Astralis dropped a map against North yesterday, I expected them to win based on their history on overpass, but unfortunately North were better that day. This time it shouldn’t be the case as they are facing a weaker team and the maps are different, or at least one of the maps as we have inferno first, followed up by nuke, so right off the bat I’m going to say that Astralis have a very high chance of taking this 2-0. North have never played a single match on inferno, while Astralis looked great on it so far, so that map should be a straight up win for Astralis, nuke is a bit harder as Heroic are really good on it and they also eliminated Virtus.pro from IEM Katowice groups with the match being played on nuke, that’s really impressive given that Virtus.pro is the best nuke team in the world, but then again, Astralis’ results on nuke look even better, so I’d give them a pretty solid advantage there as well.
So, Astralis will be my pick on both, they are kinda shaky right now because of device’s health situation, but I still believe in them and it’s way more likely for them to win 2-0 rather than drop a map so I’m going with Astralis on both, I’d pick inferno if I had to bet on one map though.
My odds for this match: Astralis 65:35 Heroic
Nuke and inferno is pretty random for the two maps here going into this series. Nuke is of course the map that Heroic dominated VP but it is also a really good map for astralis and although I do favour astralis for both maps here, I can still see it going 1-1 perhaps. The hard part is to pick who takes which map as we have not really seen enough inferno to make a judgement on anyone’s level on it just yet. The last time these two played on Nuke it was pretty close and we have not seen heroic on Inferno at all so it is impossible to bet on them there. I will go REALLY LOW on Heroic for both maps and hope they can take one. Although ast look good on Inferno, every game on it was really close.
My odds for this match: Astralis 60:40 Heroic
