Some heavy hitters will be in action today as Astralis take on Vitality with a spot in the playoffs up for grabs. We break down that match alongside a modern classic between FURIA and Liquid.
Vitality (1.83) or Over 2.5 Maps (1.91)
Astralis are set to take on Vitality in a match to decide who moves on to the playoffs. This matchup has been pretty even in recent time, with the last three matches going to a decider. Vitality have won the last two matches that they have played and I definitely think that Vitality have had a slight edge in this matchup since they acquired Nivera. A lot is going to come down to the veto, in my opinion. The last time they played, the maps were Vertigo, Dust2 and Inferno, and if we see the same type of veto, I definitely favour Vitality here.
FURIA ML (1.69)
Both FURIA and Liquid got smashed by NaVi, and now have to battle it out against each other for a spot in the playoffs. FURIA have won 10 out of the last 12 games against Liquid, with 11 of those wins coming this year. The Brazilians have simply been dominant in this matchup historically, so it is incredibly hard to bet against them with this in mind.
