  • Betcris.com This week represents the halfway point of the season in the LEC. On Friday, we will finish the first half of the round robin system, and we will start the second half of the round robin on Saturday. So far, the story of the season has been G2. They have answered all questions about how they would fare with Perkz moving into the bottom lane in the affirmative. G2 are undefeated and two games ahead of everyone else in the LEC, and the No. 1 seed going into playoffs seems to be all theirs.   More

  • Betcris.com The first CS:GO IEM major of the season will take place in the Polish city of Katowice. Play-ins for this three week long tournament have already started, and most of the best teams in the world have come to knock off reigning champions Astralis. Team Liquid, FaZe Clan, MIBR, and Natus Vincere have been given the best shots by the oddsmakers, but many teams will get a crack at Astralis given the format of the tournament.   More

  • Betcris.com The new blood continues to dominate the LCK. Through the first two weeks of the season, three teams that were in Challenger last year (Griffin, DAMWON Gaming, and SANDBOX Gaming) are a combined 10-2 and all three are in position to make the playoffs. Griffin looks like a potential world champion with their exquisite teamfighting and solid individual play, while SANDBOX and DAMWON have been strong teams in their own right.   More

  • Betcris.com It’s the time of the young guns in the LCK. While veteran teams like Gen. G, KT Rolster, Kingzone DragonX, and Afreeca Freecs are looking like the game has passed them by, newcomers Griffin, DAMWON Gaming, and Sandbox Gaming have looked strong in the new meta. Griffin appears to be the team to beat, and both DAMWON and Sandbox are proving to be formidable foes in their first season in the LCK. All three teams are undefeated coming into these matches.   More

  • Betcris.com Team Liquid was the best team in North America in domestic play. Liquid won both the Spring Split and the Summer Split, sweeping their opponents in both finals on their way to their first and second split titles in their history. However, internationally, Liquid was very disappointing. They failed to make it into the knockout rounds at either the Mid-Season Invitational or the World Championships, while Cloud9 topped them by making it all the way to the semifinals at Worlds. This spring, Liquid are the odds-on favorite to repeat as champions, but others have a good shot at knocking them off.   More

  • Betcris.com The European region may have a new name, but G2 and Fnatic are likely to continue their run of domination. These two organizations combined to win 11 of the 12 EU LCS titles awarded between 2013 and 2018, so it’s more than a little surprising to see both teams with relatively high odds to win the first LEC title this Spring. They have the strongest rosters coming into the season, and one of these two teams is very likely to be crowned champion in April.   More

  • Betcris.com The first CS:GO Grand Slam event of the season will kick off at the end of February. Katowice, Poland will once again be the site of one of CS:GO’s most prestigious championships as IEM XIII 2019 is one of the first majors of the season. The expansive format will see 24 of the best teams in the world square off for a $1 million prize pool and the right to say they won a Grand Slam event. All the major players are there, and there will be multiple regional play-in tournaments to determine who else gets to join the party.   More

  • Betcris.com The fast and furious nature of the KeSPA Cup means that I’ll only have time to go in-depth on one semifinal match-up. KT Rolster and Gen.G are set to square off on Friday in a series that is a relative toss-up per the Esports betting odds. Gen.G are a slight favorite after a 2-0 victory over Kingzone DragonX, but KT are a beloved team that will see plenty of public action.   More

  • Betcris.com After a disappointing year of international results for Korean League of Legends teams, there was a lot of roster turnover. A lot of the old guard was pushed out of the region to make way for young blood and new ideas in hopes of reestablishing Korean supremacy on the global stage. This week, we will see how   More

  • Betcris.com It’s been a banner year for Astralis. The organization just made history as the first winner of the CS:GO Grand Slam, and that earned them significant praise from the entire CS:GO community and a million dollar prize. The Danes have won just about everything there is to win over the course of their history, and this has been their best year yet. This year for Astralis is likely to go down in the annals as the best year any team has had in CS:GO’s long history. That has them as odds-on favorites coming into this competition.   More

  • Betcris.com Viva Las Vegas! Some of the top League of Legends professionals from around the world will meet at the 2018 All-Stars event in Sin City this weekend for fun, gambling, and gaming. There will be an East vs West All-Star Showdown, various show matches, the first-ever 2v2 Tournament, and the event that has become the calling card of All-Star weekend, the 1v1 Tournament. In the fourth iteration of this event, 32 players from around the world will square off in a single-elimination tournament with bragging rights on the line.   More

  • Betcris.com One of the last major CS:GO tournaments this year will take place in Odense, Denmark next weekend. Sixteen teams will vie for the prize pool and the title of champions, but one team clearly has a better shot than the rest. Astralis have been incredible all season long. They have won seven events over the last seven months, and they have knocked off three of their four toughest foes here in the finals of all of those tournaments. Astralis are an all-Danish team, so they will receive the full-throated support of the crowd throughout the competition here, and opposing teams will have to overcome that advantage too if they are to usurp the favorites.   More

  • Betcris.com Eight of the best CS:GO teams in the world will meet in Arlington, Texas this week with hardware and a serious prize purse on the line. Astralis are the overwhelming favorites to win their third ECS title, and the CS:GO betting odds have moved in their favor since they were released. The Danes were originally -125 favorites to win the tournament, and they have since moved upwards to become -138 favorites. Everyone else is gunning to take down the venerable organization though, and it won’t be easy for Astralis.   More

  • Betcris.com The Esports season is starting to wind down. We just had the annual Esports Awards held in Europe last week, and League of Legends, Overwatch, and Dota2 have already finished their crown jewel events. However, it’s not over yet. There are still a handful of popular Esports going on to quench your thirst for competitive gaming, and there is a minor event this weekend in Atlanta.   More

  • Betcris.com The most prestigious League of Legends event of the year came to a close last week in Incheon, but that doesn’t mean the action has stopped just yet. Invictus Gaming’s win at the World Championships was the first ever for a Chinese team on the biggest stage in League of Legends. After a year where either Royal Never Give Up or IG won every major international event, there is plenty of interest in how LPL teams play League. That has led to added intrigue for NEST, one of the offseason tournaments in China, and many will be watching some of the teams that we didn’t get to see on the international stage duke it out.   More

  • Betcris.com The eighth League of Legends World Championship will come to an end with an exciting final match between Invictus Gaming and Fnatic for the right to lift the Summoner’s Cup. Interestingly enough, these two teams already met earlier in the competition with Fnatic taking two of the three   More

  • Betcris.com Western fans are ecstatic after the results of last week’s World Championship Quarterfinals. Three Western teams made it out of the Group Stage, and the expectation was that only one would make it to the Semifinals. Those expectations were shattered after all three Western teams won last   More

  • Betcris.com There have already been some pretty gigantic surprises at the League of Legends World Championship this month. Gen.G was one of the pre-tournament favorites after winning the title last year, but they finished last in Group B during the Group Stage and missed out on the knockout rounds. In their stead, Cloud9 (a team that was 100-1 to win the group prior the start of the competition) finished tied for first and nearly took down the group.   More

  • Betcris.com The most anticipated eSports event of the year is finally here. After a week of play-in matches to determine the final few spots at the League of Legends World Championship, the main event will kick off this week. Teams from China and Korea are heavily favored over the rest of the field, and the Western teams will look to show that the gap between the regions is closing. They are considerable underdogs in their quest to do that though.   More

  • Betcris.com Eight teams are vying for the last four spots in the League of Legends World Championship main event on October 10. For the teams that make it, they get to stay in Korea for another week and will test themselves against the best in the world for a shot at glory and a huge first-place prize.   More

  • Betcris.com Before the main event gets underway on October 10, the Play-In Stage will determine the last four teams at the League of Legends World Championship. These 12 teams are broken into four groups and after a double round-robin, the lowest team will be automatically eliminated.   More

  • Betcris.com In just a few weeks, the League of Legends World Championships will get underway. Familiar names such as SK Telecom T1 and Team SoloMid will not be there, but most of the usual suspects were able to qualify for this year’s competition. Korean and Chinese teams are at the top of the list of favorites. That’s   More

  • Betcris.com This week, four teams will be fighting for Korea’s last spot at the League of Legends World Championships. Two teams have already solidified their bids. KT Rolster won their way in by winning the Summer Split title over Griffin in an epic five-game series on Saturday, and their victory punched Afreeca Freecs’ ticket to Worlds as a result of cumulative points over the two splits.   More

  • Betcris.com On Saturday, Griffin will attempt to finish the impossible dream. Never before have we seen a newly promoted team make it to a split final, much less have a chance to win the whole thing. It’s been a season of firsts for Griffin, as the young team has captured the hearts of League of Legends fans from across the world. Now, only KT Rolster stands in between them and an LCK title and an automatic trip to the World Championships.   More

  • Betcris.com Who will get to Oakland to participate in the NA LCS Summer Split Finals next weekend? That’s the question we will answer this weekend when Cloud9 face Team SoloMid in the first semifinal match on Saturday and Team Liquid square off against 100 Thieves in the second semifinal on Sunday.   More
