The Favorites: Alliance And OG

The event sees two teams, Alliance and OG, come in as +250 favorites on Sportsbook. Both teams have a fair shot at taking the crown and it wouldn't be surprising to see them face off in the finals.

Both were last in action at the end of June at Beyond Epic, where they somewhat unexpectedly tied in 7-8th place in the 12 team event. Other than that, it’s been very back and forth for both. Alliance beat OG 2-0 at ESL One Birmingham in May, and OG got revenge with a 2-0 win just two weeks later at BLAST Bounty Hunt.

It’s difficult to separate the two, which explains why the odds are quite high, and it will all likely depend on their form at the event. Although OG may have the tiniest edge, mainly due to their famous OG magic, a term earned when they came out of nowhere to win two world championships and the signing of Dota 2 super-star Syed "SumaiL" Hassan at the start of the year.

Can Team Nigma shine again?

This year has been strange for Team Nigma. They parted ways with Team Liquid to form their own organization at the end of 2019 and got off to a flying start in 2020 with a first place at the Bukovel Minor. They then crashed out of DreamLeague 13, before shocking the Dota 2 scene with a win over Team Secret in February.

Nigma was then expected to rise to all new heights, but have found little success since. In fact, they looked incredibly lost until they managed a second place at Beyond Epic at the end of June.

Now, with renewed confidence and the trusty leadership of legendary captain Kuro "KuroKy" Salehi Takhasomi, they look to take home this event. The question is, will they continue their form or flounder once again?

Are VP.Prodigy a dark horse?

The academy team of, one of the best Dota 2 teams, has been stunning fans in 2020. They took the competitive scene by storm in May, claiming second place at the Pushka League while defeating the likes of Alliance and Ninjas in Pyjamas. The squad even outperformed the main team at the event, who finished in fourth.

VP.Prodigy then took it one step further, defeating the main roster 3-0 at Epic Prime League and winning the tournament. In their most recent event, ESL One Birmingham, they defeated OG, Nigma, and many other strong teams, before losing to Alliance and Secret, thus finishing third.

While their results are very impressive, they have definitely been over performing, considering their experience and skill. It’s difficult to see them keeping up such great performances and few expect them to win here. However, it is a possibility and there will definitely be some out there cheering, and maybe even wagering, on the underdogs here.
