NIGMA vs OG BEYOND EPIC: EUROPE/CIS BETTING PREVIEW

Team Nigma and OG will do battle this Tuesday on the second day of the BEYOND EPIC: Europe/CIS Dota 2 tournament, which features 12 teams and a US $200,000 prize pool.

With a back-to-back titles at The International under their belt, OG are the most successful Dota 2 esports organisation in the world. However, the current version of this European powerhouse has not been performing up to par with the expectations.

A lot of OG’s shaky performances come down to the fact they have struggled to field a complete roster since the turn of the year. Topias “Topson” Taavitsainen could not help his team at WeSave! Charity Play, ESL One Los Angeles 2020 – Online: Europe & CIS, WePlay! Pushka League, Gamers Without Borders and OGA Dota PIT 2020 Online: Europe/CIS, while Yeik “MidOne” Nai Zheng did not attend the ESL One LA and WeSave! events.

The only two events since the start of the year where we saw OG field a full roster were ESL One Birmingham 2020 – Online: Europe & CIS and BLAST Bounty Hunt. OG managed only 13th-14th place at ESL One Birmingham with a 1-6 record in the group stage but looked fairly solid at BLAST Bounty Hunt, where they reached the finals.

Team Nigma’s 2020 results are all over the place and clearly show this team’s biggest problem: inconsistency. They deserve some slack, however, since many top-tier teams tend to struggle with stability in the online format.

Nigma’s biggest achievements of the year include titles from WePlay! Bukovel Minor 2020, WePlay! Dota 2 Tug of War: Mad Moon and WeSave! Charity Play – EU & CIS. They also took a swing at ESL One Los Angeles 2020, WePlay! Pushka League, ESL One Birmingham 2020 and BLAST Bounty Hunt, although they failed to see much success in those events.

The most recent of those outings was BLAST Bounty Hunt, where Nigma defeated Team Liquid (2-1), lost to Team Secret (1-2), bounced back with wins against Ninjas in Pyjamas (2-0) and Liquid (2-1) but suffered a devastating 0-2 loss against OG in the lower bracket finals to finish third.

Team NIGMA vs OG BEYOND EPIC: EUROPE/CIS BETTING PREDICTIONS

OG enter this match with a 3-7 record from their last 10 fixtures, while Team Nigma went 5-5 in their last 10. That, however, does not take away from the fact that OG have yet to lose against Nigma.

These teams have met four times already in 2020 and each time it was OG who came out ahead. The aggregate map score shows an 8-1 lead for OG, who trounced Nigma only last Saturday, so it’s hard to agree with the bookmakers’ match odds on this occasion.

Even so, the over 2.5 bet is the way to go. OG have been struggling for consistency in recent weeks and we don’t trust them to deliver another sweep here.
