What is Esports?

Esports, which also is commonly referred to as electronic sports, e-sports or eSports, is a video-game-based competition that can take on many different forms, including sports, combat, fantasy, etc.

Video games can be played on a number of different consoles, including PC, Xbox, Nintendo Switch and PlayStation, which makes them accessible by the majority. The phenomenon of electronic gaming first took on in China and South Korea, but since its fledgling days in Asia it has taken over the world by a storm to become one of the biggest things since sliced bread. Thanks largely to YouTube and Twitch giving gamers direct access to each other no matter where in the world they reside – literally, two players can be on opposite sides of the world. You can be in Paris, France, playing against someone in San Francisco, California.

This popularity has opened the door for esports experts to share their insight and expertise within the sports analysis community. At SBR, our team of experts in the world of gaming are second to none, handpicked for their unparalleled knowledge of the gaming industry and their proven track record of success.

What is Esports Betting?

As esports continues to grow in popularity – industry insiders project electronic sports to turn in revenues of nearly $2 billion in 2022 — betting on esports grows in proportion. Indeed, esports betting predictions are in high demand as everyone is looking to get a piece of the action.

Esports betting is not unlike sports betting. However, bearing in mind it’s still a novelty item at the sports exchange, only a few markets are available. The hope is that with time those markets will evolve, allowing more angles for profit to be included with esports picks.

As it is, moneyline picks are the most prevalent within esports betting. So, for example, highly sought-after CS:GO picks will more often than not have a prediction for which player/team will win. Other forms of betting that are available for esports betting include the handicap and prop bets. The handicap works just like it does in actual sports. Special bets involve predicting the winning player (or hero) of the game or map, the correct score (where applicable) and so on.

Where Can I Find the Best Esports Picks?

Esports is not just a fad. It’s one of the fastest growing industries that’s here to stay. Today, the world of electronic sports features professional players and teams from around the world backed by massive endorsements, promotions and advertising, and the stadiums are filled to the rafters with fans who can’t get enough of the action.

Even the gamers are becoming household names, players like FaZe, SK Gaming, Mousesports and Cloud9 just to name a few. And the prizes are eyewatering huge: in 2018, The International Dota 2 tournament commanded q $34.3 million dollar prize pool! It’s not for the fainthearted, that’s for sure.

It follows that as with any professional sporting event, where bettors turn to the experts for predictions and picks, the same applies for esports events. Who better to dish out Dota 2 picks, for example, than a bona fide expert that knows it inside out?

At SBR, our experts know their business and serve up a slew of esports betting tips and predictions backed by analysis, data and trends. Bettors can choose to take on board what our experts have to offer and capitalize on their betting tips or simply absorb the research and make their own wagering decisions.

CS:GO (Counter Strike: Global Offensive)

CS:GO is a hugely popular and well-reviewed multiplayer, first-person shooter video game that pits two teams against each other: the Terrorists and the Counter-Terrorists. The mission before each team is to eliminate the other team while also completing other objectives.

Dota 2

Dota 2 is immensely popular with video gamers. The multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) video game is a sequel to Defense of the Ancients. At its core, the video game features two teams of five players, with each team occupying and defending their own basecamp on a map. Each player assumes a “hero” character of choice, with distinct combat abilities and styles. During a match, players collect experience points and items for their heroes in order to defeat the opposing team’s heroes in player versus player combat. A team wins through the destruction of the other team’s Ancient, a large structure within their base.

League of Legends (LoL)

LoL is a multiplayer online battle arena video game that was inspired by Defense of the Ancients. Players take on the role of a champion with unique abilities and engage in battle with a team of other players. The objective is to destroy the Nexus, a structure that is found at the heart of each opposing team’s camp.
