As most of the DPC group stages ended over the weekend, today we will follow the deciding match in the Snow Sweet Snow tournament.
Hellbear Smashers @ 1.26
This is the match of the day for sure. Even if it’s not a DPC series, Snow Sweet Snow tournament become a real hit. Nice quality Dota, with some decent up and coming teams that can bring out some really nice young talented players. Hellbear Smashers are the best team in group A of the tournament and with 6 wins out of 6 matches they are currently holding 1st place in the rankings.
As the top two teams in each group advance to the Upper Bracket, PuckChamp is here to make things somehow complicated. They are 5-1, and they are struggling to get their top 2 final placement. Sadly, the team that will lose this series will finish in 3rd place in the group A and will be placed in the lower bracket of the event playoffs. In the last month these two teams played 3 times and Hellbear Smashers won all 3 series. 2-0, 2-0 and 3-1 were the results, so this means they’ve dropped only 1 map out of 8 in total, which is impressive.
Hellbears are a really experienced squad with Misery (Rasmus) and Ace on the helm, and their stack is working well for now, for this level of Dota of course. It’s very risky to bet on handicaps here, because I think the odds for each handicap to hit are 50-50. In such an important match anything can happen. PuckChamp will have their chance to take a map for sure, but I highly doubt they will take the series. Hellbear Smashers are heavy favourites here and they will do all they can do to finish 1st in the division. They have everything working for them, from current group placing, match history to current form. They will take the series, they must. So I advise you to go higher unit bet on Hellbear Smashers ML, which means they need to win the series, no matter the results, 2-0 or 2-1. Odds are lower, but with bigger stakes it should be a decent bet.
