Very nice match to bet on, the odds are juicy, and both teams are in an excellent form. During the group stage, North was 2nd in the Group B with three matches played, two wins, one loss, a round difference of +10 and six points. ENCE was in the same group but on the 1st place with two played maps, two wins, a round difference of +27 and six points. In the Upper bracket, North demolished team Vitality 2-0 (16-14 on Nuke and 16-12 on Dust2), while ENCE won against team Valiance&CO 2-1 (9-16 on Dust2, 16-11 on Mirage, and 16-9 on Train). If we look at those maps, North is very favorable on Cache, Dust2, and Inferno, but somehow they played a lot of Train games in recent weeks with a 50-50 win-lose rate so we can see that map today again. ENCE is very good Nuke, Mirage, and that Train, Cache is their best map at the moment, but the sample of played Cache maps is too small, so i won't consider that. These two teams played two matches in 2018, and the score is 1-1, with both matches going to over 2,5 maps. The good thing would be to bet on over 2,5 maps, why? Because their matches in 2018 were all very close, meaning only he finesses impacted the winners.
I believe ENCE will be the smarter team today, they have such a great form and those wins in recent weeks agaisnt various teams and skills will help them in today's match. Safe bet will be ENCE +1,5 handicap, or medium bet on over 2,5 maps.
Good luck to all who bet, and don't forget to gamble responsibly!
