FURIA - Latest performance & results
FURIA is a Brazilian top team, which is not only in its region, but worldwide one of the absolute world best. The team has been playing together since the end of 2019 and has dominated the NA region in the online phase for a long time. Their return to Europe was initially disappointing with two defeats in the BLAST Premier case.
However, they made up for their losses at the recent BLAST Premier Fall Showdown, where they were awarded a ticket to the BLAST Finals.
Victories in their last three encounters with Liquid, Virtus.Pro and Isurus were all decided in the third map, but the team's performances still were very good. Individually FURIA is currently in very good shape, especially Rifler yuurih, but the team is generally known for its high skill level. The odds between FURIA and North make a tip on the favorite, as mentioned above, not very attractive.
North - Latest performance & results
North is an esport organization founded in 2017, which is currently in a state of change. The two Danes aizy and MSL were dropped out of the team due to the lack of success. Really fixed replacements have not yet been found.
For the time being, the Dane kristou came back from his loan at AGF and as a try-out North signed the Swede kreaz. The last appearances against Tier-1 teams were rather depressing for the Northerners. Against G2 and Heroic, North had no chance and after a successful qualifier the team left the tournament early at the IEM Beijing.
Anything but a clear defeat on the part of North would be a big surprise. A tip on the favorites FURIA with such low odds is not advisable though. New or recently changed lineups can always be surprising and above all have little to lose. In the match with FURIA there are odds of up to 3.20 available on North.
FURIA vs. North - Map-Veto prediction
In the game FURIA vs. North the tip regarding the maps to be played is on Inferno and Vertigo. While the Brazilians will ban Dust2, North has decided against Mirage by default. The pick from FURIA will be either Inferno or Train. While the team has chosen Inferno as their home pick, they could take advantage of the probably still rather weak communication from North on Train. North has Vertigo as their pick and chooses this map whenever possible. However, this is also a very good map for FURIA. It remains to be seen if North might change their pick to Overpass or Nuke.
As a decision maker, Overpass would be a good option, where both teams feel relatively comfortable, but also could not completely convince.
FURIA vs. North - Prediction
Between FURIA and North we would not recommend a winning bet, given the odds. The odds on Favorit FURIA are very low but a victory by North is simply unrealistic.
Possible would be a result bet of 2:0 for the Brazilians. For example Bet365 offers odds of 2.20. As a bet for this tip we would recommend 5 units.
What are the advantages and disadvantages of the tip?
- PRO: They should be clearly superior on both their Pick Inferno and Vertigo games
- PRO: North lacks any structure and communication.
- CONTRA: FURIA has given up a map in each of their last three games.
