Esports Data Partnership Extension: Abios and Bayes Esports Continue Collaboration

Esports odds provider Abios and data provider Bayes Esports have announced an extension to their existing data partnership. This renewal will enable Abios to continue utilizing official real-time data from popular esports titles, Counter-Strike 2 and Dota 2, to power its odds feeds and engagement features for partners within and beyond the Kambi network.

Real-Time Data Access

Through Bayes Esports, Abios will gain access to official real-time data feeds from several high-tier tournaments in both Dota 2 and Counter-Strike 2. These tournaments are among the most-watched in the world, including:

  • Counter-Strike: BLAST Pro Series, ESL Pro League, and IEM Katowice
  • Dota 2: ESL One

Counter-Strike 2 is a significant contributor to esports betting turnover, accounting for over 50% of total esports betting among Kambi operators. Notably, the ESL Pro League alone drove 13% of esports turnover in Q2 2024.

High-Quality Data for Enhanced Betting Accuracy

Abios leverages the highly granular data from Bayes Esports, obtained directly from IP rights holders, to ensure higher uptime and more accurate pricing. The automated odds feed provided by Abios covers more than 60 market types, including bet builder, player props, and instant markets. This comprehensive approach enhances the reliability, accuracy, and availability of its markets.

Bayes Live Match Data also allows Abios to create detailed scoreboards, further enriching the overall betting experience for end users.
