To gamble or bet successfully on eSports and Overwatch specifically you need to put a lot of effort into researching the game. That means studying the gameplay, characters, meta and especially the different teams and players.
You can accumulate a lot of free overwatch knowledge by watching VODs or streams of Overwatch League, aka OWL is a good start. The Overwatch World Cup 2017 is also a good tournament to watch. In addition to that, it's always good to read a lot and acquire overwatch betting tips if you can find any of value.
When doing this it’s important to put emphasis on the different teams’ strategies, strengths and weaknesses. With that, we at eSportsbetting mean the players' best core characters and also the teams' overall performance on the specific maps.
It’s also very important to take the match format into consideration when placing bets. Okay, so we get that team one is a bit better than its opponent. Maybe we estimate their winning chance of 65% in a best of one. But if the match format is a best of three and we have no reason to re-estimate their winning chance based on the maps, they know have around 72% to win the match. Know we have to look at the odds, do the odds prices reflect a true image of our estimation or can we expect to make a profit? If yes, trust your analysis, if not, wait for better odds or another game.
When you’ve built up enough knowledge to make informed decisions it’s important to pick the right bookmaker for you. You can see reviews, bonuses and more in our compiled list of eSports betting sites
After picking one or several eSport betting sites where you place your bets with it’s important to track your bet results (real or your “ghost bets” if you want to practice). This is best done in our betting tracker but can also be done in good excel spreadsheets. Either you build your own or find a good one to use.
Good luck betting!
