SKADE vs. Anonymo Betting Preview
I am not going to write an extended analysis about this pick – I am backing SKADE to get a win. Considering how they are playing of late, I wouldn’t be surprised if they go all the way and win the tournament. Despite being in the company of better-ranked teams here in the playoffs, the Bulgarians have the quality and are in a red-hot form, so I don’t think they will have problems with Anonymo.
The Pick: SKADE to win (-161 @PINNACLE)
