A list of recent matches this team has played, green indicates a win and red a loss. Blue is a draw/cancelled
As you probably know I tend to skip VP’s matches due to their inconsistency and whatnot, but this is an extremely important match for them and they are up against a mediocre opponent, if they lose here they will be playing in ESEA Premier next season and that would be just ridiculous, additionally PENTA lost tabseN few days ago and practiced with CRUC1AL instead, but due to roster locks on ESEA they will have to play with tabseN again today, that is another reason to bet on Virtus.pro.
Looking at the maps, we have few that would highly favor Virtus.pro, maps such as mirage, train, inferno and maybe few others, that’s one thing, another thing is that Virtus.pro are actually playing well right now, they won Starladder few days ago, beat a couple of decent teams there, teams such as Na’Vi, Dobry&Gaming, HellRaisers and Worst Players, three of those teams are way better than PENTA and Virtus.pro beat them quite easily, so I’m pretty sure beating PENTA won’t be that hard for them.
That’s pretty much it, Virtus.pro should be able to win this match quite convincingly, they’ve been playing way better than PENTA lately and this match is way too important for them to lose it.
My odds for this match: VP 85:15 Penta
VP after LAN with incredibly high odds? I would avoid betting on VP at these odds all day long. They are a side that seems to come alive when they are the underdog, and seems to fall down when they are favoured to win. Famously you should avoid VP in online matches unless they are below 60%, and they most certainly are not in this match up. I do still expect VP to take this, as they are for sure the better team, but Penta are a side that have had the biggest of upsets before, namely against Navi on Cobble, and Envy on Overpass. Don’t risk it this game, ICB on Penta.
My odds for this match: VP 75:25 Penta
