Team Vitality is currently ranked 2nd globally. Their most recent result in an important tournament was the 2nd place at cs_summit 6. It’s been more than 5 weeks since then and people are longing to see them compete again. The team’s recent form has been excellent: 6 wins in 8 matches. However, a closer look at those victories reveals a lot of easy opponents. Of course, the types of teams defeated by Vitality are not weaker than Heretics. But the odds offered by bookmakers for this match do not reflect in my opinion the strength of Heretics. This is a very strong French team led by some of the best players in the country. And in addition to that, Vitality does have the habit of losing a map even when it wins. So I do expect Heretics to win one map against them. At these odds, the bet is worth taking.
