This is a tricky matchup. Two great teams going h2h and with the upperhand definitely being given to FaZe in this situation based on both of the two teams performance thus far. However, coming into this we can't really justify a moneyline bet on either of the two teams mainly because we believe the odds are pretty justified and correct and to bet on FaZe for example on 1.48 odds is just mad. As well as going for Vitality here with a stand-in even though Jackz have done well it's still a downgrade from Dupreeh on paper and especially if ure walking into a bo3 against FaZe.
Overall we believe that FaZe will come out swining just as in their previous matches and the one against Rooster for instance just looked a bit closer than it was because they were playing around. As for Vitality they have definitely impressed us with this lineup and to do this well with Jackz as a stand-in and how easily he adapted to everything.
However, as for the map veto we believe we'll see something like this:
Vitality veto Ancient
Faze veto Vertigo
Vitality pick Mirage
Faze pick Nuke
Vitaliy veto Anubis
Faze veto Overpass
FaZe will either go for Inferno or Nuke here tbf and we just don't see it going any other way than in favor of FaZe. They're the better team overall as individuals and as a team but also on both Inferno & Nuke and especially considering the circumstances. Which is key here in our opinion and one of the key reasons as to why we go this way. Not only that but we still don't really feel like Vitality has found their mojo yet and are still struggling a bit and if it's not for ZywOo showing up big time each game we wouldn't see them rolling this hard atm.
So for Vitality to even stand a chance here today ZywOo have to go insane and put up some big numbers. Either way we believe it will be a bit too hard on Inferno/Nuke
Which is why OUR betting prediction here will be:
