Tips For Betting on eSports

Betting and eSports are coming closer than ever before and because of the COVID-19 pandemic and the lack of actual sport, there has been a huge increase in interest during 2020.

That means that many more people are tuning into the action and putting their money where their mouth is by placing a bet on the outcome of the game or tournament.

For many eSports fans, betting on the sport is something completely new, which is why we are guiding you through our top tips for betting on eSports.

Play The Game

Much like many other sports you can bet on, it helps if you have a good understanding, and the same applies for the eSports games that you want to bet on. It’s much harder to try and play a game of football at Old Trafford or Wembley, but with eSports, you can go out and buy the game to play yourself.

From Counter Strike to League of Legends, getting your head around the rules and ways to win is a real key aspect to grasp before placing a bet. Even eSports players talk up the importance of continuously playing the game to give you that extra edge, so knowing as much as you can is just as important before betting on a particular eSports game.

Once you’ve figured out how to play the game, it’s important to keep on top of any changes or updates, which tend to come pretty frequently these days. They often bring about new strategies and techniques so checking out our latest news or being active on Twitch should be an important part of your betting armoury.

Plan Your Betting Budget

In order to gamble safely, you need to do it responsibly and that starts by setting yourself a budget.

Depending on what you earn, you should set aside an affordable amount that you are happy to lose and won’t affect you paying any of your other bills or outgoings.

The key is keeping it fun, and as soon as it stops being fun or you find yourself getting frustrated, then that is the time to stop.

Staking Plan

After deciding on how much you have in your betting budget, you then need to decide on how you’ll go about stacking that money on eSports.

Many gamblers will have different staking plans, with some sticking to a fixed stake amount per bet and others varying it depending on how confident they are on a particular outcome actually happening.

Some will do this via a points system with each point equalling to a certain number of pounds or dollars.

For example, a 1 point bet would be a less confident bet than a 3 point bet. Many gamblers will have 1 point set at £10, so that would mean a £10 stake with a 3 point bet being a £30 stake.

However, you should always set your own points strategy if you do want to use that method and the points can just as easily work to £1 or £5, as they do to £10.

Whatever you decide, always gamble responsibly.

Choose Your eSports Bookmaker

There are many betting sites that are now offering eSports odds, so it’s always worth doing a bookmakers comparison before opening a new account and gambling online.

Many bookmakers will give out welcome packages and offers for new customers, which means you can often pick up anything from bonus credit to free bets when you sign up, deposit and place a bet on eSports for the first time.

As well as checking out the welcome offers, it’s also worth researching what eSports games your chosen bookmaker actually offers betting markets on.

Some will have a detailed list, while others will only focus on the major tournaments, so depending on what you are planning to bet on, always check your bookie has what you are looking for.
