The group stages are over and we have our 8 playoff teams. Now we move on to the quarter-finals, which are best of 3 (thank goodness!). Let’s dig in!
forZe Vs. Syman
forZe are the slates biggest favorites at -250, which will lead to them being very popular here. Nice thing about forZe too is their clear reliance on the trio of xsepower, FL1T and the always underpriced Jerry.
FADE in cash. Only because this is a 2 gamer are the trio of mou, Koez and n0rb3r7 a viable GPP stack.
Consider: xsepower, FL1T (Cash/GPP) Jerry (Value)
Prediction: 2-1 forZe
AVEZ Vs. Endpoint
AVEZ are pick em dogs at -101. This means Vegas is telling us this one is essentially a coin flip, putting both sides in play. AVEZ have had a very good event with KEi leading the way with a monster 1.47 rating. Really everyone here is viable though outside of nawrot. AVEZ did get swept by Endpoint in a May meeting, so they will need to be on their game.
Much like AVEZ, they feature 4 cash viable plays with MiGHTYMAX being a fade. CRUC1AL and Thomas lead the way while Surreal is insanely cheap for his numbers and makes for the top punt on the slate.
Consider: Kei, Kylar, Marko, byali (Cash/GPP) CRUC1AL, Thomas, robiin (Cash/GPP) Surreal (Punt)
Prediction: 2-1 Endpoint
Note: Bold indicates a stronger lean for that player. All stats are over the course of the last 3 months.
