Here we go, week 5 feature the much-awaited meeting of DPC 2021 SEA Upper Div group stage leaders. Neon Esports vs Fnatic, February 18 at 13:00 EET.
Neon is currently on top of the group stage with 5-0 records (10-3 on maps). Yeah, the Philippian team is in superb form, perhaps the guys will get a direct invite to the next regional tourney now, hehe. At the group stage, Neon has crushed all the solid opponents apart from Fnatic. Will the team call this Thursday a day?! Anyways, Neon has only lost a single match in the last 10 games.
Fnatic is keeping a solid performance, enjoying second place with 4-1 records (9-2 in maps). But is this the top of Fnatic ambitions? Hell, no! The organization positions itself as the regional leader and Neon’s current first place is like an offense for them. Shouldn’t Fnatic lose to BOOM everything could be different? The team is not in its best run, with only 6/10 victories in the latest matches in the SEA region.
The bookies still favor Fnatic, giving almost equal odd on Over/Under. It’s a real tough game to call. That’s why I will go for two options – safe and risky. Safe pick – Map Advantage Neon Esports +1.5 with odds 1.36. Risky pick – Correct Score – 1-2 Fnatic with odds 3.5. Stake whatever you feel right.
