5 match winning streak coming in here. After winning the Blast World Finals in the end of 2022 and finishing the year with a top-performance and to also start the year with a win even though it wasn't a team as strong as NaVi, BIG are still a force to be reckoned with. They're definitely good and well-oriented as a team and even though it got pretty close on Mirage 16:14 in favor of G2 they still managed to clutch it out and beat BIG 2:0.
To now go up against NaVi who we believe have a seemingly weak map pool right now and we're not really certain how they will overcome G2 here. As NaVi's current goto veto is Vertigo. Which leaves Anubis open, which is also a map they dislike. Whereas NaVi will most likely be going for something such as Mirage. A map npl doesn't seem too comfortable on but also a map that NaVi as a team didn't look that great on in their match against NiP and considering that G2 is by all means the better team between NiP and G2 on Mirage we believe that NaVi are going up against an even tougher opponent this time on that map.
Which is why we think that NaVi will have a very rough time in todays matchup. They're definitely not at the same level as G2 right now as they just gained the addition of NPL after having a few matches played with him. Their map pool is terrible right now in a BO3 format. S1mple isn't showing up in the same way as we're used to.
So with that being said, we think that G2 are performing in a better way in all aspects right now and their map pool is considerably better as well and as of right now we even consider their nuke being much better than NaVi as well. So what we're looking at is G2 having the possibility to pick either Anubis or Inferno which is two really weak maps for NaVi so by looking at the map pool we already consider it being really favorable for G2 and we can't really justify the current odds on G2 as they're way too high in our opinion.
So OUR betting prediction here will be:
- G2 Moneyline (To Win) @1.75
