Valorant bookmakers have FUT Esports priced as 1.20 favourites to defeat GIANTX, who enter the match as 4.00 underdogs. As one of the best teams in the region, FUT Esports deserve respect; however, GIANTX have looked better with the new singing and might be able to cook up and upset.

  • FUT Esports are guaranteed a top-two finish
  • GIANTX have a combined record of 3-6
  • FUT Esports are 1-0 up in the head-to-head

Head to Head


FUT Esports last met with GIANTX during VCT 2024: EMEA Kickoff, when FUT Esports won.

  • FUT Esports 2-1 GIANTX – February 22, 2024

FUT Esports Form


FUT Esports are already through to the upper bracket semifinals, having won seven of nine series played across the two VCT 2024: EMEA stages. Regardless of how this match ends, FUT will not improve or worsen their final placement, so while they might want to win not to lose momentum, FUT Esports don't necessarily need to

At this stage, FUT Esports have won three of four series played. This includes a close victory against KOI (2-1) at the start of Week 1, and two 2-0 sweeps of Natus Vincere and Gentle Mates. Their only loss happened in the second week when FUT Esports were unable to stop Team Heretics (0-2).

FUT Esports are one of the top-four Valorant esports teams in the region and they have results – both domestic and international – to back it up. However, it's fair to question whether they're a bit too pricey at 1.20 with Stake.

FUT Esports Squad & Team News


No roster changes for FUT Esports.

GIANTX Form


GIANTX are 3-6 ahead of this match, which sits them in the bottom of the VCT 2024: EMEA league table. A win on Tuesday, would put them at four wins, but even then, GIANTX might not qualify for the playoffs – but they won't know their fate until later this week.

GIANTX have not accomplished much throughout the 2024 Valorant esports season and, in a bid to find more success, decided to sign Ramses "Famsii" Koivukangas before last week's round. The move proved to be a beneficial one, as GIANTX posted a good performance against Team Heretics (1-2), suggesting they're ready to take on another big dog.

Whether that game was just a fluke or a sign of great things to come is up for debate. But there's no denying that GIANTX have not looked that bad over the last two weeks, having also swept Natus Vincere (2-0).

GIANTX Squad & Team News


GIANTX have recently signed Ramses "Famsii" Koivukangas from UCAM Esports Club.

  • Kirill "Cloud" Nehozhin
  • Adolfo "Fit1nho" Gallego
  • Aaro "hoody" Peltokangas
  • Semyon "purp0" Borchev
  • Ramses "Famsii" Koivukangas

Verdict

FUT Esports are a more successful team of the two and they seem to be in good form ahead of this match. But FUT Esports aren't as desperate for this win as GIANTX, which could slightly tip the scale in favour of the outsiders.

GIANTX have also looked better with the latest signing, and even though we have a very small sample size of games to analyse, GIANTX arguably aren't as bad as the betting odds might suggest.

GIANTX to win a map at 1.92 is an excellent offer, especially considering FUT Esports tend to drop games against weaker opponents.
