Top eSports Betting Picks for the Week – January 6th Edition
Dota 2: China Professional League
Tuesday, Jan. 7th
- Vici vs Team Aster
China Professional League Dota 2 Season 1 continues with Vici taking on Team Aster on Tuesday. Aster has no shot to keep this close versus one of the top teams in Dota 2. Vici earned $1,201,550 at The International in August. They finished first at the One Esports Dota 2 World Pro Invitational Singapore. Aster finished in 9th-10th place at the World Pro Invitational Singapore. The difference in prize money? Aster made $5,000. Vici made $200,000. Vici wins this.
eSports Betting Pick: Vici
Wednesday, Jan. 8th
- Keen Gaming vs Team Aster
Aster has a better chance against Keen Gaming on Wednesday. It’s not much of a better chance, though. Keen landed in the 13th -16th category at The International. That was good for $514,951. Aster should lose again on Wednesday.</p.
eSports Betting Pick: Keen Gaming
Dota 2: WePlay! Bukovel Minor 2020
Thursday, Jan. 9th
- Ninjas in Pyjamas vs Geek Fam
The WePlay! Bukovel Minor kicks off on Thursday with the Ninjas versus the Geeks. Ninjas in Pyjamas has a win and 4 losses in their last 5. Geek Fam is on a 2-match losing streak. The Geeks had won 3 in a row. That was versus suspect competition. Give the Ninjas a shot to take this even though they’re 3-7 straight up in their last 10.
eSports Betting Pick: Ninjas in Pyjamas
- Team Spirit vs Royal Never Give Up
Spirit dropped their last 10 matches. Most losses happened at The International. But they couldn’t hang with EHome, Spirit, or HellRaisers. Royal Never Give Up lost to Aster and Liquid in their last couple. Before the losses, they beat Virtus.Pro and Alliance. They drew with Infamous. Royal Never Give Up gets the nod.
eSports Betting Pick: Royal Never Give Up
- Fighting Pandas vs Nigma
Fighting Pandas has 3 wins in their last 7 matches. Nigma has won 8 in a row. The wins happened against bad competition for sure. But, Nigma is on a roll while Fighting Pandas haven’t played well. Back Nigma.
eSports Betting Pick: Nigma
- Gambit vs Furia
Evil Geniuses and Vici thumped Gambit at the One Esports Dota 2 World Pro Invitational Singapore. Furia hasn’t hung in minor tournaments since The International, though. Furia losses to INF twice and NoPing once makes Gambit the play in this.
eSports Betting Pick: Gambit
