We are going to look at the basics of the game and some BettorMind advice on how to approach betting on Call of Duty esports.

Call of Duty Game Basics

The majority of esports Call of Duty games will be multiplayer matches with two teams each with six players. The teams will do battle over three different variations of games.

Domination – There are various points located on a map and teams achieve points for holding the locations. The more locations you hold the quicker your points accumulate. The first team to reach the designated score wins the round, with most matches being played in a best of three series.

Team Deathmatch – This is the simplest variant of the game. Two teams do battle over an allotted time with the team who reaches the kill total first awarded the win. If neither team reaches the kill target by the end of the match timer, the team with the most kills wins.

War Mode – The objective for this game mode is for one team to destroy or take over the other team’s area. Unlike domination where both teams are trying to secure objectives, this mode is offence vs defence. The two teams will take it turns to play offence in a best of three or five series.


Popular Betting Markets

Match winner – When betting on this market you are selecting which of the two teams will win the overall series. There are no draws in Call of Duty esports.

First Kill – Most popular during team deathmatch where killing is the objective. You are selecting which team or player secures the first kill of the match.

Total Games – This market allows you to bet on whether you think there will be over or under a set number of games during a three or 5 match series.

Games Handicap – If one team is considered much stronger than another, the bookmaker may offer a market on them to win starting with -2 games. This means in a best of five series the team would need to win 3-0 in order for your bet to be classed a winner.
