We are close to wrapping up CS Summit so let’s continue to enjoy the 4 gamers while they last. Time to dig in!
GODSENT Vs. OG
GODSENT are -130 favorites in what Vegas likes to be a very close match. These 2 have met once previously in March with Godsent winning a tight 3 map affair which featured one OT map and a 2nd map that finished 16-14. The addition of Farlig makes GODSENT even stronger than that last meeting, leading to them being favored here. kRYSTAL is a fade while the other 4 are all cash viable.
At +100, OG are certainly worth cash consideration as well in what is most likely a 3 map contest. mantuu and valde lead the way while ISSAA remains a solid value.
Consider: Farlig, zehN, Maden, STYKO (Cash/GPP) mantuu, vlade (Cash/GPP) ISSAA (Value)
Prediction: 2-1 GODSENT
North Vs. NiP
North are +225 dogs, biggest on the slate. They feature no players with a true positive KDR (aizy’s just missed by 2 kills) and only 2 players have a rating over 1 over the last 3 months. Fade
At -312, NiP are the biggest favorites, which will make them popular. We know the story with these guys already. Everyone here is viable while hampus is always a viable punt option.
Consider: Plopski, REZ, twist, nawwk (Cash/GPP) hampus (Punt)
Prediction: 2-0 NiP
FURIA Vs. Cloud9
FURIA are the 2nd largest favorites on the slate at -294. Per usual, the trio of yuurih, KSCERATO and HEN1 are the top options while arT is a strong value option.
I am a little surprised Cloud9 are such big dogs here, opening them up for a solid GPP stack at lower ownership. I prefer floppy and oSee and they can be paired with either of Sonic or motm if looking for the full gpp stack.
Consider: KSCERATO, HEN1, yuurih (Cash/GPP) arT (Value)
Prediction: 2-1 FURIA
100 Thieves Vs. Gen.G
Our final matchup also features our tightest spread with 100 Thieves pick em -128 favorites. These 2 have met twice this year with both sides sweeping a match. 100 Thieves won the most recent match just over a month ago while Gen.G won their April meeting. 100 thieves are a pretty deep squad and all 5 guys are valid here with AZR my least favorite and jks the obvious top option.
Gen.G is never a sexy option but they are certainly viable as -100 dogs. BnTeT, autimatic and koosta are the top options here.
Consider: jks, Gratisfaction (Cash/GPP) jkaem, Liazz, AZR (Value) autimatic, BnTeT, koosta (Cash/GPP)
Prediction: 2-1 100 Thieves
Note: Bold indicates a stronger lean for that player. All stats are over the course of the last 3 months.
