Vulkan Fight Series

9INE vs TEAM UNIQUE CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: 9INE -169.49 at BetOnline | Unique +123 at BetOnline
When: December 24, 2020 at 13:10 CET
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/uccleague)


9INE enter this match on the back of two 1-2 losses against ex-Ethereal and Lilmix, meaning they’re only one defeat away from an early elimination. The same holds true for Team Unique, who didn’t win a single map in their losses against Lyngby Vikings and Project X.

Unique have produced only three wins since late October, and even those came against Saints (twice) and HONORIS. That is significantly worse than 9INE, who have bested the likes of Nordavind, Movistar Riders, LDLC, HellRaisers and other solid tier-two teams during that stretch.

9INE can be somewhat inconsistent at times, but this is still their game to lose. There is good money in backing the favourites to cover the line.

Demacia Cup 2020

FUNPLUS PHOENIX vs TOP ESPORTS LoL BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

LoL Betting Odds: FPX +218 at BetOnline | Top -322.58 at BetOnline
When: December 24, 2020 at 13:00 CST
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/thescoreesports)


After topping their group ahead of Oh My God, Rogue Warriors, Shu Da Xiong Gaming and HMG, FunPlus Phoenix are now set to face their toughest challenge of the tournament. Top Esports secured a comfortable 2-0 sweep when these teams last met in July, and it’s difficult to imagine this fixture will play out any differently.

Top have kept their roster intact, whereas FPX have added Jang “Nuguri” Ha-gwon to the top lane as a replacement for Kim “GimGoon” Han-saem and Kim “Khan” Dong-ha. This should make FPX deadlier, but until we see a bit more from them, Top should remain the favourites in these meetings.

VICI GAMING vs SUNING LoL BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

LoL Betting Odds: ViCi +140 at BetOnline | Suning -192.31 at BetOnline
When: December 24, 2020 at 18:50 CST
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/thescoreesports)


Suning made quite a statement with their runner-up finish at the 2020 League of Legends World Championship, so it is reasonable to see them priced at such low odds. Although it is highly likely they will try out their new ADC Xie “Jinjiao” Jin-Shan instead of Tang “huanfeng” Huan-Feng for this match, that shouldn’t harm their overall quality too much.

ViCi are a team with potential, but that’s all they can offer for now. They did not make any notable additions to the team during the offseason and even lost their best-performing player from the last League of Legends Pro League (LPL) split, Kim “Zeka” Geon-woo, to Bilibili Gaming.

There is a world where ViCi win one map, but we don’t expect much more from them. An outright bet on Suning is a solid pick, even at the short odds.

CasterMuse StarLeague Season 4

SNOW vs SACSRI SCII BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

SCII Betting Odds: Snow -196.08 at BetOnline | Sacsri +134 at BetOnline
When: December 24, 2020 at 17:00 KST
Watch Live: AfreecaTV (http://play.afreecatv.com/jsc9905)


The first thing that caught our attention here is the huge gap in the odds at most StarCraft II betting sites. Not only will this match be played as best-of-one fixture, but Jang “Snow” Yoon Chul lost to Lee “Sacsri” Yah Hoon only two weeks ago.

What’s more, Sacsri is extremely effective against Protoss (60.95% win rate), whereas Snow has not been too successful when facing Zergs of late. At these odds, Sacsri to win is great value.

VANYA vs KAS SCII BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

SCII Betting Odds: Vanya -250 at BetOnline | Kas +177 at BetOnline
When: December 24, 2020 at 19:00 MSK
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/3dclanru)


Out of six head-to-head bouts in 2020, Ivan “Vanya” Chepurnov’s only defeat so far came in a best-of-one clash in July. He has since triumphed twice with 3-0 in October and 2-0 in November. Vanya usually does well against Terran (62.67%), which is significantly higher than Mykhailo “Kas” Gaida’s 57.08% win rate against Zergs.

Everything is pointing towards another easy win for Vanya, but there is some value in siding with the outsider. At +177, the esports bookmakers are implying Kas has only a 9.06% chance to win, which is too low even in a best-of-three series.

Kas proved with his 2-0 sweep of Dmytro “DIMAGA” Filipchuk (Zerg) on Monday that he is not to be ignored. If that match is any indication, the 32-year-old Ukrainian just might produce another upset.
