Group B will continue with another really interesting game between OpTic and Newbee. Those two teams are probably the most equal teams out of all in this tournament. They have had many ups and downs throughout the pro circuit season but now it’s time to face each other.
Sadly, OpTic gaming have little to no chance of directly qualifying for TI 8. This is due to the fact that they have little amount of qualification points.
Newbee on the other hand need just a little bit more in order to secure their invite. That’s why we believe that they might deliver the “bomb” here and try to finish at least as top 3.
In this match it will be hard to call a clear winner. Considering the recent results though, Newbee look just a little bit better overall and might be able to win this.
Optic gaming really needs to step up their game. If they manage to win here and get a higher placing in the upcoming Super Major, then maybe they could have the chance of getting to TI.
My odds for this match: NewBee 57:43 OpTic
My tip: NewBee 6
Newbee win with odds 1.6 or more.
Initially I was thinking to bet on Optic Gaming as 2.38 odds is attractive, but considering how strong Newbee was in MDL , taking down IG , OG with 2-0 and even Mineski with 2-0. I think buying their site will be safer. 2% on Newbee is good enough.
Optic Gaming is incredible stable against any team that belong to weak tier 2 or below, but they are still not strong as a tier 1 team. Newbee with quite a number of draft should get advantage in this match.
