Pickswise's Expert Predictions & Analysis

Money Line Pick

It was a very convincing victory for fnatic Rising as they improved their standing by knocking-off Brazilian team FURIA Academy in a 16-5 thrashing. Questions look to be answered as fnatic will enter just its fourth ever match at 2-1. They have a big task ahead of them as they take on 3-0 BIG Academy. BIG has blown past NAVI Junior, Astralis Talent, and mouz NXT, and look to take full control atop the leaderboard. They will have to continue to lean on Aqua who’s numbers are big, with an average of 1.17 kills per round and a current average rating of 1.65. That is among the highest of all players in this event. Not bad for a team that is unranked in the world rankings. Well both teams find themselves in that predicament. BIG Academy has some rising stars, and are a good bet here.

Over Under Pick

BIG Academy is coming off a victory that saw them fail to hold their opponent to under 10 points for the second-straight match. They can’t afford to do that again against this fnatic Rising team, who has combined with each of their last three opponents for some high scoring matches. That includes two matches that resulted in well over 26.5 rounds in each match. Over 26.5 is a good play.
