E-frag without dream3r have actually looked better at this event than I thought they would have. They completely demolished Penta in impressive fashion, and go into this game the heavy favourites. They are an inconsistent side sometimes, and I do feel like they will have one poor performance at this LAN. Whether or not it will be this game, we will have to wait and see. They are a better LAN side than online, so that plays a part in their impressive performances so far, but they do still suffer from weak CT’s , and that could cost them in important rounds.
Pixelfire and their international roster have looked good in parts, and weak in others. BARBAR has been an impressive performer, and most of the members have stepped up in certain spots and delivered when they needed too. Deadfox can also go big and he will need to be on his game today if they are to take this.
I do feel like E-frag will probably take this, but the odds for me are off. Pixelfire, if BARBAR and Deadfox can perform on the T side especially, and force E-frag into their force buys, can help Pixelfire to take this. E-frag are a side who suffer with their economy and it will be up to Pixelfire to create issues with this. I don’t like betting high on E-frag, as they are an inconsistent side, even if they did look good so far this event. I do still think they will take this, and would suggest going LOW/MED if you can afford it. This is a risky bet so if you don’t have a lot, just SKIP this game.
