Top Matches

Clutch Gaming vs. FlyQuest

  • When: February 17 (7:00 PM)
  • Records: 3-4 / 3-4
Clutch Gaming pulled off a huge comeback victory against Team SoloMid to kick off Week 4 in the North American League Championship Series Spring Split on Saturday in Los Angeles. To make their weekend even better, they also pulled off an impressive win over OticGaming on Sunday.FlyQuest pounded 100 Thieves on Saturday in just 35 minutes, but they could not finish off their weekend in style as they fell to Cloud9 on Sunday after taking an early lead against an elite C9 squad.Now, heading into this Friday night showdown, I’ve got to believe that Clutch Gaming will get it done to extend their winning ways based mostly on the phenomenal play of jungler Nam “LirA” Tae-yoo’s Kha’Zix and mid laner Fabian “Febiven” Diepstraten’s Cassiopeia, Clutch went on an absolute tear in the final 10 minutes of their Sunday match against OpTic and I believe that will carry over into this matchup.eSports Betting Pick: Clutch Gaming

100 Thieves vs. Echo Fox

  • When: February 17 (8:00 PM)
  • Records: 4-3 / 6-1
First 100 Thieves lost to FlyQuest on Saturday and then they became the first team to lose to the previously winless Golden Guardians. Echo Fox handed Guardians a loss on Saturday and then backed that win up by beating Team Liquid in domination fashion a day later as jungler Joshua “Dardoch” Hartnett’s Zac and mid laner Kim “Fenix” Jae-hun’s Cassiopeia completely dominated. This pick is as easy as pie as Echo Fox will stay red-hot by getting the win against 100 Thieves, likely in dominating style.eSports Betting Pick: Echo Fox

Echo Fox (7-1) vs. Cloud9 (7-1)

When: February 18 (8:00 PM)Records: 7-1 / 7-1Since you already know what Echo Fox did in Week 4, you should know that Cloud9 pounded the hell out of Team Liquid in 30 minutes on Saturday thanks mostly to a Baron power play around the 22-minute mark that pretty much-left team Liquid with no hope. On Sunday, Cloud9 had to weather a furious start from FlyQuest to get the win and extend its winning streak to five games. Cloud9 mid laner Nicolaj “Jensen” Jensen’s Azir was almost singlehandedly responsible for the comeback win, but I’m thinking C9 will have its hands completely full against an Echo Fox team that has been a bit less vulnerable through eight games in my opinion.Echo Fox is one of the eSports Betting favorites week after week.While these two are tied for the lead in the North American Championship Series Spring Split, right now, I believe Echo Fox is the better team and will get the win here on Sunday in a thriller.eSports Betting Pick: Echo Fox

Team Liquid (5-2) vs. Golden Guardians (1-7)

  • When: February 18 (9:00 PM)
  • Records: 5-2 / 1-7
Team Liquid was on the wrong end of a loss to Cloud9 on Saturday and they took another loss to Echo Fox a day later. However, all that does is make me believe that Golden Guardians is in for a real beatdown in this matchup despite getting their first win of the season last weekend. Team Liquid took a pair of embarrassing losses in which they got completely dominated last weekend, but they’re the easy pick to rebound against a Golden Guardians team that is fortunate to have one win heading into Week 5.eSports Betting Pick: Team Liquid
