European and CIS Dota is moving on. New week, new interesting matches in Pinnacle Cup and EU/CIS DPC divisions.
Brame @ 1.87
Even though odds are quite equal on both teams, I feel like Brame has a huge advantage. Chicken Fighters just changed their position 3 player. Chessie left the team and ATF joined instead of him. That came at a very bad moment for them, as I do think their performance will slightly fall right now and Brame is in excellent form for their level. Yes, Brame lost the last 2 matches against strong squads, but Chicken Fighters lost their series against Level UP. Plus a lineup change, and Brame will have a big opportunity here. Amazing odds.
Team Spirit -1.5 @ 1.69
This could easily go in 2 ways. Either Team Spirit will take the series with 2-0 or Unique will be able to take a map off them. It’s very hard to predict that right now. Unique are on a rise and they are definitely able to surprise Spirit even if the difference between teams is very big. But this is CIS Dota so everything is possible. In their last 2 clashes this year, Spirit took wins in both series with 2-0. Higher chances are that this result will happen today too.
HellRaisers -1.5 @ 1.72
I don’t see a way here how the Empire can beat HellRaisers. HellRaisers has more quality, more individual strength, better teamplay and better players overall. The Empire can surprise them with a map, but I do think HellRaisers are slightly rising their form in this DPC Season 2. This will be their first clash this year and HellRaisers are coming into this match with 2 victories behind them. On the other side, Empire are struggling to beat their own level teams like B8 or Nemiga. Odds on HR handicap are good, worth trying for.
Vikin.gg -1.5 @ 1.72
Vikin.gg are a better team for sure. They never lost to PuckChamp this year, not even a single map. PuckChamp’s last match was a 0-2 vs HellRaisers, while Vikin.gg lost 0-2 to Team Spirit. Even though Vikin.gg are not on their top level that they used to be before Khezu joined them, I do think they have the power to beat PuckChamp 2-0. Their win is almost a certainty I would say, but odds are really small, not worth trying for. Vikin.gg must win this if they don’t wanna lose their 1st place in the rankings.
Ghost Frogs -1.5 @ 1.44
Ghost Frogs are the 3rd ranked team in the division. With 3 wins and 3 losses they are holding their ground. On the other hand, Hippomaniacs are the weakest team here and they are already eliminated from the competition as they firmly hold last place. With 6 straight losses and only 1 map win out of 13, they don’t look good in this series either. This should be easy for Ghost Frogs.
