Data: Fnatic are definitely slacking a little bit more than they usually do. They haven’t been achieving quite the same results in the recent games that they have been used to in the past. They might be letting their title of the best team in the world slip a little but they are far from letting a team like HR take out Fnatic right now. I do think that it’s not impossible in a best of 1 but it’s pretty highly unlikely given that it’s still fnatic.

With a major coming up soon, it is evident that Fnatic are not giving it their all in their online matches. Don’t get me wrong, they still are a fantastic team and one of the best teams in the world, but they aren’t performing at their peak. Fnatic have been having a handful of BO1’s, with 3/4 resulting in a win. Their only loss was to Titan on Train, while Fnatic won against G2, HR and VP. Their last BO3 was against Piter, where Fnatic won 2-0 but had a considerable amount of rounds taken off them for a team like Piter.
HR is not attending Dreamhack like Fnatic, so online matches will just be normal for them. They have no LANs planned for them, but earlier today it was announced that HR will pull out of the $150,000 CEVO Finals LAN due to “medical reasons”. We aren’t sure who is ill and we don’t know how HR will play with an ill person or if they will have to get a stand in to play in some of their matches. Like Fnatic though, HR have undergone a bunch of BO1 matches. The ESL matches were played without s1mple due to his ESL ban, and only one FaceIt match was played with the full roster, with that being against G2 on Cache. HR lost, 10-16. In their ESL BO1’s, they crushed T2 teams their level (Penta and SK) and lost to considerably stronger teams like Dignitas, Fnatic and VP.
This match has an incredibly high risk for me, and I’ll be placing 1% of my inventory on HR in hopes for an upset. I still do think Fnatic will win, but I am banking on an upset and a good performance from HR, taking advantage of Fnatic preparing for the major and potentially throwing away a silly BO1.
EXTRA NOTES: FNATIC WILL BE PLAYING COBBLESTONE VS PENTA EARLIER ON, I HIGHLY ADVISE YOU CHECK THAT OUT AND BET AFTER IF YOU CAN.
My odds for this match: Fnatic 70:30 HR
