ESports Betting Tipster is a brand new sports betting tipster service which deals with the emerging eSports market. It is a unique product which is currently being offered through the Betting Gods stable of tipsters.
What does the product offer?
League of Legends, Overwatch, Dota 2 and CS:GO. These are the examples cited in the sales material and they probably don’t mean a whole lot to a lot of people reading this. They are in fact computer games. I have always had an interest in this going all the way back to an old Amstrad with a cassette deck to load games (and of course copying them from friends with a twin deck hi-fi). Back then I don’t think anybody could have predicted the rise of eSports, but here in the present it is arguably the fastest growing sports market in the world.
It is also a sporting discipline that I wouldn’t have associated with a tipster service before now, and yet, here we are. In terms of what you are getting with eSports Betting Tipster, the nature of eSports do mean that it is a little different to the norm. The betting process itself is fundamentally the same although you will find that you have a restricted quantity of bookmakers to take advantage of. The betting markets that you use are not difficult however and once you have a bookie tied down, it should not be a problem following along.
The nature of the eSports calendar means that you are unlikely to see bet from eSports Betting Tipster every day either. In fact, with an average of 25-30 tips per month and proofing often showing a few days between selections historically.
This naturally means that some days you will bet more times than others. In the case of eSports Betting Tipster, you will rarely see more than 5 bets per day. On its own, this appears to be a decent balance between staking a lot and still generating decent profits however this is only one aspect.
This rather nicely allows me to move on to the question of how much you will stake on a given game. Whilst the majority of selections are advised at 1 point per bet, eSports Betting Tipster does go as high as 8 and even 10 points per game. On busier days, this can start to add up depending on how much you are staking per point. Ultimately however, there is a decent amount of variety and you will not typically be expected to stake toward the top end.
Sticking with the numbers side of things, the only real remaining thing to look at is the strike rate. I don’t really believe that there is any other metric against which one can compare eSports Betting Tipster. The strike rate stands at 35.06% which I feel is reasonable. On average, 1 bet in 3 will win and with odds that are typically around the 3.0 mark, so there is definitely potential for profit to be had here.
How does ESports Betting Tipster work?
ESports Betting Tipster is a product from the Betting Gods group who historically do not give a lot of information away about how their tipsters make selections. I do however know that there is a vigorous proofing process in place. eSports is a new betting avenue for a lot of people, especially here in the UK.
What I do know however is that there is a lot of interest in events across Asia which means that there will be existing betting markets from which to draw data. Combine this with the fact that eSports are team based events and I can believe that analysing things like form and known strategies is a viable option to get an edge over the bookies.
What is the initial investment?
One area that Betting Gods consistently get right is the pricing of their services and eSports Betting Tipster isn’t really any different. It is a niche service so I wouldn’t expect to pay too much and at £20 per month ,I think that it is fairly priced.
There is of course additional value to be extracted by signing up with Betting Gods on a quarterly basis at a cost of £50 or annually for £180. Whichever option you choose, you will receive a 10 day trial to eSports Betting Tipster for just £1. There is also a full 30 day money back guarantee in place should you find that it isn’t for you.
What is the rate of return for ESports Betting Tipster?
Since November 2017 when proofing for eSports Betting Tipster began the service has made a profit of 172.68 points. This is a very strong figure and it is worth pointing out that this is on the back of a bit of a losing month in March. (April is back on track to make money). To better create some context for the performance of eSports Betting Tipster, Betting Gods are reporting an ROI of 37.14%, a very impressive number.
I have known about the growing popularity of eSPorts for some time. I have also been aware that betting markets exist for the events. With this in mind, the emergence of eSports Betting Tipster shouldn’t really come as a surprise and yet, here I am, expressing just that. I think that honestly, it is more of a surprise that somebody as big as Betting Gods is willing to take a punt on such a niche item. None the less, that is not necessarily a bad thing for a number of reasons.
First things first, eSports Betting Tipster has made a profit.
This is something that in and of itself a lot of tipsters fail to get right. If I am putting my cards on the table, I would even go as far as to describe the current profit as impressive. Admittedly, there has been a losing month and this reasonably raises questions. The numbers that I have seen however suggest that long term, eSports Betting Tipster may well be a sustainable option.
Of course with niche betting there are undoubtedly problems. Not all bookies are willing to accept bets. It also goes without saying that the markets on exchanges are much more aggressive and significantly less liquid. This means that if you are turning to betting exchanges, you will perhaps find it more difficult following eSports Betting Tipster than an equivalent horse racing tipster service.
Ultimately, I think that the unique approach that eSports Betting Tipster utilises is what makes it so worthwhile. I don’t think many people reading this will have considered eSports as a viable part of their betting portfolio and yet, the results show that it is ripe for the taking.
Don’t get me wrong, there are a lot of different sports that I would choose before making eSports Betting Tipster a part of a portfolio, but for those who already have variety, it is a new revenue stream which will have no overlap with your existing betting.
