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

 Friday, Feb. 21

League of Legends: LCK 2020 Spring

  • Sandbox Gaming / Afreeca Freecs

After beating APK Prince, Sandbox has fallen off a cliff. An LCK contender in 2019, Sandbox has lost 3 in a row. Afreeca Freecs lost their first LCK match this season on Feb. 15. They should handle Sandbox.

eSports Betting Pick: Afreeca Freecs

  • Dragon X / Gen. G

The Freecs beat Dragon X at the KESPA Cup back in January. But since the LCK started, Dragon X has rocked. They’re 4-0. Gen.G. is 3-2. But although Dragon X looks tough, Gen.G beat the Dragons 2-1 in the last head-to-head. Back Gen.G.

eSports Betting Pick: Gen.G

Saturday, Feb. 22

League of Legends: LCK 2020 Spring

  • Hanwha Life / Griffin

After starting the Champions Korea season with 2 straight losses, Griffin has picked it up. They’re 2-0 in their last couple of matches. Hanwha won their last match against Sandbox. Before that, they had lost 2 in a row. Give the nod to Griffin.

eSports Betting Pick: Griffin

2020 Overwatch League Week 3

  • New York Excelsior / Philadelphia Fusion

New York Excelsior has started the 2020 Overwatch League Season off right. They beat London Spitfire and Boston Uprising. Excelsior is 2-0 in the last couple of head-to-head matchups. Both happened in 2019. Fusion has gone 2-3 in their last 5. Go with Excelsior.

eSports Betting Pick: New York Excelsior

Sunday, Feb. 23

2020 Overwatch League Week 3

  • London Spitfire / Washington Justice

Often, London Spitfire sends a top Overwatch team into battle. Not this season. At least, not yet. London is 1-4 in their last 5. Justice is 3-2 in their last 5. But Spitfire beat Washington twice last year. Soon, London should get it going. Back them over Washington Justice.

eSports Betting Pick: London Spitfire

Monday, Feb. 24

Counter-Strike: IEM Katowice 2020

  • Astralis / Cloud9

Astralis didn’t play great at the Blast Premier-United Kingdom. They dropped both their matches. Astralis is a top Counter-Strike squad, though. They should get back on the winning track with a victory against Cloud9.

eSports Betting Pick: Astralis

  • Natus Vincere / FaZe

NaVi is on a 3-match winning streak: 2-1 against Astralis, 2-0 versus Vitality, and 2-0 over compLexity. FaZe is 3-0 in their last 3 as well, though. FaZe beat Team Liquid twice at the Blast Premier-United Kingdom. This match can go either way, but FaZe won on the winner’s stage at the Blast Premier-UK. NaVi won on the loser’s stage. Back FaZe.

eSports Betting Pick: FaZe
