This match is literally unpredictable, anything could happen here and either team can win this match. I picked OpTic here because of their consistency and the fact that they are so incredibly good right now, recently won ELEAGUE Season 2 which was one of the biggest events in the history of Counter Strike, they also beat lots of very good teams such as mousesports, Astralis, Immortals, FaZe and many, many more.
ENVYUS are also very good, but also very inconsistent, they keep beating all those insane teams like Virtus.pro, NiP and Astralis but the day later they just get wrecked by the exact same teams, even used to struggle against mediocre tier 3 teams not too long ago, not to mention their match against Immortals which they barely won after being down by quite a lot, on top of that, OpTic wrecked ENVYUS on ELEAGUE, they won two maps very convincingly and barely lost on dust2, so their map pool seems to be better as well.
That being said, OpTic is my pick here, I still think it’s 50/50 but I just don’t feel like trusting ENVYUS here, way too inconsistent for me, so I suggest a small bet on OpTic.
My odds for this match: EnVyUs 50:50 OpTic Gaming
The veto for this game will be interesting one. Envy really don’t play train or overpass but were totally destroyed on overpass last time and I find it hard to believe they will keep it in again this time. That would then leave Train open for OpTic and I would be really surprised if they didn’t take it. I can actually see OpTic keeping Nuke in this time, as they showed against FaZe they can play it on, CT at least anyway, but even if they don’t, D2 should be the map or Nuke that the Envy boys take. This should favour them. We will then be left with Cache, Cobble and Mirage. OpTic will remove Mirage and Envy perhaps Cobble, but it is a hard one. Anyway, I do favour OpTic in the veto, but this one could go either way. LOW on OpTic for me.
My odds for this match: EnVyUs 45:55 OpTic Gaming
