There is that saying that all tier 1 vs tier 1 matches are at best, 60-40, however eh, I disagree. Obviously the Swedish rivarly here, and if there is any team that knows how Fnatic play, I reckon that would be NiP since these guys have played together, speak the same language and what not, most are friends too I believe. NiP have apparently been really preparing for this event in particular recently, and it will be the first LAN they have attended with Pyth, so this will be interesting. NiP always seem to have some sort of magic about them on LAN’s, NiP Magic of course, however unsure if that can save them versus Fnatic. Both of these teams play a few times before this match, so it is a good idea to watch that and just see how things are going for both teams, don’t entirely decide your bet based on those performances, however adjust your odds a bit. Pyth so far has been pretty up and down, more down than up so to speak, he is yet to really make his ground in the team, and right now him and Friberg look like the weak links, however I can recall Friberg having a few good performances over the past few weeks online, so honestly, you could argue Pyth is their worst player, frag wise at least. Xizt has been stepping up a lot online from what I have seen, he might not be dropping 30 kills per game, however he has been getting a lot of impact frags, along with F0rest, and online NiP are not looking too bad at all, however you’ve got to consider that this is versus Fnatic in a BO1, things will be tougher here. Overall just favor Fnatic at around 65-35 here, it is a BO1, so be really careful.
5% Fnatic if under 70%, otherwise 2-3% NiP here.
My odds = 65-35 Fnatic
My risk = High
My bet = 5% Fnatic if under 70%, otherwise 2-3% NiP here.
My advice = Same as my bet
My odds for this match: Fnatic 65:35 NiP
A good old Fnatic vs NiP match, usually a really close match no matter the form of both teams. The problem here is, I still don’t know which maps NiP like playing on so I keep most maps as a questionmark. NiP lost to Mousesports on Mirage which felt like their best map past weeks. They got quite literally stomped. They had a really weak looking CT and T half, Pyth had a score of 6-26(?) and that’s just not good.
Fnatic had a comfortable win over Navi. Navi didn’t look good and Fnatic were just superior as usual. Not much to say about Fnatic, they are easily top1 in the world. BO1 between two teams who do have quite some history together, most matches have always been 50-50 but as of now, I don’t see how NiP can upset Fnatic here. NiP are playing a 4v5 every single round as Pyth just gets entryfragged every single time, Fnatic will easily take advantage of this and a 4v5 against Fnatic is just impossible. I feel like Fnatic will dominate this game but the history is the only thing that scares me. I highly suggest a skip here but if you want to bet, Fnatic are obviously more than likely to win here.
My odds for this match: Fnatic 65:35 NiP
Power match between the two Swedish sides here and it should be a good one. NiP against mouz looked really poor, they were all over the place after a good start and honestly pyth was awful. He died on short almost every single round, letting them run over the site and giving GTR almost no help at all. They did look better against Mongolz but that was a game I feel like everyone expected them to win anyway. Going up against fnatic will be a really hard game for them and I don’t feel like we have seen enough from NiP to make me believe they have what it takes to take down their rivals right now, and as such the only logical bet here is to go MED on fnatic to take this.
My odds for this match: Fnatic 70:30 NiP
