This will be the last day for some teams. And a final chance to grab their top 4 spot in their group. Yesterday I predicted everything right, let’s see what will happen on Tuesday at WePlay! Pushka League Season 1: Division 1.
Ninjas In Pyjamas +1.5 @ 1.86
First match of the day in Pushka League and it’s already a giver. Both teams are still fighting for top 4 placement in their EU group. Both teams have 3 wins and 1 loss. Team Secret got surprised by Team Liquid and they’ve managed to lose that match. OG managed to take a map off Secret too. OG, a team which is eliminated from the group already. The new NiP squad is looking really good, the ex Chicken Fighters squad are playing even better since they’ve joined NiP. They’ve shown amazing play vs Nigma and Liquid, and I do believe they can take a map off mighty Team Secret here. Amazing odds on handicap here.
Over 2.5 @ 1.88
Alliance is holding 1st place in the European group for now. With 4 wins and 1 loss they have looked really dominant in the previous matches, even if the scores were tight. The only match that they’ve dropped was vs Team Secret. On the other hand, Nigma is something that Team Liquid used to be in the ESL One LA Online tournament, a team that other teams are playing with. They have had disastrous performances and games in this tournament until now. They have only 1 win vs OG.Seed, and that was a close one (2-1). Alliance has already secured a top placement, and they might relax a little bit, where Nigma is waiting for their chance. They need this win, and they will do everything to take a map and to threat Alliance. This could go to 3 maps.
Virtus.Pro @ 1.54
It surprised me how Virtus.Pro in this match are not such big favourites, according to the sportsbooks odds for this match. Their young academy team is doing pretty well and with 4 wins and 1 loss they have already secured their playoff spot. Virtus.Pro is sitting at 2 wins and 2 losses, but they still have a chance to advance on. This is a high risk match for betting, since partner teams within the same organization are playing each other and manipulation is possible. Virtus.Pro needs that playoff spot, and I doubt the organization behind Virtus.Pro will allow VP.Prodigy to humiliate their main team and take a playoff spot from them. Why would you have 1 team in the playoffs, when you can have 2?
FlyToMoon -1.5 @ 1.54
B8 have nothing to play for here anymore, only their pride. They are 0-5 in the CIS group without a single map won. FlyToMoon are currently sitting in 5th place with 2 wins and 3 losses, but they still have a chance to advance. They need to beat B8, and their motivation should be high. They showed that they can beat much stronger teams like Spirit and VP.Prodigy, and I don’t see a reason why they wouldn’t beat B8 here. They will aim for 2-0 here, they need it to advance.
