Feel like the odds for this game are pretty much spot on. I think that Penta are the better side overall, are more complete as a team, have more structure, better CT sides, and a really good player in loWel. Epsilon have a bunch of crazy aimers, who on their day can compete with anyone on this level, but they suffer from really poor CT sides. I have seen them lose 11-4 on CT mirage and still bring the map back, that is how good and bad this side can be. These two sides played in January, with slightly different rosters, and the game went to 3 maps, with 2 of them going to OT. I would put the real odds at around 60-40, and would suggest a LOW bet on whoever falls under those odds. This is a game I feel could go either way, so only a 2/3% bet would be advisable.

My odds for this match: Penta 60:40 Epsilon

Option 1Bet Penta if odds 60% or less

Small (3%)

high risk

Penta against Epsilon, both teams who are extremely inconsistent but do have a lot of potential to actually become really good, we have seen how Penta played their past matches and like I said many times, the addition of lowel is the biggest upgrade Penta ever made, he’s carrying every single game with 20-30 bombs for Penta and he’s just nuts. He is extremely consistent and when Tabsen and MikeS step up too, I think Penta can actually become the good ol’ Penta we all knew back then again with nex and spiidi.

Epsilon are a bit hmmhmm, they aren’t good but they also aren’t really bad. Back when they were CG, they had so much potential back on that lan where they played against LDLCWhite and Penta, they looked so strong and on point but right after that lan, they changed their line-up and ever since they did, this team hasn’t been the same. rezex was IMO the most important player but he’s playing for Alpha now, they have a full Swedish roster now but it can’t seem to impress me, they do have potential to become somewhat decent but I don’t think that this team will ever be able to actually compete with tier2 teams. They’re way too inconsistent for that.

This is going to be a BO3 for Hitbox, and I mentioned this earlier in the AGG vs. Ence match, I don’t like the prizepool. Penta are just like AGG one of those teams who tends to just not care about a league due to the prizepool. Penta surely don’t want to throw away their reputation as they actually look good right now but overall, I don’t really trust this one either. A low bet on Penta wouldn’t hurt when their odds are somewhat decent but overall I suggest a skip.

This one is a tough one to call, however they always are when Penta is involved. Penta is really hit or miss, they tend to do better versus teams they have no business beating, or at least historically have, and then when it comes to teams their level or weaker, they struggle. For Penta you are almost on your knees praying that your star players perform, otherwise GG WP was a fun game, but you’ve lost. This Hitbox Challenger Tournament is meh, don’t think Penta will try their best here, not at all and when that happens things get sour. Penta should be the favorites here, however not by too much as Epsilon are quite decent. Epsilon are the Swedish mix that have quite a lot of potential I feel. The Epsilon guys recently had a 2-1 loss, a very close one for that vs SK which is impressive, and like I said I think that with time they can keep improving and be a good team, even right now they have a very good shot at upsetting Penta. Overall, 60-40 game for me here, just play the odds with a low bet here.
