TSM has recently just placed as the runner up at ESL Dubai, falling to VP 2-3 a week and a half ago. Since then, they have attended Dreamhack Open London, where they defeated CW and G2 in the BO1 groups, Dignitas in the semi finals and then they reached the grand finals where they fell to EnvyUs, 0-2 with 13-16 scorelines on both of the maps (Dust 2 and Inferno). Both maps were pretty close, but they were just unable to close it out. After that LAN, they had 2 online games, where they won one against NiP and lost to Na’vi.
TSM has been looking fairly shaky, and their inability to close out a match (especially important ones like grand finals) is a quality which they need to get rid of. However, they did manage to get to the grand finals which is a good achievement in itself. TSM aren’t on the best form, but by all means, they won’t let a match go without a fight.
VP have not played a match since winning ESL Dubai, and it was NEO who said that the members of VP would take a break from CS, relax and enjoy their victory. There’s no real way of telling what form they are in at the moment but they did look fantastic in Dubai. In Dubai, they went undefeated winning against EnvyUs, Fnatic and then finally TSM in the finals.
VP are looking quite strong, but due to the lack of matches post-LAN, I can’t really say what form they’re on and if they have a good chance at winning this.
I’ll be placing a medium bet on TSM, this is a HIGH RISK match since it is against two T1 teams which are relatively equal in skill. Which VP will we see in this match? The VP that won Dubai or the VP which is unsteady and shaky? I think that TSM will want revenge from Dubai and they will play their best in this match, so this one should be a close one. This match is also a consolidation final, meaning that the loser will be eliminated, so for both teams, it is an important match.
My odds for this match: Team SoloMid 50:50 VP
VP just coming back from vacation after their Dubai lan victory, they havent played much at all, while TSM have had a busy scheduel. But VP have still been on a very good form for the last weeks, taking to account that they havent been playing and that they always seems to play bad after a big lan victory i will be going with a med bet on TSM.
My odds for this match: Team SoloMid 55:45 VP
