TEAM LIQUID vs VIKIN.GG DOTA 2 BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

Event: Dota 2 – European DPC
Dota 2 odds: Liquid -208.33 at BetOnline | Vikin.gg +154 at BetOnline

Vikin.gg and Team Liquid will clash in the opening fixture of DreamLeague Season 14 DPC EU Upper Division. This will mark their first meeting since November when Vikin.gg reverse-swept (2-1) Liquid during the EPIC League.

Team Liquid have since looked fairly solid and also enjoyed a decent run in November-December. However, they also had a few iffy showings, which we expect to see a more of in their first games of the year.

Vikin.gg usually do well against Team Liquid (4-1 in 2020), which is why we can’t quite agree with the betting odds. At $2.54, Vikin.gg are overpriced, which presents us with a great value bet.

MUDGOLEMS vs TEAM SECRET BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

Event: Dota 2 – European DPC
Dota 2 odds: mudgolems +602 at BetOnline | Secret -1250 at BetOnline

Assuming The International 10 would have happened, it’s hard to imagine any team other than Team Secret lifting the Aegis of Champions, simply due to their superb form throughout 2020. That, however, was not as apparent towards the end of the season, when Secret started to slump.

What’s more, Team Secret have not played an official match since the second week of December, meaning they’re entering the DreamLeague a bit ring rusty. Mudgolems have played six games during that stretch, which includes three games from last week and while they were not particularly successful, mudgolems are at least not entering this match cold.

At $7.02, esports betting sites suggest mudgolems have only about 14.2% chance of winning which is way too low. They have forced Secret to three maps in their last meeting and there is nothing that would suggest mudgolems can’t do it again.
