eSports Table For ESL Challenger Americas Bets
For this week, the eSports ESL Challenger Americas Bets make life less complicated as we have two matches to monitor on our schedule, but one gets that bigger eye. Even after, there are still all those upper bracket matches and more. However, the focus leans on Tuesday first.
As always, the eSports table for the featured matches on Tuesday is below. Always remember the best online sports betting news and picks.
This ESL Challenger League has plenty of arms (Europe, Asia, etc.). However, the Americas get the attention for us in this article.
ESL Challenger Americas Update
This ESL Challenger Americas features an Upper Tier and Lower Tier. Naturally, the two best teams in the group stage will automatically start in the Upper Bracket Semifinals. M80 went a sterling 14-0 while BOSS went 12-2. Meanwhile, the four teams in the Lower Bracket all went 7-7 or 6-8. They squeaked into this round and will not get demoted. Yes, these squads still have a shot at the Pro League.
With a $35,000 top purse ($100,000 prize pool), this Challenger League is a battle to move on to bigger and better events. These teams fight for a spot in the more prestigious Season 19 Pro League and the chance to win larger purses.
Again, ten teams remain out of the 24 that started. The playoff stage features all matches as a best-of-three except for the Grand Final (Best Of Five). Two losses mean you are out. However, winning early helps pave the way later. It is why these teams have quite an uphill battle ahead in the Lower Bracket.
ESL Challenger Americas Bets Have Been Mundane
MyBookie provided some solid early props again here. This ESL Challenger League started with a number of teams battling for that two spots to the Pro League. Now, there are a handful of teams left. That gives ESL Challenger Americas Bets potentially more options than usual. Competition has been sparse at times but among these lower-placed teams, action has heated up at times. Alas, among the top teams, results have been mostly mundane.
Yes, this tournament is one that is likely to go more to form except for maybe this Lower Bracket. Based on the current numbers, Badass Gaming and Fluffy Aimers would go at it again later this week to advance further. The eSports CSGO Online Betting will focus on their matches first. Keep in mind that there is two big favorites. However, no bettor is truly worried about them just yet.
Again, Badass Gaming comes in after a 7-7 Group Stage record. Mythic is 6-8 and a +160 underdog to boot. The concern with Mythic is that -32 differential. Among the four Lower Bracket squads, they have the worst by far. Even Take Flyte is a +12 in this department. Form is often key early here and the first map tells the tale often. Also, there have been a few more sweeps in the Group Stage than usual.
Not surprisingly, there are a few more props in the Americas portion. They are available quickly too. As a matter of fact, the correct score was up as early as late last week. There are correct scores and all the fun stuff. ESL Challenger Americas Bets takes an easy road. Picking Badass Gaming here is a solid choice.
eSports ESL Challenger Americas Bets Goes For Two
The eSports ESL Challenger Americas Bets goes for two on Tuesday. Okay, a better way of expressing this is the 2-0 Correct Score (the sweep). However, the number here is the same as that -1.5 Map spread (+140). Sometimes that varies very slightly but not here. The appeal is in the value. Badass fared well against Mythic earlier in the group stage matches and many expect kind of a runaway here.
Currently, Badass Gaming has greater than a 70% implied chance of winning their lower bracket match, the money bet is trending that way as well. These matches can go back and forth but considering Badass went from 60% to almost 71% is telling here. Even that Moneyline moved from -180 to -240. That does not seem like much but yet it is.
Therefore, this is why going for two and the sweep becomes an easier wager to make. Now, this always carries risk but that +140 number warrants a modest wager. These two teams have battled so far but Badass is one of those teams capable of getting further along in the Lower Bracket. Mythic kind of lucked into this position.
How About Getting Fluffy?
How about getting Fluffy in the eSports ESL Challenger Americas Bets? With Fluffy Aimers getting a crazy -230 Moneyline, looking at the alternative paths reveal some fun possibilities including the Over of 21.5 kills in the first map at -105. Instead, the first map Round 1 winner for Fluffy lies at -135. Also, the sweep option carries in at +135. Let us get sweep happy.
