Ninjas in Pyjamas have looked pretty inconsistent recently. They were supposed to play with Dev1ce who is one of the best players in the world, but due to personal reasons, he has been out for quite a while. NIP ended up beating Heroic 2-1, but other than that, they were losing to teams like Liquid, Astralis, and Vitality and even struggled against a team like Evil Geniuses, who isn’t so great. We are not sure what the future holds for this team, especially if Dev1ce doesn’t come back in the starting lineup.
Fnatic, on the other hand, are a brand new team to this level. They ended up keeping Krimz and Mezzi from the starting lineup and added three new players: Roej, Nicoodoz, and FASHR, who are all great individually. This is the first real test for Fnatic because, before this, they were playing in the lower tier, where they clearly dominated everybody. We have high expectations for this squad because they’re good players that can play at this level individually; it’s just a matter of time until they start showing it in this tier.
Fnatic: Krimz, Roej, Nicodoz, Mezzi, Fashr.
NiP: Brollan, Hampus, Plopski, Rez, Esetag.
NiP vs. Fnatic Prediction
This line here should be +2.5 instead of +3.5 like it is on most bookmakers, however Unibet have seemed to either forget or not be sure who picks what. In this case, Fnatic will pick map 1, which makes the correct line of +2.5 for these odds. We are taking this line for 1 unit.
Bet: Fnatic Map 1 +3.5 Handicap
