Team Aster vs. Sparking Arrow Gaming Preview & Prediction - Free Dota 2 Betting Picks 7/4
Team Aster and Sparking Arrow Gaming will face each other in the group stage of the OGA Dota PIT Season 2: China. The online tournament has eight teams competing for a $90,000 prize pool. The top team from each group advances to the semifinals of the event. The next two teams will move to the lower bracket, where a single loss would see them being eliminated from the tournament.
The two teams are playing in Group B of the event. Invictus Gaming has already won its three matches and is now qualified for the semifinals of the event. The remaining three teams (Team Aster, Sparking Arrow Gaming and Royal Never Give Up) will compete for the last two Group B slots in the playoffs.
Sparking Arrow Gaming recently won the BEYOND EPIC: China Dota 2 event after a 3-0 victory over Vici Gaming. The young roster brings a fresh look to the Chinese Dota 2 scene with innovative gameplay and sometimes, weird drafts. Aster often picks a lineup with a single strong carry and the rest of the team playing around this hero.
Aster has picked heroes like Medusa and Anti-Mage with alarming regularity in this tournament. This leaves their strategy open to interpretation by their opponents and a subsequent counter in the draft phase.
