Dignitas vs. Astralis Betting Preview and Prediction, May 5, 2020

I can’t wait for some of the matches on the ESL One Road to Rio schedule today. Group B in Europe is especially exciting and the clash between Astralis and Dignitas is among the most anticipated.

The Danish team is leading the group while the opponent sits at the bottom, so it shouldn’t be too competitive, right? Well, I have some other ideas that you can find in this Dignitas vs. Astralis betting preview.

Dignitas Team Analysis

On the surface, Dignitas has been hopeless in the ESL One Road to Rio. The team is in the last position of Group B and has no chance for the playoffs, even in theory. And yet, I would argue that Dig has been competitive for most of the tournament.

The squad registered an awesome victory over Fnatic and pushed the likes of Heretics and ENCE to the limit. The only defeat that wasn’t close was against the high-flying Ninjas in Pyjamas. That’s a respectable run despite the lack of wins and I believe that Dignitas is not doomed against Astralis.

Astralis Team Analysis

The start of Astralis in the ESL One Road to Rio hasn’t been the best. The team barely beat Complexity and then lost against Fnatic. It has been much better since, as the Danes destroyed Vitality before beating Ninjas in Pyjamas and Heretics as well.

That could be enough for a place in the playoffs and another victory today opens the door to the first place in the group. I’m sure that Astralis will be confident in the upcoming match, actually, the main danger is that the team might be too confident.

Dignitas vs. Astralis Free Pick

  • Over 2.5; +178

Based on the performance of both sides today, Astralis is the deserved favorite for this match. However, Dignitas won’t be a sitting duck and the team has shown enough potential to suggest that winning a map is not out of the question, especially if Astralis underestimated their opponent.

Under such circumstances, I believe that the over 2.5 maps outcome available for +178 is by far the best betting pick for this match.
