DreamHack Winter – A clear, sure prediction for Group B

The Group B matches will start an hour and half after first the matches in Group A. Mousesports, BIG, Team EnVyUs and North Academy will also be competing in Group B. North Academy are more or less the underdogs here. Mousesports are the sure prediction in these matches, as is very evident in the pairings below. We’ll tell you more as we go along.

These matches will be LAN matches, and the winners of matches one and two will face each other in match three, all on the same day. The winner of match three in both groups will directly qualify for the playoffs. The losing team will be given one more chance in a Decider match, where they will face the winner of the Elimination match. The losing team in the Elimination match will be eliminated from the event. Both Elimination and Decider matches will be a best of three.


A sure prediction – Mousesports will crush North Academy

North Academy are undoubtedly an up-and-coming team, but the accent is on the ‘up-and-coming’. They have a hard time against Tier two teams, and now will be facing mousesports, a team that can really take on the best teams in the world and win. North Academy also do not have enough experience in LAN matches, and certainly not enough to go up against a pro team. They did win some Minor Leagues, but this is a different matter. On the other hand, mousesports have already won a Premier League with their current roster, and have also been playing in perfect form recently. And when mousesports play in perfect from, that means they decimate teams like Team Liquid.

Statistics on the recent performances of both teams

North Academy have only won four matches out of twelve played, which gives them a win rate of just thirty three percent. That is well below average, and could be considered low even for a Tier three team. Mousesports have won fifty nine percent of their LAN matches, which shows how ill-matched these two teams are. Mousesports have a fifty nine percent chance of winning a pistol round as well. As this equals their win rate overall, that means that if they win a pistol round, they also win the match. This match is certainly the sure prediction for today, so make sure that your stake is big enough to cover potential losses in less sure match-ups. This is a sure prediction. On this day and in this match, mousesports cannot lose, and the odds are running at about 1.22 on mousesports.

BIG tends to dominate Team EnVyUs in LAN matches

These teams have fought in two best of three LAN matches in the past, and BIG defeated Team EnVyUs in both, with a considerable difference in score. This will be the first LAN best of one match ever fought between these teams. While there is a tendency to dominate here on the part of BIG, the first match of the day is nevertheless recommended for a serious stake. It’s a sure win, while this match is partially governed by fortune.

Some statistics on these teams

If you look at their overall stats, EnVyUs has done reasonably well, and BIG only have a fifty four percent chance of a win against them. This makes this combination too balanced for a reliable prediction. As we said earlier, we do suggest that you put all the funds you are willing to stake on the previous combination of the day.
