This match seems to be quite easy, definitely not safe since it’s still a best of one, but it’s cobblestone and OpTic should be favored no matter what, it’s been their best map for a long time alongside train, they consistently beat some of the best teams in the world on it, especially SK Gaming who I believe lost to OpTic at least two or three times on cobble already, not to mention teams like Cloud9, Liquid and many others.
NRG are on a 4 map losing streak on cobble, they did get 14 rounds against SK Gaming and that’s pretty good, but they already lost to OpTic twice, got wrecked by Renegades and even CLG, they seem to be alright on cobble but nowhere near OpTic’s level in my opinion, when they win it’s mostly tabseN carrying them and I don’t think OpTic will let them win on that specific map, as they really need to win that match.
Small bet on OpTic should be fine here, that’s what I suggest, cobble should be their map.
My odds for this match: OpTic Gaming 65:35 NRG eSports
Cobble and Cache here, pretty much the 2 best maps for both sides. Should be cracking games. They are currently playing at the LAN on Nuke, a game which OpTic are cruising right now and have a good lead on their T side. You can’t read a lot from that as that map is not being played here and Nuke is incredibly random. Looking at the 2 maps, OpTic actuallt removed cache against NRG as NRG beat them on it last time, which is an interesting thing. NRG seem to be the nearly team on Cobble. They’ve had a lot of games where they almost beat top teams and just choked at the end. I do favour OpTic on both maps, but with them seemingly scared of NRG a bit on cache, a really LOW bet on them for this map makes sense, but is a risky one.
My odds for this match: OpTic Gaming 60:40 NRG eSports
