The biggest post-TI DotA 2 tournament is about to start on December 3rd and a lot of people are keeping their eyes on their favorite teams. The tournament will undoubtedly feature some top quality matches with professional players showing their skills on the stage. Before the start of the Boston Major, we have analyzed and predicted the top four teams at tournament that have the potential to lift the title.
Here are those four teams in the order of their performance and our analysis.
Placing Virtus.Pro as the No.1 team in the upcoming Boston Major would have been questionable before a few weeks ago. But the team has answered all the questions after a solid performance in the Summit 6. Living up to the reputation of CIS-region teams, Virtus.Pro plays in an aggressive manner, with a clean and crisp finesse to their execution. Featuring perfect team fights and well-timed rotations, this team has shown a very disciplined and team-oriented play. Virtus.Pro came out of the blue after underperforming for so long and are now making tough competition for others. The team will be under a final analysis from the top coaches and analysts of the Boston Major. Although Virtus.Pro is a qualifier team, recently they have proven their mettle against the top notch teams in the industry. When it comes to eSports betting, Virtus.Pro has the second best odds of 4.50 on Bet365 as well as Betway.
Having lifted The International 2016 title, Wings Gaming is still one of the few sides whose roster has not changed after the TI fall shuffle period. When consistency and discipline are taken into perspective, no one can reach the level of Wings Gaming. In the months after The International 2016, it looks like the side has stopped roaring by falling to Evil Geniuses at The Summit 6 to finish third. Although they lost, the team is a mountain to come across, and you never know what this side is capable of until you play against it. On one of the top eSports bookmakers, Bet365, the current decimal odds for Wings Gaming are 3.65, which means a lot of people are considering Wings Gaming as the next champion of Boston Major.
After underperforming at The International 2016, Newbee has come roaring back. Since then, in interregional tournaments they have shown solid performances. Although they haven’t had much game time on International LAN in the past weeks, no one can undermine the talent of the side and the form they showed in their respective Chinese region. Undefeated streaks are not uncommon when this team competes against other Chinese Teams and much can be attributed to the captaincy of Hu “Kaka” Liangzhi, who has shown time and time again that his tactics can’t be questioned. As far as eSports betting comes into play, a lot of people have placed their bets on Newbee. With the current odds of 5.50 and 5.25 on Bet365 and Betway, respectively, Newbee will surely be looking to grab the title.
The green team has displayed some questionable and shaky performances in the past but has stabilized and also synergized their style of play, as exhibited at The Summit 6. The new sensational mid-laner Anathan “ana” Pham was under the microscope and had 9k MMR worth of shoes to fill, while the new signee Gustav “s4” Magnusson had his offlane game to improve on. Both have responded well under pressure and look well-adapted to their respective roles, which could only solidify the side and could very well be the mixture the team needs to get back to its championship winning ways. For the time being, they are no doubt a top side but rank just outside of the top three. On popular eSports bookmakers, people are placing their bets on OG, and currently, they have odds of 7.50 and 8.00 on Bet365 and Betway, respectively.
The dark horse of the Boston Major could very well be Digital Chaos. Although winning isn’t easy for them in minors as well as the qualifiers, when it comes to Grand Finals, they are a force to be reckoned with. Currently, very few people are considering them as a potential champion of the Boston Major with the current odds of 26.00 and 21.00 on Bet365 and Betway, respectively. But we all know what Digital Chaos is capable of, especially after their exceptional performance on the stage of The International 2016.
