Valorant bookmakers have LOUD priced as 1.22 favourites and FURIA Esports as 3.80 underdogs. While LOUD looked good early into the season, the teams' most recent results suggest this price gap is far too big.

  • LOUD placed fourth at VCT 2024: Masters Madrid
  • Both teams are 1-1 at this stage
  • FURIA upset 100 Thieves in the first week

Head to Head


FURIA Esports have yet to meet with LOUD this season.

LOUD Form


LOUD looked great early into the 2024 Valorant esports season. They finished VCT 2024: Americas Kickoff in second place and then ended the Masters Madrid tournament in fourth.

Their run through Stage 1 wasn't as great, as LOUD only managed a top-six finish. But even though LOUD ended Group Omega in third place, they only managed two wins - against Sentinels and G2 Esports.

Their start to Stage 2 was also decent but not great, with a 1-2 loss against Evil Geniuses and a close 2-1 victory against MIBR. Those are not results you'd expect from top contenders, and yet LOUD are priced as such for this match with Stake.

In June, LOUD signed Bryan "pANcada" Luna.

FURIA Esports Form


FURIA Esports were one of the worst Valorant esports teams across VCT 2024: Americas Kickoff and Stage 1, which they finished in 10th-11th and ninth-10th-place. In Stage 1, FURIA were the only team, besides MIBR, to not win a single game, which is highly concerning and a solid indication of where FURIA belong(ed).

The abysmal start to the year led to some roster changes and the addition of Alexandre "xand" Zizi who helped FURIA find more traction. Across the two series played in Stage 2, FURIA have managed one win against 100 Thieves (2-0) and a rough 0-2 loss to Evil Geniuses.

This is a small sample size of games and not enough to make conclusions, but FURIA have shown some improvement.

No changes for FURIA since the signing of Alexandre "xand" Zizi.

Verdict

LOUD have accomplished a lot more than FURIA Esports this season and are unquestionably a team with higher potential. FURIA, on the other side, secured a massive win against 100 Thieves in the first week but lost to Evil Geniuses badly, managing only nine rounds across the two maps played.

Now the question is whether FURIA's loss to Evil Geniuses is a good enough reason to fade them. Realistically, FURIA have only produced one good game this season – against 100 Thieves – but at the same time, we've not seen much from LOUD this stage either.

FURIA might be able to win, mainly because LOUD are not in great form. But at the very least, FURIA should be good for one map.
