Three high profile teams will be competing in the V4 Future Sports Festival in Budapest. The highest ranked of the three is Mousesports, currently ranked No.8 in the world and the odds on favourite to win the tournament after a fairly strong showing at the Berlin Major earlier in the month. Mousesports claimed wins over North and NaVi at the major and finished in 9th-11th place.
At just -150 to win the tournament, there’s not much value in Mousesports at the moment, so we are going to look elsewhere for value this week.
We love the look of Brazilian outfit MiBR in Budapest. While they only finished 4th, they had a great showing at the BLAST Pro Series in Moscow last week, claiming some massive scalps in NaVi, ENCE, forZe and NIP along the way. They have been through a few different itterations of their all Brazilian line-up over the past few months but seem to have finally settled on a starting five in FalleN, kNgV, fer, LUCAS1 and TACO.
MiBR haven’t had a win in a big tournament in over a year but have looked threatening since dropping Coldzera. We think they are great value at +240 this week.
Pick: MiBR to win (+240 at Bet365)
