A list of recent matches this team has played, green indicates a win and red a loss. Blue is a draw/cancelled
People might hate me for this but I actually think that Team X is the best danish team right now, they did extremely well lately beating teams like HellRaisers, FaZe, Godsent, Space Soldiers and even went 2-0 against Astralis in Pro League, not to mention that their matches against FaZe went 16-4 and 16-0 in Team X’s favor (they lost the previous series though), and Team X also won 14 rounds against NiP on cobblestone which is pretty huge too, I really feel like both Astralis and dignitas are below them with all those recent struggles and Team X will only get better from here, they could even become a top team.
MK is one of the teams that will always stay on that tier 2 level, they can’t participate in Valve’s events due to dream3r’s VAC ban, and they always seem to play worse in qualifiers, so MK is basically an online team because they just never qualify for lan events. MK is a great team though, they are usually consistent and well their recent results clearly show how good they are, MK consistently beat teams like AGG, Kinguin, ENCE, Alternate and Escape, thy also played a best of three series against Team X a month ago and it was very close, MK beat them 16-11 on inferno, lost 14-16 on train and mirage, although this time inferno is not in the map pool so we won’t see any easy maps for MK anymore.
So the tricky part is that MK are good on pretty much every single map, luckily Team X’s map pool is just as good and they are also way better individually, and that’s why I feel like they will take it, I also feel like throwing a medium bet here, I just feel super confident with Team X.
My odds for this match: MK 35:65 X
Now, in theory Team X should win this. Team X are pulling results out of their ass I think, and i mean I don’t see why it would stop, oh wait, yes I do. The Team X guys in my opinion are in a honeymoon stage right now and I do not think they will be able to keep up what they have been doing. The roster in my eyes isn’t great, it’s on paper, take away Valde and MK is stronger I think, however MK has never been able to achieve the success of Team X, so that’s that. Like literally, this pretty average roster gets put together and instantly they are competing with teams like NiP and Astralis, like please. 100% won’t be slightly surprised if they are showing this great of form only to drop to MK, they did lose to HR yesterday so that is that. This is WCA, not a tournament most teams will care about however still, 15k first place, quite decent, better than the 2.5k winner tournaments we have around. Team X I feel should be favored here, however no Valde = No party. I feel like if Valde has a bad game vs decent opposition, team X will lose since he is such an instrumental member to them, definitely their best player and fragger, I think most of their success is coming due to him. That being said, he has been really consistent so yeah. MK themselves are incredibly up and down most of the time, so betting on them is never reliable, however they do make for a heck of an underdog, plus they’ve been in good form. The odds here aren’t the best tho, pretty accurate which is unfortunate, bookies not falling for that Team X hype 🙁 Overall, 60-40 Team X for me here. I expect them to win however, not a fan of the lineup and would not be surprised if they lost.
3% X under 67%, otherwise 3% MK
My odds = 60-40 X
My risk = High
My bet = 3% X under 67%, otherwise 3% MK
My advice = Same as my bet
My odds for this match: MK 40:60 X
MK are one of those sides I really hate predicting. You never really know what to expect from them. For the most part though, they have looked good lately, beating Kinguin twice, Ence, AGG, is pretty good form. The Team X guys have been slowly making moves and improving all the time. Taking down astralis, beating HR, SS, Kinguin, Anox, with their only recent loss coming against HR on Nuke. I do favour them for this match up, but the odds are for sure off. The last time these 2 met, it was 2-1 to Team X, with 2 of the maps being 16-14. You should really take advantage of the odds in games like this, and betting on MK to take at least 1 map, is a really good bet. You can also go LOW on them to take the whole thing, which is a good but very risky underdog bet.
My odds for this match: MK 40:60 X
