G2 ESPORTS vs AGO CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: G2 -357.14 at BetOnline | AGO +281 at BetOnline
CS:GO Betting Lines: G2 -1.5 at -114.94 | AGO +1.5 at -114.94
When: September 17, 2020 at 14:00 CEST

AGO are already eliminated from the ESL Pro League after losing four of their five games so far, whereas G2 Esports are 2-3 and still in contention for a playoffs spot.

G2 struggled last week when they lost to Heroic (1-2), ENCE (0-2) and BIG (1-2), while AGO dropped the ball against Natus Vincere (0-2) and ENCE (1-2). If we look at the results alone, it may seem like there is not a lot to set G2 apart from AGO; however, the quality gap is still fairly large.

G2 tend to underperform against weaker sides, but since this is a must-win match for them, we will trust the French squad to secure a perfect 2-0.

NATUS VINCERE vs HEROIC CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: NaVi -101.01 at BetOnline | Heroic -117.65 at BetOnline
CS:GO Betting Lines: NaVi +1.5 at -312.5 | Heroic -1.5 at +221
When: September 17, 2020 at 17:30 CEST
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/esl_csgo)

As the esports betting odds would suggest, we are in for a close and exciting affair. Both sides have shown similar form, but we are leaning more towards the Danish roster.

Even though Heroic have had some iffy moments, including a 1-2 loss to AGO and three-map series against BIG (2-1) and GODSENT (2-1) last week, NaVi are in a far worse situation, and their narrow win against OG (2-1) on Sunday does not inspire much confidence.

Heroic are on the rise, while NaVi are losing momentum. We expect this trend to continue on Thursday.

TEAM VITALITY vs COMPLEXITY CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: Vitality +114 at BetOnline | Complexity -136.99 at BetOnline
CS:GO Betting Lines: Vitality +1.5 at -312.5 | Complexity -1.5 at +221
When: September 17, 2020 at 21:00 CEST
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/esl_csgo)

Complexity Gaming are looking better and better with each passing day. While they dropped maps against Team Spirit (2-1) and Fnatic (2-1) last week, they are 4-0 and headed to the ESL Pro League playoffs.

While Team Vitality are not performing at the level many expected them to, they have their flashes of greatness from time to time. Those may be rare, but this team can be a deadly when everything falls into place.

We are not ready to believe Vitality can stop Complexity, but it’s highly likely they can force a three-map series.

GEN.G vs 100 THIEVES CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: Gen.G +153 at BetOnline | 100T -208.33 at BetOnline
CS:GO Betting Lines: Gen.G +1.5 at -188.68 | 100T -1.5 at +139
When: September 17, 2020 at 12:00 PDT
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/esl_csgo)

Even though Gen.G won 27 rounds against Evil Geniuses on Saturday, their overall showings at the ESL Pro League have been mediocre at best – as shown in their 0-2 loss to Chaos Esports Club last week.

100 Thieves started their ESL Pro League campaign with losses to EG (0-2) and Team Liquid (1-2) but proved they’re the real deal with a commanding win over Chaos (2-0) last Thursday, restricting their opponents to only eight points in total.

These teams last met in mid-August during ESL One Cologne, where 100T won 2-1. We expect more of the same this Thursday, but with a much more one-sided scoreline.

BTS Pro Series Season 3 Southeast Asia

TNC PREDATOR vs 496 GAMING DOTA 2 BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

Dota 2 Betting Odds: TNC +140 at BetOnline | Draw +113 | 496 +368
Dota 2 Betting Lines: TNC -0.5 at +129 | 496 +0.5 at -175.44
When: September 17, 2020 at 16:00 SGT
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/beyondthesummit)

496 Gaming started their BTS Pro Series journey with a stalemate against Neon Esports (1-1) and a commanding win over Fnatic (2-0), but they slipped on Monday when they lost to Motivate.Trust Gaming (0-2). TNC Predator have seen far more success, producing a 3-1-0 record with a draw against BOOM Esports (1-1) and wins against NEW Esports (2-0), Fnatic (2-0) and Neon Esports (2-0).

TNC Predator have met with 496 Gaming six times and won each series, with a combined 12-3 map differential. Even though these two sides have not yet clashed in 2020, we like TNC better due to their recent resurgence in form. A draw is still a possibility, but the odds on the favourites are hard to ignore.

NEON ESPORTS vs MOTIVADE.TRUST GAMING DOTA 2 BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

Dota 2 Betting Odds: Neon +140 at BetOnline | Draw +115 | MTG +360
Dota 2 Betting Lines: Neon -0.5 at +138 | MTG +0.5 at -188.68
When: September 17, 2020 at 18:00 SGT
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/beyondthesummit)

Motivade.Trust Gaming have picked up a few solid results this tournament, including a stalemate against Execration (1-1) and a convincing win over 496 Gaming (2-0). Even though they lost to Among Us (0-2) on Tuesday, Motivade.Trust held on surprisingly well against a stack assembled from some of the best players in the region.

Neon Esports have managed only one win from their four outings in the BTS Pro Series. That came against NEW Esports (2-0), while they failed to see the same success against 496 Gaming (1-1), BOOM Esports (0-2) and TNC Predator (0-2).

Due to Neon’s lack of consistency, it’s very difficult to understand why Motivade.Trust are priced at such high odds. Even though Neon defeated Motivade in each of their last four meetings, the underdogs are in much better form and look set to claim a revenge win.

BTS Pro Series Season 3 Europe/CIS

TEAM UNIQUE vs TEAM EMPIRE DOTA 2 BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

Dota 2 Betting Odds: Unique +211 at BetOnline | Draw +119 | Empire +211
Dota 2 Betting Lines: Unique +0.5 at -312.5 | MTG -0.5 at +216
When: September 17, 2020 at 14:00 CEST
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/beyondthesummit)

Usually, we would side with Team Empire for this matchup since they swept Team Unique just under a month ago during the OMEGA League. However, after seeing Empire’s performance against B8 (1-1), it’s difficult to view them as the favourites – even though we do not rank their next opponents very highly.

Unique are not a team we expect much from. Their form looks solid on paper, but they have played only three games across the last two weeks and are still somewhat shaky in execution. Both teams look a bit off, which is why we expect to see a 1-1 draw.

5MEN vs KHAN DOTA 2 BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

Dota 2 Betting Odds: 5men -114.94 at BetOnline | Draw +140 | Khan +572
Dota 2 Betting Lines: 5men -0.5 at -116.28 | Khan +0.5 at -116.28
When: September 17, 2020 at 18:00 CEST
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/beyondthesummit)

5men lost both of their opening fixtures at BTS Pro Series against two tough opponents in mudgolem and Vikin.gg, but now Marcus “Ace” Hoelgaard and co. can look for a few wins as they take on some weaker teams.

While we don’t expect 5men to go all the way at the BTS Pro Series due to their obvious lack of cohesion, they still field a very talented roster comprised of ex-Cloud9 and OG.Seed players.

5men have already defeated Alliance (2-1), Natus Vincere (2-0) and FlyToMoon (2-0) since forming only a month ago. While consistency is still a problem, they look solid enough to defeat Khan without any issues.

China Dota2 Pro Cup Season 1

PSG.LGD vs TEAM ASTER DOTA 2 BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

Dota 2 Betting Odds: PSG -156.25 at BetOnline | Aster +116 at BetOnline
When: September 17, 2020 at 16:00 CST
Watch Live: Youtube

PSG.LGD and Team Aster will clash in the opening match of China Dota2 Pro Cup Season 1, and it should be a much more one-sided fixture than the betting odds would lead us to believe.

PSG.LGD won four of their last five meetings between these two side. While Aster claimed a 2-0 win in their most recent bout at the start of July during DPL-CDA League S2, it’s hard to imagine we will see the same result here.

Both teams have been inactive for two months, so some ring rust is expected. Nevertheless, the odds offered on PSG.LGD are well worth taking.
