ALTERNATE aTTaX vs. Salamander Betting Preview and Prediction

The Advanced Division Europe of ESEA Season 33 is going to end this week after a long and gruesome season. There are only two matches left and Endpoint is waiting in the final for the winner from Thursday’s clash.

This ALTERNATE aTTaX vs. Salamander preview provides my prediction on which team will progress to the deciding match. It includes odds, analysis of both sides and a betting pick at the end.

ALTERNATE aTTaX vs. Salamander Odds

  • ALTERNATE aTTaX to win; -152
  • Salamander to win; +114
  • ALTERNATE aTTaX (-1.5); +172
  • Salamander (+1.5); -238
  • Under 2.5; -137
  • Over 2.5; +104

I decided to use BetOnline’s ALTERNATE aTTaX vs. Salamander odds because of the high limits and the low margin of the bookmaker. The match winner prices suggest that this clash should be really close which is surprising to me, as you will see from the analysis below.

ALTERNATE aTTaX – The Best Team in the Division?

There’s little doubt that ALTERNATE aTTaX is one of the strongest teams in the competition. The squad comfortably topped the rankings after the end of the regular season. The same trend continued in the playoffs up to the Upper Bracket final against Endpoint on Tuesday.

They lost one of the closest matches in recent memory. ALTERNATE aTTaX won the first map and then lost the next two after overtime. It was an extraordinary feat for the fans and a tough defeat to swallow.

I’m sure it will only motivate the team to bounce back and the skill is obviously there. This was the first loss of the ALTERNATE aTTaX since the middle of February which is remarkable.            

Salamander – A Cinderella Story

Most people expect Salamander to win a match or two in the playoffs but to eventually lose. The team was eight in the regular season and was sent to the loser’s bracket by ALTERNATE aTTaX after the second round of the playoffs.

Salamander has been fighting hard to survive ever since and somehow managed to reach the loser’s bracket final after a strong winning streak. Many of those victories were close, so the squad certainly has shown heart.

The big question here is if that will be enough against an opponent that’s objectively much stronger.

ALTERNATE aTTaX vs. Salamander Pick

  • ALTERNATE aTTaX (-1.5) +172

Salamander has nothing to lose and the team did win one map against ALTERNATE aTTaX last time around. However, the favorite will be angry and desperate to come back to winning ways after the dramatic defeat versus Endpoint.

The best pick here is to back ALTERNATE aTTaX to win without losing a map and the odds of +172 for the favorite to cover the -1.5 map advantage are simply fantastic.

If you want to apply a more conservative approach, the price -152 for a victory by any score is still good enough, in my opinion.
