Predicting Winners for the ESL Pro League, Friday’s Matches…

There are some really interesting matches slated for Friday, and our betting specialists have prepared careful analyses that allow you the best chance of a win. Predicting winners for the ESL Pro League has never been simpler.


The first rounds on Friday evening…

Fnatic vs. Team LDLC, and Team EnVyUs vs. FaZe Clan.

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.


Fnatic vs. Team LDLC

Fnatic and Team LDLC are very old rivals. They’ve faced each other off and on since 2010, on an average of twice a year. They’ve fought 14 matches, of which Fnatic have won 16 and Team LDLC 12.

Betting Analysis: Though Team LDLC’s roster used to change too often in the past for the team to achieve true stability, in this match Fnatic will be playing without olofmeister… and rumor has it, with a new team-leader as well. Team LDLC could well beat them in this match, seeing as how they’ve done it in past events when Fnatic was much stronger.


Team EnVyUs vs. FaZe Clan

Betting Analysis: FaZe Clan used to outperform Team EnVyUs when they first began to engage each other back in Season 3 of the ESL Pro League. However, since then they have always fought to a tie in most events. Our money is on a draw for this match.


Predicting Winners for the ESL Pro League –

Natus Vincere vs. Heroic, and North vs. Team EnVyUs

The first round will take place at 20:20 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.


Natus Vincere vs. Heroic

Betting Analysis: Natus Vincere and Heroic have faced each other 4 times, and twice those matches ended in draws. There’s a good chance of a draw here.


North vs. Team EnVyUs

North and Team EnVyUs have had only one encounter so far, in Season 5 of the ESL Pro League, where North defeated Team EnVyUs by 2-0.

Betting Analysis: Remember that North also did comparatively much better overall in Season 5, coming in 2nd as compared to Team EnVyUs’ 6th place. North looks a clear winner.


Predicting Winners for the ESL Pro League –

Immortals vs. Renegades, and comPlexity Gaming vs. SK Gaming

The first round will take place at 00:00 British Summer Time (Aug 26), which is 16:00 Pacific Daylight Time (Aug 25). The second round follows shortly afterwards at 01:10 BST (Aug 26), which is 17:10 PDT (Aug 25).


Immortals vs. Renegades

Immortals and Renegades have faced each other in 6 different events. In the first 4 events, Immortals won flawless victories over Renegades, but in 2 more recent events, Renegades managed to tie Immortals.

Betting Analysis: If you compare their per-match win-rates, Immortals have a much higher win-rate. If you want to bet on this match, bet on Immortals… they won’t let you down.


comPlexity Gaming vs. SK Gaming

Both comPlexity Gaming and SK Gaming have a long history in Counter Strike, but their pairings are rare. These two teams have not faced each other more than 3 times since 2012, when CS:GO first came out.

Betting Analysis: comPlexity Gaming has never won a single match against SK Gaming… ever! SK Gaming dominate them completely. There’s nothing more to say. SK Gaming will be the clear winner… AND it’s going to be brutal.


Predicting Winners for the ESL Pro League –

The next rounds involve Counter Logic Gaming vs. Team Liquid, and Cloud9 vs. NRG Esports

The first round will take place at 02:20 British Summer Time (Aug 26), which is 18:20 Pacific Daylight Time (Aug 25). The second round follows shortly afterwards at 03:30 BST (Aug 26), which is 19:30 PDT (Aug 25).


Counter Logic Gaming vs. Team Liquid

This is a bit of a queasy one, as the two teams are evenly matched. Counter Logic Gaming has faced Team Liquid in 28 events since January 2015. Out of a total of 61 matches, Team Liquid won 36 matches and Counter Logic Gaming won 25. That’s a difference of 11 matches.

Betting Analysis: Counter Logic Gaming is doing well in the current Season. If you go by this, either Counter Logic Gaming will win the match, or the match will end in a tie. If you bet, bet on one of these outcomes.


Cloud9 vs. NRG Esports

Since 2016, when they first clashed with each other, NRG Esports and Cloud9 have faced each other in 12 different events. Cloud9 dominated in 9 of those, with 3 events drawn.

Betting Analysis: NRG Esports have never won against Cloud9… they might win a few matches, but never a round. The final analysis on this is pretty clear… Cloud9 are going to blow NRG Esports out of the game in both rounds.
