Dota 2 betting involves wagering money on the outcome of a Dota 2 match or an event happening in a Dota2 match.

Picklebet provides Dota 2 betting markets and odds are applied to each of the markets. Odds represent the underlying chance that an event will occur.

The Most Common Dota 2 Betting Markets

Match winner. There are three outcomes in a Dota 2 match - win, lose or draw. Pick a winner or the match to finish in a draw.

Map handicap. If you want bigger odds than the match winner markets, check out the map handicap markets. For example, Gorilla (-1.5), they need to win 3-0 or 3-1 in a best of 5 map series.

Map market. There are a range of outcomes in individual maps, you can bet on within the match. For example, activated rune type spawned at 12 minute - map 2.

Correct match score. Pick the correct score. For example 1:1, 0:2 or 2:0.

X team to win at least one map. If you’re not confident in picking a winning team, you can pick a team to win at least one map. For example, NaVi to win at least one map.
