Thunder Awaken vs OG

Odds: Thunder Awaken 2.22 / OG 1.63 at GG.Bet

When: May 21, 2022 at 12:00 CEST

After a massive comeback against Fnatic, we would be crazy if we did not back OG in this one. With a mixture of experience and raw skill, this team should definitely be on the radar of every punter out there.

We got nothing to take from Thunder Awaken in this one. They placed second in the group and played competitive Dota 2 against the best teams from their group. In the playoffs, they have already played two matches. They came out on top after the deciding map against BetBoom Team, in a very tense bout.

However, in their upper bracket match against Tundra Esports, they bit off more than they can chew and they were nowhere to be seen over the course of two maps.  OG, on the other hand, did not show up in their match against TSM, and they were on a brink of defeat against T1.

After such a rollercoaster, OG will consolidate and they will win this match without problems. The best thing about this bet is that the betting sites are close to rating this as a coin flip, as Dota 2 odds on OG are more than tempting.

Tundra Esports vs TSM

Odds: Tundra Esports 1.35 / TSM 3.09 at GG.Bet

When: May 21, 2022 at 15:35 CEST

Watch Live:

In our books, this should be a straightforward match. Tundra Esports looked solid in the playoffs so far. Beating both Team Spirit and Thunder Awaken set them for success as they are looking to reach the grand finals through the upper bracket.

They will have a solid chance of going straight to the finals as TSM is nothing special, and from our point of view, they are quite lucky to even be in the playoffs. They did not show much in the group stage and we are not really amazed at what we saw from them in the playoffs so far.

Ultimately, Tundra Esports are the go-to favorites for ESL One Stockholm Major Betting. They were impressive on their path toward the trophy and we believe that they will go all the way in this one. When it comes to Dota 2 predictions, betting on Tundra Esports does not come with much value.

This is why we are going to opt-in for a riskier bet. This team is steps ahead of TSM in every aspect of Dota 2 and they should win this one without dropping a map.

Betting sites like Betway and tend to offer bets for the heroes to be picked on a map. With that being said, here are a couple of statistics that you can use to profit from betting on this Dota 2 tournament:

  1. Mars is the most played hero in the pool. Out of the 105 games that were played so far at ESL One Stockholm, Mars was played in 52 bouts which represents a solid pick for the bet we talked about.
  2. On top of that, you can also capitalize on Chaos Knight and Grimstroke to be picked as they have seen action in 41 and 40 matches out of the 105 played.
