Quincy Crew and Evil Geniuses will stage a battle of the titans in the fourth week of the North American Dota Pro Circuit Spring tour.
North America’s Dota 2 holy trinity of pro teams is still going strong in the second DPC season of 2022, but one perfect record will be scratched on April 9. Quincy Crew and Evil Geniuses both sport 4-0 match records going into this series, but only one can remain undefeated. This is one of the only three NA DPC matchups with somewhat even odds, so bets on either side can earn a hefty return.

Evil Geniuses NA DPC Spring betting analysis
With the formal return of Egor “Nightfall” Grigorenko to the offlane, Evil Geniuses is looking as good as ever in its regional league. The squad currently boasts an 8-1 game record with only a single game dropped to The Cut. A very close grand finals loss in the DPC Regional Finals to TSM hasn’t slowed it down one bit, but Quincy Crew still poses a solid threat.
Nightfall’s versatility doesn’t get in the way of a fantastic scoreline. The young offlaner has put up a 10.24 KDA spread across seven different heroes with no more than two matches on any one hero. That’s the third-highest spread of hero picks of any player in the league. The space-creator knows his efforts aren’t going to waste with a phenomenal 721 GPM on primary carry Artour “Arteezy” Babaev. Mid laner Abed Azel L. Yusop isn’t far behind Arteezy with 559 GPM. Even accounting for some weak laning stage performances, Evil Geniuses easily has the scariest set of cores in the NA DPC.
Quincy Crew NA DPC Spring betting analysis
Quincy Crew lived up to expectations last season with a first-place regular season finish, but finishing third in the playoffs after two 1-2 series losses must still sting. The players are taking it out on the competition, absolutely blasting past their lower-ranked opposing teams. Quincy Crew was expected to drop heavily in performance after the loss of positions three through five after TI10, but the last few months show that it’s still solidly a top-three team in the NA regional league.
Arteezy’s farm is impressive for EG, but there is one player in the entire league beats him. Yawar “YawaR” Hassan averages 724 GPM with 505.6 last hits for Quincy Crew, more than 100 last hits above the nearest competitor. YawaR’s return to the carry role fits his style like a glove. Support duo Milan “MiLAN” Kozomara and Remus “ponlo” Goh Zhi Xian are also filling big shoes. The hyper-active early game of the old roster is alive and well with lots of early smokes and three-man rotations.
Evil Geniuses vs Quincy Crew NA DPC Spring betting pick
These teams have only dueled twice in 2022, once last season and again at the NA Regional Finals. Evil Geniuses won those series 2-0 and 2-1 respectively, which is reflected in the latest odds. Winners.bet lists Evil Geniuses at 1.38 to Quincy Crew’s 2.80. Quincy Crew did win the last match of 2021 in the regular season, but a new patch has brought new momentum for the North American icons at EG.
Considering recent results and slightly better form, our betting pick for this match is Evil Geniuses over Quincy Crew. The conservative choice still leads to a solid payout, so this is definitely not one to skip for betting fans of Dota 2. Quincy Crew enthusiasts can consider a handicap bet, but even a single game win is far from guaranteed.
