Rocket League Summit 1 Odds & Preview: Cloud9 Listed as Favorite

*Odds taken 09/08/19

Rocket League currently has a lot of incredible teams, and Cloud9 is among them. But it is a little perplexing to see them listed as the favorites to win, despite the fact that the margin is basically non-existent. The last event they won was DreamHack Dallas in the beginning of June, but since then we’ve found them fall short on a couple of occasions. At the RLCS Season 7 Finalsthey had been sterile swept 4-0 by Renault Vitality in the semifinals.
After that, PSG Esports ousted in the quarterfinals of both DreamHack Valencia them. Cloud9 has been shown to be among the greatest North American clubs and they definitely have a chance of winning Rocket League Summit 1. However, with them strangely listed as the favorites, so you can easily find better value elsewhere.
One of these groups is none besides fellow North American team, NRG Esports. Following Dreamhack Valencia, Fireburner retired after nearly four decades of playing for NRG. He is a challenging man to replace but NRG filled their vacancy with a enormous celebrity from Europe. They also signed the Planet Earth Champion in Turbopolsa, who had been previously a part of the incredibly dominant Dignitas of 2018.
This is going to be the first event that we will see NRG using Turbopolsa on the roster. Alongside GarrettG and JSTN, there’s no lack of goal scoring ability and talent. Actually, there’s likely no roster as talented as this one. If each of the stars can get along then it may be a really impressive introduction for the new look NRG.
Listed at +2000, The Bricks are a really interesting case. Going back into RLCS Season 7 Europe, The Bricks disappointed having a 7th place finish that saw them relegated to the Promotion Playoffs. They hardly re-qualifed for RLCS Season 8 by defeating Veloce Esports 4-3. This group seemed to be a bottom team in Europe who had to claw and bite their way back in the RLCS. Dreamhack Valencia rolled around. The Bricks created it all of the way into the semifinals by racking up wins over the likes of FC Barcelona, Dignitas and also Veloce Esports.
They’d end up losing to the eventual champions of this tournament in PSG Esports, but their conduct revealed a lot of progress. At the end of July, The Bricks also beat top four European team Triple Trouble on their way to winning the Rival Esports Summer Open. They are definitely still huge underdogs, however they may have the ability to take advantage of teams sorting through their own roster swaps.
Picks: NRG (+350)
Let us have fun and keep it civil.
