eSports | Top Events This Weekend to Bet On
Counter-Strike: ESL One – Cologne | Saturday, August 22
- Furia / Gen.G Esports
On August 18, Furia dropped a match 0-2 against Chaos. That broke a four game Furia winning streak. No worries. Furia has beaten Gen.G in the last couple of head-to-head contests. Expect Furia to get back on the winning track.
Counter-Strike Free Pick: Furia
League of Legends: Champions Korea | Saturday, August 22
- Afreeca Freecs / Gen.G
The Freecs are 3-1 in their last 4. They’ve played well, beating teams like Sandbox and KT Rolster. Gen.G has won 4-of-5, though. They also beat Afreeca Freecs 2-0 in the last battle. Go with Gen.G.
LoL Free Pick: Gen.G
- KT Rolster / Damwon
The Rolsters are a decent team. But, they’re just 4-6 SU in their last 10. Damwon has won 9 straight. They should make it 10 straight on Saturday.
LoL Free Pick: Damwon
League of Legends: LoL Pro League – China | Saturday, August 22
- Top eSports / Suning
Although Top eSports is 3-1 straight up in their last 4, Suning looks like the team to beat. Suning has won 9-of-10. Ah, but who did Suning fall against? Yep. Top eSports on July 30. Go with Top.
LoL Free Pick: Top eSports
Overwatch: Overwatch League | Saturday, August 22
- Hangzhou Spark / Seoul Dynasty
Hangzhou Spark has won 3-of-4. Seoul Dynasty has won 3 in a row. In the last head-to-head, Spark beat Dynasty. But, Hangzhou won by just a single game, 3-2. Dynasty can turn the tables on Spark.
Overwatch Free Pick: Seoul Dynasty

Things aren’t going well for Spitfire. They’ve lost 9-of-10. London is on an 8-game losing streak. Excelsior has just a single win in their last 4, though. But New York Excelsior has won 7 straight head-to-head matches. Don’t go against NYE.

League of Legends: LoL Pro League – China | Sunday, August 23
- JD Gaming / LGD Gaming
This projects as one of the top eSports battles over the weekend. JD has gone 9-1 SU in their last 10. LGD is 7-3 in their last 10. JD has won the last two head-to-head matches, which gives them an edge. But, eventually, JD will suffer a loss. Back LGD to be the one that breaks JD’s winning streak.

- San Francisco Shock / Atlanta Reign
SF has won 8-of-10 while the ATL has lost 3 in a row. It’s hard to see Atlanta Reign shocking San Francisco.
