OMEGA League: Europe Divine Division is the 2nd division of OMEGA League, the biggest Dota 2 league in the world currently going on. Top tier 2 and 3 teams are facing each other for a $50,000 prize pool and a possible spot in the higher Immortal Division. This Monday we will watch Day 5 of the group stage. Let’s analyze the matches.
Team Empire @ 1.37
Empire and Cyberium Seed will face off in group B. Cyberium Seed is actually doing quite good, and with 2 wins and 1 loss they are currently holding 3rd place in the group. They shocked us all with their win vs B8. For such a young squad with pretty unknown players they are doing pretty well for now. However, now they need to face Team Empire, one of the best tier 2 CIS squads. Empire lost in their first match vs HellRaisers, but that was expected. However, in this match they are big favourites, and I don’t see how they can lose this match. They are simply a much better team. Lower odds on Empire ML, but a sure win for them if you ask me.
Over 2.5 @ 1.90
This is the clash of the lowest ranked teams in the group A. Both teams have 2 losses out of 2 matches. Khan lost to Cyber Legacy and to Omegalil, while Voldemort lost to Extremum and Cyber Legacy. I would say both teams are equal in terms of skill, but with very unstable performance and players. Voldemort is one of the rare European (not CIS) squads in this tournament with only 1 Russian player. With this match being extremely close, my bet here would be Over 2.5. It’s highly possible that we see 3 maps here, as I think betting on the winner is risky here.
HellRaisers @ 1.96
On the other side, this is a clear battle for 1st place in the group B. Both teams have 2 wins out of 2 matches, 100% win ratio. While HellRaises have a little better map win-loss ratio, with 4 map wins, Unique managed to drop a map to Cyberium Seed. Overall, I do think HellRaisers are more experienced and more serious teams. Even though they are underdogs in this match, I personally would give them a slight chance to take this series. In the last 1 month, those two teams faced one time and that series went in HellRaises favour (2-1). I think HellRaisers have better individuals and better carry players, and if they show their best play, they will be able to beat Unique. Close match, but I’m going with a “underdog” here, at least according to odds and sportsbooks.
