Developer Capcom released Street Fighter V in 2016 for PlayStation 4 and Windows. They stayed true to their roots during the 30 year run of the franchise. Like every game in the series the best fighters take on each other in a big tournament. On the way to glory they defeat great evil and big villains. This background story is highlighted through cutscenes in the Arcade Mode.
Street Fighter V is still a classic Beat 'em up. More than 16 characters to choose from, only two at a time battle it out in a duel. Capcom did a great job to keep the player busy. Beside a classic Arcade Mode the player is able to duke it out in a Versus Mode and even a Challenge Mode with more difficult stipulations.
But the most value a hardcore gamer will find in the game is the Online Mode, where the wheat separates itself from the chaff. The best of the best compete in worldwide tournaments to determine the true Street Fighter and the player who trained their character's combos well.

Beat 'em ups already have a long journey behind them. The success of Street Fighter began in 1987. Back then the first part was produced for the Turbo CD and the C64, but the great worldwide success for the series came with the second title Street Fighter II. The consoles of choice were Nintendo and Atari and even the home computers got one of the best fighting games. Now in 2017, Street Fighter V still battles with the best and tries to keep a hand on the crown for the Beat 'em up throne. Not only is it viable in our living rooms, but also in the competitive esports scene. Therefore the betting providers feed the risk-loving people with some intriguing bets and odds.

The fifth installment of the Street Fighter series has not been very long on the market, but some betting platforms already bring you one or the other bets on esports. Providers like bet365 or betway already give the people a chance to bet on their favourite players. Most of the time the betting sites hold one big bet and that's for the overall winner of a tournament, without any sort of special bet. But none the less it's nice to see the Beat 'em up-scene grow.
But how are the odds? Well, they don't have to hide from other betting odds. It is a risky bet if there's only the possibility to choose the overall winner, because anyone could win the tournament. The odds for the favorites stand at around 4.30, while the dark horses' odds rise up to a value of 500.00. But anything can happen, favorites can fall and the chances of changing odds are often just a blink away.
The only thing that matters for Street Fighter veterans is the yearly Capcom Cup. Players can qualify for it through a special leaderboard, of which 32 fighters will step up to the finals, consisting of one runner-up and the last year's winner. In 2016 the Capcom Cup was held during the PlayStation Experience-Event and it topped their price pool to a fantastic 360.000 USD.
