What You Need to Know Before Betting eSports

If you love playing intense video games then you know that League of Legends is one of the most popular and exciting games out there. What you may not know is that they are also very popular in the world of esports. In this piece, I will be giving you some tips to help you get started on LoL bettings sites.

Let’s dive in.

First, in case you don’t know, esports is similar to traditional sports betting in that you bet on your favorite game, team, or individual players. Unlike regular sports betting, however, esports also allows you to bet on some unique events that are specific to video games. For example, you can bet on first kills or first ones to lose. First ones to find specific treasures or to lose. You can even bets on levels and which avatar will move on to the next level.

Here are the top betting types you will most likely see:

Money Lines

This type of bet is a simple bet on who will win. Depicted as odds, this is the most popular thing to bet on and you will see it all over the place.

Handicap Betting

Contrary to the way it sounds, handicap betting is when you not only choose the top favorite to win but to spice it up you bet that they can win more games than one. The odds are then written as a negative number, so instead of 3-0, it would be written as -2.5, meaning you think your team can win 2.5 games.

In handicap bets, you can also bet on different end games. (Also known as over and under)

● Maps played
● Kills
● Points
● Rounds

Prop Bets

As mentioned above, esport lets you bet on random things as well like kills per player, which teams get first blood, how long the match will last, and even how long the pauses will be.

Now that you know how to bet, let’s learn about betting sites and some things to watch out for.

Watch Out for Scams

Unfortunately, anytime money is involved it seems to attract the not-so-honest types. eSports is no exception. There are many sites and marketers who will try to convince you to deposit. Here are some of the most popular cons:

1) Deposit Bonus is Outrageous – no one will give you money for nothing. Period. Sites that claim they will often have fine print that mentions you only get your bonus after you spend X amount or like gambling sites will have restrictions on types of games you can win and play.

2) Influencers and Social Media stars will try to sell you picks. They are not called influencers for no reason but these people should stick to makeup recommendations and not something as difficult as betting and odds. Never buy picks – always remember this rule if someone knew the winning lottery numbers they wouldn’t sell them they would use them and win. Same goes for picks.

Picking a Real Winner

When it comes to choosing honest LoL betting sites always look for a reliable site like Rivalry, that offers a gambling license. This means that you have protection against any fraud and assurance that you will be able to withdraw and all odds are paid fairly.
