ENCE took care of business against Natus Vincere in yesterday's match. Will they keep it going, or can ZywOo's Vitality put an end to their hot-streak? We break it down alongside two more games in today's daily betting tips.
Natus Vincere (1.49)
NiP are coming off a crushing loss to Vitality. They completely botched the map veto, in my opinion, opting to let Dust2 through and picking Vertigo instead of Overpass. While Natus Vincere have looked terrible recently, they do have a clear edge in the veto here against NiP. They will likely ban Vertigo, while NiP will likely ban Dust2 or Train. Regardless, NaVi will get a map where they have a significant edge, while NiP will likely have the best chance on a map like Inferno. Even if they were to win their map choice, they will likely have to beat NaVi on Nuke on a potential decider, which seems unlikely. This is just a pretty rough matchup for NiP, in general, and the fact that they just made a roster change certainly doesn’t help.
Over 2.5 Maps (1.86)
Both of these teams are coming off a win. Vitality absolutely annihilated NiP, while ENCE swept Natus Vincere in impressive fashion. Both of these teams will likely ban their opponents strongest map choice, with Vitality likely banning Train, while ENCE will likely ban Vertigo. ENCE will probably pick Mirage in this one, where they definitely have a bit of an edge, while Vitality will likely pick Inferno or Nuke where they have the upper hand. A three map series seems like the most probable scenario in this one.
Over 2.5 maps (1.86)
Evil Geniuses are already out of playoff contention, while 100 Thieves have secured first place in the group. With neither of these teams having much of anything to play for, this essentially becomes a glorified scrim. A three map series seems likely here, but anything can happen.
