The best Valorant bookmakers have Team Heretics priced as 1.13 favourites to defeat GIANTX, who are 5.00 underdogs for this series. Heretics deserve respect as the league’s most successful team, but at 1.13, you have to wonder whether they’re a good bet.

Head to Head


GIANTX and Team Heretics have yet to meet this season.

Team Heretics Form


Team Heretics are objectively the most successful European Valorant esports team of the season. They’ve placed second in VCT 2024: EMEA Kickoff and Stage 1 and added a runner-up finish in Masters Shanghai, which is extremely impressive.

Even in Madrid, Team Heretics performed relatively well and finished in seventh-eighth place, but we have to put more weight on their most recent results, which are nothing short of amazing.

In Stage 2, Team Heretics have already beaten Natus Vincere (2-0) and FUT Esports (2-0), proving that they’re not slowed down one bit. And if they managed to sweep NaVi and FUT, then Heretics shouldn’t have issues beating GIANTX either.

GIANTX Form


GIANTX have not found much success this season. They ended Stage 1 in 10th place with just one victory, but they’ve since added two more – against Gentle Mates (21-1) and Natus Vincere (2-0). While those results are a sign of improvement, GIANTX also lost to KOI at the start of the competitive week.

For the next match, GIANTX will play with the newest arrival, Ramses “Famsii” Koivukangas. He’s an inexperienced player at this level of competition, but it’s hard to say whether his arrival will be a boost or a downgrade.

Assuming GIANTX continue playing at the same pace, they might be competitive, even against Heretics, considering they had a very solid showing against Natus Vincere on Thursday.

GIANTX Squad & Team News


GIANTX signed Ramses “Famsii” Koivukangas this past weekend.

  • Kirill "Cloud" Nehozhin

Verdict

Team Heretics look like they can’t be stopped, which is why they carry such a big price tag for this match. So the question really is whether GIANTX are good enough to do some damage.

GIANTX haven’t looked amazing this season, but they didn’t look too bad last week, and with some changes, which the team feels are beneficial, we could see more from them. Take GIANTX to win a map.
