ESL Pro League Season 12 Europe

NATUS VINCERE vs AGO CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: NaVi -357.14 at BetOnline | AGO +247 at BetOnline
CS:GO Betting Lines: NaVi -1.5 at -113.64 | AGO +1.5 at -117.65

Natus Vincere managed a solid 2-1 record in the opening week of the ESL Pro League, yet Kirill “Boombl4” Mikhailov and co. left a lot to be desired with their inconsistency and some scrappy individual performances.

AGO lost two fo their first three games, although they took down the no.3 team in the world in Heroic (2-1) and held their own against BIG on Vertigo (14-16) – both praiseworthy accomplishments for a team of this calibre.

Even though AGO are by no means a top-tier team, they have shown enough to suggest they can take one map off NaVi, who are looking progressively worse.

BIG vs HEROIC CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: BIG -357.14 at BetOnline | Heroic +247 at BetOnline
CS:GO Betting Lines: BIG -1.5 at +172 | Heroic +1.5 at -238.1

After winning ESL One Cologne 2020 Online Europe, Heroic coach Nicolai “HUNDEN” Petersen was suspended for exploiting the coach spectator bug, which has left the Danish squad in shambles. They have started to show cracks and lost both of their opening fixtures in the ESL Pro League, including a 1-2 defeat to AGO.

BIG, while not nearly as good as they were in July when they took the top spot in CS:GO global rankings, looked fairly solid last week with 2-0 wins against AGO and OG. If they can continue playing at the pace they have shown, a clean sweep of Heroic is a real possibility.

G2 ESPORTS vs ENCE CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: G2 -135.14 at BetOnline | ENCE +101 at BetOnline
CS:GO Betting Lines: G2 -1.5 at +196 | ENCE +1.5 at -270.27
When: September 10, 2020 at 21:00 CEST
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/esl_csgo)


This match should be much closer than the odds at most CS:GO betting sites suggest. G2 Esports often underperform against weaker sides these days, as they lack the cohesion they once had.

ENCE are rarely regarded as one of the top CS:GO esports teams, but their results in the opening week of the ESL Pro League are nothing to sneeze at. Much of their success comes down to Aleksi “allu” Jalli, who has started to show glimpses of his old form.

If allu keeps performing and ENCE play like they did in the first week, the outsiders could be a real threat.

ESL Pro League Season 12 North America

100 THIEVES vs CHAOS ESPORTS CLUB CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: 100T -200 at BetOnline | Chaos +147 at BetOnline
CS:GO Betting Lines: 100T -1.5 at +147 | Chaos +1.5 at -200
When: September 10, 2020 at 12:00 PDT
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/esl_csgo)


Despite the fairly short odds offered on 100 Thieves, they are still a bit too high considering they are facing a team that continues to struggle with roster stability. Not only have Chaos lost Logan “Voltage” Long and Cameron “cam” Kern, but they also parted ways with in-game leader Joshua “steel” Nissan, who was arguably the only reason why the team saw any sort of success in their recent endeavours.

Chaos defeated 100 Thieves 2-1 just over two weeks ago, but we don’t believe they will come even close to repeating that feat this time out. Without steel, Chaos will crumble on tactical maps and could end up with doughnuts.

LDLC OL vs SCHALKE 04 EVOLUTION LOL BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

LoL Betting Odds: LDLC +111 at BetOnline | S04E -149.25 at BetOnline
When: September 10, 2020 at 18:00 CEST

LDLC and Schalke 04 Evolution met at the end of August, when S04E claimed a comfortable win with 18-4 in kills and over 8k gold lead. While the match was relatively close for the first 20 minutes, Schalke outclassed their French opponents without any real difficulties.

Not a lot has changed since then. While LDLC managed to defeat K1CK Neosurf last Thursday, that alone is not enough for us to believe they are better prepared for the Prime League Pro Division 2020 Summer runners-up.

SAMSUNG MORNING STARS vs K1CK NEOSURF LOL BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

LoL Betting Odds: SMS +111 at BetOnline | K1CK -149.25 at BetOnline
When: September 10, 2020 at 19:00 CEST
Watch Live: Lolesports, Twitch


K1CK Neosurf defeated Samsung Morning Stars at the end of August and will now look to repeat their success this Thursday. While the odds suggest K1CK should come out ahead once more, we can’t be too optimistic about the Polish side after their round four loss to LDLC.

SMS still have a lot to prove, but they held on well in their recent clash with Schalke 04 Evolution, which suggests the Italian side are capable of avenging their loss.

LDLC OL vs SAMSUNG MORNING STARS LOL BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

LoL Betting Odds: LDLC -344.83 at BetOnline | SMS +237 at BetOnline
When: September 10, 2020 at 20:00 CEST
Watch Live: Lolesports, Twitch


The surprisingly high odds on Samsung Morning Stars make little sense to us. While there is no going around the fact that SMS lost two of their opening three games, they also defeated LDLC in one of the most one-sided fixtures of the tournament so far.

Some may argue SMS’s win over LDLC was a fluke – and perhaps it was – but the French side have not shown enough for us to believe they should be priced at $1.29. We will side with the underdogs for a chance at a generous payout.

K1CK NEOSURF vs SCHALKE 04 EVOLUTION LOL BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

LoL Betting Odds: K1CK +120 at BetOnline | S04E -163.93 at BetOnline
When: September 10, 2020 at 21:00 CEST
Watch Live: Lolesports, Twitch


K1CK Neosurf can be fairly inconsistent, which especially holds true for ADC Łukasz “Puki Style” Zygmunciak. He was impressive in K1CK’s recent win over Schalke, but he has struggled to make an impact since.

Even if Puki Style performs up to par, a lot will have to go wrong for Schalke 04 Evolution to lose. The Germans hold one of the most stacked rosters at the EU Masters – including four players with League of Legends European Championship (LEC) experience – and we don’t feel comfortable betting against that kind of quality.

SCHALKE 04 EVOLUTION vs SAMSUNG MORNING STARS LOL BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

LoL Betting Odds: S04E -416.67 at BetOnline | SMS +274 at BetOnline
When: September 10, 2020 at 22:00 CEST
Watch Live: Lolesports, Twitch


This match has a stomp written all over it. Even though Schalke 04 Evolution looked shaky against SMS last time out, that was in most part due to Nihat “Innaxe” Aliev having an off day. We don’t expect to happen again with a playoffs ticket on the line.

K1CK NEOSURF vs LDLC OL LOL BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

LoL Betting Odds: K1CK +101 at BetOnline | LDLC -136.99 at BetOnline
When: September 10, 2020 at 23:00 CEST
Watch Live: Lolesports, Twitch


This is perhaps the most unpredictable fixture of the day, since it will depend on how these two teams perform in the matches leading to this one. For K1CK, it will be Puki Style’s form that will dictate their success, whereas LDLC will need to find some traction in the two preceding games.

LDLC came out ahead last time, so we don’t have a problem with the odds. Since there is not a lot to set these two teams apart, however, it’s better to side with the underdogs.
