PUBG Bet Types
Outright Champions Betting Odd

Round Winners Betting Odds

Most Kill Betting Odds
The most kills betting esports odds are offered before the tournament starts, and you can not bet on the most kills once it’s underway. Just like the outright winner odds, it is also a pre-match bet.
PUBG is a battle royal game where you can team up with friends or play solo. You land on a deserted island along with other players. Upon landing, you need to check the abandoned houses, roadsides, bridges, and other infrastructures for picking up supplies like medical kits, energy drinks, ammunition, guns, fuel, and throwables (grenade, smoke grenade, flash bang, and more).
Then you need to strategies how you and your team will use the resources you got to keep surviving till the end and eliminate your enemies in the game. The team that survives all the killing and the blue zone is declared the winner and wins a chicken dinner!!
PUBG game modes can be generalized into two types. The first is ranked match mode and unranked match mode. Below we have provided details regarding that.
You play ranked to climb the leaderboards and see who has the highest total ELO, concurrent wins in a session, and/or kills per match.
Unranked games are mostly for players who want to learn the game or play non-competitively.
