April 29th, 2020 Betting Tips: AEW, Esports

We got the win yesterday taking 100 Thieves in CS:GO. We’re back to CS:GO Road to Rio picks again today.

888 Sport has been posting odds for wrestling on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays and tonight is no different. Tonight is one of the biggest AEW Dynamite episodes of the pandemic with two huge matches on the card.

The AEW TNT Championship title tournament has been carrying the promotion through this time and tonight is the huge semifinals. The winner of these two matches will face off to crown the first ever AEW TNT championship at the next pay-per-view, Double or Nothing.

One of the semifinals is Lance Archer taking on Dustin Rhodes. Archer has been the dominating force since signing with AEW and he is not likely to lose to a 50-year-old man here. He is a huge, huge favorite at -3335 with Dustin at +800. That is not really worth betting on either side as the payoff to the underdog is not big enough to justify the odds of it actually happening.

The other semifinal match is one that I have a pick on below.

AEW Betting Tips:

Darby Allin and Cody Rhodes is the other semifinal match and this is where I am seeing a ton of value. These two wrestling each other has been a huge part of the lore of AEW thus far with Darby’s debut being a draw against Cody at Fyter Fest. Darby built himself up more and more since then, and got a rematch with Cody in January that he lost. This is definitely something that has been eating a way at Darby and I have trouble seeing him losing this one.

There are a couple of things at work here that have me looking towards Darby. I think Darby could be the biggest homegrown star in AEW’s history and him losing here, to a made man in Cody, would be a clear step back. This tournament has been all chalk thus far with no upsets in any of the matches and this would be a good time to pull that trigger. Also, in Cody’s AEW career he has lost a lot of big matches to him. He wrestled Chris Jericho and lost. He wrestled MJF and lost. He’s not a closer and I think that’s a part of who he is. I can see him taking another loss here and Darby getting the upset. It would mean a lot more to him that Cody.

Bet Darby Allin +300 at 888 (Americans try BetOnline)

CS:GO ESL Road to Rio Betting Tips:

Bad News Bears have been a somewhat surprising team thus far. They regularly beat the lower tier teams and even took a map off of Liquid in one of their matches. They take on MIBR here who have been incosistent of late. They had a huge choke at Flashpoint and have been just an inconsistent team. I am not quite ready to go with the Bad News Bears to win this one, but I will take them +1.5.

Bet Bad News Bears +1.5 (-170)
