The StarSeries i-League Season 6 Semifinals is here, and as far from what we can tell, things are going to be just as unpredictable as they’ve ever been throughout the entire tournament.
Nothing has been quite like has it seemed. For example, the heavy favourites of the tournament are already out. We’re talking about mousesports, who recently just beat Team Liquid to win ESL One New York 2018. Even North, who beat Astralis just a few weeks ago, got demolished by the North American organization, NRG, 2-0.
In short, the tournament’s been fun, full of surprises and upsets, and we’ve just got exactly what you need to try and make a sense of tomorrow’s matches in the StarSeries i-League Season 6 Semifinals.

StarSeries i-League Season 6 Semifinals Predictions
OpTic vs ENCE eSports
Betting: Total Maps Played Over 2.5 at 2.04 odds. (ArcaneBet)
These two teams faced each other 5 times prior to this match. OpTic has a slight edge with 3 wins. When it comes to their form, both of these teams are on a 5 match winning streak, however, OpTic did have a tougher opponent in the likes of Mousesports and G2.
What I like most about these two teams is how consistent they are on their map picks, so my bet here is a total number of maps, over 2.5.
Overall, this should be an interesting match to watch, as I think both of these teams are a perfect match regarding their skill sets and what can they offer in a match. Furthermore, I have OpTic, who are at 1.91 odds to win according to ArcaneBet, as slight favorites in this match.
NRG vs Vega Squadron
Betting: Vega Squadron to win at 3.48 odds. (ArcaneBet)
To be totally honest, no one expected Vega Squadron to be in the semifinals of this tournament. However, they are a local team and most of the fanbase will be rooting for them in this tournament.
But, the question is, what can they offer against NRG? They are playing a very loose and aggressive style of Counter-Strike:Global Offensive. You really can not say what to expect from them, as they tend to buy 5 SMGs and rush smoke or molotov. On the other hand, NRG is playing a strategic style of the game. They rely on their star player CerQ, main AWPer of the team to carry them in most of the games.
Furthermore, I think CerQ will have a problem with Russians and their style of play. If he is not able to hit his first shot, he is a dead man and that could tilt him and his entire team.
Both of the teams are comfortable on similar maps, as they both enjoy playing Overpass. They played each other only once, and NRG managed to edge Vega Squadron out in the overtime of Inferno.
In my books, I really feel like Vega Squadron has a chance in this one, especially because of their weird style of CS:GO. If they are able to get a momentum going, I even think they might stomp NRG.
My prediction for this match is either Vega Squadron to win, and if you’re feeling lucky, you can place a bet on them going for the sweep at 5.83 odds.
