Valorant bookmakers have Evil Geniuses and KRU Esports priced at the same odds, suggesting this will be a close game. This sounds right, even though KRU Esports are 2-0, while Evil Geniuses have yet to taste victory in VCT 2024 Americas Stage 1.

  • Evil Geniuses are on a three-game losing streak
  • KRU Esports have won their last two series
  • A very important match for both sides

Head to Head


KRU Esports and Evil Geniuses have yet to meet this season.

KRU Esports Form


KRU Esports are 2-0 in VCT 2024: Americas Stage 1, with wins against FURIA Esports and MIBR. Beating FURIA and MIBR isn’t too impressive knowing how weak the two teams are, but it gives KRU Esports some momentum.

One thing that’s very obvious about KRU is that they have a very basic approach to their games. They don’t do anything fancy or try something new, which has its positives and negatives. The main negatives being that KRU have a low ceiling and they’re easy to figure out, which could give Evil Geniuses an edge in this matchup.

KRU Esports Squad & Team News


No new changes for KRU Esports.

  • Olavo "heat" Marcelo
  • Nicolás "Klaus" Ferrari
  • Marco "Melser" Machuca
  • Angelo "keznit" Mori
  • Fabian "Shyy" Usnayo

Evil Geniuses Form


Evil Geniuses enter this match on a three-game losing streak, which includes defeats against LOUD (1-2), G2 Esports (0-2), and Cloud9 (0-2). The latter two losses happened across the first two weeks of VCT 2024: Americas Stage 1.

Evidently, Evil Geniuses are not in a good spot, but they’ve shown some good things. They took a map from LOUD in VCT 2024: Americas Kickoff, and they played reasonably well against Cloud9 last round. However, they have one obvious weakness – Evil Geniuses tend to start maps very slow.

Looking at this roster, Evil Geniuses have the potential to be good, but it remains to be seen when they’ll come online – if ever. Still, this match gives them an excellent chance to bounce back.

Evil Geniuses Squad & Team News


No changes for Evil Geniuses.

Verdict

Evil Geniuses are not in a good spot, but they also had to play tougher opponents than KRU Esports, so their 0-2 record doesn’t necessarily mean that Evil Geniuses have shown less. Even if we compare the players on the two rosters, there isn’t much to separate the two teams.

Quality-wise, Evil Geniuses and KRU Esports are very similar, which explains why the bookmakers have EG and KRU priced at the same odds. This should be a very close match; however, while Evil Geniuses have the potential to be better than KRU, they’ve not given us much to feel excited about.
