Stats for the SK Gaming and OpTic Gaming as they've appeared on Tipify
A list of recent matches this team has played, green indicates a win and red a loss. Blue is a draw/cancelled
Really good double header here and one that could potentially go either way. The maps are Cobble and train. I would have to say looking at the maps, OpTic have a higher chance of taking Cobble than Train. They are good on both maps but the record of SK on train is really impressive, and they have had a few dodgy results on Cobble recently. OpTic recently had 2 really poor losses on cobble, before a good win against Liquid, in a game where they were being smashed. SK managed to find some form on it recently, taking down NiP, dig and NRG. Train, OpTic managed to smash Liquid on it but also lost to SK. SK have won virtually all of their recent games, except for one random poor loss to TSM. I have to favour SK on both maps here, but OpTic have a chance on both too.
My odds for this match: SK Gaming 60:40 OpTic Gaming
We’re back with the good ol’ classic NA matchups, this one is one of the most interesting matchups as their matches are always pretty close, we couldn’t get better maps as well, both cobblestone and train are the maps that OpTic could win, not necessarily right now as they’ve been looking quite poor lately. This is train and if I were to bet on SK Gaming one of those maps, I would definitely go with train. SK Gaming were undefeated on train for over 5 months which is INSANE, probably the best record in the history of CS:GO, surprisingly the team to end their streak was TSM who even played with a stand in if I recall correctly, that’s ridiculous, but SK Gaming are insane on train and even though they almost lost to OpTic before on that map, they should be able to have a slightly easier game this time.
OpTic are insane on train as well, they even wrecked some of the best European teams on it in the past, their previous games against SK Gaming and other top NA teams were very good as well, not to mention how insane mixwell and NAF-FLY are on this map, so it’s pretty scary to bet against OpTic here, but I think SK Gaming should have a decent advantage coming into this match, and I feel that they will take it.
My odds for this match: SK Gaming 65:35 OpTic Gaming
