BLAST Premier World Final 2022: Heroic vs OG predictions
Heroic are coming into the World Final fresh off their victory at the BLAST Premier Fall Finals back in November, defeating the mighty FaZe Clan in a stunning 2-1 victory at the grand final. It was the highlight of an already solid year for the team, after they made it all the way to the IEM Rio Major, and ranked in a respectable 3rd-4th place back at IEM Katowice 2022.
OG meanwhile have had something of a mixed year - with some highs and lows, but no tournament wins to their name so far in 2022. While Heroic were crowned victors at the Fall Finals, OG struggled - ranking in a disappointing 7th - 8th place. While the team has run into trouble at multiple Majors this year, they have performed well at both the BLAST Premier Spring Groups and Fall Groups earlier this year, showing their ability to defeat the likes of Ninjas in Pyjamas and Astralis.
The momentum is behind Heroic here, with the odds in their favour at 1.40 vs 2.70. Time will tell if underdog team OG can pull off a surprise win here, as they make their World Final debut.
