VICI GAMING vs KEEN GAMING CHINA DOTA 2 PRO LEAGUE SEASON 2 BETTING PREVIEW
Keen Gaming will play their second-to-last fixture of China Dota2 Professional League Season 2 this Sunday when they face ViCi Gaming for the second time this year.
ViCi Gaming enter Week 5 with a 3-2 record next to their name, which sits them in sixth place. While they disposed of Newbee, Sparking Arrow Gaming and Team Aster with ease, they failed to deliver against two of the strongest Chinese Dota2 teams in Royal Never Give Up and PSG.LGD.
While a 60% win rate is nothing to brag about, it leaves the door to the playoffs wide open for Zhang “Eurus” Chengjun and his crew. As it stands now, ViCi are one win short of reaching a top-four placement. With CDEC Gaming, Keen Gaming, EHOME and Invictus Gaming as their next four opponents, the finalists at The International 2014 will fancy their chances of progressing.

Keen Gaming are on a neverending quest to establish themselves as one of the strongest Chinese Dota2 teams. While this squad have had a few flashes of greatness in their 2.5-year history, they are still nothing more than mediocre.
On Friday, Keen Gaming went through a massive roster reshuffle that saw the departure of coach Tang “71” Weny, Zhai “一” Jingkai, Tue “ah fu” Soon Chuan and Xiao “ShengSi” Yihu. As their replacements, Keen brought in Xu “Blood” Ziliang, Zhuang “xiaofu” Yongfu, Yu “Fantasy” Yajun and coach Chen “86” Yuxuan, all formerly members of KG.Luminous.
Since Keen Gaming lost two core members and one of the most experienced coaches in the Dota2 esports scene, it’s hard to be overly optimistic about their chances this weekend. When you throw in KG’s 3-7 record in their last 10 meetings with ViCi, the outlook is very bleak indeed.

There is no solid argument for siding with Keen Gaming, who field a squad loaded with potential but lacking in experience. Although ViCi Gaming are in the midst of some shaky form, there is no doubting that they are the stronger side here.
Esports bookmakers have ViCi priced as heavy favourites in both the outright betting and the map line, where they are paying around -149.25 to win in a clean sweep. Keen have lost five of their six matches this season and have a poor record against ViCi, so the -1.5 handicap looks doable for Eurus and company.
