This matchup is a rematch from IEM Oakland where Heroic actually managed to upset SK Gaming in a best of one match on cobblestone, the lineups were obviously different as SK Gaming didn’t have felps and Heroic didn’t have JUGI back then, this time SK Gaming are in a better spot as they are much better now, while Heroic are doing kinda bad, they recently lose against Rogue, Vega Squadron and barely beat iGame 2-1. SK Gaming on the other hand, managed to make it to the grand final of Dreamhack Masters Las Vegas where they lost to Virtus.pro, they’ve been doing very well in general lately and as I mentioned in the previous predictions – they are my favorites to win this event, so I don’t see them actually losing to Heroic here. SK Gaming is my pick, not as risky as the others but still not a safe match, so I’d go with a medium bet this time.
My odds for this match: SK Gaming 70:30 Heroic
I find it hard to believe SK will go 0-3 here against Heroic and as long as the Brazilian roster avoid Nuke, and perhaps Overpass, I fail to see another map that Heroic can take them on. Small chance for Cobble as well. Mirage, Cache. Inferno should all be gone, so we actually might have to end up on a map that Heroic can play too. Cobble would be a likely one, and that does have good upset potential on, but at the same time, I just can’t see SK losing this many games. The T side of Heroic can suffer sometimes and against a well organised SK, I feel that’s where they will come undone. LOW on SK for me.
My odds for this match: SK Gaming 65:35 Heroic
