This will probably be the match of the day you can’t miss. Once again, heavily skewed odds on Liquid. Now even though there’s value on OG we can’t really say that there’s enough compared to the options we have.
Liquid are definitely a team we expect to continue improving throughout 2023 as they’ve had phenomenal progress after Yekindar joined the team. However, these two had a h2h in the Blast World Finals that went the full way with OG winning map 1 and then Liquid winning map 2 & 3. Coming into this matchup we might as well see the same maps. However we believe to a 100% that they could win each others map pick just as their own. However, we believe that neither of the two teams are strong or consistent enough to just completely run their opponent over 2:0. They’re both two great teams where one might lack in a specific area. Such as Degster > oSee, Nexa > nitr0, but after that we have to say that the individual power is slightly better in Liquid compared to OG. flamez is a beast but neofrag and f1ku are way too inconsistent compared to the firepower of Yekindar, Elige and NAF. Which is why we still consider Liquid as favorites in this matchup and at the end of the day they should come out victorious. However we can’t really justify a bet on them here with the current odds.
Which is why we’ll be going for Over 2.5 Maps here @2.07 odds. Mainly because as mentioned we consider these two teams to be very even but also that the current odds on Liquid are terrible.
So OUR betting prediction here will be:
