Top eSports Betting Picks of the Week – May 6th, 2024

Valorant Champions Tour 2024 Pacific Stage 1

T1 vs. Gen.G Esports

  • When: Saturday, May 11th, 2024

Underdog T1 has won 3-of-5. The +1.5 dog in this beat Zeta Division, Team Secret, and Gen.G in 3 straight. The 0-2 loss to Paper Rex in the last is why T1 is the underdog.

Gen.G beat DRX in their last. An emphasis is being placed on each team’s last match. That may not be the right way to look at this. Grabbing the +1.5 on T1 makes sense.

eSports Betting Pick: T1 +1.5 +111

Call of Duty League 2024 Stage 3 Major

Boston Breach vs. Las Vegas Legion

  • When: Saturday, May 11th, 2024

Boston is 0-5 in their last 5, which is interesting because they’re the favorite in this matchup. But there’s going 0-5 and then there’s going 0-5.

While Boston hasn’t won a match in a while, they’ve lost most of their matches via 3-2 scores. Vegas is 0-5 and host lost via 3-0 scores. Boston gets the win.

eSports Betting Pick: Boston Breach -123

Minnesota ROKKR vs. Carolina Royal Ravens

  • When: Saturday, May 11th, 2024

Minnesota has won 2-of-5. The wins were versus Boston and the LA Thieves. So although ROKKR has won 2, neither victory was against a top team.

Carolina Royal Ravens is on a 3-match losing streak. The Ravens played well in all 3 losses. Still, the odds make Carolina close to an underlay. Going with Minnesota in this one.

eSports Betting Pick: Minnesota ROKKR +101

Miami Heretics vs. Los Angeles Guerillas

  • When: Sunday, May 12th, 2024

Miami had been on a 4-match losing streak. But in their last, the Heretics got it together and beat the Seattle Surge 3-2. The win was a massive confidence booster.

The LA Guerillas beat Minnesota ROKKR and Boston Breach in April. On April 5, OpTic Texas dusted the Guerillas 3-1. Momentum is on the side of Miami.

eSports Betting Pick: Miami Heretics -116

Toronto Ultra vs. New York Subliners

  • When: Sunday, May 12th, 2024

The only squad that has beaten Toronto in their last 5 is the Atlanta FaZe. Other than the ATL, The Ultra has rolled.

The New York Subliners are on a 2-match winning streak. Both wins came against less than quality Call of Duty teams, Miami and Las Vegas. Toronto makes it 5 wins in their last 6.

eSports Betting Pick: Toronto Ultra -149

LA Thieves vs. OpTic Texas

  • When: Sunday, May 12th, 2024

The Thieves are in the midst of a hot streak. LA Thieves has won 4-of-5 with the lone loss in the last 5 coming against Minnesota ROKKR on April 27.

OpTic Texas is dominating opponents. The favorite in this has won 5 straight. In their last, OpTic beat the Guerillas 3-1. The chalk rules.

eSports Betting Pick: OpTic Texas -204
