Rocket League Summit 1 Odds & Preview: Cloud9 Listed as Favorite

09/08/19 was taken by * Odds

Rocket League currently has a great deal of amazing teams, and Cloud9 is among them. But it is a little confusing to see them listed as the favorites to win, despite the fact that the margin is essentially non-existent. The last event they won has been DreamHack Dallas at the start of June, but since then we’ve found them fall short on a couple of occasions. At the RLCS Season 7 Finalsthey were clean swept 4-0 from Renault Vitality in the semifinals.
Following that, PSG Esports ousted in the quarterfinals of both DreamHack Valencia them. Cloud9 has turned out to be among the greatest North American clubs and they definitely have a chance of winning Rocket League Summit 1. However, with them oddly listed because the favorites, you may readily find better value elsewhere.
One of those teams is none besides fellow North American team, NRG Esports. After nearly four decades of playing for NRG, Fireburner retired After Dreamhack Valencia. He’s a difficult man to substitute but NRG stuffed their vacancy with a enormous star from Europe. They also signed the Planet Earth Champion in Turbopolsa, who had been previously a part of the incredibly dominant Dignitas of 2018.
This will be the very first event that we will see NRG using Turbopolsa about the roster. Alongside GarrettG and JSTN, there is not any shortage of talent and goal scoring ability. In fact, there’s likely no roster as talented as that one. If every one of the stars may get along then it might be a very impressive introduction for the brand new appearance NRG.
At +2000, The Bricks are a case that is very interesting. Going back into RLCS Season 7 Europe, The Bricks frustrated having a 7th place finish that saw them relegated into the Promotion Playoffs. They barely re-qualifed for RLCS Season 8 by defeating Veloce Esports 4-3. This team appeared to be a base team in Europe who had to claw and bite their way back into the RLCS. Dreamhack Valencia rolled around. The Bricks made it all the way into the semifinals by racking up wins on the likes of FC Barcelona, Dignitas and Veloce Esports.
They’d wind up losing to the eventual winners of the championship at PSG Esports, but their conduct revealed a great deal of improvement. In the end of July, The Bricks also beat top four European team Triple Trouble in their approach to winning Rival Esports Summer Open. They’re definitely still huge underdogs, but they might have the ability to take advantage of teams sorting through their roster swaps.
Groups: NRG (+350)
Let us have fun and keep it civil.
