Heroic is by far the weakest team on this event and there is no way they are making it to the playoffs as their group is extremely hard and there is not much they can do here. North are the clear favorites coming into this match, and they should be able to win this with ease as long as they don’t understimate Heroic the way they did with OpTic on Dreamhack Masters Las Vegas, but I’m pretty sure they wouldn’t make the same mistake twice. So, looking at the maps, we’re most likely see North ban train and cache, not sure about Heroic’s ban but they definitely don’t want to play cobblestone and mirage against North, but then again, pretty much all maps should be better for North, so that’s a tricky situation for Heroic, although I believe that we might actually see either overpass or cobble here, based on the previous map picks of these two teams.
Either way, North are way better as a team and have much more talent on their side, they should be able to win this match as Heroic is the weakest team they will meet here, so let’s bet on North here, small bet because I don’t really trust them because of their match against OpTic.
My odds for this match: North 60:40 Heroic
Domestic match up is always unpredictable, and this one should be no different. Two Danish sides facing off here, who know each other really well. Heroic of course, just changed JUGI for Friis, and he is for sure an upgrade. I have not really seen how he performs on LAN before, but he will need to have a big game. I do give Heroic a chance here, for two reasons. The first being they are both Danish and the second being MSL messes up so many veto’s. If the veto goes as expected, I think North will take this, but I would seriously keep an eye on what map comes out here. I don’t think we will see Cache, Nuke or Inferno. Overpass is very likely. I doubt we will see Train or Mirage, with Cobble also perhaps making an appearance. I do still think North takes it, as long as the map is a good one.
My odds for this match: North 65:35 Heroic
