NRG vs 100 Thieves Predictions


NRG and 100 Thieves will clash on Saturday, May 4, in the final week of VALORANT Champions Tour 2024: Americas League - Stage 1. It'll mark their first meeting of the season, and according to esports betting odds, NRG should win.

Valorant bookmakers have NRG priced as 1.44 favourites to defeat 100 Thieves, who enter the match as 2.62 underdogs. NRG are considered one of the region's most stacked teams, so it's not shocking to see the offered price, but at 2.62, 100 Thieves might be a bit underrated.

Head to Head


100 Thieves and NRG have yet to meet this season.

NRG Form


NRG enter the final week of VCT 2024: Americas Stage 1 with a 3-2 record. They've so far beaten LOUD (2-0), FURIA (2-0), and MIBR (2-0), but lost against Leviatan (0-2) and Evil Geniuses (2-1).

NRG lost to EG last week in a fairly close game, which ended in 6-13, 16-14, and 11-13. However, even though NRG nearly won, that doesn't change the fact that NRG should've beaten Evil Geniuses and yet they fell flat. In fact, that game should've ended in a 2-0 sweep for EG.

NRG's recent loss is their only bad showing of the season, so I wouldn't criticise them too much for it. However, it's not like NRG have shown much in the previous weeks, seeing how they've only beaten two bad teams and lost to Leviatan with 4-13 on both maps.

NRG Squad & Team News


No changes for NRG.

100 Thieves Form


100 Thieves are in good form. They're 2-2, which is enough to finish top three in Group Omega. They've so far beaten G2 Esports (2-0) and Cloud9 (2-0) but lost against Sentinels (0-2) and KRU Esports (1-2).

Losing against Sentinels now sounds bad, but 100T lost to them in the first week when Sentinels were still playing well. Their other loss happened against KRU Esports, who are in excellent form, so even that loss isn't too worrying.

Verdict

100 Thieves have been experimenting with some unique compositions, which didn't work well at times, and it adds a bit of uncertainty, especially for this match, since 100 Thieves don't need to win. But the players have been in great form and we've seen many great things from this team so far this split.

NRG aren't a bad team, and they've done well against weaker opponents. But they also got crushed by Leviatan, and they didn't impress against Evil Geniuses last week. There's a bit of a question mark of how 100T will approach this match, and whether they'll look to try something new, but at the offered price, I would rather be on their side than NRGs.
