NATUS VINCERE JUNIOR vs MOVISTAR RIDERS CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: NaVi Jr $1.77 at Betway | Movistar $1.96 at Betway

Natus Vincere Junior have come a long way this year and now look like a proper tier-two CS:GO esports team. Recent achievements include a silver medal from Eden Arena: Malta Vibes – Week 5 and a top-four finish at the CTRL PLAY LEAGUE.

Movistar Riders seemed a bit off in their loss against ESPADA in the group stage and even dropped 22 rounds in their series with BEZ ZP. Regardless, they seem to have improved judging by their 2-0 sweep of ENDPOINT in the quarter-finals.

Both teams are in good form, which makes us believe this match will be a coin-flip. NaVi Jr should be slightly favoured, but with Valerii “B1T” Vakhovskyi out of the team while he helps NaVi’s main roster fight their way through Intel Extreme Masters Season XV – Global Challenge, NaVi Jr seem poised to drop at least one map.

BTS Pro Series Season 4: Southeast Asia

TNC PREDATOR vs TEAM DOG DOTA 2 BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

Dota 2 Betting Odds: TNC $1.37 at Betway | Dog $2.90 at Betway
When: December 19, 2020 at 17:00 PHST
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/BeyondTheSummit)

Team Dog fought their way into the BTS Pro Series upper-bracket finals with an impressive reverse-sweep win against T1 (2-1) on Thursday. Similarly, TNC Predator had to work hard to defeat Fnatic (2-1), but it’s fair to say they were the better team on the day.

The odds at esports betting sites heavily favour TNC, and we would argue they might even be a little overpriced due to their 1-1 stalemate with Team Dog on Sunday. Still, we don’t recommend a bet on the head-to-head market in this one.

TNC to win 2-0 might be a better pick, but they’re not nearly consistent enough for us to take a shot on that either. Team Dog to win one map and over the line is a much better pick, in our book.

Huya Dota2 Winter Invitational

INVICTUS GAMING vs NEON ESPORTS DOTA 2 BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

Dota 2 Betting Odds: IG $1.21 at Betway | Neon $4.05 at Betway
When: December 19, 2020 at 14:00 CST

Invictus Gaming have yet to lose a single match this tournament, and it seems highly unlikely that will change on Saturday. So far, IG have beaten Team MagMa and Phoenix Gaming, whereas Neon Esports defeated Execration on Tuesday and lost to Phoenix on Thursday.

The last time these two sides met was in October, when Neon forced a 1-1 stalemate, but that does not mean much considering IG were struggling with their form at the time. Anything less than a 2-0 sweep for IG will be a huge disappointment.

ROYAL NEVER GIVE UP vs CDEC GAMING BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

Dota 2 Betting Odds: RNG $1.51 at Betway | CDEC $2.43 at Betway

These two sides last met in July, when CDEC Gaming locked in their fifth head-to-head win of the year with a 2-0 sweep. It also marked CDEC’s fourth consecutive triumph against Royal Never Give Up, which might suggest the trend will continue on Saturday, but we don’t believe that will be the case.

CDEC are not nearly as strong as they were before the departure of their entire roster in September. While the current squad is somewhat competitive, CDEC only seem to do well in low-tier tournaments.

That is not to say RNG are a far superior team, but they are holding on well in the online era of Dota 2 esports and consistently do well against weaker opponents. RNG should be in for a field day.
