A list of recent matches this team has played, green indicates a win and red a loss. Blue is a draw/cancelled
This matchup is really hard to call and I’m not entirely sure whether it’s worth betting on it, both maps are really hard to call as we have overpass first, followed up by mirage, so basically two very good maps for both teams, not sure why would Astralis pick overpass since they sucked on that map lately, but then again, FaZe have a great map pool and it’s hard to pick a good map against them.
Astralis played overpass twice against dignitas yesterday and lost both, 2-16 on first and 12-16 on the second, also lost against SK Gaming and OpTic on ESL One New York, but they had karrigan back then, now their fragging power is better with gla1ve in the team. FaZe also looked shaky on overpass, they got wrecked by SK Gaming and NiP, managed to beat Cloud9 and Immortals though, also used to be very good on that map before they signed karrigan, they won multiple matches against teams like dignitas, Gamers2 and Virtus.pro.
I would slightly favor FaZe on overpass because of their previous results, the only two losses I’m worried about were against NiP and SK Gaming, so not that big of a deal as those two teams are great. FaZe is my pick here.
My odds for this match: Astralis 48:52 FaZe
Really feels like impossible to predict how good or bad the astralis guys are going to be right now. We have seen 6 games from them so far. The first 2, they were awful and sucked to be honest. They then looked really good against mouz, and then incredibly poor against dignitas. I guess from the games we have seen so far, we can accept they are good on Mirage, and nothing else. FaZe as well have been really up and down lately. They won the map I didn’t expect for them to win against Envy, and lost the one I thought they would win. The maps today are Overpass and Mirage. Hard to call games. FaZe are really strong on Mirage and actually think they are good on Overpass, but I don’t think they are as good as they think they are. Judging by what I have seen so far, I would go on FaZe to take Overpass and astralis to take Mirage, but FaZe could easily 2-0 here, or lose 2-0.
My odds for this match: Astralis 45:55 FaZe
