Daily Esports Betting Tips – Wednesday
With only two slots up for grabs in each group, the European Development Championship still remains one of the most competitive eSports events of the year. The group stages follow a double-elimination format with the opening matches following a b01 format while the remaining matches follow a bo3 format.
Match: K23 Vs Izako Boars
Date: Wednesday February 10th
K23 is expected to square it off with the Izako Boars in the opening match of group C. This would mark the first time that these two teams are meeting in all their competitive fixtures. Prior to this tournament, K23 has been on an impressive run winning 7 of its last 8 matches in all competitions. The team’s only loss of the year coming against Gambit at the Nine to Five tourney.
On the other hand, Izako Boars has also been similarly impressive, winning 6 of its last 8 matches in all competitions. The team’s only two losses of the year came at the Snow Sweet Snow tournament against EXTREMUM and ENCE. Judging from the previous games, it’s quite clear that K23 is on a more impressive run. With only two slots available for the playoffs round, we expect every team in the group to put up a solid fight.
From the previous Group A and Group B matches, we’ve only seen two teams clearly dominate. For the other remaining teams, it has been a close call with none of the teams showing their unwillingness to drop points. While this may prove to be a rather close match, we expect K23 to edge out Izako Boars.
Pick: Izako Boars, -156 @SportsBetting.ag
Match: Movistar Riders vs Sinners Esports
Date: Wednesday February 10th
Sinners Esports is one of the only two teams to qualify for the European Development Championship. During the qualification rounds, Sinners Esports was quite impressive, annihilating Lilmix, Lyngby Vikings, and MBAPPEEK in bo3 single elimination bracket matches. On the other hand, Movistar Riders got into the tournament via an invite, as the tournament allows regional broadcasters partners to invite teams from their respective regions. Movistar Riders has been quite impressive in all the three tournaments it has taken part in this year, winning all 9 matches.
At the 2021 Omen Challenger, Movistar Riders emerged as the outright winners of the tournament by defeating sAw, 2-0. Most of Movistar Rider’s kills were executed by Alejandro Fernandez who managed to eliminate 22 opponents. On the other hand, Sinners Esports has had a rather slow start this year, winning only 9 of 14 matches. At the Snow Sweet Snow tournament, Sinners Esports has already dropped points to lower-ranked PACT, GODSEND, and forZe.
At the OMEN challenge, it was a similar case for Sinner Esports, losing 2 of three matches. Currently, Sinners Esports is ranked 6th on the logs behind leaders Movistar Riders, sAw, and Lyngby Riders. Judging from the dominant display we’ve already seen this year from Movistar Riders, and the rather slow start from Sinners Esports, we expect Movistar Riders to have an upper hand in this encounter.
Pick: Movistar Riders, -185 @SportsBetting.ag
