Fnatic vs 100 Thieves

Predictions: Fnatic to win

VALORANT Odds: 1.64

Betting Site: Odds provided by GG.Bet

When: September 2 , 2022 – 17:00 CEST

Group D was called the group of death by many after the draw. Except for 1 team, the other 3 teams have enough strength to beat each other. The opening match will feature the North American and European rivalry once again.

There are a lot of people who see 100 Thieves above Fnatic. However, the way Fnatic prepare for tournaments has always been a step ahead of other teams. With two young and talented squads going head to head, Fnatic could upset the opposition. 100 Thieves also have a very serious chance. A risky match.


Types of bets : DRX to win

Odds: 1.11

The Korean representative now wants to achieve greater success in international tournaments. Stax, the team’s star, echoed this sentiment in an interview. Despite being perhaps the best team in the world in terms of tactical play, they have always struggled when the game descends into chaos. If they want to win this tournament, they will have to level up both individually and consistently.

FURIA are considered the weakest team in this group. Brazilian teams have always had strong aimpower and should be feared. However, the game has evolved so much that aimpower alone is not enough to win big tournaments like this. I’m sure they will give DRX a hard time, but DRX will win the match.

OpTic Gaming vs LOUD

Predictions: OpTic to win

VALORANT Odds: 1.89

One of the most common matchups we’ve seen on the global stage this year is back in VALORANT Champions 2022. The finalists of Stage 1 Masters have been placed in the same group and will compete in the Winners’ match to be the first team to advance from the group to the playoffs. 

VALORANT Champions 2022 Group C and D - Predictions and Analysis

In the first match of the group, OpTic unexpectedly struggled against BOOM Esports. Despite losing the first map of the series, they managed to keep their composure as always and won the series 2-1. On the other hand, LOUD played a relatively easy match against ZETA. The match, which was played at high speed, ended with LOUD dominating the match.

Although they had a hard time in the opening match, OpTic are one step ahead in this series.

XSET vs XERXIA Esports

Predictions: XSET to win

VALORANT Odds: 1.46

When: September 03, 2022 – 14:00 CEST

After watching their other opponents in the tournament, it’s time for the teams in Group C to take the stage. The first match of the group is between North American team XSET and APAC runner-up XERXIA. 

XSET had a disappointing result in their last international tournament. Despite coming in with the title of the best team in their region, they couldn’t get any wins and had an early exit from the competition. However, this tournament will be different for them. With the experience they have gained and the extensive preparation period they have had, I am almost certain that they will perform much better. They will beat their opponents in the opening match.
