Lee “Rogue” Byeong Yeol and Kim “Cure” Doh Wook will clash on Thursday in the opening round of Group D at IEM Katowice 2021. This will mark their first meeting since January when Cure reverse-swept his compatriot to secure his 18th head-to-head victory in 43 meetings.

Rogue has since played 16 games and won just five, so it’s fair to say he is not in good form. Rogue is also 1-5 in his last six outings, but perhaps he deserves some slack for those results since he had to face the likes of Joo “Zest” Sung-wook, Cho “Trap” Sung Ho and Park “Zoun” Han-sol.

Cure has played 36 games since his last meeting with Rogue and won all but eight. He also enters this match on a seven-game winning streak that includes a 3-0 sweep of Zoun last Wednesday. With equal odds offered on both players, it’s not hard to pick a side.

PARTING vs STATS SCII BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

SCII Betting Odds: PartinG +125 at BetOnline | Stats -169.49 at BetOnline

Won “PartinG” Lee Sak is priced as an underdog for this bout, which is fair since he is 0-5 against Kim “Stats” Dae Yeob. That seems unlikely to change considering Stats is 13-1 across his last 14 fixtures.

Even though a moneyline bet on Stats is not a bad option, you sometimes have to risk it for the biscuit and trust the favourite to cover the handicap. That’s not to say PartinG is a bad player, but he has faced mostly weaker opponents of late while Stats has made tougher payer and defeated a significant majority of them. In this form, Stats shouldn’t drop a map.
