Esports Betting Tips for Saturday, May 2nd, 2020

Group A of the ESL One Road to Rio, North America ends today. Four teams are still left in the battle for three places in the next stage and they could all end up with the same record! Everything is possible and there’s no room for retreat, so I expect a lot of fun on Saturday.

That match I’m looking forward to the most is between Evil Geniuses and Gen.G. Their trajectory up to this point has been completely different and it’s interesting to see what happens today.

My Gen.G vs. Evil Geniuses betting preview goes through each team’s performance so far and explores the latest betting odds. I wrap it up with my prediction and a free betting pick.

Gen.G vs. Evil Geniuses Odds and Lines

  • Gen.G to win; +169
  • Evil Geniuses to win; -222
  • Gen.G (+1.5); -182
  • Evil Geniuses (-1.5); +142
  • Over 2.5; +102
  • Under 2.5; -130

The Gen.G vs. Evil Geniuses odds above are available at BetOnline. I decided to pick this bookmaker because of the high odds and limits. The other reason is the variety of betting markets available for the matches from ESL One Road to Rio. You can choose between 40 options for this one.

Gen.G – Fading after a Strong Start

The best match of Gen.G so far in the ESL One Road to Rio was the opener against 100 Thieves. The team’s performance was sublime and the momentum carried the squad to another victory against Triumph but it wasn’t that convincing.

All the weaknesses from this match were exposed further against Cloud9 in the latest round and now Gen.G’s place in the next stage is under jeopardy. The team has to rediscover some of its early form because the next opponent is no joke.

Evil Geniuses – No Room for Retreat

It’s safe to say that Evil Geniuses failed to deliver in the early stages of the ESL One Road to Rio. The defeats against Cloud9 and 100 Thieves put the team on the ropes and it looked like all hope to progress to the playoffs was lost.

Then came the convincing win over Triumph and suddenly, EG is back with a chance. The only road ahead goes through a victory today and based on the improvement in the team’s last match, I expect a strong performance today.

Gen.G vs. Evil Geniuses Prediction and Pick

  • Evil Geniuses (-1.5); +142

The momentum is with Evil Geniuses in this one, so my prediction is that the favorites will win today. In fact, it might very well be a clean sweep and the price of +142 for EG to cover the handicap of -1.5 maps looks like the best pick for this match.

It’s available at BetOnline but the odds of the other top esports betting sites on the market are not much different.
