Top eSports Betting Picks for the Week – November 27th Edition
4-seed in Group B, Big’s favored over 2-seeded Tyloo. The German squad has been in decent form, winning 3-of-4. All 3 victories came against Navi, though. NRG, Mousesports, Fnatic, and Optic have all taken down Big.
But although Tyloo has a shot, this is a major step up. The team from China has gone 4-2 in their last 6. They’ve beaten squads like AGO, pro100, and Renegades. Big’s just battled tougher opponents. That should show on Thursday.
eSports Betting Pick: Big
Team Liquid -625 vs Virtus Pro +358
Liquid’s had a heck of a time in their last 3, dropping matches to Ghost Gaming, North, and NRG. They’re a massive favorite over Virtus Pro, though, the top seed in Group A.
Favoritism makes sense because even though Liquid’s on a tough losing streak, Virtus Pro has been on a massive losing streak. They’ve dropped 6 in a row: North twice, Ninjas in Pyjamas twice, and Team LDLC twice.
Liquid doesn’t offer any odds, but they’re the play.
eSports Betting Pick: Team Liquid
HellRaisesrs -333 vs Gambit +227
Heading into SuperNova Malta, HellRaisers had won 2 in a row, both against G2 eSports in ESL Pro League Season 8. Overall, they’ve done well, winning 6-of-10.
Gambit’s lost 3 in a row and they’ve gone 3-7 in their last 10. Some of the losses were to North, Fragsters, and Vega Squadron. However, Gambit hasn’t played competitively since early October. If they’ve spent some time practicing, they might be fresh enough to pull off the upset.
eSports Betting Pick: Gambit
NRG -286 vs Kinguin +199
This might be the most competitive match at SuperNova Malta on Nov. 29. NRG has a 4-2 record in their last 6. The losses were to Cloud9 at the ESL Pro League Season 8 and Ninjas in Pyjamas at the World Championship Season Series 6.
Kinguin heads to this after going 1-2-1 at the Toyota Masters in Bangkok. The win was against MVP PK, the losses to 5Power Club and pro100, and the draw was against Heroic.
It’s tough to see Kinguin pulling off the upset. NRG can step it up after battling name teams like NIP and Cloud9. The chalk’s the play.
eSports Betting Pick: NRG
