There are no easy matches on this event and it’s gonna be hard to call some of them, however this one is a bit easier as Astralis is definitely the best team in the world now and OpTic lost their in game leader, didn’t look nearly as good without him so far, on top of that, if you take a look at the previous head to head results between these two teams, you’ll see that Astralis have a massive advantage, they are currently on a 6 map winning streak against OpTic.
Astralis definitely looked better on the recent events, they won the major and finished 3rd-4th on Dreamhack Masters Las Vegas, while OpTic got eliminated in the group stage in Las Vegas and went 1-3 on the major where they still had stanislaw. The map pool is also better for Astralis, there are few maps OpTic could win, definitely cobblestone and cache, maybe even inferno, but the rest should be way better for Astralis and I’m sure they know what maps they have to remove, so yea I’d stick to Astralis here, small bet though.
My odds for this match: OpTic Gaming 37:63 Astralis
Will make these short as there is so many today. Going right into this game, I have to favour astralis right from the get go. 6 map win streak against OpTic lost their IGL and have not been performing as well at all. They lost to astralis, then lost to North, then lost to IMT, then managed to win vs IMT on Overpass. This is actually the map I can see it being today and I have to favour the Danes. The only issue here is the odds are pretty bad, so perhaps add astralis into a parlay. Of course the map plays a part, and if we see Cache or Cobble, then go on OpTic. If we see Nuke or Inferno, skip.
My odds for this match: OpTic Gaming 35:65 Astralis
