Stats for the NiP and Na’Vi as they've appeared on Tipify
A list of recent matches this team has played, green indicates a win and red a loss. Blue is a draw/cancelled
Should be a fairly simple veto, and a game I can see being 1-1. Navi should remove Cache and then probably Cobble, which has been really awful for them. NiP can then almost ban anything they want to get rid of. If they want to remove the best maps from Navi, then Train/Mirage/Overpass, 2 of these should go. Navi will then pick the one of those maps that is left, and NiP will take D2 or Nuke. You would have to favour both sides on their map picks, but so far this event, little has made any sense. Still, I do think this will go 1-1 and both sides will take their picks but who knows anymore with the randomness for this event. The order for the maps has changed, so NiP for Nuke, and Navi for Overpass.
My odds for this match: NiP 40:60 Na’Vi
This match could be the grand final, two teams with legendary players and insane level of play, it’s always hard to predict those close matches, but this time Na’Vi should have an edge due to their map pool advantage. We already know the maps, the first one is nuke and then overpass, makes it way easier to make the call here, NiP pretty much never lose on nuke, yesterday they lost their first match on nuke against dignitas, that was NiP’s only loss on that map so far. Na’Vi played nuke once, they beat dignitas on it and looked fine, however NiP are still better on that map in my opinion and it should go in their favor.
Second map is overpass, and this time I’d go with Na’Vi, just like NiP on nuke, Na’Vi haven’t lost a single match on overpass since April, insane if you think about it, so far they beat Heroic, PENTA, mousesports, NiP and FlipSid3, none of their opponents even made it to double digits.
NiP are also very good on overpass, not nearly as good and consistent as Na’Vi, they did lose to Astralis, fnatic, Na’Vi and Virtus.pro, also barely beat HellRaisers and Gamers2 in overtimes, not the best results, but still very good, I could definitely see them win this match, but everything should favor Na’Vi on this map and I’d try going with them instead.
To sum it up, first map – small bet on NiP, second – small bet on Na’Vi. I’m fairly confident with my picks this time.
My odds for this match: NiP 45:55 Na’Vi
