What are eSports?
eSports is gaming at a competitive level. These games can be played on a computer or console, as well as on mobile devices. Gaming at a competitive level means players are competing for money, scholarships, or rankings within a tournament structure.
eSports pro players usually have very strict training schedules. Depending on their commitment and level of play, they could train monthly, weekly, or even daily. One of the great things about eSports is that it allows men and women to play across gender boundaries and also territorial. Some of the main eSports titles are League of Legends, Counter-Strike:Global Offensive, Dota 2, Call of Duty, and Valorant.
Major eSports titles have built a big enough presence to have their own leagues with teams located in multiple countries. Another great feature of eSports is that just like regular sports, people can enjoy it both by watching the match at home, or by visiting the tournament personally.

Types of Bets on eSports Events
Just like any other sport, eSports also involves different types of bets that are necessary to learn to place better bets. They are:
- Match Winner. This is the most common type of bet, even in eSports. The concept is simple: you just need to predict which player or which team will win.
- Outright Betting. The point of outright betting is that you need to predict not who will win a single match, but who will win the entire eSports tournament or a league. This type of bet is for experienced veterans of eSports betting.
- Over/Under Bets. This type of bet is pretty self-explanatory. Here, you need to predict if the amount of a certain event will be over or under.
- Correct Score. This type of bet requires you to predict the correct number of points of a specific player or a team. For example, in Dota games, at the end of the match, there is a specific number of kills each team made. Your task is to predict this number.
The Line on eSports
eSports, as well as regular sports, also includes line betting. All of the matches on eSports provided by Sportsbet allow you to place line bets.
The concept of line betting on eSports is relatively simple: the bookmaker handicaps a match. Think of it like applying a head start, or handicap, to the team you are choosing to bet on. A line bet involves one team having 6 points better than the opposing team, for example, while the other team has 6 points worse than the opposing team.
Thus, if you are placing a bet on the second team, at the end of the match, this team would have to have at least 7 points for you to receive your winnings.

Chances of Winning eSports Teams 2022
The chances of winning are strictly personal, as each team has its strengths and weaknesses. One team may have a greater reaction, but lower skill, whereas the other team will have the opposite. However, in some matches, it’s almost completely clear from the beginning who will win.
Sportsbet presents different odds for every match, and to understand which one has more chance to win, simply check the odds.
Usually, the team that has bigger odds has lower chances of winning, whereas the team that has lower odds has more chances to win. However, each match is special, as the outcome of the match may change literally at the last second, so to have greater chances of winning, we highly recommend learning about the teams before placing bets.
