Team Secret vs. NiP Odds, Prediction, and Pick

The second round of the ESL One Los Angeles, EU and CIS is scheduled for Tuesday, April 7th. We have four matches today and this Team Secret vs. NiP betting preview is focused on the last of them.

I go through the latest odds available online first, before evaluating the chances of both sides. You can find my prediction and betting pick for the match between Team Secret and Ninjas in Pyjamas in the conclusion.

Team Secret vs. NiP Odds and Lines

  • Team Secret to win; -667
  • NiP to win; +375
  • Team Secret (-1.5); -182
  • NiP (+1.5); +120
  • Under 2.5; -223
  • Over 2.5; +140

As you can see from the odds offered by Betway, Team Secret is the overwhelming favorite in this match against NiP. That’s hardly a surprise, considering the long and successful history of the squad and the excellent form recently.

Team Secret Analysis

2020 started with a bang for Secret after the team won DreamLeague Season 13. That was followed by a comfortable qualifier for ESL One LA and a second place in the WePlay! Dota 2 Tug of War: Mad Moon.

The squad has been strong and consistent against pretty much every opponent. The performance at the WeSave! Charity Play at the end of March was a step down, but it’s not a huge competition and I wouldn’t draw too many conclusions.

The start of ESL One LA was excellent and Team Secret beat Team Liquid by 2-0. The confidence is flowing and I don’t see a reason why the squad should be worried about the upcoming clash against Ninjas in Pyjamas.

NiP Analysis

Ninjas in Pyjamas is having a turbulent year so far. The team has beaten many opponents that are just below the top-tier, but the best squads have been untouchable most of the time.

Part of the reason might be the changes in the roster at the start of 2020. It seems like NiP’s cohesion is not as good as it used to be in the best parts of the previous year.

On the bright side, the team did start ESL One Los Angeles with a hard-fought victory against Alliance. The problem is that Team Secret is on a completely different level.

Team Secret vs. NiP Prediction and Pick

  • Team Secret (-1.5); -182

The only viable prediction here is that Team Secret will win this match comfortably. The price for a straight victory over NiP is laughable, but the -1.5 map advantage is available for the price of -182 at Betway and the odds are similar in the other top esports betting sites.

That’s the best pick available for the upcoming match, in my opinion.
