We are opening the new week with a Chinese i-League 2021 match and two EU / CIS DPC matches
Royal Never Give Up -1.5 @ 1.83
This will be a clash between the 2nd and 8th ranked teams in the league. RNG is firmly holding 2nd place with 5 matches behind them already. With 3 wins and 2 losses they are not looking too bad. Especially if we take into consideration that they already played the strongest teams in the league. Magma on the other side, is the weakest team in the league and they are holding the last place with 4 straight losses. From 9 maps played, they only won 1, which is terrible. RNG already faced magma in their first match in the league scoring 2-0. While I do believe this time there will be the same situation, I think that we need to be careful here. Magma is surely capable of surprising and RNG lost their last series to EHOME. Risky bet, but if you want safer go big on RNG ML. Lower odds, safer returns.
B8 +1.5 @ 1.41
NoTechies with a new lineup are slight favourites here, but I don’t believe too much in them. This will be an open series for sure and I do believe B8 can surely take a map here. They are one of the worst teams in the DPC in the least seasons, but this could be a team that they can beat actually. Their first series went to 3 maps vs Prosti Esli, but they’ve lost it. I hardly believe that B8 will do anything in this league, but I do think they can fight out vs such teams as NoTechies. NoTechies is a squad captained by a famous Solo, but their new lineup didn’t have a good time in their first series. They couldn’t beat Nemiga, as they were crushed with 0-2. B8 will have a real chance here, at least to bring it to 3 maps.
Vikin.gg -1.5 @ 1.40
No Bounty Hunters are already 1-0 in this division, but I don’t think they will have too much chance vs Vikin.gg who are a team few levels above them. Actually, No Bounty Hunters are one of the weakest teams here, together with Hippomaniacs, a team that they’ve beat in the round 1. Vikin.gg have a win to, 2-1 vs Level Up. This will be a chance for them to slightly start leaning to the top of the rankings, because that’s the most logical thing here. They are the favourites to take 1st place in the division, and they must show that here, especially vs lower level teams like No Bounty Hunters. Handicap is a good way to go, anything else doesn’t make sense. Terrible odds otherwise.
