CS:GO Road to Rio Predictions Continued

3-2 on eSports in 2019 up 3.53 units 

8-6 in 2020 up 2.38 units 

Shoutout to 100 Thieves for dominating like I thought they would.

Movistar Riders +1.5 at -104 for 1 unit. Movistar Riders have not been swept in their first 3 games of their qualification. G2 are the better team, but the Riders are playing consistently right now. Lowel has even been picking it up.

Nemiga +1.5 at -110 for 3 units. Nemiga can win on Mirage or Nuke. Vertigo and Train will get vetoed. Lollipop has been playing really well. Nemiga have a better chance than these odds entail.

Evil Geniuses -1.5 at -179 for 5 units. More fading of Triumph. EG will veto Triumph’s only great map in Overpass. Brehze will not let his team lose a map. EG are coming off of two close losses. I expect the Geniuses to come out fragging and prepared for this must win matchup. Here’s a fun Brehze clutch for good measure

CSGO Road to Rio Continues – Predictions and Insight

3-2 on eSports in 2019 up 3.53 units 

7-5 in 2020 down 0.62 units

100 Thieves -1.5 at -120 for 5 units. 100 Thieves are coming off of a solid win against EG. Grat played really well for a change. This is a Triumph Fade coupled with a team that may be getting hot at the right time in 100T. Triumph’s best map, Overpass, will get vetoed. These odds should be closer to -200 IMO. This should be the easiest game of the tourney for 100T.

Fnatic/Evil Geniuses/100 Thieves/Team Heretics +1.5 Parlay risking 1 unit to win 2.88 units. Why not? Fnatic will win easy. Evil Geniuses should take care of a struggling Cloud9 side. Heretics should be able to choose one of Dust2, Vertigo, or Overpass and get a win on it. Complexity may or may not be the better side, but I do think Heretics have a deeper map pool that will get them the cover. French > NA

 

CS:GO Road to Rio Predictions Continued

3-2 on eSports in 2019 up 3.53 units 

6-5 in 2020 down 5.74 units

Fnatic at +128 for 4 units. Astralis are not as dominant as they used to be. Fnatic are coming off an 0-2 loss to ENCE. These odds would be closer to even if Fnatic performed well last time out. Fnatic are in more of a must-win situation than Astralis. No more overpowered Kriegs for Brollan, but I still love fnatic’s ability to win force buys. The public thinks this an easy win for Astralis at these odds because ENCE just beat fnatic. I am fading the public and taking a top 5 team at plus money. You can thank me now.

ESL One: Road to Rio CS:GO Predictions

3-2 on eSports in 2019 up 3.53 units 

4-4 in 2020 down 9.09 units

This tournament starts today on April, 22nd and ends May 10th. Over two weeks of high level CS:GO to watch. I am excited. It isn’t the NBA playoffs, but it is the best thing we’ve got right now.

Complexity +1.5 at +110 for 3 units. Astralis just are not as dominate as they have been in year’s past. Complexity beat Astralis 2-0 back in February. I expect a close match. BlameF went 52-22 last time out against North. He is an excellent fragger. Astralis should be favored, but I like Complexity to get at least a map.

Cloud9 -1.5 at -116 for 3 units. Triumph are one of the worst teams in this high-level competition. Cloud9 have been playing tougher opponents for the most part, but some opponents, like Bad News Bears, have beat Triumph and lost to Cloud9. Transitive property is dangerous in CS:GO, but I like the matchup for a Cloud9 team that has to win this match if they want a real chance at moving on.

Evil Geniuses -1.5 at -169 for 5 units. Orgless have been playing valorant too much to beat EG. Brehze may be the best player in NA. EG can beat any team in CS on their day. I like them to take care of business in their first matchup of this major.

 

CS:GO ESL Pro League Stage 2 Predictions – OG vs Fnatic

3-2 on eSports in 2019 up 3.53 units 

4-3 in 2020 down 2.09 units

Fnatic at -195 for 7 units. KRIMZ is silly quick with his shot for Fnatic. Brollan is too nice with the Krieg. If JW is hitting his AWP shots, Fnatic will win 2-0. Flusha has some amazing positions on certain maps. This Fnatic team is hard to beat right now. They made Astralis and FaZe look like they didn’t belong in the server at times. OG looked good against Navi (the best team in the World), but it seems they are still a little behind the top 5/10 teams. Mantuu is a stud, but Fnatic are too good, especially on Dust2 and Inferno.

CS:GO – Esports Predictions

3-2 on eSports in 2019 up 3.53 units 

2-3 in 2020 down 6.75 units 

Mousesports at -113 for 4 units. I’ve watched the last two FaZe matches and Coldzera and Broky have been missing shots. Niko is always a beast, but they seem to be missing shots and not working together as well as the normally do. Mousesports are simply more consistent so I am taking them here.

Natus Vincere at -287 for 3 units. I though Navi would be favored at around -400, so I will take the value.
