Are You Ready for IEM New York: North America?
IEM New York: North America has just kicked off with a wealth of diversity between the favorites in the title betting. FURIA of Brazil are in the top four to win, but they face fierce competition in Group A from Evil Geniuses.
In Group B, Team Liquid are well backed at US betting sites, but they need to get through 100 Thieves and their mostly Australian squad. We love the diversity in the competition this campaign, as it’ll be exciting to see the various strategy dynamics come into play.

Dota PIT Season 3: China Eliminations
Time flies when you’re having fun, and we can’t believe we’re already at the elimination stages of China Dota PIT Season 3. It feels as though the campaign started a few days ago, but here we are.
The first two teams eliminated from the tournament were Sparking Arrow Gaming and Invictus Gaming. Both sides had poor performances throughout and lost each game in the group stage.
With those two knocked out, we’re ready for the next round of eliminations. We see Vici Gaming are favourites with Dota 2 betting sites in the first upper-bracket round as they take on Team MagMa. Vici are a powerhouse in the region, and it’s tough for most competitors to take them down.
The battle between EHOME and Royal Never Give Up has the betting odds slightly skewed in favor of the former. This one will be a tight game and will come down to who can assert their dominance from the beginning.

Astralis Bring Back Xyp9x
Not too long ago, Astralis took the title at the ESL Pro League. They are set to use the same active roster for the upcoming DreamHack Open Fall Regional Major Ranking tournament. It was a winning recipe for ESL, and there’s no reason to fix what isn’t broken.
However, the coach, Danny “zonic” Sørensen, recently announced that Andreas “Xyp9x” Højsleth is back training and practicing with the team and will feature in the BLAST Premier Fall Series. His return after a four-month hiatus has some fans unimpressed due to the team’s recent success.
Xyp9x took a break because he displayed burnout symptoms, which is becoming a serious health issue within the professional esports community. That is one of the reasons Astralis have opted for a seven-man roster, as it allows players to take regular breaks and avoid exhaustion.

Oceanic Esports League Week 10
Adio Chula will take on Sincerely Fury in the second battle of the Oceanic Esports League’s 10th week. It’s been little over a month since they last faced each other, and Sincerely Fury won that encounter 2-0.
Since then, Sincerely Fury have seriously dropped the ball. Adio Chula have done the opposite and improved their Dota 2 form significantly. They even made it through to a draw against cuteanimegirls, who are dominating the series.
As such, it is no surprise that Adio Chula are firm favorites for this clash at Australian esports betting sites.
