Cloud9 vs. 100 Thieves Odds, Prediction, and Pick for May 2nd – ESL One Road to Rio, NA
The whole ESL One Road to Rio so far has been excellent but group A in North America has been my favorite. Orgless aside, all teams had their moments and four of them still have a chance to finish in the top 3 and progress to the next round.
It all ends today and one of the key clashes for the final standings is between Cloud9 and 100 Thieves. Both sides started with a defeat but went on to win three in a row to put themselves in a good position. It might not matter for the loser today, though.
My Cloud9 vs. 100 Thieves betting preview includes my views on the chances of both teams, as well as the latest odds. I wrap it all up with my prediction and betting pick at the end.

Cloud9 Team Analysis
The opening match of Cloud9 was a disaster and the team lost to Triumph. The victory over Orgless that followed was from ideal either, but at least it gave the side some momentum that was used well in the next two matches.
C9 improved in every single clash, beating Evil Geniuses and Gen.G. That puts the team in a good position for a potential spot in the playoffs. There’s a chance to progress even with a defeat today, but I’m sure that Cloud9 will be eager to win.
100 Thieves Team Analysis
The story of 100 Thieves in the tournament is not much different. It all started with a humiliating loss against Gen.G but the team bounced back with victories over EG and Triumph. If you add the forfeit or Orgless, 100 Thieves can certainly progress further.
More importantly, the squad is playing well both collectively and individually. That helped 100T build some momentum just when they need it the most.
Cloud9 vs. 100 Thieves Pick
- Over 2.5; +102
Both sides have been playing well recently and they will go into this match with a lot of confidence. I believe that we will see three maps today because of that. If you add the price of +120 for over 2.5, that’s the best Cloud9 vs. 100 Thieves betting pick out there.
