Total markets in sports betting they are something very common. In fact, removing the single winner bets, we would say that it is one of the markets where you bet the most. In this article we are going to explain what totals bets are and how useful they can be.
If we refer to traditional sports, the totals bets are mainly in terms of goals or points in basketball. This type of market serves us especially when we are not sure who is going to win, but perhaps we believe that there will be a lot of goals or points. It is a market where statistics lovers can rely on the numbers to bet.
Totals can also be applied to other types of bets not just about goals or points. For example, throw-in totals, fouls, scorecards. They are types of bets in which one can rely heavily on statistics or sensations.
Total markets in eSports bets.
These types of markets have many outputs in eSports, from rounds totals in CSGO, the match, by half, by team … to total towers in League of Legends.
Speaking of League of Legends which is the esport for which I forecast, I would say that it is an essential market. Sportsbooks offer team, global kill totals, rook totals, dragons, nashor barons, and inhibitors. The good part about this is that If we can read the patch changes and understand the game quite a bit, someone with a profile like mine will be able to find value in these totals. Unlike football, in League of Legends the way of playing constantly changes, so it is normal to see that making 5 dragons one month is very easy and the next it is not.
It is very easy to bet on these markets. They are very similar to handicaps, in fact you can bet on Asian handicaps of totals. For example, +22.5 deaths, meaning that there will be at least 23 deaths. They are even simpler than handicaps, just We choose our selection and to know if it has come out the winner we will have to add what the two teams have done.
