Esports betting tips
As with any sport, betting on esports can be a bit overwhelming, but if done right, can triple the thrill of even the most boring of matches. If you’re not entirely sure of the best way to learn more about esports betting, the Betway Insider Blog is the perfect place to start. You’ll get in-depth articles and amazing insight into the world of esports from our trusted experts.
It also helps to understand which major tournaments are the most popular and which teams are most likely to come out on top. Five of the biggest tournaments on the annual esports calendar are:
- The International Dota 2 Championships
- Capcom Pro Tour
- Intel Extreme Masters
- League of Legends World Championships
- Call of Duty Championship
Some of the teams to keep an eye on include:
- Nijas in Pyjamas
- Made in Brazil
- Invictus Gaming
- PSG LGD
- DreamHack Masters
For a solid understanding of which team in any particular match is the favourite to win, all you need to do is have a look at the odds. The lower a team’s odds, the more likely they are to win. If both teams have the same, or similar odds, then it’s time to strap in for an exciting contest – it might even be a good idea to wait for the match to start, wait to see how the teams are looking and then placing your bets live.
