Stats for the UK and Russia as they've appeared on Tipify
Disclaimer: The World Championships are a risky league to go big on or even bet on at all. The teams are composed of some of the best players from that country. The players come from all different teams and it is basically a mix of players. They most likely don’t practice many ‘real’ strats and sometimes it just comes down to which ever team has the better aim.
The UK team is TBA at the time of writing this, however there are some pretty decent UK players. Off the top of my head, weber, Neil and Whindanski (?). I can’t say too much since the lineup hasn’t been released yet, but we can only hope that the good UK players can be available to play this match.
Russia is the overdog here, and we all know why. The lineup consists of extremely good T1/2 player material. Seized and flamie from Na’vi, hooch from the CIS team dope, WorldEdit the AWPer from Flipsid3 and Dosia, the free agent (ex-HR) is playing in this match. All of these players are extremely talented.
To be honest here, Russia shouldn’t have too much of a problem taking this. They have the better aim and more experience than UK – simple as that. This is a BO1 though and that means anything could happen and if Russia starts losing momentum or get too cocky, they could let this one slip. Still, I don’t think that will happen and I will be betting on Russia if they stay at 75% or below.
My odds for this match: UK 25:75 Russia
