ESB’s free esports betting predictions for Wednesday focus on three China Dota2 Pro Cup Season 2 qualifiers and two National Electronic Sports Tournament 2020 League of Legends fixtures, featuring some of the strongest Chinese esports teams.

China Dota2 Pro Cup Season 2 Qualifier

SPARKING ARROW GAMING vs ASTER.ARIES DOTA 2 BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

Dota 2 Betting Odds: SAG -400 at BetOnline | Aries +261 at BetOnline
When: November 11, 2020 at 14:00 CST
Watch Live: ImbaTV

Sparking Arrow Gaming beat Aster.Aries in a pair of clean sweeps just over two weeks ago during the CDA-FDC Pro Championship qualifiers. With those results, SAG extended their head-to-head record to a perfect 5-0 with a 10-0 map differential.

The Dota 2 betting odds suggest SAG are a much stronger side, and we can’t argue with that. Even though they’re not nearly as strong as they were before the exodus of their key players from July to September, SAG are still a class above an Aster.Aries outfit who only perform well against weaker teams.

IG.VITALITY vs TEAM MAGMA DOTA 2 BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

Dota 2 Betting Odds: iG.V +137 at BetOnline | MagMa -188.68 at BetOnline
When: November 11, 2020 at 17:00 CST
Watch Live: ImbaTV

Team MagMa and iG.Vitality have met only twice before. The first clash happened at the start of October, when iG.V celebrated a 2-0 victory, while the second bout two weeks later saw MagMa reverse sweep iG.V to win 2-1.

MagMa enter this bout without a single W in their last six (0-2-4) and only one win in their last nine games. IG.Vitality are in a similar position with only one win in the last seven, but they have also not played an official match in over two weeks.

Both teams are struggling with their form, which suggests this game can go either way. There is some value in backing Team MagMa, but we will play it safe and go for overs.

TEAM SIRIUS vs CDEC GAMING DOTA 2 BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

Dota 2 Betting Odds: Sirius -158.73 at BetOnline | CDEC +117 at BetOnline
When: November 11, 2020 at 20:00 CST
Watch Live: ImbaTV

CDEC Gaming have met with Team Sirius six times in their history and won all but one fixture. But that strong head-to-head record does not hold much weight for our prediction, largely because CDEC are not the same team they once were.

Once regarded as one of the strongest Chinese Dota2 teams, CDEC are now only a shadow of their former selves – and even that is an understatement. They lost all five of their key players in September and now field a bunch of unknowns who have lost to DeMonster, Matador and other semi-professional teams.

CDEC’s lack of success makes it hard to believe they can win here. There is a world where Sirius produce a clean sweep, but we won’t push our luck.

National Electronic Sports Tournament 2020

BILIBILI GAMING vs SUNING LoL BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

LoL Betting Odds: Bilibili -285.71 at BetOnline | Suning +198 at BetOnline
When: November 11, 2020 at 16:00 CST
Watch Live: Huya

It may be shocking to see the 2020 LoL World Championship finalists priced as underdogs against Bilibili Gaming, but Suning have entered NEST 2020 with their secondary lineup rather than the five-man roster that made such a big splash on the international stage.

While it’s hard to say how well Suning’s substitutes will perform, it’s also difficult to justify the large gap in the LoL betting odds. Bilibili Gaming were one of the worst teams in the League of Legends Pro League (LPL) 2020 Summer season, while they lost to Rogue Warriors 0-2 on Monday.

Bilibili might still come out victorious, but after their shaky performance against RW, we don’t see how they will manage a clean sweep.

FUNPLUS PHOENIX vs ESTAR LoL BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

LoL Betting Odds: FPX -344.83 at BetOnline | eStar +236 at BetOnline
When: November 11, 2020 at 18:00 CST
Watch Live: Huya

FunPlus Phoenix have not impressed in the 2020 season, but they’re still a very strong team who have had to make do with an unfavourable meta. Meanwhile, eStar had a breakthrough split in the LPL 2020 Spring when they finished fifth, but they severely underperformed in the LPL 2020 Summer as they fell to 16th place with a 3-13 record.

FPX are firm favourites for good reason, but the odds could be even shorter. People tend to forget just how stacked FPX’s roster is and rather focus on eStar’s one-off run in the spring.
