Both teams are looking extremely good as of late. Cloud9 seem back on track and know how to play again, a quite convincing 2-0 in EEPL against Renegades and they even managed to 1-1 against Luminosity which is quite a thing considering the map being Overpass. Cloud9 had a really impressive comeback on this map on their CT side after being down 4-11, they managed to win it 16-13. The players who seem to be stepping up recently are Stewie2k and Freakazoid, they seem to be fragging quite consistently along with Skadoodle and Shroud and that makes this team extremely scary, n0thing is the only one who’s really struggling as of now although he is the igl so that might explain why. Overall, Cloud9 are looking good.
OpTic, probably my favourite NA team, they have so much fragging power and are looking extremely good, they are currently first in the EEPL of NA with 10 wins and 2 losses, wins over AGG, Cloud9, CoL, Splyce and Winterfox, they did drop a map against Winterfox earlier this week and lost against Renegades on Cobblestone, these don’t really matter that much overall. OpTic as of now seem to be becoming better and better everytime they play, this team looks extremely promising and I can’t wait to see more from them.
A really close match, the most recent H2H match was at EEPL and ended in a 2-0 in favour of OpTic, C9 at that point weren’t as good as they are now so I’m expecting this to be a lot closer. I think that Cloud9 may be able to win this one as they are looking better than they did back in the EEPL matches against OpTic, those matches were already close (especially on Cache) and overall Cloud9 seem a bit stronger on most maps. I think that Mirage, Train, Dust2 and Overpass are maps that favour Cloud9 quite a bit, Cache is 50-50 and Cobblestone and Inferno favour OpTic a lot. This could turn out in a 2-0 or 2-1 to Cloud9 depending on the maps, let’s just play the odds for this one.
My odds for this match: Cloud9 60:40 OpTic Gaming
OpTic are a team in form right now. Doing really well in the Pro League, they will for sure go into this game feeling confident they can take it. C9 are preparing for the major, and this game honestly doesn’t mean THAT much for them. Will they really want to potentially throw anything away for the prize fund in this cup. On top of that, OpTic beat them pretty convincingly last time, and overall at this moment in time, have the better riflers. The main way for c9 to take this game, is for shroud and skadoodle to go off. If they don’t, then I really fancy OpTic for this game. With them currently being at 40%, I would still suggest to go LOW on them as long as they stay below 40%. I do think this game could be quite close, so go with your gut if you believe in c9.
