INORI TO WIN @2.48Final result: 2 - 0
Profit: 0.00 - 5 = -5
Starcraft 2 game from GSL Code A. Best of 3.
This two are both really good players, but the odds are too high right now for Inori.
The TSL Porotss player is on a really good moment, having qualified for this event thorugh the preliminaries. He faced good opponents there, unlike some other qualified players.
He has also been doing really well at other online tournaments and it's all up to his performance in front of the cameras, because he is not very used to it.
His team, TSL, is arguably the second or third best team in the league right now, mainly due to their zergs, but the coaches are doing a great work.
KeeN is a good terran player, as stated before, but he is not on his best moment. He lost at te Up&Down games and his 2-2 record there still doesn't show how bad he played, because he did nothing at all.
I don't think he is fit enough for this match, but his good record against protosses in the past gives him the favourite spot, which is fine, but at way lower odds.

Thanks for elaborating.
The match has been played and Inori was as far from taking a game of Keen as one could possible be. Keen simply was in a different league.
Inori last played a Bo3 at GSL in 2010. It's a long time not qualifying, but he is playing a lot better since he joined TSL earlier this year. That's on international events, specially MLGs and other offline tournaments. He has gained a lot of experience through that, but sometimes you can still feel his nerves, as in him vs DeMusliM at IEM Cologne 2 months ago, where he needed a win over his opponent to advance to the next round but he lost 2-0. First game was deceiving, second game was a lot better by him iirc.
The rest of his GSL games are from team leagues, and those are often missleading and should be taken with a grain of salt in my opinion.
As stated by him, he preffers Korean teams a lot more than foreigns, where he had spent most of his time prior to joining TSL. He is the only good protoss on his team but I think they are encouraging him really well.
KeeN is a great player, but his games don't seem to reflect it lately. That's what I saw at his Up&Down matches. My biggest concern with him is that he will, almost surely, practice with finale who needs to play a terran next week. He also has TaiLS and Vampire as good protosse on his team, but no good terran at all.
KeeN has not been playing good this past months. He is on a slump if we consider the way he plays and how he did previously, and is only taking defensive approaches to his games because of it. He is the most proven player here, therefore his favourite status, but I don't think he deserves this odds because Inori seems much more confident now.

Inoris TLPD stats (against terran):

Inoris stats seem quite so-so compared to Keens. How big of a slump is he in and where do you find stats from the preliminaries?
