Doze Reborn Face TriPALoSKY Squad in Epulze Dota2 League
The leading lights of the North American Epulze Global League lock horns for their next Dota2 fixture as Doze Reborn take on TriPALoSKY Squad. Doze currently sit at the summit of the table with seven points and a game in hand, winning three of their last four matches and drawing the other.
TriPALoSKY Squad, also known as TKS, have also accrued seven points, meaning they sit in second position, right on Doze’s heels. TKS have played five games so far, winning three, drawing one, and losing the other.
Dota 2 betting sites are predicting a Doze win, as they beat TKS in both of their previous meetings this year. TKS are by no means a pushover and so should make it difficult for their opponents in the best-of-two fixture, but the bookies are clearly leaning towards Doze in this one.
