this game is the lower bracket finals of MDL Changsha Dota 2 major tournament. The game is played on Sunday, 20th May, 7AM CET.
As I mentioned in my previous articles, I think betting on underdogs can be very beneficial in Dota 2 tournaments, mainly in Playoffs. The gap between the top teams is almost non-existing, and most teams can and will beat each other. When I take some stats and numbers into consideration, most of the matchups between the top teams is 50/50, so this is another reason why betting on underdog is my kind of betting, when it comes to Dota 2.
We have PSG.LGD, the favorites, coming into the lower bracket finals. On their route to the finals they beat IG Vitality, TNC Pro Team, Team Secret and Newbee. Now, I don’t want to underestimate PSG.LGD I think they are one of the best teams currently (they won Epicenter XL after all), but the matchups they faced weren’t that hard… IG Vitality hasn’t been seen at any tournaments outside China recently, because they were not able to qualify. TNC Pro Team is known for being a strong team in SEA region, but they are not even the best team from SEA and they often have some questionable plays and people generally see the “SEA gameplay” when they play – they get too excited, they throw games, no discipline, etc. Then we have Team Secret and Newbee, strong teams on paper, but they are out of form for the past few months already and the bookies are waking up and realizing it just now (I already made some bets against Secret in previous tournaments and I think I won all of them).
They will face Vici Gaming – a strong, experienced team, that has already beaten them in the group stages convincingly 2-0. Yes, they lost to VGJ Storm in the upper bracket finals, but when two Chinese teams play against each other, it is a different story. Chinese teams has often very similar gameplay and the games between them can be very close.
PSG.LGD are 35-14 in the past 30 days, with a team KDA 3.60.
Vici Gaming are 19-5 in the past 30 days, with a team KDA 4.06.
