Tobias “ShoWTimE” Sieber and Byun “ByuN” Hyun-woo will clash in the opening match of Group C at PiG Sty Festival, marking their third meeting of the year and their first since the German StarCraft II pro won 2-1 in September. It marked his third head-to-head victory and the first since March 2017, having lost his other two bouts with ByuN in July 2017 and February 2021.

Despite his success in September, the esports bookmakers have ShoWTimE priced as an underdog, which is understandable; however, we wouldn’t say that ByuN is that much better. Even though the 28-year-old has accomplished far more over his 11-year SCII esports career, he hasn’t won anything of note since the Cheeseadelphia Winter Championship in January.

ShoWTimE’s success in 2021 was limited to a few Minor tournament titles and one Major title at WardiTV Team Liquid Map Contest #7. Regardless, there is nothing that would suggest that ByuN’s implied probability of winning this bout should be anywhere close to 70%. ShoWTimE should be priced much lower, which presents us with a great value bet at the offered SCII betting odds.

The current no.8 on the European ladder, Julian “Lambo” Brosig, will clash with Korea’s no.6, Joo “Zest” Sung-wook, in their fourth meeting of the year. Zest triumphed in the first two meetings with 2-1 and 2-0 to improve his head-to-head record to 6-1, but he lost 1-2 against Lambo last week.

Even though one win doesn’t mean much, especially since it was Lambo’s first head-to-head victory since 2018, it does show that the German StarCraft II pro can put up a fight against the 2015 world champion. Whether he can emulate that success on Thursday is another question.

It’s hard to find a solid case for Lambo; however, at the offered SCII betting odds, it’s fair to explore options to bet on the underdog. At +240, a small bet on Lambo is worth considering, but we will play it safe and settle for the outsider with a map advantage.
