Esports betting is very similar to normal sports betting with just different things to bet on specific to the game that is being played. If you were to bet on Madden it is basically like betting on an NFL game as there is a Moneyline offering, a spread, and an over/under. In a madden head-to-head matchup you might not want to bet on the actual team, you want to bet on which person behind the sticks will perform better.
When betting on games like League of Legends and Call of Duty, it is also similar to normal sports betting as you can bet on a specific Call of Duty Team. Esports wagering is not as large as sports betting but it is an industry that is soon to break out.
