NRG vs FURIA Esports Predictions

Valorant bookmakers have NRG priced as 1.10 favourites to defeat FURIA Esports, who enter the match as 7.50 underdogs. Considering NRG are one of the most stacked Valorant esports teams in the league, the offer makes sense, but at the current prices, it’s fair to consider backing FURIA.

  • FURIA Esports have yet to win a game this season
  • NRG Esports are fresh off a 2-0 sweep of LOUD
  • FURIA are one of the worst-performing teams in the league

Head to Head


NRG and FURIA Esporta last met during VCT 2024: Americas Kickoff, when NRG won 2-0.

NRG Esports Form


NRG showed no mercy to LOUD in the first week of VCT 2024 Americas Stage 1, beating the jet-lagged Brazilian team 2-0, with 13-10 on Breeze and 13-2 on Sunset. It was a solid display from NRG who needed to start the stage strong following a shaky showing in the VTC 2024 Kickoff. But beating LOUD in their state isn’t very inspiring.

LOUD had visa issues and very little preparation time for the first week of VCT 2024 Americas Stage 1. And still, NRG had to dig deep to defeat LOUD on the first map. 

Still, while NRG’s victory against LOUD doesn’t mean much, they looked solid in the VCT 2024 Kickoff, when they defeated Cloud9 and FURIA and played a close, three-map series against Sentinels.

FURIA Esports Form


FURIA Esports enter the second week of VCT 2024 Americas Stage 1 in concerning form. They’ve yet to win a series this season and, last week, lost to KRU Esports in a three-map series. Losing against KRU alone is concerning, but FURIA also already lost to NRG in February.

Stil, despite their 0-3 record, FURIA have some sone good things. They took 18 rounds from NRG in their first meeting and 20 against MIBR in the second match of VCT 2024 Americas Kickoff. However, despite winning a nice number of maps, FURIA have not won a series yet, so all their small accomplishment don’t matter much.

FURIA Esports Squad & Team News


FURIA Esports have not announced any changes since the signing of Agustin "Nozwerr" Ibarra in March.

  • Leonardo "mwzera" Serrati
  • Ilan "havoc" Eloy
  • Vitor "kon4n" Hugo

Verdict

NRG are priced as favourites, which is fair, but not because they’re that much better but rather because FURIA Esports aren’t that good. Still, while we can safely say that NRG are stronger, the question is how much stronger are they?

At 1.10, NRG are all but guaranteed to come out ahead, but at 2.62, it makes more sense to back FURIA to win a map. Even though their record is terrible, FURIA have produced some good performances and if the stars align, they can surely do some damage against NRG.
