Wednesday’s clash will mark only the second meeting in history between these two sides, and their first since the ONE Esports Singapore Major in March when they parted ways with a 1-1 draw.

Team Nigma enter this match as the betting favourites, which makes sense since they hail from a highly competitive European region. In our previous Dota 2 betting previews, we touched on Nigma’s inconsistency and how has this trait has held them back throughout the season. Vici Gaming aren’t much different in that aspect.

Vici can have days when they’ll beat some of the best Chinese teams, but they’re also more than capable of losing against second-tier squads. Out of the two, we are giving Nigma a better chance to make it out of this stage, but since this is the tournament’s opening round, you can’t really know what will happen.

The price for the draw is hard to ignore, but if you’re looking for a moneyline pick, Nigma are the better choice.

Invictus Gaming are the reigning ONE Esports Singapore Major champions and are already guaranteed a spot at The International 10. Although we wouldn’t put too much weight on their title-winning run at the first Dota 2 Major of the year, it’s essential to keep in mind that IG don’t really need to win in Ukraine, so they might lack the motivation to give it 100%.

It’s not only the lack of motivation that concerns us, but also IG’s shaky form and that they’ll have to play with their coach, Su “super” Peng. Super will replace IG’s key player, Chan “Oli~” Chon, who is grounded in Malaysia due to a false positive COVID-19 test.

Invictus Gaming still seem stronger than Execration since the latter hail from a relatively weak region, but it’s not like the underdogs can’t punch up. IG enter this match weakened and should be vulnerable enough for Execration to steal one map.

Execration +1.5 maps
