TSM vs Virtus.pro

The International Group Stage Phase 2 Betting Preview & Odds

  • Schedule: 14/10 – 22:00 CEST

So far at The International, TSM has performed rather surprisingly in their Dota 2 TI schedule of matches, managing to secure a second-place finish in Group D. Nobody expected this from an NA team apart from Shopify Rebellion.

On the other hand, Virtus.pro are yet to win a series yet, managing to squeak by with three draws in Group C.

Considering their performances at the event so far, TSM are favoured to edge out Virtus.pro here.

  • Predictions: TSM (2-1) Virtus.pro
  • Odds: TSM Outright Win (-154), Virtus.pro Outright Win (+110),
  • Betting Site: Thunderpick

BetBoom Team vs 9Pandas

  • Schedule: 15/10 – 22:00 CEST

Prior to TI, BetBoom Team were peaking at the right time thanks to a strong performance at DreamLeague Season 21.

Moreover, they carried that performance to finish second in Group B and look favoured in the Dota 2 TI brackets.

Meanwhile, although 9Pandas have consistently competed internationally as a top EEU team, their poor form in the past month is hard to ignore.

Accordingly, BetBoom will likely win this with confidence.

  • Predictions: BetBoom Team (2-0) 9Pandas
  • Odds: BetBoom Team Outright Win (-250)9Pandas Outright Win (+170),
  • Betting Site: Thunderpick

Entity vs Azure Ray

The International Group Stage Phase 2 Betting Preview & Odds

  • Schedule: 16/10 – 04:00 CEST

Dota TI esports betting sites are having a tough time picking a winner between the Dota 2 TI teams of Entity and Azure Ray.

That’s because both Entity and Azure Ray performed identically in Phase One, with a 1-2-1 record.

At this point, the odds are even between the teams. If we had to pick one, we’d have to side with Entity thanks to their recent 5-6th finish at DreamLeague Season 21.

Meanwhile, Azure Ray don’t have much experience to show for in this tight match.

  • Predictions: Entity (2-1) Azure Ray
  • Odds: Entity Outright Win (-122), Azure Ray Outright Win (-114)
  • Betting Site: Thunderpick

Gaimin Gladiators vs Talon Esports

  • Schedule: 15/10 – 04:00 CEST

There were doubts over Gaimin Gladiators at this event – would they remain dominant on the TI standings?

Over in Group C, they managed to place second, with a surprising loss to LGD Gaming.

However, they look strong enough to be favoured against Talon Esports. All season long and at this event, Gaimin Gladiators is favoured in this match-up.

  • Predictions: Gaimin Gladiators (2-0) Talon Esports
  • Odds: Gaimin Gladiators Outright Win (-357), Talon Esports Outright Win (+230)
  • Betting Site: Thunderpick
