New week, new Dota 2 challenges. This week we will follow most of the regions as we have some really interesting up and coming matches.
Today, SEA, South American and European regions are the most crowded ones. Here are my picks and predictions for Monday matches.
Over 2.5 @ 1.93
Both teams are pretty equal on the paper. The current situation in SEA lower division shows that. As both teams are ranked at the bottom of the table, they are fighting for their lives here. HOYO is in 6th place with 1 win and 2 losses, and Galaxy Racer is in 7th place with a 1 win and 3 losses. Much riskier match for Racers, as if they lose this they will be in a really hard situation. Galaxy Racers are slight favourites here, but I do think this is a high potential 3 map series. Otherwise, 60-40 in favour of Galaxy Racers.
HellRaisers @ 1.32
CIS lower division is so competitive. With teams like HellRaisers, Gambit, Winstrike and others the division is looking really interesting. That being said, this match is a derby of the CIS lower division for sure. One of the best organizations in there battling it out. Even though Winstrike is holding 1st place, HellRaisers are a really big threat to them. They have 3 wins and a 6-3 in maps. Really nice stats. On the other side, Gambit is disappointing us, at least in those first rounds. Only 1 win out of 3 matches brought them to 4th place. They need this win so much. But I don’t think they can do it, HellRaisers is just better in all fields. HR should outclass them pretty easily. This should be a pretty big win for them, so they can keep up the pace with Winstrike who are holding 1st place with a 4-0 score right now.
Spider Pigz @ 1.56
This could be a nice match. Both teams are run by Greeks, ex teammates. ThuG from Spider Pigz will fight out vs Focus, Skylark and Spartan from Brame squad, and this should be a really interesting clash between those players. They know each other, they know their opponents playstyle and this match is very open. However, due to their recent results and plays, Spider Pigz are favourites here. They are on a 4 match winning streak in all competitions and in their last 3 matches, Spider Pigz won them 2 out of 3. I think this will be the hardest match for Spider Pigz in this league until now and they will need to do everything they can to pull out a win. 70-30 for them if you ask me, but 3 maps could happen.
0-900 @ 1.54
The South American region is always interesting. It’s teams are always providing us with amazing matches. Matches where any team can win, as they are all on pretty much equal level, at least those teams on the top. Even though this is lower division, some teams are standing out more than others. 0-900 is one of them. I think this is a real deal and a real opportunity. Odds on a 0-900 win are amazing, even though I think they should be much lower. 0-900 is a squad with 4 straight wins in this league and with 8-3 in maps. Compared to Infinity Esports that have only 2 wins out of 3 matches. 0-900 are in excellent form and they gathered a decent group of players in one team. My money is on them, as odds have big value and the team has a 80% chance of winning this match.
