Going to go G2 as favorites here once again, as they say ‘Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me’. Sure G2 got absolutely gob smacked by VP yesterday 16:1, however that was on Train and I think they have learned their mistake, and it was not VP doing anything outrageous I do not think, for me it was more G2 were just not landing their shots, getting out played tactically and just did not show up, bad days happen for everybody, however for VP they have been happening a whole bunch more. Just watched VP get demolished by Na’Vi and that seems more like the good old VP that we have seen the past two months or so. I think this will be a close battle, however one that G2 will want revenge in and as long as they are firing on all cylinders and do not decide to get 16:1’d again, they should come out on top in a bO3. 55-45 G2.
3% G2 under 60%, otherwise 3% VP
My odds = 55-45 G2
My risk = High
My bet = 3% G2 if under 60%, otherwise 3% VP
My advice = Same as my bet
My odds for this match: G2 55:45 VP
This is the deciding match and the winner will make it to playoffs, Virtus.pro steamrolled Gamers2 with a 16-1 score on train yesterday, the main reason for such a poor performance from Gamers2 was SmithZz not hitting his shots and it seems like there was a lot of misscommunication during this match, now it may seem like Virtus.pro should be favored in this one, but that’s not true.
Gamers2 is a better team and they have been doing way better than Virtus.pro in the recent weeks, don’t forget that VP were in the biggest slump of their career and recently did better, I still wouldn’t put my trust in them and definitely not gonna bet on the poles here, especially after their terrible performance against Na`Vi on cobble. Not gonna write anything about VP’s recent results since they lost almost all of their matches, but take a look at G2’s results, they are a little bit inconsistent as teams like CW managed to upset them, but G2 beat dignitas, SK Gaming, FlipSid3, FaZe, Virtus.pro, ENVYUS and more, these results are amazing and we shouldn’t forget about that.
Coming into this match Gamers2 are my favorites to win, I feel like they have a decent advantage with the map pool and were unlucky with the match on train, that’s still one of their best maps.
My odds for this match: G2 60:40 VP
This is a BO3 and this SHOULD favour G2. G2 did lose against VP 2 days ago but we have to keep in mind, it was VP’s best map and G2 literally gifted them rounds, G2 looked SO extremely bad, I haven’t seen a tier1.5 team ever play as bad as G2 did there. They kind of made up for it against Cloud9 on Dust2, easily their best map, they completely destroyed Cloud9 on it and finally looked like the G2 again.
VP did win against G2 and it did look like Virtus.Plow was back but not for long, yesterday they got destroyed by Navi on Cobblestone, probably a bit unlucky for VP as Mirage was also an option but it ended up on Cobblestone, I do think that Mirage could have gotten a bit more close but I don’t think VP were able to upset Navi on Mirage either, Navi are top2 in the world and the scoreline was pretty much expected.
I do think that G2 should be able to win this easily but everytime I predict G2, they completely ruin their own veto. Ex6tenz is the worst IGL when it comes to picking maps, they always lose matches just because Ex6tenz doesn’t know how to veto, sad but true. G2 can’t avoid Train here, that’s a fact. G2 want to ban Mirage so VP will pick Train, VP will ban Dust2 and I expect G2 to pick Overpass here, the 3rd map could be Cache / Inferno or Cobblestone and all of these maps are actually extremely scary for both teams, Inferno favours G2 a bit more but Cache and Cobblestone honestly feel like 50-50 maps. IMO the best thing to do here is to skip, both teams are incredibly inconsistent and I personally always lose a bet on teams such as VP and G2, they are unpredictable and can turn from gods to bots any minute. I’m going to suggest you to skip as well, again; I do think that G2 should win but I most definitely don’t like suggesting a bet on them, just skip this one IMO.
My odds for this match: G2 55:45 VP
