ESB’s free Counter-Strike: Global Offensive betting predictions for Wednesday, October 4, focus on the first two games of BLAST Premier Fall European Showdown 2023. Here are our picks for 9INE vs BIG and ENCE vs Alliance, with odds courtesy of the top esports bookmakers in United States.

These teams last met at the end of May, when 9INE won 2-0, just three weeks before BIG revamped their roster by signing David “prosus” Hesse, Elias “s1n” Stein, and Mateusz “mantuu” Wilczewski. With the new lineup, BIG initially struggled to accomplish much, but they’ve recently found some traction and won CCT North Europe Series #7 and reached the final 12 at ESL Pro League Season 18.

In Malta, BIG defeated Monte (2-1) and Heroic (2-0) and played a close 1-2 series against ENCE before they were eliminated by Eternal Fire (0-2). So even though BIG didn’t make it very far, they have produced decent games over the last couple of weeks.

9INE also attended ESL Pro League Season 18, but they exited the tournament in the group stage with defeats against Complexity (1-2), Eternal Fire (0-2), and Lynn Vision (1-2). Before the ESL Pro League, 9INE also struggled in Thunderpick World Championship 2023: European Series #2, which suggests that the Poles lost the momentum they had gained at the start of the month when they won RES Western European Masters Fall 2023.

Talent-wise, there’s not much to separate these teams, but considering how shaky 9INE have looked recently, backing BIG to come out ahead is too good to pass on at -125 with top CS:GO betting sites.

Alliance are set to make their Counter-Strike debut on Wednesday when they clash with ENCE in what is expected to be a very one-sided game. ENCE are one of the world’s top CS squads and recently reached new heights with silver medals from Intel Extreme Masters Cologne 2023, Gamers 8 2023, and a semifinal appearance at ESL Pro League Season 18.

But while we know a lot about ENCE, Alliance are a bit of an enigma. They looked solid at XL Games 2023 over the weekend but didn’t have to face any top-tier teams.

This game should end in a comfortable victory for ENCE; however, they must feel fatigued as they had to play three big tournaments over one month. Additionally, they started showing cracks in the latter stages of the ESL Pro League when they dropped maps against MiBR and BIG.

At the offered CS betting odds, it’s worth taking a shot on Alliance with a map advantage. Alternatively, backing the outsiders to keep the score within seven rounds is also a solid choice.
