Dota 2, or Defence of the Ancients 2, is an action-packed strategy game and it’s among the most popular games in eSports, which of course means that the betting community finds the game interesting as it offers a wide variety of available eSports markets.
Dota 2 has been out since 2013 and is also known for having the biggest prize pools of any eSport. The International, a Dota 2 tournament held every year in August is considered the biggest tournament in all of eSports.
Beside this huge tournament, you’ll find plenty of odds for lesser tournaments, when the so- called major and minor events roll around during the season.
To have the best possible chance of success it comes down to, just as in all kinds of betting, that you can understand the game and study the teams you’re planning to bet on.
Note: Unfortunately, no US jurisdictions have legal Dota 2 betting yet so it is currently unavailable to Americans. Odds listed below are from European bookmakers so not offered to those betting from the US. As soon as the legal betting market for Dota 2 opens in the US, we will offer the best places to bet and odds from US bookmakers.
