This is a tricky one. For me Flipsid3 is the better team here, and I think that their peak is a lot higher than Escape’s when everybody is hitting their shots, however form wise and overall hours being put into the game right now, Escape comes out on top quite heavily there. Ever since coming back from the major I guess F3 have just been laying back a bit since their hours are really low on some players, and their results too before the major were really good, now they are just really slacking. On the other side, Escape I do not think have lost a single game ever since being picked up by their sponsor, so that is some nice stuff there, they also have not the most impressive, however like 65 hours average amongst the players on CSGO the past 2 weeks, while F3 has like 30. Overall if the star players of F3 can show up here, they should be favored here, however F3 tend to go quiet, especially recent so not too much confidence in them here. 55-45 in favor of F3.
3% F3 if they are below 60%, otherwise go 3% here, Could really go eitherway, form wise Escape wins here by a mile while for me F3 are the better team.
My odds – 55-45 F3
My risk = High
My bet = 3% F3 under 60%, otherwise 3% Escape
My advice = Same as my bet
My odds for this match: FSid3 55:45 Escape
Lets make it short. IMO both team quite strong, but Escape have more potential, and they are practicing lots because they want to be a tier1 team. I know everybody wants to be a tier1 team, but Escape are a team who seem to always give 100%. They’ve shown pretty decent performance recently, they managed to beat HR 2-0, ENCE 2-0 and YP 2-0 as well. On their Terrorist side, sometimes they’re unstoppable. FlipSid3 are a bit shaky recently, I think its because they haven’t been playing enough. They have around 30 hours in the past 2 weeks, not like Escape who have 70-80+. They had matches against tier1 team in the past month, but they lost all of them. Last match was against Method, but that game was very close. I think Shara isn’t so good to play in a tier2 team, because before F3 he played in a tier4< Ukranian team. BO3, and I think we can see 3 close and exciting maps.
Low (5%) on Escape if the lounge odds are less than 55%
Low (5%) on FlipSid3 if the lounge odds are less than 45%
My odds for this match: FSid3 48:52 Escape
