Liquid didn’t look too hot yesterday, they got demolished by Cloud9 on both maps and it just seemed like everything they did failed and they couldn’t hit their shots. This time Liquid are facing Echo Fox and I actually think that they will lose both maps, the first one is dust2 which is one of Echo Fox’s best maps, second is nuke which is literally their best map, I feel bad for Liquid for already being so unlucky at the start, but who knows, anything could happen here.
Echo Fox qualified for ESL Pro League by beating Luminosity 2-0 yesterday, they actually played on dust2 and started quite poorly, the first half went 10-5 in favor of Luminosity, but Echo Fox had a flawless T side and managed to come back and win 16-13, they are always very good on dust2 and won the last 7 matches on that map against teams like Na’Vi, compLexity and Liquid for example, so clearly dust2 is one of Echo Fox’s best maps.
The odds are great and Echo Fox can easily win this match, I wouldn’t even call it an upset if they did, small bet on them won’t hurt and it’s definitely worth the risk.
My odds for this match: Liquid 50:50 EchoFox
D2 is the number one upset map. If you don’t believe me, go look it up. There is a lot of ways to play on it and the stronger side can often struggle on over powering the opposition and in that respect it is a quite unique map. Nuke does also feel random, but it also feels like a map where the experience of the Liquid boys will be too much for Echo to handle and the times I have seen Echo on it, it was mainly ryx dominating and the rest lagging behind. You cannot beat liquid with only 1 guy going off. These are of course Bo1’s and I do expect Liquid to take both, but with all being said so far, I will go LOW/ICB on Echo for the first map, and go LOW on Liquid the second.
My odds for this match: Liquid 60:40 EchoFox
