Yesterday was a really weird day at D2CL Season 3. All favourites lost their games as nothing went according to their plan. Today is a new day, and here are my picks for today’s matches.
PuckChamp -1.5 @ 1.85
High risk match to bet on. PuckChamp are heavy favourites in this series, but when looking at their performance yesterday, we must be careful. They have lost their match and points to Khan (0-2), and with one of the worst performances so far in this tournament they showed they are not stable at all. Galactic Aliens showed that they know how to take maps off teams like Nemiga, B8 and Winstrike. PuckChamp is not a team that is much higher ranked than those 3. The safest bet here would be a PuckChamp ML, if the odds are satisfying for you. If not, -1.5 handicap is a good way to go.
B8 @ 1.51
I’m actually surprised how good odds are on B8 win. Nemiga are the worst team in the competition so far. With 7 straight losses, they are holding last place currently in the group stage. B8 has 3 wins out of 5 matches, and they actually showed some good games and had some good performances. One interesting fact is that B8 never beat Nemiga this year. However, I do believe this can change today as B8 are in a quite sharper shape compared to Nemiga. If Nemiga loses this, this can mark the end of them in this competition.
Creepwave @ 2.13
Yes, V Gaming are favourites in this series. Yes, V Gaming are favourites in this tournament. Yes, V Gaming are title contenders and they are defending their Season 2 title. However, so far, Creepwave has shown much better performance. With Crystallis on position 1, they still don’t know for a loss. 6 straight wins in a row for them, while V Gaming has a 4-2 score. Losing to teams like B8 or PuckChamp was not a wind in their backs. I’ve decided here to go with underdogs, Creepwave. Odds are amazing, as you can double your bet easily. Creepwave are still unbeaten and they have shown the best Dota so far, out of all teams. Worth going for.
