GEEK FAM vs T1 ONE ESPORTS DOTA 2 SEA LEAGUE BETTING PREVIEW
The ONE Esports Dota 2 SEA League is set to return with Week 4 matches this Thursday, when we will see Geek Fam clash with T1 for the fourth time this year.
Geek Fam made some serious noise with their title-winning run at BTS Pro Series Season 2: Southeast Asia last month. Even though the competition featured some of the top Dota 2 esports teams in the region, Carlo “KuKu” Palad and his crew defeated Fnatic (2-1) and BOOM Esports twice (2-1 and 3-0) in the playoffs to claim the top prize.
Geek Fam also appeared at the Asia Summer Championship, where they failed to replicate their form in the BTS Pro Series. After finishing the group stage in fourth and making it through the first two rounds of the lower bracket playoffs, they lost to eventual finalists NEW Esports (0-2) in the third round and had to settle for fourth place.
Since then, Geek Fam have played only two games in the ONE Esports SEA Dota 2 League, drawing with Reality Rift last Friday and claiming a revenge win against NEW on Saturday. Before those fixtures they played out a stalemate with Neon Esports and lost to BOOM, which sits them at eighth place with 2-2-1 record.

T1 enter this match with a solid 3-1-3 record next to their name. They defeated Execration, BOOM and Reality Rift, drew with Adroit, and lost to NEW, Fnatic and Neon.
T1 also participated at BTS Pro Series Season 2: Southeast Asia, but they failed to see much success. After finishing the group stage 3-3-3, they lost to TNC Predator (0-2) in the opening round of lower bracket playoffs to finish in seventh-eighth place. Since then, T1 have not participated in any other tournament besides the ONE Esports Dota 2 SEA League.
Neither team have made any roster changes in the last month. T1’s new Dota2 squad has stood firm since late May, when they acquired Galvin “Meracle” Kang Jian Wen and Wilson “Poloson” Koh Chin Wei as replacements for Dominik “Black^” Reitmeier and Yixaun “xuan” Guo. Geek Fam, on the other end, made their last roster change in January, when they signed Matthew “Whitemon” Filemon.
GEEK FAM vs T1 ONE ESPORTS DOTA 2 SEA LEAGUE BETTING PREDICTIONS
These teams have met three times in their history. Their first clash happened in April at BTS Pro Series Season 1, where Geek Fam edged out a 2-1 win. They repeated that feat a month later during the Cyber.bet Cup: Spring Series, where KuKu and his crew won 2-0.
Their most recent bout happened just under a month ago at BTS Pro Series Season 2. T1 took the series lead with a phenomenal comeback but failed to seal the deal, as they suffered a heavy defeat on the second map. The bout ended in a stalemate, which suggests T1 could potentially force another draw here.
Both team are 4-2-4 in their last 10 fixtures, but it would be fair to say T1 have shown a lot more in the last couple of weeks. They defeated BOOM Esports and Reality Rift, and drew with both TNC and Adroit, whereas Geek Fam only managed to take down NEW Esports and two semi-amateur teams in Motivade.Trust Gaming and Team Strawberry.
Even though Geek Fam have historically dominated this matchup, the high odds offered on T1 make no sense. Lee “Forev” Sang-don and co. have shown signs of improvement lately and should have what it takes to win at least one map. An outright bet on T1 is also worth considering at great odds.
