Top eSports Betting Picks of the Week – January 15th

Call of Duty League 2024 Stage 1 Major

Minnesota ROKKR vs. LA Guerrillas

  • When: Friday, January 19, 2024

Minnesota had been on a 4-match losing streak, but in their last ROKKR beat Carolina Royal Ravens 3-0. The 4 losses came against Las Vegas, Optic Texas, and Miami.

The Guerrillas have won 2-of-3, beating LA Thieves 3-0 and getting by Boston Breach 3-1. Minnesota looked good in their last, but that was versus Carolina. Back LAG to cash.

eSports Betting Pick: LA Guerrillas -172

New York Subliners vs. Toronto Ultra

  • When: Friday, January 19, 2024

Both these squads are playing excellent Call of Duty. The favored Toronto Ultra has won 4-of-. Toronto’s lone loss in the last 5 came versus Boston Breach on December 17.

New York Subliners is on a 5-match winning streak. In their last, the Subliners took down LA Thieves 3-1. These two are close in talent, which means we should back the one offering the higher payout. That’s the Subliners.

eSports Betting Pick: New York Subliners +104

Carolina Royal Ravens vs. LA Thieves

  • When: Sunday, January 21, 2024

The Royal Ravens do have a victory in their last 5, but it was against Las Vegas Legion. Also, after the victory, Carolina fell apart.

In the 4 losses in their latest form cycle, the Ravens have fallen 0-3 to Miami, Toronto, OpTic Texas, and Minnesota. The Thieves aren’t a great team, but they should have no trouble covering this game spread.

eSports Betting Pick: LA Thieves -1.5 -143

League of Legends – LCK Spring 2024

Team Liquid vs. 100 Thieves

  • When: Saturday, January 20, 2024

Since a 3-2 victory over the Golden Guardians in August, Liquid hasn’t played great LoL. The -256 favorite in this is on a 4-match losing streak after dropping matches against NRG twice, Team One, and GAM Esports.

100 Thieves, though, hasn’t played since last August, which tells us Liquid was in a high-level tournament during the losing streak. Liquid gets back on the winning track.

eSports Betting Pick: Team Liquid -256

Cloud9 vs. NRG

  • When: Saturday, January 20, 2024

Both these teams didn’t play well in their latest matches. Ah, but both Cloud9 and NRG threw down against strong League of Legends squads.

NRG bat MAD Lions and G2 before falling to Weibo in their last. Cloud9 finished their last form cycle in defeats against LNG, T1, and Fnatic in three straight. The odds make the dog an overlay.

eSports Betting Pick: NRG +155

Dplus Kia vs. KT Rolster

  • When: Sunday, January 14, 2024

Dplus Kia remains one of the world’s top League of Legends squads. As of January 15, Dplus ranks second in the world.

KT Rolster ranks a solid thirty-second. Also, the Rolsters beat Dplus in the last head-to-head. The last head-to-head happened to be both teams last match. Backing the underdog in this makes sense.

eSports Betting Pick: KT Rolster +187
