The fun thing about esports is that there’s so much going on!

Here’s some of our favourite ways to bet:

Map winner

Know a team that always starts or finishes strong? You can bet on which team will win each individual map.

First blood / first kill Bloodthirsty!

Bet on who’s going to draw first blood or make that first kill of the game.

First baron or dragon

Every esport is different, so look for your favourite actions and match-turning points! For LoL, that might be killing the first dragon. In CS:GO, you might want to bet on the first pistol round winner. If you’re watching Dota 2, you might want to bet on the team to kill Roshan first.

You can also bet more traditionally:

  • Total rounds or points – over or under
  • Round or game handicaps – give your underdog an advantage, or the favourite a disadvantage
  • Outrights – which team or player will win a tournament
  • Moneyline – who will win a match
