The OG vs. Vikin.gg odds above are offered by Betway, one of the top betting sites when it comes to esports and Dota 2. The bookmaker covers a couple of other options for this match, such as correct score and kills prop bets.
The main markets suggest that OG is the undisputed favorite here and that makes sense, considering the history of both sides and their recent form.
There’s little doubt that OG is among the top Dota 2 teams in the world and the two victories at the start of ESL One LA cemented the side’s status as one of the big favorites in Europe and CIS.
Nigma was smashed in the first round and OG beat B8 in the second, but that match wasn’t so easy. The squad actually lost one game against a relatively modest opposition which should serve as an alarm bell.
OG can’t afford any complacency at this level because the rest of the field will punish them. I expect an improved and more consistent performance from now, so that’s bad news for Vikin.gg.
I don’t think that Vikin.gg has reached the level to compete with opponents like OG yet, but the relatively young Romanian organization has shown a lot of promise since its foundation in the fall of 2019.
The team won several minor Dota 2 events and even registered a victory against Gambit Esports at the start of ESL One Los Angeles. The reality check came in the second round against Hellraisers when Vikin.gg lost 2-0.
It would be almost impossible to expect even one game against OG, but the upcoming match will provide valuable experience that could help Vikin.gg develop even further. It’s also a good indicator on the distance between the team and the top-tier units on the Dota 2 scene.
OG vs. Vikin.gg Prediction and Pick
- OG (-1.5); -200
There’s only one sensible OG vs. Vikin.gg prediction here and it’s for the favorite to win this match. The price of the bookmakers is too low to go for a straight victory, but the -200 for OG to cover the -1.5 maps handicap is a solid pick.
That’s what you can find at Betway and the odds offered by the other leading Dota 2 betting sites are similar.
