Again, this is another very risky match to be betting on. However, this is a BO1 on Cache, which is a somewhat aim oriented map like Dust 2 so an upset here is not out of the picture – especially with a team like HR and Fnatic in their current state.
HR has been looking fairly well with the three new additions to the team. They have been performing better than they have with their old squad. For the most part, they have been performing well as a T2 team, defeating weaker opponents and then playing on par with teams like them. It’s hard to tell how they will do against a team remarkably better than them, but we will have to wait and see in this match. They have most recently tied against Mouz, 1-1 and also won 2-1 against Orgless, which was an insanely close match and HR nearly got upset.
Fnatic has been doing pretty poorly for a top team like them. They are falling to teams which rival them like TSM and EnvyUs, and although these matches had the BO1 format, losing 3-16 is very unacceptable and a little bit worrying. They still do win matches and they still are a good team compared to most, but compared to what they were before, they have been lacking.
Personally, I’ll be going low on HR. There is no doubt in my head that Fnatic is the better team here with the better teamwork, chemistry and the aim. It’s just that recently they haven’t been doing too well and all it takes is for an under performance from the team and HR can exploit that, and then take the match to a close one. I think Fnatic will win, but the odds at the moment aren’t too shabby for a low HR bet.
My odds for this match: HR 30:70 Fnatic
