A list of recent matches this team has played, green indicates a win and red a loss. Blue is a draw/cancelled
This is one of the most exciting NA matchups to watch, the matches between these two teams are always close and OpTic usually look great. This time it’s a bit more tricky as both matches will be played on train, it’s a great map for both teams which is probably why both picked it. Cloud9 are usually slightly better on train, but lately OpTic have been looking great on it, multiple wins against some of the best teams in the world such as Gamers2, overtime against SK Gaming and that 16-2 against Liquid which noone really expected, they’ve been looking very promising lately and might become NA’s best team anytime now, they keep getting better and better really fast.
Cloud9 usually win their matches on train, but recently lost a couple of matches against OpTic, Liquid and few others on it, but then again, they are definitely better than OpTic given that they won ESL Pro League Finals and looked great in general, I’d still give them an edge over OpTic here, but the odds are not good enough and I feel like OpTic could take it, so they are my pick here.
My odds for this match: Cloud9 52:48 OpTic Gaming
Really hard to call game to be honest. OpTic were the bogey team of C9 for a long time online but smashed them at LAN. Perhaps the environment got to the OpTic guys and they will be a lot better tonight in BO1 type match. Both maps are train here which is again stupid, but again a good map for both sides. C9 lost both vs SK yesterday and were honestly completely out played. If OpTic can show the level they can hit sometimes, then they have a chance here. It will largely depend on pistol rounds and for now at the current odds, I will go LOW on OpTic for the first map.
My odds for this match: Cloud9 50:50 OpTic Gaming
