This is a toughie. Obviously Astralis are favored here and should be winning here, however right now they have not been producing the best CS for some while, both performance wise and result wise, however they have been running into problems as most of you know, for example at the major they had Glaive instead of Kjaerbye, and then Dupreeh had problems and Zonic had to play, 2 of the main 3 fraggers gone like that, can’t expect much. Here Astralis have their full lineup and honestly, I am excited for it, the Double D combo and now with Kjaerbye, that is so deadly on paper as long as they are on form and can keep it up consistently. I predict bright times ahead of Astralis, however when will we see these times? Will this event be the start, will the next one be? Who knows. Mouz is at like 20% right now which I do not agree, but I like since it could make a really nice bet. Mouz hasn’t been terrible, however there is rumors of roster changes and stuff, however you can never count out Niko and company. If Niko, Nex and ChrisJ goes off here and Astralis are quiet, Mouz have shown us time after time they are capable of upsetting. Of course, it will be very tough especially if Astralis are performing, however you never know which Astralis we’ll see. Mouz’s hours the past 2 weeks are really low, like I have more however they have been travelling so that is that.
5% Astralis under 72%, otherwise 2% Mouz
My odds = 65-35
My risk = High
My bet = 5% Astralis under 72%, otherwise 2% Mouz
My advice = Same as my bet
My odds for this match: Astralis 65:35 mouz
Man this match is tough, both teams couldn’t really practice that much lately, they had to attend a lot of events and Astralis couldn’t practice because dupreeh had to recover after his surgery, overall these two teams are pretty close skill wise, Astralis may seem better due to their previous achievements, but at the moment both teams are equally good.
So what makes this match tough is the fact that Astralis actually struggled a lot lately, not couting their matches with zonic/gla1ve as these don’t matter, but in the previous matches Astralis struggled against weaker teams, they lost against both Cloud9 and TSM, NiP on Dreamhack and dropped a map against CLG on ELEAGUE which is really bad as well.
mousesports played really well in the last few matches, they managed to beat Gamers2, FaZe and EnVyUs, the previous matches from few weeks back were not as good as they barely beat Echo Fox, went 1-1 against Na’Vi and lost against FlipSid3, but they seem to be better right now, still quite scary knowing that all their players have 20 hours played in the last two weeks, but they definitely have a chance to beat Astralis, better chance than 30%.
Just play the odds and place a small bet on mousesports, the current odds are pretty stupid so that what I would suggest.
My odds for this match: Astralis 60:40 mouz
Looking at the maps here, it should be a good game. You would have to favour astralis in this one, but we have barely seen them with their new 5 due to all the issues they have had. Mouz have not looked especially good either, and I think they will find it hard in this game. With the maps being Mirage, D2 and Cache, this one should be a cracker. The maps are good for both sides, and that will make this one interesting. Mirage you would have to say favours astralis. Mouz were beaten badly on it recently, and astralis always had good results on it. D2 is a map that mouz are famous for, and astralis used to be. They lost it badly against Gambit recently, and with d2 being the number 1 upset map, this one could go to 3. Cache is good for both of them, but overall I would favour astralis slightly on this one. The odds for me are 70-30/65-35 and I will bet according to that.
My odds for this match: Astralis 70:30 mouz
