It's the last Dota 2 Champions League 2021 Season 2 group stage day.
In the final 3 matches of the group stage we will see which teams will move on to the next stage and which teams will drop off. 2 teams are already secured for the playoffs in division 1 and 2 teams are secured for playoffs in lower division 2. Here are my picks and predictions.
Spider Pigz +1.5 @ 1.67
Team Unique did pretty well throughout the whole season, but now they need this win to secure their top 6 spot. Playing vs Spider Pigz won’t be easy at all, but they are favourites in this series. Spider Pigz are in 7th place and they are on the edge of going to the playoffs division 2. However, if they take this series they have a big chance of finishing in the top 6, which will be a big achievement for them. Spider Pigz are not a bad team at all, and I doubt they will give up easily, so going +1.5 handicap on them is a pretty good pick with a pretty good bet.
Fantastic Five +1.5 @ 1.73
I don’t understand how Winstrike is such a favourite in this series. Winstrike has secured 9th place, they were one of the worst performing teams in this tournament’s group stage, but they are still favoured to win this, which is pretty weird if you ask me. Fantastic Five actually showed some really amazing matches and with 3 wins and 5 losses they still have a slight chance of finishing top 6, depending on the other results. And because of that I do think that Fantastic Five taking a map off Winstrike (at least) is an amazing bet here. Odds are pretty high and this is a very unique opportunity.
Chicken Fighters @ 1.46
I have no doubt here. I would say that Chicken Fighters are one of the most quality teams here in this tournament, and they are playing better and better as the tournament goes by. They are ranked 4th place while V Gaming is ranked 6th place with both teams still fighting for top 6 finish. I think Chicken Fighters can have a clean victory here. V Gaming managed to surprise a few of other teams like Spider Pigz and Fantastic Five, but vs Chicken Fighters I don’t think they have any real chance. Taking all into consideration, odds on CF ML win are amazing. We can’t complain if we see how CF are developing and playing better and better.
