Esports betting calendar

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.

Tournament monthly picksReasons for the picks
CS:GO IEM Cologne 2021The CS:GO royalty are out in full force as an insanely skilful selection of teams descend on Cologne. The play-in stage also features a bit of international variety to guarantee some exciting and unconventional matchups. The structure of the play-in series also provides for interesting parlay options for each concurrent round of action. This event is a real who’s who of the Counter-Strike scene.
League of Legends
LEC
At Mid-Season Invitational MAD Lions placed top four and showed just how highly skilled the premier EU team is on the world stage. If we ever needed proof of how close the regional competition is, the first half of the LEC Summer Split provided it – hopefully the second half will be just as gripping.
League of Legends
LCS
If you thought just Europe was close, think again. North America is going to be a nailbiter as it uses a slightly different format which combines group standings from both splits. Right now, it looks like there are four key contenders but anyone could make a surge just before playoffs begin.
