The Kiev major is only a few weeks behind us, and the results will be heavily affecting the odds for Manila Masters. With a summer filled to the brim with Dota 2 tournaments, many experts expect inflated odds; we’ve seen this at previous tournaments this year like Dotapit S5 and Starladder. For example, OG’s odds are at 2.75 while their biggest threat EG are sitting at stunning 4.33.
The favorites OG are of course expected to win the tournament, which isn’t unexpected if you look at their previous results. It only took OG 2 years to cement themselves as the greatest team in Dota 2 history. An upset for this historical team is entirely possible if you analyze previous tournaments that weren’t majors — where they’ve frequently lost in the finals.
Since the tournament is played in Asia, there are plenty of Asian teams participating. Among the Asian teams, we find both Invictus Gaming and Newbee who have proved to be a threat to the Western teams. There’s quite a big gap in skill among the two teams — bet365 currently lists Newbee at 3.75 odds and Newbee at an astounding 13.00.
Of course, it’s not only top teams attending as Team NP, Team Faceless and newcomers Clutch Gamers. Clutch Gamers managed to qualify through the Philippines qualifier; We’ve never seen them play internationally which is why their odds are currently 41.00. Team NP has had a weak start to the year and failed several opportunities to qualify for more prestigious tournaments.
Team Faceless is the most compelling team attending Manila Masters as they recently reached the quarterfinals during the Boston major. Faceless were sent home by champions OG but did manage to win one of the three games. With impressive results like that, one would expect Faceless to have lower odds. Right now their odds are at 34.00(!) with only Clutch Gamers having higher odds. Faceless have a realistic chance to win this tournament, and if you bet on them, you’ll get an enormous payout.[bonustable num=1 tag=’bet365′ ]
