Sentinels vs Cloud9 Predictions


Sentinels and Cloud9 will clash on Tuesday, July 2, in the second week of VALORANT Champions Tour (VCT) 2024: Americas Stage 2. The two teams have yet to meet this season, but according to the esports betting odds, Sentinels should win with relative ease.

Valorant bookmakers have Sentinels priced as 1.32 favourites to defeat Cloud9, who are 3.10 underdogs for the upcoming series. At this price, Cloud9 are expected to win the game in less than 1/3 of the scenarios, which is quite pessimistic, even though Sentinels have looked good recently.

  • Sentinels are 2-0 this stage
  • Cloud9 lost their only match against G2 Esports
  • Both teams performed well in Stage 1

Head to Head


Cloud9 have yet to meet with Sentinels.

Sentinels Form


Sentinels weren't that good in VCT 2024: Americas Stage 1. They ended the group stage with a 3-3 record and thus missed the playoffs.

But Sentinels had an excellent start to the season and proved that they can do well. That was again proven across the first two rounds of the second stage when Sentinels defeated NRG (2-0) and KRU Esports (2-0) – granted, those weren't exactly top teams so far this season.

Sentinels are in good form, which is a plus, but should they really be priced as 1.32 favourites with Stake is up to debate.

Sentinels Squad & Team News


No roster changes for Sentinels.

  • Zachary "zekken" Patrone
  • Gustavo "Sacy" Rossi
  • Tyson "TenZ" Ngo
  • Amine "johnqt" Ouarid
  • Jordan "Zellsis" Montemurro

Cloud9 Form


Cloud9 are a Valorant esports team that is very tough to doubt. They field excellent players and have already shown good things in VCT 2024: Americas Stage 1 when they finished Group Alpha with a 5-1 record but lost against G2 Esports in the Knockout Round.

Cloud9 again lost to G2 Esports in the first week of the second stage, but that perhaps doesn't mean that Cloud9 are weak but rather that they don't do well against G2 Esports. Considering they've not lost to any other team – besides 100 Thieves – since the start of Stage 1, that's a believable theory.

But then again, Cloud9 still have to prove that they're the real deal, and this match gives them the opportunity to do so.

Cloud9 Squad & Team News


Cloud9 have not announced any changes.

  • Erick "Xeppaa" Bach
  • Francis "OXY" Hoang
  • Anthony "vanity" Malaspina
  • Kaleb "moose" Jayne
  • Dylan "runi" Cade

Verdict

Sentinels are in excellent form, but beating NRG and KRU Esports doesn't make them the best team in the league. And yet they're priced like one for this match.

A 1.32 price tag would make sense if this was a series between the bottom squad and serious title contenders, and while Sentinels are the latter, Cloud9 are far from one of the weakest teams in the league. Cloud9 to upset Sentinels at this price is an excellent bet.
