What types of bets are there for Dota 2?
Dota 2 bookmakers offer as a bet, to bet on the winner. In addition, there are different numbers of betting offers (Dota 2 is usually played in a format in which the first team that scores two wins before the other has won).
But first of all, let's go back to the basics of a sports bet:
To estimate the probability of the outcome of a game, bookmakers calculate the odds. The lower the odds, the more the bookmaker expects the team to win the match. The higher the odds, the less chance the bookmaker has of winning the team/player in question.
The amount of the bet is multiplied by the odds to obtain the gross profit.
For example, use 10 € with a rating of 1.4 → 14 euros, so 4 euros of profit.
To estimate the odds, you should be able to evaluate the current form of a team. In addition, it is advisable to compare the betting offers of different bookmakers for a given game, then to choose the place where the best offer is available

At Dota 2, teams fight for victory and are played in 5vs5 mode. At the beginning of each round, you must choose one of the 99 different heroes. These are divided into categories of strength, ability and intelligence. Most of these heroes have more than four different abilities. As a result, heroes play very differently. The purpose of each turn and task is to destroy the opponent's former (HQ). The map is divided into 3 lanes. The creeps of both sides keep coming up against each other over and over again on these tracks. By killing these enemy creeps and heroes, you get gold and experience points. This increases the level, improving spells or values (HP, mana, influence).
