FPX vs KRU Esports

Predictions: FPX to win

VALORANT Odds: 1.3

Betting Site: Odds provided by GG.Bet

When: September 8 , 2022 – 16:00 CEST

The last team to advance to the playoffs from Group C in VALORANT Champions 2022 will be determined at the end of the battle between FPX and KRÜ Esports. The teams also faced off in the opening match of the group, with FPX coming out on top. After the series ended with close scores of 14-12 and 13-10, it was clear that the teams were close in terms of power.

After the win, FPX played against North American representative XSET in order to advance directly from the group to the playoffs. But contrary to expectations, they lost the series 2-1 and had to take part in the decider match. KRÜ have been performing well in this tournament, but in such an important match, they might not be enough for FPX.

100 Thieves vs Fnatic

Types of bets : Fnatic to win

Odds: 1.83

The North American and European rivalry will once again take center stage at VALORANT Champions 2022. Considered one of the strongest teams before the tournament, Fnatic surprised everyone with their scoring here. First, they lost to 100 Thieves in the opening match of Group D, and then they managed to defeat FURIA at the last moment with a lot of difficulty.

Normally, I would say that Fnatic are one step ahead in this series, but their recent play has made me doubt them. If they don’t bounce back and perform like they used to, 100 Thieves might eliminate Fnatic.

Leviatán vs LOUD

Predictions: Leviatán

VALORANT Odds: 2.11

Betting Site: Odds provided by GG.Bet

When: September 09, 2022 – 16:00 CEST

After many tournaments, LATAM’s first seed has changed for the last 2 global events. Leviatán took over KRÜ’s throne at Masters Copenhagen, where they were eliminated early despite showing good games. In the most important tournament of the season, they showed everyone what a strong team they are. 

They started the tournament in Group A, which featured tough teams like Team Liquid, Paper Rex vs Edward Gaming. And by subjugating their opponents, they managed to become the first team to make it to the playoffs in the tournament. 

LOUD started this season as a team that Brazilian fans expected a lot from, but ended up disappointing in the last tournament. Although they didn’t have as difficult a group as Leviatán, they managed to finish second in a group with ZETA, OpTic and KRÜ. However, they are not where they want to be in terms of  gameplay. Leviatán are one step ahead in this series.

Team Liquid vs OpTic Gaming

Predictions: Total maps over 2.5

VALORANT Odds: 2.09

When: September 10, 2022 – 16:00 CEST

After winning the first international tournament of 2022, OpTic Gaming are looking to end this season with a bang by winning the year-end grand tournament. Team Liquid, on the other hand, feel it’s time for some success on the global stage after their roster changes. The teams will face off in Round 1 of the Playoffs, giving us a good matchup.

OpTic Gaming are far from their old dominance, even though they managed to win the matches. The teams playing against them manage to take at least a map point from them. Liquid are also a team capable of doing that. However, at the end of the day, even though the North American representative is the better team, it makes more sense to say that the series will extend to the third map instead of making an end-of-match prediction.
