Esports day-by-day: The action comes thick and fast

The ESL Pro League Season 17 playoffs begin this week, along with the Spring Splits of League of Legends, while there is also plenty of action to come in VALORANT.


The LPL has plenty of big matches at the start of the week as Ninjas in Pyjamas take on Royal Never Give Up at LPL 2023 Spring. The Ninjas will have some work to do as they are all but eliminated from Playoff contention. RNG look to be the best choice at 8/11 odds to cover a -1.5 spread.

The second big match in LPL is between JD Gaming and LGD Gaming. JD Gaming will try to avoid an upset by the less than stellar LGD Gaming who have struggled throughout the Spring split. JD Gaming at 4/11 to take down LGD at 2/1.


LPL action continues on Tuesday with matches between OMG and Top Esports and Team WE against Weibo Gaming.

Those aren't the biggest matches of Tuesday's Esports action though as the ESL Pro League begins its playoffs. 

Natus Vincere take on 00NATION to begin the playoff stage of the ESL Pro League Season 17. That is the first of three matches on Tuesday with FURIA taking on Fnatic and paiN Gaming battling Liquid in the final match of the day.

Natus, who have been a yearly contender in the ESL Pro League, look like a smart choice against 00NATION as they are 4/9 to cover the spread, while 00NATION are 13/8.

Liquid will have some ground to make up at 1/1 to cover against paiN Gaming who sit at  8/11 to cover. G2 Esports (-1.5) will try to outlast Movistar Riders (+1.5).


The winners from Tuesday's action at ESL Pro League Season 17 will advance to round two of the playoffs with plenty of talented teams waiting in the wings. Those teams include Outsiders, FaZe Clan, MOUZ and ENCE. FaZe Clan have some work to do as they will see either FURIA or Fnatic in their next match.

Things don't look easy for many of the teams in this second round of the playoffs, as four teams await them on the third day of the playoffs. Time will tell which teams will advance from this group of teams.
