Competitive play for the Fortnite World Cup Finals begins on July 27 with the Duo Finals. The Solo Finals follow on Sunday, July 28. Since sports gambling is now legal in multiple states, so is esports gambling. There are a number of sites that post Fortnite World Cup Finals betting odds. They opened as expected for both Duos and Solos.
Turner “Tfue” Tenney opened as the Solos favorite. Thomas “Tschinken” Hörak/Klaus “Stompy” Konstanzer opened as the Duos favorites. Since opening, Benjy “Benjyfishy” David Fish/Martin “MrSavage” Foss Andersen closed the betting gap between the top duo. Now both sit at +800 odds. Neither betting favorite is a surprise. The duo of Stompy and Tschinken qualified all five weeks of the duo Online Opens. Three of the weeks the team finished first. Benjyfishy and MrSavage also qualified multiple times. Their play was just as impressive. On the other hand, Tfue has experience at LAN tournaments and qualified twice himself during Online Opens. The Fortnite World Cup Finals betting odds are likely to change over time as bets come in, but those mentioned above should remain the favorites.
Behind the favorites sit a number of top-tier players. Kyle “Mongraal” Jackson, Stompy, Danny “Dubs” Walsh, Benjyfishy, and MrSavage all have odds of +1800 or lower. According to Las Vegas, these players stand the best chance to win the Fortnite World Cup. All performed incredibly well during the Online Opens and now look to finish their run in New York City. Additionally, these players are all young. None of the mentioned players are over 16 years old.
The player with the most surprising odds is Timothy “Bizzle” Miller. He is currently the highest overall winner in Fortnite competitions. Though not far behind, Bizzle has the 7th best odds at +2000. With his experience at LAN tournaments, do not be surprised to see Bizzle hold up a trophy at the end of the event.
Here is the complete list of Fortnite World Cup Solo betting odds from Bovada:
Jack “sozmann” Lehane has the best odds of all at +15,000. Sozmann is a player from the Oceania region. He qualified in the final week of Solos Week 9 and performed well in other weeks, including two other top 50 finishes. He will play the underdog and earn himself as well as bettors a lot of money if he wins.
The odds for the Duos teams are much less spread out. Two teams sit at +12,500 with the worst odds, Bell/Scarlet and Zoubiri “BadSniper” Naofel/Philippe “Oslo” Carvalho. Bell and Scarlet are two players for Crazy Raccoon out of Japan. They qualified in the first week of Duos. BadSniper and Oslo are from the European region, which makes their odds surprising. The European region is considered to be one of the two top regions including North America East.
Most gambling websites do not provide odds for all 49 teams. It remains to be seen whether or not they will be posted in the days leading up to the event. Here is the complete list of Fortnite World Cup Duos betting odds from Bovada:
Two teams to watch out for are Brendan “Falconer” Falconer/Arkhram and Rocco “Saf” Morales/Williams “Zayt” Aubin. Both teams performed consistently well throughout the qualifiers and other tournaments. They work well as a team and are more than capable mechanically.
