Match Prediction

This matchup will be really tricky as we expect a really really tough and even matchup here between two phenomenal teams. FaZe had rejoined with their coach RobbaN who missed out on Blast and player Rain who just became father. So previous matches ahead of IEM is something we can't really take into consideration even though FaZe did well. However, coming into this they're going h2h against a team that's just looking like a train with it's next destination being the winner of IEM Katowice 2023. G2 have a 8 match winning streak, and haven't lost a map in the last 6 games with one of their opponents actually being FaZe. 

However, we believe that the streak will end today if FaZe plays this veto out well. Not only that but they have a very even map pool. With G2 being slight favorites on Nuke and Inferno. Mirage is something we consider being 45/55 in favor of FaZe though one map that we have to favor FaZe on is Ancient. It's also the one map that FaZe managed to beat G2 on in their matchup in the Blast World Final 14th of December 2022. A map that G2 definitely knows how to play though definitely did so much better ahead of a few updates and map updates on that map and it's a map that we've seen them vetoing a couple of times most recently. So for them to head into Ancient now is something we have to favor FaZe on whilst the odds are still at 2.04 on FaZe. Mainly because we don't really think that their gameplan and how well they've adjusted to all the changes on it is as evolved as FaZe. Mainly because as mentioned, they tend to veto it but also the last time we saw them play it was 14th of December which Faze won 16:4. Before that they played it twice in IEM RMR RIO 2022, lost against 1WIN 13:16 and then beat Ecstatic 16:0. Beating Ecstatic at that moment was a nobrainer either way so it doesn't really say too much. Other than the fact that they know how to play it to some extent. 

What we meant earlier with it being tricky, is that if FaZe would screw up the veto as we believe they did in their previous match against G2 and went for Inferno which is a great map for G2 and basically gave them both Nuke and Inferno which are in our opinion considered the two best maps for G2. 

This time we do believe we'll see another veto from FaZe. However, we'll wait for the veto and announce it as soon as we know at HeatoN's stream at twitch.tv/heaton.

But until then OUR betting prediction will be:
