Esportbet.com brings you another set of free esports betting predictions for Thursday, including two Counter-Strike: Global Offensive tournaments in FLASHPOINT Season 2 and Intel Extreme Masters Beijing, as well as two Dota2 fixtures at EPIC League Division 1.

FLASHPOINT Season 2

FNATIC vs DIGNITAS CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: Fnatic -500 at BetOnline | DIG +374 at BetOnline
When: November 19, 2020 at 14:00 CET
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/flashpoint)


Fnatic enter this match following a narrow 2-1 win against c0ntact Gaming and a humiliating reverse-sweep loss against MAD Lions (1-2). Like Fnatic, Dignitas lost to MAD (0-2) and outlasted c0ntact (2-1), which marked their first win since the signing of Haris “H4RR3” Hadžić and Ludvig “HEAP” Alonso in October.

Both teams have won only three games in their last 10 and only one this month. However, Dignitas have appeared in only four official games since September, making Fnatic’s run far less inspiring by comparison. The favourites should win regardless, but the better bet is to side with Dignitas to steal at least one map.

Dignitas +1.5 maps

FORZE vs MIBR CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: forZe -126.58 at BetOnline | MiBR +106 at BetOnline
When: November 19, 2020 at 17:00 CET
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/flashpoint)


MiBR lost their key players in September and started fresh by acquiring Lucas “LUCAS1” Teles and two loanees in Leonardo “leo_drk” Oliveira and Vinicius “v$m” Moreira, who have helped the Brazilian side to a few impressive results. They bested FURIA (2-1) earlier this month and forced Astralis, BIG and G2 Esports to three-map series (1-2), but we are not quite convinced with the longevity of MiBR’s resurgence.

MiBR are priced as underdogs for this bout, which is fair despite forZe’s somewhat unconvincing 1-3 record in November. This match seems like it can end either way, which makes over 2.5 maps a safe option, but we like the odds about forZe to take it 2-1.

ForZe 2-1 correct score

Intel Extreme Masters XV Beijing Online: Europe

FAZE CLAN vs G2 ESPORTS CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: FaZe +110 at BetOnline | G2 -151.52 at BetOnline
When: November 19, 2020 at 15:00 CET
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/esl_csgo)

FaZe Clan have been holding on surprisingly well since the departure of Nikola “NiKo” Kovač, beating OG (2-1) and Team Vitality (2-0) in the group stage of IEM Beijing. G2 Esports had their moment of greatness two weeks ago when they swept Astralis, but they’ve since shown they’re still a bit shaky on their feet with a 1-2 loss to Ninjas in Pyjamas and two narrow victories over North and mousesports.

Even though G2 look stronger on paper, FaZe are in better shape and could easily take the win. Still, we find betting on either team a bit too risky and will instead place our money on over 2.5 maps.

EPIC League Division 1

VIRTUS.PRO vs JUST ERROR DOTA 2 BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

Dota 2 Betting Odds: VP -181.82 at BetOnline | Error +135 at BetOnline
When: November 19, 2020 at 14:00 CET
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/team/epicenter)

The esports betting odds offered on Just Error seem a bit inflated, which is likely because Virtus.pro bested OG (2-0) on the opening day of the EPIC League. However, that does not mean VP are now a top-tier team, nor does it convince us they will do well against such a stacked squad.

Just Error have had their fair share of problems this tournament, but that was expected since they’re a recently formed stack of players rather than an established team. Nevertheless, they looked much more cohesive on Sunday when they crushed Team Liquid (2-0), and if that is any indication of what we can expect from them, the odds on the outsiders are too good to pass up.

ALLIANCE vs TEAM NIGMA DOTA 2 BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

Dota 2 Betting Odds: Alliance -108.7 at BetOnline | Nigma -121.95 at BetOnline
When: November 19, 2020 at 14:00 CET
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/team/epicenter)

Team Nigma enter this match following a 1-2 loss to mudgolems and a convincing 2-1 win over the struggling OG. Alliance, meanwhile, are still searching for their first win after they dropped the ball against OG (1-2) and Natus Vincere (1-2).

Nigma and Alliance last met in September during OMEGA League: EU Immortal, where Nigma won both series to extend their head-to-head win streak to four in a row. Even though a lot of time has passed since then, the balance of power has remained mostly the same, which is why we are siding with Nigma to take this one home.

Team Nigma to win
