Not sure what’s up with the odds here, Heroic are slightly better than Vega Squadron but not by as much as the odds would suggest. Vega Squadron is a very inconsistent team but they are known for pulling off big upsets, especially for that upset against NiP on the ELEAGUE Major qualifier where they won like 16-2 on one of NiP’s best maps, that was really sick. Vega also beat a couple of decent tier 2 / tier 3 teams recently, won 2-1 against Epsilon, absolutely demolished LDLC, but got 2-0’d by PRIDE and that’s the inconsistency I’ve been talking about.
Heroic are the favorites for sure, they are extremely good, although recently replaced Friis with JUGI which in my opinion is an upgrade, but they looked shaky in their first matches with JUGI and might need some time to get along, so far they 2-0’d fnatic Academy in a pretty close series and tied against LDLC, they lost 16-14 on cobblestone and won 16-12 on overpass, so very close as well.
Now, the fragging power and the map pool are definitely in Heroic’s favor which just makes me feel like they are going to win, but I’m not sure about those odds, but then again, I really don’t trust Vega because of their inconsistency, so I’d just stick to Heroic here, it could be close though.
My odds for this match: Heroic 56:44 Vega
Hard to call game to start the day off between two decent sides. I really like the pickup of JUGI for heroic and the signs have been looking good since he joined, and they will only get better. They have a very young hungry roster now with a lot of skilled players. Vega are a really hard to call side. They are very inconsistent, but when they are good, they are really good. When they are bad however, they can be really poor. They won against Epsilon but then lost 2-0 to pride. I can see the CIS side winning a map actually, and the other 2 maps being close but the fire power and consistency of the Heroic boys is just that little bit better. LOW on heroic just for me.
Edit : Interesting maps, will go REALLY LOW on Vega.
My odds for this match: Heroic 60:40 Vega
