Top eSports Betting Picks of the Week – January 22nd

League of Legends – LCK Spring 2024

KT Rolster vs. T1

  • When: Friday, January 26, 2024

Although KT Rolster has won 3-of-5, they’re a big time underdog against one of the top LoL outfits in the world, T1.

T1 has also won 3-of-5 with their lone losses come against G2 and Gen.G. The -1.5 chalk ranks first on the planet. T1 covers.

eSports Betting Pick: T1 -1.5 -127

DRX vs. FearX

  • When: Friday, January 26, 2024

DRX’s last win came on August 5th, 2023, versus Kwangdong. Since then, DRX has nothing but losses to show on their record.

FearX beat Fredit Brion but lost matches to Hanwha and KT. This matchups should be decent. DRX is due, and although we handicap a contest against Fredit on Saturday, which is also winnable, DRX starts the weekend with a victory.

eSports Betting Pick: DRX +132

Gen.G vs. Dplus KIA

  • When: Friday, January 26, 2024

There was a time when nobody could beat KIA. That’s not now. Dplus has lost 2-of-5. The good news if you’re a Dplus Kia fan is that both losses came against KT Rolster.

On Friday, Dplus, which still ranks second in the world, faces a scorching Gen.G side. The favorite is on a 3-match winning streak. The payout for laying the -1.5 is fair for sure. Go for the money and lay the games on the chalk.

eSports Betting Pick: Gen.G -1.5 +100

Nongshim RedForce vs. Kwangdong Freecs

  • When: Saturday, January 27, 2024

Nongshim’s lone victory in their last 5 came on January 17. RedForce beat DRX 2-0. Kwangdong had been on a 4-match losing streak. But in their last, the Freecs stepped it up, mowing down KT Rolster 2-1 in a nice upset win. Back the chalk to cash.

eSports Betting Pick: Kwangdong Freecs -159

DRX vs. Fredit Brion

  • When: Saturday, January 27, 2024

DRX’s form suggests they’ve got a shot to go 2-0 this weekend. It would be a stunning development considering how poorly they’ve played in recent matches.

Fredit is 0-5 in their last 5. The +114 dog ranks eighty-eighth in the world. DRX actually ranks in the top ten. So a form reversal isn’t out of the question.

eSports Betting Pick: DRX -152

Hanwha Life Esports vs. T1

  • When: Sunday, January 28, 2024

Backing T1 makes sense. However, the money is going to Hanwha. The +123 underdog has scored 3 straight victories, which is one of the reasons they’re only a slight dog in this.

Still, T1 looks to be revving it up. Give the chalk the nod but keep an eye on the action on the dog. If it continues to trend lower, following the money isn’t a bad idea.

eSports Betting Pick: T1 -164
