Okay, it really took me a while to decide whether I want to risk on the underdog or just skip, but seeing the current odds I just can’t miss such a good opportunity.
dignitas may be the underdogs here but they are capable of beating any team at this point, we’ve seen them struggle against tier 2 teams lately but most of these teams were really good and I can understand that, but don’t forget how well dignitas played against some of the best teams in the world not too long ago, the best even for them was Dreamhack Malmo where they beat NiP 16-2 and Astralis 16-9, they also beat ENVYUS and Virtus.pro in online matches and that’s pretty good.
Astralis have surprisingly low amount of hours played in the last two weeks and I’m affraid they took a break or something, that could be true since they have a great record in ECS (1st place | 5-1), so they don’t really have to prepare for anything right now, Astralis also played quite bad recently, they lost against Luminosity, NiP and even Optic, not the best results.
I’m pretty sure dignitas can take this, I still favor Astralis since they are better and more experienced, however the current odds are ridiculous and betting on Astralis makes no sense here, either skip or place a small bet on dignitas, they can definitely take this.
My odds for this match: Astralis 60:40 Dignitas
Ah the good old Danish rivalry here once again, well, one that Astralis seemingly win every damn time, however the most recent of games these two played against eachother Dignitas actually won! You know what they say, first time is always the hardest. Dig are looking pretty strong right now, nothing ‘WOW’ however they are doing what they are supposed to be doing, while the same can not be said about Astralis who are not looking awful, however not to the expectations I would set them at least. Neither team has high hours on steam, however Astralis does have like 30-35 average while the Dig guys have 55ish average, and 30-35 is quite low to be honest, I mean I am not a pro player and have been just DM’ing daily and have the same amount. I feel like this is a game where Dig can fight, however with them just coming back from winning the European Minor, you have to wonder how jet lagged and overall how much they celebrated and how much their minds will be in on this game basically, it is a Danish rivalry and I am sure Dig want to get as many 1 ups against the big guns as possible, so they should try here, Overall, 65-35 in favor of Astralis.
5% Astralis under 72%, otherwise 2% Dig
My odds = 65-35 Astralis
My risk = High
My bet = 5% Astralis under 72%, otherwise 2% Dig
My advice = Same as my bet
My odds for this match: Astralis 65:35 Dignitas
Don’t really believe Dig will take this game but astralis have hardly looked good lately to be honest. They were incredibly poor against OpTic, and honestly device is the only player right now who is not embarrassing himself with how he is playing. They are in some what of a slump. The only thing is, Dignitas just doesn’t really seem to beat them. They may have taken them in a BO1, but an important BO3 is a lot different. Astralis dominated them before this and although astralis should have beaten LG, if they are not on point here, dig for sure have a chance. I don’t feel that confident in dig, so if you choose to bet here, just go really LOW if you want to afford a risk, otherwise SKIP.
My odds for this match: Astralis 70:30 Dignitas
