The second day of action at VALORANT Champions Tour 2021 Stage 3 Masters Berlin will serve us with three one-sided affairs, starting with a clash between Korea’s top seed, Vision Strikers, and the Southeast Asia Challengers runners-up, Paper Rex.

Esports betting sites are pricing the teams based on the perceived strength of their respective regions, which explains why Paper Rex are heavy outsiders. Still, the last time we saw Southeast Asian teams play was in Reykjavik, where X10 Esports showed that while SEA teams lack talent, they can use interesting tactics and innovative team compositions.

Like their League of Legends rosters, SEA Valorant squads also like to play with a very fast tempo, which can catch some slower teams off guard. While all that should work in Paper Rex’s favour, it’s hard to find a solid reason to side with them over Vision Strikers, who are one of the tournament’s dark horses.

GAMBIT ESPORTS vs CRAZY RACCOON VALORANT BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

VALORANT Odds: Gambit -1666.67 at BetOnline | Raccoon +564 at BetOnline

Group C looks very cut and dried, with 100 Thieves and Gambit Esports the two clear favourites to advance to the playoffs. Therefore it makes a lot of sense for esports bookmakers to price Gambit as short favourites for their meeting with Crazy Raccoon.

The Japanese squad placed ninth-10th in Reykjavik in May and have since moved to a seven-man roster to introduce more flexibility. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean that they’ve improved. The firepower is there, but Racoon lack in execution, particularly in attack.

Gambit Esports are one of the top three teams at the tournament, and they shouldn’t be losing games like this one. The quality gap is large enough to say that the Russians won’t drop more than a few rounds across both maps.

KEYD STARS vs TEAM ENVY VALORANT BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

VALORANT Odds: Keyd +352 at BetOnline | Envy -666.67 at BetOnline

Team Envy are rightly the bookies’ favourite to qualify from Group B. However, while Envy tower above KRU Esports, ZETA DIVISION, and Keyd Stars as the most stacked roster, that doesn’t necessarily mean that they’re untouchable.

As the Valorant betting odds suggest, Envy should stomp Keyd Stars, but the latter have a win condition with Olavo “heat” Marcelo, who is the type of player that can win you games. Envy should have a solid response to heat with Jaccob “yay” Whiteaker as their star duelist, but it’s up to debate who of the two is a better player.

Everything points to an easy win for Envy, but a lot will come down to which team shows up on the day. While Envy to win in straight sets at -169.49 seems like the best choice, there is more value on Keyd Stars with a map handicap.
