TNC Pro Shortens to 18-1 Odds From 25-1 to Win DOTA 2 The International

The main occasion of The International 2019 is just a week off and odd-makers have given TNC Predator a better chance at winning. Looking through the remainder of the DOTA 2 International chances, Team Secret’s chances improved even further despite already being known as the favorites.
*Odds taken 09/08/19
Back on July 5th, TNC Predator had 25-1 chances to win The International. Now suddenly a week before the championship, they’ve shortened to 18-1. The Southeast Asian group has not played in a tournament since the EPICENTER Major at the end of June where they finished fourth. There aren’t any new results to justify a change in likelihood therefore TNC Predator has to be getting more respect to their recent results. At the EPICENTER Major, TNC Predator completed over the likes of Team Secret, OG Esports, PSG.LGD and Ninjas In Pyjamas (NIP): all teams which had greater chances than Vici on July 5th. Is how that their win over the Ninjas In Pyjamas at the group phase. Before the swap, NIP had better odds to win regardless of the weight-loss.
The championship before EPICENTER has been ESL One Birmingham where TNC Predator ended in fifth. They have been second in Group A with a 6-4 record which included the following 2-0 within the Ninjas. It looks like TNC Predator were eventually given credit for their recent domination of NIP. At +1800, they’re still big underdogs to a few of the highest DOTA2 teams, but they do pose better value than groups like OG.
As of the recent odds update, Team Secret is currently more heavily favored. It been this past year. They’ve got first place finishes in The Chongqing Major, ESL One Katowice, the MDL Disneyland Paris Major, also the list goes on.
They definitely frustrated in the EPICENTER Major in which they finished , but it’d be shocking if they didn’t bounce back out of it. On occasion a loss is essential to aid a team get even better.
Alongside Team Secret in the odds is Vici Gaming. Vici presents better value at 4-1 and they’re coming off a win at the EPICENTER Major where Secret popped out early. It is not their first tournament win. A lot of individuals overlook their win at DreamLeague Season 11 where they knocked Team Secret into the losers bracket and conquer from the grand finals.
Vici is dangerous, and when Team Secret is reeling then Vici will probably be in form and ready to capitalize.
Picks: Vici Gaming (+400)
Let’s keep it civil and have fun.
