Dota 2 The International: BOOM Esports vs. BetBoom Team Betting Analysis and Prediction

BOOM Esports and BetBoom Team will lock horns on Sunday, October 16, on the second day of Dota 2 The International 2022, for the second time ever.

As a match between two unfamiliar teams, this bout gives us a lot to think about, mainly how to approach BOOM Esports vs BetBoom betting.

Still, while there are many unanswered questions, it’s not difficult to find solid esports picks for this affair, especially if we consider that most early esports event predictions favor the underdogs.

But will the outsiders prevail on Saturday, or will BOOM Esports come out ahead?

Last Game Records

BOOM Esports and BetBoom Team had met just once before, way back in May when they clashed during ESL One Stockholm and parted ways with a 1-1 draw.

Unfortunately, this result hardly helps us make our esports picks, as we can’t use it as any guide to how the rematch will play out.

Teams’ Roster Changes

Both teams have made roster changes since their last affair, so if we want valuable information for our BOOM Esports vs BetBoom betting selection, we have to look elsewhere.

Even the teams’ form is irrelevant for this bout, as they’ve either been out of action for a whole month (BetBoom) or have played only lesser teams (BOOM Esports).

BOOM Esports vs. BetBoom Team Betting Analysis

BOOM Esports

There were a lot of expectations put on BOOM Esports on their ESL One Stockholm journey, but they couldn’t show up.

Even early into the group stage, it was evident that something was off – perhaps their late arrival to Sweden had something to do with it – and they played even worse in the playoffs.

BOOM’s Unfortunate Draft

Interestingly, many esports event predictions for ESL One Stockholm had BOOM Esports as one of the favorites to win it all, but they couldn’t show up and crashed out at the hands of OG. Admittedly, BOOM had an unfortunate draft, but they were overall very underwhelming.

Then at the PGL Arlington Major, BOOM Esports woke up and had a pretty fine group stage. They collected draws against Team Spirit, Tundra Esports, and Aster, but as soon as they qualified for the playoffs, BOOM got struck with another bad luck, as they got paired with PSG.LGD.

Elimination Match

The Chinese powerhouse eliminated BOOM Esports from the upper and sent them to the lower bracket, where BOOM defeated Team Liquid, only to lose to Entity in an elimination match.

From what we’ve seen from BOOM this season, they do well against weaker teams but don’t quite have enough talent to match the top dogs.

As a result, we can expect them to end The International 2022 as one of the middle-table teams. But if BOOM finds their momentum, they might cause some serious damage in the playoffs.

BetBoom Team

BetBoom Team are a team no one considers to be exceptionally strong, and as a result, they’re rarely a par to anyone’s esports picks. But they’re grinders and extremely tough to beat once they find some traction.

BetBoom’s Decision

That is mainly thanks to BetBoom’s decision to play as many games as possible this season, participating in DPC and many non-DPC online leagues.

All that helped them do well at the ESL One Stockholm Major, where BetBoom placed top eight, but they would eventually miss the PGL Arlington Major after failing to outperform NaVi, Outsiders, and Team Spirit in DPC Tour 3.

BetBoom’s Decision

Still, BetBom got their revenge by beating NaVi and Outsiders in the Eastern European Last Chance Qualifiers.

Over the season, BetBoom haven’t won anything spectacular, but they’ve shown promise on LAN. Granted, they’ve yet to attend a LAN event with Chinese teams.

BOOM Esports vs. BetBoom Team Betting Preview

BetBoom Team enter this bout as +298 underdogs to defeat BOOM Esports, who are priced at +191. Meanwhile, online esports betting sites have priced a draw at -110, suggesting that this affair might end in a stalemate.

That’s definitely an option, knowing that BetBoom Team and BOOM Esports played a 1-1 draw the last time they met.

Moreover, most of the early-The International matches tend to end in draws, as most teams enter the tournament rusty and a bit shaky.

BOOM Esports vs. BetBoom Team Betting Prediction

Betting on a draw seems like a wise choice since there isn’t much to suggest one team is better than the other.

However, we have to consider that BetBoom haven’t played a single official match since September, whereas BOOM Esports attended some lesser events in October.

This might not sound like a lot, but it’s important to consider which teams are rusty and which are warmed up and ready to play.

Who to Bet On?

BetBoom will have played a couple of games before they meet with BOOM Esports, but that’s not enough to justify betting on them.

BOOM Esports have proven to be a very efficient team, and while they have had their shaky moments this season, they’re known to always deliver against weaker squads.

At +191, it’s tough not to back BOOM Esports as our main BOOM Esports vs BetBoom betting pick.
