The biggest Valorant LAN event of the year so far is just around the corner. It is taking place in May, in Reykjavik, Iceland. 10 regional powerhouses of the 2021 Valorant Champions Tour will be battling for some precious prize. While odds on teams are yet to be available given that Regional Finals are not complete, you may bet on 2021 Valorant Masters region of the winner.
The first LAN event of the Valorant Champions Tour (VCT), the Masters’ Stage 2 will kick off on 24 May. 10 powerful teams qualifying through different Regional Finals will be contending in Iceland. We will get to know the winner on 30 May when the grand final takes place.
There are 7 Regional Finals from across the world, according to online sportsbook news in Iceland. Some of these Regional Finals especially in North America and Europe have wrapped up. Whereas some others including Brazil are underway. So, the line-up of contenders is shaping up with a few teams yet to secure a seat. If you would like to place a bet on 2021 Valorant Masters, you may consider the NA teams to have a chance of winning.
NA teams come to Iceland with the best odds
The two teams from North America to compete in the VCT Masters Stage 2 have been decided. They are Sentinels and Version1. The two teams earned their spots rightfully. What is more, they are both big favorites to win, as per many online sportsbooks in Iceland. Should either one of the two win, the odds are 2.10 at Bet365 Sportsbook.
Sentinels are the defending champions, as they won the VCT Stage One Masters One event last March. It was probably not possible without the help of TenZ who joined the team just before the event started. On the other hand, Version1 competed in the Challengers Finals as massive underdogs. But, they proved themselves along the way, only to lose in the grand final against Sentinels. So, most likely Version1 will not have better odds than Sentinels coming to Iceland, but they will have a chance to prevail over the rest of the opponents.
An EMEA team has what it takes to pull out an upset
The European contenders (EMEA) have also been decided. They are Team Liquid and Fnatic. It is no surprise at all, as the two teams have been very dominant in Europe. They won comfortably throughout the Challengers phase. In the grand final the two teams showed a great performance and were very close to coming out victorious. But, in the end, Team Liquid deservedly won 3-2. When placing a bet on 2021 Valorant Masters and fancying an upset, then an EMEA team with 2.20 odds should be your choice.
Should you choose a BR team when betting on 2021 Valorant Masters?
Valorant has been one of the biggest rising Esports in 2021 in Brazil. Therefore, we shall see a tough competitor coming to Iceland from Brazil. There are two slots and we will know the ones to secure them in the coming days.
