Who To Bet On In the WESG 2017 Thailand LAN Qualifier
Knowing who to bet on in the Thailand LAN qualifier for WESG 2017 is difficult because there is such little information to go off of. We’d suggest not betting on specific teams during the first few stages, and instead bet against certain teams.
The event will start with a quarter final on December 22nd – all eight teams will be paired with an opponent and the winner of each pair will move onto the semi finals. After that, the four remaining teams will be paired up again until there are just two winners which will then move onto the grand finals.
During the semi finals and quarter finals, we’d say that it would be wise to bet against Lucid Dream, especially if they go up against any of the invited teams. Lucid Dream will be getting a stand-in for this event.
It’s also a fairly safe option to bet against all of the qualified teams. They’re very inexperienced when compared to teams like Signature, Beyond Esports, and NSPR.
When it comes to picking a winner, we’d say that Signature and Beyond are currently standing out as the teams to take the win so far. Signature and Beyond have certainly had the most exposure to competitive events in CS:GO, and they’ve managed to pull in wins against Made In Thailand, NSPR, and other Thai teams.
If either Beyond or Signature made it to the grand final, we’d put a bet on them winning it. If both Beyond and Signature went up against each other in the grand final, it’d be a pretty risky bet to make on either team. Their matchups in the past have been incredibly back and forth.
Hopefully, you can find this information useful for when you tune in to the WESG 2017 Thailand LAN qualifier.
