With Week 3 well underway, we would like to attempt a full match week betting prediction for the rest of the twelve matchups in the OWL this week.
First off, a nod to the New York Excelsior and the Shanghai Dragons for delivering on our betting predictions from last week’s matches. The Philadelphia Fusion managed to ruin our perfect score with a defeat by the Dallas Fuel. The Fuel empowered by some of amazing plays from Zachary “ZachaREEE” Lombardo and Richard “rCk” Kanerva managed to take over the matchup and take out the Fusion (1:3) bringing them to a 2W2L overall score in the league.
This week is well underway with the four matches that took place yesterday. We saw the Fusion bounce back from the defeat handed to them by the Dallas Fuel, and bounce back to a 3W2L score in the standings. On the receiving end was the Washington Justice who sadly are playing as predicted in our Overwatch League Power Ranking and are winless still since this season opened. In the second match the Boston Uprising put up an impressive game against the Seoul Dynasty, and we witnessed Min-seok “AimGod” Kwon showcase some amazing skills during the entire match.
In the third match the Florida Mayhem met the Guangzhou Charge in an attempt to bounce back from their defeat against the Hunters after an amazing opener of last week versus Fusion. But the Guangzhou Charge also desperately needed a win in order to get back on track after a 1W2L start of the season. Both of the teams battled their souls out all the way to OT, and ultimately the Guangzhou Charge won the match (2:3).
Finally, the San Francisco Shock had a lackluster win against the Hangzhou Spark. The Shock has rotated too many players for each matchup in trying to find the winning formula for this season, and they don’t seem to have found it yet. The Hangzhou Spark on the other hand continues their slump after an amazing Week 1, as things seem to be in a freefall in the last two weeks.
With the first day behind us. It is time to look at the matches waiting ahead this week as well as our predictions for the winners this week. (*The bolded out names are the predicted winners)
