Liquid and Hellraisers are matched up against each other in this Group stage match for the MLG Columbus 2016 Main Qualifier.
Liquid have been looking decent in their recent matches against most of the NA teams. They have had several roster changes which include getting Simple and Koosta in order to strengthen their firepower. However due to regulations, Koosta will not be playing for Liquid in this qualifier. Adren will be playing as that was the roster that Liquid had entered when they had registered. Liquid have been practising hard recently where they have been winning against most of the better NA matches. The only reason that Liquid seems to favored in this match is due to the fact that Hellraisers have not been looking too active recently.
Hellraisers have not been too active recently. Their matches have been last played quite sometime ago and that was the last we saw of them. The fact is also that Hellraisers will be flying into Columbus from their country in order to play in this LAN qualifier. As such they are facing a timezone difference along with a huge change in their environment.
All in all, Liquid seem to have the advantage in their gameplay, results and the home game advantage.
The Prediction : 70%-30% Liquid
The Bet : Low to Medium on LIquid
Risk : Medium
