CS:GO Counterstrike – Gamers Club Series A Playoffs
- When: Friday, May 6
Stars Horizon vs. ex-Black Dragons
Stars Horizon is on a 2-match losing streak. On April 21, ex-Black Dragons beat Stars Horizon 1-0. Then in their follow-up match on April 30, Uno Mille bested Stars Horizon 2-0. But before the 2 losses, Stars Horizon had won 3 straight over Cruzeiro, Blackhat eSports and Meta Gaming BR. The ex-Black Dragons have lost 3 straight, all by 2-0 scores. Stars is the play.
eSports Betting Pick: Stars Horizon
MIBR Academy vs. B4 eSports
On May 2, MIBR Academy dusted SWS Gaming 2-1. The win came after a loss to Arctic eSports. Before losing to Arctic, MIBR had won 3 straight over Red Dragon, Stone Esports, and Meta Gaming BR. B4 eSports has lost 2 straight. On April 19, Cruzeiro beat B4 2-0. Then on April 20, Arctic eSports bested B4 1-0. But the loss to Cruzeiro was the second match of the day. Earlier on April 19, B4 beat SWS 1-0. Still, MIBR Academy is in great form. B4 falls.
eSports Betting Pick: MIBR Academy
Red Dragon vs. First Memory eSports
Red Dragon has won 2-of-5. The 2 wins happened against SWS Gaming on April 4 and ex-Black Dragons on May 2. First Memory eSports has won 1-of-5. The likely underdog beat ex-Black Dragons 2-0 on April 22. Losses to SWS Gaming, Meta Gaming BR, Stone Esports, and Arctic eSports in their last on May 2 makes First Memory unplayable.
eSports Betting Pick: Red Dragon
Dota 2 Pro Season 11 Southeast Asia
- When: Saturday, May 7
RSG -122 vs. Motivade.Trust Gaming +664
This is RSG’s second match on Saturday. Earlier in the day, the favorite in this takes on Execration. RSG is going to have a tough time beating Execration. Whether they win or lose, RSG should hang with Motivade (or Motivate). But the odds suggest Motivade has no shot and that’s not the case. Before falling to Army Geniuses on April 30, the team based out of Thailand had won 2 straight. The draw at +132 is the best play.
eSports Betting Pick: Draw
Nigma Galaxy SEA vs. Lilgun
This is Lilgun’s first match of the day. It doesn’t look as if the underdog has much of a chance. It’s not that Lilgun is in terrible form. But in their first contest on May 7, Lilgun faces one of the better Dota 2 squads in the Southeast Asia league. Nigma Galaxy SEA has drawn twice in their last two. The draws were versus decent squads RSG and Army Geniuses. Before the draws, Nigma had beaten OB.Neon and had fallen 1-2 versus Execration. Nigma gets the nod.
eSports Betting Pick: Nigma Galaxy SEA +145
