The close qualifier for the Omega League: Europe provides an excellent opportunity for some lesser teams to face the top Dota 2 squads in the region. There are two places for the Immortal Division up for grabs and the playoffs start soon.
The group stages have to finish first, though, and one of the games left is between Omegalil and Team Voldemort. I don’t think anyone expects them to do something special in the competition, but they are still standing and one of the sides will reach the knockouts after today’s encounter.
I share my thoughts on the upcoming match in this Omegalil vs. Team Voldemort betting preview. It features the latest odds, analysis of both teams, my prediction, and a free betting pick.

The Omegalil vs. Team Voldemort odds I’ve used in my preview are courtesy of BetOnline, one of the top betting sites for Dota 2. The sportsbook has a limited number of markets for this match, but that’s the case with all bookies.
I watched Omegalil’s clash against HellRaisers yesterday and I was really impressed. The team barely lost by 2-1 against one of the favorites in the Omega League qualifier and looked stronger than the opponent for large periods of the match.
The excellent drafting in two of the three games resulted in a comfortable advantage after the laning phase. Unfortunately for Omegalil, the squad failed to translate that into wins, mostly because HellRaisers had better mechanics and found ways to farm later on.
That’s to be expected against a team of such caliber and a similar showing versus Voldemort should have a positive outcome for Omegalil.
Team Voldemort Analysis
The performance of Voldemort so far in the tournament has been as expected. The team was demolished by HellRaisers in the opening round, before beating EXTREMUM to reach the Decider match.
I can’t say I was impressed by that victory and Voldemort was miles behind HR, especially in the first game of the clash. You would often see the squad behind in cs early on and that makes the job really difficult. Based on what we’ve seen by Omegalil up to this point, that’s going to be a huge problem.
Omegalil vs. Team Voldemort Prediction and Free Betting Pick
I believe that Omegalil is by far the superior team when it comes to drafting and early game. Voldemort doesn’t have the means to stop the opponent, so it should be comfortable for the favorite. The price of -333 might seem short on the surface, but it represents good value, in my opinion.
