This is the grand final of ELEAGUE Season 2 and I would never expect OpTic to make it this far, Astralis – maybe, but not OpTic. Astralis had to beat some of the best teams in the world in their way to the grand final, they beat NiP 2-1 and SK Gaming 2-0 in playoffs, looked absolutely insane, especially on train against SK Gaming where at one point they had a 10-0 or even 11-0 lead, they are really good with gla1ve.
OpTic had a pretty easy way here actually, they beat mousesports in the quarterfinal and FaZe in semis, sure beating both 2-0 is quite impressive and OpTic are very good right now, but it’s nowhere near what Astralis had to do to get here.
Astralis is definitely the better team here, although the maps are quite tricky, OpTic should be favored on cache and cobblestone, but we will most likely see a cobble ban from Astralis right away, while OpTic would remove mirage as they never play it. I’m not sure what map would Astralis go for, maybe overpass like they did against SK Gaming, but this map is pretty good for OpTic too, so I don’t really know, but we will definitely see a cache pick for OpTic, I don’t think they will take a risk with a train pick, cache would be a better choice. So, I think we would see overpass, cache and probably train as the last map, that should give Astralis a solid 60-40 advantage here and I think they will win this event, so my bet is on them, although OpTic have been looking great, wouldn’t surprise me if they upset the danish side here.
My odds for this match: Astralis 60:40 OpTic Gaming
