Top eSports Betting Picks of the Week (August 28th, 2023)

League of Legends – LEC Season Finals 2023

Fnatic vs. BDS Esport

  • When: Saturday, September 2, 2023

The favorite in this is playing great. Fnatic has won 4-of-5. In their last, Fnatic beat Excel 3-2. BDS Esport has won just 2-of-5. So if BDS has won 2-of-5, why isn’t their larger odds gap? One of the reasons could be that BDS beat SK Gaming 3-0 in their last. Also, in the match before, BDS won a game against G2. The underdog can bite.

eSports Betting Pick: BDS Esport +117

MAD Lions vs. G2 Esports

  • When: Sunday, September 3, 2023

The underdog in this had lost 4 straight, but in their last, MAD Lions beat Excel Esports 3-0. The victory could be a sign that MAD is ready to go on a streak.

But although MAD should play well in this, they face one of the better League of Legends squads on the planet. G2 has won 5 straight. We’d love to go against the favorite but can’t.

eSports Betting Pick: G2 Esports -556

Overwatch League 2023 Summer Stage

Guangzhou Charge +117 vs Seoul Dynasty -169

  • When: Saturday, September 2, 2023

Neither squad is in great form, which is why Guangzhou is just a +117 underdog. The Charge is on a 5-match losing streak. So for sure, Guangzhou should be the underdog. Also, Seoul Dynasty has a single victory in their last 5.

Like BDS versus Fnatic, the odds imply Guangzhou should have a chance in this. But Seoul Dynasty beat Guangzhou 3-1 in the last head-to-head. Back the favorite to cash.

eSports Betting Pick: Seoul Dynasty -169

Shanghai Dragons vs. Sin Prisa Gaming

  • When: Saturday, September 2, 2023

Sin Prisa has won 2-of-5 and Shanghai Dragons have won 2-of-4. Neither team appears to have much of an edge over the other.

Sin Prisa offers the slightly better payout. Also, Sin has played just 4 matches since May 20 and heads into this after beating Shanghai Dragons 3-1 in their last. Backing the -101 choice makes sense.

eSports Betting Pick: Sin Prisa Gaming -101

Dallas Fuel vs. Hangzhou Spark

  • When: Sunday, September 3, 2023

Dallas is on fire. The Fuel have won 4-of-5. But before we can back Dallas without reservations, we had better take a look at who beat the Fuel in their last loss.

<>If you guess Hangzhou Spark, you're right. The +190 underdog in this took it to Dallas in a 3-2 game on August 5. Since the win, the Spark has beaten Dreamers twice.

For sure, Dallas can turn the tables, but laying -294 on the team that lost the last head-to-head is asking a lot. The odds on Hangzhou make the Spark an overlay.

eSports Betting Pick: Hangzhou Spark +190

Toronto Defiant vs. Washington Justice

  • When: Sunday, September 3, 2023

Washington has won 1-of-4, which makes the underdog tough to back in this game. The Justice aren’t just 1-4 in their last 4.

But Washington has lost 2 straight while the favorite in this has won 2 straight. Even if the Justice play better than they did against Atlanta Reign in their last, they will find it difficult to win. Back the Defiant to cash.

eSports Betting Pick: Toronto Defiant -244
