Virtus.Pro put a stop to TNC Predator’s potential cinderella title run, and now, we’re down to just three Dota 2 teams.
Tomorrow, on the last day of the EPICENTER Major 2019, Virtus.Pro and Team Liquid will face off for a shot at the title match against Vici Gaming later on in the day.
Read on more below to see who we think will win in this all-too-familiar battle of heavyweights.
Team Liquid vs Virtus.Pro Betting Analysis
Historically, Team Liquid has had Virtus.Pro’s number.
In the 9 times that these two teams have met in a best-of-three or best-of-five over the past two years, Team Liquid has won 6 times.
That’s a 66% percent winrate over a team that’s widely considered one of the best Dota 2 teams of all time.
Even if that’s the case, that doesn’t mean we’re going to side immediately with Kuro “KuroKy” Salehi Takhasomi and his squad in this particular matchup.
You see, of those 9 times, 6 matches went down the wire, including a five-game series in the Grand Finals of last year’s Supermajor in China.
Given the complete unknown factor that is Aliwi “w33” Omar and the fact that Virtus.Pro most likely will still be willing to experiment in a match or two, even in a match as important as this one, it feels a whole lot safer to bank on this series going to the full third game.
Plus, there’s slightly more for you to win if you decide to go with an over/under pick.
With that said, our pick will neither be Team Liquid or Virtus.Pro.
Instead, our money’s on this series going to be another one for the ages, with both teams giving it all and slogging it out for more than two hours in three full games.
