seen during live betting.
If the game goes over the 54 bet you lose one way and win the over 44 total. Worth it every time! The types of live bets offered are going to vary greatly depending on the sport and where you are betting. It requires a great deal of manpower and technology for a sportsbook to run live betting operations. They have to set new lines in real time and do not have days or weeks to post their number like normal bets.
For all of these reasons, the types of bets offered are going to vary around the spread, money line and totals. The exciting reasons about live sports betting is there are so many great benefits and reasons to play that did not exist before. A lot of the benefits are similar to those you get from traditional wagers but are amplified with this new style. What are some of the most popular reasons people get involved with live sports betting.
Technically, the odds on all bets are supposed to be correct or accurate to the final score. The sportsbooks spend lots of time and money hiring professionals or setting up computer systems to help them set the perfect odds on a live game. If they happen to set a line incorrectly, they stand to lose a lot of money if bettors can jump on it before they adjust it. Props and alternative game lines are popular.
In-play game odds are formed as well, which differ slightly from live betting. The NBA is one of the most fast-paced sports to bet live. It's similar in hockey in which there is plenty of non-stop action until a timeout or a commercial break. We can see a great number of live betting lines in the NBA, which can be anything as specific as game props like the next team to score, or a change in the course of the point spread.
The NBA has plenty of statistics that are kept track, and player stats are a big part of the game as well. A bet on a player scoring the next basket or getting a rebound can be seen. Really there are so many options that anything seems possible, in the words of Kevin Garnett.
MLB betting might be the best sport to wager on live arguably. It's because there are a lot of thing happening, but at a nice pace. This is where things can be wagered on such as the next pitch being a ball or a strike. Or another example might be the next hitter up getting a hit or an out, or even something as specific as how that batter will get out. But then other live bets in general can be adjusted moneylines.
This is also seen with in-play MLB betting odds, where wagers from different innings reflect different moneylines. In-play bets can be made in between the innings. College football live betting runs hand in hand with the NFL. But with college football, there are more games scattered over different regions, with few nationally televised games. Still, live betting sections like to formulate wagers for college football both in-play and live. In terms of in-play odds, there are adjusted game lines for the second half, as well as point spreads for quarters following the completion of the first quarter.
In terms of what live betting odds are available, this is dictated by the flow of the game. Whether you are betting in the regular season or during March Madness, college basketball betting covers plenty of live betting and in-play betting. With more than Division I teams, there are plenty of basketball games on the schedule. You won't have the option to be live on every one of them, but in-play odds are seen far more often.
Either option puts you in the action, with live bets last only a couple of minutes generally. You can take advantage of some of the half odds at the break during a game, when oddsmakers readjust the spread depending on how the first hall went. The NHL is the most fast-paced sport to bet live, because the action rarely stops throughout the course of the three periods. In-play betting can be great for NHL bettors, as they can get in on the action throughout different points in the games, mostly during the intermission of the periods.
As for live betting, odds on the next team to score are popular, but other lines can be seen as well. NHL live betting is certainly fun and kicks the tempo of the game up a notch for bettors.
