Valorant bookmakers have KRU Esports priced as 1.72 favourites to defeat 100 Thieves, who enter the match as 2.00 underdogs. Considering KRU Esports have yet to lose a series in VCT 2024: Americas Stage 1, this makes sense, although it’s not like 100 Thieves are struggling.

  • 100 Thieves are on a two-game winning streak
  • KRU Esports are 4-0
  • Both teams need this win

Head to Head


100 Thieves and KRU Esports have yet to meet this season.

KRU Esports Form


KRU Esports have exceeded everyone’s expectations in VCT 2024: Americas Stage 1. They had a terrible start to the 2024 Valorant esports season, finishing VCT 2024: Americas Kickoff in last place with two losses – but they’ve turned things around in Stage 1.

KRU Esports have so far yet to lose a game, with wins against FURIA (2-1), MIBR (2-0), Evil Geniuses (2-0), and LOUD (2-0). But even with four consecutive wins to their name, KRU Esports might not deserve the tag as the best team in the league.

So far, they’ve beaten only four struggling teams, so despite their strong run, KRU Esports still has a lot more to prove. Still, a win on Monday would technically put them at the top of the VCT Americas food chain.

No changes for KRU Esports.

100 Thieves Form


100 Thieves didn’t look great in VCT 2024: Americas Kickoff, but they’ve found more success in Stage 1. After losing their first match of the stage against Sentinels (0-2), 100 Thieves picked up the pace and defeated G2 Esports (2-0) and Cloud9 (2-0) without any issues.

In fact, 100 Thieves dominated in both of those series, not letting their opponents reach double digits across the four maps played. So even though 100 Thieves have won just two games, they also had to play tougher opponents than KRU Esports, so it’s fair to have faith in 100T to win on Monday.

Verdict

KRU Esports really turned things around in VCT 2024: Americas Stage 1 and now look like legitimate title contenders. But they’ve also beaten only weaker teams, so until they prove themselves against a tougher opponent, it’s fair to question KRU Esports’ quality.

On the other hand, they have been playing well, so it’s easy to see why they’re priced as favourites.

100 Thieves are in excellent form, and they’ve already proven their worth against Cloud9 and G2 Esports, who might not be the top teams in the league but are far from the weakest.

Both sides have shown great things over the last few weeks, so it’s hard to call out the winner. At best, this is a coin-flip match, but I’m leaning more towards 100 Thieves, who, unlike KRU Esports, have been properly tested.
