forZe has definitely proven that they should not be underestimated this tournament by beating both NaVi in their opening match and then went on to play Spirit which they won 2:1 and it was definitely some beautiful cs to watch. Coming into this we hold Ence as favorites and as they should be. However at the same time as we hold Ence as favorites we must say that forZe will be getting a really good punish pick against Ence. As Ence will most likely veto Inferno and we'll see Overpass coming out from forZe. Not the best map perhaps for forze but still a map they're really good on. A map that Ence definitely knows how to play as you could see against Rare Atom yesterday but it was a mix of Ence playing good at the same time as RA looking a bit clueless and not the same RA as we saw Day 1.
The map veto we're expecting is the following:
ForZe veto Vertigo
Ence veto Inferno
ForZe pick Overpass
Ence pick nuke
ForZe veto Anubis
Ence veto Ancient
Decider - Mirage
We can definitely see this veto going a lot of diferent ways but the most likely outcome is that forze picks Overpass and Ence goes for Nuke which we definitely think are both good punish picks for both of the two teams. RA definitely has a better nuke tbf than forze as well as we don't really think that ForZe has accomplished anything on nuke against any good teams whatsoever compared to Ence and it was a lot of rounds that Ence should've won yesterday on Nuke that they didn't which is why it even went on to be as close as 16:12 to Ence though still a win for them. Which is why we will most likely be going for a hcp bet on ence here on nuke as well but if that's the case then we will edit the post afterwards so keep your eyes open for that!
For now however we will just be going for one thing which is ForZe to actually win their map pick. Not that we're too certain that they will win it. But rather taking advantage of the current odds as we can't justify the odds on them atm with this big of a punish pick.
So OUR betting prediction here will be:
