Who can win the tournament?
There are several teams that have enough power to lift the trophy at the end. Additionally, predicting the winner in VALORANT betting is so tough because the game itself features a lot of back and forth. Mental game is crucial in the game and a few moment could cause a team to lose the whole game. However, there are upfronts. LOUD, who couldn’t get what they wanted at Stage 2 Masters, Fnatic, who came to the tournament with a strong full roster, FunPlus Phoenix, the defending champion, and Paper Rex, which is getting better with each passing organization. On the other hand, Edward Gaming, which everyone is curious about, and OpTic, which we are used to seeing in the finals, can also win the tournament.
