Interesting matchup, quite affraid to bet on it because dignitas looked great lately, but I still think that NiP is the better team here, they were godlike against Gamers2 on cobble, not so much on cache, but shox was on fire, no wonder they lost. So, if I understand the format correctly first match should be on NiP’s pick, I honestly have no idea what maps to expect, they usually liked to play on mirage, cache and dust2, but they’re also very strong on other maps, pretty sure they don’t want to face dignitas on mirage as well, I feel like there’s a very high chance of nuke being the first map given that NiP are great on it and dignitas liked this map too.
I think NiP looked better on nuke overall, they won all of their matches on nuke so far, already beat teams like Virtus.pro, dignitas and ENVYUS, in fact the only team to get a double digit score against NiP were HellRaisers.
dignitas won like 15 matches on nuke and lost 3, although at least half of their matches were against weaker teams such as Gambit, Tengri, Wizards and Tricked, they did stomp Virtus.pro, FaZe and Heroic though.
Well, we can’t be sure that it is going to be nuke, but I’m pretty sure it will be either nuke or cobble and in that case it’s going to be extremely hard to make the right call, I’d go with NiP because they were on top forever, while dignitas started doing well just one or two months ago. Small bet on NiP, still super risky but I think they should have an upper hand here.
My odds for this match: NiP 60:40 Dignitas
In 10 BO1’s so far, the team has won their own map pick once. This just highlights firstly how random BO1’s are, and secondly, how it is impossible to predict a BO1 without knowing the map, but apparently even if you do, picking the outcome with any sense of logic is almost impossible. I will try to go about this prediction another way and leave the bet open and merely mention maps. If Dig end up on Cobble, Overpass or Mirage, I would suggest a LOW bet on them. Nuke you can PERHAPS, but is really random. D2, Cache, Train I would 100% go on NiP. We might see these two sides make no sense again, but I am hoping for a little bit of normality here.
My odds for this match: NiP 55:45 Dignitas
