DreamLeague Season 14 Final Week Predictions

Posted on February 23, 2021

With both the Upper and Lower DreamLeague Season 14 divisions drawing to a close, we’ve said goodbye to some teams, while others have booked themselves a spot at the upcoming Singapore Major.

Both Vikin.gg and High Coast Esports have been relegated from the Upper Division, while the Lower Division itself has been turned into a messy affair with burjui’s disqualification and Meta4Pro withdrawing from the tournament.

While Creepwave, Hellbear Smashers, and Brame will more than likely find themselves stuck in a three-way tie for promotion, Team Secret has comfortably secured first place and a spot at the Major Playoffs in the Upper Division.

With all of the teams, save for Secret, the relegates, and Tundra, in the Upper Division separated by a single match, expect nothing short of a true Dota 2 blood bath heading into the final days of DreamLeague Season 14.

High Coast Esports vs. Team Nigma

Heading into the matchup, Team Nigma needs the victory against a High Coast squad that has nothing left to lose. Although Nigma lost to Vikin.gg, another team that has found itself relegated, we do not expect them to make the same mistake twice.

Kuroky’s boys had a dominant showing in their last series against Tundra Esports, then still a direct contender for a spot at the upcoming Major, clean sweeping the former mudgolems.

High Coast Esports on the other hand will find this series an uphill battle against the highly motivated Nigma squad, as their chances are looking slim to none.

Pick: Team Nigma to win 2-0
Odds: 1.61

Team Liquid vs. Alliance

Both teams are stuck in a battle for the Major spot, with Alliance currently in second place with a 4W-2L ratio, compared to Liquid’s 3W-3L. A victory here would cement Alliance’s place as the runners up, while a Liquid victory would see them fight another day for their spot at the Major.

Expect a true war of attrition between these two teams, as both are evenly matched in almost every category imaginable.

Although we’d give Team Liquid a slight edge heading into the series, it’s going to be a huge surprise if this series doesn’t go the full three maps.

Odds: 1.81

Spider Pigz vs. Hellbear Smashers

With Spider Pigz’ fate has been sealed, as the Balkan team will survive to fight for another season in the Lower Division, all eyes are on Hellbear Smashers and a possible three-way tie between them, Brame and Creepwave.

Heading into the matchup, Hellbear Smashers is the better-organized squad, making fewer clinical mistakes when it mattered the most. Spider Pigz is by no means a bad team, but their decision-making at times left a lot to be desired. But if you look closely at the Spider Pigz matches, you can see that they never went down without a fight, taking a map from every opponent that has beaten them so far.

Heading into the matchup, we’re betting on history repeating itself, as we see the series going the full length.

Prediction: Total maps | Over 2.5 |
Odds: 2.43

OG vs. Secret

Team Secret has once again confirmed their place as the dominant force in the European Dota 2 scene, amassing a perfect 6-0 record in DreamLeague so far. On the other hand, OG has never been known as the best Group Stage team but has always shown up when it mattered the most.

OG is in a precarious spot heading into the matchup, as even a loss here could leave them with a chance to qualify for the Major, based on how Nigma and Liquid fare against their opponents.

But OG hold their fate in their own hands, and we expect another OG miracle is in the making here, even though the odds are stacked against them.

Pick: OG
Odds: 2.89
