2022 NCAA Baseball College World Series: Futures Odds & Updated Winner Pick

College

Texas was the oddsmakers top choice to win the 2022 College World Series the last time we looked at 2022 NCAA Baseball odds, but after nine losses already, the Longhorns (21-9) have fallen to No. 7 with Tennessee the new No. 1 in both the rankings and odds.카지노사이트

The Volunteers (27-1) were 20/1 when we handicapped the opening odds for the 2022 DI College Baseball season for you here at GSO, but Tennessee has lost just one game while Texas has been challenged and may have trouble even making the College World Series.

And the fans are coming to watch Tennessee play at Lindsey Nelson Stadium in Knoxville, so a buzz has been created in Knoxville, but the SEC schedule will be hard on 3B Trey Lipscomb (.379, 10 HRs, 44 RBI), as it always is for the Baseball-savvy DI conference.

Lipscomb said of his Vols who swept No. 16 Vanderbilt (20-7) from Friday, April 1 to Sunday, April 3 in a telling three-game series at Lindsey Nelson Stadium in Knoxville, Tennessee.

1 Tennessee Replaces Texas on CWS Futures Board

In Game 1 on Friday April 1, Tennessee beat Vanderbilt, 6-2, with the Volunteers winning Game 2 on Saturday, April 2 by a 5-2 score, before shutting out the Commodores, 6-0 on Sunday April 3 for the impressive sweep which saw Tennessee outscore Vanderbilt, 16-4.

Another SEC team and the team that we touted here, Arkansas (21-5) sits at No. 2 in the ESPN College Baseballrankings and there are six SEC teams in the Top 20 right now (#1 Tennessee, #2 Arkansas, #9 Ole Miss, #14 Georgia, #16 Vanderbilt, and #19 LSU).

SEC powers and defending national champions Mississippi State (18-13) have fallen out of the Top 25 and despite the Bulldogs returning so much talent, including Pitcher Landon Sims, 13 losses in 31 games and surviving the SEC may be asking too much this time.

No. 5-ranked Oregon State (20-7) is the only team from the West in the Top 25 with fellow Pac-12 side Stanford falling from No. 6 to not being ranked. The 2021 CWS included Arizona, Mississippi St., North Carolina State, Stanford, Texas, Vanderbilt and Virginia.

NCAA DI play began on February 18 and will continue until the 75th College World Series from TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha, Nebraska from Thursday, June 16, to Monday, June 27 (ESPN). The Regionals will be from June 3-9 with the Super Regionals from June 10-12.

Beginning next season in 2023, the College World Series will be returning to the format that it used from 2003 to 2007 with the CWS competition in Omaha beginning on Friday, June, 17 with a best-of-3 Finals the following weekend on Saturday, June 25.

There are 300 DI teams fighting to become national champions betting on College Baseball, MLB, as well as International leagues like KBO (South Korea), Central League (Japan) and Chinese Taipei CPBL (Taiwan) has never been as popular as it is right now.

SEC Conference May Have Three or Four in the 2022 CWS

The Big Orange have just one Loss (Texas) and the entire Tennessee Pitching rotation was just named to the 2022 USA Golden Spikes Award Midseason Watch List, so seeing the now top-ranked Volunteers playing in Omaha in June won’t be a big surprise to anyone.

No. 3 ranked Virginia (25-3) has been the best team in the ACC so far, No. 5 Texas Tech (24-6) the best in the Big 12, while Oregon State (20-7) has been the most impressive Pac-12 team so far and the Beavers look like they have a chance to make the CWS.

No. 9 Ole Miss (19-8) is okay, but the Rebels were swept by Tennessee and outscored by the Volunteers 26-7 in a three-game series in Oxford, Mississippi (March 25-27) so making it out of the Regionals and Super Regionals may be an issue for Ole Miss.

Dylan Lynch and No. 2 ranked Arkansas (+1475 to win 2022 College World Series, MyBookie) have also been playing some good baseball and Lynch hit for the cycle and homered from both sides of the plate as the Razorbacks continue to roll.

Arkansas plays very well at Home in Fayetteville and has a productive lineup with Peyton Pallette, Cayden Wallace, Robert Moore, and Lynch but getting by Blake Tidwell and the Tennessee pitching staff may be a hurdle Arkansas will have to jump at some point in June.

Drew Gilbert, Jordan Beck, and No. 1 Tennessee (8/1) will continue to roll—the Vols beat Iona, 29-0—and Arkansas and Tennessee will likely be in the mix with No. 6 Oklahoma State (20-8), No. 13 Notre Dame (16-5) and No. 18 LSU (19-9) possible being there also.

The Commodores lost Kumar Rocker and Jack Leiter to the 2021 MLB Draft, but Vanderbilt has studs like 1B Spencer Jones and SS Carter Young and will be a hard team to eliminate with that Pitching staff and now a Tennessee Sweep Chip on their shoulders.

Big 12 members Texas finished with an impressive 50 wins last season and Tanner Witt, Pete Hansen and the Longhorns are the only team to have beaten Tennessee so far, so the oddsmakers have it right and expect Texas to play a little bit better in April and May.

NCAA 2022 College World Series Preview, Betting Odds, Analysis and Picks

Betting

The stage is set for the 2022 College World Series with the eight Super Regional winners advancing on to Omaha, Nebraska where they will play a double-elimination tourney with schools seeded 1-8 to determine who the Division I Baseball champions are in 2022. 카지노사이트

Four of the eight teams who are in Omaha are from the Southeastern Conference (SEC), Arkansas, Auburn, Texas A&M, and Ole Miss, with one massive team missing the Big Baseball Dance, Tennessee, who was the top-ranked team with the best record.

But Notre Dame had other ideas, and eliminated the Volunteers in three games to advance on and make it seem like all eight schools could win this Tournament at Charles Schwab Field (Kentucky Bluegrass) in Omaha from Friday, June 17 through June 27.

The two Bracket winners will play in a Best-of-3 series starting on Saturday, June 25 (ESPN, 7 pm EDT/6 pm CDT/4 pm PDT) with Game 1 under the lights. Last year, Mississippi State won the national championship as the SEC shows its domination.

Final Eight Teams Begin Pursuit of 2022 CWS in Omaha

The other four teams making the 2022 CWS not from the SEC include the two favorites (4/1) Stanford and Texas, Oklahoma, and Notre Dame, who will come in confident after ruining Tennessee’s dream season before the Volunteers could even get to Nebraska.

So the Preseason #1 Texas somehow survived a shambles of a season and won the Regional and Super Regional and now have a chance to become national champs. But it seems teams like ND and Oklahoma have just as good of a chance and are a better value.

And being snubbed of hosting a Regional this campaign, Notre Dame from the ACC and Oklahoma from the Big 12 got some pleasure out of winning in the Regionals and Super Regionals with no Home edge and now have a chance to become DI national champions.

Oklahoma won the Big 12 Conference Tournament yet the Sooners had to travel to Gainesville and deal with #1 seed Florida in the Gainesville Regional, which also had Last Four In member Liberty and a feisty Central Michigan team playing in it. So a major snub.

The Sooners have more Wins vs. Top-50 RPI teams than everyone but Tennessee and North Carolina, so betting on them in Game 1 against Texas A&M on Friday afternoon seems worth a shot in what should be a high-scoring game (OKLA -135, 11o -129, Betus).

There were 300 DI teams fighting to be national champs and betting on College Baseball, is as popular as it has ever been and now after the Regionals, the Super Regionals, we have the CWS and a tough Futures market with all eight teams capable of DI diamond glory.

Beginning next year in 2023, the College World Series will be returning to the format it used from 2003 to 2007 with the CWS competition in Omaha beginning on Friday, June 17, 2023, with a Best-of-3 Finals the following weekend on Saturday, June 25, 2023.

Arkansas, Oklahoma, ND Looking Like Three Tough Outs

Handicapping the two Brackets and the opening games for all eight teams shows no easy road to the Final two next Saturday, but CWS veterans Texas (88-63 in CWS) and Stanford (41-30 CWS) are the tourney’s two darlings and also oddsmakers two favorites.

The Longhorns (47-20 in CWS) were the Preseason #1 and bookies favorites to win the 2022 College World Series, but Tennessee had a season for the ages —winning 31 of 32 at one point—before Notre Dame shocked D1 Baseball by eliminating the Volunteers.

Texas will have a tough opener on Thursday against Notre Dame (ESPN, 7 pm EDT/4 pm PDT; TEX -130, 9½u -135, Betus), and some games are better off just watched than wagered on and this one looks like it’s one of those games, although I lean dogs Irish.

In the other Friday game and the opening Game 1 of the 2022 College World Series in Omaha, Oklahoma faces #5 Texas A&M (2-12 in CWS) in a Big 12 Conference-SEC collision that sees the Sooners as -135 favorites (11o -120) over the highly ranked Aggies.

One somewhat hidden SEC team to keep your eyes on is Arkansas (43-19) with SP Hagen Smith, sluggers Braydon Webb and Brady Slavens (13 HR), and two great Relief Pitchers in Zack Morris and Evan Taylor on Head Coach Dave Van Horn’s Razorback Roster.

Arkansas (+550 to win 2022 College World Series) won the Stillwater Regional and the 1245 Super Regional and the Razorbacks will face #2 Stanford (46-16) on Saturday in what will be a tough Loss for one good team and the best matchup of the first two days.

When all is said and done, the rankings and seedings are meaningless now and the biggest reality is the absence of Tennessee, meaning there is no real clear-cut favorite and the team(s) that can get to 2-0 the quickest should be perceived as the ones to beat.

But simply winning the Bracket is the thing and Bracket 2 looks significantly weaker than Bracket 1, so two good teams from Texas, Oklahoma, Notre Dame and Texas A&M will be ousted from the 2022 College World Series making these Game 1s on Friday important.

Reignite Your Casino Passion by Focusing on Fundamentals

Casino

It’s fair to say that when many of us were first bitten by the gambling bug, it was love at first sight. If you’re anything like me, you dove in headfirst, and every move you made revolved around gambling.카지노사이트

I remember leaving my first poker tournament, heading to a cash game, then falling asleep on my couch watching late-night poker coverage. When I woke up the following day, it was immediately off to the casinos for more poker.

However, at some point, the fire began to die down. Eventually, poker became more of a chore than a luxury.

I had lost the spark. Fortunately, I had several more experienced gamblers who were willing to get me back on track.

I will share what they gave me and help reignite your casino passion by focusing on fundamentals. You don’t have to be a struggling poker player to benefit from what we’re going to cover here.

Get Into a New Frame of Mind by Changing the View

Often when a player starts to lose the passion for gambling, it’s a simple matter of burnout. Several things can set on burnout, but it’s usually a simple case of boredom.

Sometimes you can reignite your spark by changing your scene. So, if you’ve been logging hours at online casinos, get to a land-based casino.

That works both ways. If you’re spending all of your time in a land-based casino, try making a switch to online gaming.

You may find that the simple change of venue sparks your interest. The experiences are incredibly unique, with many players preferring one over another.

Still, it’s great to have some variety in your life. Players making a move to online casinos will appreciate the convenience and better rules for online games.

The players leaving the comfort of home for the casinos will be reminded of how much fun you can have by playing with other people. The experience might even inspire you to take in a show while you’re there.

Sometimes all it takes to reignite your casino passion is a change of scenery. But moving between online and brick-and-mortar casinos will offer two unique experiences.

Try Playing at Different Stakes

One of the biggest struggles I was facing was that the poker table had become so stressful that I couldn’t enjoy myself. I was in my twenties and didn’t have a ton of disposable income.

My poker winnings were a huge bonus, but I was leveraging an enormous portion of my bankroll for every session. That led to problems because I was playing too high of stakes to enjoy myself.

When I began playing, it was all $1/$2 games. I could comfortably lose a hundred big blinds and not feel sick about it.

However, when the stakes raised significantly, I had sessions where I needed a drink immediately after leaving the tables.

I lowered my stakes, began playing looser, and began having a blast. I was making more per hour on the $1/$2 tables; I couldn’t believe it.

Most importantly, I started enjoying the casinos again. I even broke up with my girlfriend because she started complaining about how much time I was spending on poker.

I’m not saying she wasn’t right to complain, but that’s wife territory, and we weren’t even engaged. I’m not suggesting you break things off with your significant other, but you could start a whole new love affair with gambling by changing your stakes.

Gambling is meant to be fun, and it’s hard to enjoy yourself when you are constantly stressed about money.

Stop Wasting Time Worrying About What Others Are Doing

I’ve seen a ton of gamblers inexplicably become obsessed with what other players are doing. This obsession can manifest itself in many different behaviors, but they all seem self-destructive.

Stop wasting time worrying about what others are doing. For me, this came in the form of always trying to stay current on the latest poker theories.

I always felt like I needed to be three steps ahead of the competition to have an advantage. That was a result of my inexperience creating doubt in my ability.

When you’re confident in your skillset, there’s not much need to worry about what other gamblers are doing. Focus on your own game and let the passion back into your casino gambling.

Reset the Ledger (Temporarily Is Fine)

One of the best ways to reignite your love of casinos is to stop focusing on the losses. That doesn’t mean you should completely ignore failures.

Instead, try resetting the ledger. Start at an even zero with the casino and see how you do for the next 30 days.

When you’re not having the joy of winning overshadowed by your previous losses, casinos can be a lot more fun. You can do this as a temporary band-aid, but eventually, you’ll have to face reality.

If you need to suspend reality temporarily to fall back in love with casinos, I’d say that’s an acceptable trade. You might even decide to wipe the slate clean and start over fresh.

That’s fine, but making a habit of it can decimate your bankroll.

Shift Your Primary Purpose

One of the fastest ways to fall in love with something is by changing your motivations. Many of us began casino gambling because it’s fun and exciting. Yet, somewhere along our journey, the focus shifted to money.

You can get back to the fun and excitement by focusing on those aspects of casino gambling. Stop worrying about the money for a while and enjoy yourself.

If you’re merely playing for fun already, try adding some purpose to your gambling. Learn the best strategy for your favorite game and work it into your sessions.

Changing your primary focus allows you to gain new perspectives on the games you love.바카라사이트

Mix It Up on the Floor and Try a New Game

The most straightforward approach to reigniting your casino passion is to play a new game. This strategy works for several reasons.

First, You May Be Playing the Same Games YouTried When You Started Gambling.
As we grow as gamblers, we need more from the games. So, you may have begun your career playing the slots for their lack of strategy or skill. But now you have many of the basics down and want to challenge yourself. Making a move to a game like baccarat won’t require much strategy and offers a much lower house edge. If you want to use an intricate system for every hand, you can pick up a strategy card and play blackjack.

Poker players have a ton of choices but limited table options in the casino poker rooms. Find a variant available in the casinos you play and start dedicating your time to learning that game.

Having a complete arsenal of poker skills is always handy. You’ll be amazed at how learning something new can ultimately reignite your love for casinos.

Stop Focusing on the Same Familiar Faces

A suitable method for shaking things up in the casino is changing who you’re often playing against. This tactic will most directly apply to poker players.

Most players hang around the same tables, leading to familiar poker circles. Things may become stale when you are playing the same games against the same people.

You can shake things up by getting out of your comfort zone and meeting some new people. That may require you to start playing in a different casino, changing stakes, or changing when you play.

You’ll reignite your passion as you try to prove yourself to the new crowd. You might even have more success in an unfamiliar environment.

Keep Your Ego in Check

The number one way to rekindle your casino passion is to stop taking yourself so seriously. It’s fundamental human nature for our egos to start believing that we’re better than we are.

I fell into this same trap early in my poker career. Luckily, I had a friend remind me that I wasn’t that good.

It stopped me in my tracks, but he was right. So, I set out with a new flame burning under me to improve.

That focus took me to new heights. We become complacent when we think we’ve arrived at the mountain top.

Keep your ego in check, and the love of casino gambling can return.

Conclusion

If things have begun to feel flat in the casino, you can right the ship with these tricks. Reignite your casino passion by focusing on fundamentals.

I’ve had a few times in my life where I’ve had to back away from my gambling habits and reassess. Each time, I’ve returned to the casinos with intensity.카지노사이트

Biggest CSGO Winners and Losers in the First Half of 2022

Casino

So far this year we’ve seen a number of AAA CSGO events. Heck, three of them had $1 million in prize money, with several more being hefty six-figure amounts. In fact, two Intel Extreme Masters coupled with the PGL Major Antwerp had $3 million in total. Out of the six biggest tournaments this year, we’ve had four different winners. Faze Clan won three massive titles which puts them in the CSGO winners’ basket, for sure.카지노사이트

But, this piece is not just about the winners. Several top-tier teams have been rather disappointing lately. Some have gone through massive changes, some through important roster alterations, and things just aren’t working out.

If you’re interested in CSGO betting, you need to stay on top of all things CSGO. Keeping track of the best and worst performance isn’t going to automatically win more bets, but it’s a great start.

Biggest CSGO Winners in the First Half of 2022

Here are five teams that have, in one way or another, made a positive difference in the first half of 2022:

Faze Clan
1st or 2nd depending on the IEM Cologne outcome
Faze Clan Logoare the absolute winners of 2022! They were dormant throughout the entirety of 2021 and are finally back. They’ve made a few changes, invested in young players, and all their hard work is finally paying off.

Last year, their best performance was a semifinal run on IEM XVI Cologne. In the first six months of 2022, they’ve already won three massive events:

  • IEM XVI Katowice
  • ESL Pro League Season 15
  • PGL Major Antwerp

Well, it all started back in January when they dropped olof from the starting roster and signed ropz as his replacement. This enabled broky to get more favorable positions and was enough to finally get Twistzz in proper form.

Ropz is not Faze Clan’s best fragger, but he’s doing a much better supporting job than olofmeister. Rain and karrigan are important too – their experience is often the deciding factor in key matches. They’re not the biggest clutchers, but their contributions are essential, to say the least.

ENCE
Jumped from 15th to 3rd
Next up, ENCE! The Finns did have a couple of solid campaigns last year. However, they weren’t nearly consistent enough. Even the titles they ended up winning were tier-B events. Against top-notch competitions, ENCE just couldn’t do much.

But, doto proved to be an inadequate signing so the org acquired maden from FPX in late January. This massively changed how ENCE played and brought immediate results. Just a month later, ENCE almost won Pinnacle Winter Series #2, losing to ForZe in the end.

This was followed by a series of exceptional campaigns ranging from Elisa Invitational Winter and Fantasyexpo EU Champions. ENCE ended up winning the title of the latter.

The pinnacle of their 2022 campaign thus far came shortly after the end of Pinnacle Cup III (pun intended). ESL Pro League was their big breakthrough – ENCE ended up second, falling short to Faze Clan who were just ramping up for the things to come.

Even though ENCE’s form over the last three tournaments (IEM Cologne, Roobet, and BLAST Spring) hasn’t been up to par, they are still considered one of the most consistent teams right now. They’ll need to put the effort in over the summer to come back stronger and hopefully contest for another good Major campaign… this time in Rio.

Movistar Riders
Jumped from 19th to top 10 for sure
The Spaniards are in top form right now. As I write this blog, SunPayus and the Movistar boys are preparing for their quarterfinal clash against Team Liquid. They’re coming into it as the slight favorites, which tells you enough about the form they’re currently enjoying.

The Spaniards had to take the long route to the IEM Cologne playoffs. They went through the entire play-in stage and finished second in their group following a relatively tight loss to NaVi in group A finals. Two wins against Vitality and a win against G2 tell you all you need to know, really.

But, since they’re still alive in the competition, it’s difficult to place them on the table. At the moment, they’re 13th, which is already a bit of an improvement over last year’s 19th place.

Cloud9
Relegated from 2nd to 4th
Cloud9-logoHow come we’re listing Cloud9 among the biggest CSGO winners here when their placement went from 2nd to 4th? Well, allow me to elaborate:

The situation with Cloud9 (or Gambit, since that’s the team we’re using as our base reading for Dec 2021 standings) is kind of tricky. You see, they’ve acquired Gambit which were banned, just like Virtus.pro, from competing under organizations associated with the Russian Government.

Obviously, all this commotion took a toll on the players. They didn’t lose anyone, the roster has stayed intact, but there was a lot of controversy surrounding the acquisition and seeing them still be a top 4 team means they’ve managed to live through the turbulent times.

Cloud9’s biggest achievement this year was IEM XVII Dallas title. It happened in front of their own fans, so it must’ve felt special. Unfortunately, they weren’t able to transition their form into Cologne.

Individually, sh1ro is the bread and butter of this Cloud9 roster. He’s been an absolute beast lately, especially post-acquisition where he’s developed into a true leader of the pack.

Ax1Le has to be mentioned too. His clutch game is continuing to improve… but you know how they say – live by the clutch, die by the clutch.

NaVi
1st or 2nd depending on IEM Cologne outcome
NaVi-logoEven though NaVi have tough competition at the number one spot, they’re still worthy of the winners’ basket. After all, they did win everything there was to be won in 2021. I’m sure that’s enough for us to forgive a few rough campaigns in 2022.

Mind you, they weren’t disastrous. They reached the semifinal in Katowice, quarterfinal in Dusseldorf, and went on to the Antwerp Major grand finals. While they did lose to Faze, they came right back up on their feet by winning BLAST Premier Spring Finals too.

Boombl4 was benched shortly after the end of PGL Major Antwerp, which prompted such a quick recovery on BLAST Premier Spring Finals. As for IEM Cologne, they’re still in the mix. At the moment, they’re waiting to see who they’ll play against in the semifinals. It’s either Astralis or Mouz – the match is scheduled for this Friday, July 15th.

Overall, Natus Vincere are in great shape. Despite many doubting their choice, NaVi’s gamble with sdy has already paid off, and I’m already getting the feeling that NaVi will end up buying him from MAD Lions in a few months. Remember, the current loan deal is temporary.바카라사이트

As for S1mple, he’s doing what he does best. True, he hasn’t been that good in the first three months, but his form did improve later on. Whichever way you put it, he’s been better than ZywOo this year…

Biggest CSGO Losers in the First Half of 2022
Here are five teams that couldn’t cope with pressure or have in other ways negatively affected their end-of-2021 standings:

Outsiders
Relegated from 7th to 16th
Virtus.pro logoRemember when I said that, despite all ongoing controversy, Gambit roster’s transition to Cloud9 went relatively smoothly? Well, that can’t be said for Virtus.pro’s transition to Outsiders. On the business side, the answers are pretty obvious. But, as far as the current roster morale goes, Outsiders are yet to do themselves some justice.

Virtus.pro boys have already played several big tournaments under the new banner. Unfortunately, they didn’t have a single solid campaign. I’m not trying to bash on them, but they’ve been absolutely atrocious all year long.

Right After the Major They Parted Ways With Buster and YEKINDAR

Unfortunately, both of their situations are well-known and it had to be done. Let’s not get into that. But, what we could get into is the choice for their replacements – n0rb3r7 and fame from K23.

Right off the bat, we can agree they’re not exactly household names. But, they aren’t bad either. Throughout their first couple of matches, both have been solid. When talking raw contributions, both have been better than Qikert.

But, there’s a lot more work to be done which puts Outsiders in an uphill struggle. They’re definitely the biggest CSGO losers in the first half of the 2022 season.

G2
Relegated from 4th to 6th
G2 logoG2 have been absolutely awful lately. To be honest with you, I am not even sure how they’re in the sixth spot right now. That’s bound to drop down even lower after the end of IEM Cologne as they weren’t exactly good on it either.

Their best performance was way back in February when they reached the finals of IEM Katowice. But, they got their ass whooped by Faze Clan who asserted dominance with a clean 3:0 finish. Since then, it’s been nothing but one bad campaign after another.

What seems to be wrong with G2? Well, at this point, pretty much everything!

Their map pool is in scrambles, their form is non-existent, and as soon as they have an important match on their hands, they give their worst. It’s a never-ending cycle, really, and the worst thing is that their management isn’t keen on changing anything.

We haven’t seen any new signings or any roster alterations at all. Plus, Niko and hunter have just recently signed multi-year extensions. I’m not saying they don’t deserve it, truthfully they’ve been G2’s best players for quite a while already, but it’s still silly to see contract extensions being more important than imminent changes.

That said, I’m afraid we’re going to see G2 continue their downward path. So, if you’re looking for valuable info for your CSGO bets, take our advice and look away from G2.

Astralis
Relegated from 8th to 11th
Astralis are currently just shy of the top ten. But, given they’re still alive in Cologne, that’s bound to change following the end of the tournament. They’ll definitely be a top ten team, so perhaps we’re being a bit too rough on them here.

But, Astralis still aren’t even close to being a top-tier team. Even when they’re playing well, their map pool is not deep enough and they just can’t find the extra grit to clutch important rounds.

They keep mixing things up in the roster department. At the moment, Xyp9x and gla1ve core is coupled with k0nfig, blameF and farlig. The latter joined late February after Lucky got benched. On paper, the roster seems to have a nice combination of youth and experience. But, CSGO games aren’t won on paper.

On the bright side, Astralis are finally getting top four finishes. Pinnacle Cup Championship saw them finish second; Roobet Cup saw them reach the semifinals. They might finally get their lucky break, but Astralis are still among the biggest CSGO losers in the first half of 2022.

Vitality
Relegated from 3rd to 5th
Vitality-logoVitality’s drop from third to fifth isn’t a massive one, right? Well, it’s not. But, there’s a reason why they’re on our list. You see, when they signed dupreeh, Magisk, and coach zonic back in January, we all expected a lot more from this team. We all expected them to finally be able to content NaVi.

Instead, all we got was a mediocre star-packed roster with no real consistency. Consistency, that’s the name of the game for Vitality. They have Zywoo, one of the best players to ever play the game, yet they’re still struggling against European challengers and even lowly tier-B teams from time to time.

It’s not the drop itself that’s the big issue here, it’s the fact everyone (including the fans) expected a lot more. Hardcore Vitality fans were enthusiastic, to say the least. Now that they’ve seen what these guys can do, the enthusiasm is gone.

With ZywOo bound by contract for quite a while, we’re left to see what the management will do with Vitality’s roster. As things stand now, there’s no need to raise the alarm. But, if their poor form continues, one good campaign like BLAST Premier Spring Finals won’t be enough to save them from the bench hammer.

Entropiq
Relegated from 10th to 32nd
Where is Entropiq? What happened to the team that finished 2021 on a rather strong note. They didn’t win any big tournaments, but they were consistent on smaller ones and almost went all the way in Hungary last November. V4 Future Sports Festival was the occasion and Entropiq reached the grand finals, giving Gambit a proper test with 3:2 on the final scoreboard.

They kicked 2022 off with a banger, going all the way to the grand finals but losing to Gambit in the end. Though this campaign suggested an amazing season is in front of them, Entropiq boys became complacent and went on what’s got to be one of their worst runs ever.

The problems weren’t just present on the server, they were present off it too. The management didn’t want to push for any roster alterations. They kept doing the same stuff over and over again, but without any luck.

It’s not going to be easy, though. Their poor spell pushed them out of all major AAA competitions and they’ll need to work extra hard in the qualifications for a chance to show what they’re made of under the big lights.

Casino : Wrapping Things Up

The players’ summer break starts this Sunday July 17th following the end of the IEM XVII Cologne spectacle. The break ends on August 19th with the start of the all-new season of BLAST Premier. The regular Fall season is followed by the all-new season of ESL Pro League on August 31st. These two are bound to get the players up and running for the IEM XVII Rio Major in November. 온라인카지노

Redskins Over Panthers In Monday Night Football

Football

The Carolina Panthers and Washington Redskins are headed in two very different directions when they clash on Monday Night Football in week 15. The Panthers have experienced a free fall, having made it to Super Bowl 50 and now staring a certain absence from the postseason in the face. Washington, on the other hand, has one route to the NFL playoffs and it involves winning their final three games.카지노사이트

While only the Redskins have a shot at the playoffs this year, both teams are still on very pronounced paths. The 5-8 Panthers could still take some solace in winning out and ending the year at 8-8, and the Redskins could still work their way toward their second straight playoff appearance.

Nothing will be permanently settled when the nation tunes into this game, but we could get one step closer to finding out more about Kirk Cousins and these Redskins. And if the Panthers step up and pull off the upset, perhaps we get a look into the heart and soul of the 2017 Panthers.

Redskins vs. Panthers Betting Spread

Panthers +7
Redskins -7

This game means for more for the Redskins, which Vegas clearly understand by backing Washington by a touchdown. It’s not a bad line at first glance, but there are a few things we need to consider. For one, the Panthers have owned this series lately. The Redskins do lead (7-5) overall, but Carolina has won four in a row against the Redskins, including a decisive 44-16 effort in 2015.

Another approach to this game is the margin of victory and the manner both of these teams lose. When the Redskins win, it isn’t usually by a whole lot. Excluding a blowout win over the Packers four weeks ago, the Redskins have taken five of their other six wins by a touchdown or less. Their sixth win still came by just 11 points. They also don’t get housed much themselves, as the Redskins got crushed in week one by the Steelers, but kept it together and since then have not lost any game by more than 8 points.

Suffice to say, the Redskins are fairly well-coached, they can defend and they offer a balanced offense. Regardless, they aren’t exactly dominant and this spread is right on the fence as to how they tend to win football games in 2016.

Carolina looks like a lost cause at 5-8, but we need to note that they bounced back from a crushing loss to the Seahawks to beat the Chargers last week. That win showed resolve and it also showed a refusal to give up despite Carolina’s 2016 playoffs hopes being over.

The Panthers have gotten smoked a few times this year, but they largely have lost close games. Of their 8 losses, five have been by a field goal or less. The common theme in Carolina’s losses has been their inability to pull things out on the road. Considering that’s precisely where they’ll be on Monday night, it’s fair to wonder if they could again get housed like they did in Seattle, or if they’ll hang around long enough to barely lose and beat the spread.

The Redskins are home home (4-2), have more to play for and the Panthers have been terrible on the road. All of that leads us to believe Washington will find a way to win. However, due to their inability to pull away in games and keep finishes relatively close, we like Carolina’s chances to stick in this one and beat the spread. Besides, Cam Newton and co. still offer a lot of potential on offense and they undoubtedly would love to play spoiler as the season winds down. We don’t think they get to, but they should come close.

Pick
Redskins
30
Panthers
27
MoneyLine
Panthers +240
Redskins -280

This feels like a tough spot to bet on the Redskins. The spread is just big enough to scare us off of Washington and the MoneyLine offer such little upside (actually, it offers none) that betting on the Redskins straight up feels like a waste of time.

Having said that, the Redskins play their best ball at home, are the better team and need to keep winning to have a shot at the NFC’s last wild card spot. If we’re betting flat out on who wins this game – and that’s a bet you want to play – then the Redskins are the pick.

Carolina offers the upside with the MoneyLine bet, however. At top gambling sites like Bovada, a modest $100 bet would return a cool $240 if you bet on the Panthers to win, straight up. That bet isn’t as safe as the Redskins tonight, but Washington ($100 to get $35.71) just doesn’t see the risk and reward match.

This is absolutely one of those cases in NFL betting where the underdog (or bad bet) deserves a cursory bet just because of the upside. Perhaps $100 isn’t the bet to toss at the Panthers simply for the MoneyLine upside, but the potential with that bet is obvious. Given the spread and the way both of these teams have played so many of their games tightly, it’s a risk worth taking.

Total: 51
Perhaps betting on tonight’s Total makes more sense than anything else. After all, both Carolina and Washington can put points on the board, and anytime you have talented players on primetime television, you have to imagine they wouldn’t mind showcasing their skills for all the world to see.

The Redskins have been solid with this specific Total, too. Seven times the Redskins have hit on 51 or gone Over. The same doesn’t go for the Panthers, who have exceeded a 51 Total just four times on the year.

Of course, we need to consider two other pieces of information. This exact matchup has topped a 51 Total twice in their last three meetings, while the Redskins (25.4) and Panthers (23.9) get us close to that Total on their season averages, alone.

That might be close enough to shoot for the Over. Some feel that Josh Norman (formerly of the Panthers) could be the driving force behind what ultimately becomes a blowout win for the Redskins. It’s tough to lean on that logic too hard, as the Redskins simply haven’t been an elite defense.

A week ago the Redskins beat a struggling Eagles team with a rookie quarterback, but they needed a game-saving sack to do so and only won by five points. They also allowed 22 points in that game. The two games prior? They allowed 31 in two consecutive losses.바카라사이트

The Redskins probably squeak out the win to keep their playoff hope alive, but the Panthers are talented and have nothing to lose. That could have their offense stepping up a bit and keeping things interesting.

Fantasy Football Advice Season Long

We’re down to the nitty gritty in season long fantasy football leagues. For some leagues, Monday Night Football is the end to the playoffs. For others, it’s merely the beginning. Regardless which it is, it doesn’t change the importance.

It’s live or die time and you need to know which moves to make. For the most part, it’s going to be easy to map out, as with just one game to go in week 15, you already probably saw most of your players do their damage on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.

Going into tonight, the tough calls may come down to Cam Newton vs. Kirk Cousins, Jonathan Stewart vs. Rob Kelly, Greg Olsen vs. Jordan Reed and DeSean Jackson vs. Kelvin Benjamin.

This might not be a spot where you need to get caught up too much with matchups. The way we see it, we could get a good amount of points in this one – a game that really could still have the makings of a shootout.

That being said, you also can’t just go off of big names. Carolina’s passing game has struggled much more than Washington’s this year and with Cam Newton (shoulder) not quite 100%, it’s going to be tough to love his upside over someone like Cousins.

Cousins tends to play great football at home and it can’t hurt that he’ll be facing a Panthers defense that has seen an overall dip in their pass defense ever since they let Josh Norman go. More specifically, Carolina’s pass defense is just 23rd against quarterbacks on the year. The Panthers have only been worse against wide receivers (28th) and tight ends (31st), so there isn’t much reason to suddenly go against Washington’s passing game.

With Newton ailing and on the road, we’d hitch our playoff wagon to Cousins and the key Washington options in the passing game. DeSean Jackson still has major big-play upside and has been fantastic lately (15+ fantasy points in 3 of his last 4 games). Pierre Garcon has also been reliable for much of the year and has been just as good recently (14+ fantasy points in 4 of last 5 contests).

Using Cousins and either of his top wide receivers makes sense, but trusting in stud tight end Jordan Reed (shoulder) could be the problem. Reed has only played in one game since injuring his labrum and he hasn’t been good. That being said, you probably need to use him at this point and the word has been good out of practice:

Still, if you also somehow have Greg Olsen, he looks like the safer play of the two.

Both kickers (Graham Gano and Dustin Hopkins) are very much in play in this one, as both have been good to great all year. Hopkins is the pick, however, as he’s at home and he’s been the more reliable option in 2016.

Defensively, this might be a game to avoid, so hopefully you already used a solid team defense. If not, you could be in a pickle. The Panthers probably have the more talented defense overall, but they will be tough to trust on the road – even if star linebacker Luke Kuechly (concussion) suits up. The word has been good on Kuechly, however, so if he’s a full go, it does give Carolina a big defensive boost:

Washington has the better matchup, however. They have a solid bend-but-don’t-break defense and they operate well at home. The Panthers also take sacks and turn the ball over, while Norman’s revenge could fuel a great game out of Washington’s defense – specifically in the turnover department. We don’t love either defense to cap fantasy football in week 15, but of the two we’d take the Redskins at home.

DFS

The DFS grind is a bit different, as you’re not toast if you lose tonight. You just might miss out on some serious cash, is all.

The advice remains the same across the board. The main difference will be pricing and who can/want to fit onto your daily fantasy football roster. For the most part, week 15 lineups are all settled, though. The real question is for the Mon/Thu daily fantasy football leagues you’ll find at DraftKings.

Those games feature tonight’s game, as well as a TNF matchup between the Giants and Eagles. Odds are we’ll want to go Redskins/Giants heavy for that slate, but if you’re looking for some cheap plays that can open up cap room or might be a little contrarian, we’ve got a few:

  • Carson Wentz, QB, Eagles ($5k)
  • Ryan Mathews, RB, Eagles ($4k)
  • Devin Funchess, WR, Panthers ($3.4k)
  • Redskins Defense ($2.6k)

Odds are you’ll be able to get whatever NFL DFS team you want on a two-game slate, but using some of these value picks might switch things up enough to help differentiate your squad.

Carson Wentz doesn’t feel like a great pick, but he actually hung over 360 passing yards on the Giants earlier this year. He also hasn’t been all that bad lately, producing 16+ fantasy points in four of his last five games. At home and with nothing to lose, he could have a decent outing against the G-Men. The emphasis is on could, but he’s only $5k and few people will be on him.

Ditto for Mathews, who was a monster this week (25 fantasy points) but will be dirt cheap on TNF and many will shy away of him due to New York’s stingy run defense. He’ll be a contrarian play and he’s obviously coming off of a huge game, as well.

Funchess is a nice sleeper for tonight. He caught a touchdown pass in his last game and with Kelvin Benjamin banged up, there’s a chance he sees a little more action come his way tonight.

The Redskins defense are a fine play no matter what, but considering they’re the cheapest unit on this short slate, it might hammer them in as a great play.

The best route to really differentiate lineups for this slate, of course, may be to fade Odell Beckham Jr. on Thursday Night Football. He’s been awesome all year and even scored twice last time he faced the Eagles, but their defense otherwise limited him to just four catches and 46 yards. It’s not crazy to think they stifle him in a similar fashion on Thursday and for a guy that could be over 90% owned on a slate like this, not using him could potentially pay off.

Regardless the direction you go with your fantasy football plays or NFL bets, we wish you luck! 온라인카지노

2016 Breeders Cup Classic Odds: Analyzing the Top Sleepers to Target

Odds

Arguably the greatest two-day stretch in horse racing arrives in roughly one week, when the 2016 Breeders Cup Classic touches down at Santa Anita Park on November 5th.카지노사이트

California Chrome returns to avenge a 3rd place loss from 2014 and enters one of horse racing’s grandest events as the odds on favorite. The exact odds differ depending on the betting site you touch base with, but Bovada gives the champion horse strong +105 odds ahead of his return to the Breeders Cup Classic.

While many feel this is undoubtedly California Chrome’s race to lose, there is a list a mile long of pre-entry horses and the final field could be a severely stacked group that even California Chrome might not be ready for.

California Chrome does march in coming off quite a wild run, having secured first in six straight races. Per Bovada, California Chrome is currently the only horse with better than +300 odds, while just two other top contenders – Arrogate and Frosted – even crack +1600 at the moment.

Such a wide margin between the top contenders and the rest of the field have many thinking California Chrome is the easy pick, but there figure to be numerous sleepers worth keeping an eye on this year.

Let’s take a look at the entire 2016 Breeders Cup Classic odds as of October 27th and then touch on our favorite sleepers that could emerge as true threats:

2016 Breeders Cup Classic Odds

  • California Chrome +105
  • Arrogate +300
  • Frosted +800
  • Songbird +1600
  • Connect +1800
  • Dortmund +1800
  • Melatonin +2000
  • Shaman Ghost +2000
  • Nyquist +2000
  • Beholder +2500
  • American Freedom +2500
  • Hoppertunity +2500
  • Gun Runner +2800
  • Mubtaahij +3300
  • Effinex +4000
  • Destin +4000
  • Mohaymen +4000
  • Suddenbreakingnews +4000
  • Imperative +5000
  • Mor Spirit +5000
  • Keen Ice +5000

California Chrome has won six straight races and as we all know, gave it a go both at the Triple Crown and at this very event in 2014. He’s back for more on November 5th, and leads a talented field that could include bigger names and very different odds by the time this event rolls around a week from now.바카라사이트

Top BCC Sleepers

While we can safely expect a lot to change over the next seven days, we can still start to gauge which of these horses currently listed with odds has a realistic shot at pulling off an upset.

California Chrome is the obvious favorite, while Arrogate and Frosted are the next two favorites for most experts. Nyquist has a rich history and Songbird comes in undefeated, too, though, so that’s a good five horses that probably tower over this field at the moment.

That being said, there are some strong Breeders Cup Classic sleepers to keep an eye on. Here are our favorite three:

Hoppertunity (+2500)

Just ahead of Hoppertunity are a few horses with +2000 odds and among them is Nyquist. If we can dial up Nyquist as a sleeper (or if Nyquist’s odds drop) we will definitely want to look there.

However, to get us started, Hoppertunity is certainly an interesting Breeders Cup Classic sleeper. The odds are very playable and this is a pretty talented horse with loads of experience – especially against some of the top horses in this very event:

Not only did this five-year old win its last race (Jockey Club Gold Cup), but it’s taken down six first place finishes throughout its long career and has never finished worse than 5th. In fact, that 5th place run came in its first ever race and at no other point have we seen this horse end a race anywhere but 4th or better.

Hoppertunity is obviously no lock to storm first place here, but this horse is coming in with a little momentum, is very seasoned and sports some fun odds.

Gun Runner (+2800)

Gun Runner could be another fun horse to bet on at the 2016 Breeders Cup Classic, if for no other reason because his stellar experience against stiff competition. This is just a three-year old colt, but Gun Runner has five wins in 10 races and has placed 5th or better in every race he’s competed in.

The biggest tilt in Gun Runner’s favor is his success against elite horses, especially in recent competition. Gun Runner finished second to Connect in his last race, third in a recent race behind Arrogate and has victories over Exaggerator, Texas Chrome and Mo Tom.

We can all recall Gun Runner’s strong performance at the Triple Crown this year, too, where the colt finished third behind Nyquist and Exaggerator at the 2016 Kentucky Derby.

Effinex (+4000)

Of our three sleepers here, Effinex is our favorite, especially when you look at the mixture of Breeders Cup Classic odds, experience, talent and success. The odds are probably the main driving force here, but this five-year old horse has been running well lately, with three wins in 2016 and some solid history against some elite competition.

Effinex boasts nine first place finishes on its lengthy career, and has finished inside the top three an impressive seven times in its last nine races.

With wins over Melatonin (+2000 odds going into the Breeders Cup Classic), Hoppertunity and Tonalist, as well as strong showings in the same field as horses like Hoppertunity (1st and 2nd), American Pharoah (2nd) and the aforementioned Tonalist (1st and 2nd), this is a battle tested horse that is very much a threat to go the distance.

Other Possible Entrants

There is still time for a lot to change, so we need to monitor the field, which could be updated with each passing day. A few horses not currently listed with Bovada’s latest odds that we’ll want to monitor are Found, Highland Reel, Win the Space and War Story, among others.

As things stand, this is a fluid field and we’ll have more to touch on as the 2016 Breeders Cup Classic draws closer.온라인카지노

Week 3 NFL Predictions: Odds and Picks For Every Game

NFL

The 2016 NFL season continues to move at a torrid pace, as week three has already arrived with a few teams already looking at lost seasons and others starting to look like legit contenders.카지노사이트

Injuries have ravaged some clubs, with big names like Adrian Peterson, Danny Woodhead, Jonathan Stewart, DeMarcus Ware and Doug Martin all hitting the shelf. Peterson and Woodhead look to be lost for the remainder of the year, while other players could leave their teams in a tough spot for multiple weeks.

Heading into week three, every team has another chance to prove a slow start is just a mild gaffe, or that a perfect 2-0 run is a sign of things to come. Let’s take things one step further as we survey the week three landscape by breaking each matchup down and handing out our week three NFL Picks based on Bovada’s spreads and totals.

Week 3 NFL Odds and Picks Texans (-1.5) @ Patriots (+1.5) Total: 40.4

The spread is pretty weak for this one because Jimmy Garoppolo is doubtful and for the third week in a row Rob Gronkowski’s status is unknown. Houston brings an elite defense into town, but they don’t get much of an edge against a Patriots team that has found ways to win despite not having Gronk or Tom Brady.

That being said, New England’s run probably runs out with raw rookie Jacoby Brissett starting this week. We’ll take the Texans to cover, but this game probably will be low-scoring so you can comfortably bet on the Under.

Pick: Texans 20, Patriots 16

Lions (+8) @ Packers (-8) Total: 48

Detroit won in Green Bay for the first time in over 20 years last season, so it’s fair to wonder if they’ll suddenly make it back to back road wins against a superior Packers squad.

Green Bay has caught a ton of heat for coming up lame at Minnesota last week, but it’s entirely possible they get the blood flowing again with their first Lambeau Field appearance during the 2016 regular season. The spread could be dicey here, but Detroit’s defense hasn’t been amazing and this is a tough place to stage an upset. We’ll give Aaron Rodgers and co. the benefit of the doubt for week three as they cover and help push for the Over.

Pick: Packers 31, Lions 24

Redskins (+4.5) @ Giants (-4.5) Total: 46.5

We get to see this week who is the better performer AND trash talker between Odell Beckham Jr. and Josh Norman. While that wide receiver vs. cornerback matchup could make for must-see television, it probably won’t have a huge impact on a game in which the Giants look like the better team.

Mostly, we’re just not betting on Kirk Cousins in a road game against an improved Giants defense. The game should be close, though, which should yield to the Under and the Redskins just barely beating the spread.

Pick: Giants 24, Redskins 20

Vikings (+7) @ Panthers (-7) Total: 43

Adrian Peterson is pretty much done for the year, so we’ll find out real quick just how good Sam Bradford and these Vikings are.

To be frank, even if All Day was healthy and didn’t look like crap through the first two weeks, it’d be tough to pick the Vikes on the road against a good Panthers team. This spread is a bit thick considering how good Minnesota’s defense looks, though. Because of that, Minnesota should beat the spread in what could be a defensive battle that promotes the Under.

Pick: Panthers 23, Vikings 17

Ravens (-1) @ Jaguars (+1) Total: 47

The Ravens and Jags are seemingly going in opposite directions, as Baltimore has used a fast start to stay a perfect 0-2, yet the would-be rising Jaguars are still searching for their first win.

Blake Bortles and a talented Jacksonville defense offer upside – especially at home – but from what we can tell so far, the Jags just aren’t very good. If they come in turning the ball over like they did last week, this one won’t be close. With Baltimore’s defense and main M.O. to control the ball, we would aim for the Under, as well.

Pick: Ravens 24, Jaguars 20

Browns (+10) @ Dolphins (-10) Total: 41.5

Cody Kessler is starting for the Browns, who had a 20-2 lead at home last week and still couldn’t get a win. We don’t have a ton of faith in Miami, but they’re at home and believe it or not, are the better team.

The Dolphins eating a 10-point spread will forever be impossible to buy, but Kessler could be a train wreck in his debut. You have to attack them to cover here, while a possible blowout should aid the Over.

Pick: Dolphins 31, Browns 13

Cardinals (-5) @ Bills (+5) Total: 47

Rex Ryan attempted to produces some form of false confidence by suggesting Buffalo’s week three date is exactly what the Bills need. He couldn’t be more wrong, as Arizona responded in week two like a title contender that was ashamed of losing at home in week one.

The talent difference is startling here, too. Sammy Watkins isn’t healthy and Buffalo’s defense just isn’t good enough right now to combat a pretty explosive Cardinals attack. Arizona should cover and chasing the Over makes sense given how bad the Bills have been defensively.

Pick: Cardinals 30, Bills 23

Raiders (+1) @ Titans (-1) Total: 47

Oakland showed guts and offensive upside in weeks one and two, but not a lick of defensive aptitude. Tennessee isn’t the worst opponent on the road, but Marcus Mariota showed up in the clutch and we’ve now seen this Titans defense look good two weeks in a row.

It’s crazy to think the Titans could get the leg up on a Raiders team many had pegged for the playoffs, but their defense is better and they’re at home. We should see some points here one way or another and we’ll give the home team the slight edge to cover.

Pick: Titans 33, Raiders 30 바카라사이트

49ers (+9) @ Seahawks (-9) Total: 40

This game is impossible to call, seeing as a Seattle loss in L.A. last week makes sure nothing is ever again truly off the table.

It’s still unbelievably difficult to win in Seattle, though, while the Niners obviously aren’t a scary team with Blaine Gabbert at the offensive controls. The Seahawks will win, but the time of blindly granting them spreads and totals is gone. Instead, let’s brace for a tight defensive battle where Seattle barely squeaks out a victory.

Pick: Seahawks 16, 49ers 13

Rams (+5.5) @ Buccaneers (-5.5) Total: 42

The Rams shocked us all with a big win last week and now they have a chance to somehow get to 2-1 if they can topple human turnover machine, Jameis Winston.

Tampa Bay looked to be onto something with a big road win in week one, but last week they got exposed. Call us crazy, but that Rams defense looked possessed and a Todd Gurley breakout game has to be just around the corner. The points won’t be there and a straight up pick is dicey, but the Rams should at least beat the spread.

Pick: Rams 19, Buccaneers 16

Steelers (-3.5) @ Eagles (+3.5) Total: 46

The Steelers and Eagles are both 2-0 as they face off in what naturally will be dubbed the Battle of Pennsylvania.

Maybe not, but this is a very interesting matchup between a legit Super Bowl contender and a team that is basically coming out of nowhere. The Eagles are at home and have looked impressive, but Carson Wentz can’t be perfect forever. Look for a better Steelers team to get the best of him as they cover.

Pick: Steelers 27, Eagles 20

Chargers (+3) @ Colts (-3) Total: 52

This is the second most explosive game of the week and given the talented offenses at hand and the turf in Indy, we can ride with the Over. Picking the winner is the tough part, as the Bolts have been surprisingly tough through two weeks and the Colts have come up short in both of their games.

Conventional wisdom suggests San Diego struggles slightly more on the road, while Indy absolutely has to have this game to avoid an 0-3 hole.

Pick: Colts 34, Chargers 31

Jets (+3) @ Chiefs (-3) Total: 43

This is another interesting matchup, as both teams sport capable offenses and talented defenses. Neither defense has been quite elite thus far, while both offenses have the tendency to waver in the face of adversity.

We tend to side with the Jets here, seeing as Matt Forte has been a wrecking ball for them and their defense still has a ton of upside when it comes to stopping the run. Expect a close game with some points, but a Jets win should be a safe play.

Pick: Jets 27, Chiefs 23

Bears (+7) @ Cowboys (-7) Total: 44.5

Jay Cutler (thumb) is out for the next few weeks, putting Brian Hoyer at the controls for the Bears. That can only end horribly, while Chicago wasn’t looking like a world beater to begin with.

Not much more analysis is needed here, but Dallas is at home and it feels like we’re closing in on a big breakout game for Dak Prescott. Because of that, we’re feeling saucy enough to shoot for the Over and give Dallas the cover here.

Pick: Cowboys 33, Bears 16

Falcons (+3) @ Saints (-3) Total: 53.5

This has to be the most explosive game of the week, as the Saints laid a serious egg in week two and are so unstoppable at home on offense. Drew Brees and co. should be back to their high-flying ways, while the Falcons offense is also too much for the trash Saints defense to stop.

These bitter divisional rivals always put up points in tight affairs, so we can expect a close game and chase the Over here. The edge goes to New Orleans, who have lost twice by a combined four points. They don’t lose at home usually and will be desperate for a win here on Monday Night Football.온라인카지노

ESL Challenger at DreamHack Valencia 2022 Starts Soon

ESL

ESL Challenger is a relatively new series organized by ESL and sponsored by the likes of Intel, DHL, and Monster Energy. Its main goal is to provide a competition for tier-B teams from which they can contest for a spot on one of the scene’s biggest competitions, the ESL Pro League. 카지노사이트

More precisely, the winner of this contest gets a spot on the EPL Conference Season 17 from which they can qualify for the most prestigious ESL CSGO competition. It’s not the easiest of qualification roads, but it’s going to be just enough for one of these teams, that’s for sure.

ESL Challenger at DreamHack Valencia Starts Next Friday

The contest is going to be played as a LAN in Valencia, Spain. More precisely, Feria Valencia is going to be the location; the ideal venue for all things esports.

The action starts next Friday, July 1st and will go on for the entire weekend. Only eight teams are set to participate in this $100,000 competition, but their quality is actually at an admirable level.

No, we don’t see the likes of G2 and Faze Clan participate on ESL Challenger in Valencia. But, the likes of FURIA, Movistar Riders, and Outsiders ought to put on quite the show in Spain. In fact, here’s the full list of participants:

  • FURIA
  • MIBR
  • Movistar Riders
  • Outsiders
  • Sprout
  • GODSENT
  • HUMMER Esports
  • Rare Atom

Unfortunately, we still don’t know the group stage distribution. We should get an update in the next 48 hours or so, after which we’ll have a ton of CSGO betting lines on display as well.

What we do know is that the tournament will kick off with a group stage – two groups with four teams in each. We’re looking at double-elimination groups with a mixture of best-of-ones and best-of-threes.

Top four teams, two from each of the groups, will advance to the semifinals where they’ll need to win two more bo3s to be crowned as the champions.

That’s basically all you need to know about ESL Challenger at DreamHack Valencia. If you’re interested in watching or betting on this event, make sure you visit us again in a couple of days as we we’re bound to have additional betting-related content for it.

ESL has announced a new Counter-Strike: Global Offensive women’s circuit for 2022. The aim of the circuit is to “increase awareness, provide new opportunities and improve the representation for all women CS:GO players,” according to the press release. The new circuit, sponsored by Intel and DHL, will offer a total of $500,000 across regional leagues, standalone events at DreamHack festivals and ESL Cash Cups.

The circuit is the first part of a new program called #GGFORALL, which will include several Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives to “decrease the company’s environmental impact, to aid in establishing an inclusive gaming community free of discrimination, verbal abuse and bullying, and much more,” according to the release. The company has already announced a plan to offset its carbon emissions.

“By providing an infrastructure equal to their male counterparts, we are thrilled to create more visibility and opportunities for women in the esports space, as well as to support them in their professional development and to help make their dreams come true,” Roberta Hernandez, SVP People and Culture at ESL Gaming, said.

ESL has also committed to instituting a women players council. The council will provide input in developing the CS:GO ecosystem for women and will create “a platform for consolidated feedback towards ESL Gaming and other Tournament Organizers.”

Finally, ESL has committed to increasing representation of women within their company and as broadcasting talent. They plan to introduce a “talent development program” that will provide aspiring talent with the skills and the tools to succeed. The program will also offer opportunities to cast ESL competitions. 바카라사이트

Uncovering Common Slot Machine Misconceptions

Slot

Slot machines are generally considered the best known casino games around. In addition, slots account for a huge part of the club’s income, because they are famous for providing players with unfortunate opportunities. 카지노사이트

After consulting with many high-end club players, most people will agree that slots receive negative criticism. In any case, this page needs to explain some of the incorrect information.

Club betting should be considered a kind of entertainment and having a great time should be the real purpose of most gambling club players. You can’t expect to go to a gambling club and win. That’s simply not how it works.

Moreover, you can’t positively expect to eventually hit the slot jackpot. Many people live their entire lives without ever seeing them. With the end goal of uncovering the possibilities of slot jackpots, we will reveal perhaps the most notable fantasies encompassing slot machines.

1 – The game gets hot

Numerous cardsharks acknowledge that the club can remotely control how the machine works from one twist to another.

The game machine works using irregular number generator. These RNGs can be controlled to increase or decrease the player’s re-visit to a satisfactory extent.

Incidentally, players have the idea that these RNGs can sometimes “get hot” and spark long series victories. The most important thought here is that success will finally take a huge stake, and at that point it will once again be sober.

No matter how you think, this logic has no basis. The players don’t understand that the club doesn’t care who wins and loses.

RTP allows you to account for 2% to 8% of all dollars spent on slot machines. Believe my words. They are more than satisfied with that kind of profit from the venture.

2-You will not effectively swoop for victory

One strategy that certain slot fans use is to see the most played slot bank and win a huge prize later.

You may have heard an anecdote that after withdrawing cash for quite a while, the unfortunate sap left the machine. Then, at one point, an exceptional reversal brings a huge victory.

Actually, this happened. Anyway, the possibility of you jumping in probably won’t beat you. Slot machines are intended to gradually steal cash. Along these lines, a machine that just took the funds of a past player will probably do that for you too.

Remember that the machine is simply to pay the level of cash committed for a significant period of time. Sometimes it can be surprisingly high. In any case, it can be much lower for others.

You can’t actually predict when the game machine will be paid. Don’t circle your gadgets like a hunter, only participate in the game.

3-The Truth of Players Club

I see a huge amount of casino card sharks trying not to join the players club, no matter what. They seem to acknowledge that focus-based rewards programs are a kind of racket operated by casinos.

If you do not need 3 minutes to participate in the Club Sincerity program, you will spend cash.

Integrity programs provide individuals with amazing club composition and benefits. This is probably the most effective way to expand your funds without making any further effort at the club right away.

Play the # 1 game and you’ll get a free twist, a competition section, a free dinner, and, surprisingly, a free stay. Whether you win or lose, it doesn’t have a sole effect.

The main idea is how much cash you’re playing with overall. Join the Players Club and get benefits not far away when walking to the casino.

4-Slots are strictly bets.

Many club betting intellectuals consider slot machines to be gambling. This mindset comes from the way slot machines rely on luck.

You won’t find a powerful benefit betting method for slot machines at any point. In addition, higher than normal housing benefits can help you finance faster than other casino games.

The fact actually confirms that the edge of the house and some of the blind luck neutralize you. Even if it is possible, components acquired through reliability programs can balance costs elsewhere.

You have to stay focused and keep the situation wisely close to the normal return of other games.

The most basic element you represent is your happiness. Assuming you’re having a great time during a meeting on a slot machine, wisely speaking, the lost cash doesn’t matter.

5-You will win in the end

The most widely known wrong judgment is that when you enter a gambling hall to play a slot machine, you are more likely to leave the champion.

I don’t know where these speculators are getting their data, but at the same time, they regularly do the opposite.

House Edge means that most players fail to ride their vehicle and head home. Nevertheless, we love to hear the story of victorious individuals.

No one needs to enlighten a loved one about their terrible encounter. Therefore, we routinely hear stories of players who have won huge victories on gambling machines.바카라사이트

We generally accept, at least for now, the fact that next is next.

Unfortunately, it is basically impossible to guarantee a positive result on a slot machine. Finally, you can win, but there will be undeniable additional terrible things.

6-Only big casinos have the best slots

The possibility of getting the best RTP from gaming machines on the Las Vegas Strip or Macau’s luxurious gambling clubs is not just off-base. It is, to some extent, the opposite.

Larger gambling clubs understand that there is an enthralling crowd and take advantage of that reality. The RTP on the popular Las Vegas Strip is much lower than the 95% business normal in numerous clubs.

Most sports card sharks don’t know what RTP is or what it means directly to the player. Clubs can put a huge load of low-wage machines on the floor with the confidence that they will always be there.

Nevertheless, Las Vegas ‘ off-strip clubs face a tough upswing. These gambling clubs need to increase their current expectations to attract players through the driveway.
This is why Midtown Casino tracks the most profitable slots in Vegas. Get off the strip and pause for a moment to work on the opportunity to create a slot machine. 카지노사이트
