Pasting the same prediction because I think that Liquid will take both maps.
Damn this is a hard match, both teams changed one played and I have no idea what to expect, not that I know which team I’m going to bet on, it’s obviously Liquid as they have been top 1 in North America for quite a while now, they also signed Pimp who’s a pretty good European player, definitely not s1mple’s caliber but he’s not that far behind, I’m sure they will be just as good as they were with s1mple.
Cloud9 on the other hand, couldn’t really practice as some of their players were on vacation and stuff, they only played for one or two days and tried out autimatic who I believe will play for them today, that’s definitely an upgrade over Slemmy although Cloud9 got kinda wrecked because today Valve decided to limit coach communication, you can only use a coach on the warmup, timeouts and between the halves, I’m pretty sure Cloud9 are not happy about this change and it will definitely make them play worse, same story with Liquid though, peacemaker is their coach/IGL and it’s definitely going to be hard to adapt.
So overall I feel like Liquid are slightly better than Cloud9 right now and they always had a better map pool which is their biggest advantage here, that’s why I’ll be going with Liquid even though this match is definitely not safe, I’m still confident with my bet though.
My odds for this match: Liquid 60:40 Cloud9
