FURIA are set to take on MIBR in a spicy Brazilian derby. We break down that match and more in today's betting tips.
Natus Vincere (1.62)
When you look at the form of these two teams, this may seem like a pretty even matchup. However, Natus Vincere should be big favorites here due to how the map veto is likely to play out. Both teams will likely stick to their permabans, which means that both Dust2 and Vertigo will be out of the picture. Without Vertigo, NiP will likely opt for Overpass, which has been a very strong map for them. While this is one of NaVi’s least played maps, the CIS side has amassed an impressive 77.8% win rate over 9 games on Overpass. Even if NiP were to steal away Overpass, they will be a significant underdog on the decider, with Train being the most likely candidate. NaVi have lost their last four games on Train, but most of their losses have come against strong Train teams such as mousesports and ENCE, and this has traditionally been a very strong map for NaVi.
FURIA have been completely dominant against MIBR throughout history. In fact, they have never lost against MIBR in a BO3, winning five in total. The last three of these series have been clean 2–0 sweeps for FURIA, as well, showing just how much of an advantage they hold in the map veto.
