Team Liquid Analysis
I was genuinely surprised by the opening match of Team Liquid. The side was an overwhelming favorite against Bad News Bears but had to go to the 29th round of the third map to win. The bold strategy of the underdog was a joy to watch and almost caught Liquid off guard.
And yet, we’re talking about one of the best teams in the world. The guys held their nerves to win and considering how close all matches have been, that could be crucial for the final standings.
MIBR Team Analysis
MIBR’s start in the ESL One Road to Rio was similar to what their next opponent experienced. The team was put under severe pressure by Yeah and had to work hard to progress. The more famous Brazilians did win at the end, but it wasn’t easy by any means.
The next opponent is much stronger, though, so MIBR certainly has to improve to beat one of the leading teams in the world.
Team Liquid vs. MIBR Prediction and Pick
I’m sure that most people’s prediction would be to back Team Liquid and that’s only natural. And yet, the tournament has been so close so far and MIBR’s talent is undeniable. That’s why I prefer to go for the over 2.5 maps option.
The price of +131 is really high and the Brazilians should be able to snatch at least one map, so that’s my final betting pick.
- Over 2.5; +131
