Who to bet on at ESL One Genting 2017
As we mentioned ESL, One Genting provides us with one of the most interesting mixes of teams for a tournament this season. We’ve gotten some help from our friends at Betway and bet365.
Betway and bet365 have provided betting on eSport for a long time and have a deep understanding of it. They take it as seriously as any other sport and ensure you have the greatest odds and latest matches ready for betting.
The odds listed are for the winner of the entire tournament.
This CIS team has been impressing us lately with their win at The Summit 6 and 5-8th placement at The Boston Major 2016. A lot of the teams that have been giving VP trouble will not be attending this tournament, increasing their chances to lift the trophy.
You probably already know of this Chinese Dota 2 team since they won The International 6. Since then we’ve seen nothing but mediocrity from the once all-time greats of China. Wings should still be able to put up a fight against most of the teams attending Genting.
After their impressive TI6 run, DC have been busy showing that it wasn’t just a fluke. With a 5-6th place at The Summit 6 and a 3-4th one at The Boston Major 2016 they may just have proven us wrong.
Team NP is a team very similar to DC right now, and it’s unsure where they will place. They most definitely have the potential to defeat every single team at Genting, especially on the new patch. We look forward to seeing how they will perform.
A new patch
Dota 2 receives patches all the time which inevitably shift the balance among the teams. The latest one is more than just a patch, however. The latest patch goes under the number 7.00 indicating major changes.
We strongly suggest that you read up on a lot of new features as they have altered the gameplay significantly.
A team that was mediocre on the previous patch could very well challenge the best of teams now and vice versa.
