Six Sweden Major 2021 – DAMWON is hot, NiP and Faze on a win-streak
The Six Sweden Major 2021 has been exhilarating as fans saw a surge in new rivals and the downfall of many powerhouses. Most notably, Team Empire, runner-up of Six Mexico Major 2021, was shockingly eliminated in the groups.
Other notable upsets include Team Vitality, DarkZero and Oxygen Esports. These teams were hailed as top-tier candidates, did not secure their expected playoff slots. Nevertheless, the fall of legends gives rise to young blood as we head into Six Sweden Major 2021 Playoffs on November 12.
Six Sweden Major 2021 Playoffs Predictions
We wouldn’t be EsportsDotNet if we do not give our set of predictions for the Playoffs bracket and matches. Anyone seeeking for some Rainbow Six Betting and odds, should keep our predictions in mind for maximum gains. We have four matches in potential accumulator, for roughly ~x6.0 return on investment.
DAMWON Gaming vs SANDBOX Gaming
DAMWON Gaming is at its peak form, so they say. The Korean team is certainly an oddball in the Six Siege Esports scene, but they have proven to be an exceptional team. They defeated all their group opponents, which included Spacestation Gaming and Team Empire. Mind you, these are no amateur teams, and to sweep the floor against even Spacestation is an achievement. Nevertheless, the Korean pride remains humble and collective in their journey into Six Sweden Major, considering their position as the younger teams in the competition.
Coincidently, DAMWON will be facing their home region’s rival, SANDBOX Gaming. While SANDBOX doesn’t have many official matches in their book, they did well enough in group B to defeat Vitality and DarkZero Esports, bolstering the APAC region’s pride.
Oddly enough, the odds are against DAMWON at x2.11 against SANDBOX at x1.68 returns. On the bright side, that’s a guaranteed Korean team in the semis!
My prediction is a DWG win here.
FaZe Clan vs BDS Esport
Meanwhile, FaZe and BDS are set for an interesting series since both teams are on equal footing. FaZe Clan has previously defeated the Six Mexico Major champion, oNe Esports in Copa Elite Six – Season 2021. Whereas BDS were runner-ups in the Six Mexico Major. The odds are in favor of BDS to win at x1.55 versus FaZe at x2.35.
BDS was playing on equal footing against the Six Invitational 2021 champions, Ninjas in Pyjamas, in the groups. FaZe may have secured top seeds, but the competition in group A is relatively mediocre compared to the championship-winning opponents other groups had to fight. Furthermore, BDS features a more seasoned roster over FaZe, who underwent a roster shuffle during the first quarter of 2021.
Head2head we have to give this one to BDS, considering they are the best team EU has to offer.
Team oNe vs Rogue
Rogue is in a sticky situation, as they are up against the Six Mexico Major champs. Furthermore, their invites to Six Invitation 2022 are also on the line. On the contrary, Rogue is just a stepping stone for Team oNe to win another major title on their belt.
On paper, this is the most one-sided playoffs duel at the Six Sweden Major, with oNe rocking x1.28 odds versus Rogue at a whopping x3.46 odds. However, oNe is still vulnerable to losses, well the last time they did lose was against Team Vitality in groups. So, perhaps with sufficient practice and studying of Vitality’s playstyle and tactics, they might just upset the powerhouse.
But hey, that’s just speculation and a very long shot in the court. We have to go with oNe here.
Ninjas in Pyjamas vs Spacestation Gaming
Deemed the greatest pro league match in Six Siege history, NiP vs SSG will certainly rake up peak viewership during their match on November 12. For one, we won’t know how this clash of champions will go, considering both have their share of outstanding achievements. Sure, SSG did place second seed in their group (losing to DAMWON), but up against an old nemesis? Expect SSG to be well-equipped to defend their major champion’s title.
The odds are x1.44 on NiP versus x2.66 on SSG, which doesn’t do SSG justice for what they are capable of. Nonetheless, fans are just thrilled to relive the NiP vs SSG finals of Six Invitational 2020 at the Six Sweden Major 2021!
It’s important to note that these are elimination matches, and losers go home securing fifth-eight places. Winners proceed to the semifinals, and eventually the grand finals, where champions earn $200,000 and 375 Six Invitational points.
