Today we are focused purely on CIS DPC divisions. We will watch one series from the lower division, and two series from the upper division. AS Monaco Gambit vs Winstrike will surely be the match of the day in those divisions.
HellRaisers -1.5 @ 1.66
This is a very risky bet, but only logical. B8 is surely one of the weakest teams here. With their mixed roster and unknown players like watson on position 1 and Dendi who’s gameplay is not what it used to be, they are doomed to lose against teams like HellRaisers. HR are absolute favourites here, it’s just the matter of question now if they will be able to drop a map or not. I think HR lineup is amazing, they still didn’t utilize it, but they can easily do it. They are on a 3 match winning streak where they didn’t lose a single map. Yes, those teams were lower level, but still it’s a good sign going into this match. HellRaisers 2-0 is my prediction here.
VirtusPro -1.5 @ 1.35
VirtusPro are definitely one of the favourites here to take 1st place in the upper division. And they will fight hard with NaVi, Gambit and Spirit for it. VirtusPro don’t have a gameplay that they had a few months back, where they were crushing every CIS team. Their Major performance was a disaster too. However, in this league they have 2 wins out of 2 matches, 2-1 vs Gambit and 2-0 vs PuckChamp. Unique is a team in the level of PuckChamp and if VP will play seriously they won’t lose a map. I think their win is something that will happen pretty surely, I just hope that Unique can’t surprise them, because let’s be honest, Unique has a pretty scary lineup too, and they are playing better and better. Very risky handicap to bet on.
AS Monaco Gambit @ 1.42
Surprisingly, Gambit is knocked down to the bottom of the rankings. With 3 losses in 3 series, they are catching their last train not to end up on the bottom. They surely have the quality to be in top 4 without a doubt. With NoOne, AfterLife and Sonneiko they are looking very scary on paper, but their lineup still didn’t engage like they should or could. Hopefully we will see that engagement in this series. It will be hard for them, as Winstrike is not an easy team to beat nowadays. Winstrike won against EXTREMUM and Unique and they took a map off strong Spirit, so they surely will have something to say here. 3 maps are possible here, but I think quality is on Gambit’s side here.
