7/17 LoL Betting Breakdown

After the last two weeks of LCS and LEC, I wouldn’t blame you if you just blindly bet every dog on the moneyline and call it a day. That was one of the wildest weekends I can remember in LCS last week and LEC the week before. I’m going to lean the other way. TheContinue reading “7/17 LoL Betting Breakdown”

6/20 Major League Picks

6/19 Recap: 6-8 for -3.15u Another solid day in LPL undone by upsets in LEC and LCS. Golden Guardians looked nothing like the team we saw last week and Mad Lions are much better than I expected them to be at this stage. I think I’m going to further scale back on those leagues untilContinue reading “6/20 Major League Picks”

6/14 LEC and LCS

6/13 Recap: 7-7 for +0.25u LCS and LEC remain very difficult to profit on. In best of 1s, truly anything can happen, but I do think we learned a couple things yesterday. SK and S04 should have been flipped in our preseason tiers. SK have played out two straight games as well as anyone inContinue reading “6/14 LEC and LCS”

6/13 LEC and LCS Picks

6/12 Recap (with twitter live bets): 2-8 -9.25u Opening days of the season are tough. It is very difficult to know what to take from SK and Vitality’s big upsets in the LEC. It is very difficult to know what to make of all but one of the LEC matchups going under and both theContinue reading “6/13 LEC and LCS Picks”

6/12 LEC and LCS Picks

With Best of 1s, the LEC and LCS have been the toughest leagues to profit on for me in the past. Bettors have to really pick their spots in these two leagues and vary their approaches. In LPL and LCK, I’m profitable on largely moneyline bets alone. In LEC and LCS, there might be twoContinue reading “6/12 LEC and LCS Picks”

LCS Betting Tiers

We are headed for one of the most wide-open LCS splits in recent memory. Team Liquid’s longtime stronghold on the league was broken in the Spring by an upstart Cloud9. The odds say this is C9’s split to lose. I’m not so sure. There were lots of factors that led to the last split beingContinue reading “LCS Betting Tiers”

LEC Betting Tiers

When a LoL bettor sits down to outline their strategy for betting futures in the LEC, they should ask themselves two key questions: “What are the odds for G2 to win?” and “What are the odds for FNATIC to make the final?” If you can find anything close to plus money on either of thoseContinue reading “LEC Betting Tiers”

LPL Week 1 Picks

There was a lot of turnover in the LPL between splits. I am not going to break down every roster move. Mostly, because that’s already been done here by Gelati of The Esports Department in great detail (keep in mind this was written on Monday, TeacherMa will be starting for WE) and is worthy ofContinue reading “LPL Week 1 Picks”

Mid Season Cup Final Picks

Group B and Semi-Finals Recap: 10-5 for +4.175u  Group B largely went according to plan for us, outside of Gen.G. IG picked the rarely seen melee range 0-10 Lucian, DragonX should have been favored against IG and Gen. G and showed it, and JDG largely looked like a top 2 team in the world. Gen.Continue reading “Mid Season Cup Final Picks”

Mid Season Cup Day 2 Picks

Group A Recap: 2-3 for -2.875u Last night was a reminder that in sports betting and sports, you can make solid, analytical, data-driven decisions over a long period of time and can hope that brings long term success. A random Thursday Morning in May though? T1 can decide to play like they’ve never played beforeContinue reading “Mid Season Cup Day 2 Picks”
