How to Live Bet on La Liga

There’s no doubt any La Liga match can be exciting but when you throw live betting in the mix, the fun goes up a level!

Even when those drab soccer games happen - because listen, sometimes they do - betting live can bring the excitement.

You know La Liga bettingif not, level up — but what about how to bet live?

It really is as simple as it sounds. When watching the game you can wager on the moneyline win, the spread and even what happens next.

Want to understand and bet live on La Liga? Glad you asked, has you covered. Here's our guide on how to live bet on Spanish football.

Placing your bet

Often you will be able to locate a live game through one of two ways; via a Bet Live section on your online sportsbook and/or betting app, or by clicking through to the La Liga category on the book’s site/app and locating the match from there. 

Remember, all live bets are time sensitive — if you’re not as quick as Lionel Messi, you may miss out!

Our La Liga Bet Hub has the best live odds and probabilities in the United States. When signing up to a sportsbook, use our exclusive promotional codes to access free and risk-free bets.

What live bets are available?

Live betting exposes you to many options usually unavailable to the average bettor. The usual wagering options are available during a soccer game, but there are added offerings once teams kickoff:

The amount of live La Liga bets is quite frankly absurd, but that's great news for you! There’s always opportunities to find a bet which suits you and capitalize on juicy live odds offered by the sportsbook.

These are the types of bets available to you during a live La Liga match: 

  • Next player to score 
  • Next team to score
  • Next team/player to receive a yellow card 
  • Both teams to score 
  • Next set piece (throw in/free kick/penalty/corner/goal kick)
  • Correct score 
  • Half Time/ Full Time — You must pick the correct score for half-time, whilst also betting the correct final result. Both scores obviously don’t have to be the same, but sometimes a game will have the identical score at half and full time. 
  • Draw No Bet — The tie option is removed here. You’re betting the home or away team to win. If your team wins, you obviously win too. If the match is a draw, your stake is refunded.
  • Double Chance — As it sounds, double chance betting involves predicting two of the three possible outcomes in a soccer match. In any game you will have three double chance options:
  • Team 1 win + draw (e.g. FC Barcelona and draw)
  • Team 2 win + draw (e.g. Real Madrid FC and draw)
  • Team 1 or Team 2 win (e.g. Barcelona or Real Madrid win)
  • To win to Nil — Your team must win whilst keeping a clean sheet (allowing zero goals).
  • Number of Teams to Score — Here you have three options: 
  1. One team to score 
  2. Two teams to score 
  3. No teams to score

With more options available to bettors, there is greater opportunity for you to find real value. Deep thought isn’t as readily applied to live odds, so if you can be quick, you could be lucky!

Friendly reminder: Ever La Liga match on Dimers has live probabilities, to help you place the best bet possible. What’s more we provide you with odds from the most trusted sportsbooks in your state.

Shifting odds

La Liga odds can change within a game, particularly when a team gets hot or if the star striker is substituted. Odds change based on the scoreline, momentum, and injuries, amongst other things. 

This can be hard to keep up with and that’s why we recommend you monitor Dimers’ live in-play probabilities during the game, and before you place any bet. 

Our live technology — updating every 30 seconds — gives you real-time probabilities for betting the spread, total (over/under) and moneyline. 

The live matchup and probabilities of any La Liga game can be accessed through the scoreboards at the top of the Dimers website, the Live Now section and even the La Liga section in Bet Hub.


As mentioned, there are many factors which influence a quick change in odds during a La Liga fixture. It is nice to consider some of these variables before placing your bets. 


  • Injuries (Key players coming out can affect moneyline/spread particularly)
  • Momentum
  • Key player form 
  • Home/Away factor
  • Rest (Is a team playing after limited rest?)
  • Rivalries (Barcelona FC vs. Real Madrid FC / Atletico Madrid vs. Real Madrid)

These aspects should be kept in mind when live betting on La Liga, and if used alongside our live probability calculator, you’re a chance to gain a leg up on your sportsbook.

La Liga live betting represents one of the best ways to capitalize on great odds sportsbooks may have slept on. Give it a try whilst using Dimers’ in-play probabilities and best odds — via our La Liga Bet Hub — to give you the best opportunity at winning your soccer picks!
