Looking at the map-odds CLG seem to be the heavy favourites going into this match, that’s mainly because Vexed had a really disappointing day yesterday whereas CLG’s day looked incredible. The players who will be the most important in this H2H match will be Tarik and Rallen, if either one of these players does not step up or not play like they did when they won a match (CLG against SK and Vexed against SK) then that team will most likely lose this BO3. Now, on CLG’s side the player who just has been insane this whole lan is Cutler, he stepped down from calling and has been doing insane ever since, he seems to be carrying CLG and that’s just hella impressive whereas jdm seems to have stepped down from topfragging and rather bottomfrags instead nowadays. Tarik also played the match of his life against SK yesterday and it was good to see the Tarik from early 2015 back. Vexed on the other hand are just a strange team. They can step up against any team but can also step down against any team. They are extremely unpredictable and really seem to rely on Rallen a lot to make plays. Oskarish seems to be a really bad addition so far and just got stomped into the ground against Splyce. The two things that scare me in this match are 1. Vexed are the underdog and make a lot of upsets as the underdog. 2. Vexed qualifying for a major is nothing new, I don’t know why or how but Vexed always somehow manage to qualify for a major where they just get stomped on. Yes, that scares me but I still think CLG will win and be the 3rd team in NA to qualify for MLG in Columbus after Splyce and Liquid. The odds on Lounge are 72-28 in favour of CLG and this is far from accurate, with these odds its safe to say to either drop an ICB on Vexed or simply skip it as CLG do not deserve these odds in this close BO3.
My odds for this match: CLG 60:40 Vexed
So this one is tricky to call. We don’t see EU vs NA like this often, so it is hard to like compare the level and standards of these matches. For me going into this CLG have to be the favorites here, however ever so slightly. Vexed are just really anticlimactic for me most of the time, and have been so far this LAN, except vs that SK performance, however not counting them out here. We saw CLG take down SK yesterday, in what was a really convincing first half, however the 2nd half they began to choke, however they eventually closed it out. It’s needed to mention that Tarik like had the game of his life, going 16-1 at one point is what I caught, and without his extreme carry, I do reckon they would have lost that, and we saw them cool down on the 2nd half. We saw Splyce defeat CLG 16:14, and then they also crushed Vexed, so that is something. I feel like the score vs Splyce is off, every clutch round seemed to go in the favor of Splyce, and Vexed just were not in that game. This should in theory be close, and just really depends which version of the teams we will see. This LAN so far has been notorious for the underdogs, will the trend continue? We’ll see. Eitherway, 60-40 for CLG here, just play the odds. Could really go either way here.
2-3% CLG if under 66%, otherwise 2-3% Vexed here which seems more likely at the moment.
My odds = 60-40 CLG
My risk = High
My bet = 2-3% CLG if under 66%, otherwise 2-3% Vexed
My advice = Same as my bet
My odds for this match: CLG 60:40 Vexed
