DOTA 2 Daily Betting Tips – Thursday
The most interesting matches of the day are upper bracket round 1 matches in OMEGA League European Immortal Division. Three strongest European teams + Evil Geniuses are fighting for the place in the upper bracket finals. Here is a short analysis and my picks for upcoming matches.
MATCH: Team Nigma vs OG
Date: Thursday, September 3rd @ 17:00 CEST
Nigma and OG will face each other in the upper bracket of the OMEGA League: Europe Immortal Division. Nigma was extremely strong in the group stage and topped Group A with a 4-1 score. The team has not had the best results in the past few months, but its players look to be in excellent form at the OMEGA League: Europe Immortal Division. OG recently brought back Ceb to its active roster and the improvement in player synergy is easily visible in this tournament.
NoTail and company are back to its aggressive early game performance and so far, they have been very strong. OG finished the group stage with a 3-2 score. OG lost to Team Liquid and Secret. However, OG has been dominant in its victories over FTM and NiP. Nigma are slight favourites here and I do think they will take this match. OG has returned to form, but Nigma’s strength lies in its players’ synergy. They seem to have an excellent understanding of the current meta together with their coach playing as standin on position 5.
PICK: Team Nigma ML, 1.55 @ BetOnBit
MATCH: Team Secret vs Evil Geniuses
Date: Thursday, September 3rd @ 20:00 CEST
One of the most entertaining matches in Dota 2 will take place between these two teams that have a very high level. Team Secret is one of the best Dota 2 teams out there right now, but their history vs Evil Geniuses is not bright. They were losing to them very often, while their last match they played almost 7 months ago went to all 5 maps. However, both teams have slightly different squads today. Team Secret is the most dominant team in this tournament so far with 5 straight wins and only 1 map lost out of 11. On the other side Evil Geniuses were struggling in the other group by losing to NaVi and VirtusPro. Seems like CIS teams are not suiting them.
Even though EG is playing with a standing gpk on position 2, they are playing surprisingly well. I think they are capable of giving Team Secret a hard time in this match. However, Team Secret is currently few levels above and I do believe that they can drop a map only if EG has a very good day or drafts. Team Secret ML is a very safe bet, lower odds, but higher bet on that will do the work. I wouldn’t risk handicaps here, even though -1.5 handicap on Team Secret is more possible here then +1.5 on Evil Geniuses. Good luck!
PICK: Team Secret ML, 1.15 @ BetOnBit
