hi, any regular betting user? i know a lot about cs, i watch almost every t1 match and i'm very very focus and close to the scene, and i'm ready to bet on the upcoming major, but i lack of betting understanding, for instance - Is it better to bet now or way until the last day of every match? - What is the best csgo betting site? - Is it worth it to bet on specific stuff (pistol rounds, more rounds than X etc) or just win/lose? - any other tip will be more than welcome I tried betting in the past but just with 10/20$, now I will bet around $70 and see how it goes, i'm not betting any extra money, just for fun and see where it goes, but i have good feelings about this since i understand, breathe and am CS

Depends on what you want to do. Do you want as much profit in the short run? There is no such thing as 'the best betting site'. Different sites offer different odds and these change all the time. I like to bet on maps and taking the -1.5 or -2.5 on maps I know are probably not going to 16-14.

there is a best betting site if you looking for specific details like which site has the lowest/highest amount of "vig" (the higher the vig, the less the site pay out of total winnings and keep a larger cut for themselves) just checked about 10 betting sites for esports, I will post numbers in part 2

Depending on how much you wager those percentages can help quite a bit. The numbers would look otherwise if you check football bets instead. I suggest you do own calculation if you are gonna make other bets. It's always good to join 2-3 other sites so you always get the best odds available.

it was just a fun side calculation I did based on games where the bookies thought it was a 50-50 game. For example Pinnacle could have 1.95 for Team A win and 1.95 for Team B win, but bet365 had 1.85 for Team A and 1.85 for Team B. Pretty low sample size so don't take it too seriously. Even the worst sites sometimes have the best odds for a particular game!
2021-10-22 03:10
1 reply
ahh okay, because I dont think bet365 is among the worst eROI normally, they arent the best either (pinnacle is rlly sick with that) but I think it might be because CSGO is a smaller market for them so ROI is always worse on smaller markets than big markets (like CSGO vs NFL)

as I said to another person, don't take it too seriously, it's a low sample size of about 30 esport matches per site I just calculated to get an idea of where I want to bet if you want reliability have to look at completely different things, and that I haven't done same if you only bet on football, then you really dont care about esport numbers. my main point was just that if you want a specific detail, there is a best site for that, also reliability. but overall there's no "best site" in that sense.

Honestly if you know a lot about teams right now, you will bet in a wrong way. Results will be way different on LAN and in front of crowd so, maybe don't even do it.

1. avoid bo1s. 2. avoid tier 3 tourneys. 3. no handi bets , over under, kills only match winners. 4. in a bo3 if your pick lost 1 map just dont add another bet to it. 5. bet after veto is out. 6. fixed amount bets, dont rage all in if you start losing. 7. learn to accept loss, dont blame. hf hope you earn good.

i lost like 200 euros bet variety of amounts from 10 eu to 80 eu, balance -200 , i bet on map winers and just winners, i started to bet pistols rounds only i won all back with like super high guess rate so in my mind ye it is worth to guess pistols
2021-10-21 19:07
first of all dont bet if you need the money for something else if you bet and want to make money bet on matches that are like 60%-40%, but if you startout it might make more sense to take safe bets and learn about it
2021-10-21 19:18
the best tip is, and the most hardest one. if you lose one bet, don't try to recoup. calm down, wait a little bit and try one more time if you want to. Then. My best tip is to check teams, not odds. Odds are stupid sometimes. Depends on team ready or not, whitch tournament its gonna play and after whitch. check instagram / twitter profiles of players. they post some shit sometimes so you can collect info and use it in bets. (for example if someone drunk or coach will play for a team) I wish you luck but for sure... you'd better don't even start betting

get to know vetos, sometimes betting on a team winning a map is worth it. over/under maps when u feel cofident too. avoid betting excact score unless you are going low value. trying to keep it short you shoud focus on : betting on a winning team, +1.5 handicap, over/under 2.5 maps. best of luck
2021-10-21 19:22
my betting tip is open 2 accounts lets say, one account is smaller to buy like food if you win 5 eu cashout or something, order skrill mastercard or something and other account is riskier dont fill it too high try to develop that account on its own by winning

about betting overall, i am clueless, that's why i made the post, i'm not into this a lot and i'm trying to collect as much information as possible to make right decisions. About CS, i'm not clueless at all and i know fucking lot and that's why i'm kinda confident about this. And $70 is literally nothing, if i lose it i wouldn't even care, it's like a $1 of what i've been saving this year

pick a balance that you're okay with potentially losing and divide it up into units then bet with those units. e.g. if you have 100€ in balance split it up into 10€ units also often all the statistics can be pointing to one team winning and the other team will surprise, get used to this especially in a game like csgo, sometimes it can be better to go with your gut feeling you can do live bets if you want to try and get better odds on a team you think will win

Make sure u have some sort of wallet for Bitcoin ready. -Is it worth it to bet on specific stuff (pistol rounds, more rounds than X etc) or just win/lose? As a beginner just stay with Win/Lose Have fun at the major :)

its definately not 50/50 for sure it isnt, i didnt got lucky / reason why i dont do this, it takes a lot of work to find team current forms best pistol players for sure non fixed game and amount most you can bet probably 50 euros most sites dont even offer this bet at all, i know i can predict pistols pretty well i probably could even post my pistol bet history haha you would see like 5 wins and not even 2 lost but i did it long ago so that history is cleared and gone

2021-10-21 20:46
Live bet bro, when a team is getting 0-7 that's the perfect time to bet on the team that is losing. EZ MONEY pd: I don't like to bet on majors, teams usually don't throw matches there.

over 2.5maps if the map pool is even is usually good over 26.5 rounds on maps which are CT SIDED is good if the teams are t1/t2 the odds disparity is at its biggest when the odds are just launched danish teams always win early games like 9-10am
2021-10-21 22:20
1. Avoid first matches of the tournament 2. Avoid teams that didn’t play much lately. You can try to catch good odds betting on them though. I have done that with liquid since they kind of came back strong in eu tournaments after a long break and caught some nice odds on them. 3. Do not bet on handicaps. 4. Do not bet if you keep changing your mind- it means that its a very risky match. 5. Don’t act like a degenerate who has to bet everywhere all the time. Wait for good opportunities, be patient. 6. Odds mean no shit as you can easily find kind of safe matches with 1.7x odds instead of risky 1.4x “heavy favourites”. 7. Do not bet allins so you don’t have to live on the edge. Just bet like 10% of your balance on each bet that you make. 8. Avoid low tier cs unless you really know what you are doing. Many teams have their own retarded traits which makes it very hard to bet if you don’t follow their games actively.

teh biggest mistake is after you've won you think you should bet on every upcoming match. thats when you lose your money, or when you try to win back what you lost the very next day. Betting on t2 can be very profitable. Otherwise bet on teams with 1.5-1.8 multipliers and live bets. never bet against or for navi. but maybe early tournament since they tend to lose then. bet against astralis around january or after the playerbreaks. form during recent matches > ranking and other things.
2021-10-21 23:05
My best recommendation is to bet for fun, not to win money. When i bet, i bet on my favourite teams so i get a bit more excited by the match. i bet low, like 10 KR and i bet on svenskaspel. Their available matches are not that many though, so i stopped looking/betting. Hopefully they will have the Major there.
2021-10-21 23:05
1) It depends. Usually when the bet odds are released, the odds are much much better than they are right before the match. I think in CSGO there is not that much things that can go wrong in few days like in traditional sports. Chance that one or more players get injured or that they will be unable to play is near zero. So I would bet way before the event or match starts, just because of higher odds. 2) I bet on czech betting sites, so my tips would be useless to you. 3) In my opinion its not worth it. Pistol rounds are like a toss of a coin, more or less rounds than X too. So I would recommend you to bet clearly on the winner, or if the betting site have it in their offer, bet on number of maps or exact result. BO3 is actually pretty easy to predict right and you can get extra money in comparison with plain winner betting.

some people say dont bet on pistols i can say instantly its bad advice, because better team usually wins pistols not all the time look at odds decide if you wanna risk, also try predict who good pistol players, if you know the map you even get edge against bookies if you know side you also have edge i think betting companies dont care about this because they probably let you bet just like 50 eu on this so they wont fix edge you can find against them

- Is it better to bet now or way until the last day of every match? Sometimes there are things like visa problems, sickness or something else and teams bring stand ins. You can avoid (odds always change a lot) it if you wait for the last day but it's really rare. - What is the best csgo betting site? I bet on local bookmachers i find them to be more trustful than some russian/chinese sites - Is it worth it to bet on specific stuff (pistol rounds, more rounds than X etc) or just win/lose? Never bet on pistols unless you like coin flips. I usually bet win/lose or +1.5 because esport is very random. Also there are few unwritten rules like never bet on CIS games (tier 4 CIS teams beating Gambit/NaVi) Try to avoid live betting, if you lose your bet DON'T bet instantly 2x more than you lost to make up for your lose. It's better to wait for the next day/match and then bet your normal bet. Avoid betting on overdogs in BO1 format (example: Astralis vs CPH Flames on major, 1.4/1.5 odds on Astralis atm but it will be a close 50/50 game) Don't bet on some very niche t3 and lower leagues. Many matchfixers out there

Tips i have are: Betting is always unpredictable so dont do very big bets, stick to smaller bets and bet on more matches. Beware of Bo1 matches as they are even more unpredictable. I like betting on the exact result like 2-0 or 2-1, sometimes its a great bet. Try to know if a team really needs to win the match you are betting on or if they are just playing because its their job. If you start going on a loosing streak take a day off and dont do any crazy all in bets to get your money back fast, you will just lose it all. Keep looking for a good bet. (specific bet where you are almost sure you will win and the site has good odds for it) See if the match you are betting is LAN or online as it will affect the result a lot. (G2 , Faze and Astralis are way better on LAN) Try finding extra info that will help your bets. (i saw an interview that on Blast Poizon was playing with 60 ping and he was having a hard time playing so i bet against Col)

2021-10-22 16:55
I always just add like 4+ games and bet with like 5 or 10 euros for high multiplier and go with that. Most of them will eventually go wrong, but I'm pretty sure I have made more than I have lost. I just add some esport matches from games that I know like CSGO, Valorant, LoL, Overwatch and then usually add some NHL match or football match to higher up the multiplier. Shit tactic, but sometimes you win 100 euros with 3 euros if lucky. Also better for mental, because losing 10 euros doesn't hurt as much as losing 80 euros. For the most part games are really unpredictable and even huge upsets happen quite often. I use Unibet, because I just started using it. I don't bet much.

You have to be aware that you will likely lose some % of your money in the long run. Betting sites aren't charity organisations. If you keep that in mind and bet some small amounts to have fun, it should be fine, just don't expect to earn big bucks (or any bucks at all). TLDR: Betting is entertainment, not a legitimate way to earn money (for 99% of the bettors)

I think you CAN see betting as a legitimate way to earn money BUT---------- Look at it as an entertainment outlet where you can make small bank if you're feeling COMFORTABLE to take the risk. Have fun with it, make a call that you're happy to make, and if it goes wrong; remember its money that you're supposed to be content with losing Betting should NEVER be your source of income, primary or even secondary. Job first, side hustle or investments second.. betting third? I wouldn't even want to say third since even staking or HODLing crypto is safer then 70% of the matches you could bet on
