Top eSports Betting Picks of the Week (September 5th, 2022)

Overwatch

Philadelphia Fusion vs. Seoul Dynasty

  • When: Friday, Sept. 9, 2022

Philadelphia had lost 4 straight before beating Hangzhou Spark 3-1 in their last. One of the losses was to Seoul via a 2-3 score on September 3. Fusion has most of this week to figure out how to turn the tables on the Dynasty. Seoul is hot having won 5 straight. But in the head-to-head, the favored squad only has a 6-to-4 edge in the last 10. Philly can pull off the upset win.

eSports Betting Pick: Philadelphia Fusion +222

Counter Strike CS:GO

BIG vs. MiBR

  • When: Friday, Sept. 9, 2022

MiBR is on a hot streak. The underdog in this has won 4-of-5. BIG has a single victory in their last 4. But although it’s easy to write off the chalk, MiBR hasn’t beaten great teams. BIG has played the much tougher competition. It makes sense to go with MiBR if you want to take a shot. But BIG should win this.

eSports Betting Pick: BIG -323

FaZe Clan vs. Outsiders

  • When: Friday, Sept. 9, 2022

Outsiders has 2 wins and 3 losses in their last 5. The underdog in this match is on a 2 contest losing streak. On Friday, Outsiders takes on a talented squad in FaZe Clan. FaZe has won 10-of-12. After dropping 2 straight matches versus Heroic and OG, FaZe picked it up when beating Astralis 2-1 in their last. The chalk takes this.

eSports Betting Pick: FaZe Clan -238

League of Legends

1907 Fenerbahce vs. Istanbul Wildcats

  • When: Saturday, Sep. 10, 2022

Rivals Fenerbahce and Istanbul throw down in a huge LoL Turkish League clash. Underdog Fenerbahce has won 5 straight. Like the dog in this, Istanbul Wildcats has also won 5 straight. But although both teams are in similar form, when it comes to the head-to-head, the Wildcats rule. Istanbul has won 11-of-14. Still, the odds make the Wildcats an underlay while their rival is an overlay.

eSports Betting Pick: 1907 Fenerbahce +196

100 Thieves vs. Evil Geniuses

  • When: Saturday, Sep. 10, 2022

The Thieves head into this off a loss. On September 3, Cloud9 beat 100 Thieves 3 games to 1. Before losing to Cloud9, 100 Thieves had won 3 straight. Evil Geniuses have won 4-of-5. Like 100 Thieves, the Geniuses’ last loss happened versus Cloud9. This match can go either way. As long as Evil Geniuses offers better odds, they’re the pick.

eSports Betting Pick: Evil Geniuses -111

Dota 2

Xerxia Esports vs. TNC

  • When: Saturday, Sep. 10, 2022

Both Xerxia and TNC hail from the Philippines. But only one of the teams deserves backing. Xerxia has lost 4 straight matches. 1 of the losses happened in a contest against TNC. The chalk is on a 3 match winning streak and has won 4-of-5. TNC gets it done.

eSports Betting Pick: TNC -208
