This match is very similar to Na’Vi vs Liquid, so the stuff I wrote there should apply here as well. What I said was basically that Liquid are not in the best shape right now and they looked straight up bad in the recent matches, got 2-0’d by Luminosity, lost multiple maps against teams like TSM, Selfless, CLG and many others, they are just playing bad and Hiko isn’t showing up either which is their biggest issue at the moment.
Astralis may not be as good as Na’Vi, so this one is a bit more risky, but once again we have a situation where Astralis have a better map pool and the veto process should favor them here, all they have to do is just remove cache, cobblestone and either train or nuke, the rest should be pretty good for Astralis, especially overpass, dust2 and mirage as these three are their best maps right now. I think dust2 or train is what we will most likely see here, I’m quite affraid that Astralis won’t remove train and that would give Liquid a very good chance of upsetting, but that’s like one of two maps that Liquid could actually win, the rest should favor Astralis. That being said, I’m going with the favorites again, Astralis in this case. I’m not as confident as with my bet on Na’Vi over Liquid, but Astralis should be the favorites for sure.
My odds for this match: Astralis 65:35 Liquid
Astralis should by this point have a win under their belt, or at least a close game against G2 to have warmed up on. Liquid will most likely have a loss and will be really wanting to take this game. I don’t reallllly feel that confident in them winning this one. Their map pool is not the best against ast and will most likely end up on something like d2 or Train. Now, d2 as we all know is one of the most random maps and Liquid could for sure cause an upset on this map. I do have to favour astralis on both of these maps, and for now, I will call a LOW on astralis, but as with the others, keep an eye out for updates.
My odds for this match: Astralis 60:40 Liquid
