Honestly these two teams should be in the finals, not semis. Luminosity are ranked as the best team in the world right now, winning the biggest major in the history of CS:GO and have been playing extremely well for the last couple of months, now they are up against NiP who struggled for a while but I think it’s safe to say that NiP are back to their “original” skill level, they won Dreamhack Malmo and have been holding a consistent form for a while now.
What makes this match even harder is that both NiP and LG are great on basically any map, I don’t even know which maps could they possibly remove, NiP would most likely remove overpass and LG could ban dust2 even though they’ve been playing very well on that map lately, I’m really not sure what’s going to happen in the veto process, guess we will have to wait and see.
I don’t know whether betting on this match is a good idea or not, I’d say skipping would be the best thing to do, but one thing I’m sure about is that NiP is not a team you can trust with your money, they are usually consistent but sometimes they just don’t hit their shots and stuff, it happened against Virtus.pro few weeks ago and NiP got wrecked 0-2 in this match, it could happen again. I’m going with Luminosity, I believe they will win the entire event, but this match is extremely risky and either team can take it, I just trust Luminosity a bit more.
My odds for this match: NiP 40:60 LG
This is a tricky one, both teams are winning all of their matches left right and center, well, if you exclude that LG flop to G2 a few days ago. Both teams are looking to be in good form, win ratio wise at least, however right off the bat I will favor LG here. I feel like while NiP can fight, they have a lot more weaknesses compared to LG and if it comes to both teams being 100% tested, I feel that NiP are more likely to crumble. Luminosity when they are feeling it are insane, literally insane, and I do not have the confidence in the 5 man roster of NiP that I have in the LG guys, I just don’t. I feel that while yes NiP are looking good right now, if Get Right and F0rest are having a quiet game, which they can very often do, LG can run away with this. The part here that sets me off a bit however is the fact that NiP basically have a free map, LG will probably ban Cache, they definitely should meaning NiP can pick Dust2, and while LG are not horrible on it, they definitely are not solid on it, but then again NiP had to come back from a 14:2 deficit versus Liquid on it so not all hope is lost in LG there. Overall, not much to speculate, I feel this will be a very good match, a close one for that and may just come down to who turns up. 60-40 LG
3% LG under 67%, otherwise 3% NiP
My odds = 60-40 LG
My risk = High
My bet = 3% LG under 67%, otherwise 3% NiP
My advice = Same as my bet
My odds for this match: NiP 40:60 LG
Incredibly hard to pick game to be honest. The odds are 50-50, the real odds are close to 50-50, both sides are two of the best in the world, and although LG are slightly in front due to the map pool, the NiP fanboy in me sways me towards them. I find it really hard to pick as they are both my favourite teams, and even deciding the veto is really hard. NiP could veto Overpass, Inferno or Mirage. LG could veto Cache, or D2. The picks are hard to pick as well. Do NiP go with Cobble if D2 is open, do LG go with Mirage if Overpass is open. Incredibly hard to pick the veto, incredibly hard to pick the winner. Realistically, the best idea is to SKIP games like this, but we all know we all want to bet on this. I will personally go with NiP because of my initial gut was them, but you really can go on either side, and should bet as you see fit.
My odds for this match: NiP 50:50 LG
