SK Gaming vs Heroic Preview

Both teams may have earnt their place in the Counter-Strike Eleague Premier, however, SK will be expecting to get the job done against the weakest team in group D. Heroic are ranked 18th in Counter Strike and their opponents third and that gulf looks likely to show in this encounter. The Scandinavian roster of Heroic will need to be song if they are to have any hopes against the side favourites to progress from a difficult final group in the Elegaue Premier.

SK Gaming vs Heroic Prediction

One of our Esports betting tips is for SK to get through the game with minimum fuss. However, if you take into consideration the head to head record, then this should be closer than suggested. Twice the teams have met previously and the score currently stands at one a piece. However, SK Gaming’s stronger squad of FalleN, Fer, coldzera, TACO and felps makes the Brazilian firm favourites to give themselves the perfect start.

SK Gaming vs Heroic Betting Tips

Esports betting odds lay heavily in SK’s favour and for a number of very good reasons. Firstly, the Brazilian side have been the more consistent team in Counter Strike hence their far superior ranking of third. Also, the team have a history of performing on the big stage and that level of experience will prove pivotal when it comes to the crunch of who out of the four group D team’s make it to the quarter final. As if that was not enough, SK also boast Marcelo 'coldzera' David in their squad who happens to be the highest rated player out of both teams within the last three months. It appears that there is little doubt that SK will win which is why perennial Esports advocates Unibet are always one of the stronger book makers to use when laying a solid Esports bet thanks to their continued heavy association with the game and plethora of markets they have now added to their betting offering.

Once again, 10Bet prove themselves as having one of the best Esports markets across the industry, especially when it comes to handicaps. To really extract value out of what is promising to be a one-sided tie, then jumping on SK to win with a handicap is a smart way to go. Both sides may come into this clash with three wins each in their last five, but Heroic have lost the last two in a row whereas their opponents were victorious last time out. Confidence, a stronger squad and more experience at the top tournaments gives SK a distinct advantage over their Scandinavian opponents. With only two spaces up for grabs from the group for the quarter finals, Heroic are going to need and almighty ‘heroic’ performance to avoid an early flight back home across the Atlantic. However, expect a Brazilian Samba party once SK have clinched a convincing victory.
