One thing you should know about League of Legends is that there generally aren’t a whole lot of upsets. The better team wins more often than not, but if you like an underdog, bet in small increments. There are currently some World Championship matches going down, which you can find it at LOLesports.com.

DotA 2

Did you know that Dota2 has some insanely immense prize offerings? Seriously, they make even an ‘old guy’ like me want to get back into hardcore video gaming. Ironically, the betting industry for DotA2 can be a bit sketchy because of language barriers, but for their biggest tournaments, you’ll undoubtedly be able to place some wagers. You should probably check out the DreamLeague, The Final Match, the Majors and the Invitational. which, are divided by regions. Right now, there is a Premiere tier event going down at ESL One Hamburg from October 28-29.

FGC (Fighting Game Community)

Super Smash Brothers Melee

If you didn’t know, Smash Bros. Melee is one of the biggest and best e-sports events at EVO every year. Not only can you find online e-Sports Smash tournaments to wager on, but you best believe, there’s one going down in the town you live in… probably right now!

Super Smash Brothers 4

Smash 4 is a different version of the original Smash Bros. And you can find this game at EVO, along with Super Smash Con and Genesis among other FGC games. The betting community for Smash 4 isn’t as big as some of the other FGC games as this title features fewer E-Sports betting fanatics than some of the other popular titles. However, the outcomes of this game are reportedly predictable, so if you do find a betting venue, look at the consistent top 8 finishers and go for it.

Street Fighter V

If you know anything about FGC games, then you probably know a lot about Street Fighter. Not only is it a timeless classic, but it doubles as one of the most bet on FGC games ever! Street Fighter V highlight one of the most important E-Sports Betting Tournaments. For FGC lovers, the S4 2GG Championship is taking place in Santa Ana, California from Dec. 1-3.

Counter Strike: Global Offensive

Counter Strike: Global Offensive has a huge betting community. From October 20-22, the DreamHack Denver tourney will be taking place while DreamHack Winter goes down live from Sweden from Nov. 30-Dec. 2. If you’re new to eSports CSGO betting, it’s allegedly best to start with the big tournaments before wagering on the smaller ones.

StarCraft 2

They say that StarCraft 2 is the unofficial national sport of South Korea. Seriously though, the one-on-one tournaments are fun-filled, even if the betting doesn’t reach quite the same levels as some of the other E-Sports games.

Overwatch

Overwatch is now widely popular, and although my 14-year-old son isn’t very fond of the game, it’s growing in popularity, even if the eSports gaming scene for Overwatch is still playing catch-up. If you’re new to this game, you should check out the Overwatch Open, the OGN series, and the yearly Blizzcon.

Heroes of the Storm

Heroes of the Storm is so popular that is has been featured on ESPN, where the winners would get free tuition. The field for HOTS isn’t generally as big as some of the other E-Sports games, but all this does is making betting on it, that much more of a lock. Pick the region you’re most comfortable betting on and go for it!

Call of Duty

The Call of Duty World League (CWL) is a widely-popular and massive tournament that is great for betting. COD is an incredibly fast-paced FPS (First Person Shooter) even for fans. The bottom line for E-Sports betting is that if you’re new to the genre, you should probably watch some tournaments before dipping your toe into the waters.
