We are starting a new week with day 8 of Dota 2 Champions League 2021 Season 2 matches. Here are my picks and predictions for 3 D2CL matches today.
Team Unique @ 1.34
Those two teams faced already in the same tournament, but Season 1. Team Unique took a 1-0 victory back in April. This should be a one way game, as Team Unique are standing pretty strong with 3 wins and 1 loss, while Fantastic Five are holding 8th place in the group stage with only 1 win out of 4 matches. Team Unique lost only to Hellbear Smashers, the best team in the competition so far, and there is a big difference and skill gap between those two teams. This should be a clean win for Unique. Big bet on Unique ML.
Spider Pigz +1.5 @ 1.57
Nemiga are big favourites here, but purely because of slightly better matchups in this league, for now. 2 wins, 1 loss for Nemiga so far, while SPider Pigz won only 3 maps, out of 12. 1 win, 3 losses for them. With GeneraL on position 3 as standin, I do believe Spider Pigz have the power to take on any team here, but they need a little bit of luck. As Nemiga are favourites here and odds are kinda low, handicap +1.5 on Spider Pigz would be a logical choice. They can do it for sure, and they are capable of “surprising” Nemiga.
Chicken Fighters @ 1.50
Actually, I’m pretty satisfied with the odds on the Chicken Fighters victory here. They surely have a quality EU lineup, and they can do good things on the tier 2 EU Dota scene. They are 2-1 in this group stage so far, and Winstrike is 1-3, looking really bad. Winstrike is playing with a slightly modified lineup, and here I see a chance for Chicken Fighters. I do believe they will continue their good streak after beating Gambit and Fantastic Five 5-0. Odds are decent for a ML bet here.
