Day 3 of SEA The International 10 qualifiers is here.
TNC Predator and Fnatic are fighting in the upper bracket as expected, but the situation is getting hot in the lower bracket where 4 teams are fighting between each other to have a chance to get to a lower bracket finals.
Execration +1.5 @ 1.47
First half of 2021 was a wild one for both squads. They faced each other 5 times since February. OB Esports won 4 out of 5 times in those series, but 3 of those series went to all 3 maps. Last series they played in May went to OB Esports favour. Since they, Execration showed some amazing series at the AniMajor and because of those games I do think they have a good chance here. Execration continued with decent matches in this competition too, losing to BOOM with 1-2, but beating SMG and 496 in the lower bracket. OB Esports lost to Fnatic with 1-2 in the upper bracket round 2. Execration can surely take a map here, and this match can be very close.
Over 2.5 @ 1.93
Galaxy Racer actually has a very good Dota 2 roster. With 5 SEA players, they still didn’t lose a map here in this competition. They started in the lower bracket round 1, and they’ve beat Team Mystery, Omega and Motivate.Trust, all with 2-0 which is quite impressive. Yes, BOOM faced much stronger teams like Execration and TNC Predator and they showed their worth, but the Galaxy can make them a real problem here. I believe quality is on a BOOM side, and they are slight favourites, but this is 50-50, an even series. Any of those two teams can take it, so I think the safest way to go here would be to bet on Over 2.5 maps.
Fnatic +1.5 @ 1.42
This is another hard one. The match of the day belongs to TNC vs Fnatic for sure, two of the biggest Dota 2 teams in the SEA region. The rivalry is here, and the winning team will advance to the best of 5 grand finals, with one foot in The International. Really hard bet here and prediction and TNC Predator are favourites in this one, but Fnatic played good until now and they surely can cause some problems for TNC. This is another high potential 3 map series, but I think Fnatic taking a map is a pretty good bet here, safe with okay-ish odds, not too bad overall.
