These two teams have not met each other in a official game till now!
Looking at performance of these two there is no doubt that TSM are looking pretty scary! Although they started slow in their opening game versus Renegades form Autralia (16:11 win at train), they show us the real fire-power they have when they are all warmed up versus Ninjas from Sweden – 16:3 win at cache! The boys from Denmark are looking unbeatable when they are on their A-game, that’s for sure!
On the other hand we have the surprise of the tournament namely Kinguin. The international squad started out slow suffering a loss versus Luminosity in their opening match (6:16 at overpass), but came out stronger than ever a day later when they overcame the likes of Immunity (16:13 at dust2) and, most importantly and surprisingly, Cloud9 (16:13 at dust2). Their confidence level should sky rocket after making Top 8 at the Major and guaranteeing themselves a place at the next one!
Prediction: As much as everyone wants to hype Kinguin for becoming a “Legends” team and beating Cloud9, let’s be real – if they would have played any other map than dust2 (one of Kinguins best maps, as it is the ultimate DM map, and favors teams with individually skilled players over others), the outcome of those game would probably be quite different! They got lucky with valve randoming dust2 for them twice and they were smart enough to take the advantage of that. TSM is a beast on a completely different level than any of the teams Kinguin have faced so far. I’m struggling to see Kinguin winning 1 map against TSM, let alone two maps to win the whole Bo3 series!
Suggestion: Currently odds on CSGLounge are about right I would say. There are only two options here – either you go big on TSM to make profit, or you skip this one! As mush as you want to be a passenger on train “Kinguin”, you should also know the right time when you should get off of it as the rails are about to end!
Don’t bet what you can’t afford to lose! Good luck with your bets!
