CS:GO. LPL PRO LEAGUE SEASON 4 - Team Vertex vs Rooster (6:00 PM)
Team Vertex $2.50

VERTEX and Rooster are set to square off in the Upper Bracket final of LPL Pro League Season 4.

Rooster are the only really know quantity here, competing on the ELS circuit for some time now they were deservedly seed #1 heading into this comp.

VERTEX are very much the new kids on the block and needed to qualify for this Australian League. Despite their inexperience, the newcomers have flown through to the bracket finals in their first appearance in a recognised league.

The Bookies are siding with Experience in this one, but I believe VERTEX are every chance to spring an upset and take their third win on the trot.

CHINA DOTA2 PROFESSIONAL LEAGUE - Vici Gaming v Sparking Arrow Gaming (4:00 PM)
Over 2.5 Maps $2.15

Season 2 of the China Dota2 Professional League get underway this week as 10 teams fights it out for the USD$211k prize money on offer.

Vici Gaming came agonisingly close to being named champions in season 1, falling on the last hurdle against PSG.LGD. 

Sparking Arrow Gaming were crowned champions last season, a tier below in the China Dota2 Development League earning them a spot at the big dogs’ table.

SAG had an unbelievable run in the Development League, dropping just 3 maps from 20 over the regular season.

Vici have earned the right to. be short priced favourites heading into this fixture, but I’m expecting the newly promoted SAG to give them a fright in week 1.
