Correct me if I’m wrong but as far as I know CLG have no chance of qualifying anymore, while Echo Fox can still qualify in certain scenarios, if they win their following matches and Liquid lose for example, not entirely sure but it just seems like that’s how it works. This is dust2 which is obviously Echo Fox’s pick, they always pick this map and seems like they are very good on it, recent results may not seem that good, but they did beat teams like Liquid, TSM, Cloud9 and OpTic, so they are definitely not bad. Echo Fox also had a close match against NRG and SK Gaming on itand beat Na’Vi in ELEAGUE but that was quite a while ago.
CLG stepped it up recently, I didn’t expect them to beat teams like SK Gaming, Liquid and Renegades, they also played lots of very close maps against Immortals and Cloud9, even though CLG lost almost every single match they played so far, it’s not that hard to see that they improve every day, I’m still waiting for Subroza to step it up as he’s been doing really bad ever since he joined the team, definitely the worst player in the team right now, I’d also like to see koosta main awping again, I think CLG could easily become one of the better teams in their region with those changes.
Looking at CLG’s results on dust2 I’m not too convinced, they did look slightly better than Echo Fox recently, but I’m affraid that CLG won’t be able to do much with Cutler as an awper, ShahZaM is way better and he will most likely win majority of the duels which should give Echo Fox a pretty big advantage with the map control and they should have an upper hand here, therefore I’d try a small bet on Echo Fox here, it’s extremely risky though, pretty much 50/50.
My odds for this match: CLG 45:55 Echo Fox
Really hard to call game here. D2 the most random map, and Train, a map where both teams have had good performances and really bad ones. Echo Fox were a really strong D2 side, but their last few results on this map, have been really poor. They got smashed by IMT, struggled against WFX, lost to SK, lost to OpTic, lost to C9, lost to NRG. I do still think that Echo will most likely take the first map, but with the odds on CLG right now, and how much they have stepped up lately, including koosta, I might dabble a tiny bit on them for this map. Train feels a lot more random, and it honestly depends on whether the poor Train CLG turns up, or the smashing Liquid one does.
My odds for this match: CLG 40:60 Echo Fox
