FACEIT Asia Minor 2018 Group A Predictions
Group A will start with VG.Flash playing against SCARZ Absolute. Neither team has any recorded matchup history yet, but VG.Flash is objectionably the better team here. With relatively little information on SCARZ Absolute, this may be worth missing. it could go either way.
Afterward, Renegades will go up against B.O.O.T-d. This should be a fairly clean win for Renegades. The now multi-national team has consistently fought through Minor events like this without breaking much of a sweat, so this should be another walk in the park for them.
In fact, we'd suggest betting on Renegades all of the way through Group A.
As for other matchups, it's worth avoiding, especially the best of ones. SCARZ Absolute, VG.Flash, and B.O.O.T-d are all teams that haven't played enough international events against each other to gather enough valuable information from.
In summary, bet on Renegades throughout Group A and you should come out with a profit.
FACEIT Asia Minor 2018 Group B Predictions
Group B will start with TyLoo against 5Power Gaming. TyLoo is one of the strongest teams in Asia right now, and TyLoo has consistently won against 5Power in previous matchups. It should be an easy one for TyLoo.
Next up is Tainted Minds versus Uniquestars. Tainted Minds is a fairly newer lineup of Australian players that have all had a reasonable level of experience with each other. INS and Yam are names that come to mind.
Uniquestars are, on the other hand, a team of relatively unknown players. We're not quite sure what Uniquestars are capable of, so even though Tainted Minds should be the one to take this, there's the chance that Uniquestars are secretly a team not to be reckoned with.
Ultimately, if you want to focus your bets on one team, go with TyLoo. Besides that, bets on Tainted Mind against 5Power could be smart. Everything else should be avoided.
FACEIT Asia Minor Playoff Betting Predictions
Out of the eight qualified teams, we see TyLoo and Renegades securing a spot. The remaining two spots will really depend on how the event plays out. Ultimately, though, both TyLoo and Renegades should have a fairly safe route to the grand final, so bet on any matches where they are playing against other teams.
Where there are matchups between TyLoo and Renegades, historically, Renegades has always had the upper hand. That's not to say TyLoo haven't won games against Renegades, though. It'd be a risky bet, but Renegades have a slightly smaller chance to come out on top.
