100 Thieves and Gen.G are set to clash on Sunday, June 2, in the upper bracket semifinal of VALORANT Champions Tour (VCT) 2024: Masters Shanghai. It'll mark their first meeting of the season and according to the esports betting odds, 100 Thieves should win.

Valorant bookmakers have Gen.G priced as 2.10 underdogs to defeat 100 Thieves, who enter the match as 1.65 favourites. Both teams have looked decent so far in this tournament, although 100 Thieves have managed a more impressive victory in the opening round of the playoffs.

  • 100 Thieves are fresh off a dominant victory against FUT Esports
  • Gen.G edged past Fnatic in the first round of the playoffs
  • The two sides have yet to clash this season

Head to Head


This will mark the first meeting between 100 Thieves and Gen.G of the 2024 Valorant esports season.

100 Thieves Form


100 Thieves enter the upper bracket semifinal of VCT 2024: Masters Shanghai in excellent form. They won VCT 2024: Americas Stage 1 by finishing the group stage in second place and beating everyone in their path in the playoffs – including LOUD, Leviatan, and G2 Esports, establishing themselves as the clear best Valorant esports team from Americas.

In Shanghai, 100 Thieves have so far played just one game – against FUT Esports – in the opening round of the playoffs. And they won convincingly, with 13-2 and 13-5. 

That win became that more impressive after FUT Esports defeated another strong title contender in Fnatic, which should suggest that 100 Thieves are significantly stronger than the Europe's no.1 seed. That's not entirely true.

No new changes for 100 Thieves.

Gen.G Form


Gen.G entered VCT 2024: Masters Shanghai as one of the leading title contenders, and they've yet to lose that status. Gen.G started the season by winning VCT 2024: Pacific Kickoff, and they've since added two runner-up finishes at VCT 2024: Masters Madrid and Pacific Stage 1.

Over the course of the season, Gen.G have lost just seven series – most against local competition – which is a strong testament to this team's quality. Even in Shanghai, Gen.G didn't fold yet, having beaten Leviatan, Fnatic, and FunPlus Phoenix – all 2-1.

Those are all solid results; however, you'd expect Gen.G to show a bit more in the group stage. Nevertheless, it's hard to find any flaws with this team and any reasons to doubt their chances of defeating 100 Thieves.

Gen.G Squad & Team News


No changes for Gen.G.

  • Kim "Karon" Won-tae

Verdict

100 Thieves have looked incredible since the start of Stage 1, but there aren't many reasons to believe they're significantly better than Gen.G. Even though Gen.G could've shown more on their road to the upper bracket semifinals, they have shown many great things and proven they're a top-tier team.

Map pool-wise, the teams are very close, and individually, you could give 100 Thieves a slight advantage. But not enough to say that either team will have an easy time on Sunday.

I expect a 2-1 victory for 100 Thieves or a very competitive series where 100 Thieves edge out a win.
