OGA Dota Pit entered it’s 3rd season in China. With a $90,000 prize pool, surely it’s the hottest Chinese Dota 2 league currently. Group stage just ended, and Thursday is the day for Upper Bracket Round 2 matches. Let’s analyze them.
PSG.LGD @ 1.36
PSG.LGD crushed their group stage matches. They’ve finished 1st in group A with 3 wins out of 3 matches. 6-2 in maps. They dropped a map to Vici and RNG. The same Vici team that they are facing now. PSG.LGD is on a 7 match winning streak in all competitions. Their last 3 matches vs Vici went in their favour too. Two times 2-0, and one time 2-1. Really impressive performance and statistics vs Vici Gaming. After losing 3 in a row, Vici finally stabilized with 2 wins in a row. They’ve managed to take down SAG and RNG to finish 2nd in their group, right behind PSG.LGD. Their 2-9 win vs Magma in the upper bracket round 1 brought them here, in a rematch vs PSG.LGD. I think PSG.LGD are massive favourites here to take down this series. I just wonder if Vici will play well enough to be able to be a threat or to be able to take a map of LGD. Going for a PSG.LGD win here is the safest bet. Try to look for the 1.35 odds or higher, and you should have a nice bet.
Team Aster @ 1.84
We have another group stage rematch here. Team Aster did even better than PSG.LGD in the group stage. Their group B was really competitive. So competitive that strong Invictus Gaming ended in last place with 3 losses. Team Aster took that 1st place with 3 straight wins. 6 maps won, 1 lost vs EHOME. EHOME finished in 2nd place in the group B by losing only to Team Aster by a close 1-2 result. Both teams made some roster reshuffles lately, and we are watching two different teams now compared to a month or two ago. This will be a very close match, Aster are slight favourites, but EHOME can surprise here too. I would say it’s 60-40 in favour of Team Aster. Odds are showing that too. An interesting comparison - in the last 12 days, these two teams played two times. First time EHOME won with 2-1, second - most recent matches they’ve played Aster won with 2-1. That’s showing us how close those two teams are. On my edge, slight advantage goes to Team Aster. 3 maps highly possible here.
