Odds as of November 5 at Bovada
Shoot To Kill, Susquehanna Soniqs Battle for NA Supremacy
Shoot To Kill and Susquehanna Soniqs are no doubt the two biggest names in NA PUBG. Both have been dominant in the region in 2020, with STK taking home the first Continental Series season, while Susquehanna battled back to win season 2.
This event seems to be the ultimate showdown between the two, as both teams are looking to cement their place as the best in North America and both have come in with guns blazing so far. The initial stage of the tournament saw both dominate, with Shoot To Kill coming out first by just 12 points.
Both have dominated the competition and there has only been the tiniest gap between the two so far. It seems we’re set for another battle between the two NA PUBG titans, setting up a very exciting final stage.
Is it finally Oath Gaming’s Time to Shine?
While STK and Susquehanna have been the two standout teams in North America, there has always been one nipping at their heels: Oath Gaming.
The Oath squad finished in fourth in Continental Series season 1, and even nabbed second ahead of Shoot To Kill in season 2. The team seems to be growing with time and managing to challenge the best.
So far, they’ve impressed at the event and came in third in the initial stage. However, the question remains: Can they raise their level even more and finally take home the trophy?
Is Zenith Esports a Potential Dark Horse?
When it comes to the underdogs, there’s one team to watch: Zenith Esports. Just looking at the odds, we can see there’s a giant difference between them, STK, Susquehanna and Oath. Third favorite Oath comes in at +350, while Zenith comes in fourth at a massive +1200.
The power gap is clear, but they look to be the best of the underdogs. They managed to steal away four wins and a ton of top-three finishes in the initial stages, showing they can actually take down all the favorites.
If they can pull it together and find some more consistency in their play, Zenith may just make something happen in the final stage.
