Esports betting might be a completely new thing for many bettors, but there is no hiding the fact that esports has become a big hit in the betting world. This also explains why you can find esports odds on all online bookmakers, granted the offer will vary from bookie to bookie.
Some will offer esports betting lines only on the most popular esports in League of Legends, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and Dota 2, but others will offer significantly better coverage, with Rocket League, Valorant, Hearthstone, StarCraft, and many more.
How to read Esports Odds
Esports betting odds don’t differ much from the odds you will find when betting on sport. Even though esports and sports are generally much different, the same principles and rules that apply to sports betting carry over to esports betting.
You will find moneyline bets, handicaps, point spreads, and totals, so technically, the only esports bet types that will vastly differ from sports will be proposition bets.
How to bet on Esports
If you understand the basics of betting (on sports), you’re set to start betting on esports. First, however, you should a least understand what you’re betting on. Esports are generally different from sports, so if you understand how soccer is played, you aren’t necessarily ready to bet on esports – except if you bet on FIFA (soccer esports game).
So before you start betting on esports, pick the game you like, and learn a thing or two about it. It takes some time to do so, but it’s worth it in the end.
