What is DOTA 2 & How do I bet on it?

Developed by Valve Corporation, the game itself is played between two teams of five players, and each player will have a specific role while playing if one team is the favourite team, they will likely have shorter betting odds.
Within the gameplay, the teams will face off against each other in a moba arena and will face off against each other to destroy structures defended by the other team. While playing, each player will provide a different element to the team within their chosen roles, whether it's carry, midlane, offlane, soft support or hard support. To win, the first team to destroy the other team's base wins, and this is normally done by taking advantage of mistakes made by opponents in the late game.
