Cloud9 vs. Evil Geniuses Betting Preview and Prediction

The first and the last team in the BTS Pro Series: Americas standings face each other today. Evil Geniuses is cruising right now with three wins from three matches, while Cloud9 lost all of its first four encounters in the tournament.

On the bright side, the team won a game for the first time last night against a strong opponent like Quincy Crew (and ruined one of my picks yesterday!). I share my thoughts on what’s going to happen today in this Cloud9 vs. Evil Geniuses betting preview.

It also features the latest odds, analysis of both sides, and my recommendation for the best betting pick.

Cloud9 vs. Evil Geniuses Odds and Lines

  • Cloud9 to win +774
  • Evil Geniuses to win -1667
  • Cloud9 (+1.5) +201
  • Evil Geniuses (-1.5) -270
  • Under 2.5 -323
  • Over 2.5 +238

As you can see by the Cloud9 vs. Evil Geniuses odds offered by, a win for Evil Geniuses won’t surprise anyone and it’s hard to argue against that.

If you are not satisfied with the main markets, you can always try one of the many alternatives offered by the bookmaker. That’s what I intend to do today, as you will see below.

Cloud9 Team Analysis

The performance of Cloud9 at the BTS Pro Series has been a disaster so far. The team has no chance of progressing to the next stage and lost every single match so far. The only bright light is the victory in the first game against Quincy Crew.

It was a marathon of a game that lasted over 65 minutes which is something you rarely see on the Dota 2 scene nowadays. It showed that Cloud9 desperately wants to earn at least some respect and I admire the side’s effort.

And yet, I would say that it was more of a case of sloppiness on Quincy Crew’s side that stepped up in the next two games and easily won the match. I suspect we will see more of that against Evil Geniuses.

Evil Geniuses Team Analysis

I’m really impressed by the style of Evil Geniuses so far. The team is trying to play fast-paced lineups and push the opposition right from the start. Most games won by the Geniuses are done and dusted after 20-30 minutes.

The other teams know what’s coming their way and they still can’t do anything against it. That’s how good the drafting and execution have been for Evil Geniuses. I see no reason why something should change against the worst team in the group today.

Cloud9 vs. Evil Geniuses Prediction and Betting Pick

  • Total time (map 1) under 32:00 -120

The obvious Cloud9 vs. Evil Geniuses prediction would be to back the favorite here, but the odds for a straight win are abysmal. Even the price for the -1.5 map advantage is slightly too short for my taste, so I’m going to try something different here.

Considering the strategy applied by the Evil Geniuses in most of their games, I believe that the best betting pick here is to go for under 32 minutes total time in the opening game. The favorite has dismantled many opponents for less than that and you can get the solid price of -120.
