ESL One Berlin Major Playoffs – Odds and Predictions

PSG.LGD vs Talon Esports

As the final match of the Lower Bracket, Talon Esports earned their spot here after placing fifth in their respective group.

Meanwhile, PSG.LGD started in the Upper Bracket only to fall to Tundra Esports in the Upper Bracket Quarterfinals.

Considering that PSG.LGD gave Tundra quite a good fight, they are the favourites in this match against Talon Esports, as shown by the Dota 2 betting odds.

  • Predictions: PSG.LGD (2-1) Talon Esports
  • Odds: PSG.LGD Outright Win (1.52), Talon Esports Outright Win (2.35)

Gaimin Gladiators vs OG

So far at this tournament, Gaimin Gladiators have performed incredibly well, going flawless in Group A.

Correspondingly, OG finished second in Group B, also avoiding any losses.

Now, both teams from Western Europe will now rematch each other for the first time since they met in the WEU DPC. Back then, Gaimin Gladiators walked away with a 2-0 scoreline.

Considering this, Gaimin Gladiators are the favourites in this match-up.

  • Predictions: Gaimin Gladiators (2-0) OG
  • Odds: Gaimin Gladiators Outright Win (1.25), OG Outright Win (3.5)
  • Betting Site: BC.Game

9 Pandas vs Tundra Esports

On the other side of the bracket is perhaps a more curious match-up. Moreover, while Tundra Esports look to carry the momentum after taking down PSG.LGD, 9 Pandas recently swept aside Shopify Rebellion.

Considering that Tundra Esports have remained undefeated so far in this competition, this is a tall order for the ex-HellRaisers squad of 9 Pandas.

Although 9 Pandas have an opportunity to upset here, Tundra Esports are the favourites to make it all the way according to the Dota 2 betting odds.

  • Predictions: 9 Pandas (2-1) Tundra Esports
  • Odds: 9 Pandas Outright Win (2.3), Tundra Outright Win (1.55)
  • Betting Site: BC.Game
