The International South America European Qualifier is one of many qualifiers that takes place before the Dota 2 The International, set to take place in October in Singapore. The path is the same for all the qualifiers, regardless of the region. The top 20 teams in Dota 2 will make it to The International. The 12 teams who sit on top of the 2022 Dota Pro Circuit standings will qualify for the tournament automatically.
That leaves eight spots for the rest of the sides in the world. South America is one of the most competitive regions, with little gap between the teams. The winner of the TI South America Qualifier will join the 19 other sides who’ll make it to The International, while the second and third side in the qualifier will get one more shot at qualifying with the last-chance qualifiers. This applies to every other regional qualifier.
Infamous (+175), Hokori (+255), Tempest (+600) and Wolf Team (+600) will be backing themselves to make it from South America, but one of the lesser favorites could always spring a surprise. Unlike many of the other qualifiers – take Western Europe as an example – the smaller teams can definitely stand up to some of the bigger sides in qualification.
Refamiliarize yourself with how to bet on Dota 2 ahead of The International, and let’s look at this qualifier.
Odds as of September 2 at Betway
Favorites To Win The TI South America Qualifier 2022
Ranked 37th in the world, the Peruvian side leads the TI South America Qualifier 2022 odds table and has got quite a lot of pedigree in the Internationals. They finished seventh back in 2019 and will be heading into this qualifier with the expectation of doing just that.
They have an overall win rate of 51 percent and would be the clear favorites if it weren’t for the roster changes last month. They have recently lost to Hokori, who also find themselves quite high on this table. All of this suggests that something’s not quite right at the moment for this side.
Hokori is in excellent form at the moment, winning their last four matches, including one against Infamous, the table toppers of the TI South America Qualifier 2022 title odds table. They have a win rate of 40 percent and have shown their pedigree in recent years by finishing in third place on the Dota Pro Circuit 2021-22 Tour 2.
They have been excellent in the month of August and momentum is huge when it comes to these big tournaments. They seem like the safest pick despite being second on the TI South America Qualifier 2022 title odds table.
Value Picks To Win The TI South America Qualifier 2022
Tempest is going to be the pick of a lot of people because of their recent form. They recorded wins against the likes of Hokori (twice), Thunder Awaken and SG Esports. They won’t fear anyone heading into this qualifier and the TI South America Qualifier 2022 odds on offer are excellent value, which will tempt many a bettor. They have the momentum and are exactly what value picks should be all about.
Wolf Team (+600)
Wolf Team is ranked 63rd in the world and has been in poor form recently, which will go against them as far as the TI South America Qualifier 2022 title odds are concerned. They did place second in the Dota Pro Circuit 2021-22 Tour 2, which shows their potential, but they remain a bit of an outside shot when compared to the other names on the list for the time being.
Betting Strategy For Winners Of The TI South America Qualifier 2022
All things being equal, Infamous would have probably been the easy pick here, but Hokori and Tempest have got form on their side and should be able to take that form into the TI South America Qualifier.
Both of them also provide excellent South America Qualifier odds compared to Infamous. Tempest has demonstrated the capability to beat the top sides as well, which is why there is absolutely no reason why bettors shouldn’t look at them. They have beaten some of the top sides in the region recently, have got the form and are excellent value. That’s a dream combo for betting regulars.
