Evil Geniuses hope to upset all Dota 2 betting odds by winning the Kuala Lumpur Major 2018. Online sportsbooks don’t believe in them, but all they need is to believe in themselves. Should you bet on Evil Geniuses?

The group stage matches of the Kuala Lumpur Major 2018 tournament are about to kick off in the next couple of days. The first match is played on 9 November. The final will be held on18 November at Axiata Arena in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The 16 participating teams are competing for the $1,000,000 prize pool.

One of the teams, the Tigers, qualified as they are the DreamLeague S10 winners, while the other 15 qualified through regional qualifiers. Europe, China and North America gave three-three spots. Each of the South American, Southeast Asian and the CIS regions give 2-2 teams to the tournament. That’s how the 16 teams were decided.

1. Virtus.pro or Team Secret? Dota 2 betting odds are ambiguous

Virtus.pro and Team Secret are the biggest favourites to win Kuala Lumpur Major 2018. However, two different online sportsbooks in Singapore are of a different opinion about those two: while Vbet Sportsbook marked Team Secret as the strongest team in the tournament, Unibet Sportsbook believes that Virtus.pro are slightly better.

Virtus.pro

4.50 / 5.00

Team Secret

5.00 / 4.50

PSG.LGD

5.50

Evil Geniuses & ViCi Gaming

7.00

Of course the difference is not overly significant. Vbet Sportsbook gave 4.50 odds for Team Secret to win, while the odds for Virtus.pro to win Kuala Lumpur Major 2018 are 5.00. On Unibet, it’s exactly the other way around: 4.50 on Virtus.pro and 5.00 on Team Secret.

2. Evil Geniuses hope to beat the odds…

Evil Geniuses are a great brand within the eSports industry and not only because of the genius name they have. They are also one of the very first professional eSports teams which gives them extra prestige. However, according to the Dota 2 betting odds at online sports betting in Singapore, they are only the 4-5th favourites to win.

Both Unibet and Vbet agrees about the chances of the Evil Geniuses. Both online sportsbooks rated the chances of their victory at 7.00. Exactly the same odds as ViCi Gaming has. The EG finished 3th at The International 2018, win the North American Qualifiers and won the DOTA Summit 9 as well. They seek to add another honour to their list this year and they aim to start doing so in Kuala Lumpur.

3. Check the Dota 2 betting odds on PSG to win!

PSG are definitely one of the major sources of main stories of online sportsbook news in Singapore, but they are mostly about football. Not many know that the Qatari franchise saw a potential income generator in the eSports universe as well, but that’s a fact. PSG entered a partnership with LGD and they compete together under the name of PSG.LGD.

They have had quite impressive successes in the past. Their second spot at The International 2018 is definitely something worth mentioning. They qualified on the 1st spot from the China region. With new players like Mbappé and Neymar xNova and fy, their 5.50 odds seem surprisingly high.

While Dota 2 betting odds suggest you shouldn’t, GamingZion believes you might want to bet on PSG.LGD to win Kuala Lumpur Major 2018. They are performing better and better each time. This might be about time for the final step.
