The group stage of the EU DPC Upper Division is coming to the conclusion. Now, as the teams clearly know what they are fighting for, we have a clear picture of the upcoming battles. So, on Wednesday, February 17th, the 2nd-placed team will meet the 7th-placed. But these numbers tell us nothing as the difference is only one victory.
Alliance has played a good match against Secret. As predicted, the team was close to defeating Secret but eventually lost with a score of 2:1. This was only the second [A] loss at the group stage after three back-to-back victories over Tundra, High Coast, and OG. In general, Alliance has won 6/10 latest matches at the top Dota 2 level.
Vikin.gg currently occupies 7th position with 2-3 records. However, two victories in the upcoming matches will guarantee Vikings a much-desired place in top-6. For this to happen, Vikings should show the same performance as in matches with Nigma and OG (both won 2:1). However, in the 10 latest matches, Vikin.gg won only 5 times.
The bookies favor Alliance as a much more stable team. Nevertheless, both [A] and Vikin.gg played Over 2.5 maps in 2/3 latest matches at DPC EU Upper Div. Providing the odds are great, this will be my pick – Total Maps Played – Over 2.5 with BUFF.bet odds 2.28.
