Cloud9 vs. Movistar Raiders

  • When: Friday, Sept. 23, 2022

Favored Cloud9 hasn’t played since early July. The last time they played, the chalk in this lost 2 straight, both matches by 2-0 scores, to Astralis and Team Liquid. Movistar is on a 4-match losing streak. When we go to the head-to-head, Cloud9 owns Movistar with a 2-0 record. The chalk hasn’t played in over two months, making the dog in this playable.

eSports Betting Pick: Movistar Raiders +221

Team Liquid vs. Furia

  • When: Friday, Sept. 23, 2022

Team Liquid is on fire. The chalk has won 4-of-5. Victories include back-to-back wins versus Ninjas in Pyjamas and Heroic in Liquid’s last 2 matches. Furia has won 2-of-5. Furia hasn’t played since July 10. One of the losses in their last 5 happened in a match against Liquid. Furia does have a 12 to 6 edge in the head-to-head. The underdog is worth backing.

eSports Betting Pick: Furia +121

Movistar Raiders vs. Evil Geniuses

  • When: Saturday, Sept. 24, 2022

On Saturday, Movistar takes on Evil Geniuses the chalk. Movistar is the favorite, but Evil Geniuses has won 4 straight. The reason the EGs aren’t getting as much love from oddsmakers is because the 4 wins were against worst teams than the Raiders have faced. Quality of opponent means a lot in eSports.

This is the first time these two are throwing down against each other. Movistar comes from a better league. So the chalk is the play.

eSports Betting Pick: Movistar Raiders -1641

Dota 2

X3 vs. EZ Katka

  • When: Saturday, Sept. 24, 2022

Favored X3 heads into this on a 2-match winning streak. In a couple of contests on Sep. 20, the favored squad prevailed 2-0 over Yet Another Team and against HF. EZ Katka lost to Cybercats on Sep. 10. Then on Sep. 18, EZ bounced back with a 2-1 win against Team Unique. In the lone head-to-head, X3 beat EZ. The underdog has a shot, but the chalk is playing too well to lose.

eSports Betting Pick: X3 -192


Hangzhou Spark vs. Philadelphia Fusion

  • When: Sunday, Sept. 25, 2022

Expect oddsmakers to set a line favoring Fusion. Philadelphia beat Hangzhou in the last head-to- head. The match happened back on Sep. 4. So a ton of time hasn’t passed since the last time these two faced off. But although Fusion should be the chalk, they may not be the best play. Philadelphia has lost 2 of their last 3. Spark has a 2-7 record versus Fusion. They can make 3-7 on Sunday.

eSports Betting Pick: Hangzhou Spark

Paris Eternal vs. Dallas Fuel

  • When: Sunday, Sept. 25, 2022

Paris has lost 5 straight. Dallas has won 5 straight. One of Fuel’s victories was a smashing 4-0 beating Dallas handed the San Francisco Shock on Sep. 11. But although Fuel should be the favorite and they should probably win this match, Paris owns the head-to-head. Eternal is 4-1 versus Dallas in 5 matches. Paris is worth a look to break the losing streak.

eSports Betting Pick: Paris Eternal
