The second week of KEEMSTAR’s Friday Fortnite tournament is upon us on Friday, June 7, as a whole host of celebrity gamers (and The Mob) compete for a prize pool of $20,000. Who’s the favorite according to the betting companies?

The return of the weekly pub stomping competition has been well received by the competitive Fortnite community, who have grown somewhat tired of the increasingly random end games. That means players will be battling to get the most kills in the same round as their opponents, rather than trying to eliminate them.

Week two promises to be an action-packed event as two of the internet’s biggest stars link up, with YouTube’s most subscribed individual, PewDiePie, teaming up with Twitch’s most followed, Ninja.

Heading into week two the betting odds on Bet365 show Ninja and PewDiePie at the absolutely laughable odds of 8/1, which puts them as one of the favorites despite PewDiePie playing the game about three times in his life, leaving Ninja effectively playing solo. If there was ever proof that you can’t trust betting odds on esports quite yet, this is it.

Meanwhile, the actual favorites are Mr Savage/Benjfishy at 5/1, Kamo/ISSA at 6/1, and Dubs/Megga 7/1, alongside Mongraal/Mitro also at 7/1.

Heading down the pack you start getting more value for your money with the likes of NateHill and Funk at 10/1, Myth and Pouch at 20/10, and Jarvis and Perfect Tilt at a whopping 25/1.

Of course, you if want to waste your money and you’re not betting on PewDiePie, you can donate to your local betting company by selecting Froste and Mako at 66/1, which is actually very generous odds all things considered. 

You can watch the event via our dedicated Friday Fortnite Coverage Hub.
