Odds as of September 7 at Betway
Favorites To Win The Overwatch League Summer Showdown East 2022
Shanghai Dragons (-227)
They are the runaway leaders in the Overwatch League Summer Showdown East 2022 title odds table, and with good reason. They are on a six-game winning streak and their Wrecking Ball and Sombra-focused composition has been far too hard for teams in the East to contend with.
They have been undefeated in the APAC region and dropped just one map throughout the qualifiers. They are the real deal, and rightly the favorites to win the Overwatch League Summer Showdown East.
Seoul Dynasty (+225)
The Seoul Dynasty are another team from the APAC region who head into this undefeated, and they’ve shown in the past that they can spring a big surprise. It’s going to take a lot for them to outperform the Shanghai Dragons, but it isn’t beyond the realm of possibility to see them win the Overwatch League Summer Showdown East 2022. They recently lost 3-0 to the Dragons, however, and that might be playing on their minds a little.
Value Picks To Win The Overwatch League Summer Showdown East
Philadelphia Fusion (+1600)
They had a great match against the Seoul Dynasty that went to five maps, which shows their pedigree, but they’ll face tougher challenges here. It’s hard to see them overcome the top two picks on the Overwatch League Summer Showdown East 2022 title odds table.
They have a win rate of 53 percent, which goes to show that they are no pushovers, but winning this competition seems like far too big an ask.
Guangzhou Charge (+2000)
The third-seeded Guangzhou Charge will be quite happy to have qualified and it’s hard to see them having a say in the Overwatch League Summer Showdown East 2022 title odds. They have a win rate of only 32 percent in the Overwatch League, which isn’t going to be enough to win this competition.
Betting Strategy For The Overwatch League Summer Showdown East 2022
This is one of the easier strategies for Overwatch League bettors but it won’t rake the greatest rewards. The Shanghai Dragons are far superior to every other team that’ll be participating in the Overwatch League Summer Showdown East 2022. They recently beat the Seoul Dynasty 3-0 to secure the top seed in the Summer Showdown. Dragons support Leejaegon was in great form on the day, and should have a great time in this little showdown as well.
The odds on offer for the other sides are decent, but it’ll take a miracle for them to win the Overwatch League Summer Showdown East 2022. Best to just go with the Shanghai Dragons here and look for other bets that might rake in the big rewards.
