Last updated on November 8th, 2021

Last year was tough for many industries, one, in particular, is traditional sports betting. However, the future of sports betting is not so bleak. This is because recent research has shown that online sports betting has been booming. As many people practised social distancing, punters turned to online means for their wages. For these reasons, this 2021, there are emerging online sports betting industry trends that offer punters better gaming and betting experiences.


Many bookmaker sites are now providing the best offers for online betting fanatics. That’s why knowing the trends for 2021 that will dominate the market is crucial for your success. Here are three trends that every punter should know about:


The Rise of eSports

During the quarantine period, eSports or electronic sports has been one of the sports betting industries that has exploded in the market.

This is due to the fact that live professional matches have been on pause and postponement. Thus, a lot of punters have turned to other forms of sports betting. As shown in the graph above, statistics also show the growth of ESports audiences over the years. In 2022, it is predicted to have 297 million frequent viewers! This means that this trend will not be going anywhere anytime soon and will continue to grow.


Tracking Players

One of the most important factors when it comes to online sports betting is knowing the condition and stats of the players. This can be made possible with the help of player tracking. It is an emerging trend in 2021, and it is useful data for many punters. Through player tracking, punters will be able to monitor certain players’ fitness and activity in real-time. Thus, they’ll be able to make well-informed wages depending on this real-time factual data they have gathered.   


Using Live Stream

Most betting sites now offer live streams for their users. This 2021 the world is getting back up and fighting the pandemic. Many sports events are taking place within safe and secure conditions.
