The second day of StarSeries is being played today. We have eight matches in total which are all being played in best of three formats. The day is full of some great Counter Strike! We are going to publish two tips for today. This is the first of the evening. In this match, the Swedish youngsters “Godsent” and the North-American veterans “Liquid” are fighting for their second victories in the tournament. Both teams won their first matches which means that the winner of this match has almost guaranteed a spot in the playoffs.
Godsent started the tournament by crushing Renegades 2-0 (16-3, 16-3). Both of the maps were really one-sided. The Swedes took a crazy start in the tournament. They have been a little erratic in their online games but they have a huge amount of potential and skill.
Liquid started the tournament in the same way as Godsent. They won their first game 2-0 (16-6, 16-11) against NRG. Liquid has been the strongest team in the world beside Astralis and is the ultimate favorite to win the tournament. Liquid has won almost everyone except Astralis.
These teams have never met before which makes this match really interesting. By looking at the win percentages of both teams, we can see that the teams are really even. We have to take it to account that Godsent is usually playing versus a lot worse teams than Liquid.
The match is not everything thanks to the Swiff BO3 system used in the tournament. One or two losses does not mean that you are out of the tournament.
We assume that Godsent can take rounds off from Liquid but we don’t believe that they can manage to win a map off from Liquid. The match can be really close and even but Liquid should take it home 2-0 with their experience. Our selection for the match is Liquid -1,5 with the odds 2,20.
- Liquid -1,5 @ 2,20
