This H2H match has always been close but always went in favour of Astralis. G2 had a nice win against C9 although I was extremely surprised about their mapveto, why did they ban Mirage over Cache against C9? That’s a good question and I have no answer to that. G2 are known for a strange mapveto which doesn’t favour them at all, they always end up with maps they’re not favoured on and against a team like Astralis, it will lose you the BO3. Astralis are good on all maps but Cobblestone, this will obviously be their first ban as usual. It’s hard to predict Astralis at this point, sure they destroyed Method but that was far from surprising as Method are a tier3 team.
The H2H has always favoured Astralis and I think it won’t be any different today. Like I said, G2 tend to decide a match with their mapveto and ban / pick the wrong maps and simply lose the BO3 due to this. Like I said, Astralis will ban Cobblestone and G2 should ban Mirage, after that it could go all ways, Astralis can pick Cache / Overpass, G2 can pick Train and the 3rd map could be Dust2 / Inferno. I do think Titan will pick up Train as this is a map Astralis aren’t exactly good on. Astralis should win this 2:1 when we look at the 3rd map, Dust2 or Inferno.
Like I said, Astralis should win this 2:1 or maybe even 2:0, as of now, the odds aren’t that bad for a low bet on Astralis so that’s what we will be doing.
My odds for this match: G2 30:70 Astralis
