OG vs HELLRAISERS OGA Dota PIT 2020 Online: Europe/CIS BETTING PREVIEW
The newly announced OGA Dota PIT 2020 Online tournament for European and CIS teams is set to get underway this Wednesday with an opening fixture between HellRaisers and OG.
Although OG assembled their new roster over three months ago, we have only seen their full lineup in action twice – at the open and closed qualifiers for ESL One Los Angeles 2020 Europe, where they lost only one map across both events. The COVID-19 pandemic has made it impossible for such a diverse team to field a complete squad, so they have been forced to use stand-in players over the past few weeks.
At the WePlay! Pushka League, which concluded last week, OG finished in ninth-10th place with a 2-4 record, but that was no shock given Irakli “W1sh-” Peranidze was filling in and Yeik “MidOne” Nai Zheng was forced to play with 190+ ping. OG have yet to unveil their lineup for OGA Dota PIT event, but Topias “Topson” Taavitsainen has returned to Europe this weekend and is expected to play.

HellRaisers enter the OGA Dota PIT tournament on the heels of a very shaky run in the Pushka League. While they managed to top their group with a 5-1 record, Alexander “Nix” Levin and co. crashed and burned in the playoffs with losses to Ninjas in Pyjamas and Virtus.pro.
Inconsistency has been the main theme for HellRaisers throughout 2020. In March, Nix and his crew made it to the WeSave! Charity Play finals, only to lose to Nigma (2-3), while they completely underperformed at Parimatch League Season 2, where they finished third following a humiliating 0-2 loss against FlyToMoon.
HellRaisers have proven before that they can exploit the weaknesses of the stronger teams, due largely to the vast experience of Gleb “Funn1k” Lipatnikov and Vladimir “RodjER” Nikogosyan. When it comes to raw quality, however, HellRaisers are somewhat lacking.
OG vs HELLRAISERS OGA Dota PIT 2020 Online: Europe/CIS BETTING PREDICTIONS
These teams met in mid-April at ESL One Los Angeles 2020 – Online: Europe & CIS, where OG came out ahead with a convincing 2-0 win despite fielding Neta “33” Shapira and Sebastien “Ceb” Debs as stand-ins. While they enter this match with a different roster, we can still use that result a strong indicator.
If OG stomped HellRaisers with 33 in the team, they should have no difficulties now that Topson is back in the fold. The Finnish star might be a bit rusty considering he hasn’t played a competitive Dota2 match since February, but his quality alone takes this team to a different level.
Even if we consider the worst-case scenario, where Topson will not be able to play for OG, the outright odds on OG are just too high for us to ignore.
