There are some leagues in the world of eSports that move fast and are over before you know it. Oftentimes, it feels as though the regular season has only just begun before the playoffs begin. That is very much the case with the Epulze Global Dota 2 league based in Europe. They have games on Thursday and Friday before heading into the playoffs over the weekend. It really is all to play for in those final 2 days, as only 4 of the 8 teams in the league will still be alive once the playoffs begin. We are going to get things rolling by looking at the Dota 2 betting odds and the 4 games that are on the schedule for May 22, so let’s get right to it.
Epulze Global Dota 2 League | Europe May 22nd Matches
Astronauts Vs You Should Ran
This could very well prove to be the end of the road for You Should Ran, as another loss will almost certainly knock them out of playoff contention. They come into this one sporting a 1-3-1 record, proving that ties are simply not good enough win came against Kill Steal Kommando, who have already forfeited the season. Astronauts will definitely be part of the playoff picture, as they are in a comfortable spot in second with a 3-1-1 record. I like them to get the win here as they try to land the top seed in the final 2 days of the season.
KVP Vs syndereN Fan Club
KVP would love to lick up the #1 spot in the league, but they are having some trouble closing that out, as they have now tied each of their last 2 games to fall to 3-3-0 on the season. syndereN really need a win here if they want to be in the playoffs. They are sitting in the #5 spot at the moment, but they also have another game to play right after this one, so they can certainly help themselves on Friday. Unfortunately, I don’t see them getting anything out of this game.
Hehe United Vs syndereN Fan Club
If syndereN go out and lose their game to KVP earlier in the day, this may prove to be a meaningless game for them, which may well play into the hands of a hehe team on the brink of clinching one of the 4 playoff spots. There is still the possibility that even with an earlier loss, syndereN might relish playing the role of spoiler, but that is a bit of a chance to take when wagering. Hehe are 2-1-2 at the moment and sitting in the 4th and final playoff spot. They have only tied once, so I am taking that off the board and going with them to win.
No Bounty Hunter Vs Astronauts
It looked as though No Bounty Hunter might have been in danger of slipping out of the playoff hunt after a 2-0 loss to hehe, but they kept their hopes alive with an unexpected 1-1 tie against league leaders KVP in their last game. They are now 1-3-1 on the season and still in with a shot, but they will be up against an Astronauts team looking to steal the top spot. I think we might be looking at yet another draw here.
