This time we are moving away from tier 2 chinese tournament, and we will analyze few matches from ONE Esports Dota 2 World Pro Invitational Singapore, a premier tournament that is currently taking place at Singapore with $500,000 prize pool. Group stage just finished and now it’s ready for the playoffs, the most interesting part of the Dota 2 tournaments.
Alliance @ 1.56
Alliance is one of the two most dominant teams in this tournament for now. They have finished the BO2 group stage with four 2-0 wins and one 1-1 draw. They have beat TNC who are MDL Chengdu Major winners from 3 weeks ago. Alliance’s new lineups looks surprisingly solid, and Nikobaby is an amazing position 1 carry for them. Gambit had a pretty good year too, and they have entered into the new season and new patch pretty much with the same style. They are hard, strong team to beat, with classic CIS Dota 2 style of play. Gambit won 2nd place in their group B with three draws and two 2-0 victories. I believe in this moment Alliance is slightly better team and according to the odds, Alliance are favourites in this upper bracket round 1 match. I see a potential in betting on Alliance.
Evil Geniuses @ 1.71
Evil Geniuses are with Alliance, most dominant team here in this tournament, for now. They have won their group B with four 2-0 wins and one 1-1 draw, same with Alliance in group A. In the last transfer period, EG managed to create a superstar roster, recruiting Abed and Ramzes666. Seems like that lineup has started to do some work now, they have amazing potential when they are on peak form. Team Secret ended on 2nd place in group A with three 2-0 wins and two 1-1 draws. However, Secret are playing with a stand-in player for this whole tournament. MidOne, their ex player will stand in for YapzOr for the rest of the tournament. I am not sure how that will reflect to BO3 playoff stage since they are facing one of the strongest teams here. Odds on EG are amazing, and will bring a big return if EG will take this best of 3 upper bracket round 1 match.
