Valorant Masters predictions: Stage 1
The time is now! Here you can check out our favorites to win the first stage of the tournament, our first Valorant Masters Predictions:
Favourites Teams for the North America region
One of the regions with the most interest in participating in this tournament is North America and which has several teams that are extremely promising and could bring the trophy home. One of the most favoured teams we can find is FaZe Clan, Gen.G Esports, and 100 Thieves. The FaZe Clan has some great odds as we saw during our Unikrn Review, besides, their background in other FPS just gives them a major heads-up in head-shots.
Favourites Teams for the European region
Europe is the birthplace of several teams that have gone far in a variety of Esports throughout history. In the case of Valorant we don’t have to make a difference as teams like Ninjas in Pyjamas, Dfuse Team, and FunPlus Phoenix. For Europe, we see that Ninjas in Pyjamas get the best odds at Betway esports, yet FunPlus Phoenix is also a safe bet; this makes us believe that there is a huge chance to see both teams competing in the majors.
Favourites Teams for CIS region
CIS is a region that lies within Europe, but we have to say that it is a bit separate due to the fact that they are independent countries. There are several promising teams on the list, among which we can highlight Gambit Esports, forZe, and Divinity.
Favourites Teams for the Turkey region
Turkey is positioned as another autonomous region that could enter Europe, but this is not the case. However, this is somewhat striking as there are several teams that promise to be a surprise in the tournament. We can mention BBL Esports, Futbolist, and Oxygen Esports on that list.
Favourites Teams for the Korean region
Korea is one of the most promising regions! We know that several world champions have come from this area of the world. It could be that in Valorant we will continue to see such hegemony especially with teams like Damwon Gaming, Vision Strikers, and APEX PEOPLE.
Favourites Teams for the Japan region
Similar to the case of Korea, you can see talent produced on a weekly basis in Japan. And with that, we can also see several renowned teams. Among the teams that promise to be a surprise within this region are First Gaming, Lag Gaming y FAV Gaming.
Favourites Teams for the Southeast Asia region.
The teams in this region are not completely defined. There is a couple of teams in the spotlight but they are not official yet; so we cannot mention favourites, at least not at the moment.
Favourites Teams for the Brazilian region
Brazil still has one spot left to add another team to the list. However, there are several teams that are already in contention, among which we can highlight Sharks Esports, Gamelanders y Vorax. Although we don’t see Brazilian teams among our top Valorant Masters predictions.
