This Friday we turn our attention to two CS:GO esports tournaments in LOOT.BET/CS Season 8 and Perfect World Asia League Fall 2020, as well as two Group B fixtures at the League of Legends World Championship.

LOOT.BET/CS Season 8

MOVISTAR RIDERS vs HERETICS CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: Movistar +134 at BetOnline | Heretics -181.82 at BetOnline
When: October 9, 2020 at 12:50 CEST
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/uccleague2)

Movistar Riders and Heretics will lock horns this Friday for the first time since April, when Heretics swept the Spanish squad 2-0 in the semi-finals of the Cyber.Bet Cup. Heretics have not made any roster changes since, while Movistar Riders have reinforced their squad with Sebastian “larsen” Larsen and Kristjan “shokz” Jakobson.

Movistar Riders have won 52.4% of their games across the last three months, whereas Heretics have managed a slightly better 60% win rate, albeit against weaker sides.

Heretics look the most likely victors, but it’s worth taking a shot with the underdogs at +134. Movistar Riders have won five of their last six clashes, so there is a good chance we could see an upset.

C0NTACT GAMING vs FATE CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: c0ntact -333.33 at BetOnline | FATE +230 at BetOnline
When: October 9, 2020 at 12:50 CEST
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/uccleague2)

On Monday, c0ntact Gaming ended their run through Intel Extreme Masters XV Beijing Online in 17th-32nd place. While that was far below expectations, even those uninspiring achievements are far more impressive than what FATE have shown recently.

FATE have won five games out of their last 10, which seems solid enough, but we can’t ignore their losses to Mustang Crew (12-16), SJ Gaming (0-2) and Wisla Krakow (6-16). C0ntact, meanwhile, managed to steal one map off mousesports (1-2) and swept both Heretics and Tricked.

Even though there is a chance this game can go the distance, we are leaning towards a 2-0 win for c0ntact. That is largely because of Owen “smooya” Butterfield, who has been averaging a 1.34 rating since his arrival in late August.

Perfect World Asia League Fall 2020

TIGER vs BREN ESPORTS CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: TIGER +160 at BetOnline | Bren -222.22 at BetOnline
When: October 9, 2020 at 16:00 CST
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/pgl)

Bren Esports have met with TIGER three times since August, losing each bout for an aggregate score of 1-6. Their most recent meeting happened in September during the group stage of Perfect World Asia League Fall 2020, where Bren took the series lead (16-12) but lost the next two maps 9-16.

Despite Bren’s poor head-to-head record with TIGER, Chris “Pro.” Martir and co. enter this match priced as big favourites. That is likely due to Bren’s recent success against ZIGMA (2-0) and Invictus Gaming (2-1), but even that does not convince us.

League of Legends World Championship 2020

ROGUE vs JD GAMING LoL BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

LoL Betting Odds: Rogue +304 at BetOnline | JDG -400 at BetOnline
When: October 9, 2020 at 17:00 CST
Watch Live: Lolesports, Twitch

Last time out, JD Gaming crushed Rogue in just over 30 minutes with a 21-8 kill score and +14k gold lead. There is nothing that would lead us to believe their second meeting will play out any differently.

Rogue enter this match with a 1-2 record, meaning a loss here would all but guarantee them to miss the playoffs. The urgency to win will likely inspire a stronger performance from the European side, but they don’t have the tools to match JD Gaming either individually or as a unit.

LoL betting sites are paying around -135.14 on JD Gaming to win the game with at least eight kills to spare, which is a very generous price for one of the most aggressive teams in the tournament.

DAMWON GAMING vs JD GAMING LoL BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

LoL Betting Odds: DWG -181.82 at BetOnline | JDG +148 at BetOnline
When: October 9, 2020 at 21:00 CST
Watch Live: Lolesports, Twitch

DAMWON Gaming stomped JD Gaming into the dirt in their first meeting at the League of Legends World Championship with 25-7 in kills and a 15.6k gold lead. After such a commanding display from the Korean squad, it’s hard to believe JDG can turn things around; however, we have to consider their first meeting was also their opening match of the tournament, which are notorious for volatile results.

JD Gaming are still one of the best teams in the world and more than capable of making DWG bleed. Even though their aggressive playstyle can turn around and bite them, it also makes JD a very dangerous team if they grab an early lead.

Normally we would side with DWG to win, but not at these odds. The League of Legends Pro League (LPL) Spring champions are priced way too high for what they bring to the table, so we don’t need to think twice about this one.
