Galaxy Racer Esports and Team Blaze will face each other in the Moon Studio Asian League. The Moon Studio Asian League has twelve teams competing for a $45,000 prize pool. The tournament comprises teams from China and Southeast Asia competing against each other, in what could be a first of its kind tournament in recent Dota 2 history. The first-placed team receive $20,000 in prize money.
Galaxy Racer features a Malaysian Dota 2 roster, but has lost all three of its opening matches in the tournament so far. The team has played games against IG.Vitality, Cellular Gaming and 496 Gaming, but has lost all three matches with an 0-2 scoreline. Crucial to the team’s performance is its understanding of the current meta. Galaxy Racer comes into the match with a severe disadvantage due to the draft.
Team Blaze is just above Galaxy Racer with a 0-2-1 score. The team’s two ties have come against Cellular Gaming and BOOM Esports. The team lost to 496 Gaming with a 0-2 score. Blaze qualified for the tournament via the Chinese qualifiers. The team topped the Chinese qualifier defeating most of the other teams in the qualifiers with dominant scorelines.
Pick: Team Blaze Handicap -0.5 Games (-131 @ Pinnacle)
Galaxy Racer has not impressed me with their performance. The team’s lack of a strong advantage in the draft does not inspire confidence in their ability to take Blaze, whose players seem to have the momentum coming into this match. I am taking Blaze to win a -0.5 handicap bet against Galaxy Racer.
