Talon Esports vs DetonatioN FocusMe Predictions

Talon Esports and DetioatioN FocusMe will lock horns on Tuesday, May 16, on the final day of the Valorant Champions Tour (VCT) 2023 Pacific League. Both teams are already locked out of the playoffs, and regardless of how the game ends, Talon will end the year in ninth, while DFM will finish the season in 10th place.

Esports betting sites have Talon Esports priced as heavy (1.28) favourites to defeat DetonatioN FocusMe, who enter the match as 3.50 underdogs. The offered odds aren't that shocking, knowing that DFM are the worst-performing team in the league; however, have we seen enough from Talon to justify their price?

Head to Head

DetonatioN FocusMe and Talon Esports have not met once this season.

Talon Esports Form

Talon Esports enter the final day of VCT 2023 Pacific League with a 2-6 record, which locks Talon out of advancing to the playoffs. Although an unfortunate outcome, Talon Esports haven't shown enough to deserve a higher placement.

Throughout the seven weeks of play, Talon Esports have won just two series – against ZETA DIVISION (2-0) in Week 5 and against Gen.G (2-0) in Week 7. Beating Gen.G is no small feat considering Gen.G were one of the leading candidates to win the league; however, the Korean squad have recently started to struggle, so I'll take that win with a grain of salt.

Besides the two wins, Talon Esports looked shaky and couldn't find any consistency in their showings. They had their moments, though, particularly over the last two weeks, so perhaps Talon Esports are not as weak as their record suggests.

Talon Esports Squad & Team News

Talon Esports haven't announced any roster changes.

  • Thanamethk "Crws" Mahatthananuyut
  • Itthirit "foxz" Ngamsaard
  • Panyawat "sushiboys" Subsiriroj
  • Patiphan "patt" Chaiwong
  • Apiwat "GarnetS" Apiraksukumal
  • Jittana "JitboyS" Nokngam

DetonatioN FocusMe Form

DetonatioN FocusMe are 0-7 ahead of Tuesday's clash and guaranteed to win the VCT 2023 Pacific League wooden spoon. Over the seven series played, DFM have won just two maps; against Gen.G (1-2) in Week 2 and T1 (1-2) in Week 6. Besides that, DetonatioN FocusMe have given us nothing to feel excited about.

But most importantly - over their last two fixtures, DetonatioN Focus Me have lost against DRX (8-13, 4-12) and Global Esports (7-13, 6-13), struggling to leave a strong impression.

There isn't much to say about DetonatioN FocusMe – they're the worst team in the league, and based on their recent showings, it's tough to trust them to do well even against Talon Esports, who are all but guaranteed to end the year in ninth place.

DetonatioN FocusMe Squad & Team News

DetonatioN FocusMe haven't made any lineup changes.

  • Seo "Suggest" Jae-young
  • Ryumon "Reita" Oshiro
  • Yoshitaka "Anthem" Enomoto
  • Tomoki "xnfri" Moriya
  • Park "Seoldam" Sang-min
  • Shogo "takej" Takemori


Esports betting sites have priced Talon Esports as huge favourites to defeat DetonatioN FocusMe, and that sounds about right. Even though this match doesn't matter, as it won't affect the teams' final placement, it's still highly unlikely that Talon Esports will just turn off and allow DFM to run them over.

We could see a more relaxed approach from the teams, but that applies to both squads, so barring any surprises, Talon Esports should come out ahead without any major issues. DFM have had some solid moments this season, but those have become very scarce of late, so unless Talon Esports shoot themselves in the foot, we can expect a quick 2-0 sweep for the Thai squad.
