The peak of the popularity of Dota2 betting in India was in 2016—17 years. Since then, the Indian organizers pay more attention to PUBG and Counter-Strike. Nevertheless, it is still interesting to thousands of spectators and bettors.

Bookmakers immediately offered lines on The International 1, which then became a significant event. Nowadays, dozens and hundreds of tournaments are held annually, where one can make bets.

Bet in play to Dota 2
For pre-match and in-play betting on Dota 2, you need to consider several factors.
First, the bettor should choose a reliable source of information. This site should be posted on the last matches’ results, team rating, meeting history, and other statistics.
Secondly, fans need to choose matches to place money carefully. Is the fight a significant stage o the ladder? What is their schedule? What are the rules at the tournament? Are they usual for contestants?
The media is of great help. Fans learn important news through social networks, news sites, and personal profiles of contestants — substitutions in the lineup, changes in the schedule, the team’s mood, etc.
If contestants perform well in online competitions, it does not mean that they will perform just as well in the LAN-tournament. It is necessary to be careful with wagering on offline games if the contestants have no experience!
To be successful in-play betting on Dota2, you need a good understanding of the game’s strategies and tactics. The result of the game is influenced by:
- choice of heroes (contestants take only five of more than 100 characters);
- team placement on the map;
- performing roles;
- working with neutral monsters, etc.!
This game is loved for its complexity, flexibility, and vast number of strategy options.
Bettors during the live betting pay attention to the selection of characters. Before each battle, the contestants choose five heroes according to their tasks. Each of them is good at certain positions and in specific actions. Each participant is good with one hero and a little worse with others. There is a concept of a signature hero when the player perfectly interacts with this character. Knowing such details already from the start will help estimate the probability of winning Dota 2 live betting.
Live streaming on specialized sites should not be delayed for a second. After all, the situation on the map can change in just a fraction of a second. Bettors should choose reliable platforms with a constant and fast Internet connection. Parimatch India works only on such a stable platform. Especially for the comfort of customers, the bookmaker provides a live broadcast of sports events.
Dota 2 betting odds
The most popular format Dota 2 betting odds is decimal. Here is an example of the match NiP vs HellRaisers in ESL One Germany 2020:
- NiP victory — 1.50;
- the victory of HellRaisers — 2.48!
If a player bets 100 rupees, he will get 1.50 x 100 = 150 rupees in the first case. The net profit will be 50 units. In the second case, 2.48 x 100 = 248, the net profit from Dota betting is 148 rupees. However, the higher the odds, the less likely it is to win. In our example, the bookmaker thinks that the NiP team is the favorite.
The player should analyze the history of NiP vs HellRaisers meetings, the form of the teams, their mood, and the match’s importance. Then, he can make the right decision: to bet on the favorite or the underdog.
