This match is actually very interesting, my initial thought was to just go with Gamers2 and relax as they are the clear favorites here, but then I started thinking about the maps and I feel like OpTic actually have a better map pool here, it’s very likely that we’ll see cobble or train here which are some of OpTic’s best maps, while Gamers2 already got wrecked by Liquid on cobble and lost a lot of online matches on these two maps, not to mention that G2 got wrecked by Heroic, and barely beat teams like PENTA and Kinguin.
So cobblestone and train is what we will see most likely, but the rest of the maps is just as good for OpTic, they beat SK Gaming 16-3 on overpass so that’s clearly a good map for them, and won lots of matches on cache, but I’m pretty sure they will try to avoid this map.
That being said, there are three options – cobblestone, train or overpass, all maps are great for both teams, but OpTic have a very good chance of upsetting on them and Gamers2 are in a slump right now, this is a perfect opportunity for OpTic and I’d try with a small bet on them.
My odds for this match: G2 50:50 OpTic Gaming
Find it hard to believe that G2 will lose this game and go home without winning a single match. OpTic are not a bad side, they have some good players, but they are not international players yet. They are basically the Kryptonite of C9, and that is how they qualified for this event, but they still need some work. That’s not to say that they can’t beat G2 here, because if the G2 of yesterday shows up, anything is possible. They looked so poor it was insane, with scream perhaps the only one shining in any of the games. I can see the map being Cache or Train, and on both of these maps, I feel like G2 SHOULD have enough, if they can play their normal game.
My odds for this match: G2 65:35 OpTic Gaming
