Thursday, Aug. 8

  • London Spitfire / Vancouver Titans

London Spitfire is tied with Guangzhou Charge in first place with 9 points. Spitfire has gone 3-1 SU. But, as well as London Spitfire has played, they could be in some trouble versus the Titans on Thursday.

Heading into their August 4 battle with the Washington Justice, the Vancouver Titans have won 9-of-10. They’re playing at as high of a level as London. Back the Titans to win this.

eSports Betting Pick: Vancouver Titans

Friday, Aug. 9

  • Hangzhou Spark / New York Excelsior

Hangzhou has lost their last three matches: 2-3 to Valiant, 1-3 versus Atlanta, and 1-3 against Guangzhou. The Spark won’t have much chance against Excelsior on Friday.

New York Excelsior might be on the winning track after a 3-1 win versus Paris Eternal on August 2. Before back-to-back losses to the Shanghai Dragons and L.A. Gladiators, Excelsior had won 7 in a row. New York should play well enough for the victory on August 9.

eSports Betting Pick: New York Excelsior  

Saturday, Aug. 10

  • Florida Mayhem / L.A. Valiant

Mayhem ended a losing streak with a surprising victory against London Spitfire on August 3. Before the victory over Spitfire, Mayhem had dropped 5 in a row.

Valiant has gone 2-1 SU in their last 3. They beat Dallas Fuel and Paris Eternal. They lost to Seoul Dynasty. They should have no trouble with Florida Mayhem.

eSports Betting Pick: L.A. Valiant

Sunday, Aug. 11

  • Philadelphia Fusion / Vancouver Titans

Before beating Houston 3-1 on August 2, Fusion had lost two in a row. They dropped a match to Guangzhou Charge 3-2. Then, Chengdu beat them 3-2. Both those matches were close.

Philadelphia faces a tough opponent in Vancouver on August 11. But, Fusion appears to be on the upswing. On Sunday, they should play well enough to beat the Titans.

eSports Betting Pick: Philadelphia Fusion
