We are closing in on the last 3 days of OMEGA League Immortal EU Division. The situation is getting pretty hot, as we still have zero clue which team will progress to the playoffs and which teams will fall off. Here are my picks for Thursday matches.
Team Secret @ 1.12
FlyToMoon is definitely one of the teams that the fans love to watch. Due to their aggressive playstyle and wild picks, this team has successfully managed to win a lot of important series. Nevertheless, I don’t think that they stand a chance against Team Secret because Puppey’s team is just on another level. Secret has 3 wins in this tournament out of 3 matches, and with only 1 map lost out of 7, this looks to be another good tournament run for them. I would normally give FTM a chance to take a map, but not this time. They’ve just changed a player, and they are not looking as sharp as before. Team Secret ML is the best safe bet here if you don’t want to risk going for Secret -1.5 handicap.
Team Nigma @ 1.49
In their last match vs 5men, VP reminded us of old Virtus.Pro from a few years back, where they were dominating the EU scene. Aggressive, dominant, impressive rotations, and kills all over the map. Virtus.Pro and Nigma are a clash of titans where anything is possible. The European teams recent performance has been pretty good, which is why I think that they have a better chance of succeeding. However, VP has always been a huge pain for Nigma, so you never know what will happen. Still, if I have to choose just one out of the two teams, I’ll go for Nigma. Nigma is just performing much better in recent days and months, even though they are playing without Kuroky, their captain and leader. Good odds on Nigma ML bet here.
Over 2.5 @ 1.89
EG is one of the teams in this tournament that surprised us all with their performance, in a positive way. With stand-in on position 2, they are really playing well. We can now see how Ramzes666 has been missed in EG as he is the guy that makes a difference. Evil Geniuses is one of the teams that’s capable of winning the entire OMEGA League. Judging from that we’ve seen so far, I think that they also have what it takes to win against Alliance. Alliance is struggling, and even though they’ve beat VP with 2-0, their loss vs 5men left a bitter taste in my mouth. Sure, it won’t be an easy match, and I expect all 3 maps here. EG are small favourites here, and if you want an ML bet, go for EG win.
