2018 Korea StarCraft League Season 2 Group C and D » Betting Tips
The group stage of the 2018 Korea StarCraft League Season 2 is nearly over and we already know the names of Group A and B winners. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Rain and Mind won the first two groups, with Light and Where fighting for the second place in Group A, while Soulkey and Mini do the same in Group B. It is now time to focus on the two remaining groups, where four matches are scheduled for November 15th and 16th. Bet-At-Home and Betway cover these matches and punters can already bet on the winners.

Larva is Favourite to Win Group C
Larva could be the first Zerg player to officially qualify for the quarterfinals, if he manages to defeat Jaehoon on November 15th. Both players have barely won the opening matches by 3-2 and will be aiming for a victory in straight matches. ArcaneBet prices a Larva victory at only 3/10, while Jaehoon is given much better odds of 11/5 to emerge victorious. In order to enjoy even odds on this match, punters would have to bet on Larva to drop nu more than one match and win the series.
Sharp and Movie will try to keep their dreams alive after suffering disappointing first-round defeats. The good news is that both have won two matches already and can turn the tables on their opponents. Sharp’s solid game against Protoss players explains why he is credited with the first chance by GG.bet. The odds currently stand at 7/10, significantly lower than the 9/5 offered on Mini to cause an upset. The player who loses this match is eliminated, so the stakes will be high and we anticipate a highly contested series.
The odds are subject to change and likely to move in one direction before kickoff.
Two Terrans Expected to Survive Group D
Last is likely to join fellow Terran Mind in the quarterfinals after sweeping JyJ in the opening match. This time, he will take on a Zerg player and once again he is regarded as the overwhelming favourite to prevail. The odds offered on his victory don’t surpass 1/10 at Esportsbetting.com, which makes this the most lopsided match of the group stage. Punters can extract further value from these odds by betting on another sweep for Last, or at least bet on the Terran player to cover the -1.5 games spread.
Another Terran is likely to join Last in the quarterfinals, as the other match scheduled on November 16 in Group D also involves two players who chose this race. JyJ and Leta are going to lock horns in a match of critical importance and the latter is favourite to win, but only by the narrowest of margins. Rivalry offers odds of 19/20 on Leta and 1/1 on JyJ, in a match that could go both ways. The final matches in all groups will take place next week, but the winners and top seeds in the quarterfinals will be decided these days.
