Sprout vs. forZe
Sprout has won four of their last five matches including a 2-1 win against Heretics on Monday. forZe has won three of their last five matches, but they come into this affair off a narrow 2-1 loss against Team Spirit on April 11. When it comes to the head-to-head meetings between these two rivals, they’ve alternated wins and losses over their last five meetings, with forZe picking up a 2-0 shutout win the last time they met on Nov. 25 of 2019.
With these two rivals alternating wins and losses over the last five meetings and forZe winning the last time they met, I guess it’s time for Sprout to get back in the win column. Not only is Sprout ‘due’ for the win in this one, but they’re definitely playing better right now and that’s what I’m going with the favored Sprout to get it done!
Pick: Sprout 2-1
Japaleno vs. Nordavind
Japaleno has managed to win just two of their last five matches, but they’ve dropped three straight coming into this affair, including a pair of 2-0 shutout losses against Sprout, most recently, on April 10. Nordavind has also dropped three of their last five matches, but they did manage to snap a three-match slide by subduing AGO 2-1 on April 11.
When it comes to the head-to-head meetings between these two, Japaleno has won both all-time meeting via 2-0 shutouts, most recently on March 19.
While these two have both gone 2-3 over their last five matches, I like Nordavind to pick up the big upset in this affair. I know Japaleno has won both all-time meetings, but they’re also riding an ugly losing streak into this one and I suspect Nordavind will be out for revenge in this one!
Pick: Nordavind 2-1
