This is Sentinels Last Chance to Make it Into the Playoffs

Right now, the Sentinels are the only team sitting on a winless record (0-3), and they also have the worst round differential of the entire group stage (-27). It’s so strange to see such an iconic team be in such a bad position, especially if we consider that they haven’t made any big roster changes, although that might just be the reason why they haven’t been able to find success in quite a while now and valorant betting experts agree with this. But this is their last chance to make amends as scoring a win in their next two games would greatly increase their chances of making it into the playoffs.

FaZe find themselves in a similar spot, although it’s obviously much better for them as they at least scored 1 against the valorant odds in their series versus Cloud9. The thing is that if they lose their next two matches and Sentinels manage to win both, FaZe would no longer have a chance to qualify for the playoffs, which might put some extra pressure on them. Unlike Sentinels, at least FaZe comes into this match with a recent 2-0 victory which might be enough of a confidence boost for them to win the series, but considering how important this match is for both teams, it might end up not mattering in the end.

FaZe Still Has to Play Against Evil Geniuses

That’s what should be the biggest concern for FaZe right now. Maybe having to face up versus Sentinels isn’t a challenge big enough to worry them, but Evil Geniuses is a whole different beast. Right now, it’s safe to say that OpTic and Evil Geniuses are the strongest teams in Group B, and they basically have a spot in the playoffs secured, while the rest of the competition is battling it out for the other 2 spots left. I think that Week 4 of the group stage will be the most important of all because it’s going to determine just how important each of the matches occurring in Week 5 will be.

Quan “dicey” Tran will be the most important player in their upcoming match against Sentinels because he’s shown to be the one most capable of getting the largest amount of kills in their games. Against Cloud9, Quan managed to get a +16 kill differential, although he didn’t score the highest ADR of the series. His Chamber might as well be one of the most consistent ones in group B, and if he manages to put up a performance similar to the one in his game against C9, then FaZe might have enough to score a win versus the Sentinels.

The Sentinels haven’t missed a single North American Challengers, but after the VCT 2021 Stage 3, they haven’t been finding any success during their runs. They failed to qualify for this iteration for the first time in the 1st Open Qualifier after they were eliminated by Luminosity, fortunately for them, they managed to have a good run in the 2nd Open Qualifier. Now Sentinels find themselves in a life-or-death situation because losing this game means that their chances of making it into the playoffs would convert to none, making this their 4th tournament in a row where they have a disappointing finish.

Last week, in their last encounter against OpTic, TenZ was unable to participate and their head coach Rawkus replaced him for the series. And just like every valorant betting expert was expecting, OpTic completely rolled over them and didn’t give them a single chance to bounce back during the games. At least during the 2nd map of the encounter, Michael “dapr” Gulino did put up a good performance with his Viper pick, but ultimately wasn’t enough and OpTic closed out the series with a 2-0 score.

The silver lining for Sentinels is that they already played against the strongest teams in group B and winning both of their upcoming games would be the finish they’ve been looking for a long time now.

Sentinels vs FaZe Clan Predictions

If we look at the entirety of the group stage standings, this match will be the most important one by far just because of Sentinel’s life-or-death situation. They are looking to come back from a 3-match losing streak, and if they manage to do so, they might be on track to pull off an amazing miracle run, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves yet.

FaZe won’t be giving them a free pass because they are also on the brink of elimination if they lose both of their upcoming matches. In the end, I think that both teams will play to the fullest potential and that’s why I think that there definitely is a much stronger team in this match.

In the end, I think that Sentinels will be able to score the victory just because of the importance of this match. There is so much experience accumulated in their roster that they know how to put up a good performance in the most important moments of the competition. This will be the beginning of Sentinels’ miracle run and I don’t think that FaZe will be able to stop them.
