I was sure that Na’Vi would be my pick here, but after watching their first game I just can’t convince myself to bet on them anymore, they got demolished by Liquid on nuke, and they are currently losing to TyLoo on overpass which is Na’Vis best map, they were considered as the best overpass team in the world, now they can’t beat an Asian team on it. Na’Vi were looking bad in general lately, they keep losing their matches, recently against dignitas, SK Gaming, Liquid, NiP, Gamers2 and many more.
Astralis are not looking that hot either, but clearly better than Na’Vi, beating SK Gaming is already good enough of a reason for me to bet on Astralis over Na’Vi, they also had a couple of bad games recently, but seems like they are stepping it up with gla1ve, I also feel like Astralis should have an advantage with their map pool here. Looking at the maps we should see a cache ban from Na’Vi as always, cobble from Astralis, then I guess Astralis would remove train while Na’Vi should veto either nuke or dust2. The remaining maps would be mirage, overpass and either dust2 or nuke depending on the vetos, in that case I’d say Astralis should have a slight edge, so there you have another reason for a small bet on the underdogs here.
Astralis is my pick, I still think it’s 50/50 but I’m feeling that the danes will end up winning here so I’d try a small bet on them.
My odds for this match: Na’Vi 50:50 Astralis
Navi are not looking good right now, which is disappointing. It seems the coach ban has really affected them and that is a shame. Astralis are also a hard one to pin point and really this game will be a toss up of who can be the least poor. Thinking about the maps, I can envisage this one going to Mirage. Navi did have the choice to play it now though, but actually removed it for Overpass, which was interesting. Other potential maps are perhaps D2, and maybe overpass as well. I do have to favour Navi here, but I don’t feel comfortable about either side. Again, will have to wait for the map, but thinking about the maps we won’t see. It won’t be Cobble or Cache. If the map is Overpass or Nuke, go on astralis, if the map is Train or Mirage, go on Navi, but only below 60% on Mirage. If the map is D2, play the odds and go on ast most likely.
My odds for this match: Na’Vi 55:45 Astralis
