Had a fun 4th of July with friends and the family in Denver, Colorado. Very few cities had firework displays, but the citizens made up for that in a huge way. I still have both hands so that is a positive. Home and handicapping, back to business. Went 3-2 on the day, in the green just a bit, but any day in the green is a good day. That brings the $100 flat bet thread total to $1097 profit.
Triumph/Yeah Over 2.5 maps +145...This bet was cancelled today and the game is being played tomorrow at an even better price, yes please.
Smash +127 vs AGO...Smash will get to play Mirage and should take care of business there giving me two chances to win the match at + money. They have had really good success vs AGO too (6-1 on maps), so this line will most likely drop if others see this. Smash have a perma ban on Veritgo so AGO won't get to play their best map giving Smash a nice map pool edge.
Saw +100 vs Nordavind...Saw have the deeper more consistent map pool. They have only lost 1 bo3 since late May. Blast gave them a boost because they played some of the top teams in the world and even came away with an upset. Since then, they have stepped up their game to another level. Nordavind are a nice gate keeper team, but Saw have a bit higher ceiling since we haven't seen their full potential yet. Saw can break through with another big win here and like the community support they get to help give them even more confidence.
The card is short. I know I don't have a play on the grand finals. I hate the one team gets a 1 map head start as far as pregame betting purposes. I will just live play those or individual maps. If I have see anything else I am on tomorrow for map plays, I will post those as well. Enjoy the games and good luck everyone.
Sometimes it is better not to watch to see how you lose a bet haha. Nemiga lost two maps points against weak buys.
Smash made a sweet comeback map 2 and could have won in reg and had a match point in OT just to suck ass the rest of the match. Smash blew so many advantages, it was sickening.
bad beats are real. Sometimes, you just have to remind yourself that the bet u made are good bets regardless of the outcome. I sprinkle some money on correct score Vitality 3-1 and they keep losing to weak buys on d2 as well. So close but yet so far
