DreamHack Masters is about to get underway! We break down two of today's matches.
Astralis -1.5 (1.41) or Heroic Map 1 +5.5 (1.90)
Most of the Danish teams like to copy Astralis straight up, so it is no surprise to see Heroic with a pretty similar map pool. Astralis should definitely be big favorites in this one since there aren’t too many ways that Heroic can make this awkward for Astralis in the map veto, but Heroic aren’t a bad team at all, and they might make Astralis sweat a little bit. This one isn’t for the faint of heart, but I like Heroic’s chances of covering the spread on their map choice. But when it all comes to shove, Astralis should be the one to take this series.
Team Liquid -1.5 (1.57)
Chaos have undergone quite a few changes, the most recent being that they have chosen to let go of leaf in favor of Jonji. While Chaos does have some decent players, they are far from the level of Team Liquid and the probability of Liquid sweeping this series is high.
