2nd match between these two teams, this time on Cobblestone. Now Cobblestone feels like a scary map, recently neither team have really looked good on it. OG’s most recent match on Cobblestone was a 16-1 stomp by TempoStorm, OG were in a slump back then and just didn’t look good here. As of now, OG are out of the slump so I expect them to do better than 16-1.
Cloud9 are not so familair on this map. They did play it sometimes but it’s not necessarily a map they would pick in a BO3. They do know how to play it and basically, only knowing how to play it is enough when it comes to NA.
Cobblestone feels like a map that really can go either way. It’s really going to depend on Cloud9 overall, if they’re going full try mode then I expect Cloud9 to pick this one up. Cloud9’s best side is their CT side on this map whereas for OG it’s their T side. I think that Skadoodle can shut OG down with the awp and win them Cobblestone in an incredibly close scoreline. Let’s go with Cloud9 as of now.
My odds for this match: OpTic Gaming 49:51 Cloud9
2nd match between these two here on CSGL and this time around it is Cobblestone. Cobblestone is a map that OpTic will be more pleased about than Cache I feel. For OpTic Cobblestone is historically a really good map, they’ve had some good results on it, even going back to their Conquest days, nearly upset the old LG on it, upset the old Dig on it and overall, solid performances. Most recently they got demolished by Tempo on it, however lets put that past us. For Cloud9. a map that they can play, however not as strong as their Cache. Ahm once again, really close encounter here and could really go eitherway. My biggest problem with Cloud9 matches, well when I bet against them is that if Shroud or Ska, or even better both turn up for the game, they can so easily single handedly win the game it gets extremely annoying, so if you are betting against C9 here, you better pray that they do not turn up here. I mentioned in my previous analysis how the C9 guys did not have impressive hours, not at all except for Stew and Shroud, and while same can be said about OpTic, on average they do have slightly higher hours. Overall, could just come down to who is landing their shots here, BO1 so pistols and what not are crucial. 55:45 in favor of C9.
2-3% C9 if under 60%, otherwise 2-3% OpTic
My odds = 55-45 C9
My risk = High
My bet = 2-3% C9 if under 60%, otherwise 2-3% OpTic
my advice = Same as my bet
My odds for this match: OpTic Gaming 45:55 Cloud9
