With quite a few matches slated for today, it could be a bit challenging deciding on the best bet for the day.
On the other hand, what defines a good bet? It’s one you win. And that said, the bet for today is surely Cloud9’s match against Luminosity gaming.
We’ll give you a rundown on all the matches today, but Cloud9’s is really the match to bet on.
Natus Vincere vs mousesports
Match 1 takes place at 13:00 EDT, October 7. That’s 19:00 CEST.
Match 2 is at 14:10 EDT, October 7. That’s 20:10 CEST.
Natus Vincere currently stands 22nd in the global rankings with a 43% win-rate as of September, and a 50% win-rate for this month. Mousesports stands 12th in the global rankings and have a win-rate of 41% in September, as compared to 60% in this month. Both these teams are pretty much equal in skill and capability.
Betting on this pair is not a good idea, since they play with no consistency. Sometimes it looks like they win – or lose – purely by chance. This will be their first encounter since they made changes to their rosters.
Fnatic vs Astralis
Match 1 takes place at 15:20 EDT, October 7. That’s 21:20 CEST.
Match 2 is at 16:30 EDT, October 7. That’s 22:30 CEST.
Fnatic is leading the League Ladder. But in just 4 days of lethal combats Astralis has moved to take the number 2 spot. Not only this, but Astralis is currently leading globally, while Fnatic ranks 10th. Fnatic and Astralis both had a win-rate of 60% in September. And by losing 3 out of 4 matches this month, Fnatic has a win-rate of just 20%. Compare that with Astralis’ win-rate of 75% this month. Astralis has also managed to win a match against the redoubtable FaZe Clan.
If Astralis wins these matches against Fnatic, Fnatic will drop to second place. So remember, though this seems to be a balanced match, ‘The Force is Strong’ with Astralis.
The odds are 1/2 on Astralis!

Match 1 takes place at 19:00 EDT, October 7. That’s 01:00 CEST, October 8.

This shows that Luminosity does not stand a chance against Cloud9. This is a great match to bet on.
