This is a betting against what I think is going to happen prediction. I do fancy the chances for the Brazilian side to take this game, but C9 at 30% odds, considering they are one of the best NA sides, is honestly ludicrous. The Brazilian side have played two easy BO1’s so far and came through both of them as you would have expected. I say the Liquid one was easy because Liquid are not really in a good place for the most part right now. C9 have the players that can go off and carry a game to Tstorm, and we have really not seen enough from Tstorm to warrant these kinds of odds. We saw in their games at the LAN before this, they still have weak maps and lots of weaknesses, and C9 for sure have a chance here. As long as they are below 40%, I’d drop 3% on them.
My odds for this match: TStorm 60:40 Cloud9
Alrighty gotta be quick here, overslept therefor this is a bit late, apologies on that. Ahm this is a tricky game, I have no doubt in my mind that C9 can easily upset Tempo, especially since Tempo seem to be a team that are hot and cold and does depend on just overall how they are feeling, historically at least. Cloud9 are no pushovers, we saw that yesterday, aside from their horrible T sides vs CLG, we saw a good spark in their players and their CT sides were really strong, however once again, can not ignore the fact that their T sides appear to be non existant and I feel like TempoStorm are a team that will punish that, hard. TS still comes across as a team that struggles to close out matches quite a bit, especially when under pressure so that is always a aspect of what can happen. I feel like yes we are getting significant improvement from TS, and they just seem to be improving and improving, and I do think that they should and will take this BO3, however if C9 do decide to play, they are top 3 NA for a reason. Slemmy has been showing great signs, once again on the Ct side, however he only has had what, a week or so to play together with them and it’s impressive so far. Overall, odds here are a bit hard, however 65-35 in favor of TS I feel is about right. If C9’s T sides were not as bad as I saw them yesterday, I’d put this at 60-40, but since it is a possibility that they get like 1-2 T rounds on every map, it’s worrying.
5% TS under 72%, otherwise 2% C9
My odds = 65-35 TS
My risk = High
My Bet = 5% TS under 72%, otherwise 2% C9
My advice = Same as my bet
My odds for this match: TStorm 65:35 Cloud9
Quick predictions since there is not much time left, basically I think that Cloud9 played very well against CLG in both matches but it was definitely CLG playing way worse than they usually do, it seemed like they couldn’t close these games out and had a decent advantage on few maps but basically threw it away. I wouldn’t give Cloud9 too much credit for beating them, their match against Luminosity was terrible and it showed that Cloud9 are not “back” to their top shape, they were just a bit lucky against CLG.
Tempo Storm are the clear favorites obviously, they won CEVO Season 9 Professional Finals and beat a ton of great teams there, also crushed Liquid and NRG on this Dreamhack and they are looking hot, they should be able to beat Cloud9, however I think there is a chance for Cl;oud9 to upset them today, not very likely to happen but still possible.
Everything will come down to the map veto process, Tempo Storm should be fine as long as they get to play on Cache/Mirage because these are the maps C9 struggled on. I’d suggest a low to medium bet on Tempo Storm in this matchup.
My odds for this match: TStorm 70:30 Cloud9
