Sports games are the closest thing to ‘real’ sports that esports will ever be – and they have a large intersection when it comes to fanbases. Sports video games appeal even to viewers that aren’t that interested in video games – precisely because they are close to traditional sports.

Esports betting is alive and well in the world of sports games – and there is quite a selection of games out there. Whether you are into football, basketball or another sport – there’s an esport for you out there! Even if you are interested in a game with a fantasy angle, games like Rocket League offer a unique driving sports game experience.

Are sports games in esports growing?

The simple answer is: yes. Along with the esports world itself, sports games in esports are finding more fans, players, investors and so on. Along with that, the betting side of sports games especially is growing quickly – a lot of betting and sports fans are looking to branch out.

Then there is the Fantasy esports world – things like the eNASCAR DFS are becoming more and more commonplace with each week. New providers are picking up sports games and adding them to their repertoire, and large organisations are supporting them as well.

There is a huge variety of sports that manage to draw in all sorts of interested fans – the same is true for sports games, especially as there is such a variety in games. Whether you are interested in a competition between teams, games for one person or many, or even in the management aspect of the sports experience, there is a game for that.

Top Sports games in Esports

If there is a sport, there is an esport for it – but some are definitely more popular than others. Easily one of the biggest is football – FIFA is one of the most popular sports games in esports. Check out all the latest FIFA news here.

Another popular title is the NBA-sponsored NBA 2k and the associated NBA 2k League – one of the most popular sports games out there. Similar leagues also have associated games – the NHL, NFL, Formula 1 and more each have a corresponding esports version – as does the aforementioned NASCAR  league, and even the Madden NFL.

The Betting experience

For betting fans (and sports fans) sports games are the perfect entry into the esports world – you’re probably already used to most of the things you’ll come across when it comes to sports games news and betting.

Games follow the same rules – rounds, half-times, off-side and more. In fact, you’ll even be able to bet on some of your favourite players, depending on which game you are interested in. Titles like FIFA or NBA 2K feature players and teams from the ‘real’ leagues.
