Team Liquid vs. Envy betting preview and prediction, April 29, 2020

The ESL One Road to Rio, North America group stage is reaching a critical point. Round 3 of Group B is back and the three matches on Wednesday could prove to be vital for the final standings.

One of the teams that are close to reaching the next stage is Liquid and a victory against Envy could prove to be enough for a spot in the playoffs. I’m sure that the favorite will be happy to take another step in the right direction today.

I share my thoughts on the potential outcome in my Team Liquid vs. Envy betting preview. It features the latest odds, analysis of both sides, my prediction, and a free betting pick.

Team Liquid Analysis

On the surface, everything is going great for Team Liquid. The favorite won both matches so far and sits on top of the group, alongside FURIA Esports. A closer look at the opening encounters shows some cracks, though.

Bad News Bears won a map and pushed Liquid to the limit, while MIBR stayed close on both maps despite the seemingly easy victory.

My impression is that the team has been doing just enough to win and that’s understandable. Hitting top form so early in the competition makes no sense for a squad like Liquid.

Team Envy Analysis

I’m sure that Envy is one of the teams that are happy with their performance so far. The defeat against FURIA was not the ideal start to the Road to Rio, but Envy looked strong on Nuke against one of the best teams in the group.

The squad bounced back and completely demolished Yeah in the second match, allowing the opposition only four rounds over the two maps. It was a good victory for Envy’s confidence and the team will need every bit of an advantage it can get for the upcoming clash against Liquid.

Team Liquid vs. Envy Pick

  • Over 2.5; +201

I won’t shock anyone with my prediction by backing Team Liquid to win this one. And yet, the favorite has been inconsistent at times, while Envy has a lot of momentum coming into this match. I believe we could see a closer clash than the odds suggest and the price of +201 for over 2.5 maps is worth a shot.
