eSport Betting Predictions

After hitting all five of our League of Legends World Championship predictions for Saturday, which earned our readers 4.27 units of profit, ESB is back with another set of daily esports betting predictions. For Tuesday’s tips, we turn our focus to the ESL Pro League playoffs across three regions.

ESL Pro League Season 12 Europe Playoffs

NATUS VINCERE vs MOUSESPORTS CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: NaVi -217.39 at BetOnline | mouz +163 at BetOnline
When: September 29, 2020 at 14:00 CEST
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/esl_csgo)


Natus Vincere topped their ESL Pro League group with six wins from seven games and an impressive +50 round differential. Mousesports, on the other side, scraped across the line in Group B with a 4-3 record and +12 round differential.

NaVi looked much sharper throughout the group stage, so it makes perfect sense to see them priced as the favourites. However, mousesports are not nearly as bad as they’re portrayed to be, and they’ve won at least one map against NaVi in all of their meetings dating back to July 2019 at ESL One Cologne 2019.

While the Ukrainians are still the most likely victors, there is a high chance we will see a three-map series. A NaVi 2-1 correct score bet can also be considered.

COMPLEXITY GAMING vs ENCE CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: Complexity +151 at BetOnline | ENCE -204.08 at BetOnline
When: September 29, 2020 at 17:30 CEST
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/esl_csgo)


The main thing to note for this match is that Complexity Gaming are without Owen “oBo” Schlatter, who recently decided to step down from the active roster. This is a massive blow to the team and the main reason why ENCE are so heavily favoured by CS:GO betting sites.

Even though Complexity looked deadly throughout the group stage with five wins from seven outings, the departure of their star player deprives them of much-needed firepower to compete with an ENCE side who have found their stride and are slowly climbing back towards the summit of the European CS:GO scene.

Normally we would side with Complexity, but due to the recent news regarding oBo, a 2-0 win to ENCE looks the most likely result.

BIG vs TEAM SPIRIT CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: BIG -185.19 at BetOnline | Spirit +140 at BetOnline
When: September 29, 2020 at 21:00 CEST
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/esl_csgo)

BIG enter the ESL Pro League playoffs as the second seed from Group A, where they produced a 5-2 record and a +25 round differential. Team Spirit, meanwhile, finished third in Group B with a 4-3 record and a -15 round differential.

These teams last met during the ESL Pro League Season 12 European Qualifier in June, where BIG won 2-0. The German side have slowed down a bit since then, but they are still one of the top teams in the scene. BIG enter this match on a five-game winning streak, having recently defeated G2 Esports (2-1), GODSENT (2-1), ENCE (2-1) and twice Cowana Gaming (16-2, 16-8).

Spirit have had their flashes of greatness, but the Russians historically struggle to perform against their German counterparts, which is why we have no problems siding with BIG at the -1.5 handicap.

ESL Pro League Season 12 Asia Playoffs

TYLOO vs ViCi GAMING CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: TYLOO -153.85 at BetOnline | ViCi +113 at BetOnline
When: September 29, 2020 at 16:00 CST
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/esl_csgo)

TYLOO reverse-swept Beyond Esports with 16-14 on Mirage and 16-8 on Inferno to lock in a spot in the upper-bracket finals. ViCi Gaming achieved a similar feat in their opening game of the tournament when they crushed Invictus Gaming with 16-0 on Vertigo and 16-14 on Nuke.

These teams met just over a week ago in the Perfect World Asia League Fall 2020 Regular Season, where TYLOO won 2-1. The match could have ended either way seeing how ViCi took the series lead with 16-12 on Train but lost 14-16 on both Inferno and Overpass.

Considering how close their recent meeting was, ViCi look a good value pick at +113 for the win. A safer bet, however, is the over 2.5 maps since four out of the last five meetings between TYLOO and ViCi went the distance – the only exception being a 3-1 win for TYLOO at ESL One Cologne 2020 Online at the end of August.

ESL Pro League Season 12 Oceania Playoffs

RENEGADES vs ORDER CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: Renegades -555.56 at BetOnline | ORDER +343 at BetOnline
When: September 29, 2020 at 14:30 AEST
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/esl_csgo)

These teams last met at the start of September in the finals of Perfect World Oceania League Fall 2020, where Renegades won 2-1. That win put Chris “dexter” Nong and co. 5-1 up against ORDER in their last six meetings, and with a 13-6 map differential.

Despite what the head-to-head record might suggest, we must stress that the Oceanic CS:GO scene is prone to upsets. As such, it makes much more sense to side with ORDER to win at least one map.
