To everybody’s surprise, the StarSeries i-League Season 6 Finals will pit two of some of the least likely teams anyone would’ve thought would make it this far, as ENCE eSports takes on Vega Squadron with $125,000 on the line.
At 1.49 odds to win (bet $100 to win $149) the StarSeries i-League Season 6 Finals, at sportsbooks monitored by ArcaneBet, ENCE eSports are clearly more favoured compared to their opponents, Vega Squadron, who are the 2.58 odds underdogs. (Bet $100 to win $258)
The lines are definitely good. However, if they are too small for you, you can consider getting Correct Score 3-1 in favour of ENCE eSports at 3.5o odds to win the best-of-five and Vega Squadron +1.5 at 1.81 odds. The over/under for the total maps played in the series is at 3.5 and 4.5 at, 3.02 odds/1.36 odds and 1.36 odds/3.02 odds, respectively.
ENCE eSports are coming off one of the most unprecedented runs in recent memory. Ranked #18 at HLTV’s latest CS:GO power rankings, the all-Finnish CS:GO team has yet to win a notable international CS:GO LAN throughout the lifetime of its latest roster. In fact, the organization have yet to win a single notable international LAN, ever.
Overall, ENCE eSports are 7-1 in matches heading into the StarSeries i-League Season 6 finals. More importantly, two of their wins came against tournament favourites BIG and mousesports.
On the other hand, their opponents, Vega Squadron, secured their spot in the finals the hard way. The CIS organization first went 3-2 during the Group Stage before taking out Fragsters and pulling off an upset against NRG Esports in the semifinals.
StarSeries i-League Season 6 Finals Prediction
ENCE eSports’ performance is predicated more or less on team effort combined with rather excellent individual players. They have gone 7-1 so far, with mostly lopsided wins, and they owe it all to three key players.
Team captain, Aleksi ‘allu‘ Jalli, tops the entire squad with a 1.25 rating. He is followed by Jere ‘sergej‘ Salo with 1.24. Then there’s Jani ‘Aerial‘ Jussila with a 1.22 rating so far throughout the tournament.
allu mostly has his performance against OpTic Gaming to thank for his huge surge in rating. In that particular series, he helped ENCE eSports eliminate OpTic Gaming by posting a 51-17 K/D ratio, 81.6% Kill Assist Percentage, and a 1.64 rating.
If allu keeps up his performance, he’ll likely secure the tournament MVP award tomorrow following the StarSeries i-League Season 6 finals.
Of course, Vega Squadron will definitely have a say about that. They have an unpredictable, chaotic, and aggressive play style that’s immensely entertaining to watch.
While we expect Vega Squadron to fall and lose in front of their home crowd, we should see them put up a good fight against ENCE eSports.
