Virtus.pro and AS Monaco Gambit last met back in April 2020 at ESL One Los Angeles EU & CIS, where Virtus.pro won 2-1 to improve their head-to-head record to 8-1. That number, however, does not hold much value since these two sides now field completely different rosters.
Virtus.pro enter this match with only two losses in their last 10 outings, but they’ve played only two games since the start of April and only five across the last two months. AS Monaco Gambit are 6-4 in the same stretch but played most of those games last month at the ONE Esports Singapore Major, where they did not disappoint.
We don’t see why Virtus.pro should be priced as low as they are with Dota 2 betting sites. They’re a bit ring rusty and now face a team that swept Team Liquid and Team Nigma just over two weeks ago. AS Monaco to win one map at -169.49 is a good bet, but we’re going all-in on the outsiders for this one.
