Classic matchup between Space Soldiers and Spirit, surprisingly Spirit have never lost a series to Space Soldiers, they are 7 out of 9 maps in 2016 and that’s pretty insane, this time it’s a bit harder as Space Soldiers are looking very strong, they won WESG Qualifiers in Dubai, not too impressive as they had no competition there, but they also did very well on previous events such as Dreamhack Qualifiers and ASUS ROG Summer 2016 where they beat Epsilon, Millenium, Tricked, Escape and 2-0’d dignitas in a very convincing fashion.
Same story with Spirit, they’ve been very dominant lately, managed to beat a lot of great tier 2 teams, although I feel like they struggled a bit here and there, multiple overtimes against teams like AGG and Epiphany Bolt, 1-2 loss against ENCE and Rogue, but thety also managed to beat ENVYUS 16-6 on cobblestone which is great. I never really liked Spirit for their inconsistency but it seems like they’ve been getting more consistent lately, so that’s good.
Well, I’m not entirely sure here, I really feel like Space Soldiers have a good shot here and can easily take this match, but Spirit’s amazing record makes me wonder and I really don’t know what to do at this point, I guess going with Spirit would be a better idea since Space Soldiers just came back from a lan event, so let’s try with a small bet on Spirit here.
My odds for this match: Space Soldiers 45:55 Spirit
SS looked hungover from LAN earlier and didn’t look at the top of their game. They had a tiring few days and it is no real surprise they are like that. Spirit have been looking pretty good in their last few games and have been again improving their consistency. These two sides have had close games before and it is not out of the realms of possibilities for SS to raise their game and take this but if I had to pick a winner, it would be Spirit and I would go LOW on them to take this game.
My odds for this match: Space Soldiers 40:60 Spirit
