A list of recent matches this team has played, green indicates a win and red a loss. Blue is a draw/cancelled
So Astralis just did the weirdest move they could have done, they benched karrigan and decided to use a noname 16 years old pugger with terrible stats, so basically they will be playing 4v5 today, and given that we have two separate matches on dust2 today, Gamers2 should have a pretty big advantage in both matches. Even though Gamers2 looked absolutely terrible lately, especially on ESL One New York where they went 0-3 and lost against two North American teams, they are still in my top5~ best teams in the world and well, beating Astralis 5v4 shouldn’t be an issue for them, especially on dust2 which is one of their best maps.
Honestly I would try a medium bet on Gamers2 on the first map, taking that risk is worth it in my opinion, then decide on the other, for now I’d suggest two medium bets though.
My odds for this match: Astralis 35:65 G2
2x on D2 here apparently, with astralis playing with a kid with terrible stats. What is there to say really. I think G2 should be favoured in both here and although they have looked really bad recently, they should be able to take down an astralis playing basically 4v5. I am slightly worried the lack of karrigan will make the ast boys play a lot better, but this is D2, a map that G2 are famed for. With ast playing with a stand-in the only logical thing you can do is go 2x LOW on G2 or SKIP. You cannot risk your money on a team in a shape like this.
My odds for this match: Astralis 45:55 G2
