A list of recent matches this team has played, green indicates a win and red a loss. Blue is a draw/cancelled
This is a classic matchup between two of the best teams from North America, actually it’s even hard to tell which teams is actually the best right now, Cloud9 were looking really good when they won ESL Pro League, dropped a bit after that. OpTic on the other hand are very consistent and recently won ELEAGUE Season 2, not as impressive as many people think as OpTic had the easiest way to the final, but still quite impressive for a team of their caliber.
So OpTic are probably better at the moment, but the tricky part is that Cloud9 beat OpTic all the time, seems like they are OpTic’s kryptonite, but I still believe that OpTic improved so much lately that they should beat Cloud9 today, they are also great on some of C9’s best maps, so my bet is on OpTic here, let’s hope they perform as well as they did on ELEAGUE.
My odds for this match: OpTic Gaming 50:50 Cloud9
Hard to call game to be honest. There was a period when OpTic used to dominate C9 all the time but that seems to only be online and on Lan things have been different. The last few times they played, C9 really came out ahead regardless of how badly they were playing at the time, and I can see the same happening today. OpTic and C9 both have looked like they are struggling against EU teams who have worked them out, but against one another, it usually comes down to who is the better team and that is for sure C9. I will go LOW on them.
My odds for this match: OpTic Gaming 45:55 Cloud9
