The Match-up

These two teams have never ever met each other in a official game! Looking at their performances from yesterday, there is only one thing I can point out – it’s CLG’s game versus NiP (13:16 for NiP at dust2). Yes, I think that NiP made a somewhat mistake by not banning dust2 versus the guys from NA, but, as the maps are randomly picked anyways, NiP just hoped for the best. On the other hand, the Poles got totally demolished by fnatic yesterday, who are looking totally unbeatable at this point. It’s actually quite sad that the youngsters from eBettle will not have any opponent at the Major that they could at least get into a somewhat equal fight. But that’s just how it goes when you’re attending the biggest event of CS:GO!

Prediction:  I don’t think CLG should have any problems in overcoming the Poles here. CLG have far more experience from playing at big stages than guys from eBettle, plus, CLG have always fought very well against top tier teams (and we can’t say that about Poles).

Suggestion:  Odds are about right! I would suggest going medium (or big if you feel confident enough) on CLG. Save your skins/money if you are a Polish fanbo though!

The Match-up

Despite Natus Vincere and CLG attending quite a big variety of tournaments, these two have actually never met each other! In my opinion, this could turn out to be one of the most interesting matches of the day, just because Na`Vi looked pretty shaky yesterday versus Titan (a team that on paper is quite below them) and CLG looked promising versus NiP (plus they always play good versus top tier teams). I wouldn’t want to rule CLG chances out here as this is a Best-of-One and if they come freshly off of a convincing win versus the Poles of eBettle, they could put up a decent battle against Russian-Ukranian powerhouse also (if they get a good start).

Prediction: Everyone still thinks that Na`Vi are the guys we saw back at ESWC 2015 (where they took home the gold), but it’s crystal clear that hey are not. We even saw glimpses of them being indecisive at a times yesterday in their game versus Titan. I do expect Na`Vi to win this, but it sure as hell can be a lot closer than 87%/13% game!

Suggestion: Odds are crap! Unless CLG convincingly wins eBettle, skip this one. Other wise you can go really small on boys from NA and hope for an upset!

The Match-up

These two have met each other twice (if I recall correctly) back in the online part of StarSeries XIII. Back then Na`Vi took better of Poles both times with 16:8 (mirage) and 16:7 (dust2) scorelines. Other than that, this match up is quite a no brainer so to say. The youngsters from eBettle stand little to no chance of winning the experienced and talented line up of Natus Vincere.

Prediction: This should be as one sides as the odds intent this game to be. I don’t think that Na`Vi will play around with a chance of securing their spot at the play-off’s, and as a very experienced team I think they will come in today as Na`Vi that has learned from their yesterdays mistakes!

Suggestion: Again – odds are crap! Just…skip this one ok?

Don’t bet what you can’t afford to lose! Good luck with your bets!
