Global Esports vs Talon Esports Predictions

Valorant bookmakers have Talon Esports priced as 1.33 favourites to defeat Global Esports, who enter the match as 3.25 underdogs. Since neither team have looked great this season, the offered odds might seem strange, but there’s a good reason why Global Esports aren’t expected to do well.

  • Global Esports are known for choking
  • Talon Esports are 1-1
  • Global Esports have won just one game this season

Global Esports Form


Global Esports are 1-4 this season. They won just one game back in VCT 2024 Pacific Kickoff against Bleed Esports but lost the remaining four series. Three of those four losses came against ZETA DIVISION, while Global Esports also lost to DRX in the last round of VCT 2024 Pacific Stage 1.

A big concern with this team is their tendency to choke games. Even though Global Esports have had some good performances, they consistently fall apart in crucial moments, which is not good. Some of it has to do with the fact that Global Esports are expected to do well, but those expectations aren’t realistic.

Despite being expected to perform, Global Esports don’t field the manpower to compete for top spots in VCT Pacific and with the form they’re in, Global Esports might be one of the weakest teams in the league.

Talon Esports Form


Talon Esports haven’t had the best start to the 2024 Valorant esports season. They won just one of three games in the VCT 2024 Kickoff event – against Team Secret – and have since added one more victory against Bleed Esports (2-1) in the first round of VCT 2024 Pacific Stage 1.

Last round, Talon Esports lost against Gen.G (0-2), who proved just how much better they are. Still, Talon Esports won nine and eight rounds across the two maps played, which is not too shabby.

With a 1-1 record, Talon Esports still have a lot more to prove. But they’re holding on relatively well.

Talon Esports Squad & Team News


Talon Esports have not announced any recent changes.

Verdict

There’s a good reason for why Talon Esports are priced as favourites. Even though they’re not one of the best teams in the league, Talon Esports are much stronger than Global Esports and have looked significantly better over the VCT 2024 Pacific Stage 1.

Global Esports also tend to choke, which explains why they’ve lost winnable games. And even though Global Esports have good enough players to compete for a mid-table finish, it’s difficult to believe in them before they start showing something.
