In this Dota 2 daily betting tips, we will focus solely on one match. DreamLeague Season 13: The Leipzig Major is going to the latest stage. On Saturday we will watch winners / upper bracket finals. Let’s analyse that match in details.
Vici Gaming @ 1.74
What a clash. DreamLeague upper bracket finals are going to be crazy. Probably two of the best Dota 2 teams in the world right now will face each other and will fight for a place in the grand finals of DreamLeague season 13. Yes, the winner of this match will finish at top 2 minimum and will secure at least $160,000 from the prize pool. Stakes are high. Most probably this is going to be the match of the tournament for now. Strangely enough, both teams are coming from the same group. Group B was extremely hard group for the other two teams - beastcoast and CHAOS. They knew they had no chance to finish in the top 2 positions - positions that lead to the upper bracket.
Team Secret is the only team that is unbeaten in this tournament for now. What an impressive run they had. First place in the group B with 2 wins, then upper bracket run through Fnatic and Alliance. Can they be stopped now? Possible, but it will be so hard. Vici Gaming ended up on 2nd place in that same group, right behind the Team Secret. Funnily enough, Secret beat them in their group match with a close 2-1 score. After that, playoff stage came and Vici Gaming engaged their beast mode beating their Chinese brothers Invictus Gaming 2-1 and North American fan favourites Evil Geniuses with a clean 2-0. If you watched Vici vs EG, you could see a simply different Vici compared to the group stage Vici. Their plays and teamfights were just unbelievably good, almost perfect at some point. Even though they didn’t always have better drafts than their opponents, it doesn’t matter for them. They just rotate and stick together throughout the whole match and they just “eat” those teamfights easily.
I think Team Secret is better at the drafting stage, but Vici has better rotations and team fights, no matter what heroes they play. Overall, I think VG had harder road to the upper bracket finals than Team Secret, as I do think that Invictus Gaming and Evil Geniuses are much harder opponents then Fnatic and Alliance, but that doesn’t show anything specifically. Since Vici is playing vs such a strong team now, team that has already beat them, they will need to concentrate on draft more than ever, otherwise Puppey will “kill” their picks with his knowledge and drafting abilities. I think this match in this stage is even for both teams, but I’m giving a slight advantage to Vici Gaming. They have really impressed me during last 2 matches. Hopefully, all 3 maps will be played. My pick here is: Vici Gaming to win the match.
