Esports Betting Picks for Monday, April 13th

The ESL Pro League Season 11 ended yesterday in both Europe and North America. That doesn’t mean we’re out of huge esports competitions this week, though. The inaugural season of Flashpoint is still on, as well as other interesting tournaments in various games.

On Monday, the focus of my esports betting tips and picks is on CS:GO and Dota 2. You can see my predictions and the reasoning behind them below, as I try to find the best esports bets for today.

Evil Geniuses (-1.5) vs. FURIA

  • Game: Dota 2
  • Tournament: BTS Pro Series: Americas
  • Starting time: 1 pm Pacific Time
  • Odds: -207
  • Where to bet: BetOnline

I open my list of esports betting tips today with the bet I believe is the easiest out there. The Evil Geniuses have displayed excellent drafting and execution to beat two teams in the BTS Pro Series: Americas already.

Their fast-paced style should lead to a comfortable victory over FURIA and the price of -207 is good enough for me. You can see more detailed reasoning in my Evil Geniuses vs. FURIA preview.

NiP vs. Unique Over 2.5

  • Game: Dota 2
  • Tournament: ESL One Los Angeles, EU and CIS
  • Starting time: 11 am Pacific Time
  • Odds: +102
  • Where to bet: Betway

Everyone expects Ninjas in Pyjamas to beat Team Unique today and while I can understand why, I don’t think it will be easy. Both teams already went through a couple of long matches during ESL One LA and I expect more of the same today.

You can get +102 of over 2.5 maps and this is the best bet for this match, considering what we’ve seen so far from NiP and Unique.

Gen.G vs. HAVU Over 2.5

  • Game: CS:GO
  • Tournament: Flashpoint Season 1
  • Starting time: 10 am Pacific Time
  • Odds: -103
  • Where to bet:

Next in my top esports picks for Monday is the Flashpoint Season 1 clash between Gen.G and HAVU. It’s really hard to separate the teams, as they have both displayed strength on certain maps during the competition.

That’s why I expect both sides to win their map picks and the match should reach the third one. The price of -103 for over 2.5 looks like a great wager here.

Additional Esports Betting Tips for Monday, April 13th

  • SKADE vs. FATE over 2.5 +128
  • Ambush vs. Turkey5 over 2.5 +104
  • Cloud9 (-1.5) vs. Orgless +120

I have three more esports betting tips for today, starting with an all-Bulgarian clash in the ESEA Premier Relegation Division Europe. SKADE looked much better during the playoffs of the Advanced Division and is the favorite here, but let’s not forget that FATE had a better performance in the regular season. It should be a close match and the odds for over 2.5 maps are too high to skip.

I have a similar sentiment for the price of +104 for the same to happen in the clash between Ambush and Turkey5. Both teams are inconsistent and I don’t see how any of them will close the match in two.

Finally, I believe that Cloud9 should be able to beat Orgless 2-0 in the Flashpoint Season 1 playoffs. The favorite has been steady so far and will be eager to bounce back after losing against MAD Lions. Cloud9 is still in it and looks like the best team in the losers’ bracket, so a clean victory here is the way to go.

Here are more details on some of the matches covered here.
