The last 2 days of the OMEGA League Immortal EU division approach. Only 6 more matches remaining and only Team Secret has secured their playoff spot for now. It will be interesting to see the development of those group stages this weekend. Here are my picks for Friday matches.
Alliance @ 1.38
Natus Vincere and Alliance is considered to be one of the modern-day El Clasicos of Dota 2. Although the current rosters have nothing to do with the ones from a few years ago, it’s always fun to watch these two teams going against each other. As much as I like NaVi, I think that Alliance is just a lot better compared to their enemies, which should mean that they will win. Even though Alliance is holding the last place in their group A with 1 wins and 3 losses, NaVi has 1 match more to play. They are just one place above them in rankings with 1 win and 2 losses. At this point, Alliance is a better team, even if they are not looking good in this tournament. With NikoBaby carrying them, they shouldn’t have bigger problems beating NaVi.
Over 2.5 @ 1.89
Team Liquid and FlyToMoon are two teams that are in a similar position right now. Generally speaking, Team Liquid is the better team, however, their most recent performance is just dreadful. This should be a very close match, and I have a feeling that we can see all 3 maps here. Liquid are slight favourites because of their history in previous tournaments, but in this one - they are looking very bad. 1-3, with 2 maps won out of 8. Terrible numbers. FlyToMoon has a win over NiP and a map won vs Vikin.gg. It’s hard to predict the match winner here, that’s why I’m going with an Over 2.5 bet.
OG +1.5 @ 1.66
This is the clash that everyone is waiting to see. Team Secret and OG are two of the best teams in Europe right now, maybe in the world too, which is why this series is really hard to predict. Even though the two time TI champions are in good form, Team Secret has won everything in the last couple of months, so we will choose them over their opponents. Secret are big favourites in this match, simply because of their current form and strength. They are the best Dota 2 out there currently. What could go in bettors favour is that they’ve already secured their playoff spot and top 2 positions in group B. They can play for seeding now. However, with Topson and Ceb back, OG is slowly getting their old shade back. They have a decent chance here I would say, and handicap OG bet here is the smartest way to go, with a decent odds of course.
