RLCS 2023 Spring NA Regional 2 Betting Preview

Following the Spring Open, the next local event for North American Rocket League is the Spring Cup. Referred to as the RLCS 2023 Spring NA Regional 2 by esports betting sites, this is another unique opportunity for teams to earn RLCS Points and prize.

Taking place between 19th May and 21st May, the online event by Psyonix features the top 16 teams in the region. Teams have had to earn their spot through two possible avenues – here’s a look:

  • RLCS Point Ranking – Gen.G Mobil1 Racing, FaZe Clan, G2 Esports, Complexity Gaming, Version1, Spacestation Gaming, OpTic Gaming, Dignitas
  • Closed Qualifier – FURIA Esports, KOI, hey bro, Shopify Rebellion, M80, Zero2One, NRG, Team AXLE

Moreover, this is another opportunity for teams to earn RLCS points allowing them to then qualify for the Spring Invitational – another esports betting opportunity.

Once in the Spring Invitiational, teams can then seed to the international Spring Major.

With how pivotal the RLCS 2023 Spring NA Regional 2 event looks to be, we’ve isolated three matches to look forward to this weekend:

May 19th 2023

  • Dignitas vs FURIA Esports (19:00 CEST)
  • OpTic Gaming vs M80 (19:00 CEST)
  • Shopify Rebellion vs Version1 (19:00 CEST)

Seated in a double elimination bracket, these matches are only a number of opening Upper Bracket Quarterfinals taking place.

In order to preview these matches, we’ve used the publically available odds as provided by Thunderpick. As outlined in our Thunderpick review, the esports betting platform is a unique means of esports betting through cryptocurrency.

RLCS 2023 Spring NA Regional 2 – Odds and Predictions

Dignitas vs FURIA Esports

First up, we have a match-up which looks to go one way for Rocket League betting. With both teams hoping to climb the ladder of RLCS points, Dignitas need a win here after placing 13-16th at the Spring Open.

Meanwhile, FURIA Esports managed to finish 5-6th at the most recent event, putting the in a good spot both for this match and also for the whole tournament.

Accordingly, the RLCS odds favour them greatly here against Dignitas.

  • Predictions: Dignitas (1-3) FURIA Esports
  • Odds: Dignitas Outright Win (2.70), FURIA Esports Outright Win (1.40)
  • Betting Site: Thunderpick

OpTic Gaming vs M80

Next up, we have the likes of OpTic Gaming who placed third at the most recent Spring Open event in North America.

Moreover, they’ve continued this form after failing to qualify for the Winter Major, a disappointment on their behalf.

Currently, the only thing in their way is a fisty M80 side. Although M80 only placed 9-12th at the Spring Open, they have a shot to make some noise here. However, the Rocket League odds favour OpTic Gaming in this match-up.

  • Predictions: OpTic Gaming (3-1) M80
  • Odds: OpTic Gaming Outright Win (1.52), M80 Outright Win (2.35)
  • Betting Site: Thunderpick

Shopify Rebellion vs Version1

This third and final match is perhaps the most tightly contested of the opening Upper Bracket Quarterfinals at this event.

Indeed, Shopify Rebellion placed 7-8th and Version1 placed 9-12th at the recent Spring Open.

Bearing this in mind, this esports betting opportunity favours Version1 despite their falling short at the last event thanks to recent team changes which have set things straight.

Yet, Shopify Rebellion won’t be going down easily.

  • Predictions: Shopify Rebellion (2-3) Version1
  • Odds: Shopify Rebellion Outright Win (2.70), Version1 Outright Win (1.40)
  • Betting Site: Thunderpick
