Solid 0-4 start. Guess we're back to the drawing board for a while glad I didn't bet big on anything. I guess 3 of the 4 were dogs. Ouch.

Re: Esport Betting?

They added CoD on bet365. Definitely going to be having a go at that once the world league starts. I would've crushed if they had it at the end of last season I did some fantasy betting and brackets that were great. Also some of the starting odds they got look like free money lol

Re: Esport Betting?

After the patches go through you'll want to bet terran a lot, if we follow game logic. Right now there's basically a system of T<P<Z<T. They're planning to nerf early game P and nothing else. PvT has basically been the reverse of HotS TvP: back then terrans had to attack early-midgame or lose to late game toss army, and now protoss is basically at the same point given that they lose pretty hard to liberators. Now if terran is helped against adepts, assuming the nerf is enough (which I think it is), that should create a situation where T>=P, and T>Z.

Re: Esport Betting?

I bet on CSGO a bit and have some friends who bet on DOTA, it's definitely still beatable but it's too time consuming to handicap for me to bet on anything beyond the major tournaments really

There are tons of opportunities and consistent errors in the market. Limits are low but - too some extent - it can be made up for in pure volume. Depending on which bookmakers you have access too you can easily make 60+ bets a day w/ expected value of 5-20%. A 1-2 year ago I would have put that number even higher but bookmakers are generally getting more efficient.

But it is all about developing a method that allows you to scale. Spending time analyzing each bet on a case-by-case basis leads you nowhere. Personally I used and refined various techniques over the past year that allowed me to gain a solid profit. Atm. I mostly rely on huge databases that I have for both LOL and CS:GO that allows me to model those games (incl deriviaties) somewhat effectively.

I would also argue that other esports besides CSGO and LOL are a waste of time though. There aren't enough different types of bets you can make on those matches.

Re: Esport Betting?

What books do people recommend for this. Specifically I'm in early stages investigating LoL and DotA. Pinny seems to have lots of lines, totals, spreads, props, futures and whatnot. Nitrogen is tailing Pinny's lines. I see an occasional esports line from 5dimes, heritage, and BM but nothing like Pinny. I'd be interested in both other books tailing Pinny's lines precisely (like Nitrogen) as well as books working independently.

Re: Esport Betting?

Did anybody have action on any of the game handicap bets for the Dota Summit yesterday before the wagers got taken down? I'm trying to figure out if I got freerolled.

These would be wagers like Kinguin +1.5 (in either series), Complexity -1.5, Virtus Pro -1.5, Sacred +1.5 or Evil Geniuses -1.5. I'm trying to figure out how these were graded since the serieses were not true best of 3s as all 3 games were played regardless of the outcome of the first two.
