CR4ZY vs. Cloud9 Odds, Prediction, and Pick for April 24th – BTS Pro Series: Americas
The playoffs of the BTS Pro Series: Americas started yesterday and both matches were fantastic. The clash between CR4ZY and Evil Geniuses was especially good to watch and it went all the way before EG finally prevailed.
That sent CR4ZY to the losers’ bracket and the team will have to face Cloud9 next. Most people expect an easy win for the favorite, but I’m not so sure.
I share my prediction and betting pick in this CR4ZY vs. Cloud9 betting preview, based on the latest odds and analysis of both sides.
CR4ZY vs. Cloud9 Latest Odds and Lines
- CR4ZY to win; -245
- Cloud9 to win; +180
- CR4ZY (-1.5); +127
- Cloud9 (+1.5); -158
- Over 2.5; +115
- Under 2.5; -143
The CR4ZY vs. Cloud9 odds I decided to use are available at 10bet, one of my favorite betting sites for Dota 2 tournaments. As you can see, the bookmaker views CR4ZY as the most likely winner here, but I have my objections.
There’s little doubt that CR4ZY was one of the strongest teams in the group stage of BTS Pro Series: Americas. The squad won six matches in a row before barely losing against the eventual group winner Quincy Crew in the final round.
The problem with that defeat is that CR4ZY had to face Evil Geniuses in the first round of the playoffs. It was a close battle between two strong rivals, but EG won it and the team now has to go through the losers’ bracket.
I don’t think that anyone expected to see Cloud9 in the playoffs after the abysmal start in the group stage. The team lost four matches in a row, winning only one round in the process.
It was a dire situation that Cloud9 somehow managed to salvage after three straight wins in the last three matches. The streak included a victory over Evil Geniuses which speaks volumes about the team’s improvement.
Cloud9 lost comprehensively against the same opponent in the group stages, but that was before the team found its mojo again. I expect a much closer fight today.
CR4ZY vs. Cloud9 Prediction and Pick
- Over 2.5; +115
My CR4ZY vs. Cloud9 prediction is that we will see three games today and the price of +115 makes that the best betting pick. To be honest, I almost went with the underdog instead, based purely on momentum, but CR4ZY deserves respect for the performance so far.
