Top eSports Betting Picks of the Week (July 18th, 2022)

Dota 2

  • When: Friday, July 22, 2022

OG vs. Team SoloMid

European Union squad OG takes on U.S. based Team SoloMid at the Riyadh Masters 2022 on Friday. SoloMid is a big chalk to get it done against OG. One of the reasons is because OG has lost 2 straight. But before turning our backs on the dog, it’s important to note that OG and TSM are 1-1 in the two head-to-head contests. Also, the last couple of OG losses happened versus the same team, Liquid. The dog can win this.

eSports Betting Pick: OG +155

Team Secret vs. Team Spirit

Secret has lost 2-of-3, including the last couple of matchups to Outsiders and Natus Vincere. Spirit has dropped 2-of-5. Both of Team Spirit’s losses happened in contests versus Eternity. In the head-to-head, Spirit has a 3-2 edge in the last 5. But the chalk doesn’t figure to lose 3 straight. Secret gets the nod.

eSports Betting Pick: Team Secret -208

League of Legends

  • When: Friday, July 22, 2022

Rogue -172 vs. Fnatic +129

Before running into Misfits Gaming on July 15 and Team Vitality on July 16, Fnatic had won 3 straight. Rogue has won 5 straight. But although Rogue is on fire, Fnatic owns the head-to-head this year, winning 3-of-5. At the odds, the underdog is worth a look.

eSports Betting Pick: Fnatic +129

League of Legends

  • When: Saturday, July 23, 2022

KT Rolster vs. NS Redforce

KT Rolster is on fire, winning 4-of-5. The lone loss happened versus Kwangdong Freecs back on July 8. Since the loss, the chalk in this beat DRX on July 14 and Kwangdong Freecs on July 16. NS Redforce has lost 5 straight. Not only that, but KT has won the last 2 head-to-head. The favorite should win, but, eventually, NS Redforce is going to break the losing streak. The odds on the dog make them more than playable.

eSports Betting Pick: NS Redforce +176

BDS Esport vs. Astralis

BDS Esport is 0-5 in their last 5. Astralis has a single victory in their last 5. The favorite’s win happened versus MAD Lions on July 16. The chalk in this also won the last head-to-head on June 18. BDS offers decent odds, but the dog isn’t playing well enough to warrant a bet. Astralis gets the call.

eSports Betting Pick: Astralis -192

League of Legends

  • When: Sunday, July 24, 2022

Kwangdong Freecs vs. Liiv Sandbox

Kwangdong has won 2-of-5. The underdog in this will head to this on a 2-match losing streak. DK beat Kwangdong on July 14. Then in their next match, KT Rolster bested the Kwangdong Freecs. Liiv Sandbox has won 4-of-5. The loss happened in a match versus Gen.G on July 13. After losing to Gen.G, Sandbox bounced back with a 2-0 victory against Hanwha Life on July 15. The chalk takes this.

eSports Betting Pick: Liiv Sandbox -238
