Team Liquid vs. FURIA Betting Preview, May 21, 2020

Things in the North American Group A of 2020 DreamHack Masters tournament are already heated and we are in for another crunch tie between Team Liquid and FURIA today.

The Americans took a misstep in their opening fixture after failing to topple underdogs Chaos and will have to crank it up if they want to advance to the playoffs.

Captain arT’s Brazilians will be feeling very confident, though, as they started their campaign with another blowout win against rivals MIBR.

My Team Liquid vs. FURIA betting preview for May 21st looks at the current betting prices and also provides a betting prediction and a free pick based on the organizations’ recent form and key stats.

Team Liquid vs. FURIA Odds

I have chosen BetOnline for this decisive CS:GO tie as the bookmaker consistently rolls out the best odds and market selections.

Here are the main options you can find at their sportsbook:

Match Winner

Team Liquid +109
FURIA -135

Map Advantage

Team Liquid  (+1.5) -286
FURIA (-1.5) +214

Total Maps Played

Over 2.5 -104
Under 2.5 -122

To be quite honest, the betting site is giving the benefit of the doubt to Team Liquid. The organization is nowhere near its status from a year ago but I concede that they still have it in them to push the elite on their day.

Let’s take a deep dive here and see how these teams have been faring lately.

Team Liquid Current Form

The Americans are in trouble! Losing to Chaos definitely wasn’t in their plans and they now have to chase wins against some of the top organizations on the North American CS:GO scene.

This starts today with the vital clash against FURIA. The worrying part is that the team is not exactly in top form right now.

On top of falling to the group underdogs in their opening DreamHack tie, they also lost to Cloud9 at the ESL One:Road to Rio with the bronze medals at stake.

There was also a heavy loss against today’s opponent in the playoffs prior to that, so captain nitr0’s team is in definite need of a pick-me-up here.

The positive thing is that even with the fear factor of playing Team Liquid slowly evaporating, players like NAF and EliGE can still make a big difference if they show up.

FURIA Current Form

Captain arT’s boys are in the zone right now. Everything from the tactical front to their relentless attacking style is clicking and yuurih and KSCERATO can both stake a good claim of being North America’s best marksmen right now.

The team kicked off their DreamHack campaign with another solid win against fellow countrymen MIBR and don’t show any signs of slowing down.

It’s true that daps’ tactics rattled them at the ESL One: Road to Rio but Liquid’s resources are not quite the same at the moment.

To beat FURIA you need to execute your plan to perfection and I doubt that the Americans will be able to do that today.

Team Liquid vs. FURIA Prediction and Pick

We can look at map advantage and past meetings between these two teams but the truth is that FURIA is simply better right now.

Everyone knows how to stop them but not many teams can endure their blitzkrieg tactics for an entire series.

I believe Liquid has a chance to take a map here, especially if the key players show up but this tie goes to the Brazilians.

As I’m reluctant to pick an alternative market, I’m just going for an outright win for the favorite.

Pick
  • FURIA
    -135
