Stats for the eBettle and Kinguin as they've appeared on Tipify
Kinguin did fine at the major. They took down Immunity 16-13 and upset Cloud9 16-13 on Dust2, but they went out of the tournament by losing to TSM 0-2 in the quarter finals. They did alright, however they really haven’t been performing in their online matches since the major. Ever since they were knocked out of Cologne by TSM, they have had four straight 0-2 losses in BO3s. The teams they played were Flipsid3, TSM, Virtus Pro, and SK Gaming. You would expect Kinguin to be the underdog against Virtus Pro and TSM, but against Flipsid3 and SK it’s really unacceptable to lose 0-2 to both.
eBettle was the team who surprised everybody in the Cologne qualifiers, but went out in group stages as expected in the real tournament. They went 0-2 in groupstages by losing to Fnatic 2-16 on Mirage and to CLG 14-16. They actually put up a pretty good fight considering that CLG love to play Mirage. For the ESL One Cologne qualifiers eBettle went 3-0 against Titan, Hellraisers, and Epiphany. No one expected eBettle to do so well, and really they played great and fought hard for their spot at the major. The Titan game went to triple overtime before eBettle finally won 25-23, and the Hellraisers game was 16-14. eBettle are a team who are easily overlooked, yet provide some great upsets.
The reason I say ICB on eBettle here is because we’ve seen how they can play against tier two teams, and they have a real shot at this. Kinguin will most likely be winning this match but with their recent online results I’m not so sure. No large bets here, just throw some skins on eBettle that you don’t care about and hope for the best. Good luck!
