What Types of Esports Picks Are There

With so many different games played competitively in Esports, they all have their own nuances, and thus betting markets. The majority of Esports betting picks will reflect the three main betting markets in sports betting in the Moneyline, Spread, and Totals. Depending on the game the spread or totals could be the number of matches, maps, rounds, points or goals and the moneyline will simply be whichever player or team wins the match. Aside from these main markets, you can also bet a select number of Esports prop bet picks, in CSGO for example, you can often bet on the correct score, number of maps won by each team or even map-specific bets such as Map 1 winning margins and first kill.
