ESB brings you Tuesday’s best esports bets and odds for three KeSPA Cup 2020 League of Legends fixtures and a pair of bouts at the Huya Dota2 Winter Invitational.

KeSPA Cup 2020

FREDIT BRION vs KT ROLSTER LoL BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

LoL Betting Odds: BRION +128 at BetOnline | KT Rolster -178.57 at BetOnline

The second round of KeSPA Cup 2020 will begin with a clash between KT Rolster and Fredit BRION (formerly hyFresh Blade). Given that BRION hail from Challengers Korea (CK), it’s hard to be overly excited about their chances to upset KT Rolster, but it’s not an impossible task.

Outside of acquiring Choi “Doran” Hyeon-joon as a replacement for Song “Smeb” Kyung-ho, KT Rolster have not made any significant roster changes ahead of the 2021 season. That is somewhat concerning, especially with the departure of ADC Kim “Aiming” Ha-ram.

KT Rolster have also promoted six academy players to their main squad this month, which suggests they will likely field their B-team for the KeSPA Cup rather than their preferred starting lineup. This should give Fredit BRION a solid chance to win for an upset win at decent odds.

HANWHA LIFE ESPORTS vs T1 ACADEMY LoL BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

LoL Betting Odds: Hanwha -204.08 at BetOnline | T1 +148 at BetOnline
When: December 22, 2020 at 18:00 KST
Watch Live: YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/kespa)


T1 have confirmed they’re sending their academy squad to the KeSPA Cup, while Hanwha Life Esports are expected to field their starting lineup. Hanwha have also made a few significant roster changes during the offseason, namely the signing of two ex-DRX players in mid laner Jeong “Chovy” Ji-hoon and ADC Kim “Deft” Hyuk-kyu.

Although T1 field a fairly solid academy team, we shouldn’t expect any surprises. It’s unknown which roster Hanwha Life will use for the KeSPA Cup, but it’s safe to expect a balanced mix of main and academy roster players, which should be enough for a comfortable win.

T1 ACADEMY vs GEN.G ACADEMY LoL BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

LoL Betting Odds: T1 -188.68 at BetOnline | Gen.G +138 at BetOnline
When: December 22, 2020 at 21:00 KST
Watch Live: YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/kespa)


Both teams enter this match with their academy roster, and while T1’s squad looks slightly stronger on paper, they’re not worth a bet at these odds. Most of Gen.G’s academy players have previous League of Legends Champions Korea (LCK) experience, so they should be very competitive.

The only notable advantage T1 could potentially have comes in the top lane, where they field Kim “Roach” Kang-hee, but we don’t believe he will have a major impact on the fixture from his position. A bet on the outsiders makes more sense to us.

Huya Dota2 Winter Invitational

TEAM MAGMA vs NEON ESPORTS DOTA 2 BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

Dota 2 Betting Odds: MagMa -232.56 at BetOnline | Neon +165 at BetOnline
When: December 22, 2020 at 11:00 CST
Watch Live: Weibo (https://weibo.com/7155917318)


Team MagMa will clash with Neon Esports for the third time this year and for the first time since Wednesday, when they bested Neon 2-1 during the Moon Studio Carnival Cup. It marked MagMa’s first head-to-head victory after two 0-2 losses in late November and early December.

It’s not like MagMa made any significant roster changes that helped them defeat Neon last time out, so it’s fair to say that their recent success came down to form. On that note, MagMa enter this match in very questionable shape with a 2-3 record from their last five outings, which includes losses against Dalanjing Gaming, LBZS and Ink Ice.

Regardless, Neon Esports’ form is even worse with only two wins in their last 10. Due to Neon’s uninspiring results, we don’t feel comfortable siding with them, but since both sides seem a bit shaky, a three-map series is likely on the cards.

TEAM ASTER vs ROYAL NEVER GIVE UP DOTA 2 BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

Dota 2 Betting Odds: Aster -232.56 at BetOnline | RNG +165 at BetOnline
When: December 22, 2020 at 20:00 CST
Watch Live: Weibo (https://weibo.com/7155917318)


The odds on Royal Never Give Up to win this bout seem very generous. Although Team Aster have improved significantly across the last two months, they’re still a bit too inconsistent for us to say they belong amongst the top bracket of Chinese Dota2 esports teams.

What’s more, RNG are 6-1-3 up in the head-to-head stakes this year and have swept Aster in both of their last two meetings. It’s worth noting that RNG announced Su “Flyby” Lei as a stand-in for Sun “Srf” Runfa during the Huya Dota2 Winter Invitational, but that’s hardly a downgrade considering FlyBy has been averaging the highest KDA (4.71) on the team. At these odds, we have to side with RNG to win.
