Live sports betting is an entertaining form of online sports betting available for every SEC football game. You can also bet on futures like SEC Championship odds each year.

What’s College Football Live Sports Betting?

Here’s an example using a Tennessee-Georgia game:

Georgia is a 11.5-point road favorite against Tennessee. After the Bulldogs ook a 7-0 lead with a touchdown on their opening possession, the Vols matched it with touchdown on their first offensive possession.

Despite the Vols’ answer, you’re not convinced they can hang with Georgia to cover the live spread (+10.5). With live sports betting at BetMGM, you can bet on it.

Pregame betting closes at the opening kickoff and odds open for live sports betting. Then, the odds are updated throughout the next three or four hours as the sportsbook reacts to action on the field. 

How To Live Bet on SEC Odds

Live betting is available for all SEC football games each season.

Whether you’re hedging against a futures bet like national championship odds or SEC Championship odds, increasing an investment on a pregame bet, or taking an entirely new position, in-game wagering allows you to find betting opportunities while you’re streaming a game online, checking scores from your phone, or watching from your seats at Neyland Stadium in Knoxville. 

In this (fictional) scenario for the Georgia-Tennessee game, perhaps you didn’t place a pregame wager on the spread, which closed at Georgia -11.5, but liked the value of Georgia at -10.5 after watching the first two possessions.

To place a live bet on this game and other SEC odds, visit the live betting page or college football betting page at the online sportsbook.

Live Betting Parlays

While you’re viewing updated Georgia-Tennessee odds, depending on kickoff times, you may also see updated odds for Ole Miss-Auburn, LSU-Florida, or Mississippi State-Kentucky. And if you spot favorable live numbers for multiple games, you can combine them into a parlay.

Parlays aren’t limited to pregame betting. You can select multiple wagers from multiple games – in one sport or across multiple sports – and build a parlay.

For example, instead of, or in addition to, placing a single $50 wager on Georgia to cover -10.5, you could build the following $50 parlay with a combination of live and pregame SEC odds:

  • Live: Georgia -10.5 (-110)
  • Live: Ole Miss -7.5 (-110)
  • Pregame: LSU/Florida under 56.5 (-110)

If all three legs hit, you’d win $347.87 on the same $50 stake, an ROI of nearly 700%.
