We haven’t seen this matchup in a long time, in fact the last time these two teams faced each other was in September 2016, so almost half a year ago, back then Cloud9 were a bit better than they are right now, but it’s fine, they are still capable of beating anyone, it just doesn’t happen as often anymore. The good thing about this match is the fact that Virtus.pro pretty much never lose to North American teams, I can’t even remember the last time it happened and it doesn’t seem like Cloud9 will beat them here either, Virtus.pro have been looking way better lately. I’d say this match should be somewhere between 60-40 and 65-35 for Virtus.pro, I don’t think Cloud9 will beat them with the way they’ve been playing lately, shroud is playing like an absolute bot, n0thing is not as consistent as he used to be and autimatic kinda dropped off, he’s not as flashy as he was in his first few months with Cloud9, luckily for them Skadoodle is kinda coming back as he played really well in the recent matches, either way, Cloud9 are way too inconsistent for me to trust them at the moment.
This match should be a smooth win for Virtus.pro, they have few matches before this one so we’ll get to see them before betting here, but I believe they will win this match as Cloud9 is one of the weakest opponents they will face on this event.
My odds for this match: Cloud9 37:63 VP
VP aka the NA killer, up against C9 here. VP did not have the best first game but it was not something that surprised me. Like I said before, Navi always beats them on Train. Going into this game, C9 have big problems. I fail to see a map they can really beat VP on. We might even see it ending up on something like Nuke again. We for sure won’t see Cache, I am doubtful for Inferno. Overpass I just don’t see it. This then leaves Nuke, Cobble, Train and Mirage. Out of these maps, Nuke will perhaps be random, but I favour VP, Cobble I favour VP, Train I favour VP, and well Mirage I also favour VP on. I can’t see past them for this game.
VP as I said in my first game are due a bad event, I won’t bet on them here.
My odds for this match: Cloud9 35:65 VP
