Overwatch League 2019 Playoffs – Week 3
Thursday, Sep. 12
- Atlanta Reign / Hangzhou Spark
Atlanta is 9-1 SU in their last 10. They head into this match versus Hanzhou after losing 2-4 to New York Excelsior. The Reign can play well enough to turn their form around here. They beat Hangzhou 3-1 back on July 27. But, Hangzhou barely lost to the L.A. Gladiators, 3-4, on Sep. 5. They beat Seoul Dynasty in their last match. That makes Hangzhou Spark the pick to take this.
eSports Betting Pick: Hangzhou Spark
- A. Gladiators / San Francisco Shock
Friday, Sep. 13
- New York Excelsior / Vancouver Titans
The Vancouver Titans made it 3 in a row with a win over the L.A. Gladiators. Vancouver beat Seoul Dynasty on Sep. 5. On August 25, they beat New York Excelsior 3-2. Vancouver can repeat that with a win over Excelsior again. Up until the 2 playoff victories, New York Excelsior had gone 3-5 SU in their last 8. Go with the Titans.
eSports Betting Pick: Vancouver Titans
CS:GO – Moscow Blast Pro Series
Friday, Sep. 13
- Ence / Vitality
Ence lost their last match versus Renegades at the StarLadder Berlin Playoffs. Before that, Ence had been on a 3-match winning streak, including beating MIBR 1-0 on August 29. On August 30, they beat Vitality 2-0. Vitality will give it all they’ve got, but Ence has their number. They’ll beat their rivals on Friday.
eSports Betting Pick: Ence
- Natus Vincere / MIBR
Navi dominated MIBR 2-0 at the StarLadder Berlin on August 31. MIBR might play Natus Vincere tougher, but Navi’s still the play. They had won 3-of-5 in Berlin before losing to NRG in the playoffs and should be at the top of their game on Sep. 13.
eSports Betting Pick: Natus Vincere
- Ninjas In Pyjamas / MIBR
If MIBR loses to Navi, they should bounce back with a big victory over Ninjas in Pyjamas. NIP is on a bad losing streak. The Ninjas have dropped 5 straight and 8-of-10. They won’t step it up versus a quality squad like MIBR.
eSports Betting Pick: MIBR
