The long-awaited SLTV StarSeries Season 5 finals are starting 28th of May. In the first day of the event, we are going to have eight matches in total which are all going to be played in best of three formats. The first day is going to be quite long but really exciting.
In the first match, we have the two big North-American teams Liquid and NRG battling it out. Liquid is coming to this tournament as big favorites to win after a hard loss against Astralis in the final of ESL Pro League finals. Many expected that Liquid would not stand a chance against Astralis, but the North-American team surprised us all by winning one map and playing two really close maps.
NRG was the big surprises of this year. The team dominated the North American division of ESL Pro League but fell short in the finals. NRG is still a really dangerous team when underestimated and they have proven to be able to compete against the best teams of the world.
NRG has won Liquid seven out of nine times in the last three months. All these games were before TACO joined the Team Liquid roster but the stat is still quite unbelievable. NRG has been killing Liquid.
The only question mark of this match is that if NRG has studied Liquid’s new playstyle. When TACO joined Liquid’s roster, the team got a huge boost in results.
We believe that the match is going to be fairly even and that both teams will win their own maps. 2,20 odds are great for over 2,5 maps.
- Total Maps Played Over 2,5 @ 2,20
