We break down two of today's matches, headlined by Astralis vs. Natus Vincere.
Virtus.pro +1.5 (1.38)
Two of the hottest CIS teams in the game will face off in the semi-finals of DreamHack Open Winter. Gambit have gotten the better of VP for the most part, which is why they are favoured here. However, these series have been very close. Since YEKINDAR joined VP, this matchup has gone to a decider in three games out of four, and many maps have been decided in the final rounds. This should be closer to a 50/50 type matchup, in my opinion.
Natus Vincere +1.5 (1.41)
NaVi’s H2H record against Astralis in 2020 is no joke. They have won five out of six matches against them, with their only lossing coming in the final of ESL Pro league. In all of these matches, they have won at least one map, so there is some value here on the handicap at 1.41 when you consider that most other bookies are offering shorter odds on this line.
