Team Vitality were very good in their opening round match, defeating Elevate 3-1 in a best-of-five series to set up a match with Complexity in the upper-bracket quarter-finals. Vitality took the opening map of the series before losing the second and third to go down 1-2. However, after a hard-fought overtime win on map four, they steadied and won the fifth and final map to take the series 3-2. Vitality came into the Spring Major as the top ranked European team, but after a close series with North America’s fourth ranked team, they have shown that they are beatable.

Team BDS dropped their opening map of their Spring Major campaign against Gen.G; however, they have gone onto win then next six maps, defeating Gen.G 3-1 and Rule One 3-0 to storm into the upper-bracket semi-finals. They will go into this match-up with Team Vitality seeking to flip the script on their last three encounters with their European counterparts, as they have lost 3-1, 4-1 and 4-1 over the last two months.

Team BDS will go into this semi-final with a lot of confidence after two dominant wins, while Team Vitality will be looking to atone for their struggles against Complexity. Although Vitality has had the wood over their opponents recently, we expect BDS to turn the tables and win this match.

Team BDS to win

Karmine Corp started their RLCS Spring Major in the worst possible fashion as they lost the first two maps of their opening round series to Ground Zero, before they flicked the switch and dominated then final three maps to win the series 3-2. Their upper-bracket quarter-final started similar, as Spacestation Gaming took the opening map, but much like Karmine’s opening series, they came roaring back to rattle off three straight map wins to clinch a place in the upper-bracket semi-finals with a 3-1 win.

Moist Esports have experienced a much less stressful opening two matches, as they have won both series 3-1 against FURIA and OpTic Gaming to book their place in the semi-finals. However, in saying that, Moist have gone to overtime on four of their eight maps played. Moist will be seeking to turn the tables on their 1-4 loss to Karmine Corp at the EU Spring Invitational. They did manage to flip the script at the Fall Major, as they lost to them earlier in the tournament (3-0), and then knocked them out of the quarter-finals of the playoffs with a 4-1 victory.

Karmine Corp will enter this series as the heavy favourite with most bookies, and they are who we will be siding with for this contest. We will be taking them at the -1.5-match line with this market available with many betting sites across the globe.

Karmine Corp -1.5 maps
