Top eSports Betting Picks for the Week – February 25th Edition

League of Legends  – LCK 2019 Spring

Thursday, Feb. 28

  • Sandbox vs Afreeca Freecs

Sandbox has been in slightly better form than Afreeca Freecs. Overall, Sandbox is 7-3 in LCK 2019 while Afreeca Freecs are only 3-7. However, since Sandbox started the season winning their first 5 matches, they’ve come back down to earth big time. They’re only 2-3 in their last 5.

One of the losses was to Afreeca Freecs. Sandbox won’t be favored by much if they’re favored at all. Some will jump on Afreeca Freecs because they beat Sandbox in the last head-to-head, but Sandbox has what it takes to the turn the tables on their rivals.

eSports Betting Pick: Sandbox

Friday, March 1

  • KingZone Dragon X vs Hanwha Life

This should be a great matchup. Hanwha Life has played well, winning 3-of-4 and going 4-2 in their last 5. They’re 6-4 overall.

KDX is also 6-4. However, KingZone is 6-2 in their last. 8. They appear to have turned things around after starting the season going 0-2. Have they turned things around enough to beat a quality team like Hanwha Life? Probably, not.

Hanwha dominated KDX 2-0 in the last match between these two. That match took place on Feb. 15. It’s hard to see what KDX can do to force a different outcome. Hanwha should beat KingZone again.

eSports Betting Pick: Hanwha Life

  • SK Telecom T1 vs Gen.G

Although Gen.G beat SK Telecom in the League of Legends Champions Korea Quarterfinals back in September, SK is the team that’s really stepped it up during the LCK 2019 Spring. They even gained revenge over Gen.G 2-1 on Feb. 16.

Gen.G will fight, but SK Telecom is hot. They bring a 4 match winning streak into this Friday battle. They’ll take down Gen.G although it won’t be easy.

eSports Betting Pick: SK Telecom 1

Saturday, March 2

  • Afreeca Freecs vs Damwon

Damwon is 4th in the League of Legends Korea Champions Spring Standings. Afreeca Freecs is 8th. Based on the standings, Damwon should have no trouble beating Afreeca Freecs on Saturday.

Damwon has won their last 4 matches a combined 8 games to 1. Only SK Telecom put a game loss onto Damwon. They’ll dominate Afreeca Freecs on March 2.

eSports Betting Pick: Damwon
