Top eSports Betting Picks of the Week (October 3rd, 2022)

League of Legends

G2 vs. DWG Kia

  • When: Friday, Oct. 7, 2022

G2 has won 4-of-5. But although the slight underdog is rolling, G2 lost their last match, a contest versus Rogue. DWG Kia has won 3-of-5. The 2 losses happened versus the same team, rival T1.

DWG plays out of the South Korean League, which means they’ve faced stiff competition all season. The chalk wins.

eSports Betting Pick: DWG Kia -208

T1 vs. Edward Gaming

  • When: Friday, Oct. 7, 2022

Two of the best League Of Legends squads on the planet throw down on Friday when Edward Gaming takes on T1. The slight favorite in this has played great, beating DWG Kia in the last couple of head-to-head matches.

T1 fell to Gen.G and Liiv Sandbox in 2 of their last 5. Edward has won 3-of-5. 2 of Edward’s wins were against top LoL outfit Royal Never Give Up. The slight dog can get it done.

eSports Betting Pick: Edward Gaming -106

Rogue vs. Gam Esports

  • When: Sunday, Oct. 8, 2022

Gam has won 4-of-5. The only loss happened in a 2-3 match versus Saigon Buffalo. Gam exacted revenge over their rivals in a 3-0 victory on September 4. Gam is playing well enough where they deserve a look.

But we shouldn’t get too excited about backing the underdog. Rogue has won 4-of-5. The only loss in the last 5 happened in Rogue’s last versus top LoL squad G2. The favorite wins.

eSports Betting Pick: Rogue -192

Cloud9 vs. T1

  • When: Sunday, Oct. 8, 2022

U.S. squad Cloud9 is on a 4-match winning streak. Cloud beat Evil Geniuses in late August and 100 Thieves twice in the first two weeks in September. We discussed how well T1 is playing earlier in this blog.

Sometimes as an eSports handicapper, we’ve got to suck it up and accept low odds. In this case, that means grabbing the -526 on T1 and either backing the Korean League squad straight up or putting T1 into a parlay with Rogue.

eSports Betting Pick: T1 -526

Dota 2 – The International

Nouns vs. Polaris Esports

  • When: Saturday, Oct. 8, 2022

Elon Musk’s favorite eSports tournament is happening right now. So many great matchups happen this week that we had to bang our heads to find 2 we consider most playable. Both Nouns and Polaris Esports offer over +200 odds because we can also back the draw. Both squads have gone 3-2 in their last 5 matches.

Nouns has the higher winning percentage, but the win rate is exactly the same. The American team, that’s Nouns, is the underdog. It’s tough to go against Polaris at the odds they’re showing.

eSports Betting Pick: Polaris Esports +207

Xtreme Gaming vs. Virtus.pro

  • When: Saturday, Oct. 8, 2022

Virtus is on a 4-match winning streak while Xtreme has lost 2 straight. The reason Virtus is the dog is because the last match they played was back in July. The layoff won’t matter. We can be sure Virtus has practiced leading up to the most popular Dota 2 tournament of the year. The slight underdog can win.

eSports Betting Pick: Virtus.pro +218
