G2 Esports vs OG LDN UTD

Predictions: OG LDN UTD to win

VALORANT Odds: 2.97

Betting Site: Odds provided by GG.Bet

When: August 07, 2022 – 16:00 CEST

G2 Esports will open the VCT 2022 EMEA Last Chance Qualifier. After a successful run in Stage 1, G2 once again showed that they had a continuity problem and failed to even make the playoffs in Stage 2.

When individual performances are not at their peak, G2 Esports struggles to win matches, and we have witnessed this in previous matches. The two teams were in the same group in the last stage, and in their meeting there, OG LDN UTD came out on top. But that doesn’t mean that OG is in a better position than their opponent.

OG LDN UTD, formerly LDN UTD, managed to spend the entire 2022 season in the EMEA league. During this time, despite having talented players, it struggled to win series. To overcome this problem, the organization changed the coaching staff before the LCQ and brought in an assistant coach.

The changes could pay off and OG could steal this series.

M3 Champions vs Acend

Types of bets : M3 Champions to win

Odds: 1.62

When: August 07, 2022 – 19:00 CEST

The two once strongest teams on the EMEA scene have been on a downward spiral throughout the 2022 season. And their last chance to stop the slide is the VCT 2022 EMEA Last Chance Qualifier. 

After a bad Stage 1, Acend had a good start to Stage 2. With back-to-back wins, they made it to the playoffs as group runners-up. However, 2 quick defeats in the knockout stage caused them to say goodbye to the tournament early. 

M3 Champions was the most dominant team of the era, but it’s hard to predict how they will perform lately. One thing is for sure though, they usually play well in the playoffs. Considering that and the fact that their opponents recently added a new player to their roster, M3 Champions is one step ahead for the win.

Team Liquid vs BBL Esports

Predictions: Team Liquid to win

VALORANT Odds: 1.36

Betting Site: Odds provided by GG.Bet

When: August 08, 2022 – 16:00 CEST

The rivalry between Team Liquid and BBL has become the subject of social media posts. These two teams have battled each other in almost every important qualifier matchup, and Team Liquid has emerged victorious in all of them.

In some matches of BBL Esports in Stage 2, they performed better than they usually do. However, they suffered because they couldn’t extend this form to the whole season. They’re coming into the tournament with a new IGL, bringing CyderX and moving pAura to the inactive roster. We will see the impact of this against Liquid.

Although BBL comes here with a new transfer, Liquid is a much stronger team in terms of core and has a better chance of winning the series.

Guild Esports vs Natus Vincere

Predictions: Guild Esports to win

VALORANT Odds: 1.54

When: August 08, 2022 – 19:00 CEST

Guild Esports, the tournament’s favorite, will face CIS team Natus Vincere in Round 1. After finally qualifying for the international tournament at Stage 2, the team was eliminated in the early stages of the playoffs and had to play LCQ to qualify for VALORANT Champions 2022.

Natus Vincere is no pushover. No matter who they face, they manage to give their opponents a hard time, but they can’t get a win. I don’t think this scenario will change against Guild, so it would be a big surprise if Na’Vi wins this series.
