Match Winner

The "Match Winner" prediction in Valorant is quite straightforward. You're simply predicting which team will win the match.
Here's how it works:
  1. 1.
    You look at the two teams playing in the match and decide which one you think will win.
  2. 2.
    You place your prediction on that team. If the team you predict wins, you win the prediction. If the team you predict loses, you lose the prediction.
Factors to consider when deciding on which team to predict include the form of the teams, their historical head-to-head matchups, individual player performance, team strategies, and any recent changes to the team or game updates.

Maps Handicap

"Maps Handicap" in Valorant , is a type of wager designed to balance the odds when there's a perceived difference in strength between two teams.
Here's how it works:
  1. 1.
    A bookmaker will give a "handicap" to the stronger team (the favorites), which is a number of maps they have to win by for a bet on them to pay out.
  2. 2.
    Conversely, the underdog team is given the same handicap but in their favor.
For example, in a Best-of-Three match, Team A (the favorite) might have a handicap of -1.5, and Team B (the underdog) a handicap of +1.5.
  • If you predict on Team A (-1.5), they need to win the match 2-0 for you to win the bet because they need to "cover" their handicap.
  • If you predict on Team B (+1.5), you will win your bet if Team B wins the match, or even if they lose 1-2, because with their 1.5 map handicap, their score is effectively 2.5-2 in this scenario.

Maps Total

"Maps Total" is a market type used in eSports, including Valorant, where you predict on the total number of maps that will be played in a match.
Here's how it works:
  • For example, in a Best-of-Three match, the line might be set at 2.5.
  • If you predict 'over', you're predicting that the match will go to a third map, i.e., both teams will win one of the first two maps. If this happens, you win the prediction.
  • If you predict 'under', you're predicting that the match will be decided in two maps, i.e., one team will win both of the first two maps. If this happens, you win the prediction.

Map 1 Winner

"Map 1 Winner" in Valorant is a wager on which team will win the first map in a match. Each Valorant match is played across several maps, and this bet is specifically on the outcome of the first one.
Here's how it works:
  1. 1.
    You look at the two teams playing in the match and decide which one you think will win the first map.
  2. 2.
    You place your prediction on that team. If the team you predict on wins the first map, you win the prediction. If the team you predict on does not win the first map, you lose the prediction.

Map 1 Rounds Handicap

"Map 1 Rounds Handicap" is a type of bet in eSports, including games like Valorant, which is designed to balance the odds between two teams that have a perceived difference in skill level.
Here's how it works:
  1. 1.
    The bookmaker gives a 'handicap' to the favored team. This handicap represents a deficit that the team must overcome in order for bets on them to win. It's typically a number of rounds.
  2. 2.
    Conversely, the underdog team receives the same handicap but in their favor - effectively a head start in rounds.
For example, if Team A (the favorite) has a handicap of -4.5 rounds for the first map, they must win the map by 5 or more rounds for a bet on them to pay out. If Team B (the underdog) has a handicap of +4.5, then bets on them pay out if they win the map, or even if they lose by fewer than 5 rounds.
