Check out the Previous Post about SK.
SK will be coming off a very disappointing match against Ancient and the dismay and disarray within the team might still be quite raw in the player’s minds. However this map is Mirage which is traditionally one of the best maps for SK. They did lose quite badly to Faze yesterday, however 16-3 does not do them justice and there were some other external factors in play. Assuming Astralis win the first map on Train, the odds for Astralis are bound to skyrocket. As such this should be a good low bet on SK.
Astralis are one of the best teams on Mirage. The team have defeated Mirage powerhouses such as Virtus Pro, NaVi and other highly skilled teams before. Astralis are known for their passive CT side, they let go of mid unlike some of the other good teams on Mirage. However if Karrigan is hitting his shots, he can go aggressive and play the AWP on mid.
Most of their good performances on Mirage are due to the fact that Karrigan goes beast mode on this map. However for most of the past few weeks/months, Karrigan has been underperforming.
The Prediction : 67%-33% Astralis
The bet : Low on SK
