Los Angeles Gladiators vs. Seoul Dynasty

The Gladiators got past New York 3-2 in a difficult showdown on Thursday and closed out their Overwatch League Week 4 matchups with another 3-2 win over London, although they – and everyone else – was expecting a much easier time against the Spitfire. Seoul suffered a 3-1 loss to Boston on Wednesday but then put up a good effort in their narrow 3-2 loss to Philly on Friday.

There is absolutely no thinking needed for this unfair matchup as Los Angeles will roll all over Seoul in this one. The Gladiators have put together a stellar 21-1-10 map record this stage while Seoul’s 15-0-21 mark doesn’t come close to suggesting they’ll do anything other than bow out with a sweep.

eSports Betting Pick: L.A. Gladiators 3 Seoul 0

Dallas Fuel vs. Los Angeles Valiant

First, the Dallas Fuel took a 3-1 loss on the chin against Houston last Wednesday to kick off their week 4 campaign and then they got blasted in their humbling 4-0 shutout loss against Florida on Saturday.

The L.A. Valiant should be one of your eSports Betting picks of the week.

Los Angeles had a surprisingly tough time dispatching London in their 2-1 win on Thursday, but then beat the hell out of Houston 4-0 on Saturday.

This is another Week 5 matchup that requires absolutely no thinking from Overwatch bettors as the unbeaten Valiant will cruise to victory in this one. L.A. has gone 24-2-9 in maps this stage while Dallas is a far more modest 18-1-13.

eSports Betting Pick: L.A. Valiant 3-1
