The esports betting calendar is a custom-built tool that has been designed exclusively for the ICE365 website by escharts.com.

Covering CS:GO, DOTA2 and LoL, the calendar allows users to quickly navigate those esports tournaments that have significant betting impact. It displays real-time, essential streaming data, prize pool information and, for the first time, the estimated value of bets placed on each event.

Ben ‘Noxville’ Steenhuisen, the resident esports expert from award-winning esports data provide Bayes Esports, brings the calendar to life by selecting monthly event top picks. Ben also provides ‘betting first’ commentary on the tournaments that need to be on everyone’s radar.

Bayes Esports picks of the month

Tournament monthly picksReasons for the picks
LoL
LEC Spring 2022
With such a dismal performance by the LEC teams at the 2021 World Championships, it’s been over two months since any of them last played a competitive match – and even longer for the teams which failed to qualify in the first place. That all changes in mid-January when the LEC Spring 2022 kicks off. There’s a lot of uncertainty as to which teams emerged from this crazy transfer period the strongest – so fans will be there right from the get-go for some early impressions. Per Esports Charts, last year’s LEC Spring had 44.3 million hours of content watched. This averaged out at 310k concurrent viewers – the highest ever for a LoL regional league, and a record which could easily be broken this year.
Dota 2
ESL One North America, Tour 1
For the first time in many years, Evil Geniuses is not right at the top of the North American Dota scene. They’ll start their 2022 campaign in third place in the North American league, behind Quincy Crew and Team Undying. This high level of competition within the region has generated increased viewership – already 1.2 million hours of content has been watched for this season (compared with 1.8M total last season), however four of the most exciting matchups are yet to come. With some of these expected to peak at over 100k concurrent viewers, it seems appropriate that NA’s most competitive season also attracts such great viewership.
