Betting Tips for the ESL Pro League –

G2 Esports vs. North, and Team EnVyUs vs. Hellraisers

The first round will take place at 18:00 British Summer Time, which is 10:00 Pacific Daylight Time. The second round follows shortly afterwards at 19:10 BST, which is 11:10 PDT.


G2 Esports vs. North

North has defeated G2 Esports twice, in Season 5 of the ESL Pro League, and once in the ELEAGUE Major this year. It was only in the Finals of that event that G2 Esports bounced back to defeat North.

Betting Tip: We tend to favor G2 Esports. They are showing good form, and they’re a strong and focused team, so we look to a G2 Esports win in this match.


Team EnVyUs vs. Hellraisers

These two teams have fought each other in match after match.

Betting Tip: Out of 26 matches played against each other, Team EnVyUs has wiped the floor with Hellraisers in 19. Our money would be on Team EnVyUs for this match.


The next set of matches are…

Astralis vs. Heroic, and BIG vs. FaZe Clan

The first round will take place at 20:00 British Summer Time, which is 12:20 Pacific Daylight Time. The second round follows shortly afterwards at 21:30 BST, which is 13:30 PDT.


Astralis vs. Heroic

It could go either way. These teams have engaged each other in five events, and each team has won roughly half of the time.

Betting Tip: If you bet on this match, bet with the knowledge that it can swing either way, based on circumstances and pure luck. Astralis is in excellent form at this point, so they just might win.

One important tip, though – never in their history of encounters have these two teams ever tied a match. Don’t bet on a draw.


BIG vs. FaZe Clan

Betting Tip: Big defeated FaZe Clan in Kraków earlier this year – but with olofmeister from Fnatic now a part of FaZe Clan, that shifts the odds a quite a bit. FaZe Clan’s morale is high, and we expect them to power through to a clear win.


The next set of matches are…

Rogue vs. comPlexity Gaming, and Misfits vs. Luminosity Gaming

The first round will take place at 00:00 BST (Aug 25th), which is 16:00 PDT (Aug 24th). The second round follows shortly afterwards at 01:10 BST (Aug 25th), which is 17:10 PDT (Aug 24th).


Rogue vs. comPlexity Gaming

Betting Tip: While comPlexity Gaming is a team that doesn’t have the best record against top-tier teams, they do have an extremely good record against lower-tier teams. It’s highly likely that comPlexity Gaming will demolish Rogue.


Misfits vs. Luminosity Gaming

Betting Tip: This is a tough call, with the two teams having played against each other in four events, and having each won roughly half of the rounds. It’s just possible that the match will end in a tie, so that’s something you might want to bet on.


The next set of matches are…

Immortals vs. SK Gaming, and Renegades vs. Splyce

The first round will take place at 02:20 BST (Aug 25th), which is 18:20 PDT (Aug 24th). The second round follows shortly afterwards at 03:30 BST (Aug 25th), which is 19:30 PDT (Aug 24th).


Immortals vs. SK Gaming

We don’t have to say it – SK Gaming dominates. Out of the 19 matches that these two teams have played against each other, SK Gaming has won 14, and Immortals a paltry 5.

Betting Tip: SK Gaming could only lose if they underestimate Immortals, as top Pro teams sometimes do. This has happened before to SK Gaming when facing off against Immortals… and that within the last six months. If SK Gaming play a focused game, they have an easy win.


Renegades vs. Splyce

Betting Tip: In past encounters between these two teams, Renegades won 5 matches, and Splyce 2. Renegades tends to dominate their encounters. If they can keep that up, Renegades will win these matches.
