Where To Bet Overwatch Online

Graeme

In this category of the site I’m going to talk about betting the e-sport Overwatch online.

Overwatch is a team-based FPS by Blizzard which was released in May 2016. It’s became an extremely popular game and a very popular esport as well.

When it was created it didn’t even focus on being an esport or any sort of dedication towards becoming a professional league however it’s really taken off and the very first professional competition for Overwatch happened just 2 months after its release.

That was Overwatch Atlantic Showdown. Since then many Overwatch professional competitions are out there with a wide variety of prop bets available. In this article I’m going to discuss where to bet Overwatch online, as well as all of the different types of bets available.

Where To Bet Overwatch Online:

America: The best place for any e-sports betting for Americans is Bovada. They don’t go super in-depth in terms of prop bets for Overwatch but they do offer specific match-up betting along with match handicaps.

Everywhere Else: The best general place to bet Overwatch online is Bet365 Sportsbook. They offer a wide variety of Overwatch bets and you can bet on any particular tournament. For example prop bets for each tournament includes the likes of To Win At Least 1 Map or Map 4 Winner 2-Way as well as Match Handicaps. They also offer futures for tournaments as well and are the best option for betting Overwatch online.

Where To Make Specific Overwatch Bets:

Overwatch To Win Outright: The most common type of bet – betting on a team in Overwatch to win outright. In this article I provide details on it and the best places to bet it.

Overwatch Win At Least 1 Map: Essentially a handicap bet in Overwatch betting where you don’t have full confidence in a team to win the match but think they can win a map. I go into detail about that bet here.

Where to Bet Overwatch Tournaments:

Overwatch OWL: Looking to bet on the Overwatch League or see what bets and props are available? I go through it here and provide general Overwatch OWL Betting strategy.

Overwatch Contenders: Overwatch Contenders is a competition that started in 2017. I go into detail about it in this article and where to bet it.

How to Bet Overwatch Online

Bovada: They don’t have a specific Overwatch category. What you need to do is click on the E-Sports section in the left sidebar and then at the top a filter opens up. Click on the drop down and choose “Other E-Sports” and you’ll find Overwatch in there and can add additional filters for Overwatch.

Bet365 Sportsbook: On the left hand side of the site is “Esports”. Click that and all Esports will be displayed. There is no way to filter this list and it isn’t always super organized by game. The title of the event is highlighted in green and you can usually find Overwatch down the page a bit. However be sure to check to the very bottom if you’re looking to bet Overwatch futures. You can then click on whatever bet you wish to make or click multiple then choose to create a bet slip.

What Overwatch Bets/Props Are There?

The most common bet in Overwatch is quite simply betting on who will win a match. This is the most popular and basic bet and will be available at any sportsbook that offers esport betting. What they will often do is provide match handicaps as well because you’ll get big favourites and it’s not worth betting $600 to win $100. However you could bet a team to win at -1.5 for much better odds.

Other Overwatch markets are focused on the Maps specifically – predicting who will win on each map as well as betting that one team wins at least 1 map.

Common Overwatch Betting Questions:

Hey I’m an American – where can I bet on Uprising?

The best and most trustworthy online sportsbook for Americans is Bovada.

Where To Watch Overwatch Online:

Twitch is the best resource currently for watching Overwatch esports tournaments online.

Overwatch Betting Strategy:

The biggest thing about Overwatch betting I find is knowing what teams prefer what maps and using that to your advantage. Also look at what maps certain teams struggle on. There’s always consistency in that and if you spend the time to rewatch previous matches as well as look at the map data, you should be able to find a few nice betting opportunities. You want to be looking for those teams who are consistently solid on a map.
