eSports Betting: CBLOL April 26th Matches Odds & Picks

It doesn’t matter what sport you are talking about, there is nothing quite like the final week of the regular season, especially when there are playoff spots up for grabs. That is where we are at right now in the CBLOL, which is the Brazilian league in the League of Legends. The 8-team league runs through 9 weeks in the spring season, with the final 3 games of the regular season set to go on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. For this piece, we are jumping ahead to look at the Sunday games, so please keep in mind that the records and stats mentioned within are as of Friday morning, before the weekend games begin. Let’s check the League of Legends Odds for Sunday

eSports Betting: CBLOL April 26th Matches Odds & Picks

Prodigy Esports Vs Redemption Porto Alegre – 12 PM EST

As we head into the final weekend, there are 3 teams sitting ted for 3rd with a 9-9 record. With the top 4 teams heading to the playoff, the math tells you that at least one of those teams is going to miss out. Prodigy Esports are in that mix and are heading into the final 3 games on the heels of a loss. You have to think that 2 wins out of 3 might be enough to get them into the playoffs, and you have to believe that one of those wins will come here against a Redemption team that is dead last and doomed to relegation at the end of the season.

paIN Gaming Vs Furia Uppercut Esports – 1 PM EST

This may well prove to be the biggest game on the final day of the season, as these are the other two teams sitting tied for 3rd at 9-9. With only 4 spots available and a couple of teams also sitting just behind this group of 3, it is going to be a frantic final weekend. These two have split their regular season meetings this season, but things have been going south for paIN of late, as they head into this weekend on a 3-game losing skid. That’s not where you want to be at this point in the season, and it’s why I am taking Furia to win.

Vivo Keyd Vs KABUM E-SPORTS – 2 PM EST

The team most likely to go into the playoffs as the #1 seed is Vivo Keyd, as they are currently sitting on top with a 13-5 record, which puts them 2 wins clear of the closest challenger. You have to figure that one win would be enough for them to clinch top spot, which they should get before they come into this game. KABUM are sitting at 8-10 and out of a playoff spot heading into the weekend, which leads you to believe that 2 or 3 wins are required to have a shot at getting in. These two have split their previous meetings, but I am on Vivo to win here.

Flamengo Esports Vs INTZ – 3 PM EST

There is only one team in League of Legends CBLOL with a shot at running down the leaders right now, with Flamengo sitting 2 wins off the pace at 11-7. They would need to win out and hope for a collapse from Vivo Keyd, which is not likely to happen. Flamengo will want to secure that #2 spot, though, so look for them to finish strong. Coming into the weekend at 8-10, INTZ still have a shot at getting into the top 4, but they need a near perfect weekend. I think they are in trouble here given that they have lost both previous meetings with Flamengo this season.

eSports Betting: CBLOL April 25th Matches Odds & Picks

Before we dive into the games in the Brazilian version of the League of Legends, it’s a good idea to talk about how this particular league plays out. The League of Legends has leagues all over the world, but while they all play the same game, they all have different setups. The CBLOL is home to 8 teams, all of whom play each other 3 times over the course of a 9-week. The top 4 teams head into the playoffs, while the bottom team is relegated. This weekend is the final of the season, with each team having 3 games on tap. We are going to jump ahead to the Saturday games, but keep in mind that the stats mentioned here are as they were prior to the start of the final batch of games. Let’s check the League of Legends Odds for April 25th matches

eSports Betting: CBLOL April 25th Matches Odds & Picks

KABUM E-SPORTS (+154) Vs Flamengo eSports (-227) – 12 PM EST

The reality of the current situation in the CBLOL is that KABUM needs a big weekend if they are to get out of their 6th place tie and into the playoffs. They are at 8-10 right now, which leaves them 1 win back of the top 4. This is definitely a tough one for them, though, as they are up against a Flamengo team that is currently in the #2 spot with an 11-7 record, which leaves them in with an outside shot at the #1 seed. The bad news for KABUM is that they have lost both meetings to Flamengo this season, so they may be in trouble here.

Redemption Porto Alegre (+275) Vs Vivo Keyd (-476) – 1 PM EST

As we mentioned earlier, the CBLOL is a little different in that the bottom team does get relegated at the end of the season. As it stands heading into the weekend, Redemption Porto Alegre are sitting dead last at 5-13, which leaves them 3 wins off the pace. If they haven’t been officially relegated on Friday, chances are the final nail in their coffin will come one Saturday against the league leaders. This should be a comfortable win for Vivo.

Furia Uppercut Esports (+129) Vs INTZ (-188) – 2 PM EST

There are several games over the weekend that has big playoff implications, which is no surprise when you consider how tight things are in the middle of the table. It is Furia, who are at 9-9 heading into the weekend, who have the upper hand here, as they are currently sitting in a playoff position, whereas INTZ are on the outside looking in at 8-10. These two have split their season series, so this really is a bit of a coin flip. I am leaning towards Furia and the slight upset.

paIN Gaming (-175) Vs Prodigy Esports (+121) – 3 PM EST

This game is going to serve as a bit of a massive tiebreaker, as both of these teams are heading into the final weekend of the season tied for 3rd at 9-9. With only 4 teams going into the playoffs and a serious logjam happening in the middle of the division, a loss here could be brutal. paIN are coming into this weekend on a very good run of form, winning 3 in a row, while Prodigy are coming in on the heels of a loss. I am looking at paIN to keep the positive times rolling with a win here.

eSports Betting: Counter Strike Home Sweet Home Cup April 17 Matches

With the second week of Counter Strike: GO rolling right along and a pair of intriguing matchup of tap for Friday, April 17. Let’s find out which teams are in action and which ones are offering the best value against their Counter Strike eSports betting odds.

eSports Betting: Counter Strike Home Sweet Home Cup April 17 Matches

Friday, April 17 at 4:50 PM

Gambit Youngsters 1.75 vs. Copenhagen Flames 2.01

Gambit’s Counter Strike team has won just two of their last five matches but they managed to snap a two-match skid by subduing EndPoint 2-0 on Wednesday in their LOOT.BET finale. Gambit makes their Week 2 debut having won six of their last 10 matches. Over the past year, the Gambit Youngsters have played 110 matches and won 71 matches (65%).

Copenhagen’s Counter Strike team has lost four of five and brings a four-match losing streak into this affair including a 2-0 smackdown loss against Cloud9 in their FLASHPOINT Season 1 matchup on March 31. Copenhagen makes their #HomeSweetHome Week 2 debut having won just three of their last 10 matches. The Flames have played a whopping 130 matches over the course of the last year while winning 75 of those matches (58%).

Prediction

While Gambit hasn’t exactly been lighting the place on fire recently, they’re favored in this matchup because Copenhagen is playing absolutely awful coming into this affair. Not only that, but Gambit has won all three all-time head-to head meetings, most recently, picking up a 16-7 win on January 10 at DreamHack Open Leipzig. I wouldn’t overthink this pick very much. Gambit will get it done!

Pick: Gambit 2-1

Friday, April 17 at 6:20 PM

SKADE 1.77 vs. EndPoint 1.97

SKADE’s Counter Strike team has won three of their last five matches as they get set to make their Week 2 #HomeSweetHome debut. Unfortunately, they were humbled by Winstrike 2-0 on Thursday. SKADE has played 21 matches over the last three months and won a whopping 16 (77%) while winning 65 of 101 matches over the course of the last year (65%).

EndPoint’s Counter Strike has won three of their last five matches and snapped a two-match slide by getting past Apeks 2-1 on Wednesday. EndPoint played 18 matches over the last 3 months and won 11 matches (62%). Over the past year, EndPoint played in just 44 matches while winning 21 times (48%).

Prediction

SKADE might be the favorite here, but I like EndPoint to pull off the big upset in this affair. SKADE went 2-2 in Week 1 while EndPoint went 3-2 in Week 1. These two rivals have split two career head-to-head meetings with SKADE recording a 2-1 win on April 14 and EndPoint extracting some revenge by picking up a 2-0 win on April 16. I’m going with EndPoint to get it done again!

Pick: EndPoint 2-1

eSports Betting: League of Legends LPL April 17 Matches

With a trio of intriguing League of Legends LPL matches going down in China on Friday, esports betting enthusiasts everywhere will have three great opportunities to potentially cash in with winning esports wagers. Let’s find out who’s in action and where the best League of Legends odds.

eSports Betting: League of Legends LPL April 17 Matches

Friday, April 17 at 2:00 PM

 LNG Sports vs. World Elite

  • LNG +250
  • Team WE -416

LNG Sports is sitting in 16th place in the 17-team LPL at a dismal 4-10 in series (29%) and 12-23 in games (34%). LNG has lost five straight coming into this affair including a 2-0 shutout loss against Royal Never Give Up on Monday. The defeat was LNG’s third straight shutout loss. Team WE is sitting in ninth place in the LPL standings at 6-7 in series (46%) and 15-17 in games (57%). World Elite has lost four of their last five and two straight including a 2-1 loss against Invictus on Wednesday.

Prediction

LNG took the only head-to-head meeting against Team WE back in June of 2019, but this time around, World Elite is the pick to extract some revenge seeing as how LNG had dropped five straight while failing to win a single game over their last six games. Keep it simple and back Team WE to get the win to avenge their loss against LNG in their only previous meeting.

Pick: World Elite 2:1

Friday, April 17 at 4:00 PM 

JD Gaming vs. Dominus Esports

JD Gaming is is sitting in fourth place in the LPL standings at 10-4 in series (71%) and 22-10 in games (69%). JD Gaming has won five straight series including a 2-0 win over Rogue Warriors on April 14. JD gaming has recorded a mind-boggling four straight shutout wins. Dominus Esports is sitting in 14th place in the LPL standings at 6-9 in series (40%) and 14-19 in games (42%). Dominus has won three straight series and comes into this affair off a 2-0 shutout win over RNG on Wednesday.

Prediction

This one looks like it’s going to be an all-out thriller, but in the end, I’m going with JD Gaming to extract some revenge for their 2-1 loss against Dominus on July 21 of last year. JD Gaming is playing lights out and hasn’t allowed an opponent to win a game in their last three series.

Pick: JD Gaming 2:1

Friday, April 17 at 6:00 PM

Edward Gaming vs. Invictus Gaming

  • Edward Gaming +150
  • Invictus Gaming -222

Edward Gaming is sitting in sixth place in the League of Legends LPL standings at 9-5 in series (64%) and 22-14 in games (61%) Edward Gaming has won seven of their last 10 matches and comes into this affair off a 2-0 shutout win over Oh My God! On Thursday.

Invictus Gaming is sitting in first place in the LPL standings at a stellar 12- in series (86%) and 24-10 in games (71%). Invictus Gaming has won two straight and four of their last five series including a 2-1 win over World Elite on Thursday.  Invictus has won six of their last 10 matches overall.

Prediction

This matchup looks like another flat-out thriller. Edward Gaming is playing lights out right now, but Invictus has been playing very well coming into this affair as well. In the end, I’m going with league-leading Invictus to send a message in this affair that all roads to the Spring LPL title will go through them.

Pick: Invictus 2:1

eSports Betting: League of Legends LCK Apr 15 2020 Matches

Gaming is a lot like sports in that it has a worldwide appeal and a lot of people interested in beating other players. With the majority of major games allowing players to go head to head with players from all over the world, it’s not real surprise that professional leagues began to develop. The next obvious step was to allow wagering on those leagues, which is where we are now. League of Legends is one of the most popular games in the world, while also having one of the largest professional eSports setups, with regional leagues operating all over the world. The league that we are going to focus on today is the LCK, which is based on Korea. It is a 10-team league that has a fantastic battle going on at the top of the table, so let’s take a closer look at the 3 games on the schedule for Wednesday, April 15 and their corresponding League of Legends Odds.

eSports League of Legends LCK Apr 15 Matches

Gen.G (-232) Vs kt Rolster (+156) – 2 AM EST Start

As we mentioned at the top of this piece, there is a fantastic battle going on for top spot in the LCK, with no less than 3 teams all tied up with a 13-4 record. Gen.G are one of the teams in that group, but they will be more than a little disappointed that they are not clear at the top, with a surprising 2-1 loss to Hanwha Life Esports coming in their last game. They will be looking to bounce back from that and hopefully stay on pace with the other 2 teams tied for 1st. This will not be an easy one for Gen.G, though, as they are up against a kt Rolster team sitting in 4th with a 10-7 record. They are on a nice run right now, winning back to back matches ahead of this one. This matchup may require all 3 games, but I am on Gen.G to get back to winning ways.

T1 (-588) Vs Afreeca Freecs (+326) – 4 AM EST Start

Given the tight nature of the standings at the top of the League of Legends LCK, the teams involved really cannot afford to have any sort of letdown or day off, which is what we saw with Gen.G in their last game. It will be T1 who are looking to protect their current standing as they look to pick up their 14th win of the spring season on Wednesday morning. They are also coming off a loss, although their 2-0 defeat at the hands of kt Rolster was perhaps not quite that shocking. Next up for T1 is a best of 3 matchup against Afreeca Freecs, who are in the bottom half of the league with a 7-10 record. I just don’t see T1 losing back to back games.

DAMWON Gaming (-333) vs SANDBOX Gaming (+211) – 7 AM EST Start

It is beginning to look obvious that the #1 seed heading into the playoffs is going to be contested by the 3 teams currently sharing the lead in the LCK. With 5 teams heading into the postseason, that means that there are only 2 spots left to snag, with DAMWON having a real shot at landing one of them. They are currently sitting at 8-9 on the season, which has them in 5th in the LCK. With this being the final game of the regular season, a win over SANDBOX (5-12) would see them clinch a playoff spot. This is a game that you would expect DAMWON to win.

eSports Betting: Counter Strike LOOT.BET Season 6 April 15 2020 Matches Odds

With that thought in mind and LOOT.BET season six moving right along, let’s find out where the best value lies for Counter Strike Global Offensive (CS: GO) betting betting buffs everywhere.

Gambit Youngsters vs. EndPoint

AWednesday, April 15, 2020

Gambit Youngsters has managed to win just two of their last five matches, but come into this affair riding a two-match losing streak after falling to forZe 2-0 on April 10 and then losing to Virtus Pro 2-1 later that same day. Gambit is sitting in a six-way tie for seventh place in Group A at 1-1.

EndPoint has won three of their last five matches and come into this matchup riding a two-match winning streak that includes a 2-0 win over OFFSET on Monday, followed up by a 2-1 win over Vexed later that day. EndPoint is also tied for seventh place in Group A at 1-1.

Prediction

While the Gambit Youngsters are the favorite in this affair, I like EndPoint for the big upset, seeing as how these two rivals have identical records, but EndPoint is playing much better coming into this one. I love the value that the underdog is offering in this affair, so I say go with EndPoint to get it done.

Pick: EndPoint 2-1

Team Secret vs. Illuminar

Wednesday, April 15, 2020

Team Secret has won four of their last five, but they had their four-match winning streak snapped in their narrow 2-1 loss to Winstrike on April 10. Team Secret is sitting in a six-way tie for seventh place in Group A at 1-1.

Illuminar has lost four of their last five matches including a 1-0 loss to Reason in their ESEA MDL Season 33 showdown on Monday. Like their opponents in this affair, Illuminar is tied for seventh place in Group A at 1-1.

Prediction

It’s easy to see why Team Secret is the big favorite in this affair with these two rivals sporting polar opposite records over their last five matches. Despite the fact that these two have identical 1-1 records at the moment, Team Secret is clearly the more cohesive team and their recent play tells me they’ll be fired up to get back in the win column after taking a big loss the last time out. Keep it simple and back the favorite in this one!

Pick: Team Secret 2-1

eSports League of Legends LDL Apr 15 Matches

The world of eSports is growing at an amazing rate and there is good reason to believe that the current COVID-19 situation is going to make it more popular than ever. Prior to the sports lockdowns across the globe, there were a lot of people unaware at the sheer scale of eSports, but you can bet that they are all aware now. League of Legends is perhaps the biggest game of all in terms of professional gaming, and it even has a developmental league that is akin to the second tier we see in major sports. The LDL contains 26 different teams, making it one of the biggest out there, and they saw their spring season get underway on April 14. We are going to take a look ahead at the games scheduled for Wednesday, April 15, but be aware that these games are a little tougher to handicap with all of these teams set to play their season opener. Without further ado let’s check the League of Legends Odds.

eSports League of Legends LDL Apr 15 Matches

87 Vs WanZhen Esports Club – 3 AM EST Start

All we can really do here is take a look at how things played out in the 2019 summer league in hopes of making t easier to make selections for each game. The first thing that we see is that WanZhen are the newest addition to the LDL, which means that we really have very little to go on in terms of performance. On the flipside, we do have some information to share about 87, as they took part in both the spring and summer leagues back in 2019. Oddly enough, they ended with the same record in both leagues, finishing 15th with a 12-12 record. They will be looking to take a step forward this season, and I like them to get things off to a positive start with a win over the new team in the LDL.

Triumphant Song Gaming Vs Invictus Gaming Young – 3 AM EST Start

2019 -proved to be a bit of an up and down year for TSG, as they followed up a positive spring showing with a poor summer outing. They finished 14-10 in the spring league before falling in the playoffs to the FunPlus Phoenix Blaze. That was followed by a 9-15 season in the summer. Invictus look to be one of the strongest teams in the league, going 17-7 in the 2019 spring league, followed by a championship winning season in the summer. With that in mind, Invictus should get the win here.

LinGan E-sports Vs Legend Esport Gaming – 5 AM EST Start

LinGan finished with a winning record in each of their 2019 seasons. They began with a 13-11 record in spring, which left them in 13th and out of the playoff picture. The summer league was better for them, as they finished 16-8 on the season before going out early in the playoffs. It was a similar story for Legend, who landed on top of the league in spring with a 19-5 record, only to fall apart in the playoffs. They went 14-10 in summer with a similar early exit in the postseason. A good matchup here, but I am on Legend to win.

Suning-S Vs All Combo – 5 AM EST Start

Suning-S are a team that got a whole lot better as the year progressed in 2019 and who must be coming into this season feeling good about their chances. They went 6-18 in spring, but they made a big leap in the summer league, going 13-11 to sneak into the playoffs, where they ended up in the money in 3rd. All Combo are another new addition to the LDL, so you have a feeling that they might have a tough time getting up to speed. I am taking Suning-S in this one.

eSports Betting: Counter Strike Home Sweet Home Cup April 15 2020 Matches

Sure, you might be stuck in the house without professional sports because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic that has swept the globe, but thanks to the exploding universe that is esports, you can still get your fill of thrilling betting action. Thanks to Esports data providers GRID and Relog, you’re going to have a ton of chances to potentially cash in on a bunch of Counter Strike Global Offensive (CS:GO) matches thanks to the 2020 #HomeSweetHome tournament that is going down right now. With Week 2 rolling right along, let’s find out which teams are offering the best Counter Strike betting lines.

Sprout vs. forZe

Sprout has won four of their last five matches including a 2-1 win against Heretics on Monday. forZe has won three of their last five matches, but they come into this affair off a narrow 2-1 loss against Team Spirit on April 11. When it comes to the head-to-head meetings between these two rivals, they’ve alternated wins and losses over their last five meetings, with forZe picking up a 2-0 shutout win the last time they met on Nov. 25 of 2019.

Prediction

With these two rivals alternating wins and losses over the last five meetings and forZe winning the last time they met, I guess it’s time for Sprout to get back in the win column. Not only is Sprout ‘due’ for the win in this one, but they’re definitely playing better right now and that’s what I’m going with the favored Sprout to get it done!

Pick: Sprout 2-1

Japaleno vs. Nordavind

Japaleno has managed to win just two of their last five matches, but they’ve dropped three straight coming into this affair, including a pair of 2-0 shutout losses against Sprout, most recently, on April 10. Nordavind has also dropped three of their last five matches, but they did manage to snap a three-match slide by subduing AGO 2-1 on April 11.

When it comes to the head-to-head meetings between these two, Japaleno has won both all-time meeting via 2-0 shutouts, most recently on March 19.

Prediction

While these two have both gone 2-3 over their last five matches, I like Nordavind to pick up the big upset in this affair. I know Japaleno has won both all-time meetings, but they’re also riding an ugly losing streak into this one and I suspect Nordavind will be out for revenge in this one!

Pick: Nordavind 2-1

eSports Betting: League of Legends LPL Matches Odds : April 15

The spring leagues for the League of Legends are all now heading into the final stages before the playoffs, which means that it’s all to play for coming down the stretch. For those of you who may not be aware, the LOL is split into a number of regional divisions, as well as some secondary leagues, with each of those leagues playing independently. The LPL is the main league in China, and it is now in its final week of the spring season. The top 8 teams in the 17-team league will be heading to the playoffs, with the battle for those spots looking as though it is going to go all the way down to the wire. Let’s take a look ahead to the 3 games on the schedule for Apr 15. There are playoff implications to be found here, so some very big games to come and League of Legends Odds.

eSports League of Legends LPL Apr 15 Matches

Oh My God (+195) Vs Edward Gaming (-303) – 3 AM EST Start

This is one of the bigger games on the schedule this week, as it features a pair of teams fighting for their playoff lives. Oh My God are the last team in at the moment, sitting at 7-7 on the season, which leaves them down in the #8 spot. They are far from safe, though, with Team WE sitting right below them at 6-6. You feel that this is more of a must win game for them than for Edward Gaming, who are up in the #6 spot at 8-5. A win for Edward in this one would almost certainly clinch them a spot in the playoffs, but it could also potentially move them up in the standings. A big game for both teams, but I’m giving the slight edge to Edward Gaming.

Royal Never Give Up (-476) Vs Dominus Esports (+281) – 6 AM EST Start

With the LPL regular season winding down, the battle is now on for positions and a playoff bye in the opening round. The top 4 teams in the league receive those byes, with the top 2 going to the semi-finals, while the 3 and 4 seeds head into the quarterfinals. Royal Never Give Up are 2 wins off the pace being set by the top 4 with an 8-6 record on the season, so they look to be heading to the first round. Next up for them is a matchup against Dominus, who are down near the bottom of the league at 5-9 and basically now just looking to play the role of spoiler. I don’t see them doing that here, though, as I think Royal Never Give up take one step, closer to the spring playoffs.

Invictus Gaming (-434) Vs Team WE (+258) – 8 AM EST Start

Barring a major collapse in their final games of the season, Invictus Gaming look as though they are going to have a rather clear path to the semi-finals of the LPL. They are currently sitting at the top of the league with an 11-2 record and are essentially the team to beat right now. They are coming into this one as a rather heavy favorite against Team WE, who still have a shot at making the playoffs. They are at 6-6 right now and are in 9th, with the top 8 moving on to the postseason. WE really need a win here, but I just don’t see it happening against the best team in the league.
