Valorant bookmakers have Gen.G Esports priced as 1.35 favourites to defeat Team Secret, who are priced as 2.90 outsiders with Stake. This massive gap in price largely reflects the immense success Gen.G have had this season, but this doesn't take away from Team Secret's strength.

  • Gen.G Esports have a combined record of 6-3
  • Team Secret are tied with Gen.G with six wins
  • Both teams are in good form

Head to Head


Team Secret last met with Gen.G Esports in VCT 2024: Pacific Kickoff, when Gen.G won.

Gen.G Esports Form


Gen.G Esports are the prime candidates to win VCT 2024: Pacific Stage 2, even though they won't finish the regular season at the top of the standings. Gen.G have already won the Kickoff event, made the finals of VCT 2024: Masters Madrid and Pacific Stage 1, and added another trophy from VCT 2024: Masters Shanghai 2024.

Even after their trip to China, Gen.G have not slowed down much and have won the first three games of Stage 2, against T1 (2-1), Bleed Esports (2-1), and Global Esports (2-0). Across the first two games, Gen.G looked a bit worse than what you'd expect from the Masters champions.

Gen.G Esports Squad & Team News


No roster changes for Gen.G Esports.

Team Secret Form


Team Secret have a combined record of 6-3, which includes three victories from VCT 2024: Pacific Stage 2 against Bleed Esports (2-1), Global Esports (2-0), and T1 (2-1).

Interestingly, Team Secret have managed the exact same record as Gen.G this stage while facing the same three Valorant teams and the eye test would prove they performed equally as well. Still, Team Secret have not accomplished nearly as much as Gen.G Esports this season, which explains why the latter are expected to win.

Priced at 2.90 with Stake, Team Secret are given mere 34.5% implied probability of winning the series, which is quite a low number. Especially considering how much better Secret have looked at this stage – granted, this will be their first proper match against a strong team.

Team Secret Squad & Team News


No new roster changes for Team Secret.

  • Jessie Cristy "JessieVash" Cuyco
  • Jeremy "Jremy" Cabrera
  • Adrian "invy" Reyes
  • James "2geMONSTAH" Goopio
  • Brheyanne "Wild0reoo" Reyes

Verdict

Gen.G Esports are a far more established team and objectively stronger squad than Team Secret. But Team Secret evidently aren't that weak, so the offered betting odds on this match don't make much sense.

Team Secret at 2.90 seem a bit underrated, even though Gen.G should and likely will win the match. So, while a smaller position on Team Secret should be considered, 1.62 on Secret to win a map is too generous.
