A list of recent matches this team has played, green indicates a win and red a loss. Blue is a draw/cancelled
This is a must win for SK Gaming, Heroic is the weakest team in this group and beating them would give SK Gaming a safe 1-0 start. SK Gaming should be the winning team here as Heroic are simply not on their level, they did beat a couple of stronger opponents recently, I guess it’s safe to say that Heroic beating Gamers2 on nuke was a pretty big upset, they also beat Liquid and won few maps against ENVYUS, HellRaisers and OpTic, but lost majority of their matches, even against Epsilon and fnatic Academy which is just embarassing.
SK Gaming needs no introduction here, hands down the best team in the world, didn’t perform up to their standards on ESL Pro League where they lost to Cloud9 in the grand final, but that was just a single event, other than that SK Gaming looked great as always, their map pool is not the best, but it’s good enough to avoid any risks against weaker teams of Heroic’s caliber, SK Gaming’s players are also insane individually, and that should be enough to beat Heroic.
I really couldn’t find a single reason to bet on Heroic here, this is SK Gaming’s match to win and they will take it, I’m very confident so this time I’ll go for a medium bet.
My odds for this match: Heroic 25:75 SK Gaming
Should be a fairly easy win for SK if they play to their normal level. Heroic are not a bad side, but are in transition since they lost gla1ve and while niko is a good player, he is very inexperienced. SK looked really strong in their recent games, and apart from a blip against astralis, they totally dominated Navi and looked almost back to their best. Heroic did have good wins over Liquid and G2, but were really out classed by OpTic on the 3rd map. I could envisage seeing a Train today, which would be a good map for both, and as with all BO1’s, there is the chance for an upset, but I do think SK should be starting off strong and taking this one.
My odds for this match: Heroic 30:70 SK Gaming
