DOTA2 ESL - NINJAS IN PYJAMAS VS TEAM SPIRIT (4:00 AM)
Team Spirit 2-1 $3.50

Ninjas in Pyjamas square up against Team Spirit in the last Group B match for the ESL One Los Angeles 2020 Online series.

The result of this match will have huge implications for both sides, a win for Team Spirit should be enough to see them qualify for R1 of the Upper Bracket, while anything less than victory for NiP will see them miss out on the playoffs all together.

NiP have won three of the five matches they’ve played against Team Spirit, although Spirit dominated the last clash 2-0.

Team Spirit has been finding a way to win of late with three of the last four victories going to a third and deciding map, I’m backing this one to go the distance as well.

 

DOTA2 AMADEUS CUP - REVERSE HEAVEN VS NEON ESPORTS (4:00 PM)
REVERSE HEAVEN $2.75

Reverse Heaven lock horns with Neon Esports in the Upper Bracket Finals of the Amadeus Cup.

Both sides flew through the group stage undefeated and are yet to taste defeat in April, each with a record of three wins and three draws.

There are no previous encounters between these two sides to draw insights from, RH have only been in the game for a split second, playing 13 ranked matches compared to Neon’s 300+.

Neon’s experience has the bookies sold, although recent form suggests this one is going to go down to the wire, as such I’m more than happy to take the Reverse Heaven at their current price.
