Today, we are going to see an interesting match between SK Gaming and Team Liquid. The Brazilian team is one of ESL One New York 2017 favorites. They showed a good performance in the group stage and defeated Cloud9 and Natus Vincere. They got into the play off with 2-0 result. Team Liquid also were rather good in the group stage. They lost their first match against Astralis, but due to winning Virtus.pro they got the second chance to get to the play off. They analyzed the misted in the match against Danish team, and managed to take revenge in a match against Astralis, so in the decisive fight they defeated gla1ve and his team with 2-1 score and got to the play off. Now, the first opponent in play off that may prevent Team Liquid from winning ESL One New York 2017 is SK Gaming. It should be mentioned that in the previous meeting of SK and Liquid, the Brazilian team won. This match is a coin-flip. The percentage for win of each team is about 50%, so it’s hard to make some forecasts. From the other point, each bet is a risk. Despite the fact that SK have not been in a good condition recently, they demonstrated a good game in SK, and I think the bet should be made in their favor. However, the bet should not exceed 5% of your balance. If you win, you can earn good money, but you don’t lose a lot if the bet won’t work. As for the spectators and analysts, according to HLTV.org, 57,7% of spectators are confident in SK Gaming win, and the coefficient for their win is about ~1,45 depending on a bookmaker.
Today, an interesting match between Gambit eSports and Heroic is played. The odds in this game obviously favor Gambit. First of all, the Kazakh players take the fifth position in the world rating according to HLTV.org. Secondly, they are in a better condition than Heroic. Gambit did not lose any of 4 last matches. They either won or got a draw result. As for Heroic, they take 17th position in the world rating according to HLTV.org. Their history of the matches is worse than Gambit’s. They won only one game out of the last 4. It should be mentioned, that they lost of the matches with 1 – 16 score, which shows that they are not well-prepared for competitions.
I think that players should bet on Gambit eSports. This match isn’t hard to analyze and win money. Most of the spectators agree with me. 66,1% of them made a bet on Gambit.
However, I would not recommend to make a bet bigger than 10% from your balance, as Heroic still can surprise their opponents.
Today, an interesting match between BIG, a new member of professional Major-arena, and Immortals, a pro team, is going to be played. BIG demonstrated great results in the group stage of PGL Major Krakow and became the best team taking the first place in tournament table with 3-0 statistics. Immortals in their turn took 7th position in the table with 3-2 score.
There are no doubts in a great condition of BIG. In all winning matches they defeated such teams as FaZe Clan, Cloud9 and SK Gaming. European mix FaZe was defeated by BIG with 16:8 score, Cloud9 lost the match against the team with 16:11 score, and SK Gaming with 16:14.
Immortals, in their turn, defeated Vega Squadron with 16:6 score, Natus Vincere with 16:10 score and FlipSid3 Tactics with the same score. The Brazilian team was beat by Astralis with 19:17 score and SK Gaming with 16:9.
Currently, BIG look better than Immortals, but we should not forget that European team has no experience in playing on such big arenas. Because of that, the team may be under a moral pressure which will prevent them from showing the best game, while Immortals will feel more confident. Also, we should not forget that the group stage not always shows the real condition of the teams.
I think that BIG demonstrated great performance during PGL Major Krakow 2017, but they will hardly go further than quarter final, as Immortals is more experienced team. Besides, during a day-off the Brazilian team could analyze and fix the mistakes.
In this situation, the results of the match can be rather unexpected, but taking into consideration all the circumstances, I think that it will be better to bet on Immortals.
All matches are interesting in the list of matches today but the battle between SK Gaming and Astralis cannot be missed. This match is as classic in the world of eSports as the match between Real Madrid and FC Barcelona in the football world.
Obviously, SK Gaming has more chances to win in the upcoming matchup. The Brazilians are at the peak of their shape at the moment. This means that besides high-grade personal skills of each SK Gaming player, the team has a row of prepared strategies, which says about the full readiness for the match against the Danes. Remembering the previous match between SK and Astralis, which was hosted at PGL Major Krakow, it is worth to notice that the Brazilians won with a huge lead. They finished the game with a score 16:8 and three of five players had a positive statistic. coldzera can be marked in a special way, he has a 25+ statistic and the rate in 2.08 points, according to HLTV.org. It is, also, worth to consider that all players of Astralis had a negative statistic.
As for Astralis, they were participating with the similar performance as SK did during the whole Major tournament. However, the Brazilians showed themselves in a better way in the last matchup between two teams. What is more, Astralis can be morally depressed due to the last match against SK.
I insistently recommend to bet on SK Gaming as their ambition to win is undoubted. SK achieved five victories at large tournaments over the last three months and are not going to give away the championship at PGL Major Krakow so easy.
The teams met for the last time during ESL One Genting 2017, where Misery and co got a champion title. We also remember this tournament for the match where Digital Chaos defeated Virtus.Pro in the semifinal with 2:0 score. After that, the teams have not met yet. This event is important for both teams, as this is one of the last chances to get a direct invite to The International 7. Although the bookmakers give a significant preference to Virtus.Pro (1.36) while Planet Odd have only 2.89, I would not be so confident in easy win of CIS players. Still, VP should win a match however it may not be so easy to get.
OG have already lost their opening match, and today they will be the first opponents for Natus Vincere. However, their loss should not influence the result of this match. It should be mentioned that this will be the first LAN-tournament since the International 6 for the Ukrainian Dota 2 roster. This tournament means a lot for Dendi&Co, but I think you should not doubt in the winning of OG. My forecast is OG win with 2:1 score.
One of the first confrontations of EPICENTER: Moscow Season 2 second day is Team Liquid vs LGD.fy. Chinese players have already won match against Kiev Major champions OG although their result was quite surprising. However, this is going to be the first match for Liquid on this championship. Super and the company got through the regional qualifiers, while KuroKy and the company received a direct invite. Despite the unexpected win over OG, it is hard to tell whether LGD.fy are the favorites in this match as Liquid have won SL i-League Invitational recently. That tournament took place in China where three representatives from Tianxia participated. My forecast for this match is Liquid win.
Two incredibly powerful and equal opponents will face in this match, however, Newbee are not in the best form, which is proved by their recent results: the 3th-4th place at StarLadder i-League Invitational #2, the 9th-16th place at The Kiev Major 2017 and, also, the 5th-6th place at qualifications to EPICENTER: Moscow 2017 and DOTA Summit 2017. In its turn, Team Secret looks incredibly powerful and even the replacement of pieliedie has not made an impact on the European mix. Despite last places at The Kiev Major 2017, the roster continues to prove that the loss against Brazilians was only an accident but not a trend. I prefer Team Secret in this couple, however, Newbee will have to win one map.
Evil Geniuses are famous for their awful performances in first matches of a tournament, despite the fact that sometimes they play against outsiders. Team Faceless can’t be called outsiders in view of the 5th-8th place at The Kiev Major 2017, so guys from Southeast Asia have a little more chances to win. It is, also, worth to notice that none of the teams have played official matches in a new patch yet. Having summed up all factors, I bet on the victory of Team Faceless with a score 2:1.
Everything’s easy in this match. The strongest team of the group stage will play against the weakest one and unknown participant. Team Secret who took the first place of the group stage with 3-0 score will definitely win. A new Brazilian team that took 16th place in the group stage will play against them. I think, that Brazilians will take 16th place in the tournament table as well.
