Second playoff day of ONE Esports Dota 2 World Pro Invitational Singapore continues today with two amazing matches in the lower bracket round 1.
Virtus.Pro @ 1.80
Virtus.Pro vs NaVi will be the first match in the lower bracket round 1. Luckily, this match is best of 3, which highly increases betting potential and quality of the games. Both teams are from CIS region and both teams have changed their lineups and players inbetween seasons. Their last match was 20 days ago in DreamLeague Season 13, where NaVi took the clear win with a 2-0 score. Both teams ended their group stage with the same score - 2 wins, 2 losses and 1 draw which is very interesting. This is 50-50 match I would say, so be careful while betting. If I must pick, Virtus.Pro is good bet for me, odds are amazing.
ViCi Gaming @ 1.41
Last time those two teams played, was in the grand finals of MDL Chengdu Major where TNC beat ViCi with 3-1 result and became freshly minted Dota2 Major champions. That was almost 1 month ago and TNC is now performing very poorly this tournament. With 3 losses, they were positioned at 4th place in group A. On the other side, ViCi didn’t do any better then TNC. They were placed at 3rd place in group B with just one loss vs Evil Geniuses. I think that the form of TNC Predator is moving down slowly and I’m not sure if that’s because of the new patch or because of some internal team problems. I see ViCi Gaming as a favourite to take this best of 3 match and move forward to the next round of the losers bracket. Sadly in that case, TNC Predator is going home as the last placed team in the competition.
