Valorant bookmakers have G2 Esports priced as 1.66 favourites to defeat Evil Geniuses on Sunday, which doesn't sound right. That is mainly because Evil Geniuses defeated G2 just over one month ago granted G2 Esports had their moments.

  • G2 Esports are 3-2 on the year
  • Evil Geniuses swept G2 Esports in February
  • Evil Geniuses have played just two series this split

Head to Head


G2 and Evil Geniuses met in February, during VCT 2024: Americas Kickoff, when Evil Geniuses won.

  • Evil Geniuses 2-0 G2 Esports – February 24, 2024

G2 Esports Form


G2 Esports enter this match as favourites, and there are some reasons for it. Unlike Evil Geniuses, G2 Esports have played five games this split and won three – against KRU Esports (twice) and the current VCT 2024 Masters Madrid champions, Sentinels.

G2 Esports are actually one of the three teams who have beaten Sentinels this split, which counts for something. Moreover, they played well in the remaining four series of the 2024 VCT season but lost against Evil Geniuses in the second round of VCT 2024: Americas Kickoff, which raises the question of why G2 Esports are expected to do better in the rematch.

G2 Esports replaced Michael "neT" Bernet with Jacob "icy" Lange at the start of the month.

Evil Geniuses Form


Evil Geniuses haven't accomplished much this Valorant season. They've lost many great players after winning VALORANT 2024 Champions, so it was expected that Evil Geniuses won't be as potent this split, but they still underdelivered.

During VCT 2024: Americas Kickoff in February, Evil Geniuses won against G2 Esports but then crashed out in the semifinal with a 1-2 loss against LOUD. This isn't too bad.

Even though their win against G2 Esports was very close (15-13, 13-11), Evil Geniuses played a very competitive series against LOUD, who then nearly defeated Sentinels in the finals. However, we can't properly analyse a team based on just two series, so it's not fair to praise Evil Geniuses too much.

Verdict

Evil Geniuses defeated G2 Esports 2-0 during VCT 2024: Americas Kickoff, but it was a very close game so that victory doesn't count for much. Moreover, Evil Geniuses have played just two games this split and not one official match in over a month.

G2 Esports have also been inactive since late February, but they performed well against Sentinels, so it's not too crazy to see them priced as favourites for this match. Still, at the offered Valorant betting odds, backing Evil Geniuses makes way more sense.

The teams should be priced much closer to even money, as there is no clear reason to favour one over the other. We're playing the price.
