ESL Pro League, Tuesday – Who should you Bet on?

At the opening of Season 6 of the ESL Pro League, Tuesday will see Hellraisers facing off against Heroic, and G2 Esports engaging FaZe Clan.

The matches will be at 6:00 PM British Summer Time (BST)… that’s 10:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time (PDT).

The teams will face each other again a little later in the day, at 7:10 PM British Summer Time and at 11:10 AM Pacific Daylight Time.

So let’s get down to assessing each team’s chances!


ESL Pro League, Tuesday – Hellraisers vs Heroic

ESL Pro League, Tuesday

These are two evenly matched teams, and we’re going to have to look at their past encounters carefully to decide between them.

Hellraisers and Heroic first clashed in Season 4 of the ESL Pro League, where they both won one round.

They faced each other again in 2017, in the European Minor Championship in Atlanta. That’s where Hellraisers won 2 out of 3 matches played against Heroic. They met again in DreamHack Austin 2017 where Heroic defeated Hellraisers 2-0.

They tied against each other with one match each in Season 5 of the ESL Pro League in Europe. Then in DreamHack Atlanta 2017, Heroic defeated Hellraisers 2-1 to enter the Finals.

If you reckon that up, you’ll see that Heroic have won seven matches in all, while Hellraisers have won five.

So where do you place your bet?

At first glance, both teams seem equal… but if you look more carefully, you’ll see that Hellraisers used to win far more often when they first clashed with Heroic, but that Heroic tends to dominate in more recent matches.

The two teams are balanced, but Heroic seem to have the edge. A very small edge. The matches could go either way, but Heroic do seem to be the surer bet, and the better team to place your money on.


ESL Pro League, Tuesday – G2 Esports and FaZe Clan

ESL Pro League, Tuesday

These are good teams, and the matches between them are going to be fairly epic. Let’s take a look at events where these two teams clashed in the past.

They first faced off against each other in Season 3 of the ESL Pro League in Europe, where FaZe Clan defeated G2 Esports 2-0.

FaZe Clan again defeated G2 Esports, winning 2-1, in Season 1 of the Esports Championship Series. In Season 2 of the StarLadder i-League StarSeries, G2 Esports defeated FaZe Clan 1-0.

In Season 4 of the ESL Pro League, FaZe Clan defeated G2 Esports 2-0. FaZe Clan again destroyed G2 Esports, winning 2-0, in Season 2 of the Esports Championship Series.

In Season 5 of the ESL Pro League, G2 Esports defeated FaZe Clan 2-0.

Then in Season 3 of the Esports Championship Series, FaZe clan defeated G2 Esports 2-0. The two teams faced off again in the Finals, where FaZe Clan once again dominated G2 Esports, winning 2-0.

So where do you place your bet?

If you look at the overall picture, FaZe Clan mostly dominates G2 Esports.

Of the 18 matches that these two teams have played against each other, FaZe clan won 14, while G2 Esports won only 4.

Our money is on FaZe Clan in these matches. Yes, G2 Esports are a competent team, but they have a history of losses when going up against FaZe Clan.
