What can you say about LG right now. They are the best side right now in the world, they make playing vs top teams look easy, and on Mirage especially, they look like they can’t be beaten. The last two games I saw of them on this map, were incredible. Their CT side is so diverse, it is almost impossible to do anything against, other than out aiming them, which as we know, is incredibly hard to do. G2 have been kind of what you would expect from them. They lost to astralis, lost to FaZe, and beat mouz. In these games though, the one key thing was, they made a whole load of mistakes, it was unreal how many rounds they lost they should have won, and against a side like LG, if you make a single mistake that loses you a round, that could be the end of the game.
Now the veto is kind of hard to do because well, we don’t know the system yet. The first season of the finals used a simple system, where both teams would elim maps until only one was left. Where as G2 has a few maps they aren’t great on, the veto for LG is a bit more difficult to predict. I could see LG removing D2, and G2 Mirage. The LG – Cache, G2 -Overpass. LG -Inferno, G2 -Train, which will leave us on Cobble. There is a chance it could be Train too. Both these maps heavily favour LG, but if they are over 80%, for a BO1, I think you either ICB on G2, or SKIP.
My odds for this match: Luminosity 80:20 G2
Alrighty so right off the bat not a fan of these BO1 matches, the odds will be very one sided however given that it is infact a BO1, upset potential is quite high. G2 is not a terrible side, they are at 15% right now in a BO1 and that is just disrespectful I feel. G2 are a top 2 French side, and yes while they are somewhat struggling and Bodyy may not have necessarily settled in entirely to the team, you can not count out the fact that G2’s star players turn up big time and LG go missing for a map, probably not, Coldzera will probably just 30-6 his way through the whole map however we can theorize. LG have been jumping from event to event while G2 have gotten some time to chill, however I do not think that should affect them too much. With G2 you never know what you will get, at times they can be quite good and beat some good teams out there, and other times they just completely flop and make no sense what so ever. For me to keep this short and nice, a 75-25 match in favor of LG. Expect them to win however T1 vs upper T2 match BO1, can’t go higher than a small in a BO1 like this.
5% LG under 82%, otherwise 2% G2
My odds = 75-25 LG
My risk = High
My bet = 5% LG under 82%, otherwise 2% G2
My advice = Same as my bet
My odds for this match: Luminosity 75:25 G2
