I will not bet, but I think that G2 and Liquid will win
wtf 2.02 odds for navi? ez money mens)((
From the start of the tournament Navi are looking shaky and G2 has been pretty competetive so I would assume that G2 could take this 2-0 or 2-1
EG vs Liquid I would go for Liquid because they have shown pretty good against Navi and being competetive against Vitality so I would say 2-0 for liquid
G2 2:0 Navi
Liquid 2:1 EG
G2-1. NaVi are very shaky but should hold map pick.
EG 2-1. Clutch against furia, Liquid new and inconsistent.
Close match ups but there’s my 2 cents.
I will not bet but
NaVi and Liquid win
Well, Liquid looks very good, so i guess it they'll win 2-0. Or 2-1 at max.
G2 vs Na'Vi - a bit hard match for predicting, but if Na'Vi will continue to play like before vs Liquid and coL then G2 will SMASH them.
From G2 fan
Liquid to win should be a given comparatively to how EG are playing. That being said it's na "NA Derby" so there is bound to be a bit of rivalry although I don't think Stan and Zeus are as competent as moses and fallen/stew and the team play shows that so far.
Hard to predict the veto because we don't know if EG plays all the maps (looks like they do from their first ban being different in both games)
EG removes nuke
Liquid removes train
EG picks mirage(could be inferno but that seems daft)
Liquid picks dust2
EG removes overpass
Liquid removes vertigo
Inferno left over
I think liquid were a little unlucky against vitality in all honesty and had they not let so many rounds slip through their fingers on nuke and even vertigo they could have definitely pushed for a 3 mapper and they didn't look out of place against vitality and on nuke like pimp said, they were probably the better unit but nerves and small human errors cost them. They should, IMO sweep aside EG fairly comfortably and I think it might be a 2-0 but I wouldn't be surprised to see liquid tripping up(2-1) as they are prone to do so a fairlycomfy liquid win suits me.
NaVi ... Win 16-0 on both maps easy
Flameonthem will ace every 5th round and simple to get 10 knife kills on NiKo
Seriously though - based on current form G2 should take this. However NaVi have the better players across the board and if they can synchronise with each other for this match and going forward they will still be the biggest challenger to vitality in this tournament. I'll predict a 2-1 NaVi because I don't actually think NaVi are prepared well enough for this tournament and their map pool looks awful ATM, however they always play better with elimination on the line and if the pieces line up which they definitely can do, dust2 is the perfect map for NaVi to close this particular series out on. If they go to inferno, the win condition for NaVi would be the B players and how effective they are in taking control of banana. From G2s perspective, they probably would prefer to go to inferno over dust2 because they have multiples lines of attack to exploit (arch and B - do some cool fakeyboy stuff and keep s1mple over-rotating etc etc)
