Like right now, if I went to Joindota and looked up the Defense matchup of two teams it would show all the games played in succession. So let's say Team A plays Team B and wins 2-0. There would only be two VODs listed and that would let me know that whoever wins the first game wins the second.

Is there any way to avoid this?

go to their streaming site where they stream, then go to videos.

Depends on the tournament and who is hosting it.

JoinDOTA does a pretty bad job preventing spoilers... other tournaments make an effort to have spoiler-free VODs. It isn't as common as you'd like though.
No amount of planning will ever replace dumb luck.

The Defense games stream at 4 in the morning in my time zone. Other leagues are usually between 1 to 4 AM.

There are video archives in these sites that you can watch, I've never seen a result in the title there.

It's not about the result in the title, it's about the number of games spoiling the results. So let's say there is a best of 3 match, yet only two games are listed as being played by these teams. Logically, whoever wins the first must have won the second game therefore I will know the overall winner just by watching a single game.

Viewing them on Joindota @ YouTube lists each game separately (Game 1, Game 2 and Game 3 is it's 1-1 after the first two games). That leads to spoilers. What you linked to does not do this and is exactly what I was looking for. Ty.
