Top eSports Betting Picks for the Week – December 17th Edition

League of Legends – Demacia Cup

Wednesday, Dec. 19

  • Invictus Gaming vs Suning Gaming

Invictus Gaming last battled in the League of Legends World Playoffs. They went 3-0 in the playoffs, dominating teams like KT Rolster, G2 eSports, and Fnatic. Going back further, Invictus is 8-2 in their last 10.

Suning is 1-4 in their last 10. This past August they dropped a match to Invictus. In their last, Topsports beat them 3:2. Invictus should come out the winner here. They have been playing much better recently while Suning’s been off.

eSports Betting Pick: Invictus
  • Royal Never Give Up vs Edward Gaming

2-3 in their last 5, Royal Never Give Up might not be on their game enough to beat Edward Gaming. Then again, the Royals did beat both Gen G and Cloud9 in the League of Legends World Championships in October.  The 2:3 loss to G2 eSports in their last wasn’t bad because G2’s a top outfit.

Edward Gaming’s gone 4-3 in their last 7. They can challenge Royal Never Give Up and deserve a look as the slight dog in this matchup. The victories over KT Rolster and Team Liquid means they have what it takes to win.

eSports Betting Pick: Edward Gaming

League of Legends – KeSPA Cup

Friday, Dec. 21

  • bbq Olivers vs ES Sharks

Over the summer, bbq Olivers played like a team that had no idea what to do on the battlefield. As far as League of Legends is concerned, the Olivers were one of the worst squads in almost every tournament they entered.

But, ES Sharks will be the dogs in this match. Can the Olivers garner a win? They can and they should. Although they lost to Hanwha Life, KT Rolster, and Gen G back in July, they also upset Afreeca Freecs.

The Olivers are the play.

eSports Betting Pick: bbq Olivers

Superliga ABCDE

  • INTZ vs paiN

paiN’s favored over INTZ. That makes sense because INTZ is only 4-6 in their last 10. INTZ did beat paiN Gaming back on February 25. paiN also didn’t perform particularly well in their last match in March.

In fact, paiN’s gone 0-6 in their last 6 League of Legends battles. It looks like this is setting up for the dog to bite. INTZ’s the play although either can take it off the long layoff.

eSports Betting Pick: INTZ
