Top Matches of the Week

Team SoloMid vs. Echo Fox

  • When: February 24 at 6:00 PM
  • Records: 4-4 / 9-1
Team SoloMid took a pair of losses last weekend while Echo Fox recorded the biggest win of the North American Spring Split by beating Cloud9 to move into sole possession of first place.TSMlost to Cloud9 at 6:00 PM on Saturday and then fell to Clutch Gaming at 5:00 PM on Sunday. Echo Fox smacked Golden Guardians senseless on Saturday before recording its huge win over Cloud9 one day later.Team SoloMid is in real trouble in this matchup, seeing as how they’ve got three players with a KDA ratio of 3.3 or less while EchoFox’s lowest KDA ratio is Huni’s 4.2. Mid laner FeniX (9.1 KDA) and jungler Dardoch (8.3 KDA) have both been playing out of their minds all spring and shouldn’t be challenged in this matchup at all.eSports Betting Pick: Echo Fox

100 Thieves vs. Cloud9

  • When: February 24 at 8:00 PM
  • Records: 4-4 / 8-2
100 Thieves lost badly to Echo Fox on Saturday but rebounded nicely on Sunday to beat Counter Logic Gaming by getting the Baron Power Play steal in an absolute bloodbath battle. Cloud9 took out Team SoloMid on Saturday but then fell to top-ranked Echo Fox as jungler Joshua “Dardoch” Hartnett’s Sejuani gave first blood over to Huni, setting up a massive snowball effect.For this pairing, I’m going to urge you to take the easy win by backing Cloud9 to get the win over a 100 Thieves team they’re clearly much better than. jensen’s 9.1 KDA ratio, along with Smoothie’s 5.8 and Sneaky’s 5.7 will easily put them over the top against a 100 Thieves whose best KDA ratio comes from Cody Sun (4.1) and features a pair of players with KDA ratio of less than 3.0.Cloud9 may have gotten humbled by Echo Fox last weekend, but they’ll bounce back this weekend, starting with a win in this pairing.eSports Betting Pick: Cloud9

CLG vs. Golden Guardians

  • When: February 25 at 9:00 PM
  • Records: 4-6 / 2-8
Counter Logic Gaming lost to Team Liquid on Saturday and then suffered a crushing loss against 100 thieves on Sunday in a hard-fought showdown. CLG got a great effort from jungler Kim “Reignover” Yeu-jin’s Zac but couldn’t maintain their lead over Team Liquid and lost an even bigger heartbreaker the next day.The Golden Guardians should be one of your eSports Betting Picks of the week.Golden Guardians got smacked around by OpTic Gaming on Saturday but rebounded in a big way the next day to pull off the huge upset over Team Liquid and get their second win of the spring split. Guardians looked like they were headed for another humbling loss after a Liquid first blood, but they then recorded five of the next six kills and added in a Baron secure to gain full control over the game.While Golden Guardians don’t have much hope and have clearly been the worst team in the spring split of the, I’m going to urge you to back them to get their third straight Sunday upset against CLG in this matchup. I see no reason why Golden Guardians can’t get the upset, particularly since that what an upset is – a win no one predicted or ‘saw coming.’The fact of the matter is that Golden Guardians is only two victories behind CLG and is probably a bit better than their 2-8 record says they are right now. Desperation, combined with the fact that CLG isn’t ‘super elite’ and is the only team in this matchup with a player with a KDA ratio over 3.0, means Golden Guardians are offering some nice value as an upset pick in this one.eSports Betting Pick: Golden Guardians
