FUT Esports and 100 Thieves will face off in the Omega Bracket Quarterfinals of VALORANT Champions Tour 2023: LOCK//IN São Paulo. Perhaps, the North American team did not live up to expectations at the start of the championship, but still came out unscathed and escaped with a slight fright.
In turn, FUT Esports surprised with a too confident victory over Rex Regum Qeon, although Pearl still had to work hard. However, I would not think that the Turkish team has at least some chances, because they simply do not exist.
I'm not sure that 100 Thieves will close the series with a dry score, after all, the team gave the card to the Chinese, and in general almost lost. And yet here the North American team is the undisputed favorite.
FUT Esports Uniform
The fourth team in the European ranking won a couple of local championships last season. However, in the off-season, FUT Esports noticeably slowed down, in particular, taking last place in the Red Bull Home Ground #3.
Nevertheless, at the start of VALORANT Champions Tour 2023: LOCK//IN São Paulo, the Turkish team even somehow unexpectedly dealt with Rex Regum Qeon, making them believe for a minute that the guys have a chance.
But I dare to upset that FUT Esports will have a very hard time in the next match, where it will no longer be possible to play the first number.

Prediction for the match FUT Esports — 100 Thieves
Last time the teams played on Haven and Bind maps. However, now the latter will not be at all, while the Turkish team can ban Haven again.
However, even under such circumstances, FUT Esports will have little chance. I'll save the defeat, because the Turks can do a miracle, but in general, the North American team is asking for victory.
Therefore, in this case, I would recommend betting 100 Thieves on the victory of the team.
According to leading bookmakers predictions, the team 100 Thieves are the favorite with average odds 1.094 at the moment. Respectively, bookmakers consider FUT Esports to be the outsider of the match with odds on a victory in the sum of about 6.592.
