Live betting on Dota 2

Outsiders really do not often achieve serious success at a distance, they rarely send whole series to their piggy bank. But they are able to leave separate cards for themselves. It is important here that the coefficient for their victory, even with leadership and control over the situation, is most often at the level of 3 to 4. Therefore, one successful bet can instantly cover several lost ones. But betting on this strategy is possible only if there are a number of factors:
- The top three characters of the win rate favorite team were banned at the draft stage;
- The outsider had less than four towers destroyed – map control is incredibly important;
- The underdog leads not only by gold, but also by experience, it is very important to follow the dynamics of the charts;
- The weaker team broke away by 10 or more frags.

Losing Favorite Betting
It is possible to win back according to strategies not only based on a high coefficient for an outsider. In some situations, you can very well catch a high odds on a favorite. Strong teams are able to turn the situation around at a key moment, to bring the matter to the final victory. True, here you have to track more factors:
- The favorite on the base has not demolished a single tower;
- The outsider's advantage in gold is in the corridor from 5,000 to 15,000 gold;
- The favorite character, top in value, is included in the TOP-2;
- The game has already passed the 40-minute mark – strong teams look better in late;
- The favorite made a dash for frags – more than 5 kills in a row.

Live betting on CS: GO
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive betting is a tricky business, no surprise at all. In this discipline, the speed of reaction and the readiness of the team for each specific match come to the fore. In addition, when analyzing in a live line, it is worth starting from the economic component, each won and lost round can completely turn the situation around, entail a whole streak.

Lineout Betting by Rounds
Among bettors, the strategy of betting on middles is especially popular. It works optimally in the live line, when it is possible to analyze the state of the compositions, the readiness to achieve a certain result. It should be noted that fights are rarely too fast, especially at major tournaments. But they do not reach overtime too often, since a series of rounds allows you to quickly break away at a decent distance. Therefore, it is necessary to select two options with a high coefficient: one for TB, the second for TM.
For example, one bet is placed on total under 27.5 rounds with odds of 1.85. The second – for total over 24.5 rounds in 1.75. We get a special corridor in which both bets will play – this is the final result of 25, 26 and 27. If the user places a bet of 1000 rubles for each option, then the net profit is 1600 rubles. If one of the intervals does not play, then the client will return almost all of the bets at the expense of the second.

How to bet on an outsider in live?
It is very important to monitor the state of outsiders and their willingness to fight for victory within a single map, as this allows betting with a high coefficient. But you need to understand that often the favorite is able to turn over the most difficult situations. Therefore, cards with the following parameters are suitable:
- At this location, the outsider has more than 50% of victories (both in the entire history of meetings, and in the framework of a separate championship);
- The underdog won the pistol round in the second half of the match;
- The outsider leads with a difference of four or more rounds;
- The most “scoring” performer has made the most kills;
- The favorite has less than 70% of wins on this map in the entire history of meetings.

- The current winrate of the stronger team is over 70%;
