So to put it blunt Penta should win this especially seeing how it is a BO3. Both teams have been really up and down form wise as of recent however so that’s that. Both played yesterday, Pride played Kinguin where they should have won first map but choked an 11:4 lead I believe and then then they just got destroyed 2nd map so yeah. Meanwhile Penta put up a really strong fight vs Godsent, winning the first map, but then losing the next two in close fashion, could have won the series really. The thing with Penta is they will go from nearly beating Godsent and probably should have won that to losing to teams like Pride, and I do not even rate Pride, do not think they are very good to be honest. Pride in my eyes are just a decent side, a lowerish tier 3 however while Penta is a mid tier 2 team, and really should not be losing here but it’s Penta, oh Penta. If you judge by hours it does seem like Penta are putting in the work, however so are Pride so that’s that. Overall yes Penta should take this with like a 2-1 scoreline perhaps, however this is Penta and you can never count them our nor rely on them, so it’s a double edged sword essentially. 70-30 Penta here.
5% Penta under 77%, otherwise 2% Pride
My odds = 70-30 Penta
My risk = High
My bet = 5% Penta under 77%, otherwise 2% Pride
My advice = Same as my bet
My odds for this match: Penta 70:30 Pride
I guess this will be another underdog bet for me, I keep bashing Pride for their terrible results and for constantly losing almost every single match, but most of these matches are actually close, the recent best of two against Kinguin went pretty well and Pride almost beat them 2-0, they also beat LDLC and upset MK, so overall not that bad even though they won like 10-15% of their matches, it also seems like Pride are putting more and more time into practicing against better teams and most of their players are pretty high on hours played in the last two weeks, perhaps we may see some better results anytime soon.
PENTA are the clear favorites here but they also had few hiccups recently, they lost both matches against Team X and got 2-0’d by AGG, not to mention that 1-1 against Bpro who are pretty bad and PENTA should be beating these teams easily, but well, it happens sometimes, so these are the bad results, but PENTA also managed to get few decent wins, they beat LGR, LDLC, Escape and Delete, also played a fairly close series against GODSENT yesterday, so they can still keep up against better teams.
As much as I don’t like Pride and just betting on them in general, I feel like the odds should be closer to 65-35~ maybe even 60-40 here, another small bet on the underdog.
My odds for this match: Penta 65:35 Pride
Penta as overdogs are a scary thing. Kind of like when Kristyboi suggests you bet med on a game. You just know the chance is high your skins are going to wave bye bye to you. This game here feels like one of those games. Pride are a hard side to understand. In the majority of their games they seem to play really well for the most part but then just fail at closing it out. This has happened countless times. Look at their game yesterday against Kinguin. How they lost the first map there I will never know. It is incredible how they manage to do it. Going into this one, I don’t feel especially good about either side. I do feel that Penta will take this, but below 20% on Pride, just ICB them if you feel like it or SKIP.
My odds for this match: Penta 80:20 Pride
