Qualifiers are always a tough road to tread for any team that doesn’t manage to directly make the main event, and these ECS Qualifiers are no exception. The teams battling it out here are in for some tough matches, but, as with all qualifiers, this is an opportunity for members of the betting fraternity to increase their personal ‘bank’. So here are the top picks on the sixteen teams battling it out in the ECS Qualifiers today.
Top Picks – Team Refuse Vs TinderklubeN
Team Refuse are very effective among teams of their own tier. While their win rate was around fifty percent before their roster change, it has climbed to an astounding seventy percent since. The players on the TinderklubeN roster are actually no longer with the organization, and are merely co-operating for this event. The odds on Refuse here are high, at 1.83, because both teams seem equally matched, which is all to the good, because if you look closely, you’ll see that Team Refuse have a much better win to loss ratio where rounds are concerned.
Top Picks – Windigo Vs MANS NOT HOT
The MANS NOT HOT roster have played just twenty matches with their current lineup. They won twelve of those, and interestingly enough, three of those matches were against Windigo. That’s right, these teams have faced each other thrice this month, and Windigo lost every time, being crushed by MANS NOT HOT in Train, Mirage and Cobblestone with at least six rounds difference in each. MANS NOT HOT are going to win here, and with the odds on them running at 1.68, this promises reasonable earnings.
Fragsters Vs Nexus Gaming – Top Picks for a Sure Win
Fragsters replaced two of their active members with rtA and Bubski last month. This has had fairly good results, and they have won eighty percent of the matches they’ve played since then. Nexus Gaming, on the other hand, have just lost one of their players, equix. TheOne, one of Nexus’ former players, is now filling the empty spot on their roster. It hasn’t worked out too badly, with the team winning about sixty six percent of the matches they’ve played with this roster. However, Fragsters are a very dominating team in their own tier, and Nexus Gaming are unlikely to beat them. The odds are running at 1.33 on Fragsters, which are reasonable odds for what promises to be an absolutely sure win.
Sprout Vs LPSP! – Top Picks for a Sure Win
LPSP! have done reasonably well against other teams, but Sprout will decimate them. Sprout stand twenty sixth in the global rankings, which is light years ahead of LPSP! who rank ninety fifth. Sprout go up against top pro teams and give a reasonably good account of themselves, which is more than could be said for LPSP! They have also been very consistent in turning out good performances lately. The odds are running at 1.28 on Sprout, which is hardly exceptional, but a stake here will still put money in the bank.
