By Jeff Stinger

The realm of competitive MOBA gaming is in for a treat this week, as several huge matchups in Dota 2 and League of Legends are underway. Don’t miss this opportunity to place some stakes using Bitcoin on the inaugural week of Dota 2’s Arlington Major, as well as the ongoing feuds in two of the hottest Eastern LoL leagues in the thick of their respective campaigns.

Top Esports Betting Picks of the Week (August 1st, 2022)

Dota 2

  • When: Thursday, August 4, 2022

PSG.LGD vs. Talon Esports

The third major of the Dota Pro Circuit this year kicks off with a bang at the Arlington Major as Talon Esports takes on the current (+250) to win the entire tournament in PSG.LGD. With Xepher having to sub in for Q as Talon’s soft support, the consistency of mighty Paris Saint-Germain will likely prevail en route to an easy win. 

Esports betting pick: PSG.LGD (-244)

Fnatic vs. OG

Another team dealing with stand-in players is Fnatic, which still needs to address the absence of its carry (Raven), mid (Armel), and hard support (Jaunuel). That being said, the Red Bull OG crew will likely end up with a better start to its 2022 Arlington Major campaign. 

Esports betting pick: OG (-256)

League of Legends

  • When: Wednesday, August 3, 2022

Weibo Gaming vs. JD Gaming

Over in China, JD Gaming has a chance to surpass LPL leaders Top Esports as the first team to notch 13 wins for the season with Top Esports on a bye for the week. However, Weibo Gaming has been on quite a surge, winning five straight and with its last two wins being 2-0 clinics. This could be a relatively huge upset in the making with Weibo’s momentum staying almost on par with JD Gaming’s own.

Esports betting pick: Weibo Gaming (+108)

League of Legends

  • When: Wednesday, August 3, 2022


Tied at third place in the LCK standings, the matchup between Liiv SANDBOX and DWG KIA is crucial, to say the least. Liiv SANDBOX does have more momentum heading into their showdown with back-to-back wins, whereas DWG KIA needed a get-right victory over doormat Hanwha Life on Wednesday after an earlier 2-1 defeat against sixth-place contender DRX. 

Esports betting pick: Liiv SANDBOX (+180)

T1 vs. Hanwha Life Esports

Although T1 is coming off a loss 2-0 loss to CLK leaders Gen.G, the former is still as strong as they come in the premier Korean LoL league with a dazzling 12-2 record for the season. Meanwhile, nothing’s going right for one-win Hanwha Life, which has been shut out in four of its last seven matches and with no end to the long-running losing streak in sight.

Esports betting pick: T1 (-2,000)
