Valorant betting sites have priced G2 Esports as 1.52 favourites and NRG as 2.35 underdogs. As VCT 2023: Americas Stage 1 runners-up, G2 Esports have accomplished more than NRG, but does that justify their price tag?

  • G2 Esports made it very far in VCT 2024: Masters Shanghai
  • NRG Esports placed ninth-10th at VCT 2024: Americas Stage 1
  • G2 Esports have looked much better this season 

Head to Head


NRG and G2 Esports have yet to meet this season.

G2 Esports Form


G2 Esports have looked great this Valorant esports season. They finished VCT 2024: Americas Stage 1 in second place and claimed a bronze medal from VCT 2024: Masters Shanghai – which is far more than what NRG have accomplished.

Their only four defeats since the end of Stage 1 group stage came against 100 Thieves (1-2, 0-3), Gen.G (0-2), and Team Heretics (0-3), which is again very impressive and it seems like the trip to China hasn't slowed down G2 one bit.

They kicked off the second stage with a 2-1 victory against Cloud, which G2 Esports deserved, but one game alone isn't enough to draw any conclusions.

NRG Form


NRG had a solid start to the 2024 Valorant esports season. They placed third-fourth at VCT 2024: Americas Kickoff but failed to emulate that success in Stage 1, where they ended in ninth-10th place.

This is a bit misleading, as NRG ended Stage 1 with a 3-3 record, which technically sat them in a three-way tie with G2 Esports and Sentinels in Group Alpha, but they lost out on round differential. So even though NRG's past placements aren't too exciting, they've not looked terrible.

More important for this match is that NRG Esports performed well in their 2-0 sweep of LOUD in the opening week, and they have plenty of film on G2 Esports to look over and find the right strategy. And that alone could be a huge difference maker.

Verdict

G2 Esports have unquestionably accomplished more than NRG this season, but does that mean they should be priced as favourites? It really only comes down to how good you think NRG are, or better said, how good NRG can be.

They performed relatively well in Stage 1 and showed some potential. Now, they also have a lot of film on G2 Esports, which should give them a bit of an edge in creating the right strategy to use on Monday. And considering NRG undeniably have good enough players to compete for top spots, that alone should be enough to result in a competitive series.
