Just recently, Singapore Sports Hub opened in the country to provide a professional esports training facility for aspiring esports players residing in the country. This is proof that the country is now considering esports as a way to boost tourism and to promote the country globally. With that, one can also say that esports betting, particularly Overwatch betting, will be popular in no time. To prepare you for the inevitable, here are the latest updates you need to know about the Overwatch League, the official and premier competition dedicated to Overwatch.
Teams Dominating the Rankings
The teams dominating the rankings this season and in the recent stage are the Vancouver Titans (5-0), San Francisco Shock (5-0), Los Angeles Gladiators (6-0), and the New York Excelsior (5-1). However, these top 4 seeders didn’t play in Week 4. All the aforementioned teams are safe and have a good track record, but Seoul Dynasty and London Spitfire are trying to follow their steps. So make sure to manipulate your Overwatch match betting predictions before all teams finished their games.
Seoul Dynasty was successfully keeping up with the current meta, boasting off their team chemistry, coordination, and timing with the help of their star players Baek “Fissure” Chan-hyung and Kim “Fleta” Byung-sun. Meanwhile, London Spitfire has a 5-1 record. They’ve defeated the Dallas Fuel in the recent stage, and they continued their winning streak until the end. Their star players who executed stellar performance are DPS superstar Jun-Young “Profit” Park and flex tank Jun-Ho “Fury” Kim.
Teams Confirmed for the Playoffs
Regardless of the current standings, there are teams that are already guaranteed a playoff spot. We only have one week left before Stage 2 ends, after all. Five teams have secured their slots. These are: L.A. Gladiators, San Francisco Shock, Vancouver Titans, New York Excelsior, and London Spitfire. Mathematically, the remaining teams who will vie for the remaining slots are L.A. Valiant, Guangzhou Charge, Washington Justice, Houston Outlaws, and Florida Mayhem.
With the stages and maps left, Dallas is one of the top picks to make it to the playoffs. They had a lively and impressive performance at their Dallas Homestand games. Meanwhile, their opponent, Florida Mayhem, will most likely struggle due to map differentials.
To make accurate Overwatch predictions, make sure to follow the remaining games before Stage 2 and the stage itself. See if the remaining teams still have a chance to compete at the playoffs.
