WePlay! Pushka League Season 1 is going into the 5th play day. In CIS group we already saw 5 exciting matches so far, while in the EU group we saw 6 matches. It’s time for the day 6 of the division 1 with one EU and two CIS matches. Let’s see what can happen on Monday.
OG.Seed +1.5 @ 1.64
In their last 3 matches, OG.Seed didn’t manage to take a map off Team Nigma. However, that was a long time ago and today the situation is different. Nigma was favoured in their match vs Liquid on Sunday, however they’ve managed to continue their bad form, and dropped the series 1-2. They didn’t impress, their play is so unreliable, and they get lost going to mid / late game. I see an opportunity here for OG.Seed to take a map off Nigma. In their first match in this league OG.Seed lost to the new NiP squad (ex Chicken Fighters), but they really had impressive wins vs Chicken Fighters and Vikin.gg not a long time ago. If you catch decent odds on Nigma (1.30 or more), go with that, but otherwise, OG.Seed taking a map is a way to go. They have the ability to do it.
VP.Prodigy @ 1.44
VP.Prodigy really look amazing lately. Since Virtus.Pro formed their academy squad, they are looking better and better with each game. From their last 5 Dota 2 official matches, they have all 5 wins, and some of them are really impressive like a 3-1 vs Vikin.gg or wins vs Spirit and Unique. Team Spirit has already 1 win in this league as they have beat B8, probably the weakest team in the CIS group. For VP.Prodigy this will be the first match, and I do think they can open their league participation with a win over Team Spirit. I must admit, Team Spirit was amazing in the ESL One LA Online league, where they’ve managed to get some impressive wins and finish 2nd in the group right after Team Secret. However, after that they have somewhat lost themselves. Maybe the new patch affected them heavily and they are not yet comfortable with it. However, it seems like VP.Prodigy surely is.
FlyToMoon @ 2.07
Interestingly enough, those two teams faced each other last time 4 months ago, and both times NaVi lost to FlyToMoon. NaVi has looked terrible in the last weeks, they have only 1 win from their last 5 matches. In the WePlay! Pushka League Season 1 they have 1 win and 1 loss. However, that win was vs definitely the weakest team in the group, B8. They have lost to HellRaisers, the same as FlyToMoon. On the other side, FlyToMoon showed some signs of a nice team play and communication versus Virtus.Pro on Sunday, where they’ve managed to pull off a map 2 win. They lost the match in the end, but anyway, in the current state, taking a map of Virtus.Pro, one of the strongest teams in Europe right now is a big success. I believe they might surprise NaVi here, and if NaVi haven’t changed anything in their drafts and gameplay, there is a high possibility for FTM here.
