OMEGA League Divine Division’s group stage is coming to an end. We still have 4 matches remaining in the EU region. Situation is getting pretty chaotic, as for now only 1 team is secure for the playoffs. Here is a short breakdown and our predictions for Wednesday matches for the EU region.
Team Empire @ 1.15
Team Empire is far away from the strong tier 2 CIS squad from the beggining of the season. I’m not sure what happened to them, but the last month or so they are struggling a lot. Sad, because their squad was a promising one. Their performance for now in group B was very disappointing. 2 losses and 1 win are still holding them in the game. Strangely enough, they’ve lost their matches vs Cyberium Seed and HellRaisers, but they’ve won their last match vs Unique, the strongest team in the group. On the other hand, 5Comrades are just not the team to be holding strong in such tournaments. They are the weakest team there, and they are already eliminated from the group with 4 losses and 0-8 in maps. Team Empire is a massive favourite here, and I think 2-0 is very possible here. If you don’t want to risk betting on handicap, go for Empire ML, if you find decent odds.
Over 2.5 @ 1.89
Both teams are heavily in the battle for top 3 positions that lead to the playoffs. These two teams are currently ranked as 2nd and 3rd teams in the group. While Omegalil has a bigger advantage because they have 3 wins and only 1 loss, Extremum are sitting on the edge of the seat. With 2 wins and 2 losses, they are on the edge of being eliminated if they lose this match. On paper, I love the Extremum lineup a little bit more. More experienced players, bigger names, but they are not showing that dominance in the games. Both teams have a 0-2 loss vs Cyber Legacy as their last match. I do think that Omegalil has a small advantage here, since they showed a little bit more in the group stage, but this can be a very close match. I see a big value here in Over 2.5 bet. I think there is a big possibility that we see all 3 maps.
HellRaisers @ 1.17
B8 just can’t catch a break. They are mixing rosters, trying various players, but their concept and approach just doesn’t work. They are one of the weakest profesional Dota 2 squads in Europe this year, and they’ve broken all records in number of lost matches in a row. Theoretically, B8 with a 1 win out of 3 matches, still has a chance to qualify for the playoffs. If they win the next 2 matches. However, I think their first step is impossible to cross. HellRaisers are just too strong for them, and they should easily take this win here. With only 1 map here, HellRaisers should be safe for the playoffs, but I do think they are here to win. This could be very easily 2-0 for HR and with that they should overtake 1st place in the group from Unique.
