A list of recent matches this team has played, green indicates a win and red a loss. Blue is a draw/cancelled
I’m kinda late with my prediction, so I’m just going to state some facts here. The first and probably most important fact would be that Virtus.pro always remove nuke and they played it only once over the last 3 months and I’m sure they regret not removing it in that one match, they got demolished by NiP and played like absolute bots, the first half went 13-2 in favor of NiP who played with a stand in which makes it even more ridiculous. Another thing is that Virtus.pro suck online and everyone knows that, they even got wrecked by FlipSid3 yesterday and man, that’s a shitty result.
Astralis are not that good on nuke either, but definitely better than VP, they beat ENVYUS 16-5 and the frenchies are really good on nuke too, other than that, Astralis wrecked NewStyle 16-2 and lost two close maps to dignitas. Astralis clearly feels confident on nuke, it was their pick after all and they definitely prepared something special for Virtus.pro here, they should have an edge and I’d bet on them here.
My odds for this match: VP 45:55 Astralis
Double header today between these two, should be a good one, but I also feel it will be one hard to call. VP have been so random recently. They beat Navi on Cobble one day, and then got rekt by a really bad Fside team the next. Predicting how they are going to be feels like mission impossible right now. Astralis as well, have been pretty up and down. They did look good yesterday but they have been inconsistent for a while. Looking at the maps today, Nuke then Mirage, are pretty odd picks to me. I have barely seen VP play Nuke, and astralis have not played it that much or looked that good on it. Overall though, I do favour astralis for Nuke, with Mirage largely depending on which VP shows up. If the good one comes, I would favour VP there.
My odds for this match: VP 40:60 Astralis
