Valorant bookmakers have Team Vitality priced as 1.44 favourites to defeat GIANTX, who enter the match as 2.62 underdogs. Considering GIANTX have yet to win a game this season, this sounds like a fair offer, however, Vitality's lack of consistency makes it easy to believe this match will end differently than what the odds suggest.

  • Team Vitality are fresh off a huge 0-2 loss against Gentle Mates
  • GIANTX have shown some improvement over the last two weeks
  • Team Vitality should win

Head to Head


GIANTX and Team Vitality have never bet before.

Team Vitality Form


Team Vitality have looked very up and down this season. They ended VCT 2024: EMEA Kickoff in fifth place, with three wins against Gentle Mates (twice9 and KOI, and two losses against Fnatic and Karmine Corp. This record wasn't too inspiring as Vitality only managed to defeat two bottom teams.

In VCT 2024: EMEA Stage 1, Team Vitality have looked better. After losing to Natus Vincere in the first round, Vitality picked up the pace and defeated Team Heretics and FUT Esports, which put them on the map as serious VCT title contenders – until their shocking 0-2 loss to Gentle Mates on Wednesday.

Vitality's defeat to Gentle Mates suggests they can lose to anyone, which isn't anything new. But the question remains – how much weight can we put on that loss?

GIANTX Form


GIANTX are, results-wise, the worst-performing Valorant team in the league. They finished VCT 2024: EMEA Kickoff with two defeats against FUT Esports and Karmine Corp and have, since the start of Stage 1, lost to Karmine Corp, Fnatic, and Team Liquid.

With a 0-5 record, GIANTX are the only team in VCT 2024 EMEA to have yet to win a game; however, they have won at least one map in all but one of the five series played. We must also note that GIANTX have only been facing stronger teams, so their 0-5 record might be a bit misleading.

Last week, GIANTX lost to Team Liquid in a match they should've probably won had they not choked on offence on Ascent. This is no excuse for GIANTX's defeat, but it's fair to say GIANTX have shown some good things recently.

Verdict

There are a few good reasons for why Team Vitality are expected to defeat GIANTX. Unlike GIANTX, they've won games this season and had a short but impressive run in Weeks 2-3 of VCT 2024: EMEA Stage 1 and Vitality field a more stacked roster.

But Vitality also lost to Gentle Mates last round, which raises the question of whether they're to be trusted at 1.44 favourites. Even though Vitality are set to play a 0-5 team, GIANTX have had some good showings lately, and if they managed to take maps from Team Liquid and Fnatic, then there's no question they can do the same against Vitality.
