A list of recent matches this team has played, green indicates a win and red a loss. Blue is a draw/cancelled
SK have had pretty mixed form recently and going into this event, people are actually not really looking at them as favourites to take it. I still think at the event they will raise their game and take it but it might be close. OpTic have been looking really good lately. They took out both C9 and SK in recent BO3’s, and will go into this game full of confidence. I think that a BO1 vs SK will be tough for them, as the maps they could actually take them down on, is quite small, and I really hope OpTic avoid Mirage or D2. Overall though, at these current odds, you almost are forced to go on OpTic. I do expect SK to take it, but OpTic have proved lately, when you don’t expect them, they can deliver.
My odds for this match: SK Gaming 65:35 OpTic Gaming
This is a rematch as OpTic beat SK Gaming 2-1 not too long ago, this time we have a best of one and the upset potential is even bigger, but well, would it still be an upset? I mean, OpTic wrecked them 16-3 on overpass and 16-10 on cobblestone, perhaps this match is way closer than people think, and given it’s a best of one, OpTic’s chancer are way bigger this time, I’d say this match is like 55-45 for SK Gaming because of their experience, but OpTic can easily take this one if they do well in the veto process.
Overall both teams performed extremely well lately, SK Gaming lost a couple of matches to Immortals, Renegades and Liquid, the loss against Renegades and Liquid was purely because they had SHOOWTIME instead of fer, but still, they lost 16-0 on dust2 which is just ridiculous.
OpTic dropped few maps here and there, but I don’t even remember the last series they lost, they’ve been winning pretty much all of their matches and looked insane, I was very sceptical when they picked up tarik, but it seems like that change worked out very well for OpTic and they are just insane right now, easily #2 team in North America.
That being said, OpTic is my pick here, they have a really good shot here and the odds are just great.
My odds for this match: SK Gaming 55:45 OpTic Gaming
