Polar Ace vs. Mythic
Monday's CS:GO slate opens in Mythic Invitational League, with Polar Ace and Mythic facing off in the opening match and the winner moving on to face Chaos in Round 2. The first match also looks to be far and away the most one-sided of the slate, as Mythic look to take a comfortable victory against a poor Polar Ace side. Keiti and zNf will look to provide the firepower for Mythic, who come into the match in good form despite their last two one-sided defeats to Chaos. The veto is likely to end up on Train, Overpass and Inferno, though Polar Ace could pull out a very different veto to try and keep Mythic off-balance. Overall, Mythic are the favorites and look likely to romp through this match, offering excellent value across the board. If Polar Ace want to pull off the upset, they will look towards Magowi, who has shown the potential to keep up with the firepower that Mythic bring to the table.
Prediction: 2-0 Mythic
- PA Players to Target: Magowi ($11,700 Captain, $7,800 Flex)
- MYTH Players to Target: zNf ($13,800 Captain, $9,200 Flex), Keiti ($10,800 Captain, $7,200 Flex)
Oceanus vs. New England Whalers
The second match is the closer of the two, with the winner taking on Triumph in the second round, a tall task for any team in North America. New England Whalers
