A list of recent matches this team has played, green indicates a win and red a loss. Blue is a draw/cancelled
The battle of 2 teams that struggle on Cobblestone, could make for an interesting match. HR have that COULD WIN AGAINST ANYONE factor, and VP are famous for losing online matches where they are the heavy overdog.
HR have 2 losses so far and will be looking to get a win under their belt after the disappointment at the major. VP have yet to play a game, so will also be looking to start with a win. One thing to remember is s1mple won’t be playing this game, due to still being banned on ESL. They recently added hooch to the ESL roster, and it will most likely be him or fix who plays tonight.
You would have to say that makes HR weaker, but with the current odds being so high on VP for a BO1, it makes betting on this game risky. Not to mention, there is an unwritten rule with betting, that you never bet on VP online when they have high odds, it often ends in disaster.
All of VP currently have around 20-30 hours the past 2 weeks, which shows they are not THAT active at the moment. They are just playing tournaments and that’s it. It will be difficult for them to show anything new on Cobble, so what we saw before is probably what we will see again. HR all have 80-100 hours, which shows they are playing a LOT.
In normal circumstances and s1mple playing, I would 100% bet on HR for this game, as the hours, odds, VP back from LAN, all point to an upset. With HR having a stand-in, it makes me nervous betting. I will probably still ICB on HR, but unless you got a lot of bank roll, I suggest you guys SKIP this one.
My odds for this match: HR 35:65 VP
