State 3, week 2 of Overwatch League goes into overdrive on Super Saturday, with London Spitfire desperate to open their account, with a victory over Philadelphia Fusion, but the bookies have declared them rank outsiders. New York Excelsior and Boston Uprising are also expected to win their matches against Houston and Florida respectively.
Kenny R gives his tips for all the Saturday, April 14, action:
London Spitfire (0W – 2L) vs. Philadelphia Fusion (1W – 1L)
This is a great rematch of the first Playoffs battle from Stage 2. Philadelphia Fusion won that match (3 – 2), but the victory could have gone either way. The same thing is true for this encounter, so you should probably stay away from it. If you want to bet, bet on Philadelphia Fusion, as its recent form has been much better than Spitfire’s.
Betting prediction: Philadelphia Fusion to win.
New York Excelsior (2W – 0L) vs. Houston Outlaws (1W – 1L)
New York Excelsior is one class above everyone else in OWL at the moment. Furthermore, Houston Outlaws is not in a very good shape and in its head to head matches against New York Excelsior, it’s at a clear disadvantage (0 – 2). All things considered, this should be a relatively easy victory for the New York team.
Betting prediction: New York Excelsior to win.
Florida Mayhem (0W – 2L) vs. Boston Uprising (2W – 0L)
Normally, Florida Mayhem wouldn’t have the faintest chance against Boston Uprising. The head to head record is 0 – 2 in Uprising’s favor, the overall performance in the OWL during Stage 1 and Stage 2 is also on their side, so this match should definitely end with a very predictable result. However, it’s still not clear what will happen to Boston Uprising and how their playstyle will change after losing one of their key players.
Betting prediction: Boston Uprising to win.
