Heroic (0–1) vs. G2 (0–1)
Heroic are coming off a loss to Astralis, but they made the giants sweat a little bit, with both maps going all 30 rounds. It was stavn who stood out for Heroic, posting 48 kills, 10 assists and a plus-10 K/D differential. Meanwhile, G2 fell at the hands of North, a match which they were heavily favored to win. Both of these teams will be desperate to get some points on the board, and the bookmakers have G2 as a -238 favorite in this one. Both huNter- and kennyS had solid showings against North, and they are surprisingly cheap at $7,800 and $7,600, respectively. JaCkz played well against North, but with this pricing, it is likely best to stick to the big guns on G2.
On the side of Heroic, both stavn and niko are decent plays, with cadiaN having some value as one of the lowest-priced players on the slate. niko is actually the player who has stood out the most on Heroic with the limited number of games they've played together, posting 0.71 kills/round with a 1.12 K/D ratio over 12 maps. He had a poor showing in their loss to Astralis, but it is tempting to play him over TeSeS, who may be a big talent but needs to do a lot to give us a good enough return at $8,600.
