By all means and without taking too much credit away from forZe as you can't just beat navi with luck. But forZe played well at the same moment as NaVi played very sloppy. For instance, MAP 3, Inferno. Overall kills in forZe and NaVi was 91vs91 and if it wasn't for Shalfey going absolute ham on Ancient we just don't see it going the same way.
As for Spirit it's pretty much the same thing. While they played great CS we still reckon that Astralis played horrible cs. Overall very basic cs and no reactive cs whatsoever.
As for the map veto we expect the following:
ForZe veto Vertigo
Spirit veto Inf
ForZe pick Ancient / Overpass
Spirit pick Mirage
ForZe pick Anubis
Spirit veto Overpass
MAP: Overpass / Nuke
So the map veto is really unpredictable atm and it's hard to tell whether we will see forze going for Overpass or Ancient here. Either way we still think that Spirit are one level too big in this matchup and that they will come out victorious. Not easy at all and the maps will most likely be very even or at least MAP 1 which is forZe's map pick. While Spirit will most likely be going for Mirage, which is a map that forZe can play we still reckon that Spirit will be victorious on it as they definitely played great cs against Astralis on Mirage.
So as mentioned, this will definitely not be an easy grab for the boys in Spirit. However we consider them being the better team here and especially on LAN. Not only that but their type of playstyle is something we believe will go well against forZe and while NaVi had the upperhand a lot of the time and lost it we believe that forZe won't be able to adapt to the pace that we will see Spirit coming in with.
Which is why we'll be ending up with 2 bets here today so OUR betting prediction here will be:
