Dota 2 Pro Circuit Upper Divisions Predictions and Winning Bets
The second week of the Dota 2 Pro Circuit is underway, with exciting matches scheduled in the upper divisions. Our DPC predictions focus on the four more main regions, which enjoy ample coverage at leading bookmakers, such as GG.Bet. European, Chinese, North American and CIS super teams play from Tuesday to Sunday, again some of the most ambitious and talented challengers of 2021.
OG Poised to Take Over the European Upper Division This Week
OG are the main favorites to win the Dota 2 Pro Circuit European upper division, one of the most competitive regions in 2021. A single team managed to win by 2-0 and even OG dropped a game against the High Coast Esports. On January 26 and January 30 they take on Mudgolems and Alliance and this time they’ll be aiming for 2-0 victories. Both lost the opening matches, but the latter are expected to put up quite a fight, hence the odds of 2.50 on OG to defeat them in straight games. Risk-averse punters can consider an accumulator bet on the favorites to defeat both Mudgolems and Alliance at odds of 1.75.
EHOME and Invictus Fight for 1st Place in the Chinese Upper Division
The DPC Chinese Upper Division favorites were able to kick start the season with hard-fought victories and try to extend the winning streak. PSG.LGD were the only ones to fail in the opening day and they are in prime position to recuperate the points against MagMa. The match of the week will be played on the last day of January, when EHOME and Invictus Gaming are scheduled to lock horns. These are two of the top contenders in the region and head to head matches were always close in 2020. EHOME has a slight advantage in the series, winning the last three games, but we like Invictus to win this time at odds of 2.70.
Team Spirit Stays within Striking Distance of CIS Upper Division Leaders
The CIS region has so far met expectations and it is the most lopsided upper division of the entire Dota 2 Pro Circuit. Favorites have won all the games played so far and they managed to prevail without dropping a single match in the series. We expect their good form to continue this week and our DPC predictions are centered on Team Spirit. They play against No Techies and Team Empire, squads that we expect to be swept by the in-form favorites. GG.Bet offers odds of 1.50 on a 2-0 victory over Team Empire and 2.00 on Team Spirit to sweep No Techies on Sunday. Bold punters can also consider an ACCA at odds of 3.00
Take a Chance with 4 Zoomers in the North America Upper Division
Quincy Crew are among the favorites to win the DPC North American division and the main challengers to Evil Geniuses. Not surprisingly, they are credited with the first chance and odds of only 1.35 to defeat 4 Zoomers in the match scheduled for late January 31. We love the GG.Bet odds of 3.00 on the underdogs to cause an upset, especially after seeing their performance in the opening match. They were able to tie the series and win the second match against Evil Geniuses at the end of a 62 minute brawl. The ability to withstand late game pressure against the best NA team makes them worth trusting against Quincy Crew.
