Round of 16 is in the books and we move on to the quarter finals. This means we get one final 4 game slate for this event. Once again, these are best of 3. Let’s dig in!
Hard Legion Vs. AVEZ
Hard Legion are pick em dogs at -109. This makes them cash viable on a slate where there are 3 close spreads and lots of cash viable plays. For HL, the trio of Krad, Forester and rAge are the plays.
We have seen a lot of AVEZ lately so we know the story here. nawrot is a fade while everyone else is viable. KEi continues his strong event and is the top option while byali, Marko and Kylar all come in as cheaper options.
Consider: Forester, Krad, rAge (Cash/GPP) Kei, Markos, byali (Cash/GPP) Kylar (Value)
Prediction: 2-1 AVEZ
Secret Vs. AGF
Another pick em match, Secret are -127 favorites. They are led by MALI, who while a very small sample, has shown huge upside with Secret (his career stats are. amore realistic 1.09 rating, which is still solid). anarkez is viable as well, though a bit pricey and better of for GPP.
AGF are pick em dogs at -103. But as I mentioned earlier, this slate is going to feature a lot of viable teams, and that includes AGF. fr0slev remains the play here. TMB is viable as well, though his price is better off for GPP.
Consider: MALI, anarkez (Cash/GPP) sinnopsyy (Value) fr0slev, TMB (Cash/GPP) Daffu (Value)
Prediction: 2-1 Secret
Gambit Youngster VS. Syman
The only none pick em favorites on the slate, Gambit are -323 favorites. For those who aren’t familiar with these literal youngsters (average age of 19), they are headlined by sh1ro and Ax1Le. Both are rising stars and cold hard locks here. Oh by the way, Gambit Youngsters are 4-0 with 4 sweeps against Syman, including 2 in 2020.
Consider: sh1ro, Ax1LE (Cash/GPP)
Prediction: 2-0 Gambit Youngster
Endpoint Vs. ALTERNATE aTTaX
Endpoint are +104 dogs, once again adding to our theme of nearly every team being viable on this slate. These 2 just met on Monday night and it was a very tight 3 gamer. Another deep team, MiGHTYMAX is a fade while everyone else is viable. Surreal is the top punt play on the slate at 5.2k, about a 1.5k too cheap for his stats.
AA continue their hot stretch, now wining 8 in a row, including against today’s opponent in Endpoint. Like Endpoint, they are a very deep team with 4 viable cash plays. (ScrunK is a fade). Kressy once again leads the way while mirbit remains a very strong value, though his price is starting to catch up.
Consider: CRUC1AL, Thomas, robiin (Cash/GPP) Surreal (Punt) kressy, stfn, slaxz- (Cash/GPP) mirbit (Value)
Prediction: 2-1 ALTERNATE aTTaX
Note: Bold indicates a stronger lean for that player. All stats are over the course of the last 3 months.
