Match Prediction

These two teams actually had a BO1 h2h in the beginning in the play-in which Cloud9 as expected won 16:5 and we expected the same outcome this time even though it's a BO3 format. There's literally no value in going for either moneyline nor going for Cloud9 to win 2:0 based on the current odds. However, knowing that they'll either go for Mirage or Overpass here we just highly consider Cloud9 being so much better on both maps. It's two really weak maps for IHC as you could see the previous match on Mirage but also while watching IHC play Liquid yesterday on Overpass. Whereas OVP is a really strong map for Cloud9. 

So based on the fact that Cloud9 will get a really strong punish pick but also knowing that they're not only stronger individuals but also a much better team in general we have to be going for Cloud9 on their map. 

The map veto we expect is the following: 
IHC veto Vertigo
Cloud9 veto Nuke
IHC pick Inferno
Cloud9 pick Overpass
IHC veto Mirage
Cloud9 veto Anubis
Decider - Ancient

Even though Inferno might not be the best map overall for Cloud9 we still think that the skill-gap when it comes down to it as you could see against Liquid yesterday when IHC has a strong lead they really struggle to close out the game, just as against furia on mirage. It's a team that has a lot of potential but isn't really there yet to compete against teams with the caliber such as Cloud9.

Which is why OUR betting prediction here will be:
