We roll on with the Eden Arena Malta Vibes Cup 2. This is a 16 team event with teams ranging from #27 in the world to #91. There is a 40k prize pool up for grabs and this is only a 4 day tournament. Today brings us another 2 gamer, this time from Group C. Once again these are best of 1, which can lend to upsets, so play smart. Let’s dig in!
FATE Vs. AVEZ
FATE are +136 dogs here and actually playing their second match of the day already. They were swept by Illuminar earlier today, the same squad AVEZ just swept the other day. FATE are simply too pricey here for cash but h4rn and mar make a decent GPP stack and can be paired with blocker or patrick for a full gpp stack.
On these two gamers you can typically expect a double stack of the favorites in cash. So we can anticipate AVEZ seeing some ownership as -179 favorites. They feature a pretty well rounded team with everyone but nawrot being cash viable. They are also priced nicely here, helping with cash bulid. Kei is the top option here.
Consider: Kei, Kylar (Cash/GPP) byali, Marko (Value)
Prediction: 1-0 AVEZ
Hard Legion Vs. CR4ZY
At -217 favorites, expect a full Hard Legion stack to be chalk. They are a nice team because of their reliance on the duo of Krad and Forester while rAge is the third piece.
GPP only as the biggest dogs. The trio of SENSEi, DemQQ and Sergiz are a high upside stack. On a two gamer like this, especially best of 1 format, I don’t mind a double stack of both dogs as a viable gpp.
Consider: Forester, Krad, rAge, kinqie (Cash/GPP)
Prediction: 1-0 Hard Legion
Note: Bold indicates a stronger lean for that player. All stats are over the course of the last 3 months.
