Top eSports Betting Picks of the Week (July 4th, 2022)

Dota 2

  • When: Friday, July 8, 2022

HellRaisers vs. PuckChamp

The chalk in this has won 4 straight and has won 4-of-5, which means the last loss happened a while ago. How long ago was it when HellRaisers last loss? Do you remember June? No Sorry beat HellRaisers 2-0 on June 10. Since then, HellRaisers has rolled, blasting X3, Team Empire, Nemiga, and Hydra.

PuckChamp has won 3-of-5. 1 of the last 3 wins was versus No Sorry. If we’re looking at how these two fared agianst similar opponents, PuckChamp has done better. The dog is the play.

eSports Betting Pick: PuckChamp +120

Infamous Gaming vs. Tempest

Infamous has won 3-of-5. The bad news is that the favorite in this is on a 2-match losing streak. On June 26, Infinity beat Infamous 2-1. Then on July 1, beastcoast beat Infamous 2-0.

Tempest has won 2-of-5. After beating Wolf Team on June 12, Tempest lost 3 straight to Infinity, beastcoast, and Thunder Awaken. Tempest beat SG e-sports on July 1. There’s a chance Tempest starts a winning streak. The better chance is that Infamous ends their losing streak.

eSports Betting Pick: Infamous Gaming -233

Dota 2

  • When: Saturday, July 9, 2022

T1 vs. Polaris Esports

Neither Korean squad T1 nor Philippine team Polaris is in good form. T1 has won 2-of-5. The 2 wins happened versus Nigma Galaxy SEA on June 16 and Team SMG on June 22. Polaris hasn’t won any of their last 5 matches. The underdog in this has fallen to Talon, Nigma Galaxy SEA, Team SMG, RSG, and BOOM Esports.

But although T1 has at least won a couple of matches, Polaris is the play. These two are similar in talent, which means T1 offers underlay odds. Grab the overlay odds on the underdog.

eSports Betting Pick: Polaris Esports +161

Ivy vs. Bald Reborn

The odds in this match imply a competitive contest. In between a loss to Nigma Galaxy on June 7 and losing to Into the Breach on June 29, Ivy won 3 straight versus 11Monkeyz, Brame, and EU Rejects.

Bald Reborn has also won 3-of-5. The chalk beat EU Rejects and 11Monkeyz. In their last match on July 5, Bald Reborn bested Brame. Both are good enough to win this. Ivy gets the nod because they offer slightly better odds.

eSports Betting Pick: Ivy -109

League of Legends

  • When: Sunday, July 10, 2022

TT Gaming vs. Invictus Gaming

Neither squad heads into this playing their best. TT Gaming has won 2-of-5. The victories happened versus WE on June 23 and in their last on July 4 versus BLG. Invictus is on a 4-match losing streak. Their last win happened on June 13 versus FunPlus.

Beating FunPlus is no easy task. Also, Invictus has won the last 3 head-to-head matches. Still, the odds on the chalk make Invictus an underlay.

eSports Betting Pick: TT Gaming +103

Edward Gaming vs. Victory Five

Both these squads are playing great. Edward has won 3-of-5. Victory Five is on a 5-match winning streak. No doubt, the favorite’s wins have impressed. During the streak Victory Five has beaten Royal Never Give Up, FunPlus, LGD Gaming, Team WE, and Anyone’s Legend. Edward is good enough to win, but Victory Five is playing like one of the best LoL teams on the planet.

eSports Betting Pick: Victory Five -152
