A list of recent matches this team has played, green indicates a win and red a loss. Blue is a draw/cancelled
I was surprised with the odds when I saw this match today, but then I realized that fnatic will use Jumpy instead of dennis here and that explains it all. Jumpy was terrible back when he still played, I literally never saw him with a positive rating, constantly bottom fragging and playing straight up bad, while dennis is fnatic’s best player and the main reason of fnatic’s recent wins, so that’s basically the biggest downgrade they could go for.
So, fnatic is the better team here for sure, but not with this lineup, it’s basically 4v5 now as Jumpy won’t frag well, he is there to call strats basically, I still believe that olofmeister, KRiMZ, twist and disco doplan could win this match for fnatic, but OpTic is a great team, they recently won Northern Arena over Gamers2 in the grand final, and they are looking great, also have been getting very promising results against European teams lately, so beating fnatic with a stand in should not be an issue for them either, especially on ther home soil.
This is a best of one and it’s hard to predict the map again, I’d say we will see either cobble or train as these two maps are best for both teams, in that case OpTic’s chances are even higher so I’d give them a chance here.
My odds for this match: Fnatic 45:55 OpTic Gaming
When I was thinking about this game, I honestly would think OpTic had a good chance regardless of the roster. Fnatic have shown a lot of weakness since they got in disco doplan, and you can see they will need time. They have not clicked together yet. With this a BO1, even more so is a good chance for an upset. OpTic have been in really good form lately. They won their last event, beating G2 in the final, which is really impressive. Thinking about maps, we already know it. It will be Cache. This is a really good map for the fnatic boys, and I feel like it gives the edge slightly more towards the Swedish side. I do feel at these odds, you HAVE to go on OpTic though, and I will go LOW on them.
My odds for this match: Fnatic 55:45 OpTic Gaming
