Thunder Predator vs. Infamous Pick – Friday, August 21st, 2020

| August 21, 2020 12:51 am PDT

The group stage of the ESL One Thailand: Americas has been a complete mess so far. We’ve seen a bunch of surprising results and predicting what’s going to happen looks like mission impossible. That won’t stop me from trying, though, and I have another match for you today.

Thunder Predator meets Infamous in a clash between two sides that have the same record so far, sitting at three wins and two defeats. The victory today is vital for both teams and it could open the door to a place in the knockouts, so the stakes are high.

I share my prediction for the match in this Thunder Predator vs. Infamous betting preview that also features the latest odds and a free betting pick.

Thunder Predator vs. Infamous Betting Odds

  • Thunder Predator to win; -667
  • Infamous to win; +391
  • Thunder Predator (-1.5); -143
  • Infamous (+1.5); +107
  • Over 2.5; +161
  • Under 2.5; -217

The Thunder Predator vs. Infamous odds you see here are offered by BetOnline. The bookmaker obviously sees TP as a huge favorite and that’s a bit of a surprise to me. I certainly understand why the team is expected to win, but the prices have gone too far, in my opinion.

Thunder Predator Analysis

We’ve seen both good and bad from Thunder Predator so far in the ESL One Thailand: Americas. The only easy match was against the punching bag of the competition Gorillaz-Pride. The other four fixtures of the teams all wend to game three, with TP winning against CR4ZY and business associates, but losing against Quincy Crew and Beastcoast.

The lack of consistency has been the biggest issue for Thunder Predator. When the team gets going, it looks unstoppable. And yet, there are too many games in which the opposite happens.

Part of the reason is the current condition of the Dota 2 competitive scene in the Americas. It seems like most sides in the region are roughly on the same level right now and most matches are unpredictable.

Infamous Analysis

I believe that Infamous is the pleasant surprise of the tournament so far. The team was doing ok before the previous round, but the 2-0 victory over 4 Zoomers was on another level. The underdog was around 20k gold and one lane behind in the first game but managed to come back and win.

The second game was even better and Infamous dominated from start to finish. It was an excellent performance that leaves the door to the knockouts of the competition open and certainly boosted the squad’s confidence.

Thunder Predator vs. Infamous Prediction and Pick

Considering the number of surprises in the ESL One Thailand: Americas and how many matches have gone to three games, I struggle to accept that Thunder Predator will close this one in two. In fact, I think we’re about to see a series with plenty of twists and turns.

The price of +161 for over 2.5 game looks insane to me and that’s my final Thunder Predator vs. Infamous betting pick.

  • Over 2.5; +161
