Valorant betting sites have Gen.G priced as 1.25 favourites to defeat FunPlus Phoenix, who enter the match as 3.75 underdogs. Even though both teams won their round one series, Gen.G entered the tournament as one of the leading favourites, which explains why they're expected to do well on Saturday.

  • Gen.G are one of the most successful teams of the 2024 Valorant esports season
  • FunPlus Phoenix performed well against FUT Esports
  • Gen.G should win without any issues

Head to Head


Gen.G and FunPlus Phoenix have yet to meet this season.

FunPlus Phoenix Form


FunPlus Phoenix were billed as one of the weakest teams attending VCT 2024: Masters Shanghai, but this comes with an asterisk. Even though FPX are China's second seed, they did well so far this season, placing second in VCT 2024: China Kickoff and Stage 1, and they even placed top eight at VCT 2024: Masters Madrid.

So even though FunPlus Phoenix are weaker than their domestic rivals, EDward Gaming, they caused some noise in the recent international tournament, proving they can compete with the top teams.

Still, for this match, we should tame our expectations a bit. While FPX can be competitive against the world's best Valorant sides, they're not at the level of the elite few. And Gen.G unquestionably belong in that category.

Gen.G Form


Gen.G are one of the best-performing Valorant esports teams of the 2024 season. They started the year by winning VCT 2024: Pacific Kickoff, then added a silver medal from Masters Madrid, and ended VCT 2024: Pacific Stage 1 in second place, with a close 2-3 loss to Paper Rex.

Given their past success, it's not surprising that Gen.G entered VCT 2024: Masters Shanghai as one of the leading favourites to win it all. But they had to dig deep to make it past Leviatan in the first round, whom they beat with a reverse sweep, 13-5 on Lotus and 13-7 on Breeze.

One shaky showing in the first round doesn't prove much, but it indicates that Gen.G can bleed.

Verdict

Valorant bookmakers have Gen.G priced as heavy favourites for this match, which makes plenty of sense. They're one of the leading candidates to win VCT 2024: Masters Shanghai and are in excellent form. On the other hand, FunPlus Phoenix are from a weaker region and is not even the best team from China.

Still, at 3.75, FunPlus Phoenix seem a bit underrated. They performed well at VCT 2024: Masters Madrid, and their victory over FUT Esports is a good indication that FunPlus Phoenix came to play. This is still Gen.G's game, but FunPlus Phoenix should be able to steal one map.
