Overwatch League 2021 Week 3 Predictions

Going into Overwatch League 2021 Week 3, there are quite a few big games going on. If you’re looking at Overwatch League betting, then there are teams that look set to have a good week going into the matches.

Of the more anticipated games coming up over the weekend, Washington Justice and Toronto Defiant will play out the Match of the Week in my book. Coming off of their great performance last week, this isn’t too surprising. Both teams are coming into the season strong, and this match will determine plenty. Four maps will be played at the very least, meaning any high map count bet is a good pick.

Saturday’s match-up between Shanghai Dragons and New York Excelsior looks set to be one of the closest over the weekend. The current odds for the match have them essentially neck and neck, with Dragons edging them out briefly at some esports bookmakers. This is a game which is going to be close to call, but SHD look like they have the edge over NYXL. As the biggest match on Saturday, it’s a great example of why you should shop around to find the best odds on a match, that difference in price can really add up.

The Overwatch League 2021 Week 3 is set to have some unpredictable games, and these two predictions should be enough to net you x5 in return if you tie them together in an accumulator. Check out Betway for updated odds.
