This match is so hard to call and I’m so unsure, Virtus.pro were in a massive slump and they are extremely inconsistent, although they have been performing very well lately so it seems like they are back on track. NiP are the complete opposite of Virtus.pro, they are usually consistent but the last few events went really bad for them, NiP got knocked out in the group stage on ESL One Cologne, same on ECS except they didn’t even win a single map there, Dreamhack went better as they finished on the second place but also struggled against few weaker teams like Epsilon and got wrecked by Immortals, so pretty bad results overall.
So Virtus.pro may look better right now, but NiP won’t keep getting knocked out early on every single event they attend, they really have to start winning stuff and their chances are really high this time, they always had a good record against Virtus.pro and I think they are slightly better than VP even though they played like crap in the recent time, either way, this match is still 50-50 but I would slightly favor NiP and a small bet on them won’t hurt.
My odds for this match: VP 45:55 NiP
So the maps are out and they are interesting. I am really surprised that VP left in D2 as this should be a free map for NiP almost. Cobble is then not their best map, but they do know how to play it. The problem is so do NiP and I could easily see the Swedish side taking this 2-0. There is of course a chance that VP could come back from the D2 loss and take the other 2 maps, but Train is also a good one for NiP. With the odds being 50-50, and NiP almost having a free map, the only logical thing to do is to go LOW on NiP. I did personally feel that VP would take this one before seeing the maps, but now you can’t go on them.
My odds for this match: VP 50:50 NiP
