Bookmaker Rating bet on the fourth playoff day:

Virtus.pro vs. PSG.LGD

The main question of the final of the lower bracket is how much Virtus.pro went on tilt after an offensive slap in the face from Tundra Esports in the final of the upper bracket. In general, this defeat does not change anything for VP in terms of the level of play – the team is still one of the strongest in the tournament, although the charm of invincibility has evaporated.

As for PSG.LGD, after a tough victory over Team Spirit, the Chinese team won an equally hard victory over T1. Both teams at this tournament were not in their best shape, so I would not regard these two matches as a litmus test of the PSG.LGD level of play. The Chinese are still playing with substitution, and from time to time Xiao8 sags in the game, even if sometimes PSG.LGD manages to knock the opponent off the track with non-standard drafts.

In the first round of the upper bracket, the teams had already met each other, and then the meeting ended with an easy victory for VP with a score of 2: 0. It is possible that VP will not be able to repeat such a confident success, but they still remain favorites of the meeting. Let’s not reinvent the wheel and bet on VP to win the match.

Bid: ₽1 500 rub. to win Virtus.pro with a coefficient of 1.67.

RuHub bet on the fourth playoff day:

Virtus.pro vs. PSG.LGD

Virtus.pro looked as cool as possible during the tournament, but yesterday they suffered a significant defeat. I think that such a defeat will affect the future game and the confidence of the team. While PSG.LGD continue to play in their incomprehensible style with a coach in the mid, and even win. The bears took the last meeting, their strategy was much more reliable, but even so LGD made a powerful comeback on the first map, and on the second they played most of the time. It seems to me that the meeting will be held in the same style, but this time the Chinese will be stronger. LGDs always get stronger closer to the finals, besides, the defeat of the bears can still affect.

Bid: 3,000 to win PSG.LGD with an accurate score of 2: 0 with odds 4.0.

Preliminary results:

Both analysts believe Virtus.pro will win, but the RuHub representative bet on the exact score with a high odds. If successful, this will significantly reduce the gap between the teams of forecasters.
