E-Sports Betting - The New Era of Sports Betting Online

For those of us that grew up playing games on Atari, Nintendo, Xbox and computers, we can appreciate the skill that is required to best a game and especially when fitted against other players. This has in the later years increased drastically, from the small community of Starcraft Broodwar in South Korea that grew larger and larger, and soon got bigger in the west, until today where there are being competed in several games throughout the world like League of Legends, Starcraft 2, Dota 2 and more. The betting companies are aware of this and are starting to offer betting on these events, which again is fun for our age group.

So how does betting on e-sports actually work? Well, just like any other sports wagering, where you wager on two teams fitted against each other, or a head to head bout. You are given a set of odds on the competitors and you decide which one you like the bet and place a bet on that team or individual. Simple enough.

But what events are there being offered bets on? The most popular of e-sports gaming today is League of Legends, Starcraft 2 and Dota 2. These are the ones you will find the most bets available for, and there often are daily events that its possible to bet on, so for those that like to gamble and watch e-sports, the possibilities are many with the surge of betting opportunities.

As for how you actually win money betting, you need to consider a lot of factors, the more, the bigger chance you have of showing profit. Latest form of the team or individual will be the most telling factor. If a player has been doing great lately, he is most likely to be able to continue play well, as he most likely has gotten a great breaktrough, learned some new strategy or have a meta-game that is superior as of now. Recent form is more important in e-sports, which is more evolving and fluid than other sports that are more "figured out".

However, you need to check for how they fare against this specific opponent, or race or other things that are specific for this matchup. Having accounted for these factors, you then should come up with a win probability that you can use to check the odds given, and bet accordingly. Following a lot of matches should give you an edge, so I recommend betting on games that you see the most matches and between players and teams that you have the best knowledge about.
