SK up against LDLC. Blue here although the website doesn’t say it in a game that SK could do with winning if they want to progress through this group. SK’s form has been a little shaky recently although they did manage to take a map off LG and even had a chance on Train, which I guess you could say is impressive.
LDLC.blue have been in pretty inconsistent form themselves since they picked up youns, who I do think is a decent player and even though he is still relatively inexperienced, I do think the better French sides have noticed him. Their last few games were a 16-10 loss against the onliners of CG, a very impressive win against Quest, and a loss to E-frag.
Coming into this game as it is a BO3, I honestly think the chances for LDLC to win this are small. They have not shown in recent games that they have enough skill to be able to take down a side a tier above them in a BO3. I can see them having 1 close map on their own one, and then losing the second one convincingly. The odds are not the best but the only logical bet here is to go LARGE on SK if you can afford it or SKIP if you don’t have a lot of skins. If the odds move past 90% then just SKIP this game.
My odds for this match: SK Gaming 70:30 LDLC
SK will be playing vs. LDLC.Blue here, the website won’t show LDLC.Blue because it’s bugged or something. Anyway, this is basically tier2 vs a low tier3 team so I don’t think there’s too much to say here. SK are on a roll and really had a decent showing at Dreamhack. Infact, they managed to get a map off Luminosity which was Mirage as well. The scoreline was 2-1 to Luminosity but this was just really impressive from SK. LDLC.Blue are nowhere to be seen, they are a decent team but have a hard time beating other tier3 teams. SK should be able to 2-0 this. I really can’t see them losing this.
I will personally be double maxing on this one. If you have a maxbet; feel free to follow. If you have no maxbet then just go high on SK when the odds are below 90%. If they get over 90% then make sure you skip!
My odds for this match: SK Gaming 80:20 LDLC
This match should be very easy for SK Gaming, they are playing insanely well right now and managed to take down a lot of great teams in the last few weeks, their most impressive result was definitely beating Astralis during Fragbite Masters Finals, other than that, SK Gaming also beat teams like Vexed, FlipSid3, FaZe, DenDD, PANTERS, ATN and more, they even had a very close best of three against Luminosity on Dreamhack Liepzig few days ago, great stuff from SK Gaming.
LDLC Blue is a mediocre tier 3 team with terrible results, they got absolutely demolished by CG in two matches, lost against E-Frag, BX3, SK Gaming, PENTA, beat Quest and struggled against EYES ON U but managed to take the series by barely winning the last map 16-14. LDLC Blue are just bad, nothing more to say about them, beating SK Gaming in a best of three is nearly impossible for them.
My odds for this match: SK Gaming 85:15 LDLC
Going to keep this one shorter since straight to the point + Little time left
Honestly as long as SKDC take this serious, they should come out on top here. I’ve seen LDLC.Blue play quite a few times, and I simply do not think they are quite ready to upset SK right here. LDLC.Blue can be decent for their tier, however I feel like SK is just that much better individually, and as a team that they should take this, especially considering this is a BO3. I am constantly seeing SK improve, they managed to nearly pull off an upset versus LG on LAN the other week, beat F3 2-1 and what not, overall I just feel they are better here. LDLC.Blue could perhaps sneak a map past SK, however I do not see much more than that happening. Not only are they less skilled but also just worse tactically. You compare both of the histories of these two, and nothing really goes in the way of LDLC.Blue, they aren’t even the best LDLC out there in my opinion. Overall, if the odds stay good I’ll max this as I just don’t see LDLC taking this.
Going to maxbet SK here as long as they are above 93%. It’s one of the bit more risky maxbets, so if you want to play it super conservative, skip. SK isn’t your go to tier 1 crusher team, however I reckon they should dispose of LDLC.Blue pretty easily here. Recommend maxing here if you got a set, if not, the chances of you getting a return are pretty slim, so I’d probably skip in your case.
My odds = 80:20 SK
My risk = Low
My bet = Max SK if below 93%
My advice = Max SK if got a set and they below 93%, otherwise skip.
