Very interesting matchup, although I’m affraid TSM will get smashed here as they are missing their best player and will use desi as a stand in, on top of that, Cloud9 managed to get great maps which they pretty much always win against teams of TSM’s caliber, additionally, all C9’s players currently live in a team house and they just play CS all day long, while TSM couldn’t even practice too much because Semphis wasn’t in US, so literally everything is perfectly set up for C9 to win this match.
Looking at the results, Cloud9 are 17-1 on mirage which is just INSANE, the only match they lost was against ENVYUS, other than that, Cloud9 beat pretty much ever single North American team. TSM looked alright on mirage, they are 5-4 and lost their last 3 matches, so not that great actually. Dust2 is even worse for TSM, they didn’t win a single match on it, they are currently 0-5 and didn’t even play against any great dust2 teams, they lost to Echo Fox, OpTic, Renegades and even Selfless, while Cloud9 lost to NRG, NiP and Echo Fox, but won like 15 other matches, so once again Cloud9 are the clear favorites, as expected.
I think we will see an easy 2-0 for Cloud9 here, great maps for them and they look way better than TSM, the stand in situation also favors Cloud9. I suggest two small bets on Cloud9 here, could try a medium bet on dust2 honestly, TSM are really bad on it.
My odds for this match: Team SoloMid 30:70 Cloud9
Meh, I wish Twistz could have played here but unfortunately he cannot and TSM with a stand-in are a lot different. I really think that Mirage will be a really close map, but looking at the record of C9 on this map, seeing how TSM are going to take this one is unlikely. If TSM can take a pistol round though, expect this to be a clencher. D2 is the biggest upset map, but it just doesn’t really feel like we will be seeing one today. For some reason, Semphis and co are just not that good on it. They did get 14 rounds against C9, and had some other close games against decent sides, but just couldn’t close one out. I will be doing something kind of unusual tonight. I will be going on both sides on their opposites map. LOW C9 for Mirage, ICB on TSM for Mr Upset map and hope for the best.
My odds for this match: Team SoloMid 40:60 Cloud9
