*Odds updated on January 29
Fortnite has attracted a top crop of personalities, from Dr. Lupo to Drake, to Tyler Blevins, to Josh Hart, the list goes on and on.
Epic Games, the developer behind Fortnite, vowed $100 million for the 2018/2019 competitive season, and the company continues to promote tournaments involving famous personalities.
Bringing the game and NFL closer together is a perfect opportunity to seek where the world of “esports” and traditional sports overlap. Take for example, Bugha, the youngster who won the first Fortnite World Cup in 2019, packing $3 million within an hour.
The teenagers is now one of the strongest contenders for the cup and he has chosen to team up with none other than Juju Smith-Schuster, a Pittsburg Steelers player who even played for FaZe Clan, an esports competitive outfit, for a while.
Yet, the pair aren’t the only one who have a decent shot. NICKMERCS and Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Mike Evans have also been hitting it off on stream for a while now. The pair definitely know how to play together and they are comfortable blowing enemy avatars away together.
