Odds When Posted: Envy 88% vs Dignitas 12%
Data: Envy and Dignitas are quite far apart in terms of actual skill when it comes to a game that both teams are serious about winning. While starladder is not necessarily a league where Envy will be pulling out all their magic, they certainly are able to take down Dignitas without much trouble, especially in a best of 3 setting. I think that Dignitas are able to take 1 map off Envy in the best case scenario but I wouldn’t even count on that.
Prediction: Envy 2:0
Advice: Medium/High Envy
My Bet: High $1200 Envy
My odds for this match: EnVyUs 90%:10% Dignitas
Honestly, EnvyUs should not lose this BO3. They were upset by Penta on Inferno yesterday, losing 12-16 but upsets do happen. It could be an early indicator that they could start a slump, but I don’t think that will happen so close to so many important events starting up soon. EnvyUs together are a very skilled unit and they are definitely a top 4 team, and a top 4 team like themselves can not allow themselves to lose to a T2 team in a BO3 regardless of the situation.
Dignitas are a T2 team, and if any T2 team was to turn into a T1 team, a lot of people would say that Dignitas is that team. However that was with the old Dignitas, and this Dignitas has the Swedish schneider playing in place of Nico, who was removed due to lack of performance. Since his signing, Dignitas has looked better than what they were showing at the end days with Nico on the team. The team still isn’t anywhere where they used to be months and months ago, but I do believe that time is needed to let the guys adjust.
The odds will more than likely end up 90%+ for EnvyUs, and personally I don’t like betting on games with odds like that unless I’m 100% sure that the overdog will win (quick example, Fnatic VS random T6 team from New Zealand). ICB is what I would recommend.
My odds for this match: EnVyUs 85:15 Dignitas
