PiG Sty Festival 3.0 continues on Friday, March 17, and here you can find our top picks for the day. Check out our predictions for Joona “Serral” Sotala vs Jang “Creator” Hyun-woo and Park “Dark” Ryung-woo vs Clément “Clem” Desplanches, with StarCraft II betting odds courtesy of BetOnline.


Best Odds: Serral -833.33 at BetOnline | Creator +450 at BetOnline

Despite being two of the best StarCraft II esports players from their regions, Joona “Serral” Sotala and Jang “Creator” Hyun-woo will clash on Friday for only the third time ever. They first met in 2018, while their last meeting came at HomeStory Cup XXI in July 2022, when Serral won 2-0.

Given his success, it makes sense for esports betting sites to have Serral priced as the favourite for this affair, and even -833.33 doesn’t seem too crazy. Serral is one of the best SCII players in recent history, and he proved that with titles from IEM Katowice 2022, HomeStory Cup XXI, and TSL 9, which he added on top of a silver medal from TSL 8, and a top-three finish at DH Masters Atlanta.

Creator has not won a big tournament in years; however, he had a few strong showings in 2022, including a silver medal from 2022 Global StarCraft II League Season 1: Code S. Creator has also been far more active over the last month, so as much as this is Serral’s match to lose, Creator should be prepared to cause some damage.

We’re getting -200 on Creator to win at least one map, which is a solid offer. A smaller position on Creator with a 1.5-map handicap is also worth considering.

Creator +2.5 maps



Best Odds: Dark -175.44 at BetOnline | Clem +125 at BetOnline

Park “Dark” Ryung-woo and Clément “Clem” Desplanches last met just over a month ago at IEM Katowice 2023, when Dark won 2-0 and eliminated the French SCII pro from the group stage.

Clem has since attended four tournaments, including #PassionCraft Knockout which he won with an incredible 4-1 victory over Kim “Cure” Doh-wook in the finals. Dark was just as active recently and did well earlier this month at WardiTV Winter Championship 2023 NA Server Qualifier #1 and ESL Open Cup #166 Korea.

Since Dark beat Clem a month ago, it’s fair to say that he has a solid chance to win again, but the offered SCII betting odds overestimate him a bit. Clem is still an elite-level player who just happened to have a poor run in Katowice, so we wouldn’t overreact to that defeat.

Clem is an excellent value bet at the offered price.
