Syman -244/ Nemiga +172


Syman faces off against Nemiga in this weeks matchup of the LOOT.BET closed qualifiers.

Both Syman and Nemiga find themselves in the losers bracket as Syman lost against CHAOS and Nemiga lost vs Windigo Academy. 

Syman faced off against CHAOS where CHAOS ultimately dominated. The first map was train where CHAOS won 16-7. The second map was even worse for Syman as they only managed to pull out four round wins and ultimately lose 16-4 on overpass.  Syman could not just get anything started as their top player was SANJI who posted 38 kills and 35 deaths. SANJI did have an average damage rating (ADR) of 107.3 which is impressive.  If Syman is looking to stay in this tournament look for SANJI to continue to have good games and get this team back on track. 

Nemiga comes off a loss against Windigo Academy. Nemiga started off great as they played their favorite map Dust2 and beat Windigo Academy 16-7.  When Nemiga is not on Dust2 you can really see this team hit a speed bump as they did in this matchup. Nemiga dropped the next map 16-8 and then ultimately lost the third map in a heartbreaking overtime loss. Nemiga has shown that they can compete in these tournaments and I am looking for this game to be a close one. 

In head to head matchups Syman holds the record at 2-0 with wins on train and nuke. Map selection is key here to find the best odds. I believe Syman will ban Dust2 and not allow Nemiga to play their best map. If this happens I am looking at a clean 2-0 sweep by Syman. I like Syman to take this game 2-0 and for the map totals to be under 2.5. There is no way that Syman allows Nemiga to play on Dust2 and that is the only map that they would have a chance against Syman on. 


Temple’s Pick Syman to win -244/ Score to be 2:0 +110/ Under 2.5 maps played -159
