This is the grand final of Northern Arena and OpTic might actually get their first decent achievement here, as much as I believe that Gamers2 are much better than OpTic, I still see it as a very close matchup, mainly because of the map pools which should be OpTic’s biggest advantage coming into this match. The first map vetoes are pretty obvious, we will see a mirage ban from Gamers2 and dust2 ban from OpTic, that leaves us with multiple upset possibilities for the Canadian team here. OpTic already upset Gamers2 on cache in New York, that was a stomp to be honest as OpTic won the match 16-7, there’s also train, cobblestone and overpass, really good maps for OpTic.
That being said, OpTic is the obvious pick here, it’s definitely not worth risking on Gamers2 with the current odds, they surely have a better chance of taking this match, but OpTic can take it as well and I put my trust in their hands.
My odds for this match: G2 Esports 55:45 OpTic Gaming
Grand final here and it should be a great match. We may as well go straight into the veto. Thinking about maps, I expect G2 to remove Mirage. I really don’t see another map they will remove there. Then OpTic have a few choices. In their games so far, they have removed Nuke and Mirage and I don’t expect them to remove Nuke here today. I could actually see them going for a D2 ban, as I still think they need some work on it. Picking the map is then quite hard too. G2 can go for almost anything – Cache, Train, Overpass. I do think OpTic will perhaps take Cobble. This should then leave Train, Overpass and Nuke. I think train is a quite likely 3rd map for these two. I would have to favour G2 here but I am nervous about OpTic as it is hard to gauge their real level right now. They have had some games where they look incredibly strong and others where they look weak. Right now, I think the best bet would be LOW on G2 to win, and LOW on OpTic to take at least 1 map.
My odds for this match: G2 Esports 60:40 OpTic Gaming
