Singapore Major 2021 Odds Analysis
Secret (+120): A Dota 2 team out of Europe and won the 2020 Esports Team of the Year. Originally founded in 2014, Secret has a habit of winning major tournaments. They have won several Tier-1 tournaments in the past year alone. They placed 3rd in the 2019-20 Dota pro circuit season. Look for Secret to continue their dominance in 2021.
Virtus.pro (+350): A Russian team best known for their Counter Strike and Dota 2 teams. An eSports conglomerate that can attract the best eSports players across a spectrum of games. Virtus.pro been mainly playing smaller tournaments and haven’t played a Tier 1 match since 2018. Even so, they should be ready to challenge the best teams in the Singapore major.
Invictus Gaming (+600): A Chinese eSports conglomerate that excels at several different games. Throughout 2020 Invictus Gaming played over a dozen regional tournaments, but with only limited success. Invictus placed 5th in the 2019-20 Dota pro circuit season. They should be well-practiced in competitive Dota 2, look for Invictus to battle through the tournament.
Evil Geniuses (+800): A North American organization that has been competing in eSports since 1999. Evil Geniuses has dozens of tournament wins under their belt and have competed since the dawn of Dota 2. They placed 4th in the Dota 2019-20 pro circuit season. Still, Evil Geniuses haven’t won a Tier 1 tournament since 2017. Look for EG to break their drought and take home the gold.
Aster (+1000): This is the highest favored team starting in the Group Stage. Aster formed in 2018 and has yet to find the consistency of some of the better teams. Still, the odds seem to favor this team. Aster has yet to win a Tier 1 tournament and has mixed results in Tier 2 tournaments. Still, they earned a spot in the Group Stage among some of the best teams. They placed 10th in the 2019-20 Dota pro circuit season. Aster is a risky gamble and there could be better payouts in the field.
