For the end of the week, we have 3 series in the Dota 2 Champions League 2021 Season 2. Here are my picks and predictions for Friday.
Winstrike +1.5 @ 1.72
CIS clashes are always interesting and results are not always as we expect them to see. Unique are pretty big favourites here as they are doing a very good job in the league. 5 wins and only 1 loss did put them in 2nd place in the table. Yes, they will most probably win here, but Winstrike is always a dangerous team to play versus. I’m relying on Winstrike surprising Unique on at least one map. Odds on handicap are amazing. If you want a safer bet, go with Unique ML.
V Gaming @ 1.40
V Gaming are heavy favourites here and if you can find some decent odds on their victory, you should make a 5 unit bet on them. V Gaming surprised some teams like Winstrike and Spider Pigz as they beat them 2-0. They even managed to take a map off Heallbear Smashers, which was one of two maps Hellbear Smashers lost, from 16 in total. Fantastic Five are at the bottom of the table with 2 wins and 4 losses, and only 4 maps won out of 12.
PuckChamp -1.5 @ 1.63
Those two teams faced each other in May, in the ESL One Summer qualifiers, where PuckChamp won their best of 1 series. PuckChamp’s last victory was vs Chicken Fighters (2-0), and they are holding 4th place in the group stage right now. Fantastic Five is one of the weakest teams in the league, and I doubt they can even take a map off PuckChamp. -1.5 handicap on PuckChamp is a good bet here, as I do think PuckChamp has a high chance of taking this series 2-0.
