The main occasion of this International 2019 is just a week off and odd-makers have contributed TNC Predator a much better shot at winning. Looking through the remainder of the DOTA two International chances, Team Secret’s odds improved much further despite already being acknowledged as the favorites.
*Opportunities accepted 09/08/19
According to July 5th, TNC Predator had 25-1 odds to win The International. Now suddenly a week ahead of the tournament, they have shortened to 18-1. The Southeast Asian group has not played in a championship since the EPICENTER Major at the end of June where they finished fourth. There are no new results to merit a change in odds therefore TNC Predator must be getting greater respect due to their current results. At the EPICENTER Major, TNC Predator finished over the likes of Team Secret, OG Esports, PSG.LGD and Ninjas In Pyjamas (NIP): all teams that had better odds than Vici on July 5th. The result that stands out is how that their 2-0 win on the Ninjas In Pyjamas at the group stage. Prior to this swap, NIP had greater odds to win regardless of their weight-loss.
The tournament prior to EPICENTER was ESL One Birmingham in which TNC Predator finished in fifth. They have been second in Group A with a 6-4 record which contained another 2-0 over the Ninjas. It looks like TNC Predator were finally given credit for their current domination of NIP. In +1800, they’re still big underdogs into a number of the highest DOTA2 teams, but they do pose better value than teams like OG.
Due to the current odds upgrade, Team Secret is now even more heavily favored. It has simply been their year. They have got first place finishes in The Chongqing Major, ESL One Katowice, the MDL Disneyland Paris Major, also yes the list Continues.
They definitely frustrated in the EPICENTER Major at which they finished ninth, but it would be shocking if they didn’t bounce back from it. Occasionally a loss is vital to help a team get even better.
Next to Team Secret in the chances is Vici Gambling. Vici presents better worth at 4-1 and they are coming off a win at the EPICENTER Major where Secret crashed out early. It’s not their very first tournament win. A good deal of people forget their triumph in DreamLeague Season 11 where they knocked Team Secret to the winners bracket and conquer Virtus.pro from the grand finals.
Vici is reckless, and if Team Secret is reeling then Vici will probably be in shape and prepared to capitalize.
Picks: Vici Gaming (+400)
Let’s have fun and keep it civil.
