Esports Betting

Esports betting is becoming increasingly popular as the sport itself grows. With sites like DraftKings offer eports related contests, it seems only inevitable the wide-spread betting on esports will follow. Hence, this is a large growth area, with seemingly limitless contents and betting options. Integrity is a factor, as esports gamers typically don’t earn as much as major professional athletes. They are thus susceptible to being bought, so to speak. As sites begin to offering esports action, we will review those verticals specifically and provide you with detailed reviews of the offerings.
