mousesports vs. fnatic Betting Preview
Both teams pleasantly surprised me in the previous round, so I am not going to bet on the winner in this one. I can’t separate them at the moment, and the fact that they are shoulder to shoulder in the rankings says it all. That’s why I am going with an entertaining and lengthy affair that will produce a maximum of three maps.
The Pick: Over 2.5 Maps (-125 @GGBET)
