Pick: forZe to win (-169 @ PINNACLE)
Although Endpoint had more success when it comes to H2H clashes, I am concerned with their current form, and that’s why I am backing forZe to win this one. I wouldn’t exclude the maximum of three maps here, but I will not bet on Over/Under, even though the odds are higher than betting on forZe. After winning the Eden Arena Malta Vibes Cup 6, forZe will be looking to continue with fine form, and I am going with them to secure another victory.
