DOTA 2 - CHINA DOTA2 PROFESSIONAL LEAGUE: Vici Gaming vs Invictus Gaming (1:00 PM)
Vici Gaming 2-0 $2.25

China Dota2 Professional League Season 1 enters the playoffs bracket on Friday afternoon (AEDT) as Vici Gaming go head to head with Invictus Gaming.

Vici Gaming finished the regular season on top of the table with an impressive 7-2 record across nine games, as such they’ve earned the right to face fourth seed Invictus Gaming (5-4) in upper bracket round 1.

Vici dominated throughout the regular season, with all seven of their wins coming without the loss of a map, including a 2-0 victory over Invictus in week 1. 

Invictus snuck into the playoff with two wins against bottom ranked teams in the final week of the regular season, they failed to take a map of either of the top two sides in the league and looked out of their depth in this contest.

DOTA 2 - CHINA DOTA2 PROFESSIONAL LEAGUE: PSG.LGD vs Royal Never Give Up (4:00 PM)
Over 2.5 Maps $1.87

PSG.LGD and Royal Never Give Up make up the other two places in the China Dota2 PL, PSG finish second behind Vici also with a 7-2 record, while RNGU came in just behind with 6 wins, 3 losses.

Like Vici, PSG were dominant, thought the season, winning seven matches 2-0, only dropping maps to Vici Gaming and you guessed it, Royal Never Give UP.

RNGU dealt PSG their first defeat of the season in week 6, taking the match on the third map. 

These sides are evenly matched, PSG looked more consistant throughout the season, but RNGU will feel as though they have a mental edge following their recent H2H history, as such I’m backing this one to head into a deciding map.
