When looking to bet on eSports, there aren't many games more popular than Valorant. Created by Riot Games, this popular game is a first person shooter (FPS) where teamwork and tactics are vital to a teams success. When betting on Valorant, it may be worth considering beyond the skill of a team and looking at how well they work as a collective unit as on the competitive Valorant scene, the smallest of margins can dictate who wins and loses a game.
Valorant is one of the games that has seen a major increase in players with the popularity of eSports rising, the game has a similar feel to that of Counter Strike:GO meaning that players from one game can transition into the other without too much difficulty. If you're looking at games similar to Valorant to bet on, betting on CS:GO, could be the way to go.
How is Valorant played?
Valorant gameplay is both simplistic but incredibly in-depth at the same time. Two teams of five face off and each team consists of five different agents (out of the 19 agents available), no two players on the same team can play as the same agent and each character has their own set of abilities, meaning there is a character for every playstyle. Whether you're a careful and calculated player or a gung-ho, all guns blazing player, there is a character that matches that description and it makes for very interesting gameplay at a competitive level.
During a round, the goal of the attacking team is to plant a device called the spike on several sites across the map, similar to Search and Destroy for fans of Call of Duty. Defenders have to defuse the device once activated or better yet, avoid the device being planted for the duration of the time limit.
The main difference between Valorant and other games is that at the start of a round, players can use credits to purchase themselves an advantage. These include every health, armour, better weapons or improved agent abilities - all of which come in, incredibly handy when in a 1vs1 situation.
Valorant betting odds will alter depending on the game modes available, for example, some teams will be significantly better in the Spike Rush in comparison to the standard deathmatch, when placing Valorant bets, take the game mode into consideration.
Another thing to take into consideration is particular maps, if you follow eSports teams closely, you'll know their favourite maps. For example, if a team tends to dominate on Pearl but freeze in the Icebox, you may find some Valorant betting sites still favour the "stronger" team even on maps they struggle most on, potentially leading to better, more competitive odds.
