Will make this one quick as I’m exhausted. Going into this game, I have to heavily favour SK. G2 have been looking really shaky the last few games and were honestly a bit fortunate to get this far. Their level is so hard to predict, it is so up and down but if they can hit their peak tomorrow, and smithz can hit something, you never know. Looking at the maps, I believe it is each side has 1 veto. So therefore, G2 will remove Mirage, and SK Cache. Then G2 will pick D2, and SK most likely Train. There is a chance they will take Cobble or Overpass, but I feel that is a tad unlikely. Then we should see G2 remove Overpass if it is still in, and SK removing Nuke. The third map should then be cobble. I do believe with D2 being in most likely, we will see 3 maps and then is anyone’s game. At these odds right now, I have to go LOW on G2, although I do feel that SK will take it, G2 do have a massive advantage on 1 map.
My odds for this match: SK Gaming 65:35 G2 Esports
Normally I would hesitate here, but with the way Gamers2 have been playing lately, I think it’s safe to say that SK Gaming should be favored here, they are also not as good as they used to be, but they are still consistently good, while Gamers2 keep losing to weaker teams. So the scary thing about Gamers2 is that they keep losing to weaker teams but also wreck stronger opponents, recently they tied lots of matches against teams like Godsent, Virtus.pro, NiP, Na’Vi and dignitas, played really bad on ESL One New York though, didn’t even win a single map as they lost to Liquid, OpTic and Astralis.
SK Gaming were very dominant this year and were ranked as the best team in the world for at least half of 2016, they are not that good anymore, but I’d still rank them as #2 or #3 team in the world, they recently beat HellRaisers, lots of North American teams, tied against fnatic and got 2-0’d by Virtus.pro, not the best results, but they still had a lot of very one sided maps, that’s actually their biggest advantage against Gamers2, all they have to do is just ban cache and dust2 and they should be good to go.
I’m kinda affraid of nuke here, SK Gaming are not very good on it and we will most likely see it, but the rest of the maps should be better for SK Gaming in my opinion so I’d try a small bet on them here, pretty risky though.
My odds for this match: SK Gaming 55:45 G2 Esports
