First day this week and we are opening with some Pinnacle Cup matches and lower division of the EU DPC season.
Level Up @ 1.86
This is a 50-50 series and it’s a hard one. On a first glance it seems like any of those teams can take up a win here, but I’m slightly favouring Level Up, just because of their last matches. Their last matches were vs Brame and Team Spirit, and in both matches they were looking solid, taking both squads to 3 maps. On the other side PuckChamp is on a big downfall, 4 matches without a win in a row, and this will be a really hard one. If this match was like a month ago or so, I would pick PuckChamp but right now other squad have a slight advantage. Over 2.5 maps is a good bet here too. Really close one.
HellRaisers @ 1.73
Brame is a really solid squad, but I must admit that HellRaisers are on fire lately, and I must give them a chance. 5 straight wins in a row brought them here to be slight favourites in this series. At least we have good, competitive odds on both sides. Biggest win for HR was their 2-0 series against Vikin.gg 5 days ago, and that showed that they are building their lineup and chemistry in a good direction. Does that mean that Resolution finally started to play? It’s yet to be seen, but they are looking solid. On the other side, from taking a map of Liquid and Nigma, Brame came to lose to EXTREMUM, so I believe they are in a really delicate state. Over 2.5 maps could happen here too.
B8 @ 1.48
This should be a really interesting match where I don’t see a reason for such high odds on B8. B8 are the favourites here, they have better players almost on all positions, but of course with tier 2 CIS Dota we don’t know what can happen. F5 are on the 2 match winning streak, while B8 was struggling to beat Team Empire in their last series. +1.5 handicap of F5 could be an interesting bet here too, depending on the odds available.
Hellbear Smashers @ 1.95
I do think this is a real value bet. On most sportsbooks, Chicken Fighters are slight favourites, but I do believe this is way open series then it seems. 45-55 for me, and In this case, I do believe Hellbear Smashers can do it. Both squads are kinda unstable, but overall in the last month or so Hellbear Smashers showed way better series and results in the end. Those two teams already played each other at the beginning of the year when Chicken Fighters took the series with a 2-0. I think Hellbear Smashers can do it on the wings from their wins over Spirit and Puckchamp.
