So many close double headers this week, and almost all of them feature Virtus.pro who skipped IEM Oakland to get a better chance of winning those matches by prepare for their opponents, didn’t work out against GODSENT as they could have 2-0’d them but ended up losing one of the maps. This time it should be a bit easier, even though ENVYUS are better than GODSENT, I think Virtus.pro got a bit more lucky with the maps here, they are absolutely insane on cobblestone and are considered as the best team in the world on that map, second map is mirage and ENVYUS often ban this map as they don’t feel comfortable playing it, so Virtus.pro should have an edge there as well. Virtus.pro looked better on both maps lately, especially with ENVYUS’ loss against OpTic on cobble which is something I did not expect, we rarely see Virtus.pro get upset like this on cobble.
So, for now, Virtus.pro is my pick on both maps, especially mirage, but I might change my pick if they don’t show up against Gamers2 earlier today, so make sure to check the predictions again after the first double header.
My odds for this match: EnVyUs 45:55 VP
Find these two games really hard to call. Cobble and mirage are two good maps for both sides. VP are the best Cobble side in the world when they are on their game, but we also saw the other VP earlier, who were really really poor. Envy have been pretty strong on Cobble for a while, but had a poor loss on it against OpTic, and there seems to be issues in the side again. Betting on VP here is almost hoping they don’t play like they did earlier, which feels incredibly risky, but I have seen VP look so poor and then look so good a game later. I do have to favour VP for both maps, and will start off with a LOW bet on VP for Cobble and take it from there.
My odds for this match: EnVyUs 40:60 VP
