Alrighty so straight off the bat I will be recommending a skip, I think the reason is pretty straight forward. Obviously Astralis announced yesterday that they will be using Kjaerbye instead of CajunB, which is big news and while I think that it is a upgrade, I am not sure how quickly he can settle in and start performing, plus this is their first game, official game and Kjaerbye is a young guy, he might have nerves here and what not, and FaZe are not pushovers who can not punish you.We have not seen much from FaZe the past few weeks, however the last time we did see them play they seemed pretty good, Kioshima is definitely bringing a lot to that team. Also, FaZe seems to be grinding too, they have about 80~ hours average on CSGO the past two weeks while Astralis have like 40. Overall, I do expect Astralis to win, however will be a close battle, can not count out FaZe in these circumstances. I will be skipping to see how Astralis play. 65-35 Astralis

Looking at the maps here, I think they are good for FaZe going into this. They are comfortable on all 3, and we have seen astralis struggle on Cache and D2 before, even if they are good on them and like the maps. Karrigan said on his twitter they are changing their player roles a bit and kjaerbye will play as he did in Dignitas, and he personally will be moving to another role. This makes me worried for their T side, even if they do have strong fraggers, the balance and direction and organisation, is not going to be on point this game. I still favour astralis, but for sure with these 3 maps, astralis has a chance. Under 30-35%, I feel that FaZe is a good underdog bet.
My odds for this match: Astralis 70:30 FaZe
