The DreamLeague Season 10 title odds have changed accordingly now that Team Liquid have dropped out of the tournament.
Considered one of the best Dota 2 teams in the world, Team Liquid were seen as a shoo-in to win the first Minor of the 2018-19 Dota Pro Circuit. Even though they stumbled and missed out on qualifying for the Kuala Lumpur Major, many still saw them as legitimate contenders who simply went through a cold spell at the wrong time. However, now that they are out, another team has replaced them on top of the latest DreamLeague Season 10 title odds.
According to the odds makers over at ArcaneBet, Royal Never Give Up are the heavy favourites to win at 2.50 odds (Bet $100 to win $250). CompLexity Gaming comes in second at 4.00 odds, followed by Tigers at 6.50 odds to round out the top three.
Losing Team Liquid is a huge blow in terms of viewership for the tournament. However, there is an upside to this. Because there are no proven contenders in the pool, every team has a fair chance to show their stuff.
Expect every one of the eight Dota 2 teams to give it their all with $125,000 and a spot at the Kuala Lumpur Major on the line.
DreamLeague Season 10 Title Odds
- Royal Never Give Up at 2.50 odds
- compLexity Gaming at 4.00 odds
- Tigers at 6.50 odds
- The Final Tribe at 8.00 odds
- Natus Vincere at 10.00 odds
- Team Lithium at 12.00 odds
- Infamous at 15.00 odds
- ROONS at 20.00 odds
A team composed of some of the youngest star players in China, Royal Never Give Up (2.50 odds) struck gold with their Dota 2 roster. However, the lack of international experience of its players is troubling. Although Tong ‘Mikasa‘ Junjie is a proven coach who helped guide the relatively inexperienced Newbee to a win at TI4, going all in on such a team is a lot riskier than the odds make it out to be.
On the other hand, Team Lithium (12.00 odds) are a team who’s on the up-and-up.
Brought in as a replacement for Team Liquid, this mix of European players have been playing relatively well since their inception and have the right mix of solid, experienced talent to win against international competition.
Of course, given the relatively even competition at the tournament, there’s really no telling who will win it all.
Every team has a fair chance of winning DreamLeague Season 10 and booking their flights for the Kuala Lumpur Major just a week after.
DreamLeague Season 10 will kick off on October 29 and run through November 4, a period of seven days, and will be held in their studio in Stockholm, Sweden.
Given the format of the previous DreamLeague tournaments, it’s highly likely that there won’t be a Group Stage. Instead, the tournament will start immediately with a double-elimination bracket, with best-of-three matches and a best-of-five Grand Finals.
DreamLeague Season 10 is the first LAN of the 2018-19 Dota Pro Circuit. It will feature eight qualifier teams from all over the world fighting over a prize pool of $300,000, 500 DPC points, and the sixteenth slot to the Kuala Lumpur Major.
