Jakson considered the frontrunner by the bookies
The American had a slow start for this season, but he gathered the pace on the right time of the year. As such, he has a very good chance at the eChampions League to prove he is the best. In round 32, Jakson knocked out one of the tournament favorites MsDossary with a 5-2 victory. On the next day, he met with Paps in the last-16 and won the game 9-8.
Jakson does not have many dangerous players to worry about, as Nicola99FC and F2Tekkz, the two top FIFA gamers have been eliminated. Besides online sportsbooks in Spain consider Jakson the hot favourite to win the title, with 3.70 odds available at Unibet Sportsbook.
XLevVinken, marcuzo, and chris might pose a threat
The Netherland’s xLevVinken (3.75), marcuzo (4.50), and chris (5.50) are among the potential challengers who could pose a threat. XLevVinken has thrashed Tore (4-1) in round 32, and Cihan (7-2) in the round of 16, to secure a seat in the Final. He will meet with marcuzo in the final. Yet, it is hard to predict who will advance, with marcuzo being the one who eliminated Nicolas99FC.
Chris has also shown a real pedigree on his way to the final, winning at both Damie and Frontale_FIFA. However, it remains to be seen if any one of the three talented players xLevVinken, marcuzo, and chris can stand firm against Jakson.
