Betting Tips for upcoming Dota 2 and LoL Matches
Esports betting is a new but fast-growing fad. Esports betting has quickly gained the attention of the betting population, and its fame has spread like wildfire since it was discovered. In 2019, the estimated revenue of the eSports market was valued at $1.1 billion, and it was predicted that the viewers would reach and potentially surpass 450 million.
There are lots of eSports games to bet on. Esports betting allows bettors to wager on individual players or teams of players likely to win a particular tournament or match. Just like in normal sports betting, the easiest and safest bet is on an overall winner, in addition to outrights, and totals (total rounds, total kills, total maps, and total points). Let’s take a look at some upcoming matches, odds, and betting tips.
Tips and Odds for Upcoming eSports Matches
Upcoming Dota 2 matches
ESL One Germany 2020
Natus Vincere vs Winstrike Team
Time: October 15, 2020 | 17:00 CEST
Betting Odds: NaVi -454.55 | Winstrike +300 (BetOnline)
NaVi placed 4th at the OGA Dota PIT after defeating OG (2-1), though they hit a snag having lost to VP.Prodigy (1-2). Winstrike on the other hand hasn’t been impressive as they were humiliated by OG in a 0-2 loss with a close win of 2-1 against HellRaisers.
So NaVi is the favorite to win this fixture.
Pick: Natus Vincere -1.5 Maps (-119.05) at BetOnline
Vikin.GG vs 5Men
Time: October 15, 2020 | 14:00 CEST
Betting Odds: Vikin.GG -125 | 5Men -106.38 (BetOnline)
Vikin.GG knocked HellRaisers over with a 2-1 win and was defeated by OG in a 0-2 loss. Having lost to Ninjas (0-2), 5Men trashed Extremum (2-0).
Both teams have met three times with Viking.GG winning twice and losing one game to 5Men. Both teams are not exactly in top form so it’s expected that the fixture will have a drag.
Pick: Over 2.5 Maps (-107.53) at BetOnline
Upcoming League of Legends matches
League of Legends World Championship
Top eSports vs Fnatic
Time: October 15, 2020 | 18:00 CST
Betting Odds: Top eSports -769.23 | Fnatic +532 (BetOnline)
Top eSports have the odds in their favor with a win rate of 67.7, despite having lost two out of five of their recent matches. Fnatics on the other hand won all five of their recent matches, but are lagging with a win rate of 60.9.
While the most conservative gameplay would be a +2.5 handicap in favor of Fnatic, we can also expect them to win a map and Top eSports to win the game by 3-1.
Pick: Top eSports 3-1 Correct Score (+210) at BetOnline
Suning vs JD Gaming
Time: October 16, 2020 | 18:00 CST
Betting Odds: Suning +139 | JD Gaming (JDG) -166.67 (BetOnline)
While Suning is perceived to be the underdog and as such priced at shorter odds, they are however tougher than people think. They might be less experienced but they have shown their strength during the group games. We expect that they will give JD Gaming a befitting rematch as they lost to JD Gaming in the LPL Summer.
JD Gaming on the other hand is the favorite but this match can span to 5 games, with Suning winning at least 2 maps. So we could go for the +1.5 handicap bet on Suning.
Pick: Suning +1.5 Maps (-166.67) at BetOnline
League of Legends Belgian League Country Finals
Aethra eSports vs Sector One
Time: October 16, 2020 | 19:00 CEST
Betting Odds: Aethra +800 | Sector One (S1) -2500 (BetOnline)
Aethra eSports team finished 4th place in the BL Summer regular season and crashed out in the second round of the playoffs to KV Mechelen.
Sector One is the strongest Belgian Legends of Legend team having won titles in both League of Legends Belgian League (BL) splits. Jeroen Segers and co are close to clinching another domestic title to end the season.
Going by the current season, Sector One is a stronger team than Aethra and as such it is expected that Sector One wins this match on Friday.
Pick: Sector One -120.48 at BetOnline
