A list of recent matches this team has played, green indicates a win and red a loss. Blue is a draw/cancelled
This one is even harder than ENCE vs Kinguin, mostly because I have a feeling that PENTA will win here but the odds are terrible for a bet on them, LDLC may have been performing poorly in the recent matches, but they have a very strong lineup and will become a great team eventually, they already pulled off a couple of sick upsets but also lost few matches which they should have won.
So LDLC’s best results to this day were 2-0 against Alternate, 2-0 against K1CK and Tricked, and few draws against Orbit and Escape, they also played PENTA a month ago and were one round away from taking the series so they are definitely capable of beating PENTA.
PENTA didn’t play any better than LDLC in the recent weeks, they got demolished by Alternate, managed to beat eSuba, ANOX, Escape, barely beat deadweight and K1CK, also lost against ENCE and Gambit, so not the best results but their team seems to be a bit more “solid” than LDLC and their matches looked better even though the results were pretty much the same.
This match will either be a complete stomp or we’ll see a nail biting series, either team can take it but betting on PENTA makes no sense with the current odds, so I guess small bet on LDLC is the way to go here.
My odds for this match: Penta 55:45 LDLC
This is also a tricky one, surprise surprise. Gotta side with Penta here though. These two did face off at the very end of last month and ahm Penta took it in a very close 2-1, however they had Weber playing there instead of Kairi, and I’d rate Kairi quite a bit higher than Weber and think Kairi so far for the Penta roster hasn’t been like jaw breaking WOW player, but he has definitely done well and I think with time he’ll only get better and better. Penta also have been putting up good results for what you’d expect from them, and of course we will be seeing them in the ESL Pro League ahead of Virtus Pro next season so that is just memes, so good for them indeed. That being said, on the other side of the coin we have LDLC who from the very start of their journey I thought they were overrated. Think there was way too much hype around LDLC, and right now they are struggling big time. LDLC lost to Spirit yesterday and overall just are not looking good result wise, however I am sure that they can upset Penta if Penta is off or they just go really nuts. LDLC has a good lineup, I like the Penta lineup a tad bit more, however LDLC can definitely play and what not, so do not count them out. This is also Operation Kinguin so you have to kinda measure and have realistic expectations about how much this means for both teams. Overall however, 65-35 in favor of Penta here, with Penta they tend to be really up and down however, so that is never good, however I’m hoping they show up here. Usually I’d probably give this like a 60-40 Penta, however the very poor results of LDLC just do not justify it for me, however form is temporary and class is permanent as they say, so gotta be careful.
5% Penta under 72%, otherwise 2% LDLC
My odds = 65-35 Penta
My risk = High
My bet = 5% Penta under 72%, otherwise 2% LDLC
My advice = Same as my bet
My odds for this match: Penta 65:35 LDLC
Eh Penta as Overdog is a scary thing. I actually think they have a pretty good roster, and should be able to go far with it, IF they can fix their consistencies, which is a big IF. I thought they were finding their feet, and then they had their really awful performance the other week that I predicted wrong. I honestly don’t know what to think about this game, as they looked incredibly poor. LDLC should have beaten Spirit last night, they should have closed it out on the 3rd map but made a few key mistakes in a few key areas. The last time these two played, it was incredibly close, and although Penta had weber, the two sides are still closer than the odds suggest right now. LOW on LDLC for me.
My odds for this match: Penta 60:40 LDLC
