Betting Tips for the Top Upcoming eSports Matches
Dota 2 Upcoming Match
Tournament: WCAA Winter Challenge Cup 2020
Match: Forest Vs. Phoenix Gaming
Date: December 29, 2020, at 11:15 Central European Time
The WCAA Winter Challenge Cup 2020 is for Asia based Dota 2 teams. The tournament has a prize pool of about $23,000 that will be shared among the first eight teams. Of course, the larger chunk of the prize money will go to the winner of the tournament. Ten teams came into this tournament, which followed a best of three single round-robin format. The bottom two teams are eliminated, while the top 2 advances to the Upper Bracket Round 2 in the Playoffs. The seventh and eighth-placed teams will advance to the Lower Bracket in the Playoffs, while the third to sixth seeds will advance to the Upper Bracker Round 1 in the Playoffs.
Every other match in the series will follow a best of three formats, while the Grand Final will be a best of five bouts. The winner will be crowned the 2020 WCAA Winter Challenge Cup Champion and will go home with $6,881 cash as prize money.
The group stage is about to be concluded as we will soon find out which teams made it to the Playoffs and which ones will be eliminated. This fixture will feature Forest and Phoenix Gaming. It is clear what will be of Phoenix Gaming but Forest still has a chance to secure a strong position in the Upper Bracket Round 1 in the Playoffs.
Phoenix Gaming has recorded notable wins against opponents like Invictus Gaming and iG.Vitality. However, they are in a poor run of form and do not have a chance of making the Playoffs round.
Forest, on the other hand, looks solid in fifth place and has a chance to even move up the table with a win. Both teams are not exceptional, but the odds favor Phoenix Gaming. On paper, Phoenix looks like the team that will come out on top, but with how things have played out in recent times, you cannot put it past Forest to cause a major upset.
That said, Forest has a better chance of winning. Phoenix Gaming might not be swept but it is unlikely that they will do enough to secure the win. At BetOnline, Phoenix Gaming is favored to win with -222, while Forest’s odd stands at +160.
Betting Pick: Win: Forest (+160) at BetOnline.
This is the best bet to make in this fixture, as it would be very profitable in the end. Even if a sweep might not happen, Forest is more likely to clinch a win.
StarCraft 2 Upcoming Match
Tournament: IntoTheAlphaX Trovo Rumble #2
Match: Ragnarok Vs. Dream
Date: December 29, 2020, at 16:00 Kore Standard Time
The South Korea based tournament will see eight players compete for a share of the prize pool of $500. The players are split into two groups. The top two players in each group will make their way to the Playoffs. All matches before the Semifinals will be a best of three matchups. The semifinals will be a best of five situations, while the Finals will be a best of seven fixture.
It is a difficult game to call, as both players are not in the greatest form. Ragnarok is not as strong as he looked in November and earlier this month. Dream also has recorded some losses in recent times, though they have come at the hands of worthy opponents.
Their last four meetings have been split, and there is nothing to separate them, not even their form. BetOnline favors Ragnarok but backing a team to win is can be tricky. It will be very close, and in matches like these, backing any team to win will take a lot of guts. However, Dream looks more likely to win.
Betting Pick: Win: Dream (-101) at BetOnline.
