Today, we are following Chinese Dota 2 scene and tournaments
China is the only region where Dota Pro Circuit 2021 Season 1 hasn’t ended. Together with that, we will follow one series from the FDC Season 3 tournament. Here are Friday’s picks and predictions.
Sparking Arrow Gaming -1.5 @ 1.57
SAG are fighting vs most probably one of the weakest teams in the Chinese lower division. With 1 win and 4 losses Xtreme are holding 7th place out of 8 in total. They have only 4 maps won out of 13 played. On the other side, SAG are really focusing on this tournament and with 4 wins out of 5 matches they are holding their top position. They need this win desperately to be able to fight for the top 2 spots that lead to the upper division next season. SAG has everything it takes to be able to beat Xtreme Gaming, it’s just the question if it will be 2-1 or 2-0. I give higher chances to 2-0, so handicap -1.5 is a good pick here.
Vici Gaming @ 1.22
At the moment, Vici Gaming are one of the strongest teams in China. Those two teams didn’t face each other yet this year, but this should be a one way street for CDEC. Yes, CDEC has a new lineup and they are rising in form, but that’s still not enough. In the last 5 matches they have solid 3 wins and 2 losses. Current situation in the league’s group A shows that Vici is leading the pack with 1 win and CDEC is knocked out to bottom with 2 straight losses and 0 maps won. Vici are a straight favourite here and odds are decent for a bigger ML bet here.
Team Aster -1.5 @ 1.52
Another high risk handicap bet, but that’s the only logical choice here. Competition is so hard in the upper division of Chinese DPC, it’s crazy. Aster will need to step up their game to be able to finish in the desired 1st or 2nd place. Yes, they are 3rd right now with 4-1, but Invictus Gaming has almost cemented their 1st position with 6 straight wins in the groups. Magma is at the bottom with 1-4 and they are in big danger being relegated to the lower division for the next season. Quality between those two teams is very big, and Aster should take this series with 2-0. They need one clean victory here. Aster had some amazing recent matches vs CDEC, LBZS, EHOME and Elephant. They won them all. Pretty impressive from them.
