Dota2 Betting Markets
Placing a Dota 2 bet means that you are trying your chance on an outcome, but which outcome? We offer dozens of options to our members. You can bet on almost any outcome that can happen during Dota 2 games or tournaments.
- Moneyline Bet: This is the most basic bet, where you are betting on which team will win the match or the tournament.
- Totals: This one is also known as over/under betting. It simply means you are betting on whether the total points at the end of the event will be over or under a specific figure.
- Spread Betting: You may know this one as handicap betting too. In order to win the bet, the final result must match the handicap points given by the bookmakers. For example, if this point is -1, that team must win by at least 2 points difference. (Just winning the match is not enough.)
- Prop Bets: This category contains lots of different outcomes and offers amazing variety. Proposition betting is always about exotic options such as who will win a specific map, which player will score the most points, or who will destroy the most towers. There are lots of possibilities here. You can even place a bet on which hero will be the first one to die.
