The major spring and summer leagues in the world of eSports are long affairs where the prize money being offered is big. Nestled in among those leagues are smaller tournaments that may not offer much in the way of prize money, but who offer betting opportunities for those of you who love to dabble in eSports. One such event is the Epulze Global Dota 2 League, which is currently in the group stages. 8 teams take part in a single round robin that lasts a week before heading into the playoffs. The next set of games will be played on Wednesday, May 20 and we have a little bit of insight into all of them, so let’s jump right into the action so you can place your bets against their Dota 2 odds.
Note: No Bounty Hunter have already been awarded the win over Kill Steal Kommando, who have forfeited their spot.
Epulze Global Dota 2 League | Europe May 20th Matches
syndereN Fanclub Vs Astronauts
This is a big one for syndereN, as they are currently sitting just outside the playoffs with a 1-2-0 record, but they are in very tough here against an Astronauts team that is 3-0-1 and second in the standings. Both teams have dropped just 2 games in their best of 2 matches to this point, so it would not be a huge shock to see this one end in a tie. That said, I am leaning a little toward the Astronauts.
KVP vs No Bounty Hunter
One team that looks totally guaranteed to be in the playoffs in the league is KVP. They come into this one with 3 wins and a tie and have only dropped a single game in the 4 best of 2 series that they have played to this point. That could prove to be very bad news for No Bounty Hunter, as they really cannot afford to have any more losses at this stage of the game. No Bounty Hunter are down in 6th at 1-2-1 and will likely take that loss here.
You Should Ran Vs Let’s Have Fun
This is a big game for both teams, but perhaps more so for Let’s Have Fun. They are currently sitting second bottom with a 1-1-1 record, which means that they have games in hand to the teams sitting ahead of them. This will be the first of 2 games for them today, and you have to think that they need to win at least one. You Should Ran are in a playoff spot at the moment at 1-3-0, and I am looking at another tie for them in this one.
Let’s Have Fun Vs KVP
You get an idea of just how big the first game of the day is for Let’s have Fun when you see who they have here. Anything but a win in that first game and you have to think that their playoff hopes would be dead. KVP have torn through their games in rather convincing style to this point. Let’s have Fun would probably be content with a tie here, but I think that they are in trouble against the league leaders.
