100 Thieves and FUT Esports will meet on Thursday, May 30, in the first round of the VALORANT Champions Tour (VCT) 2024: Masters Shanghai Playoffs. It'll mark their first meeting of the season and according to esports betting odds, 100 Thieves should win.

Valorant betting sites have 100 Thieves priced as 1.45 favourites to defeat FUT Esports, who enter the match as 2.60 underdogs. As Americas' first seed, 100 Thieves have yet to play a game in China, but their performances in the first stage are a good enough indication that they're a solid side.

  • 100 Thieves received a direct bye into VCT 2024: Masters Shanghai 2024 playoffs
  • FUT Esports did enough to reach the knockout stage
  • The two teams have yet to meet this VCT season

100 Thieves Form


100 Thieves had a slow start to the 2024 Valorant season, with a 10th-11th-place finish in VCT 2024: Americas Kickoff. However, they turned it around for the first stage.

In VCT 2024: Americas Stage 1, 100 Thieves placed second in Group Omega and produced a near-perfect run in the playoffs, with wins against LOUD (2-0), Leviatan (2-1), G2 Esports (2-1), and again G2 Esports in the grand final (3-0).

Having proven themselves as Americas' top Valorant esports team, 100 Thieves are expected to do well in Shanghai. However, they've only really looked good against regional opponents this season, so it's tough to say how they'll fare against Europe's no.3 seed.

FUT Esports Form


FUT Esports qualified for VCT 2024: Masters Shanghai as the third seed from EMEA, which is a respectable accomplishment. Like 100 Thieves, FUT had a slow start to the season, with a seventh-ninth-place finish in VCT 2024: EMEA Kickoff, only to find more momentum in Stage 1.

In VCT 2024: EMEA Stage 1, FUT Esports won Group Omega and looked good in the playoffs; however, they came out short against Team Hertetics (0-2) in the upper bracket semifinals and Fnatic (1-3) in the lower bracket final. Still, while FUT could've done better, their only two defeats came against Europe's top two teams.

In Shanghai, FUT Esports have so far played three games and won two. They lost their opener against FunPlus Phoenix (1-2) and bounced back with two strong showings against Dragon Ranger Gaming (2-0) and Leviatan (2-1).

Verdict

100 Thieves are getting a lot of respect on the Valorant esports betting markets, which isn't too surprising, as they're Americas' top team in China. Meanwhile, FUT Esports had a bit of a bumpy road so far this season and while they've played some good games domestically, their run in Shanghai hasn't been too exciting.

FUT Esports have so far beaten only two relatively weak teams in DRG and Leviatan, while their loss to FPX suggests that FUT might not be that good. Still, relative to 100 Thieves, FUT Esport still look competitive, and there aren't that many reasons to have 100 Thieves priced as 1.45 favourites – besides the fact that they won VCT Americas.

This should be a close game.
