ESB’s esports betting predictions for Friday focus on the final round of EPIC League Division 1, the semi-finals of IntoTheAlphaX Pro Circuit 4 and an Oceanic CS:GO clash between Chiefs Esports Club and Avant Gaming at DreamHack Masters Winter 2020.

EPIC League Division 1

TEAM LIQUID vs MUDGOLEMS DOTA 2 BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

Dota 2 Betting Odds: Liquid -153.85 at BetOnline | mudgolems +112 at BetOnline

After a shaky start to the tournament, Team Liquid have seemingly found their rhythm and now enter the penultimate day of the competition on a three-game winning streak. That run includes wins against Team Secret (2-0), Alliance (2-0) and OG (2-1).

Mudgolems had a decent start with 2-1 wins against Just Error and Team Nigma, but they have since cooled down and now enter the final week of the tournament on a four-game losing streak. They stole a map off Alliance (1-2) on Saturday, but that’s hardly worth celebrating.

We don’t see how mudgolems can stand up to Liquid in their current form. A 2-0 sweep is a realistic possibility, but the odds are high enough for us to settle for an outright bet on Liquid.

NATUS VINCERE vs VIKIN.GG DOTA 2 BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

Dota 2 Betting Odds: NaVi +114 at BetOnline | Vikin.gg -151.52 at BetOnline

Natus Vincere began their journey in the EPIC League with wins against Team Liquid, Just Error and Alliance, but they then went on to lose against OG, Team Nigma and Virtus.pro. Vikin.gg, meanwhile, have been very consistent throughout the tournament, winning all but one fixture.

The only issue we have with Vikin.gg is their tendency to drop maps. Regardless of that, they consistently outperform any team that stands in their way. The odds are not particularly high, but anything above $1.60 for the favourites is worth a bet.

ALLIANCE vs VIRTUS.PRO DOTA 2 BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

Dota 2 Betting Odds: Alliance +114 at BetOnline | VP -151.52 at BetOnline
When: December 4, 2020 at 20:00 CET

Alliance’s run through the EPIC League has been anything but praiseworthy. Nevertheless, they’re still the only team at the tournament who have bested Vikin.gg, so it’s fair to say Alliance are not to be written off entirely.

Virtus.pro enter this match with a very solid 5-2 record, but we were not too impressed with their recent performances against Vikin.gg (1-2), Team Liquid (1-2) and Natus Vincere (2-1).

Normally, we would side with Virtus.pro for this one, but Alliance look a bit overpriced. The Swedish side stole a map off Team Secret on Sunday, which is something only a handful of teams have managed to do this season. If that is any indication of their strength, we have no issues taking a shot on the outsiders.

IntoTheAlphaX Pro Circuit 4

ROGUE vs CURE SCII BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

SCII Betting Odds: Rogue -243.9 at BetOnline | Cure +172 at BetOnline
When: December 4, 2020 at 22:00 KST
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/intotheclancom)


Lee “Rogue” Byeong Yeol and Kim “Cure” Doh Wook will clash in the IntoTheAlphaX Pro Circuit 4 semi-finals this Friday, which will mark their second meeting of the tournament. They previously met during the first group stage, where Rogue claimed a convincing 2-0 win that marked his fourth head-to-head victory since February.

After his commanding run through the first stage, Rogue went on to dominate in the second group stage, where he finished ahead of Shin “RagnaroK” Hee Bum, Lee Bunny Jae-seon and Park “Dark” Ryung-woo. Cure, on the other hand, had to settle for a runner-up finish in his group behind Cho “Trap” Sung Ho.

Even though Rogue is clearly in better shape, there is some value in siding with Cure to keep this match close. He forced Rogue to five maps (2-3) on Tuesday and not long ago swept Cho “Dream” Joong Hyuk, which leads us to believe he has more to offer than what the latest StarCraft II betting odds suggest.

DreamHack Masters Winter 2020: Oceania

CHIEFS ESC vs AVANT GAMING CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: Chiefs +239 at BetOnline | Avant -357.14 at BetOnline
When: December 4, 2020 at 15:30 AEDT
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/dreamhackcs)


After a humiliating 0-2 loss against Renegades in the upper bracket, Chiefs Esports Club will now seek redemption against Avant Gaming, who lost their opening match of the tournament against ORDER (1-2).

Avant enter this match as heavy favourites over Chiefs, which is fair considering they have beaten their rival team in nine out of 11 maps played since June.

While these Oceanic CS:GO bouts are usually 50/50, there is nothing that would lead us to believe Chiefs can cause an upset here. The -102.04 on Avant to win 2-0 is a good price.
