Natus Vincere are the reigning champions of the BLAST Premier Fall Finals and will enter the Fall Groups as the favourite to take out Group B. From September of 2021 to now, NaVi have won every single BLAST Premier event that has taken place, including the BLAST Premier World Final for 2021, so it is no surprise to see them sit second in the CS:GO world rankings.

NaVi haven’t finished lower than fourth place in any of their events over in the last 12 months. Their worst result in that stretch came at IEM Katowice 2022, where they finished in third-fourth place after being knocked out in the semi-finals. Since then, NaVi have only finished second to FaZe Clan, at both the PGL Major Antwerp and IEM Cologne 2022, while they won the BLAST Premier Spring Final in between.

Complexity, meanwhile, are on a three-game win streak having won their IEM Road to Rio 2022 NA Open Qualifier a few days ago. Complexity have fallen to no.47 in the world rankings, which is the lowest they have been since January of 2020. However, Complexity have now made a roster change with the addition of Hakon “hallzerk” Fjaerli and will be looking for some improvement in their second event since the mid-season break, although they will be massive outsiders to win this match against the juggernaut that is NaVi.

NaVi will be very, very short here and there is no way that we can see them losing this match, so we will be taking them at the rounds line of -4.5 at -125 at BetOnline.

Natus Vincere -4.5 rounds



Best Odds: G2 -151.52 at BetOnline | Liquid +110 at BetOnline

The second opening-round matchup brings us G2 Esports and Team Liquid, with both sitting inside the top 15 in the world rankings. G2 are now the no.11-ranked team and Liquid are no.12 in the world.

G2 have made some of the biggest changes since the mid-season break, benching their in-game leader Aleksi “Aleksib” Virolainen and cutting Audric “JACKZ” Jug from their roster. Replacing those two are the Australian stand-in superstar Justin “jks” Savage and ex-Copenhagen Flames player Rasmus “HooXi” Nielsen, who will be playing their first event for G2 against Liquid. For G2, these changes have to provide a much needed tournament success, which they have been starved of since October of 2021.

Liquid were one of the biggest surprise packets at IEM Cologne, where they made it all the way to the quarter-finals and finished in fifth-sixth place after they lost to Movistar Riders 1-2. After his outstanding performances since joining Liquid back in July, Mareks “YEKINDAR” Galinskis has chosen to stay with the North American organisation for good. This is massive for Liquid, as most of the teams in the CS:GO professional scene were trying to sign the young star.

G2 will be slender favourites in this series, and considering the big changes and the higher ranking, we can see why. However, we think this Liquid roster is now on the rise and can win this match over G2, so take the roughies at the moneyline.

Team Liquid to win
