What Are Esports Picks

You may be new to Esports in general, or new to Esports betting, and wondering what is an Esports Pick. Well, Esports is short for Electronic Sports, which is the term for competitive video gaming tournaments. Esports has sky rocketed in recent years and with fans able to watch all of the action live on streaming platforms such as Twitch, sportsbooks are also keen to get in on the action.

As a result, we are able to wager on the biggest Esports tournaments, from a range of games, and use our Esports expertise to provide the best free Esports picks around. We have experts on hand who specialise in particular games, teams and tournaments and this is key to us making the best Esports Picks around.

What Types of Esports Picks Are There

There are many different types of Esports betting picks available and these will differ from tournament to tournament, and game to game. 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. There are many ways you can bet on Esports and the Pickswise experts are here to bring you the best analysis, stats and picks on all of the top Esports action happening around the globe.

When Do you Post Your Esports Picks 

When we post our Esports picks will depend on how far ahead the sportsbooks price up the matches and tournaments. This can different from game to game and tournament to tournament, with the bigger events likely to be priced up well ahead of time. We ensure that our picks are posted with enough time for you to read, digest and analyze them, as well as being able to lock in the best odds. This will usually be at least the day before the match takes place, but with many games played each day during tournaments, we also want to make sure we’ve done our research on recent form of the players and teams participating. Check back to see our latest Esports picks today.
