League of Legends

Saigon Buffalo vs. Isurus

  • When: Friday, Sept. 30, 2022

Underdog Isurus has played well in recent matches. Heading into the World Championships, Isurus has won 2 straight and 3 of their last 5. Saigon Buffalo has won 3-of-5. The Buffalos doesn’t head into this playing their best. On Sep. 4, Gam Esports exacted revenge over Saigon, but the Vietnamese LOL squad plays in a much tougher league than Isurus. Saigon gets the nod.

eSports Betting Pick: Saigon Buffalo -270

Detonation FM vs. Chiefs

  • When: Friday, Sept. 30, 2022

Both these teams are scorching. Chiefs and Detonation FM have won their last 5 matches. Detonation beat Sengoku Gaming 3-1 and 3-0 in their last couple of matches. In their last 2, Chiefs blasted Order 3-0 and then put a 3-1 beating onto Pentanet.GG.

Both squads are playing so well it’s difficult to find the winner. If we look further in their past performances, Chiefs is on a 23 win streak. But Deetonation plays in a much tougher league, Japan, compared to Chiefs’ league, Australia. The Japanese league squad is the play.

eSports Betting Pick: Detonation FM -164

Beyond Gaming vs. Detonation FM

  • When: Saturday, Oct. 1, 2022

On Saturday, Detonation FM takes on Beyond Gaming. A slight dog in this match, Detonation battles one of Taiwan’s top LoL units. Beyond has won 3-of-5. The 2 losses in Beyond’s last 5 happened against the same team, CTBC Flying Oyster. Oddsmakers must believe Beyond bounces back after their last loss to the Flying Oysters. But Detonation is hot. The dog takes this.

eSports Betting Pick: Detonation FM +106

Evil Geniuses vs. Chiefs

  • When: Saturday, Oct. 1, 2022

The Evil Geniuses have won 3-of-5. No doubt, Chiefs is playing well enough to make a run at the Geniuses. But we can use the same logic we used to play against the Chiefs in their Friday match versus Detonation FM to decide who to back in this. The Geniuses play in one of the top LoL leagues in the world. The evil ones win.

eSports Betting Pick: Evil Geniuses -333

DRX vs. Mad Lions

  • When: Sunday, Oct. 2, 2022

Two of the best League of Legends squads at the World Championships throw down when DRX takes on Mad Lions. Heading into the rest of the week and weekend, the Lions aren’t in their best form. Mad has lost 2 straight in matches versus Rogue and Fnatic.

DRX beat KT Rolster and Liiv Sandbox in their last 2 matches before the World Championships. DRX plays in the top South Korean league. Their class should carry them to a win on Sunday.

eSports Betting Pick: DRX -256

Dota 2

Ivy vs. Winter Bear

  • When: Sunday, Oct. 2, 2022

Ivy’s battle with Winter Bear is the third of 4 matches. The reason we point out Ivy’s contest versus Winter is because the chalk in this is a massive favorite. No doubt, Ivy plays the tougher opponents. But Winter and Ivy are both on 5-match losing streaks. So by the time this one tips, Ivy may be done with the day. 2 straight losses could have a drastic effect on how they play. At the odds, the Bear is worth backing.

eSports Betting Pick: Winter Bear +196
