LAS VEGAS - Today’s edition of the Daily Sports Betting Preview starts out with traditional sports, then begins to focus on esports.

First up, in the English Premier League, Tottenham Hotspur face off against Manchester United, in what is sure to be an important match.

Then, in the Call of Duty League and esports betting, the Preview takes a look at the matchup between Atlanta FaZe and Toronto Ultra.

Finally, in the world of Counter-Strike, the CS:GO Blast Premier Spring rolls on, as MIBR take on Evil Geniuses.

There’s a lot to cover today, so let’s get started!

Tottenham vs. Manchester United

Tottenham have traditionally been one of the elite teams in the Premier League, as have Manchester United.

This season, however, both of them are a notch (or several) below the elite.

Manchester United is fifth in the league, with a record of 12 wins, 9 draws and 8 losses.

Tottenham is eighth in the league with a record of 11 wins, 8 draws and 10 losses.

Neither of these teams is in serious contention to win the league - Liverpool effectively wrapped that up a long time ago.

Manchester United are favored in this matchup, with +130 odds to win, while Tottenham clock in with +210 odds to pull off the upset.

A draw has +235 odds on the moneyline, not far removed from the odds that Tottenham have to win the match.

The Over/Under line for the match is set at 2.5 goals, with a bit of shading towards the Under, which has -115 odds, while the Over has -105 odds.

Manchester United have not lost in their last five matches, with three wins and two draws. Meanwhile, Tottenham have racked up a record of two wins, two losses and a draw.

However, it is worth noting that many of these matches were played before the Premier League went on pause due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so it is unclear how this will affect their current form.

Regardless, the match looks compelling, and soccer bettors should take note.

CDL Betting

The Call of Duty League is back with more daily action today, and the Preview will be looking at a matchup between the best and worst teams in the league.

Atlanta FaZe are the best team in the league at the moment, with a record of 18-3 in match play.

They face off against Toronto Ultra, the worst of the twelve teams in the league, who have a 4-10 record in matches so far.

The odds reflect this gap in quality, significantly.

On the moneyline, FaZe are -800, which is by far the largest amount that any team is favored by in the league today.

Ultra clock in with +425 odds at online sportsbooks, the day’s biggest underdog. On the spread, FaZe is favored by 2.5 games in the match, which is a major margin - all of the other matches today have a +/- 1.5 spread.

Faze -2.5 has +135 odds, while Toronto +2.5 has -180 odds.

This demonstrates the gap in quality between the teams significantly - effectively, this is a bet on whether or not Toronto will win one game in the match, or not.

If Toronto wins one game in the match, Toronto +2.5 cashes. The only way the bet does not cash is if FaZe sweeps them 3-0.

This is apparently a very likely occurrence given the gap in quality between the two teams, hence these odds.

CS:GO Blast Premier Spring

For now, the Preview turns its attention from Call of Duty to another shooting game esport, Counter-Strike Global Offensive.

In the CS:GO Blast Premier Spring competition, many elite teams face off.

Today’s highlighted match from this competition pits MIBR against Evil Geniuses and looks like a compelling betting opportunity.

The regular season has concluded, and the playoffs have begun, and this match is the finals of the upper bracket in the double-elimination format of the tournament.

The winner of this match will go on to the Grand Finals, while the loser will be put into the Lower Bracket to play FURIA.

The winner of that match will then face off with the winner of this match to determine the champion in the Grand Finals.

Thus, it should come as no surprise that this match looks closely contested - nearly even when it comes to odds.

Evil Geniuses are the slightest of favorites, with -120 odds, while MIBR clock in with -115 odds, right behind them.

The spread, as always in CS:GO betting, favors the favorite by 1.5 games in the match, serving as an alternate line.

Evil Geniuses -1.5 has +250 odds, while MIBR -1.5 has -360 odds.

This match looks great, and seems to be a good opportunity for live bettors as well. There is so little to differentiate the two teams right now, odds wise, but that might change as the match itself starts to play out.

Esports bettors would be well advised to keep a close eye on this one.

Happy Betting!
