Afreeca Starleague Season 6 » Semifinals Betting Tips
The quarterfinals of the Afreeca Starleague Season 6 are now over and four more professional South Korean players have been eliminated. It is time for the very best to fight for a place in the finals, as the two semi-finals are scheduled for Sunday and Tuesday. There were a few surprised and two crushing victories for the favourites, but the best is yet to come for Starcraft fans.
Last and Effort Eliminate both Group A Teams
Sharp has won Group A, while the best Protoss player, Rain had to settle for second place. Both of them were in for a tough encounter against Last and Effort and both had to bow out graciously from the competition. Last made short work of Sharp to sweep the series, while Effort wrapped up his quarterfinal in four games after leading throughout series. Now, they will face each other in the first semi-final, scheduled for Sunday at 11 AM UK time.
Bet-At-Home regards Last as the main favourite to win the series and offers odds of 1/2 on his victory. These are justified by his uncanny ability of dispatching of Zerg players, after winning all matches against this race at the Afreeca Starleague Season 6. His dominant display of skill against Sharp is still very much alive in the memory of punters who might even consider a bet on him to cover the -1.5 games spread.
Effort is no pushover though and he won a very difficult group to qualify for the quarterfinals, so odds of 23/10 on his victory are nothing to frown upon. However, he hasn’t played against any Terran player so far and he will now take on one of the best there are. Betway offers even odds on him to win at least two matches, which looks like a better alternative to a bet on outright victory.

Flash is Huge Favourite Against Shuttle
The quarterfinal against Mini turned out to be a lopsided victory for Flash who dominated every single match. He was so good that his opponent was unable to take the lead in any of the matches and had a hard time conceding defeat. This time we get even lower odds on the best Terran player in the world to win, against a skilled Protoss. GG.bet offers odds of 1/4 on Flash to prevail and we believe there are good chances for these odds to drop even further.
Those who believe that Shuttle can cause an upset will enjoy the odds of 5/1 at Esportsbetting.com on his win. Somewhere in between are the bets on the Protoss to win at least one match, which today are inching closer to evens. Shuttle is an incredibly intelligent and creative player and he is certain to try to surprise Flash. This is the only way to actually get an edge against such an opponent and we trust the Protoss not to get swept. Live betting is also a worthy option and Arcanebet has a vibrant live betting section.
The odds are subject to change and likely to move in one direction before kickoff.
