Dota 2 Champions League 2021 S2 Betting Analysis and Odds
Dota 2 Champions League 2021 S2 shines the spotlight on the competitive European scene. Fans were looking forward to familiar teams to dominate the competition, yet it’s been chiefly underwhelming. With the past week’s worth of matches, there are definitely some key takeaways we can determine for the upcoming games.
There are six matches scheduled for the next two days, four of which are solid choices for Dota 2 betting. Let’s dig right into it.
AS Monaco Gambit vs V-Gaming
Gambit’s season has been an absolute rollercoaster, to say the least. They were consistent enough to debut in majors but ended up having their players poached prior to the WePlay AniMajor. As the team loses sight of the International 10, the current Gambit line-up feels nothing more than an empty husk. They currently play with two stand-ins, namely, Igor “iLTW” Filatov and Sergei “G” Bragin.
Putting Gambit’s unfortunate season aside, their match against V-Gaming might actually be an upset. For context, Gambit is already on a disappointing losing streak, while their upcoming opponent, V-Gaming, may be a new candidate in town, they have performed consistently.
Despite the sheer difference in the two teams’ reputation, both share relatively similar odds of winning. Gambit at x1.84 while V-Gaming is at x1.92 returns. At this stage its more logical to go for V-Gaming as a selection in this match.
PuckChamp vs Spider Pigzs
PuckChamp’s rise to fame as a phenomenal CIS team has made them a must-watch at the Dota 2 Champions League 2021 S2. For a team with no past background before the Dota Pro Circuit 2021 (DPC 2021), PuckChamp is here to compete with the big boys.
They are up against Gleb “Funn1k” Lipatnikov’s team, Spider Pigzs. PuckChamp’s strong showing in the past week was anticipated for the most part, so it’s a no-brainer to favor them in this match. In terms of the numbers, PuckChamp is expected to win at x1.38 odds versus Spider Pigzs at x2.94
A simple outright on PuckChamp would suffice. If you want to get the most out of this match, my correct score prediction would be 2:1 in favor of PuckChamp earning you x3.15 in return.
Team Winstrike vs Hellbear Smashers
Hellbear Smashers recent success at Dota 2 Champions League 2021 S2 was a breath of fresh air. Unsurprisingly, the squad is led by seasoned veterans, such as Marcus “Ace” Hoelgaard, Viktor “GeneRaL” Nigrini and Daniel “Stormstormer” Schoetzau.
On the contrary, Winstrike has a line-up that nobody really knew about but shared decent success in the last DPC 2021. Nevertheless, we can’t overlook Hellbear Smashers’ five-winning streak, which will most likely grow further.
Dota 2 odds-wise, Hellbear Smashers has an x1.24 odds versus Winstrike’s x3.87. Regardless, an upset isn’t impossible, considering Winstrike has had decent success in the DPC 2021, which Hellbear Smashers did not. I would once again propose going for a 1:2 scoreline in favor of Hellbear Smashers at x3.27 in return.
PuckChamp vs Fantastic Five
Lastly, it’s another match for PuckChamp, this time versus Fantastic Five. Fantastic Five is by no means a strong opponent, so PuckChamp probably wouldn’t consider them as a threat. However, it’s crucial to note that Fantastic Five did land third-place in the Lower Division league of DPC 2021 Season 2.
They are certainly a solid candidate to rise up into the Upper Division, perhaps in the next DPC season after TI10. Until then, a brawl with PuckChamp will be good experience for the young team. Anyways, the odds certainly favor PuckChamp at x1.19 while Fantastic Five is at x3.52 returns. As we are largely going for correct results today, 2:0 for PuckChamp (x1.75) is the best course of action.
In the end, we are looking at x36.59 in return for a four way accumulator. This would mean simply betting 10$ would earn you a whopping ~$365. The odds in our selection are courtsey of GG.BET. There will have another set of matches later on in the event, so we are looking forward to thrilling comebacks.
