eSports Betting: Top Events This Week

Saturday, August 1

Tencent LPL-LoL

Bilibili Gaming +102 / Edward Gaming -147

Edward is favored but neither squad has played well enough for us to say which team is better. In the last couple of head-to-head matches, these two have split. Back the team offering the better odds. That’s Bilibili.

Blizzard – Overwatch League

Hangzhou Spark -103 / London Spitfire -138

Spark and Spitfire are in the same boat. Neither has played well. Both are 1-4 SU in their last 5. Also, there’s no reason to believe the favorite, that’s London, is worth backing at lower odds than the dog. We like Hangzhou.

Shanghai Dragons -250 / New York Excelsior +167

It’s difficult to back underdog New York Excelsior. NYE is 5-5 in their last 10. Shanghai is 9-1 in their last 10. The Dragons should roll.

  • eSport Free Pick: Shanghai Dragons

Vancouver Titans +189 / Toronto Defiant -294

Neither squad is in good form. Don’t be fooled by Toronto’s 2 wins in their last 5. One of the wins was against Washington Justice. Can we count that as a real win? Vancouver is due after having lost 5 in a row. Consider remembering the Titans.

Tencent LPL-LoL

JD Gaming -196 /Victory Five +133

JD is en fuego. They’ve clocked 11 straight victories. Victory Five is 7-3 in their last 10. JD should win, but Victory has enough of a shot to warrant a wager. That’s the way we’re going.

  • eSport Free Pick: Victory Five


Immortals +117 / 100 Thieves -169

To us, the Thieves don’t look like a lock. Sure, they’ve won two in a row against the Immortals. But the Immortals have won 2-of-5 and should feel more confident in this match after having battled Evil Geniuses and Cloud9.

  • eSport Free Pick: Immortals

Evil Geniuses -103 / Flyquest -140

We don’t often go chalky, but Flyquest is in much better form than Evil Geniuses. Fly has won 3-of-4. Back them to keep the good times going.

  • eSport Free Pick: Flyquest

Blizzard – Overwatch League

Atlanta Reign -106 / Dallas Fuel -135

Atlanta beat Dallas last year. Fuel are favored, though, because they’ve won 3-of-4. Dallas is due for a step back while the ATL will play tough like they always do.

  • eSport Free Pick: Atlanta Reign

Los Angeles Valiant +282 / Philadelphia Fusion -476

Fusion has lost just 3 matches in their last 10. Valiant has lost just 4 matches in their last 10. In the last 4 head-to-head battles, Valiant has a couple of wins and Fusion has a couple of wins. Philadelphia should take this, but they’re an underlay. We’ll back the overlay.

Monday, August 3

Tencent LPL-LoL

LGD Gaming -140 / Bilibili Gaming -103

FunPlus beat LGD in their last match. However, LGD scored a game victory. They lost 2 games to 1. Why is that important? FunPlus won the 2019 League of Legends World Championship. LGD should do enough to beat Bilibili on Monday.
