PrizePicks Adds Call of Duty, Rocket League and Valorant to Esports Fantasy Lineup
That’s right, CoD, Rocket League, and Valorant are now a part of the PrizePicks esports fantasy system. Back in 2019, PrizePicks entered the esports betting world with Hi-Rez Studios’ SMITE Pro League. It didn’t take long to see iRacing and NBA2K League join the fold. These three AAA titles join League of Legends and CSGO as new esports betting offerings on PrizePicks.
Multiple Leagues, Multiple Ways to Play
PrizePicks’ addition of CoD, Rocket League, and Valorant seems to give more options than your average DFS operator in North America. You can make fantasy player props using combinations of the above five games and access multiple leagues in each of the games. This means you can bet on the regular season matches and secondary competitions. Many of those secondary tournaments are even more exciting, so having that as an option is pretty great.
“Esports was an important offering for us in early 2020 when the pandemic shut everything down, but not only did our monthly esports handle stay strong when the NBA, NFL, and college sports returned, it actually grew in unison with our traditional sports over those last six months of the year,” said Adam Wexler, CEO of PrizePicks. “These are franchises with fan bases that span decades in some cases, and they’ve historically been underserved by sportsbooks and fantasy platforms. We’re thrilled to offer this variety of playable options.”
If you want, for example, you could make a prop using PowerEvil of TSM (League of Legends), throw in Elige from Team Liquid (CSGO), and Scump from OpTic Chicago (CoD) for a single day of esports betting on PrizePicks. If you’re of the mind, you could also look at sports like the NBA or MLB. It’s exciting to see huge games like CoD on PrizePicks for esports betting alongside newer esports like Valorant.
