Before you bet
The deceptively simple at first glance gameplay of the Rocket League cannot be compared with the gameplay that you can see at a professional level of the game. Since the only similarity to a more traditional game of football is a winning condition for scoring more goals than your opponent, you first need to learn the basics of the game, what roles and playing styles players can play, from defense to true attackers.
Since the Rocket League is considered a niche eSports from the point of view of bookmakers, only top-level tournaments will be presented on their pages, so you will need to choose a region that you like and find out which teams to play there, what are their main strategies during the match, and what style of play they prefer.
Major betting markets
- Match winner - One of the most common markets that came from traditional sports. This is a market in which you simply bet on which team will win until the end of the game.
- Total markets - During the RLCS finals, some bookmakers could offer common markets for cards (over / under) during the match. In this market, you are betting that the condition is greater or less than the number set by the bookmaker.
- The winner - Outreach bets are similar to traditional sports bets. When you bet not on a specific match but on the outcome of the whole event. This type of market is much more prone to team mistakes, as this market continues longer, during which the team you bet on can off-beat during the tournament, but ultimately come back and win the competition.
