OK, so we have the 1st two from Group A forZe and AVANGAR who won, and now we need to see who will be the best in Group B. This is a best of 1 and the odds heavily favor Sprout, because they are ranked better and have a better game rating in recent matches. It is strange to see how Windstrike has such a hard time with two new great players in their team, but somehow they lose a lot of games. Sprout on the other hand also had some troubles during the end of July, but they kept their shiet together and started winning, out of four games they lost three maps so be careful when you bet, it may go in over 2,5 maps. These two teams played a lot of head-to-head games and the current score is four wins for Winstrike while Sprout has four, only one game went to overtime.
I will go with Sprout to win here.
Good luck to all who bet, and may the odds be ever in your favor!
