Understanding general types of esports bets and betting odds

Just like with the conventional sports, esports betting is built on the similar concept with some specifics related to the type of a game. Each game offers several types of bets, while some types of these bets could be available only on the biggest top tournaments. You can read the detailed description of each bet for each game in our specific articles we have placed on Yesportsbet.com.

There is a specific term for types of bets you can find while reading different guides on esports betting sites: the betting markets. So, here are the main types betting markets for the modern real money esports betting industry

Money line esports betting

This is the most common type of a bet where you wager on an outcome of a Tournament, or, as they call it you bet on a Match Win market. This type of a bet is the easiest to understand even if you are a total zero in video gaming. All online esports betting sites in the USA offer Money line bets on all types of games, so Money line is the best option to start you esports betting journey with.

Handicap Lines or spread betting

This is a more complicated type of betting on esports for more experienced players. This bet is offered when the outcome of the match is too predictable as obviously one of the teams has a significant advantage and the spread between odds is too large: for example 1.05 to 6.05. By offering a Handicap Line, a bookmaker can equalize the initial chances for teams to increase the betting interest to the Tournament. Betting lines can be made on the favorite team and on the outsider team.

“First To”

This type of a bet is also offered by almost all sites for esports betting in USA. This bet is used for the games where the player or the team of players have to kill opponents or destroy certain objects, so the first team that has killed the given number of opponents or destroyed the certain object will make your bet a winning one in this particular nomination. On each after-tournament esports betting report, you will see the table with the one or several “First To” winning bets.

Totals

You can do your esports betting by placing a bet on a total number of points (the total score) collected by both teams together. Different games offer the different number of scores possible, so you’ll be offered a more specific description of the Total bets right before the Tournament you’ve chosen for placing a bet.

Additional types of esports bets

Prop Bets (Propositions bets)

These are the very specific bets that you place for a specific element of the game’s outcome, like how many kills the team will make in a half an hour, or how many pauses longer than 5 minutes will occur during the Tournament and so on.

Live betting on esports

This is the relatively new type of esports betting (or, as they call it “in-game” betting) where you can take your stages after the game has already begun. This type of betting has a huge advantage in terms of giving you a chance to adjust your bets depending on the current gaming team’s performance.

Esports betting odds

Understanding the betting odds is the basic element of betting on esports. Depending on the esports betting site you are going to wager, the betting odds could be offered in three forms: Decimal, Fractional, and American. In simple words, esports betting odds are simply the expected probability of a Tournament’s outcome expressed in a certain form. For instance, there are two teams that compete in a certain tournament, and the one team is more likely to win according to the expectations and betting predictions of fans. This general expectation will be expressed by esports betting sites (or a particular bookmaker you’ve chosen for your real money esports betting) in the percentage ratio (the UK format), or decimal or American format.

The odds show how much money the bookmaker will pay you if your wager will turn out to be a winning one. Let’s take a closer look and make some calculations:

  • Decimal betting odds (the simplest ones): The odds for the “Team X” against the “Team Y” are 1.70 against 2.60. Your stake is 200$. Now you have to multiply your stake 200$ x 1.70 (for Team X) = 340$. Then subtract your initial stake 340-200=140$ (your pure profit).
  • Fractional betting odds are somewhat more complicated for calculations comparing to decimal odds. These odds are expressed as 9/1 or 7/3. In this case, if you stake 1$ you’ll win 9 dollars plus you initial 1 dollar as well.
  • There are also the special types of odd called odds-on, and you can see them displayed as 3/7. In esports betting that means you have to stake 7 dollars if you want to win 3 dollars. Such types of odds are normally applied only to big international gaming Tournaments.

Tournaments and leagues for esports betting

If you are looking for the nearest major gaming event to place a good bet on esports, you should visit esports betting sites (one of those we have listed at the beginning of the guide) where you’ll find the full schedule of the upcoming international and local events on each game you are interested in.

  • CS: GO Pro League is organized by the Electronic Sports League and E-Sports Entertainment Association and it gathers millions of fans on Tournaments (Valve’s Major tournament system).

Smart advice, rules, and tips for successful esports betting

The right sportsbook (bookmaker) is everything.

Make sure your esports betting site does have a license and offer the full range of games to bet on. Also, it’d be great if your sportsbook offers bonuses and a wide range of payment methods.

Beware of the long odds.

Even if those odds look crazily tempting, don’t fall into a temptation to make a bet on it. Especially with big money. Start small and act upon your research rather than your emotions.

Avoid the “double or nothing” strategy.

This is a pretty common strategy that usually leads to a total money loss. When your team has lost and you’ve lost your bet as well, don’t try to compensate the bitterness of the loss by wagering a double stake on the same team or game. Have a brief break (to let your emotions fade). Make a small bet on a completely different game and team.

Choose the game you really love.

It’s important that you really love to watch the game you are going to wager on. The more you are interested in it naturally the more you are involved into learning everything about it and as a result, you do better research, make better esports betting predictions, and get the better esports betting outcome!

Always stay with a cold head.

Bettors who burn themselves out in a non-stop betting rush is a big thing. So force yourself to make breaks between betting on big Tournaments. Your cold head and a clear mind are the keys to successful and long-term esports betting.
