Fnatic -370 vs 100 Thieves +262
UK eSports squad Fnatic has gone 2-1 in their last 3. Fnatic’s only loss was to top Group D team Invictus Gaming. Fnatic already beat 100 Thieves Oct. 11. By the time this match takes place, it will only have been 6 days.
What can 100 Thieves do to turn the tables? Not much. 100 Thieves is 1-4 in their last 5 matches. They did beat G-Rex, though. So, they might have a shot later on in the day, but they’re up against it versus Fnatic in their first match.eSports Betting Pick: Fnatic -370
Fnatic -370 vs G-Rex +263
Fnatic already beat G-Rex on Oct. 13. Like 100 Thieves versus one of the top teams in Group D, G-Rex should have trouble keeping Fnatic from beating them again.
G-Rex is on a 3 match losing streak after beating both Kaos Latin Gamers and Bahcesehir SuperMassive. It’s hard to see the G-Rexers taking it to Fnatic on Wednesday. Fnatic wins their second match of the day.eSports Betting Pick: Fnatic -370
G-Rex -135 vs 100 Thieves +102
This should be one of the more competitive matches of the day. 100 Thieves did beat G-Rex 1:0 on Oct. 12. Odds makers must feel that the Thieves’ victory over G-Rex had nothing to do with 100 Thieves being more talented./p>
But, if they could beat G-Rex only 5 days before, why couldn’t they do it again? Invictus Gaming should dominate 100 Thieves, which means by the middle of that match they will have already turned their eyes to G-Rex to salvage the day.eSports Betting Pick: 100 Thieves +102
Invictus Gaming -256 vs Fnatic +194
The most important match in Group D on Wednesday happens in the final match when Fnatic battles Invictus Gaming. Invictus is one of the favorites to win the League of Legends World Championships.
Since June 11, Invictus has been unstoppable. They’ve gone 22-2 with both losses to Royal Never Give Up. Invictus should beat Fnatic on Oct. 17, but that’s not the way to go. Fnatic deserves a shot because like Invictus, they’ve played exceptionally well since the summer.
The odds are enticing. Fnatic’s the play to upset Invictus Gaming on Wednesday.
eSports Betting Pick: Fnatic +194
