CHAOS EC VS TEAM SINGULARITY CSGO WINNERS LEAGUE NA BETTING PREVIEW
Chaos EC and Team Singularity will meet in the closing quarter-finals fixture of the WINNERS League Season 3 – NA Invite Division. The two North American squads will duke it out in a best-of-three (Bo3) series in a bid to secure a meeting with Swole Patrol in the semi-finals.
Chaos earned their spot in the playoffs with a flawless run through the group stage, where they did not lose a single match. While two wins came via forfeits from Team One and Monstars, Chaos made easy work of the other sides, with the only team that caused them any issues being eUnited (22-20).

Since the WINNERS League group stage finished back in November, Chaos have participated in WESG 2019 NA as well as IEM Katowice NA open and closed qualifiers.
Chaos bested LiViD Gaming (16-2, 16-5) at WESG NA to secure a ticket for the main event and managed to keep their momentum going into the IEM Katowice open qualifiers, where they defeated two stacks and eUnited to secure a spot in the closed qualifiers. There, however, Chaos failed to make much noise, crashing out after suffering 0-2 defeats against Complexity and MiBR.
Chaos finished their busy schedule with a win against New England Whalers on Wednesday, January 15, in round one of the WINNERS League playoffs.
Unlike Chaos, who cruised through the WINNERS League group stage, Singularity had moments where it seemed like they would not make the cut. Fortunately for Atle “Atle” Stehouwer and his men, everything fell into place when it mattered.
SNG pocketed four forfeit wins against Bushido Boyz, Good Game PR, Team Hyper and Rebirth Esports in the group stage, meaning SNG won only one match against Faintz and lost their two remaining fixtures against MAC-51 and Riot Squad Esports.
Since their last match in the group stage of the WINNERS League, SNG have participated in both stages of IEM Katowice American open qualifiers. There, they defeated Recon 5 and Man I Love Fragging but lost to Riot Squad and Just For Fun, thus failing to lock in a spot in the closed qualifiers.
SNG also made an appearance at Mythic Cup 5 at the start of January, where they lost to Rugratz in the semi-finals. Their poor streak continued at the DreamHack Open Leipzig 2020 NA qualifiers, where they crashed out of the event with a quarter-final defeat to Complexity.
On a more positive note, SNG defeated Rep Gang in round one of the WINNERS League playoffs last Thursday to push their win rate for the last three months to 54.5%.
Both teams made some major changes at the start of 2020. Singularity parted ways with Will “dazzLe” Loafman and Jordan “Zellsis” Montemurro on Friday, meaning they currently have only three members on the active roster. Chaos benched Gage “Infinite” Green and signed the controversial British AWPer Owen “smooya” Butterfield, who left BIG at the start of the year.
CHAOS VS SINGULARITY WINNERS LEAGUE QUARTER-FINALS PREDICTIONS
Esports bookmakers have Singularity priced as slight favourites for the first-ever meeting between these two rosters.
Due to the recent departure of their players, Singularity will play this match with three stand-ins. Shahzeeb “ShahZaM” Khan and Hunter “SicK” Mims are on loan from Complexity, alongside eUnited rifler Kaleb “moose” Jayne.
While those three are without a doubt an upgrade, we have to consider there will be a lack of any real synergy in the team.
Chaos have only one new arrival in smooya, who has averaged a 1.31 rating in his three games with Chaos. That figure leads us to believe he will do just fine with his new team.
This will be a very close bout. While the new additions to SNG could, in theory, carry the team to a victory, we would not count on that happening. Chaos have an advantage in terms of team synergy and that alone should give them the needed edge to win here.
