Japan Invitational R6S Semifinals Betting Predictions

CYCLOPS athlete gaming vs IGZIT

Japan Invitational R6S Betting Preview

While IGZIT may be the third seed from the Japan Regular Season and Cyclops athlete gaming is the fifth seed, the R6S esports odds favour CYCLOPS as one of the best Rainbow Six Siege teams.

Likely, this is thanks to CYCLOPS’ impressive performance earlier in the competition, where they swept aside the first seed of the competition – SCARZ.

Meanwhile, IGZIST has performed as expected.

Overall, Cyclops is expected to maintain their peaking performance and win this semifinal.

  • Predictions: CYCLOPS athlete gaming (1-0) IGZIST
  • Odds: CYCLOPS athlete gaming Outright Win (-303)IGZIST Outright Win (+205)
  • Betting Site: GG.Bet

SCARZ vs MNM Gaming

As we’ve already stated, SCARZ are your first seeded team from the Japan League 2023 and an esports betting favourite. While they suffered a surprising loss to CYCLOPS, they managed to bounce back and survive in the Lower Bracket.

Their next match, however, is against a unique opponent – the invited European squad of MNM Gaming, that recently placed 5-8th at BLAST R6 Major Copenhagen 2023. It’s thanks to this international experience that MNM Gaming are favoured here.

  • Predictions: SCARZ (0-1) MNM Gaming
  • Odds: SCARZ Outright Win (+359), MNM GamingOutright Win (-625)
  • Betting Site: GG.Bet

Conclusion – The Overall Winner?

It seems that the single non-Japanese team, seems to be the best team at this event, being favoured over the number one seeded Japanese team.

Accordingly, predictions do have MnM Gaming coming out on top, with SCARZ and CYCLOPS battling it out for second place.
