FLASHPOINT Season 2

OG vs GEN.G CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: OG -232.56 at BetOnline | Gen.G +188 at BetOnline
When: November 20, 2020 at 14:00 CET
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/flashpoint)

Despite Gen.G’s convincing win against Aleksi “Aleksib” Virolainen and co. last Thursday, they enter the rematch as heavy underdogs. OG’s performance in their first match was an aberration, and they should put up much more resistance this time out.

OG are the stronger team overall and should claim a revenge win, but we wouldn’t count on a clean sweep. Expect Gen.G to steal at least one map and force the series to three.

Intel Extreme Masters XV Beijing Online: Europe

BIG vs COMPLEXITY CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: BIG +106 at BetOnline | Complexity -126.58 at BetOnline
When: November 20, 2020 at 15:00 CET
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/esl_csgo)

We can’t quite agree with the esports betting odds offered on this match, since there is no reason for Complexity to be priced as the favourites. BIG have played 10 maps against Complexity since May and won seven, including all of the last six and a 2-0 sweep three weeks ago.

Even though BIG have not produced any outstanding results this month, neither have Complexity. While Jamie “keita” Hall’s team defeated Natus Vincere (2-1) and Fnatic (2-0), we wouldn’t rank those wins too highly since both teams are in bad shape.

Intel Extreme Masters XV Beijing Online: Oceania

AVANT GAMING vs RENEGADES CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: Avant +332 at BetOnline | Renegades -526.32 at BetOnline
When: November 20, 2020 at 17:30 AEDT
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/esl_csgo)

Since the esports scene transitioned to online play, most Counter-Strike: Global Offensive clashes in the Oceania region have became complete coin-flips. However, we don’t feel like this match will follow that rule. That is not necessarily because Avant Gaming are a bad team, but rather because Renegades are much stronger than any other team in the region.

Renegades enter this match with a phenomenal 48-6 record in 2020 and a 16-game winning streak that includes a 3-0 head-to-head record and 7-1 map differential against Avant. We should still give Avant some praise for their 8-2 run across the last month, but they’re simply not at the level of Renegades.

EPIC League Division 1

TEAM SECRET vs TEAM LIQUID DOTA 2 BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

Dota 2 Betting Odds: Secret +100 at BetOnline | Liquid -138.89 at BetOnline
When: November 20, 2020 at 20:00 CET
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/team/epicenter)

Team Secret have split their two games this tournament with a narrow win against mudgolems (2-1) and a loss against Vikin.gg (0-2). Team Liquid have not impressed either, losing to Natus Vincere (1-2), Vikin.gg (1-2) and Just Error (0-2).

Secret and Liquid are both in questionable form, which suggests this game can go either way. While Secret seem like the most likely victors given they have won eight out of 11 meetings with Liquid this year, Jacky “Stewie2k” Yip and co. completed a clean sweep in their most recent clash at ESL One Germany. On that basis, we like the outsiders to pinch a map at the very least.

Team Liquid +1.5 maps

National Electronic Sports Tournament 2020

FUNPLUS PHOENIX vs ROYAL NEVER GIVE UP LoL BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

LoL Betting Odds: FPX +100 at BetOnline | RNG -138.89 at BetOnline
When: November 20, 2020 at 10:30 CST
Watch Live: Huya (https://www.huya.com/nest2020)

Both teams field a mix of main roster and academy players, which will result in a couple of mismatches in the mid lane and jungle. Royal Never Give Up enter this match with Li “XLB” Xiao-Long and Li “Xiaohu” Yuan-Hao, who should have a fairly easy time against FunPlus Phoenix’s academy jungler Liao “Youxin” Zhi-Hui and academy mid laner Ye “Insulator” Zhi-Wei.

Even though FPX’s academy players have performed well so far, they will struggle to compete with RNG’s starters. Furthermore, the current meta prefers a strong mid-jungle synergy over anything else, so it’s very difficult to side against the favourites.
