Betting sites have started to reveal the odds for the winner of Champions 2023. Los Angeles, in just over a week will host the biggest Valorant tournament with the best teams competing for over $2,000,000 in prize pool money.

Fnatic Is Expected To Stomp At Valorant Champions 2023

While each of the teams has its own odds to win in LA, Fnatic stand above them all. What makes them think Fnatic will have it that easy?

Well here are the possible reasons:

  • They won Masters Tokyo and were clearly levels above everyone
  • The current "GOAT" of Valorant is playing for them
  • They are performing extremely well as a team

Masters Tokyo was just a small part of their hot run this season. They previously won the VCT LOCK//IN, and managed to win their EMEA League undefeated, just like Arsenal won the Premier in 2003. Can we call them the Invincibles of Valorant?

The Bettors Curse

While it's good to be accounted as the favorite, it takes a toll as well. The bettor's curse is something that's present in regular sports and affects everyone. If you're a fan of sports betting, you surely know what we mean.

The team with the best odds is usually the team that doesn't win the event. But, there are cases where teams broke the curse, but it's still haunting teams. The teams to look out for in this year's Champions are surely Paper Rex, EG & EDward Gaming. This has nothing to do with the odds, but the way they are currently playing.

EG was second at Masters Tokyo, and PRX managed to surprise us all and do super well with a sub on their team. Paper Rex's "something" is expected to play in Los Angeles, as he probably won't have the visa issues he had for the Masters in Tokyo. EDward Gaming is the team that continues to surprise us and is doing miracle's this season.
