A list of recent matches this team has played, green indicates a win and red a loss. Blue is a draw/cancelled
Three guys from Winterfox will be playing this game from Europe due to Visa issues. This is still a BO1, so there is a slight chance for an upset, but c9 should have enough to take down a sub par side, with 3 guys with 100+ ping. I don’t know if you have tried playing with pings that high, but is really hard to hit anything at long distance, and really gives you a massive disadvantage. This a risky bet, but I will be going LOW/MED on c9 and hoping for easy skins.
My odds for this match: Cloud9 70:30 WinterFox
Cloud9 are considered to be the best team in NA right now. They’ve been to the most LANs, they’ve had the best wins against European teams, etc. They really haven’t played any NA teams in a while from them just going to European LANs. Even without practicing as much and just traveling and playing, they should be the clear favorites.
Winterfox have a pretty good lineup, but not the best results lately. They went to the Dreamhack qualifier but unfortunately lost both BO3s against Renegades and Mouseports. They didn’t even take a map off of either won. Since getting back to the states they’ve done worse in online matches, with a loss to Follow Esports 6-16 on Train.
Considering Dust2, I don’t think this is really a great map for Cloud9. They used to be a really weak team on Dust2, and with the new lineup they’ve gotten better, but not enough. Winterfox only have one Dust2 match on history with this lineup, a loss in overtime to Mouz. This is not bad considering Mouz are great on dust2 with their strong awper ChrisJ, but it’s still a loss. A lot of times individual skill matters on dust2, which Cloud9 have a lot of.
Cloud9 should be winning this one, but a skip if fine. The odds are really high for a BO1, so you can do what you want. Good luck!
