Pinnacle Cup: Hellbear Smashers vs HellRaisers

Over 2.5 @ 1.92

Pinnacle Cup is on the half of it’s way and Tuesday playday will start with a real hell. Hellbear Smashers are facing HellRaisers for the first time. Both teams have 3 wins and 2 losses in the Pinnacle Cup right now, but I would say that this could be a pretty even match and it’s really hard to predict a winner here. Maybe a slight advantage goes to Smashers, since HellRaisers disappointed yesterday with their 0-2 loss vs Team Empire. Over 2.5 is a pretty good bet here.

Pinnacle Cup: Level UP vs EXTREMUM

EXTREMUM @ 2.03

What odds on EXTREMUM we have here, just amazing. Their only series they’ve played in January went to EXTREMUM favour, 2-0. Level UP’s last match was a win over Chicken Fighters, while EXTREMUM has just only 1 win in their last 5 matches. But let’s be realistic here - they played all CIS finest teams, from Spirit, VirtusPro to Gambit. Of course they are not their level yet. But they took down PuckChamp and took a map off Gambit, which is pretty big. EXTREMUM has a solid lineup and if they will get lucky with drafts, they can beat a mix like Level UP.

DreamLeague EU Upper Division: Team Secret vs Brame

Team Secret -1.5 @ 1.63

I just can’t go with Brame here. Brame are 3-2 in their last 5 matches overall, they beat Chicken Fighters, HellRaisers and Hellbear Smashers, but this is another level of Dota now that they need to play in order to be a threat to Secret. On the other hand, Secret is not on their top level. They are losing maps all the way and they have a terrible 3-3 score in the EU DPC upper division. However, even if their form is not as we used to watch them, this is their last train to secure top 4 positions, since OG and Brame are sharing Secrets win-loss ratio too. Very risky bet and match, but Secret must wake up here.

DreamLeague EU Upper Division: Nigma vs Tundra

Nigma @ 1.35

Nigma with iLTW is playing pretty well. Even though odds are not that big on their possible victory today, I do think they will outplay Tundra for sure. Tundra is holding 7th place with just 2 wins in 6 matches, and Nigma is fighting for top 2 finish and placement. There is a big difference here. If you want to take a higher risk here, -1.5 Nigma would be an interesting bet, but if you want to play safe Nigma ML with 1.30 - 1.40 odds is a decent 5 unit or higher bet.
