Team Spirit are undefeated across their last 22 outings (19-3-0) and enter this match on a 12-game winning streak, which includes six victories at The International 2023 against 9Pandas, Team SMG, Entity, Evil Geniuses, Shopify Rebellion, and team Spirit’s next opponents, Team Liquid, are like Team Spirit, in great form.

Team Liquid won Group B with a 3-1-0 record and one draw against Azure Ray and have since added a clean 2-0 sweep of Evil Geniuses and Talon Esports. Form-wise, the teams are in a great spot, and they both have the talent to go all the way, but there’s a reason why Team Spirit are priced as favourites.
The 2022 TI champions have beaten Team Liquid twice since July (2-1 and 3-1), and they’ve since looked progressively better. But as they’ve proven in Seattle, Team Liquid are no slouches, and they can make Spirit work hard for the win. Expect a close series.

Best Odds: LGD -188.68 at BetOnline | AR +137 at BetOnline

LGD Gaming went from one of the Dota 2 underdogs to win The International 2023 to one of the main favourites to go all the way. The Chinese powerhouse won Group C with relative ease and have since added two commanding sweeps of Keyd Stars and 9Pandas.

Their regional rivals have also held on well. After placing third in Group B (1-2-1), Azure Ray swept Entity and nouns to reach the upper bracket finals, which is a big accomplishment. However, AR have only beaten Thunder Awaken, Entity, and nouns, which is nothing to write home about.

LGD Gaming have met with Azure Ray twice since July and are 1-1-0 with a 1-1 draw and a 2-1 win during Bali Major 2023. Those results would suggest that Azure Ray stand a chance to force a close game, but since TI12 started, LGD Gaming have looked like an entirely different beast. We really like LGD Gaming with the top esports betting sites.
