IEM Beijing is about to get underway! We break down the matchup between Vitality and Spirit, including the ZywOo prop bet promotion.
Over 2.5 Maps (2.14) or Spirit +1.5 (1.68)
Team Vitality have been great all throughout the summer and fall period, having made finals at four of the biggest events of the year. However, they have struggled against Spirit, having lost the only two series that they have played against them this year. Both of those matches went the distance, with all three maps being played. While Vitality are certainly favoured to take this series, Spirit have a good chance of taking a map, which makes the over an interesting play at more than plus money. Taking Spirit on the handicap is also a decent option.
Team Vitality Win The Series And Zywoo 45+ Series Kills (2.75)
ZywOo has posted 60+ frags in both of their matches against Spirit this year. However, it is worth noting that they did lose both of those series. With that said, Vitality are certainly favoured to break that streak and if this goes to three maps once more, ZywOo will likely get comfortably above the 45 frag mark. Spirit are a good enough team to make this match competitive and more rounds means more potential frags for ZywOo. Even if Vitality were to sweep Spirit, ZywOo is still the type of player who has the quality to post 45 kills over the course of two maps. While this isn’t my favourite prop bet, it is definitely worth considering.
