This should definitely be closer than 70-30, Cloud9 don’t really deserve those odds. They’ve only played one online match since getting back from the Crown invitational, and it was a pretty easy win against Complexity on Dust2. However Cloud9 didn’t look so good against Immunity. It was a mix of Immunity playing amazing, and Cloud9 looking a little bit weak. Immunity took Cache 16-12, but Cloud9 came back to take Dust2 16-7. The final map was Overpass, which Luminosity and Cloud9 will be playing on today. Cloud9 looked very bad on this map, and they lost 3-16. Cloud9 started CT side, and only got three rounds. They looked very weak, and they really need to work on their Overpass play.
Luminosity play Overpass on occasion, and they’re pretty much hit or miss. Their last two times playing Overpass weren’t very good, with a loss against Liquid and Complexity.For wins they beat Method 16-1, and just over a month ago they took Liquid into overtime and won it. Luminosity played Cloud9 on Overpass before, but it was over four months ago. Luminosity won easily, but take that with a grain of salt.
LG played Cloud9 on Train just under two weeks ago, and they lost 6-16. Train is definitely not one of LG’s stronger maps, but it isn’t really for Cloud9 either. I can only see Luminosity winning this if they can get the entry frags and shut down Skadoodle’s awp. If Cloud9 play this map the same way they played Immunity on it, they should lose. Cloud9 should be favored, but 70% is way too much. Just go for a small bet on Luminosity. Good luck!
My odds for this match: Cloud9 58:42 Luminosity
Should be a good game between two of the best teams in NA. Cloud9 are only back recently from the LAN in Australia and have not played that much. LG have a lot more hours on CS and have been practising hard as a team to improve and get out of the slump they were in for a bit. Pistol rounds will be important, and if LG can take them and win the rounds after, they have a chance here. The real odds are around 60-40, and going LOW on LG could be a good bet here.
My odds for this match: Cloud9 60:40 Luminosity
