Prediction: Aster.Aries vs. Royal Never Give Up in Chinese Qualifiers for The International 10
Royal Never Give Up showed us their strongest strategies, they have Dstones with signature Invoker, and they also showed Arc Warden from GodKing, the game with this character against Elephant took 107 minutes. Aster.Aries has a Puck that they highly rate, but it only pays off with weaker teams.
Bookmakers give odds of 1.21 for Royal Never Give Up and 4.24 for Aster.Aries. Quotes are very low and therefore worth catching in LIVE mode. I have no doubts that RNG will win, I even believe in 2: 0 with 1.762 odds.
