League of Legends

G2 vs. Evil Geniuses

  • When: Friday, Oct. 14, 2022

This is a huge match for both teams. G2 hasn’t been on top of their game. The favorite in this beat Rogue back on Sep. 3. Versus Rogue in the rematch on Sep. 11, G2 fell apart, losing 0-3. Since the League Of Legends World Championships started, G2 has fallen to Damwon and JD. G2 beat the Geniuses in the first head-to-head. There’s no reason to believe G2 folds in the second.

eSports Betting Pick: G2 -256

DRX vs. Rogue

  • When: Saturday, Oct. 15, 2022

At the time of this writing, Rogue has won 3 straight LoL matches. On Oct. 8, Rogue beat DRX. Then in their next match on Oct. 9, the slight dog in this beat GAM.

Rogue followed up the 2 straight victories with a 1-0 win against Top Esports on Oct. 10. DRX is the slight chalk because they’ve won 4-of-5. Rogue beat them in the last. Why couldn’t Rogue win again?

eSports Betting Pick: Rogue -102

JD Gaming vs. DWG Kia

  • When: Saturday, Oct. 15, 2022

JD versus DWG should be a fantastic match. The chalk in this has won 5 straight. The victories include a win over DWG on Oct. 8. Damwon, that’s DWG’s full name, remains one of the top League of Legends outfits in the world.

JD is a solid team for sure, but DWG shouldn’t offer odds anywhere close to the current line. Backing overlays is never a bad idea.

eSports Betting Pick: DWG Kia +127

100 Thieves vs. CTBC Flying Oyster

  • When: Sunday, Oct. 16, 2022

Neither the Thieves nor CTBC Flying Oyster are playing well. 100 Thieves has lost 4 straight. One of the losses happened against CTBC Flying Oyster. After beating 100 Thieves, the Oysters dropped their next 2 matches. This can go either way. CTBC Flying Oyster offers the much better odds, which makes them the play.

eSports Betting Pick: CTBC Flying Oyster +102

Overwatch

Florida Mayhem vs. Toronto Defiant

  • When: Friday, Oct. 14, 2022

Florida Mayhem shows a single victory in their last 5. On Oct. 7, Mayhem beat Vancouver Titans 3 games to 2. In their next match on Oct. 10, Mayhem fell to the Atlanta Reign in a 2-3 match.

Like Mayhem, Toronto Defiant has won a single match in their last 5. Unlike Mayhem, Toronto’s victory came against a decent team in the San Francisco Shock. Defiant takes this.

eSports Betting Pick: Toronto Defiant -116

Houston Outlaws vs. Toronto Defiant

  • When: Sunday, Oct. 16, 2022

The Defiant isn’t playing well, but Toronto could have a great weekend. On Friday, they should beat Florida. Then on Sunday, Toronto faces a team they beat last month. Defiant bested the Outlaws 3-0 on Sep. 10. Houston is on 3-match winning streak. Toronto can end the streak on Sunday.

eSports Betting Pick: Toronto Defiant +125
