ESL Pro League Season 17: Group D UB Final betting odds

The action in Group D is heating up, as we get ready to close out the Group Stage at ESL Pro League Season 17 in style with the Upper Bracket Final.

ESL Pro League Season 17: forZe vs ENCE Group D Upper Bracket Final betting odds

The two teams competing in the March 19 Upper Bracket Final have both already qualified for the Playoffs, which will take place from March 21-26. The Upper Bracket Final winner will qualify for the Quarterfinals, while the runner-up will move on to the Round of 12 as the High Seed.

Once in the Playoffs, the surviving teams will be fighting it out for their share of the $850,000 prize pool, with the ultimate champion receiving $200,000, alongside 3,000 BLAST Premier points and invitations to both IEM Cologne and the BLAST World Final.

But before all that, we have the Upper Bracket Final to look forward to - which will see forZe and ENCE fighting it out at 15:00 GMT on March 19.

forZe (1.85) vs ENCE (1.85)

Few expected to see forZe make it all the way to the Upper Bracket Final, with the Russian team having had an incredible Cinderella story so far in this tournament. Despite coming into ESL Pro League Season 17 with low expectations, forZe immediately stunned their critics with an upset 2-1 win over Natus Vincere (NAVI) in the Upper Bracket Quarterfinals. After that, forZe went on to cement their incredible run (and their place in the Playoffs) by defeating Team Spirit, once again against the odds, with a score of 2-1. This is a team who has achieved incredible results despite the odds again and again - and their performance in the Upper Bracket Final is bound to be a must-watch.

ENCE have similarly had a strong run through the Group D Upper Bracket, though a cynic might argue they've had easier matchups than forZe has so far. ENCE has mostly faced off underdog teams so far, having defeated ATK in the Quarterfinals with a score of 2-1, before claiming a 2-0 victory over Rare Atom in the Semifinals. Neither team were expected to give ENCE a run for their money, but Group D has been full of upsets so far - with Rare Atom having successfully faced off the mighty Team Liquid in the Quarterfinals. ENCE's Group Stage may not have been as dramatic as forZe's, but that's no reason to overlook them in this exciting Upper Bracket Final.

The odds are neck and neck here, with both teams boasting odds of 1.85.

ENCE or forZe - who are you supporting? The Group Stage is about to come to a close, with the Playoffs just around the corner.
