AVEZ vs. Endpoint
Endpoint will be the favorites to take down AVEZ in this quarter-final matchup in BLAST Rising. AVEZ qualified for the quarter-finals with wins against Secret and sAw, and they have bolstered their lineup with the addition of the former Virtus.pro player byali, who is expected to start Monday. This is a solid addition to the team, but they will still be big underdogs against an Endpoint side that only dropped a single match in the group stage.
Both CRUC1AL and Thomas will have solid chances of scoring well in this matchup for Endpoint, but it is also reflected in the pricing, as both are among the highest-priced players on this slate. Surreal is coming off a poor performance against Complexity, but this was a match where Endpoint were completely outclassed, and he will have a great at chance bouncing back with a good performance against a lesser skilled AVEZ side. At just $4,800, I so no reason why you would not roster him if you want to have exposure to Endpoint.
If AVEZ are to cause an upset, they will likely to win their map choice. Markos, who is their main AWPer, stands out as a decent play at $6,800, with Train being a likely map pick for the Poles.
- Endpoint Players to Target: Thomas ($8,800) / CRUC1AL ($9,400), Surreal ($4,800)
- AVEZ Players to Target: Markos ($6,800)
