Esports: Weekly preview

Another busy week of Esports action is on the cards with big events in the worlds of Rainbow Six and Counter Strike: Global Offensive to look forward to.

It is the turn of Rainbow Six first of all with the Jonkoping Major in Sweden starting on Monday and running throughout the week.

And on Wednesday, attention turns to the latest big event in CS:GO - the BLAST Premier Fall Finals - and a lot can be deduced from the teams based on recent performances at the IEM Rio Major in Brazil.

Those two events dominate the week but on Friday, the Free Fire World Series also starts in Bangkok.

Monday 21st November

The Rainbow Six Jonkoping Major is the standout event at the beginning of the week, starting its group stage on Monday.

The major tournament features 16 teams competing across four groups in Jonkoping and Stockholm with a prize pool of $500,000 on the line.

In the group phase, all matches are a best-of-one format and the top two teams in each group advance to the playoffs.

One of the closest betting heats of the day in the tournament is the clash between Wolves Esports and FaZe Clan, who are -110 and -125 respectively to win the encounter.

The tournament begins with a double-elimination group stage in which one team from each of the two groups will be eliminated before the knockout stage.

The three other teams in each section will then progress to the tournament's playoffs and Wednesday features the first two matches in each group. 

In Group A, out-of-form FaZe Clan are -225 to beat OG, who are +162 to come out on top, while IEM Rio Major runners-up Heroic can be backed at -250 to get the better of Ninjas in Pyjamas.

As for Group B, Natus Vincere are expected to overpower shots Fluxo and Team Liquid are +100 to beat G2 Esports.
