Natus Vincere: Everything is going well
Natus Vincere had the best year in the history of the organization. The team won everything they could. Their player has become the best in the world in terms of individual skill. The team achieved the highest results everywhere. After that, the team had a five-week rest and may have lost some form, but in the first round of the BLAST Premier: Spring Groups, the team got a weak opponent, which NaVi must beat in any form. The meeting is in bo1 format, so let's start with the maps that the teams definitely won't play. Natus Vincere will get rid of Vertigo (although at some point Born to Win should start playing the map), and the Brazilians will remove Mirage. Natus Vincere is also likely to remove Overpass and Ancient. Of course, instead of Overpass, Inferno may be removed, as the Brazilians play this map more, but if NaVi does not pay attention to the opponent, it will get rid of these maps. Which completely suits Born to win.
MiBR: Not much chance
MiBR is the weakest participant in the tournament. Yes, Team Liquid has a lower rating because of the reshuffle, and EG has no rating, but I do not think anyone will argue that it's Brazilians, the main contenders for last place. Although if you look at the individual ratings of players from Brazil, it may seem that a team of stars came to the tournament, which is about to crush everyone. The weakest individual rating on the team is 1.14. All other players are hovering around 1.20 and above. Natus Vincere is second to the Brazilians in this regard. In all seriousness, these rankings are all stuffed in their region against teams, not in the top 50 world rankings, which makes them much less important. As for maps, MiBR won't mind playing Ancient or Inferno. It will all depend on what Natus Vincere bans. Either way, it's very hard to find a lead for the underdog in matches like this. On any map, Born to Win will be favourites. On any map, they should win comfortably.
Expert Betting Tips
Natus Vincere will be playing their first match after a five-week break. It can be assumed that the team is relaxed and will need some time to unwind, but in the first round, the team got a too weak opponent, whom they need to smash. Natus Vincere's odds of winning with a handicap (-6.5) are 1.68, which looks good.
