OGA Dota PIT 2020 Online: China is featuring eight of the best Chinese Dota 2 teams as they compete for the $60,000 prize pool. Let’s analyze two upcoming upper bracket round 2 matches between the top 4 Chinese teams.
Royal Never Give Up @ 2.02
In the last month or so, those two teams have played 3 times. RNG won 2 times and PSG.LGD won 1 time. The most recent was PSG.LGD’s win with a 2-1 result. Both teams were placed in group A of this tournament. PSG.LGD won that group with 3 wins and 0 losses, while RNG was placed 2nd with 2 wins and 1 loss vs group leaders PSG.LGD. However, that match was very close and it went deep into all 3 maps. Basically, I can say that this is a fight between two best Chinese Dota 2 teams currently. It will be very interesting, and I do believe there is a nice value in betting on RNG. Lately, Chinese leagues and matches are so uneven and impossible to predict. Basically anyone from the top tier list teams, can beat everyone. Nice odds on RNG, and I do believe they can take this match.
Team Aster @ 2.15
Aster is one of those teams that can beat anybody in the Chinese Dota 2 scene, but lose to anybody too. Really weird squad to watch. Aster was the 3rd place team from group A with 1 win and 2 losses. They have won vs Keen Gaming, but lost to PSG.LGD and RNG. Now they need to face Vici Gaming, the 1st ranked team from group B, who won 2 matches in their group, but lost one. They have beat CDEC and Invictus Gaming, but lost to EHOME. Why did I decide to go for Aster? Because just one day ago Aster beat Vici Gaming with 2-1 in their DPL-CDA Professional League Season 1 match. And I think they can do it again, they showed that already. Odds on Aster are high, they are surely not favourites, especially after their showing in the group stage of this tournament. But as they’ve beat Vici 1 day ago, they can repeat that too or at least provide close games. We will see. High potential match, but high risk too.
