Team Secret Preview

Team Secret won the Gamers Without Borders 2020 after a 3-0 victory over Natus Vincere. Puppey has dominated the Dota 2 esports scene for several years now. They are ranked first in Dota2, and their recent performances have solidified why.

Ninjas in Pyjamas Preview

Ninjas in Pyjamas is a team that has slowly risen through the Dota 2 ranks. The former Chicken Fighters’ Dota 2 roster has upset several prominent Dota 2 teams and that is why Ninjas in Pyjamas picked up this roster. They are undefeated so far at the OGA DotaPIT online tournament securing wins over Virtus Pro, Team Liquid and Team Spirit.

Pick: Ninjas in Pyjamas Map 1 First Blood (+104 @ Pinnacle)

Team Secret has a mid-game focussed draft which leaves their early game exposed and vulnerable. Meanwhile, NiP has always had a strong early game, and even in games where they lose, they often have the early game advantage. This means we will almost surely see them secure first blood.
