OG Seed Team Analysis
As you can see from the odds above, OG Seed is a strong favorite in this match. The team started the StayHome challenge well, beating Cyber Legacy in the opening encounter. That victory was followed by two defeats that sent OG Seed to the loser’s bracket, though.
On the bright side, the initial win was enough to least get the third place in Group B and the better seed for the playoffs. That means OG Seed will face the last team from the other group, Empire Hope and that’s an excellent opportunity to go to the next round and gather some momentum.
Team Empire Hope Team Analysis
Team Empire Hope was left by its captain Kidaro at the end of February and he was replaced by EcNart almost immediately. The squad’s results in March have been decent when it comes to minor Dota 2 competitions, but Empire Hope registered two defeats in Group A of the StayHome Challenge.
Surprisingly, the team did win one game in the loss against Viking.gg and showed some promise. Next in line was the lackluster defeat against Team Unique that suggests this might have been a fluke.
Most games so far imply that Empire Hope can’t compete at such level right now and that’s normal for a team that changed its captain recently.
OG Seed vs. Team Empire Hope Prediction and Pick
- OG Seed (-1.5); +106
There’s little doubt that OG Seed has more quality and experience than the opponent in this match. It should be a comfortable victory for the squad and that’s my prediction.
As for the best OG Seed vs. Team Empire Hope betting pick, I believe that backing the favorites to cover the -1.5 map advantage at the odds of +106 has the most value.
