This one should be pretty straight foward. SK should be really disappointed in themselves if they manage to drop this and yes I am aware that NRG nearly beat NiP and realistically should have but I do not see a repeat here and I think it was a once off kinda thing. NRG are a decent side however no way do they compare with SK, they just have way too much firepower for NRG and even in the tactical department they are completely outmatched here. NRG will not get to play Cache either so that’s a blow for NRG. NRG have players that can impress at times but nothing similar to the likes of SK and this really should be straight forward. Only problem is that it is a BO1 after all and you never know, just like in the NiP match that was a close call. I’ll say this is a 80-20 and go 7%
My odds = 80-20 SK
My risk = High
My bet = 7% SK
My advice = Same as my bet
My odds for this match: SK Gaming 80:20 NRG eSports (duplicate)
Would be typical SK if they went into this game and either lost it or struggled, but they really should be taking a game like this. NRG have a chance on 3 maps. Cache, D2 and Cobble. If any of these maps come up, betting ICB on NRG or a tiny amount on them to win 12 rounds or whatever handicap you have on your own betting site would be a good bet. They had impressive plays against NiP and FaZe and this at least shows you they can win rounds. I do still think that SK will take this game but remember those maps I said, and proceed with caution if any of them come up.
My odds for this match: SK Gaming 65:35 NRG eSports (duplicate)
Pick the team with the lowest odds, place a small amount of money you don't mind losing.
As much as I’m impressed with how well NRG did so far, I don’t think they will be able to beat SK Gaming here, they did have a couple of closer matches against SK online, but this time the brazilians are looking great, besides that one loss against NiP of course. SK Gaming beat Cloud9 and FaZe very convincingly, in fact it was an absolute stomp, 16-2 against FaZe and 16-6 against Cloud9, they looked great.
NRG also had a couple of extremely close maps, but they keep choking, that 14-8 to 14-16 against NiP was just terrifying, they also had a lead against FaZe at some point and lost in a double overtime, those were the two close matches NRG had, but overall they went 0-4 with two terrible and very one sided losses against dignitas and Cloud9, it just seems like they have two decent players, an IGL and two bots. I’m still impressed that NRG were so close to beating FaZe and NiP, but that’s it, I doubt they would have any chance against SK Gaming, I think brazilians will take it with ease.
My odds for this match: SK Gaming 75:25 NRG eSports (duplicate)
