Virtus.pro vs. Team Liquid Betting Preview for June 22nd, 2020

The group stage of BEYOND EPIC is going to end in a couple of days and the battle for the playoff sports is reaching a critical point. The only team that has a guaranteed place in the knockouts is Liquid after winning four in a row so far in the tournament.

The squad has a great chance to make that five against Virtus.pro today. The Russians have been below par in the past month or so, losing twice already in the BEYOND EPIC too.

My Virtus.pro vs. Team Liquid betting preview explores the latest odds available and the condition of each team, before moving on to my prediction and betting pick for the match.

  • Virtus.pro to win; +158
  • Team Liquid to win; -213
  • Virtus.pro (+1.5); -213
  • Team Liquid (-1.5); +156

Virtus.pro Analysis

Virtus.pro entered the tournament yesterday and is already on the brink of elimination after two heavy defeats against Alliance and FlyToMoon. The Russian side didn’t look competitive and failed to win even a single game.

The even bigger problem is that it’s hard to see how something could change. Virtus.pro has been struggling to compete against the best Dota 2 teams in the EU and CIS region for a month or so. On top of that, the last meeting with Liquid ended with a heavy defeat and the chances of another failure look high.

Team Liquid Analysis

A win today would guarantee Team Liquid the top spot in the group and I believe that’s enough of a motivation. The squad has dominated so far, winning all four matches and losing only two games in the process.

The 2-0 victories over Alliance and FlyToMoon were especially impressive and show that Liquid stays focused against the most dangerous opponents. One could say that Virtus.pro is not exactly in that group right now, but the team has enough talent and experience to keep Liquid alert, so I expect a strong performance today.

Virtus.pro vs. Team Liquid Free Betting Pick

The top-ranked Dota 2 betting sites all identity Team Liquid as the favorite today and I can certainly agree with that assessment. Virtus.pro is simply not part of the Dota 2 elite at the present moment and another defeat today makes a lot of sense.

The price of -213 for Liquid to simply win is decent enough but I think that the favorite could even cover the -1.5 handicap. The odds for that to happen are +156 and that’s my final pick here.

  • Team Liquid (-1.5); +156
