Beloved Team or Favorite Player Bets
It is a frequently met delusion among both beginners and experienced betters: to bet on a team of players they know personally, make friends with, or earned money previously. And if a betting coefficient is for them, it seems to be a guaranteed profit. But betting on your favorites because you’re sure they win is completely different from betting on them because they’re your friends or you just like their logo. As in many other cases, emotions will rather be harmful than helpful when it comes to betting on any esports event.
Betting Without Necessary Experience
You won’t want to become a passenger of an inexperienced driver or to trust your life to a first-year medic student, would you? So why do you thing betting on a game you never heard about before to be a good idea? Do you know nothing about “Counter Strike”, heard something about “DotA 2”, finished the singleplayer campaign in “StarCraft” and want to bet on something? You better bet on the last title: at least, you know something about how that game works.
Empty Talks about Betting
As only you start reading senseless forum comments on betting from numerous “Internet experts” and “home specialists”, you lose control upon your behavior. People who know where they can hitch a jackpot just make bets silently. All the rest means empty words not worth listening to them. The “absolutely trustable” information about match fixing goes the same way. Players who actually want to fix some games will keep silent about that.
Maximum Information before Betting
Before you decide to bet your money on this or that game, don’t be too lazy to learn basis. What factors to review when betting on “DotA 2”? How old are members of this or that team? Does the player exercise? How does he look? Another helpful information source will appear if you learn statistics analysis of wins and losses for players or teams, maps of matches. What is even better for you is to have a small personal experience as a pro player. The more information you have, the more accurate your bet will be.
Have a Rest Between Betting
That’s an obvious tip you shouldn’t underestimate. At the certain stage, after a chain of wins or losses, human brain starts losing its criticism. It will seem that you’ll win after a lose streak or you’ll feel yourself undefeatable. At the moment when such thoughts start appearing in your head, when you start speaking of yourself as of the “lucky guy” and thinking of signs and superstitions, it’s time to stop. Esports betting means heavy intellectual efforts requiring clear mind. Don’t worry, your game is about to come, and there is no “Miss Fortune” at all.
There is a stable and popular delusion about the only reliable strategy to win on esports betting is to make many bets on one or many games. Nevertheless, booking business professionals say it is better to deal with no more than four bets at a time. A bug number of bets quickly kill critical perception ability in your brain. As a result, a too excited person has no wins and no money.
What’s That Booking Company?
Choose the booking company to make bets with carefully. Esports gain popularity quickly, but frauds come along with them. The cleverest of them usually publish some kind of statistics difficult to understand and using special definitions, blind betters with high coefficients and tempting bonuses. Try to find the license of the chosen company: it should be placed directly on the website. Additionally, pay attention if more or less known payment systems cooperate with your bookers obligatory.
Don’t Bet All You Have
Seriously, there are life situations when the game just refuses to “go”. You could fail to count something, make wrong conclusions… Players are not perfect, too: someone’s hand got hurt; someone started playing the game after a breakup with a girlfriend without mood, etc. If you feel yourself trapped in an unlucky chain or not having “your day”, maybe it is time to make a break in betting. All in all, your good mood is an important factor here, too.
