North vs FURIA Betting Tips & Predictions (ECS Season 7 Finals) 

North will face FURIA in the first semi-final match of ECS Season 7 Finals. The match is on the schedule tomorrow (June 8, 2019). Read our betting prediction for this match and see the latest odds.

Form:

North won 3 out of last 5 matches. Despite the sensational wins on this tournament, team North is still unstable. MIBR had 14-3 against them and North managed to win that match in overtime. Yes, it was indeed spectacular comeback, they did not give up but they should not let that happen in the first place. They were lucky and that is it. The other match against Vitality was also very hard for them. After losing Nuke, they were once again lucky on Inferno and they won that map. However, their performance on Dust2, which is also their best map, was good and that map was the only map they won without any problems. They are unstable and they can’t rely on Dust because it is perma-ban of FURIA.

Team FURIA also won 3 out of 5 last matches, twice against Astralis and once against Vitality. This young Brazilian team did something no one believed they can. Winning 2 times in a row against mighty Astralis is not something anybody can forget. They were the ones who sent Astralis home. Their form is great and team morale is obviously better than ever. I believe FURIA has a great chance of winning this tournament which will also be their first LAN tournament ever.

Map pool:

Another thing where FURIA has an advantage is Map Pool. Let’s go through maps to see why. If our predictions are correct the map ban will be like this:

North ban Vertigo
FURIA ban Dust2
North pick Train
FURIA pick Mirage
North ban Nuke
FURIA ban Inferno
Overpass is decider

North does not play Vertigo and FURIA has a 100% win rate on that map so they will have to ban it. Dust2 is North’s best map and that map is also FURIA’s perma-ban so it is out of the picture. North will pick Train as their second best map and FURIA will pick Mirage because it is North’s worst map. North will have to ban Nuke because it is FURIA’s best map. FURIA will then ban Inferno so they can play on Overpass.

Both teams are equally good on Train with a slight advantage on North’s side.  Mirage is North’s worst map with only 18% win rate on that map while FURIA is on 70% on that map. FURIA also has an advantage on Overpass as it is their most picked map (25 times played in the last 3 months with a 76% win rate).

Betting prediction

Our betting tips is an outright victory on FURIA. Don’t bet on handicap victory because North has a chance of winning Train so this match can easily end up 2-1 for FURIA.
