Today’s a great day to be alive and watching the Overwatch League, with an epic battle due between London Spitfire and New York Excelsior. While that match could go either way, we have lots of top picks on other matches in the league that offer good odds with minimal risk. While these two teams are definitely the most dominating in the Overwatch League, Los Angeles Valiant, with their recent defeat of Seoul Dynasty, definitely take the third spot.
Either one of these three could easily be the one that takes the hundred thousand dollar grand prize, so stay tuned as they battle it out in this round of the league. Los Angeles have just one last hurdle to surmount – they have to put down Shanghai Dragons, who currently stand in their way. That shouldn’t be difficult for a team that just did for Seoul Dynasty. Here are lots of good picks at great odds, so spread your stake around and pull in the winnings.
Philadelphia Fusion Vs Boston Uprising
We know that Philadelphia Fusion put down New York Excelsior, but then Boston Uprising did for London Spitfire. While both these teams from the Atlantic Division seem at first sight to be more or less equal, there’s actually a little bit of data here that skews the odds in favor of Boston Uprising. That’s the fact that Boston Uprising really have a map win rate that outclasses Philadelphia Fusion’s, and that’s always a significant point in Overwatch. Put your stake on Boston Uprising, and with the odds on them running at 1.45, this match really provides reasonable winnings.
Top Picks – London Spitfire Vs Houston Outlaws
This is really one of the top picks for today. Houston have a reasonable reputation, which tends to drive up the odds on London Spitfire, which would otherwise be quite dismal. Don’t be fooled by the higher odds, though, London Spitfire are just about the best team in the league today, and they’re going to win this one. The higher odds just mean higher winnings for Esportsranks bettors. Those odds are currently running at 1.44 on London Spitfire, so put a stake on them for a virtually sure win at good odds.
Top Picks – Los Angeles Gladiators Vs Dallas Fuel
If you’re looking for extremely good odds with a minimal risk factor, then this match demands a stake. The Gladiators are doing very well, having won four matches out of nine played. Dallas, on the other hand, have just two wins to their name, and one of those was against Shanghai Dragons, who really aren’t doing well. There’s little doubt that Los Angeles Gladiators are going to dominate here, and with the odds on them running at 1.74, this really is a chance to rake in the winnings.
New York Excelsior Vs London Spitfire
That brings us to today’s clash of titans. Seoul Dynasty, seen as the strongest team at the start of the league, went down repeatedly before these rivals. Each team has had an exceptional run in the Overwatch League, and now they face the inevitable showdown. This single match is going to shape the future of this entire event. But which way will it go? That’s difficult to predict, but London Spitfire do have a slim advantage here, in skill, strategy and player pool, and with the odds on them running at 1.90, even a small stake will garner very reasonable returns.
Top Picks – Houston Outlaws Vs Boston Uprising
Houston Outlaws are generally seen as superior to Boston Uprising, and each team’s performance in the league has been more or less equal. Both teams have won five matches out of eight played. However, Boston Uprising put down London Spitfire in week three, and that’s a fact that massively enhances their chances of a win here. The odds are running at an astounding high of 2.40. There’s a risk, sure, but it’s a lot less than those odds show, what with Boston’s exceptional performance against an all-but-invincible team. The returns are worth the risk.
