Top eSports Betting Picks of the Week (October 31st, 2022)

CS:GO

EC Brugge vs. Team Blink

  • When: Friday, Nov. 4, 2022

Brugge has won 2-of-4. The victories came against Infinite Gaming and Aokigahara. The good news about the victory agianst Aokigahara is that it happened on Nov. 2.

So EC Brugge will enter this after a victory. Team Blink lost their last match to BakS eSports. But before the loss, Blink had taken down Lagom and before beating Lagom, Team Blink had bested Enhanced Esports Club. The +100 choice has a chance.

eSports Betting Pick: Team Blink +100

Alternate Attax vs. Nexus Gaming

  • When: Saturday, Nov. 5, 2022

Alternate Attax has won 3-of-5. In their last, Attax beat Los Kogutos 2-0. The victory was a revenge win since Kogutos bested the chalk in this on Oct. 28 in a 2-0 match.

Nexus heads into this on a 3-match winning streak. The underdog beat eClub Brugge, Linx Legacy D, and BeyondPossible in their last 3. Nexus has a good chance to make it 4 in a row.

eSports Betting Pick: Nexus Gaming +126

Los Kogutos vs. BeyondPossible

  • When: Saturday, Nov. 5, 2022

Sometimes, it makes no sense to go against the chalk. We always want to look for overlays but if no team offers overlay odds, we shouldn’t push.

In this case, Los Kogutos has a significant edge even though Kogutos has lost 3 straight. Why? Underdog BeyondPossible has lost 4 straight.

Possible’s victory came against Insilio, which has also lost 4 straight. Back the favorite to cash.

eSports Betting Pick: Los Kogutos -250

League of Legends

Weibo Gaming vs. Edward Gaming

  • When: Friday, Nov. 4, 2022

These two Chinese League squads hope to get Season 2 off to a decent start. Weibo’s world ranking has climbed to 46 th while Edward’s world ranking has fallen to 55th.

Both teams have lost 2 with a win in their last 3. The difference is that Edward Gaming’s 2 losses happened versus FunPlus Phoenix and JD Gaming by 3-0 scores.

Edward beat Oh My God 3-1 in their last. Weibo lost their last but it was a decent 3-2 match versus top LoL squad JD. The chalk is a solid play.

eSports Betting Pick: Weibo Gaming -250

FunPlus Phoenix vs. JD Gaming

  • When: Friday, Nov. 4, 2022

JD versus FunPlus should be one of this weekend’s most competitive eSports matches. Both teams are rolling.

JD Gaming has won 3 straight. FunPlus Phoenix has won 2-of-3. JD’s victories include beating Edward 3-0 and Weibo 3-2.

In their 2 wins, FunPlus beat Rare Atom 3-2 and Edward 3-0. JD Gaming should have no trouble winning this but the odds on FunPlus make the dog more than playable. Backing the team with better odds makes sense.

eSports Betting Pick: FunPlus Phoenix +176

League of Legends – World Championships Knockout Stage

T1 vs. DRX

  • When: Saturday, Nov. 5, 2022

Two of the South Korean League’s top rivals throw down in the knockout stage at the League of Legends World Championships. T1 is the chalk because they’ve won 5 straight and have beaten top Chinese League squads JD Gaming and Royal Never Give Up in their last couple of matches.

DRX has won 4-of-5. The underdog’s last two wins came versus Edward Gaming and top European League team South Korean League rival Gen.G.

The dog can pull off the upset, but T1 is on fire. Beating RNGU and JD in the last 2 impresses big time. Laying the -376 on the top ranked LoL team in the world is the play to make.

eSports Betting Pick: T1 -376
