Liquid will most likely win their map pick if they play to a decent standard. Obviously they’re an unknown factor when it comes to form, I don’t know what kind of liquid will show up but going under the assumption they don’t play like shit then it will go to a third map but here’s where it gets tricky. Envy are good on inferno despite what their results show, they have lost a lot of close games and it would be wise of liquid to not underestimate them on Inferno so I think Cache would be a better choice but JDM said they had prepared a lot on the map so they may decide to choose it anyway. EnvyUs has a good chance at taking this match because they are decent on Cobblestone as well but I think Liquid are definitely stronger. Overall I will side with EnvyUs 2-0 but it could easily go Liquids way if Envy have an off match.
Suggested bet –
There’s a few ways you can bet here. If liquid choose Mirage then I would definitely take them to win that map but if not then I think a very small bet on EnvyUs 2-0 over Liquid but this is a risky game in the sense that it could go 2-1 depending on the map VETO, I would only suggest 2-0 if the maps are Cobblestone / Nuke as the first two maps.
Mirage bet amount (if Liquid choose it) – 2.5% if over 1.8 odds, if under then SKIP
2-0 bet amount if maps are Cobble / Nuke – 1.5% if odds are over 2.25
