Are you looking for a Dota Betting Guide for today’s matches at the Dota PIT League Minor? Well, look no more.
We’ll give you our carefully thought of Dota betting picks for the day, from which teams are worth risking on, how risky it is to bet on a certain team, and other special bets that you may want to take note of.
Newbee vs SG e-sports
Are Newbee a good bet? No. Their inconsistency raises a lot of doubts. Plus, they typically don’t adjust that fast to patches, especially compared to other top-tier teams. However, this is SG e-sports they’re going up against first, a squad that, although capable, has failed to advance to the playoffs in every one of the LAN finals they’ve attended so far.
Betting: Newbee to go 2-1 at 5/2 (bet365); Total Maps Over/Under 2.5 at 13/8 (bet365)
Team Liquid vs Immortals
Losing a series against Virtus.Pro and Team Secret respectively showed that Team Liquid are not invulnerable. And, via transitive property, Immortals, who defeated Team Secret twice at the Group Stages of the PGL Minor, should have a fair chance to take down the reigning chance.
Of course, things don’t exactly work that way, but, at 3.84 odds to take the series, as per ggbet, betting on Immortals to win isn’t half bad.
Just don’t expect Team Liquid to start losing more often after failing to win their first LAN in six tries.
Betting: Immortals 1st/2nd MAP – Race to 10 Kills at 2.15 (ggbet); Team Liquid to win 2-1 at 2.9 odds (ggbet)
Semifinals Matchup of the Day
If things line up well with our Dota betting picks for the day, the last matchup of Day 1 of the Dota PIT Minor will be between Team Liquid and Newbee.
Drama-wise, it’s good to bet on Newbee; they’re out for blood for the humiliating 3-0 drubbing Team Liquid gave them in the Grand Finals of The International 7. However, drama doesn’t win games and last time I checked, Team Liquid is still widely considered as the best Dota 2 team in the world.
If an upset does happen and Newbee doesn’t advance, bet on whoever wins between Immortals and Team Liquid.
The latter is pretty much self-explanatory. Meanwhile, Immortals’ playstyle lends to the uncertainty of the current meta as they relish in chaos and their relentless aggression can throw most teams off of their game.
