Gen.G Team Analysis
I believe that Gen.G had a slump during Flashpoint Season 1, but it seems like the guys are back to their best for the ESL One Road to Rio. The opening match against 100 Thieves was excellent and ended with a dominant victory.
Every aspect of Gen.G’s performance was flawless, including the map selection, the strategy, and the execution. That’s the squad that won DreamHack Open Anaheim and the rest of the field should be worried.
Triumph Team Analysis
The start of 2020 saw plenty of changes in the Triumph roster and the team struggled to stay consistent. Most of the successful moments came in low-tier competitions and against opponents that were hardly impressive.
That’s why I had low expectations for the opening match against Cloud9 but Triumph surprised me. The side battled hard to win the match by 2-1 and showed it won’t be the punching bag of Group A. The problem is that the next opponent is much stronger.
Gen.G vs. Triumph Prediction and Betting Pick
- Gen.G (-1.5); -135
You probably know what my prediction is by this point. Gen.G looked too strong in the opening match and I expect more of the same here. I believe we will see a clean sweep today and the price of -135 for the favorite to cover the -1.5 map advantage is an excellent pick.
