Dota 2 Pro Circuit Week 3 Upper Divisions Tips and Winning Bets
The Dota 2 Pro Circuit is gaining speed and the favorites have confirmed their status in all four main regions. So far they’ve played against weaker opponents, but now the derbies are inevitable and Week 3 brings some exceptional games. These are some of the most ambitious predictions and betting tips for upcoming matches scheduled for the first week of February.
Team Secret and Team Nigma Fight for EU Supremacy
Only two teams stand undefeated in the European upper division but this situation will change next week. That’s because Team Secret and Team Nigma are scheduled to play on February 3, in what is the most anticipated match of this phase of the tournament. Team Secret are favorites with odds of 1.45 and that’s mainly because of the head to head record and the fact that they lost a single match. We like the odds of 2.60 offered by GG.bet on Team Nigma to cause an upset, or at least take one match in the series.
Team Secret is in for a busy week as it will play another exciting match three days later against Team Liquid. They went down at the end of a highly contested series against Team Nigma and are desperate for a victory to return to the first place. Team Secret are once again the favorites with odds of 1.55, and on this occasion, we side again with the underdogs at odds of 2.35.
Vici Gaming Put their Invincibility on the Line this Week
Vici Gaming are tied with Team Aster and Invictus for the first place with two victories and just as many matches. They are likely to claim solitary lead this week, as they play against both Invictus and EHOME on February 2 and February 5. They are favorites in both games and this is still enough GG.Bet offers identical odds of 1.30 on Vici to prevail. Risk-averse punters should stick to the favorites but refrain from betting on 2-0 wins, while those who fancy upsets should consider the odds of 3.20 on the underdogs.
NaVi and Virtus.pro Set To Extend Winning Streak in the CIS
The CIS top division was unlikely to produce any surprises this year, as NaVi and Virtus.pro dominate these regions with an iron fist. They are tied for the lead and are unlikely to give away this position at least at the end of this week. That’s because they take on teams that are well below their quality, hence the combined odds of 2.00 on straight wins. Both would have to sweep opponents for punters who bet on this outcome double the investment, but this is what to expect to happen this week in the CIS.
Evil Geniuses Test Undying at the Top of NA Upper Division
There is one game that stands out from the crowd in the North American upper-division and that’s the one between Evil Geniuses and Undying. These are currently the only undefeated teams, but Undying’s exceptional run is likely to come to an end. On February 7, in the final match of this Dota 2 Pro Circuit Week 3 Evil Geniuses start with the first chance and odds of 1.20. If Undying manage to extend their invincible run, those who bet on their victory will be paid at 4.00, but this is an unlikely outcome.
