Last day of the ESL One Los Angeles 2020 - Online group stage for China and North American. Here are some interesting matches for Wednesday. Matches that will determine final group rankings.
EHOME +1.5 @ 1.81
The last two matches between those two teams ended up in the favour of Vici Gaming. Vici took both matches 2-0. However, EHOME is a really interesting team. They are looking decent at ESL One Los Angeles online league. They have taken at least one map from each team in this group. Vici Gaming is their last match and I do believe they can take a map of Vici Gaming too, who are the favourites going into this clash. Both teams have 2 wins and 2 losses for now.
Newbee +1.5 @ 1.50
Their last 3 clashes ended up in the favour of RNG, all 3 with 2-0 results. RNG is holding 1st place in the group without a loss. They have 4 wins from 4 matches. On the other side, Newbee is holding 2nd place in the rankings, with 3 wins and 1 loss. Surprisingly they have lost vs EHOME, but it was a close 1-2 loss. Newbee is the team who impressed me the most in this group, and I do believe handicap bet is a good way to go here. RNG are big favourites if you want to bet on a winner as they showed incredible performance until now. Odds on this handicap bet are little bit higher than on the money line on RNG. Make your choice!
PSG.LGD @ 1.30
This is the safest bet you can do here, as Invictus Gaming really disappointed us in this tournament. They are convincingly holding last place in this group with 4 losses and 0 maps won on the way. PSG.LGD is an obvious choice here. I would skip handicap bets here since Invictus Gaming has nothing to play for anymore. They won’t try because they can’t advance anymore. Odds are lower, yes, but PSG.LGD needs a win here, and in that situation they will have the same score as the loser of EHOME / Vici. They might pull through because the map wins. We will see what will happen. Interesting scenario. 2-0 for PSG.LGD possible.
CR4ZY +1.5 @ 1.59
You could notice in previous days I do really have high hopes for this CR4ZY squad. All scenarios are still open in the North American region. CR4ZY is holding 3rd place, but they need a win here to be secure. Quincy Crew is the only team who is sure to advance to the next stage for now. Could this be an opportunity for CR4ZY? I do think so. Quincy Crew has 2 wins and I must admit they really are playing nicely and are favourites here. However, CR4ZY must take at least a map here if they don’t want to end in last place, in case Business Associates win against Evil Geniuses.
Evil Geniuses @ 1.21
Yes, Evil Geniuses must win this and will win this most probably. But the question is can BA take a map off EG? Evil Geniuses have 1 win and 1 loss now, and they are playing with 2 standin players. Ryoya and BuLba are playing instead of Abed and RAMZES666. That makes them less strong than usual. Business Associates won only 1 map from 5 maps that they’ve played. They were really underperforming. If you want a safe bet here go for Evil Geniuses, if your odds are satisfying. There is a high chance that EG will take this with 2-0.
