[DOTA 2] After almost 3 days off, ESL One Germany 2020 continues. The upper bracket round 2 is scheduled for Wednesday. We will watch 2 matches with top European teams. The best 4 teams for now in this competition will fight for the upper bracket finals. Let’s analyze the matches and predict the winners.

Secret - Mudgolems: Secret -1.5, 1.33 @ MY BETSLIP

Team Secret and Mudgolems will open round 2 of the upper bracket. Team Secret is definitely the best European Dota 2 team by a mile, at least at the moment. It’s interesting to mention that Team Secret are the only squad in this competition that didn’t drop a single map in the group stage. Three 2-0 results for the easy spot in the playoffs. There, they faced Team Nigma in round 1. They won that match 2-1, but Nigma managed to take a map off Secret, and that surprised us all. Nigma is surely one of the strongest EU teams, but they are not showing it currently. And they are the first team to drop out of the playoffs. If Nigma took a map off Secret, I wonder if Mudgolems can too. Let me remind you that Mudgolems crushed Team Nigma with a clean 2-0 in the group stage. They are surely one of the hottest young stacks in Europe, the real underdogs of the tournament. And I can’t say anything against them. They are delivering it, as their performance is constantly shocking and surprising their opponents. In the playoffs round 1, they managed to take down Team Liquid with 2-1. Really impressive performance and win for them. However, I don’t think that Mudgolems are ready for Team Secret. Secret is just a few levels above every other team. Too experienced, with the best captain in the world, they are surely a mountain to climb for Mudgolems. Even if it’s a very risky bet, I do think Team Secret can take this match 2-0 easily. It can happen that Mudgolems can shine and take a map off, but I think there is a lesser chance for that compared to Secret -1.5 handicap.

Natus Vincere - ViKin.gg: Natus Vincere, 1.60 @ MY BETSLIP

This can potentially be a much more interesting match then the first one. CIS vs EU is always an interesting battle. Even though NaVi is favoured here, I do think this match can potentially be really close. In the end I would still favour NaVi. Let me explain why. Both NaVi and Vikin.gg ended up their group stage run with 3 wins and 2 losses. They’ve barely qualified for the playoffs in their 5th, deciding group stage match. NaVi had a pretty easy way to qualify for the playoffs. Basically, they’ve beat 3 weak CIS squads. While Vikin.gg managed to take down NiP with 2-1 in their decider match. That was their strongest win in the group. Basically, neither of the teams impressed me with their play. However, in the playoffs both teams stepped up their play. NaVi managed to take down OG 2-1, while Vikin.gg surprisingly managed to take down Alliance with a clean 2-0. And now, here we are. I would say those teams have a lot of similarities, but let’s focus on staff that differ them from each other. NaVi is more focused on individual strength with carries like V-Tune, Iceberg and General. Their individual strength and quality is not questionable. On the other side, I would say that Vikin.gg’s players have less individual quality, but they have better team play and awareness. For that reason, they are doing amazingly good. However, Dota 2 is currently in a stage where individual quality often makes big differences. Of course paired with good draft and hero picks. If top NaVi’s players get good hero picks and drafts, for example V-Tune and his Morph, I do think that Vikin.gg will have a lot of problems with that and they will eventually fall. For that reason, I fancy going to NaVi ML here. If you are not into ML play, try going Over 2.5 maps. Three maps are highly anticipated here.

betting on esports is much harder

Its harder always to pick the winner due to the larger amount of upsets in the era of online games.   I lament the loss of LANS as they were most reliable matches or series of matches to bet on.  So the volatility of results is up but the flip side to that is underdog bets more often pay off, I guess I should be happy about that but its always hard to know when so I'll have to be braver on making that leap.
  1.90 is the 50/50 odds because some of the cut is the house take so thats how it appears.

Yea, that's true. Esports betting, especially CS:GO, was much easier before COVID-19 situation when we had LAN events and all kinds of offline events. Teams prepared specially for that kind of events. Now, when everybody is playing from their chair at home, situation is kinda different. A lot of upsets are happening, players are not playing in competitive environment and there are a lot of psychic problems, performance problems etc... So for that reason mentality of a players and team changed a lot. They had to adjust to new situation, and most of them didn't take it good. Some tournaments / matches are taken too lightly and surprises are happening. Scene is very unstable now and it's very hard to be. That's my opinion.
I only started betting on eSports after covid stopped all regular sports so I am not familiar with LAN scene and results at that time. This online tournaments are all I have ever seen so maybe I even have some small advantage of not being influenced by previous results. I find it quite easy to get value odds both in CS and DOTA. I bet mainly on underdogs to get 1 map and that has worked well for me.  I even have better results betting on eSports than football in this last month. Never thought I would write those words.

I'm into esports even before this virus, I've seen how the tournament vibes changes because of the hype the audience creates in the venue. However, I don't really see the lack of competitiveness they are talking about. Those players grew up playing online even in their own house, and pro players are still competitive whenever there's a game. Maybe we can't feel it cause there's not so much hype with the audience. Some of the pro players are together inside their bootcamp too. So maybe esports during this time is less hype compared to before but the pro players are still competetive just like before. I've seen it from other esports too, not just in CS and Dota 2.

Yes, but usually big offline events make players more competitive. Bigger prize pools, bigger risks, bigger stakes and insane crowds. It's quite different to play in such environment. Hype is bigger too, together with all the numbers. Of course we can't know exactly, how the players feel right now or how do they feel before. I guess it's easier for CS:GO player to stay at home, play the game, don't travel a lot, don't have too much stress and earn $40k / month.

Pitty, we lost it. NaVi won 2-1 vs OG, and Secret won 2-1 vs Nigma.
LOL, so if I were betting for OG then I am already loss with OG, I was a fan of then because of their great achievement and even winnings. They too had great plays and great combo but it seems that the match against Navi is not enough for them to advance in the league. However, win or lose I am still with OG team and that wi still follow their next match of the game.

What team next scheduled for.a match? So that we can discuss too with the other team that could possibly win and advance in the next few rounds

Well OG is really strong on paper, but they are still so unstable. Their performance can vary a lot and sometimes they just disappoint.

OG vs Alliance and Nigma vs loser of Liquid / mudgolems are scheduled for tomorrow. This should be pretty interesting. I think OG ML + Mudgolems if they lose to Liquid.

has anyone ever compared the odds of Esport matches with those of normal matches, and also to what extent the result roughly matches the offer?
1.90 odds should for example be 50-50 in the results, is that also the case with Esports, I am very curious about this.

Hmm, I got the point and I see what you are saying. But I would say that generally betting on esports is much harder, and in a lot of cases odds are not showing the real picture. Let's just say that in a much more cases underdogs can win in esports compared to sports.

Yea, sadly NaVi managed to drop a map, as I was afraid. However, all NaVi ML bets were a win.
They are now in the upper quarterfinals.

OG vs. NaVi.

Which team you are going to?
Wow, I think I was left behind with the update of dota2 tournament. It has been a while I was not able to watch tournament games in dota2 and this is the game I played a lot before compared to cs half life or now known as csgo. Whatever, Navi and OG are both good teams and in this case if you will going to ask me which team could win in this match then I will be for OG. They had made such reputation when they win the largest pot prize rewarded to  them when they win the interbational league and not onmy once they proved to themselves but twice.
We will see who will be the match-winner but the majority is for OG. Two time TI champs.

Yea, sadly NaVi managed to drop a map, as I was afraid. However, all NaVi ML bets were a win.
They are now in the upper quarterfinals.

OG vs. NaVi.

Which team you are going to?

OG for sure. Ill post my analysis soon!  Smiley
I've read your analysis and we have the same picks. 2 hours to go for OG vs Navi while 5 hours for Team Secret vs Nigma.

Good luck to your bets.

Edit: Navi advances to upper bracket round 2.

OG was sent to losers bracket.

Pitty, we lost it. NaVi won 2-1 vs OG, and Secret won 2-1 vs Nigma.

[DOTA 2] Friday, October 23rd picks and bets:

Here we go. It’s time for the ESL One Germany 2020 playoffs. 8 teams advanced from the group stage to the double elimination bracket playoffs with best of 3 matches all the way to the finals (best of 5). OG and Team Secret are the first teams to face their opponents. Let’s analyse their matches and make predictions.

OG - Natus Vincere: OG ML

What an amazing start of the playoffs. The 2x TI winners will face Natus Vincere, the most legendary Dota 2 organization. OG ended their group stage run in 4th place. With 3 wins and 1 loss they showed that they are really a big contender for the title. When playing well they can surely threaten Team Secret. OG have wins vs 2 young CIS squads, Winstrike and Yellow Submarine. Both matches ended up with a clean 2-0 win for OG. They’ve got their 3rd win vs Vikin.gg, recent BTS Pro Series champions. Another 2-0 result. However, OG dropped a series to Alliance with a close 1-2 result. But that match could go either way for sure. This new Natus Vincere squad (ex FlyToMoon) ended up in 6th place in the group rankings. With 3 wins and 2 losses they needed to play 1 extra match on the final group stage day to be able to qualify for the playoffs. They’ve beat all CIS teams they faced. 2-0 vs Cyber Legacy and Winstrike and 2-1 win vs Yellow Submarine. However, in the process they’ve managed to get crushed by mudgolems with 0-2, and by Liquid with a close 1-2 score. Basically they didn’t manage to win against either of the two teams that was their direct opponent for the playoffs. I expect that OG can go really far in this competition. I can say that I expect a top 3 placement from them. They didn’t deserve anything lower than that at the moment. Their last clash vs Natus Vincere was 1 month ago in the OGA Dota Pit, where NaVi took the whole series with a 2-1 victory. Interestingly enough, I don’t think they have too big a chance here. 3 maps are possible here, but I would go for the straight winner in this case. OG have better players and with NoTail on the help, they should proceed to the next round.

Team Secret - Team Nigma: Secret -1.5

I am not sure if I’m more excited for the first or second series today in ESL One Germany. Team Secret are the undisputed rulers of the European Dota 2. The best team in Europe for a mile. 7 championships in a row in Europe made them immortal in 2020. They don’t have a proper competition in Europe as there is no team that can come close to them. Their latest tournament victories are speaking for them. Seven grand finals, seven 3-0 victories. Team Secret ended up on the 1st place in the group stage rankings and they are the only team that didn’t lose a single map. Three matches, three straight 2-0 victories. They did beat Tempo Esports, Yellow Submarine and Team Liquid. On the other side there is Team Nigma. A team that is playing with a position 5 stand-in, as their coach rmN- is still playing instead of their injured captain Kuroky. Team Nigma ended up in 7th place in the group. They barely scraped through. 5 matches in total with 3 wins and 2 losses. They’ve opened this competition with a surprising 0-2 loss vs Yellow Submarine. After that they beat the worst team in the competition, Tempo Esports. Mudgolems proved too strong for Nigma at the moment as they’ve crushed them easily with 2-0. That was a breaking point for them, as they needed 2 wins from their last 2 matches potentially. A 2-0 win vs weak Winstrike brought them another chance and deciding match vs 5men. In a very close series after losing 0-1, Team Nigma managed to overcome their opponents in the next 2 maps and they won with 2-1 in the end. Very close match which showed a lot of Nigma’s weaknesses. Secret and Nigma played each other in the Beyond Epic EU/CIS grand finals, and that was their last match. It was almost 3 months ago and Team Secret were dominant there with a 3-0 win. Worst possible option for Nigma happened - to play Team Secret in the round 1 of playoffs. Sadly, I don’t think that they have too many chances here. With a stand-in and their bad play in the group stages, this should be Team Secret’s victory. 2-0 for Team Secret is very likely here as they are just on another level, especially compared to Nigma.

Team Spirit has most likely secured the first line in the group and I think they simply don’t have any motivation, why should they play with their tactics, you can just play in a relaxed way, the match for them does not solve anything.Winstrike at the end of the group stage, they can win, they have good selection of players, and sometimes they beat good teams, but here Spirit is without motivation, so we are waiting for Winstrike to win @3.88.

I don't agree with you, mostly likely is not enough. They need this win to ensure 1st spot 100%. They are highly motivated of course, and they are favourites to take this series. However, it can be close. If Winstrike rises their play compared to recent matches they can be really though to beat.

Yellow Submarine could be the biggest underdog in the competition for now. Their surprising performance managed to shock teams like Nigma and NiP. Their other two opponents were not easy either, OG and Secret. Those are the matches where they couldn’t do anything to much stronger teams. With 2 wins and 2 losses, both teams are fighting their deciding match. Natus Vincere’s performance is so inconsistent now, that I can see possibility for a surprise here. NaVi lost to mudgolems and Liquid, while they’ve beat two weaker CIS teams, Cyber Legacy and Winstrike. Seems like Yellow Submarine is in much better form, as they have 3 wins from their last 5 matches, while NaVi has only 2 wins. However, on paper, NaVi is a much stronger team. With V-Tune and Iceberg, I hardly can see them lose a match here. However, Yellow Submarine can pull off a map here for sure, it will all depend on a draft and ingame state. I would play safe here and go for NaVI ML odds. If you can find decent ones.
We have the same impression of Yellow Submarine. The only guy that I know from this team is miposhka and the others, I don't know where they came from. It's like a surprise player being led by a veteran.

For Navi, V-tune is one of the strongest carries in the CIS region. And that description is what I've been hearing from commentaries from lives that I watch.

Yea, sadly NaVi managed to drop a map, as I was afraid. However, all NaVi ML bets were a win.

[DOTA 2] Tuesday’s Round 5 will be the last play day of the group stage. We will find the last 3 teams that will get their ticket for the playoffs. We have 3 amazing series on Tuesday, let’s try to analyse matches and predict the winners.

5men - Nigma: 5men 1.5, 1.71 @ MY BETSLIP
Natus Vincere - Yellow Submarine: Natus Vincere -1.5, 1.78 @ MY BETSLIP
ViKin.gg - Ninjas in Pyjamas: Ninjas in Pyjamas 1.5, 1.40 @ MY BETSLIP

What an opening for the final group stage day we have here. 5men and Team Nigma are two teams that we expected to finish top 8. However, both teams need to fight until the end to get ther spot. Both teams have 2 wins and 2 losses in the competition. 5men won vs Extremum and Vikin.gg surprisingly enough. However, they’ve lost to NiP and Team Liquid by clean 0-2 results. Pity, because there is much more in them. Nigma however was the greatest disappointment of this tournament for now. They had one of the easiest schedules and opponents in the group stage, and they’ve managed to blow it away. Their opening 0-2 loss vs Yellow Submarine shocked us all. Another loss came vs underdogs mudgolems, while they’ve managed to beat Winstrike and Tempo to be here, in the last battle for the playoffs. Nigma’s play is really disappointing now, and I see a great potential for 5men surprise here. They can pull off a map for sure, even though Nigma is a far better team overall. But the current form is not on Nigma’s side.

Yellow Submarine could be the biggest underdog in the competition for now. Their surprising performance managed to shock teams like Nigma and NiP. Their other two opponents were not easy either, OG and Secret. Those are the matches where they couldn’t do anything to much stronger teams. With 2 wins and 2 losses, both teams are fighting their deciding match. Natus Vincere’s performance is so inconsistent now, that I can see possibility for a surprise here. NaVi lost to mudgolems and Liquid, while they’ve beat two weaker CIS teams, Cyber Legacy and Winstrike. Seems like Yellow Submarine is in much better form, as they have 3 wins from their last 5 matches, while NaVi has only 2 wins. However, on paper, NaVi is a much stronger team. With V-Tune and Iceberg, I hardly can see them lose a match here. However, Yellow Submarine can pull off a map here for sure, it will all depend on a draft and ingame state. I would play safe here and go for NaVI ML odds. If you can find decent ones.

I think this could be the closest series of the day. Those two teams have a rich match history recently. In the last month, they’ve played 3 times. Ninjas managed to take two series with clean 2-0 scores, while Vikin.gg managed to take their recent match with the same result. However, in this competition, they are even. 2 wins, 2 losses, and not great performance. NiP beat 5men and HellRaisers, while Vikin.gg, recent BTS Pro Series champions did beat HellRaisers and Cyber Legacy. Interestingly enough, they lost 1-2 to 5men, the team that was beaten by NiP. NiP really showed some glimpses of a good play like vs Alliance where they’ve taken a map. In other words, NiP has a positive map win-loss ratio here. 6 maps won, 4 lost. With that I believe they will be equal opponents to Vikin.gg today, and NiP handicap is a good bet to go here.
