Ah the good old Swedish rivalry, these are always fun. It seems like no matter what sort of form either team is in or what they are going through, these always end up close, obviously form and what not dictates who eventually wins the series, however these are usually quite close and can just come down to who is feeling it on the day and which big players step up here. Both of these teams know eachouther inside out, they have faced eachother so many times, it’s unreal. Ahm NiP seem to be a bit up and down right now, apparently Pyth and Friberg are not 100% in terms of health, so that is something to keep in mind however don’t think that affects players too much and meanwhile Fnatic are getting carried by Wenton versus Astralis but still lose, hmmmm, I think it is clear as day right now that they are 1. Big time missing Olof and 2. Wenton is not the problem of their struggles, kinda contradicting, but the whole team is just struggling is what I mean, and they don’t have an Olof to bring them back up. Eitherway, think this will be close however gotta favor NiP here, 60-40 in favor of them.
3% NiP under 67%, otherwise 3% Fnatic
My odds = 60-40 NiP
My risk = High
My bet = 3% NiP under 67%, otherwise 3% Fnatic
My advice = Same as my bet
My odds for this match: NiP 60:40 Fnatic
Tough game to call because I do think that NiP will most likely take it, but they have not been looking at their very best lately, with rumours of some of them being ill, including their IGL threat, it is evident that they are not playing at 100%. Also, the side believed they were already through yesterday, so there is that. They may not have been trying their hardest, but now they will have too. An all Swedish affair is always really close, and form does not seem to play a big part in how both sides perform. I do still favour NiP going into this game, but fnatic will also be really determined to win this game to ensure they have a spot at the LAN. Like I said before, NiP are for sure the favourites going into this, and although I do think they will win, I cannot bet on them at these odds. This is a 65-35 game max, and with the odds how they are currently, LOW on fnatic is the only logical bet.
My odds for this match: NiP 67:33 Fnatic
I can’t really find a reason to bet on fnatic in this matchup, they have been playing really bad without olofmeister and lost majority of their matches in the last month or even longer, they already played NiP around three weeks ago and it was pretty one sided, NiP took the series 2-0 beating them 16-7 on overpass and 16-11 on cobblestone, this time they are playing for a spot in the main event of ECS Season 1 and surely both teams will try their best as only 2 teams out of 4 will make it.
NiP are doing great, they have been getting very impressive results ever since they won Dreamhack Malmo, right after this event NiP managed to beat teams like ENVYUS, fnatic, Gamers2, Astralis, dignitas, Liquid and mousesports, in the last two months they lost only four matches in total against Virtus.pro, Gamers2, Luminosity and FaZe, pretty impressive if you ask me.
So, NiP beat fnatic twice already and I’m pretty sure this match will also go in their favor, they look way better than fnatic at the moment and it really seems like NiP improved their map pool, I don’t think they have any “bad” maps right now.
My odds for this match: NiP 70:30 Fnatic
