Alrighty so this is one that I hope and think that SK should and will win. Just for the sake of a good major final I want SK to take this, and if the team lifting the trophy is not Liquid, I sure hope it is SK. SK for me right now are the strongest team in the world by quite some margin, it seems that other top tier 1 teams have dropped off quite a bit, especially of course Virtus Pro being one of the leaders of this fall of tier 1 teams in 2016. From watching VP play this tournament and what not, I do not have confidence in them taking this here, I am quite surprised they are even in the semi-finals lol, but then again seeing how far Gambit and Flipsid3 and what not made it, not a surprise, it seems that all the big dogs just really sucked in the major for reasons. You of course can not count Virtus Pro out entirely, they are still VP and can, if they show up be a lethal side, however they would at this point need something more than just being on form to beat SK I think. There is a very small list of teams that I’d say can consistently beat SK right now, and Virtus Pro is not one of those. 70-30 SK.
5% SK under 77%, otherwise 2% VP
My odds = 70-30 SK
My risk = High
My bet =5% SK under 77%, otherwise 2% VP
My advice = Same as my bet
My odds for this match: VP 30:70 SK Gaming
This is a no-brainer, seriously I could blindly bet on SK Gaming here, they are the best team in the world and have been doing great this year, they won a lot of events and finished on the second place on the rest, SK Gaming pretty much always get far in the events they attend, I also expect them to win this major even though fnatic also look scary and could beat them, either way, this matchup against Virtus.pro shouldn’t be too hard for SK, they are playing extremely well now, while VP are in a massive slump and have been playing just bad for the last few months, they still somehow managed to win Starladder Invitational, but let’s be real here, VP and Na’Vi were the only good teams on that event and still Virtus.pro barely beat Worst Players in the first round, so you be the judge.
So regardless of the maps I think SK Gaming will win this 2-0, maybe they could actually lose a map if it’s train but other than that I believe they will win the match quite easily, I’d go with a medium bet on SK Gaming although there is still a very small chance for Virtus.pro to upset them so this match is not safe at all.
My odds for this match: VP 25:75 SK Gaming
