Esports Betting Tips Monday October 5th

Esports Betting Tips: Monday, October 5th

5men vs Ninjas in Pyjamas

ESL One Germany 2020

5men and Ninjas in Pyjamas last met only a couple of weeks ago at the BTS Pro Series S3: EU/CIS, where we saw a close affair which ended in a 1-1 draw.

Their only previous meeting came only one day prior during the OGA Dota PIT S3: EU/CIS qualifiers, where 5men reverse-swept NiP to win 2-1 in yet another close match. Considering both of their last meetings proved to be extremely close, I have no issues saying we are in for another close affair this Monday.

5men are a 5-1-4 in their last 10, while NiP managed a slightly worse 3-2-5 record, however, had to face stronger teams so it's fair to rank their performances equally. Since there is not a lot to separate 5men with NiP, it would be reasonable to bet on NiP to win, however, the over 2.5 map bet is a much safer option as it's hard to imagine either team winning 2-0. Bet on the series to end with all three maps played!

Team Secret vs Tempo Esports

ESL One Germany 2020

I don't like to undervalue any team in the current online era of competitive esports, since we have seen way too many upset wins to be comfortable saying the favourites are guaranteed to win games. Having said that, I must make an exception for this match since the quality gap is so massive, there is little to no chance Tempo Storm will manage to upset Team Secret.

Team Secret are arguably the best team in the world right now - or at least in Europe - and their 16-game winning streak only further proves this is not a team you want to face. Across their last 16 games, Team Secret produced a phenomenal 35-3 map differential while facing some of the strongest EU teams, which only goes to show how strong this team is.

Tempo Storm, on the other side, are 6-4 in their last 10 games, which is still a solid result, but we have to consider they did not face any tough teams. Their only noteworthy wins across the last month came against Team Unique (2-0) and EXTREMUM (1-0), however, they also lost twice against Khan (0-1) and just a week ago struggled against Yellow Submarine (1-2).

Team Secret tend to run over weaker teams early on and close out the games as fast as possible, which is exactly what I expect to see this Monday. The -12.5 kills handicap for game one may seem a bit high, but in all fairness, Team Secret can easily grab the series lead with at least 20 kill lead. Bet on Team Secret to win game one with at least 13 kills to spare!

Team Secret -12.5 Kills


Team MagMa vs EHOME

OGA Dota PIT Season 3: China

Team MagMa and EHOME already met just over a week ago during China Pro Cup S1 where EHOME won 2-0. Despite their dominant performance against MagMa last month, there is a real possibility we might see a much closer bout this time out.

MagMa while not a team I would rank highly, have put up a few impressive results as of late, which includes a 2-1 win against Invictus Gaming last week. Even though EHOME looked even better in their game against IG (2-0), the match was much closer than what the scoreline would suggest, which is why I wouldn't rank EHOME's win over IG any higher than Team MagMa's.

MagMa won only one game in their last 10, but still forced Phoenix and IG to three maps, which are in my book decent results. EHOME, on the other side, are 7-3 in their last 10 and have lost games only to RNG and PSG.LGD (twice).

I'm not ready to believe Team MagMa can upset the in-form EHOME, but considering both sides have shown similar results this tournament, this match can easily end with all three maps played. I must also mention EHOME still have one more game to play before this one, so they might be a bit fatigued. Bet on over 2.5 maps!
