Top eSports Betting Picks for the Week – April 8th Edition

Counter-Strike – Blast Pro Series Miami 2019

Friday, April 12

  • MIBR vs NaVi

Brazilian squad MIBR is in fourteenth place at the StarLadder – i-League Season 7 in China. They’ve taken on some of the same squads in that league that they’ll find at the Blast Pro Series in Miami starting this Friday. But, no matter in what league MIBR plays, they figure to falter. They lost all 5 of their matches at the Blast Pro Series – Sau Paulo.

Natus Vincere, or NaVi, has been on fire. They’ve won 7 straight, including beating Fnatic 3-0 on April 7. NaVi should make quick work of MIBR on Friday.

eSports Betting Pick: NaVi

  • Astralis vs Cloud9

Astralis hasn’t played competitively since the Blast Pro Series – Sao Paulo that ended on March 23. They dominated that tournament, winning all 5 of their matches before beating Liquid 2:1 in the playoffs. Astralis is scorching right now.

They’ve won their last 28 Counter-Strike matches in a row. They haven’t lost since dropping a match to MIBR 1:2 on Nov. 24 in the Counter-Strike Championships. It almost doesn’t matter what Cloud9 does to prepare for this. In their first match of the day versus Astralis, Cloud9 should fail.

eSports Betting Pick: Astralis

  • Liquid vs FaZe

Team Liquid last battled in the Blast Pro Series – Sau Paulo. They went 3-1-1, with the draw happening against ENCE and the loss happening to Astralis. Liquid played well enough to make it to the Blast Pro Series – Sau Paulo Playoffs. There, they lost 1:2 again to Astralis.

FaZe Clan started out the StarLadder – i-League well this year. They won their first two matches. But, then they failed when losing 3 in a row. Team Liquid also beat them in the Blast Pro Series – Sau Paulo. It’s hard to see FaZe beating Liquid on April 12.

eSports Betting Pick: Liquid

  • Cloud9 vs Liquid

Cloud9 versus Liquid should be a great match on Friday. Cloud9 hasn’t battled since Intel Extreme Masters – Katowice in February. They weren’t very good in that tournament, either, going 2-0-3 with the 3 losses to: Astralis, Vitality, and FaZe.

But, although Cloud9 will play better, Liquid should come out ahead in this match. Liquid showed up big time in Sau Paulo. If not for Astralis, they might have won the tournament. Cloud9 won’t stand in their way on Friday.

eSports Betting Pick: Liquid
