Wednesday will be an extremely interesting day in the SEA region
Execration will fight 496 for the spot in the top 6, while Fnatic will fight TNC Predator in the region’s derby. Here are my picks and predictions for most interesting Wednesday matches.
Fnatic @ 1.66
This is the match of the day in the SEA region. Two big rosters battling for the first place in the rankings. Everything is on the line and everything is still open. Fnatic are 5-1 as they hold 1st place currently, while TNC Predators are 4-2 as they hold 3rd place. This is a match that will decide a lot of things in this division. If we check their last 5 matches, both teams have 1 loss and 4 wins in total. Except that, Fnatic didn’t win a single series vs TNC in the last 5 months or so. And they played 3 times. I somehow believe Fnatic has an edge in this one however. They looked slightly better in their last series. I would say this is 60-40 in favour of Fnatic, if you ask me.
Hellbear Smashers @ 1.20
Hellbear Smashers are on a hell of a win streak. They played Spider Pigz two times in the last 2 weeks, and they’ve won both times, with a clean 2-0 results. Hellbears are currently in 3rd place, but they have a high chance for top 2. If they take this series and a win, they will be in a great position for a 3 way tie with Creepwave and Brame on the top. All 3 teams will have 6 wins and 1 loss. Hellbears need to do anything they can to win this series with a 2-0. It won’t be easy however. Spider Pigz are known for surprises and they managed to take maps off to some decent squads. Hellbears Smashers ML big bet is safe here, but if you want a higher risk - higher reward, -1.5 handicap on Hellbears is a good pick too.
Team Secret @ 1.37
This must be the match of the day in the whole Dota scene. OG vs Secret is the match that all Dota 2 fans should watch and should be excited to watch. This will be an insane Dota and maybe two of the best teams in Europe facing it out. Team Secret are heavy favourites here, but let’s be careful. Secret is 6-0 in the division and they already secured their 1st place and Major Playoffs. OG is playing for top 4 placement and a chance for Major qualifiers. Pretty big thing. OG needs this win, Secret doesn’t. Will that affect Puppey’s decision to play on a lower pace or will they show themselves again as undisputed rulers of Europe? I think Puppey won’t allow any bad moves and plays, as he is the guy that wants to finish this group stage without a loss. OG with 3 wins and 3 losses was not very convincing, and I doubt that they can beat Secret if Secret plays their A game.
