Honestly just skip this. I am looking at this and maybe I am just biased,however you could argue that Liquid deserves to be the favorites here. Envy are the more experienced team and are historically better, however I have no idea where they stand in terms of their slump, I am pretty positive they are not out yet judging by their E-League scorelines and what not, however they are looking a lot better, and that group was a mess to deal with overall so not a real measurement of how good they are at the moment. Liquid of course have JDM and S1mple here instead of Adren and Koosta which is just an amazing upgrade and makes them look so god damn deadly on paper it is unreal. Anybody on Liquid can go off at any time, and given that it is a BO1, basically win you the game, the leadership of Peacemaker too behind them calling every round now too, that is just so deadly in my eyes, however once again maybe I am biased as an Liquid fanboy. The amount of uncertainty and the fact that the odds are so right at the moment on Lounge at least, I do not want to bet on this. I will favor Envy here because they have more structure and what not, however this could get very close. Overall, 60-40 Envy. Skip this. Also notoriously BO1’s on LAN are Envy’s weakness so that’s that too.
Skip this, not worth the bet.
My odds = 60-40 Envy
My risk = High
My bet = I might throw a fanboy very small on Liquid, but that is just to support the team by…..probably losing money, 10/10 support
My advice = Skip this.
My odds for this match: Liquid 40:60 EnVyUs
This match might be even harder than the previous ones, seems like ENVYUS are out of their slump and they are finally doing well again, while Liquid is still a one big question mark, they were bootcamping for ECS Season 1 Finals as well as this event, ECS didn’t go too well for them as they only managed to beat Gamers2 in a best of one, but lost against Luminosity and Gamers2 in a best of three later on, I didn’t really expect much since their lineup is still fairly new and that win over Gamers2 was a big surprise to be honest, but I believe jdm is a great addition to their team, they just need some time to get along together.
ENVYUS have been doing great lately, they had a great showing on ELEAGUE where they 2-0’d Gambit, compLexity twice and went 3-1 in total against Virtus.pro, ESL One Cologne qualifier went pretty well for them too, they managed to beat Immortals, Splyce and Cloud9 with only a single loss against Gambit which they should have won anyway, but had a little bit of fun and lost the map in the end.
I’d say this match is basically a 50-50 coinflip and either team could take it, but ENVYUS are a bit more exprienced and played on the top level pretty much forever, so I’d give them a slight edge and yea I would go with a small bet on ENVYUS.
My odds for this match: Liquid 50:50 EnVyUs
Really hard game to call here. Liquid had some good and bad moments the last time we saw them with s1mple, and by this point they should be a little more prepared. They had more time to work on things together and improve as a team. Envy have been slowly showing their old form, and against VP they looked incredibly strong, with kennys hitting shots he hasn’t hit in what seems like forever. This is a game that largely will depend on which side the two teams show. If Envy play like they can, they will for sure take this, but if they go back to their old level, then Liquid will take it. The map will be really important, and I could foresee a Cache or perhaps a Cobble. Overall,. I do favour Envy a tiny bit, and will go LOW on them below 60%. This is a game that could go either way though.
My odds for this match: Liquid 45:55 EnVyUs
