The top 4 of EPICENTER is insane, I’m very excited for both semis and the first one already feels like it could be the grand final. SK Gaming vs Virtus.pro is a classic matchup at this point, Virtus.pro went 2-2 against SK Gaming on ESL One New York and already 2-0’d them here on EPICENTER, usually the matches between these two teams are extremely close and seeing how the previous ones went, I think it’s quite easy to predict the maps here, at least that’s what I think. We will definitely see a dust2 ban from Virtus.pro, and cache from SK Gaming, it leaves SK Gaming in a tricky situation as Virtus.pro will most likely pick nuke which is very bad for the brazilian side. SK Gaming will most likely pick train as it’s been their best map lately, then VP should remove overpass, and we would see either cobble on mirage, I think SK should pick mirage though. That leaves us with nuke, train and cobble/mirage, Virtus.pro should have an edge due to the nuke pick and therefore I’d go with them here, for some reason SK Gaming are the favorites on most bookies, maybe because of VP’s inconsistency, but overall VP looked great against SK lately, so I’d give them a chance again.
My odds for this match: VP 55:45 SK Gaming
Will make this quick as I’m exhausted. Will be a really close game I think as both sides can beat the other one, and also picking the veto is really hard. VP will remove D2 or Cache, depending on whether or not they veto first. My first guess would be D2, and then SK will remove Nuke or Cache. I actually can see them removing Cache, as I don’t think they think that VP will pick it. VP I can see then picking Cobble, or perhaps Mirage, due to the recent SK struggles on it. SK will then take Train. This then leaves Mirage, Overpass, Nuke. One of them will remove Nuke, and I can see the 3rd map being Overpass. I would say VP have the edge for Cobble just slightly, Train I would give to SK just a bit. The 3rd map it depends what we end up on. Nuke is totally random, Overpass I favour SK, Mirage I favour VP. This game can go either way but with VP underdogs most places, I will go LOW on them.
My odds for this match: VP 50:50 SK Gaming
