FURIA vs. Gen.G Betting Preview With Prediction and Pick – BLAST Premier, June 2nd

| June 2, 2020 1:31 am PDT

Today’s schedule of the North American BLAST Premier bracket serves us a juicy tie between FURIA and Gen.G.

The Brazilians were bested by daps’ supreme tactical approach in the ESL One: Road to Rio Grand Final and will be desperate to exact their revenge.

This is easier said than done, though, as the Americans look as steady as they were during their run in the ESL One qualifiers which was easily visible in their hammering of Chaos Esports yesterday.

On the flip side, the Brazilian’s bubble finally went burst when they faced MIBR yesterday and it’s difficult to say whether they can return to top form with just a flick of the switch.

In this FURIA vs. Gen.G betting preview for Tuesday, June 2nd, I try to help you figure out what the outcome of the tie will be.

I take a look at the current betting prices and lay out an in-depth analysis of the organizations’ recent form.

There’s also a free betting pick along with my prediction in the end, so don’t go anywhere!

Time for my team analysis.

FURIA – Can They Bounce Back Quickly?

FURIA was on an absolute roll before Gen.G managed to overcome them in the ESL One: Road to Rio Grand Final.

It was yet another disappointing encounter with daps and company but it didn’t cause too much long-term damage as the Brazilians were immediately back at it.

They started the DreamHack event in top form and also had a positive outing against Chaos in their first BLAST Premier fixture.

However, yesterday’s loss against MIBR will definitely be hard to swallow. FURIA was the overwhelming favorite as they have dominated over their fellow countrymen for quite a while now.

But despite a good start on Inferno, the team’s form dropped towards the end which allowed FalleN, fer, and TACO to wrap up a 16:13 win and record their first victory over their rivals this season.

Captain arT and his teammates are not ones to sulk but I’m sure that the defeat will cause a drop in confidence and this is not something that helps you out, especially when you’re contesting matches in Best of 1 format.

Gen.G – Another Tactical Masterclass on the Way?

After winning the Road to Rio event, I was fully expecting Gen.G to top their DreamHack Masters group but a heavy loss against an inspired 100 Thieves team proved too costly.

They did improve against Team Liquid but were again nowhere near their tactical best when they faced Cloud9.

The win against Liquid was enough to hand them a spot in the Lower Bracket but fans were concerned that daps and the rest are running out of steam a bit.

However, a solid start against Chaos Esports in the current tournament was exactly the pick-me-up everyone needed. Marksmen koosta, s0m, and BnTeT were back to their best and although Chaos’ roster is not exactly elite, the win will do Gen.G a world of good.

They should be ready with the plan to tackle FURIA on any map and their superior head-to-head record against the Brazilians hands them a massive psychological advantage here.

FURIA vs. Gen.G Betting Prediction and Pick

FURIA’s loss against MIBR comes at the worst possible time as they now have to face their Achilles heel today.

Gen.G is the only North American outfit that can really challenge the lightning-paced Brazilians consistently and all the players know that full well.

Captain arT and his trusted generals yuurih and KSCERATO will not lie down but I feel there will be a bit of a gloomy atmosphere within the ranks.

If daps can rally his troops early and rack up a good round advantage, I don’t see how FURIA will be able to claw their way back.

In any case, the odds for backing Gen.G are fantastic and I simply can’t miss out on them given the current circumstances.
