Liquid have swept 100 Thieves in their last three official games. Can they make it four in a row? We break down that matchup and more in today's betting tips.
Liquid (1.6) or Liquid -1.5 (2.1)
With the exception of a charity show match on Tuscan and Cache, Liquid have swept 100 Thieves in their last three games. Liquid have a clear edge in the map veto due to how much 100 Thieves have struggled on Mirage. 100 Thieves have opted for Vertigo in their last two games against Liquid, and while this isn’t Liquid’s best map by any means, they are still heavily favored against 100 Thieves on this map. Even if we were to get to a decider, Liquid will still have a big edge, with maps like Nuke and Dust2 being the most probable decider maps.
Heroic -1.5 (1.62)
HellRaisers have been in major turmoil ever since they opted to rebuild after ISSAA and woxic’s departure. They still have a few decent names on this roster, such as Flarich and jR, but Heroic should really sweep this series against a HellRaisers side that has a bit of an identity crisis at the moment.
Sharks +1.5 (1.38)
Sharks will take on paiN in this lower-bracket matchup. paiN have a stronger overall team, and Sharks are still hurting a bit after meyern’s departure, but I do like their chances at stealing a map due to the map pools of these two teams. Both Mirage and Overpass are likely to get banned, which means that we will see maps where Sharks are comfortable. paiN will have the edge on Nuke, but this is a map that Sharks like to play as well, and the fact that they are willing to play Vertigo gives them some upset potential, as well.
