This match is pretty risky but OpTic should be heavily favored in my opinion, cobblestone is their best map, they always pick it even against stronger teams, and lately they’ve been doing really well on it, even against some of the best teams in the world, OpTic managed to beat SK Gaming 16-10 and got 14 rounds against Virtus.pro, I think they are #1 on cobble in North America right now, it’s clearly their best map.
NRG are very good on cobble as well, they managed to get 14 rounds against SK Gaming recently, beat Liquid and a couple of weaker teams such as Selfless and CLG, didn’t look nearly as good as OpTic, but actually had a decent game against them too, they lost 16-19 and it was very close, honestly OpTic should have won that match way easier given that they had a pretty big lead at the start, but couldn’t close it out and NRG managed to make it to OT.
Either way, I trust OpTic here, they still need to win a map or two in order to qualify for the finals, I think this is the match they will take.
My odds for this match: OpTic Gaming 65:35 NRG eSports
Meh, both teams are already qualified and I don’t realllly have the best feeling for either side here. These two sides played on the same two maps they play tonight just the other week. They both ended as victories for OpTic, but they were incredibly close. Cobble ended in OT, and Cache ended 16-14. I can see NRG taking one of the maps tonight as OpTic have always seemed to drop games when they didn’t really matter anymore. NRG did not really look convincing the last few days, but I do expect a better showing tonight. I will go 2x LOW on NRG, and hope they can snatch one of the maps away.
My odds for this match: OpTic Gaming 60:40 NRG eSports
