When you look at the modern sports betting world  you could get taken aback by the lack of sports with the coronavirus pandemic having most sports shutdown. With the shutdown it has led to people looking to a variety of sports to bet on and one that is up and coming in popularity right now is the esports world. These sports, which are basically video games played remotely by the players in teams against other teams. So what are some of the popular esports that you can wager on  and potentially win some decent money.


The game here is very straight forward in the fact that it commonly pits some of the best players of the game against each other. However, the game recently has started to have NBA players who also play the game playing against each other over the Internet. This type of competition is not only fun, but it is getting the NBA players a level of competition and allowing the traditional gamers a chance to play against some of the leagues greats as well. A common betting type for this sport is betting with the individual games or even on the results of an entire tournament.

The League Of Legends

This is  game that has grown in popularity and going to be a game that a lot of people are going to fall in love with. The game is one that has allowed a lot of people to start to play in the game, but only the best are the ones to place wagers on. Just like the NBA 2K game, the wagering here is typically done on the individual games, but some people and even betting sites do allow wagering on this sport to be done on the entire tournament.

Counter Strike: Global Offensive

This is one of the original tournament based type of games that people are betting on online. Now, the game has been around for a long time and does have a very popular following, but it is important to note that if you are betting on the game try to back the Swedes as they are really good at this game and have their teams worked out to work like the U.S. Navy Seals without and errors.

Madden Football

The Madden Franchise has been one that has been making improvements for years and the game has gotten better each year. However, what you have probably seen already being features on ESPN and other sports networks during the season is the tournaments that are normally held in Orlando with the players facing off head to head. Well, that is what you get here, but unlike the other games that have the people posted far away from each other, this is one that has the players playing remotely and generally they participate in tournaments for what can really add up to a large amount of money.

Call Of Duty

Generally the esport for the Call of Duty Franchise comes in the form of latest game, but a popular edition for wagering tends to be the Modern Warfare series. This is going to allow a lot of the players to get used to the controls. The wager for this generally is a little bit more complicated as the game has individual player games against each other and that is how the wager tends to be set. At the same time, though, some people will want to water on the entire tournament that is being played at any given time.

While traditional sports are going to come back eventually a lot of people are getting the itch to wager on something. With that being said, one thing that you can do is look at esports, which is more of a type of betting online on sports played by video gamers. Some people have found these sports are worth wagering on and could easily be the next big thing for everyone who is looking for something to wager on and want to avoid Russian table tennis.
