Natus Vincere vs G2 Esports

Predictions: Natus Vincere to win

VALORANT Odds: 2.04

Betting Site: Odds provided by GG.Bet

When: August 11, 2022 – 16:00 CEST

After an unexpectedly good start to the tournament with a win over Guid Esports, Natus Vincere will face a do-or-die match against G2 Esports after the loss against Liquid. There is no margin for error for both teams in the Lower-Bracket. A possible defeat will shatter their dreams of VALORANT Champions 2022.

As I mentioned above, Na’Vi’s first win was against tournament favorite Guild Esports. They played a superior game against their opponents to get this victory. G2 Esports, on the other hand, did not start the LCQ well enough. Both in terms of playstyle and results, they fell short of expectations.

Natus Vincere is closer to eliminating their opponent from the tournament.

OG LDN UTD vs Guild Esports

Types of bets : Guild Esports

Odds: 1.54

Betting Site: Odds provided by GG.Bet

When: August 11, 2022 – 19:00 CEST

Two teams that are surprises the fans in different ways will face each other for survival in the tournament. OG, who changed their technical staff in the off-season, reaped the rewards of this change with a great start to the tournament. The European team defeated G2 Esports in their opening match, but then narrowly lost to M3 Champions to drop to the lower-bracket.

On the Guild Esports side, there was disappointment. Guild was relatively the strongest team in the tournament, but a loss in the first series put them in a difficult position. Even though this unexpected result is demoralizing, Guild is a strong enough team to bounce back.

100 Thieves vs Sentinels

Predictions: 100 Thieves to win

VALORANT Odds: 1.65

Betting Site: Odds provided by GG.Bet

When: August 11, 2022 – 22:00 CEST

The Lower-Bracket of VCT 2022 North America Last Chance Qualifier features a matchup that could shatter viewership records. Two teams with the eyes of the world on them will meet in the Lower-Bracket after their losses.

Sentinels has gotten much better after the transfers they made. As a matter of fact, the same is true for 100 Thieves. The biggest difference between them is that 100T has been competing with their new roster for a longer period of time. This is a very important criterion and puts them one step ahead.

Cloud9 vs NRG

Predictions: Cloud9 to win

VALORANT Odds: 1.66

Valorant Betting Site: Odds provided by GG.Bet

When: August 12, 2022 – 01:00 CEST

After a bad Stage 2, Cloud9 chose to keep their roster intact and started the LCQ looking much better. Especially with the frag contribution of their in-game leader Vanity, they were able to easily turn the man advantage in their favor during the round. 

NRG, on the other hand, has always looked like a team that plays an average game, but when push comes to shove, they can get out of hand. After consecutive unsuccessful Stages, C9 has to win this match.
