Esports betting on SMITE
Currently, there is only one place to consistently wager on SMITE online. AlphaDraft is oftentimes the only, and therefore also the best, place to place eSports bets on SMITE. There isn’t as much real money betting on SMITE as there is on other eSports due to the fact that it has a comparatively low number of tournaments.
Betting on SMITE via eSports fantasy site AlphaDraft is by far the most reliable place for SMITE fans to wager on the game year around, but for the biggest events other sportsbooks do offer lines for wagering on teams.
How does fantasy esports work?
Unlike a typical sportsbook, AlphaDraft is a fantasy eSports site. This means that rather than selecting teams as a whole and betting on their performance in matches against other teams or in tournaments, you “draft” your own team made up of your favorite eSports athletes. Each player costs a different amount to add to your team, and once your entire team has been chosen the performance of your players vs. the teams drafted by others is compared based on a points system.
For SMITE specifically, AlphaDraft’s scoring system is as follows:
Your fantasy team consist of six individual eSports athletes and one SMITE team. Your six players are scored as follows:
- Kills +3
- Assists +2
- Deaths -1
- Gold +0.0002
Your team selection is scored as follows:
- Towers +1
- Gold Fury +2
- Fire Giant +3
SMITE betting strategy
Watching matches on streaming services like Twitch is by far the most efficient way to gain the knowledge you need to make intelligent picks for your fantasy SMITE team or the right choices when betting on SMITE matches. Make sure to take the scoring system into account for fantasy SMITE. Draft the eSports athletes you think are most likely to excel in generating a high score.
Remember – when it comes to drafting a fantasy eSports team, wins and losses don’t matter as much as individual player statistics that help generate points. That is of course hugely different from the strategy that goes into betting on matches where the victory is all that matters.
Shopping for odds when SMITE matches are available
Smite is a fairly new game, and only has one major eSports tournament a year. With that said, it’s a big one. The SMITE World Championship is a huge annual event with much wider coverage than most SMITE matches. While you can continue to wager on the event through the fantasy style of play at AlphaDraft, the World Championship is the one time of the year that other sportsbooks typically also post lines.
When the World Championship comes around, it’s important to shop around and find which sportsbooks offer the best lines on the teams you’d like to wager on. Over a long period of time, consistently getting the most advantageous lines from sportsbooks can add up to have a huge impact on your bankroll – or lack thereof. Bigger sportsbooks like Betway and Bet365 will take action on SMITE teams during this important yearly event, and when they’re available, you can compare lines at the top of this page.
Will SMITE be offered at more sportsbooks over time?
Definitely. As more and more major sportsbooks begin offering eSports and eSports-specific sportsbooks like Unikrn continue to launch and expand the scope of their services, SMITE is absolutely one of the games which will see increased coverage. It is far too popular of a game for sportsbooks to ignore.
