Analysis:
Team SMG is the favorite on this one which makes no sense at all, based on their recent matches the first time they won was yesterday against Yangon Galacticos on a very close series with 2-1. Out of 8 matches, this is their first and only win since founded so it really makes no sense why they would be the favorites even if the team is composed of some old professionals.

HOYO is not so bad, although they recently lose against Army Geniuses that is because they don't have 23savage and FoREv to play with and their stand-ins didn't perform well. They are already at the bottom of this competition but can still rise up if they can start picking some wins today.

This game depends on whether HOYO wants to continue playing on this event or would focus on the DPC, as much as I want to go with them to win it's risky but definitely possible and my advice is to secure some win by taking the +1.5.

Prediction:
HOYO +1.5 (Medium Bet)
