The likes of fnatic and Dignitas will look to get off to a good start in day two of Flashpoint. We break down the action in today's betting tips.
MAD Lions -1.5 (1.66)
MAD Lions are in solid form, coming off a 2-1 victory against fnatic, while Dignitas are coming off losses to HAVU and Lyngby Vikings at Elisa Invitational. This Dignitas side has a lot to prove after picking up H4RR3 and HEAP, two relatively inexperienced players at this level. Getting some new blood into the team was necessary, but I question if they have enough individual quality to compete with MAD Lions.
c0ntact Map 1 +3.5 (1.89) or c0ntact +1.5 @ 1.78
While I would expect fnatic to take this series more often than not, c0ntact actually does have enough quality to at least compete with the Swedes. For whatever reason, fnatic have really struggled with Mirage recently, which could definitely be a deciding factor in this matchup. The map veto is going to be key for both sides, and it will give us a better idea of how the series is going to play out. Regardless, there are enough vulnerabilities in fnatic’s map pool for me to consider c0ntact on the handicap here.
