SKADE vs. ALTERNATE aTTaX Betting Preview

SKADE is in excellent form and I understand why the bookmakers are giving them a favorite role in this one. However, losing to ALTERNATE aTTaX wouldn’t be surprising at all, and I expect to see a close encounter that could go either way, even though I am leaning toward the Bulgarian side. Still, I am going to avoid betting on the winner here, and I am going with Over 2.5 maps instead. The previous Best of 3 H2H duel produced a maximum of three maps.
