eSports is a niche market that has slowly gained in popularity among gamblers, though not all sportsbooks offer eSports betting markets. Sportsbook Review has a rating guide filter which allows bettors to browse all online sportsbooks offering eSports.
63 sports betting sites offer eSports wagering markets; this number is expected to grow in 2017, though perhaps not at the pace once projected by industry insiders. eSports betting opens a can of worms with respect to market manipulation among lower ranked leagues and suspicious betting patterns and match-fixing; think low-level tennis multiplied by 100. The fact remains that wherever there is market interest, betting sites will offer lines, challenges to the lines manager departments aside.
Sportsbook Review welcomes feedback from eSports bettors.
