Outside of their dominant 13-1 win over Wildcard in the opening round, Virtus.pro have been far from impressive at IEM Chengdu. After scraping past FlyQuest in the upper-bracket semifinal, VP were convincingly beaten by Astralis in the upper-bracket final and will go into this clash as underdogs.

David “n0rb3r7” Daniyelyan and Evgeniy “FL1T” Lebedev have been carrying this squad so far, and if they want to challenge G2 Esports, they will need help from the rest of the team.

Like their opposition, G2 have been good without being impressive. They have recorded back-to-back 2-0 victories against Lynn Vision and Heroic, but there is still something missing that is stopping the world number six from going to the next level.

Ilya “m0NESY” Osipov has put his teammates on his back throughout this event, recording the third-best rating (1.35) of all players at IEM Chengdu. However, if m0NESY doesn’t get some help from others in this series, it could be curtains for G2 in China.

Counter-Strike 2 betting sites have the odds right, with very little separating these two teams. It is hard to tip either team with confidence, so betting on the total maps market looks to be the smart play.

Best Odds: Liquid +162 at BetOnline | FaZe -227.27 at BetOnline

Team Liquid and FaZe Clan are two rosters going in opposite directions heading into the pointy end of the tournament. Liquid were completely outplayed by MOUZ in their 0-2 loss, while FaZe Clan made light work of Cloud9 and FlyQuest on Wednesday.

After taking down Heroic and G2 Esports in their first two series, Team Liquid appeared to have turned the corner with this new roster; however, the MOUZ result showed some cracks in their system against very good opposition.

FaZe Clan are renowned for being slow starters, and after Astralis destroyed them 2-0 in the upper-bracket semifinal, it appears as though the Danish squad woke up the world’s best Counter-Strike 2 roster.

David “frozen” Čerňanský and Helvijs “broky” Saukants have taken over for FaZe in their last two matches, and if they continue their hot form, Liquid won’t stand a chance.

It wouldn’t surprise anyone if FaZe Clan came out and won this match 2-0 in dominant fashion; however, with the round line set at 5.5 for the series, the handicap on FaZe looks to be a great play.

FaZe Clan -5.5 rounds
