Rocket League Daily Betting Tips – Thursday
Action in the North American regionals of the Rocket League Championships Season X – Winter: The Grid continues this week. 32 teams will head into week three with hopes of progressing through the group stages of the competition this week.
Heading into the third week, NRG esports, G2, and Spacestation Gaming are some of the favorites to progress to the last 16 knockouts. But will more teams emerge as serious competitors in-game week three? We take a look at some of the clashes taking place this week.
Match: Rogue vs Pittsburgh Knights
Date: Thursday, January 14 @23:00 GMT
On current form, Rogue will be slight favorites heading into this Group A clash. Rogue has won three of their last five matches and six out of 10 in recent months.
Rogue has won their last two matches in a row, beating eUnited in their most recent contest and recording a 4-3 scoreline. They also defeated Alpine Sports 4-2 in an impressive performance at the Rocket League Summit 2 in December. The team’s most recent loss came against Spacestation gaming, who eventually won the Rocket League Summit 2.
Rogue will have to be at their best to get a positive opening group A result against Pittsburgh Knights as they come into this match in similar form. The Pittsburgh Knights lost their most recent game 4-1 to Spacestation Gaming, who enter the RLCS X – Winter competition as third favorites.
But the Pittsburgh Knights beat both Alpine and Susquehanna Soniqs 4-0 before their loss to Spacestation. These results will give the team confidence that they can compete strongly against Rogue in what should be a closely contested encounter.
PICK: Rogue, 1.66 @SportsBetting.ag
Match: The Peeps vs Charlotte Phoenix
Date: Thursday, January 14 @ 22:00 GMT
In Group D, The Peeps enter their match against Charlotte Phoenix as strong favorites. The Peeps are 10th on the Grid leaderboard with 730 points, giving them an outsider’s chance to progress to the latter stages of the 2021 Grid.
The Peeps have won three of their last five matches, beating the Alpine Sports and eUnited at the RCLS Season X Winter Regional Event in December. A team overhaul in August 2020 helped new players, Gyro. AYYJAY and ALLushin to form a solid bond under their new coach, Moopy, who also joined with the players in August 2020.
The new trio led The Peeps to two first-place finishes in the 2020 Fall series. The team topped the B-Tier at the Field S1 – North America: Division 1 in August and won the Beyond Entertainment: ASTRONAUTS Star Circuit S2 – Last Chance Qualifier in October.
Charlotte Phoenix has struggled for results recently, losing three consecutive matches 3-0. In their last ten games, Charlotte Phoenix has recorded just one win – a 3-0 win against eUnited in August 2020.
It would be a huge shock if Charlotte Phoenix managed to beat The Peeps in this match. The Peeps head into the tournament in good form, which will help them record a straight forward win.
PICK: The Peeps, 1.45 @BetOnline
