This is the second semi final of ELEAGUE and not gonna lie, I’m really surprised to see OpTic making in this far, would be sick if they actually won the entire event, but it’s very unlikely that they wil, in fact, I think FaZe will eliminate them here, ever since karrigan joined the roster FaZe proved to be a good lan team, they played very well on IEM Oakland and finished on 3rd-4th place, and now they are in the semis of ELEAGUE, they had to beat Virtus.pro to get here, that was a tough task.
OpTic beat mousesports in the quarterfinal, I guess it’s safe to say that their opponents were much easier than FaZe’s, still quite impressed that OpTic actually 2-0’d them though, it was a very one sided match too, although mousesports actually could have won that if they went for dust2 instead of cache, but that’s just my opinion. RUSH was OpTic’s key to the victory against mousesports, he was absolutely insane in that series and I could see them beating FaZe if they continue to play like this.
Moving onto the maps, it’s quite hard to tell which team should be favored in the map veto process, both teams are great on maps like train, dust2, cache and overpass, so I’m not even sure what maps are they going to remove, OpTic are actually in a tough spot, they definitely have to ban mirage first and that would give FaZe an advantage of being able to pick dust2 or cache, I believe that those two maps should be slightly better for them, and FaZe will definitely remove cobblestone, so they don’t really have to worry about anything here. So, FaZe should be favored in this matchup, not by much as OpTic are extremely good and could easily upset FaZe here, but I’d say it should be around 55-45 for FaZe and I think they will take it, so I pick them to win this match.
My odds for this match: OpTic Gaming 45:55 FaZe
