Top eSports Betting Picks for the Week – October 9th Edition

League of Legends

Wednesday, Oct. 10 Matches

  • Mad Team +300 vs Edward Gaming -400
  • Phong Vu Buffalo +382 vs Flash Wolves -482
  • G2 Esports +265 vs Afreeca Freecs -345
  • Cloud9 +304 vs Royal Never Give Up -404
  • Team Vitality +340 vs Gen.G -440

G2 Esports +265 vs Afreeca Freecs -345


G2 Esports has been on a tear, winning their last 4:  1:0 over Ascension Gaming, 1:0 over Bahcesehir SuperMassive, and 1:0 over Ascension Gaming again. They beat Infinity eSports 3:1 for their fourth straight win.

The match took place on 10/6, which means G2 Esports might have enough to beat favored Afreeca Freecs in this. Afreeca Freecs hasn’t battled in League of Legends since a 2:3 loss to Griffin in Champions Korea back in August.

Yes, they played against some tough competition in Champions Korea. But, G2 Esports offers great value at +265.
eSports Betting Pick: G2 Esports

Cloud9 +304 vs Royal Never Give Up -404


Cloud9 rides a 6-match winning streak into their battle versus Royal Never Give Up. Why such a disparity in odds if Cloud9’s been on fire? Chinese team Royal Never Give Up has won 5 in a row. Royal Never Give Up has won their 5 matches against much better teams than what Cloud 9 has faced.

During their streak, Cloud9 beat KaBum! e-Sports twice, DetonatioN FocusMe twice and Gambit eSports once. That doesn’t compare to beating Invictus Gaming and Rogue Warriors like what Royal Never Give Up did.

Tough not to go chalky in this matchup.
eSports Betting Pick: Royal Never Give Up

Team Vitality +340 vs Gen.G -440


Only Shalke 04 has beaten Team Vitality in Vitality’s last 10 matches. Shalke 04 did it twice. Other than Shalke, Vitality’s taken it to all their opponents including beating G2 Esports 1:0 this past August.

Although Vitality’s played well, it’s hard to back them against a force like Gen.G, though. In champions Korea, Gen.G beat MVP, SK Telecom 1, Griffin, and KingZone Dragon X. Only Afreeca Freecs beat Gen.G.

Gen.G. should handle Team Vitality on Wednesday.

eSports Betting Pick: Gen.G
