We break down two of today's matches in BLAST Fall Showdown.
Spirit +1.5 (1.30)
Virtus.pro have been on fire recently, but they have always struggled against Spirit. They have only beaten Spirit once in a BO3, with Spirit taking four this year. In their only loss, Spirit managed to win a map, as well. Both the over and the map handicap are interesting plays in this spot, with how likely it is that Spirit takes at least a map in this one.
FURIA -1.5 (1.36)
FURIA are massive favourites in this matchup against the Argentinians from Isurus. FURIA could not have asked for a better first-round matchup in this tournament. That said, it needs to be mentioned that there are rumours that HEN1 and/or VINI could be leaving FURIA due to some turmoil within the team, making this far from a safe bet. With that said, there is definitely a huge skill gap in this matchup and FURIA should sweep this series more often than not.
