ESB’s free Counter-Strike: Global Offensive betting tips for Thursday focus on fixtures played across three tournaments. Here are our best bets for the featured games at Flashpoint Season 3, EPIC CIS League Spring 2021, and the Elisa Invitational Summer 2021.
MOUSESPORTS vs G2 ESPORTS CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS
|CS:GO Betting Odds:||mouz +106 at BetOnline | G2 -126.58 at BetOnline|

Mousesports have done surprisingly well to make it thus far, but they’re now set to face their toughest Flashpoint Season 3 challenger yet. G2 Esports needed some time to get their wheel spinning, but they’re currently looking a top-three team in Europe and enter this bout in great form.
G2 have made it past FaZe Clan, Heroic, and Ninjas in Pyjamas to earn their spot in the Flashpoint semi-finals, whereas mouz had to edge past Fnatic BIG, and Astralis. This will be the first meeting between these two squads since late April when G2 swept the international roster with 16-10 on Vertigo and 16-12 on Mirage.
Both teams are in great form, however, we are leaning more towards G2. They have the talent to match any team in the world, but not the consistency to warrant backing a clean sweep. A 2-1 victory for the French-Balkan squad is something we expect to see.
G2 Esports to win 2-1
TEAM SPIRIT vs GAMBIT CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS
|CS:GO Betting Odds:||Spirit +124 at BetOnline | Gambit -169.49 at BetOnline|

Team Spirit and Gambit will clash in the EPIC CIS League Spring 2021 upper bracket semi-finals. It will mark their second meeting of the month, after Spirit upset the reigning IEM Katowice champions 2-0 during the group stage.
That victory marked Spirit’s first head-to-head triumph since October 2020, having lost four best-of series since then. Leonid “chopper” Vishnyakov and co. will be eager to repeat their success from a week back, but we can’t help but feel like Spirit overperformed a bit that day.
Seeing an underdog win in these CIS derbies is nothing unusual and it may happen again. Gambit are the better team, however, and should be favoured on the CS:GO betting markets. We expect a close series that will likely end in Gambit’s favour – albeit it won’t be a clean victory.

GORILLAZZZ vs NATUS VINCERE JUNIOR CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS
|CS:GO Betting Odds:||gorillazzz -175.44 at BetOnline | NaVi Jr +129 at BetOnline|

The Elisa Invitational 2021 Summer bout between gorillazzz and Natus Vincere Junior will be a clash between the young up-and-coming Ukrainians and the experienced line-up led by the three-time CS:GO Major champion Robin “flusha” Rönnquist.
Since forming his CS:GO project gorillazzz, flusha has yet to see much success. They’re 1-4 in their last five, which isn’t great, especially considering the quality of the teams that beat them – Sangal Esports, 100PingGods, and Copenhagen Flames.
Natus Vincere Junior have been doing better relative to the old guard, although they are winless in their last three, losing to Apeks and twice against Young Ninjas. We would normally side with gorillazzz due to the established talent they field, but at $1.57, this is not a position we’re interested in.
NaVi Jr. should be competitive enough to steal one map and make this bout interesting. They might even upset gorillazz, but we like overs as a safer bet.
