OpTic have for the most part seemed pretty good today. They totally destroyed G2, beat astralis and looked really strong. Their opponents have destroyed Liquid, and lost against Navi and SK in pretty poor fashion. The key for the SK loss, was winning both pistols, and then being ecoed right after. If they had gotten their 6 rounds from these 2 pistols, the score would have been 12-12, and the game could have gone either way. They are famous for saying they always win against NA sides and I can kind of feel that happening here and think that VP will just edge it. I would expect to see a Train again, or perhaps a Cobble, but this one could be a close one. LOW on VP for me.
My odds for this match: OpTic Gaming 45:55 VP
Sad time as one of these two teams will get eliminated, the loser of this match is out of the tournament. Virtus.pro are the favorites here, they won ELEAGUE and Dreamhack Bucharest not too long ago, but that’s not the only reason why they’re favored of course, OpTic never achieved anything as big as that and Virtus.pro are on fire right now, they consistently beat some of the best teams in the world and look great overall, it would be pretty insane to see them getting eliminated by OpTic here.
OpTic impressed everyone on this event, they wrecked Gamers2 and beat Astralis, their match against SK Gaming was very close too, the only bad match OpTic played so far was against fnatic and they just got wrecked there. OpTic have been playing extremely well lately, they proved that playing on big stages is not an issue for them, but I’m affraid that their amazing run is over, even though there are few maps OpTic could easily win against Virtus.pro, maps like cobble, overpass and train for example, I still don’t think they will eliminated one of worlds best teams like that.
As much as I hate betting on Virtus.pro, especially in best of one matches, I just don’t think they will get knocked out early, not by a North American team… Small bet on Virtus.pro this time, I’ll give them a chance here.
My odds for this match: OpTic Gaming 40:60 VP
