Winner of Selfless / Winterfox will face Luminosity here in a BO3. Obviously, Luminosity are the strong favourites here as they are the better team, the odds seem quite accurate as well IMO (90-10). No matter the opponent, Luminosity should be able to get a quick 2-0 as they are so much better than both teams. Going with a max on Luminosity but make sure to skip once the odds really get out of hand.
My odds for this match: LG 90:10 Selfless
I hate doing to be decided matches as they are harder to go more into detail, however I’ve decided to do this one as it is a bit more straight to the point. No matter if Selfless or Winterfox is playing here, I feel like this is a match that LG should be winning. The problem with LG is that they do not seem to care as much about NA matches as they do in like European LAN’s, it’s been a trend with them for a long time now and it still appears to be happening, so that is a worrying factor. None the less, a match that should favor LG heavily, they are simply better in every shape compared to Selfless and Winterfox, and sure they might snatch out a map like Cache against LG, however otherwise, don’t see them upsetting LG here. If you’ve got a maxbet set, place it here, if not, skip or ICB on the underdog in hopes of an upset.
Maxbet LG here if got a set and they are below 95%, otherwise just skip/ICB
My odds = 85-15 LG
My risk = Low
My bet = Max on LG if they are below 95%, otherwise skip
My advice = If got a set and feeling riskier with maxes, place it here, otherwise skip/ICB
My odds for this match: LG 85:15 Selfless
Honestly don’t think it matters who LG faces here, it should be a comfortable win. I can see LG staying in their mode where they think they are good at Cache, and dropping it to selfless if they play them, but the only way WFX takes this is if they are forced to play with 150 ping again and don’t care. If this was a BO1, that’s fair enough, but LG don’t strike me as a side to take a cup like this anything but serious, and they will go all out for the win. LARGE on LG or SKIP, regardless of who they face, and as long as the odds aren’t past 90%, because even then you most likely won’t get any overpay.
My odds for this match: LG 80:20 Selfless
