Find out the results of the many esports tournaments and qualifiers that happened over the weekend. Tournament favorites head home early while underdogs claimed the title, League of Legends teams got their form back and looked like title contenders again, and the results of Week 1 matches of OWL Stage 2.
Mousesports is a Europe region team who succumbs to early elimination in tournaments most of the time. But now, they battled heavy hitter teams and claimed their first title of the year after winning the StarSeries i-League Invitational Season 4 this weekend. mouz got into form during the group stage after defeating SK Gaming and Cloud 9, in which they claimed a playoff spot after the elimination round. The European team defeated G2 and Team Liquid to grab a finals spot. They were pitted against Natus Vincere for the StarSeries title. After an overtime comeback in the second map of the series, mouz battled and won the series in the third and final map.
VP got back in shape after dismantling Vici Gaming inESL One Katowice 2018. Virtus.Pro now holds the top spot in the Pro Circuit Ranking after winning the major. They brought home a huge chunk of the 750 DPC prize pool, heading to The International 8 with a total of 4950 points.
In the North American League of Legends Championship Series, 100 Thieves and TSM grabbed back to wins after ending Week 6 with a winning streak. 100 Thieves started the Split with three consecutive wins, but they fell in the standings after a four-game losing streak. Meanwhile, TSM started the Split holding 9th place in the standings. This team is a favorite but has been in a slump since. However, both teams saved their season after their good performance this week.
The second stage of The Overwatch League began this week and we were able to watch top Overwatch teams go head-to-head. Earlier in the week, we saw the Stage 1 finals rematch of Spitfire and Excelsior, and this time, London still walked away with the win. Moreover, the Dragons are yet to claim their first win in the league, but their new additions after the break showed promise and competitiveness.

When you first start out you’ll be tempted to try to bet as frequently as possible, don’t. Wait for matches with good odds where you or the predictors know the teams. Never force yourself to bet, bet on matches that you are confident in. You may go days or weeks without placing a bet, you’re not in a rush, wait for bets you are comfortable and confident in and profit should follow.
If there’s any uncertainty, don’t place a bet. Save your skins for another day. There will be plenty of other matches that you can bet on.
Betting is always risky, that’s unavoidable. But staying inside a ‘safe zone’ will help cover you off from some really silly bets. When starting out with a low inventory, large bets placed on matches with 80%+ odds aren’t going to return much in general (on lounge, even less due to the inconsistent returns) but you’re still risking a large amount of your inventory for very little.
Equally, odds below 30% sound very, very attractive with huge returns possible. But if you don’t know the teams or all the details, it’s very possible the team doesn’t stand any chance. If you think there might be a chance, reduce the size of the stake or consider an ICB.
Always bet with a percentage of your inventory. Think, what happens if you lose an ‘All in’ bet, do you stop betting for the rest of your life, or just get your wallet out and go again? You may think there’s no risk, however there is always risk. If you’re placing a high bet, stick to an absolute maximum of 20% of your betting inventory.
Always leave enough to bet another day.
If you’re feeling angry or frustrated, your judgement get’s very cloudy. You’ll make a stupid bet and lose. If you just lost a big bet or are on a losing streak, instead of trying to force a bet, you should take a step back, calm down and just take a break, come back refreshed with a fresh mindset.
Betting blind is a purely relying on luck, if the underdog odds are 30%, that definitely doesn’t mean the team has a 30% chance of winning. It just means 30% of the betting community chose that team. A late roster change could mean there’s zero chance for the team to win. Check in with our predictions to help give you some more background on the game.
Use the lounge odds tracker to predict the final odds as the start of the match get’s closer. If the odds are increasing/decreasing for the team you intend to bet on the return may not outweigh the risk anymore. A huge significant switch of odds at the last moment may mean that something shady is going on, mostly in very low tier games, or a sudden announcement, E.g standin may have occurred.
Bookies will put up their odds based on their own expectations, as the bets start coming in they'll tweak the odds to ensure it's still profitable for them. That early stage is key to getting an edge on the bookies.
As soon as you feel like you have to bet again to recoup loses, you’ll feel compelled to make bigger bets with bigger risks. This often starts an endless cycle driving your losses further and further. Instead, after a big loss, take a day off from betting (or a week if was really big). .Keep to the proper bet sizing based on the risk of the match no matter what. You are not in a race to win it back, just take it easy.
Do not blindly follow betting site odds and think that they are correct to the true odds. If a betting site has ‘Team A’ as a heavy favorite, it does not always mean that it’s an easy win for ‘Team A’.
SK beat Na’Vi… Na’Vi beat E-Frag. That means SK can beat E-Frag now, right? No.
There are many factors which contribute to the team winning a match, these factors such as player performance, map selection, strategy and tactics which may not apply to other teams.
