Looking to bet on Dota 2 eSports matches and tournaments? Here are the best bookmakers for placing bets on Dota 2. 

Dota 2 is a popular eSports video game. It is a multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game and is the sequel to Defense of the Ancients. Two teams of five players compete in Dota 2 matches. 

To showcase how big Dota 2 is in the eSports market, in 2018, the Dota 2 International tournament held a prize pool of $25.5 million USD.

Here are the best bookmakers to place bets with on Dota 2 matches and tournaments.


If you are looking for the most Dota 2 matches, then look no further than bet365 who offer the most comprehensive eSports markets. 

They offer a large number of head-to-head odds on upcoming Dota 2 matches. Whether you have a favourite team that you like to back, or spend a bit more time analysing match-ups looking for value, bet365 will likely have the match available to bet on.

In addition to head-to-head betting on individual matches, you will also find markets such as To Win Outright. This is where you back a team to win that particular tournament. 

For example, Team Secret, Team Liquid and Virtus Pro are all $5.50 to win the 2019 Chongqing Major. 

bet365 also offer specials in relation to Heroes, Players and Teams. Examples of markets available for each type are listed below:

Heroes – Most Assists in a Map, Most Banned, Most Combined Picked and Banned, Most Deaths in a Map, Most Kills in a Map
Players – Highest GPM in a Map, Most Last Hits in a Map, Most Kills, Most Assists
Teams – Most Kills in a Map, Fewest Deaths in a Map, Team that Wins the Longest Map, Team that Wins the Shortest Map


At the time of writing, Ladbrokes only offer Dota 2 markets. 

While some bookmakers such as bet365 will offer a two-way market where you can bet on one of the two teams, Ladbrokes’ market also includes the draw. 

In addition to betting on the outcome of the match, they offer Best of 2 Correct Score (which is like set betting on tennis), Map 1 Winner, Map 2 Winner, Match Up Handicap, Map 1 Team to Slay the Next Roshan, Map 2 Team to Slay the Next Roshan and a few other markets on select matches.

Outright markets are also available with BetEasy as they offer the usual Tournament Winner and To Reach The Final markets as other bookmakers. 

Group Betting is also available on select tournaments with punters being able to select the region of winner. For example, Europe or China are expected to provide the winner of the 2019 Bucharest Minor. 


Head-to-head odds are available with Sportsbet for upcoming Dota 2 matches. In addition to viewing the current odds, you can see Odds Fluctuations and a graph which will showcase price changes. This will allow punters to see if any team is well-backed for their match up.
