Cloud9 vs KRU Esports Predictions

The best Valorant bookmakers have Cloud9 priced as 2.10 underdogs to defeat KRU, who are priced as 1.66 favourites for the upcoming series. Considering Cloud9's shaky form heading into this match, this offer doesn't sound too wrong, even though KRU have had their own issues recently.

  • KRU Esports are 0-3 this stage
  • Cloud9 are 2-1
  • The teams have yet to meet this season

Head to Head


KRU Esports and Cloud9 have yet to meet this season.

Cloud9 Form


Cloud9 have not looked great this stage, with just one victory from three games played. They lost to G2 Esports (1-2) in the first week, against Sentinels (0-2) the next, and last week, Cloud9 edged past NRG Esports with a 13-10, 14-12 reverse sweep.

It wasn't the most promising display from Cloud9, who continue to make a strong case for themselves as a middle-of-the-pack team. Based on their most recent showings, they belong a bit lower in that group.

This explains why Cloud9 are 2.10 underdogs with Stake for their upcoming match. That said, KRU Esports' results heading into the final week of VCT 2024: Americas Stage 2 are far from great.

Cloud9 Squad & Team News


Cloud have not announced any roster changes.

  • Francis "OXY" Hoang
  • Anthony "vanity" Malaspina
  • Kaleb "moose" Jayne
  • Dylan "runi" Cade

KRU Esports Form


KRU Esports' combined record is 5-4, meaning they're through to the next stage of the 2024 Valorant season. However, their performances in Stage 2 have left much to be desired.

Over the last three weeks, KRU Esports have lost to Sentinels (0-2), NRG (1-2), and G2 Esports, who bested KRU 2-1 last week. Despite the loss, KRU Esports played reasonably well and should've beaten G2 Esports in two maps.

Even against Sentinels, KRU Esports came close to winning at least one map, so while their results are not great, KRU Esports have been putting up decent showings.

No roster changes for KRU Esports.

Verdict

Cloud9 and KRU Esports have not looked great this stage and will only be making the playoffs thanks to their solid performances in VCT 2024: Americas Stage 1. Still, while neither have managed a positive win rate, both have shown relatively good performances.

KRU looked dangerous in their meeting with G2 Esports, which likely affected the offered price. But it's not like Cloud9 have looked much worse over the three-game stretch, so it's fair to say this match is much closer to a coin flip.
