Top eSports Betting Picks of the Week (May 29th, 2023)

Overwatch League 2023 Spring Stage

Vancouver Titans vs. San Francisco Shock

  • When: Friday, June 2, 2023

After a couple of losses, both 3-1 matches versus the L.A. Gladiators and the Houston Outlaws, the Titans got back on track in their last. Vancouver beat New York Excelsior 3-1 on May 28.

The San Francisco Shock have won 2-of-5 but are on a 2-match losing streak. The Shock shouldn’t lose 3 straight. Also, the odds are right.

eSports Betting Pick: San Francisco Shock +128

LPL Summer 2023

FunPlus Phoenix vs. Ultra Prime

  • When: Friday, June 2, 2023

On May 29, Ultra Prime broke a 4-match losing streak with a 2-1 victory over Anyone’s Legend. Before the win, Prime had dropped matches against JD, LNG, Royal Never Give Up, and Rare Atom.

FunPlus has won 3-of-5. The second ranked League of Legends team in the world should have no trouble winning their second straight.

eSports Betting Pick: FunPlus Phoenix -200

Invictus Gaming vs. Ninjas in Pyjamas

  • When: Saturday, June 3, 2023

Invictus had lost 4 straight but in their last the slight underdog in this got the victory. On May 30, Invictus beat LNG 2-0.

Ninjas in Pyjamas is on a 2-match losing streak. Overall, the Ninjas have won 2-of-5. But although Ninjas in Pyjamas can win this, it's difficult seeing Invictus losing. The victory over LGD could start a winning streak.

eSports Betting Pick: Invictus Gaming -110

Top Esports vs. Edward Gaming

  • When: Saturday, June 3, 2023

In April, Edward dropped matches against JD and Bilibili. Before the losses, the chalk in this beat TT Gaming and Oh My God. In their latest match, Edward beat Ninjas in Pyjamas 2-0.

Top Esports has lost 2 straight. But the loss on May 31 was by a single game, 2-1 versus LNG. Both these teams rank in the top ten. So finding a winner will be difficult. The underdog offers the nicer payout, which makes them the play.

eSports Betting Pick: Top Esports +118

Oh My God vs. Weibo Gaming

  • When: Sunday, June 4, 2023

Oh My God brings a 2-match losing streak into this. OMG had won 3 straight before facing Edward and Bilibili. The good news if you’re looking to back Oh My God is that they won agame against Edward and 2 games against Bilibili.

Before a 3-0 loss to Bilibili, Weibo was on a 4-match winning streak. Weibo should bounce back from the loss with a nice win in this. The favorite is the play.

eSports Betting Pick: Weibo Gaming -133

JD Gaming vs. LNG Esports

  • When: Sunday, June 4, 2023

JD and LNG are on fire. LNG has won 4-of-5. JD has taken 5-of-5.

Most are backing JD because overall, the favorite in this is on a 12-match winning streak. All streaks come to an end. So will JD’s, but it won't happen on Sunday. Backing the chalk makes sense.

eSports Betting Pick: JD Gaming -278
