Team Secret vs DRX Predictions

Valorant bookmakers have DRX priced as 1.40 favourites to defeat Team Secret on Saturday, which makes sense. Even though DRX haven't won the VCT 2024 Pacific Kickoff, they did well in the tournament and are widely regarded as one of the strongest teams in the region.

  • DRX are 2-1 on the season
  • Team Secret placed fifth in the VCT 2024 Pacific Kickoff
  • Team Secret have played five, DRX just three games this season

Head to Head


Team Secret and DRX have yet to meet this season.

Team Secret Form


Team Secret are priced as underdogs for their upcoming match against Team Secret, which might sound fair, considering they didn't make it through VCT 2024: Pacific Kickoff. However, Team Secret played well and people seem to not be aware of it.

Secret started VCT 2024: Pacific Kickoff with a 0-2 loss against Talon Esports but bounced back with two 2-0 sweeps of DetonatioN FocusMe and Talon Esports before narrowly losing to Gen.G (1-2) and beating ZETA DIVISION.

Despite not reaching the Masters, Team Secret still won three of five games, and they were 5-0 in the pre-season Asia Pacific Predator League 2024 event. While Team Secret aren't considered one of the top Valorant teams in the region they've been very solid.

DRX Form


DRX, like Team Secret, didn't make it through VCT 2024: Pacific Kickoff and into the VCT 2024 Masters Madrid. But they came close.

During the Kickoff tournament, DRX defeated DetonatioN FocusMe and Talon Esports but lost against Gen.G in the first round of the knockout stage. But while DRX came just one series away from qualifying for the Madrid Masters, they've played the same opponents as Team Secret and did worse.

Like Team Secret, DRX swept DFM and Talon but lost to Gen.G. But unlike Team Secret, DRX didn't win a map against Gen.G.

Drawing conclusions based only on three results isn't an efficient method to figure out where the teams stand. But based on their record, it's hard to justify saying DRX are stronger.

Verdict

Neither team looked great so far this season. But DRX have a higher ceiling, which explains why they're expected to win on Saturday. That, however, doesn't necessarily mean much.

Team Secret have looked solid in the VCT 2024 Pacific Kickoff and they performed well in the pre-season tournaments. So even though we can't say that Team Secret are very good, they're not that much worse than DRX. This looks like a coin-flip match.
