After months of planning, it’s my pleasure to introduce our new brand…
CSGOHUB is a name and a brand which has worked exceptionally well for us over the past year, we love it and always will, but it’s very restrictive. We’ve got grand plans and ideas, since launching CSGOHUB we’d wanted to create similar websites for other games like Dota, Overwatch or LoL. Originally we’d planned to create these as separate websites, focused in on each game. You may or may not have noticed that since March we’ve been running Dota2Hub alongside CSGOHUB.
Running two websites stretches our limited resources (we’ve also got keybots, the swapshop and a giveaway site to manage between Para and myself), so when we decided to also cover Overwatch by the end of the year, I had to raise my white flag and surrender to the truth that this would be a bridge too far. I didn’t want the quality to slip.
So, the idea of multiple eSports on a single website became the obvious answer.
A term used in betting frequently when you get advice from someone is a ‘tip’, from this you get ‘tipsters’, people who offer up their betting advice. We thought this was important to appear in our brand and make it clear that our focus is delivering betting tips to you. So before placing a bet, you can ‘Tipify it’ and check in with us first, view tips from our analysts or any one of our 2,400+ tipsters (of varying quality, make sure you check out their profile first).
Nope! All existing subscriptions have been migrated over to the new domain, you shouldn’t notice any drop in service, you don’t even have to re-login.
A better service. Keeping our eye on a small range of sites ensures we’re quicker to react to issues and can afford to spend more time on testing to ensure there’s less breakages on updates.
More options. As we introduce new eSports to Tipify, they’ll be added to your existing subscription, so whether you’re interested in Dota, CS:GO, Overwatch or all of the above, it’s the same price.
More focused development. In the past few months we’ve introduced new tipster competitions, forums, expanded tipster profiles, more subscription options, new designs and redesigns of the existing website all aimed at improving what we can do for you!
Over the next few months we’ve already lined up a host of new improvements aimed at focusing on ensuring that when you want to bet on any eSport, we can help you win by working together as a community. We want to encourage sharing of information, backed up by facts or statistics so everyone can benefit. Since lounge stepped out of the betting scene it’s no longer user vs user. It’s everyone vs the bookies.

When you first start out you’ll be tempted to try to bet as frequently as possible, don’t. Wait for matches with good odds where you or the predictors know the teams. Never force yourself to bet, bet on matches that you are confident in. You may go days or weeks without placing a bet, you’re not in a rush, wait for bets you are comfortable and confident in and profit should follow.
If there’s any uncertainty, don’t place a bet. Save your skins for another day. There will be plenty of other matches that you can bet on.
Betting is always risky, that’s unavoidable. But staying inside a ‘safe zone’ will help cover you off from some really silly bets. When starting out with a low inventory, large bets placed on matches with 80%+ odds aren’t going to return much in general (on lounge, even less due to the inconsistent returns) but you’re still risking a large amount of your inventory for very little.
Equally, odds below 30% sound very, very attractive with huge returns possible. But if you don’t know the teams or all the details, it’s very possible the team doesn’t stand any chance. If you think there might be a chance, reduce the size of the stake or consider an ICB.
Always bet with a percentage of your inventory. Think, what happens if you lose an ‘All in’ bet, do you stop betting for the rest of your life, or just get your wallet out and go again? You may think there’s no risk, however there is always risk. If you’re placing a high bet, stick to an absolute maximum of 20% of your betting inventory.
Always leave enough to bet another day.
If you’re feeling angry or frustrated, your judgement get’s very cloudy. You’ll make a stupid bet and lose. If you just lost a big bet or are on a losing streak, instead of trying to force a bet, you should take a step back, calm down and just take a break, come back refreshed with a fresh mindset.
Betting blind is a purely relying on luck, if the underdog odds are 30%, that definitely doesn’t mean the team has a 30% chance of winning. It just means 30% of the betting community chose that team. A late roster change could mean there’s zero chance for the team to win. Check in with our predictions to help give you some more background on the game.
Use the lounge odds tracker to predict the final odds as the start of the match get’s closer. If the odds are increasing/decreasing for the team you intend to bet on the return may not outweigh the risk anymore. A huge significant switch of odds at the last moment may mean that something shady is going on, mostly in very low tier games, or a sudden announcement, E.g standin may have occurred.
Bookies will put up their odds based on their own expectations, as the bets start coming in they'll tweak the odds to ensure it's still profitable for them. That early stage is key to getting an edge on the bookies.
As soon as you feel like you have to bet again to recoup loses, you’ll feel compelled to make bigger bets with bigger risks. This often starts an endless cycle driving your losses further and further. Instead, after a big loss, take a day off from betting (or a week if was really big). .Keep to the proper bet sizing based on the risk of the match no matter what. You are not in a race to win it back, just take it easy.
Do not blindly follow betting site odds and think that they are correct to the true odds. If a betting site has ‘Team A’ as a heavy favorite, it does not always mean that it’s an easy win for ‘Team A’.
SK beat Na’Vi… Na’Vi beat E-Frag. That means SK can beat E-Frag now, right? No.
There are many factors which contribute to the team winning a match, these factors such as player performance, map selection, strategy and tactics which may not apply to other teams.
