ESB’s free esports betting predictions for Thursday will focus on two Asian Dota2 tournaments – Moon Studio Mid-Autumn League and CDA-FDC Professional Championship – as well as two Counter-Strike: Global Offensive fixtures at Nine to Five #5.

Moon Studio Mid-Autumn League

GALAXY RACER vs DEMONSTER DOTA 2 BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

Dota 2 Betting Odds: Galaxy Racer -144.93 at BetOnline | DeMonster +106 at BetOnline
When: October 22, 2020 at 13:00 CST
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/moonstudio_ru)

Galaxy Racer made it through the Southeast Asian group without dropping a single match, although they also drew four (4-4-0), so their run was far from perfect. DeMonster saw similar success (4-4-1) in the Chinese group, with their lone loss coming from their bout with Team Sirius.

Even though DeMonster are a stack of amateur players, they should not be underestimated. They played stalemates with MagMa and LBZS – who caused serious damage to some of the best Chinese Dota 2 teams last month – so they are not a bad team and should be more than capable of defeating Galaxy Racer.

TEAM SIRIUS vs NEON ESPORTS DOTA 2 BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

Dota 2 Betting Odds: Sirius +121 at BetOnline | Neon -166.67 at BetOnline
When: October 22, 2020 at 16:00 CST
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/moonstudio_ru)

Neon Esports completed the group stage with a 3-5-0 record, but they managed to pick up a stalemate against the reigning BTS Pro Series Southeast Asia champions, Motivate.Trust Gaming. Team Sirius ended the group stage at 4-5-0, although they picked up two forfeit wins, so they really only beat MagMa and DeMonster.

These teams have met only once before – back in October 2019 – when Neon swept Sirius 2-0 during Hainan Master Cup qualifying. Neon were the stronger team back then, and it seems like that hasn’t changed. We are happy with the head-to-head price, but the -1.5 handicap on the favourites is worth a shot as well.

CDA-FDC Professional Championship

ROYAL NEVER GIVE UP vs ELEPHANT.4AM DOTA 2 BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

Dota 2 Betting Odds: RNG +250 at BetOnline | 4AM -357.14 at BetOnline
When: October 22, 2020 at 14:00 CST
Watch Live: Youtube

Elephant.4AM (Four Angry Men) are a newly formed team comprised of some of the biggest names in the Chinese Dota2 scene, including ex-PSG.LGD players Lu “Somnus丶M” Yao and Xu “fy” Linsen, former ViCi Gaming members in Zhou “Yang” Haiyang and Zhang “Eurus” Chengjun (aka Paparazi), and ex-Sparking Arrow Gaming support Ru “RedPanda” Zhihao.

That is a stacked roster, so it’s fair that 4AM are heavy favourites over the struggling Royal Never Give Up. However, we feel like esports bookmakers have gone a bit loose by pricing RNG at $3.50. There is huge value in siding with the underdogs here, even at the +1.5 handicap.

Nine to Five #5

HARD LEGION vs KOVA CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: HL -121.95 at BetOnline | KOVA -111.11 at BetOnline
When: October 22, 2020 at 10:00 MSK
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/TEBtv)

Since the start of September, Hard Legion have parted ways with Erik “AKIMOV” Akimov, placed Vladislav “Krad” Kravchenko on the transfer list and promoted Dmitry “rAge” Bolotov to assistant coach. Only Sergey “starix” Ischuk and Anton “DrobnY” Drobny have come in as replacements, meaning head coach Sergey “starix” Ischuk is likely to fill in for this game.

KOVA’s only recent roster change came in August when they benched Nikita “Derkeps” Sirmitev in favour of Nikita “Derkeps” Sirmitev. Since then, the Finnish squad have produced mediocre results. They’re 3-2 in their last five, including a 1-2 loss to HAVU and 1-3 to SJ Gaming.

Since HardLegion enter this match with an incomplete roster, it’s hard to trust them. HL have also recorded very shaky results this month, including two losses to Illuminar Gaming (5-16 and 13-16).

LDLC vs LILMIX CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: HL -232.56 at BetOnline | KOVA +165 at BetOnline
When: October 22, 2020 at 10:00 MSK
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/TEBtv)

Although Lilmix have won five matches in a row, their only notable result in that run came against Giants Gaming (16-2) last Friday. While LDLC mostly play weaker, semi-amateur teams, Lambert “Lambert” Prigent and co. recently beat Movistar Riders (16-10) and before that demolished S-Gaming (16-9) and Wisla Krakow (16-4).

LDLC and Lilmix last met on October 10 at ESEA Season 35 Advanced Division Europe, where the French squad bounced back from a 6-9 deficit after the first half to secure a 16-14 win. Considering their last meeting was fairly open, we can expect another close affair with all three maps played.
