Best Odds: Entropiq -250 at BetOnline | ECSTATIC +175 at BetOnline

Despite parting ways with star AWPer Aleksey “El1an” Gusev in September, Entropiq have been holding on well, and they even won their first tournament title of 2022 last week at CCT North Europe Series #1 with a 2-1 reverse sweep of 1WIN in the finals.

Their title run was a nice change of pace, seeing how Entropiq have won just two of the five matches leading into CCT North Europe Series #1, with defeats against Copenhagen Flames (0-2), Bad News Eagles (0-2), and 1WIN (0-2).

ECSTATIC have also claimed just one CS:GO trophy in 2021, in September when they won Pelaajat.com Nordic Masters: Fall 2022. Since then, ECSTATIC have suffered early exits from Intel Extreme Masters Road to Rio European RMR A (15th-16th), Elisa Invitational Fall (16th-18th), CCT North Europe Series #1 (17th-19th), BLAST Premier Fall European Showdown 2022 (5th-8th), and Champions League Season 1 (5th-8th).

Moreover, ECSTATIC have won just 45.7% of their matches across the last three months and are 3-10 since the turn of the month. Evidently, ECSTATIC are in terrible shape, and it will take a lot more than Entropiq not playing well for the Danes to come out on top.

Best Odds: forZe -188.68 at BetOnline | Fnatic.R +137 at BetOnline
When: November 2, 2022 | 19:00 CEST

ForZe are priced as -188.68 favourites for this match, which might make sense, considering they will play against an academy team. But we wouldn’t count out Fnatric Rising just yet.

Since the departure of Filip “DEPRESHN” Jarkić, Fnatic Rising have been looking for a new AWPer, and while they’ve yet to locate a permanent replacement, Fnatic Rising found a stand-in, in Adam “WolfY” Andersson, formerly of ECSTATIC.

Although not a top-tier player, WolfY is an excellent addition to the team, which he had proven earlier this month, leading Fnatic Rising to the WePlay Academy League Season 6 play-in stage. ForZe have achieved slightly more over the last month, with a semifinals appearance at CCT South Europe Series #1, but they’ve also lost against teams that aren’t that much stronger than Fnatic Rising (Sprout, 1WIN, Iron Breach, Tricked Esports).

It wouldn’t be surprising to see Fnatic Rising cause an upset, but we’ll tame our expectations and predict a close series with all three maps played.

Best Odds: SAW -151.52 at BetOnline | ex-Finest +110 at BetOnline
When: November 2, 2022 | 19:00 CEST

Former Team Finest roster have yet to find a new home, but they’ve been playing well, with a bronze medal from Svenska Cupen 2022 and a top-four finish at Elisa Invitational Fall 2022. Their only two losses during Elisa Invitational came against MASONIC and GamerLegion, which isn’t too bad.

SAW’s Elisa Invitational Fall 2022 title is a solid testament to their quality, but it was also the Portuguese squad’s first B-Tier (or better) tournament victory since June 2021, when they won Master League Portugal Season 7. So it’s tough to say whether their title run was a flash in the pan or an indication of what is to come.

Talent-wise, we wouldn’t say that SAW are much stronger than ex-Finest, and while you could argue that they’re in better form, SAW have also dropped maps against Movistar Riders and TYLOO, so it’s unlikely that they’ll manage a perfect score on Wednesday.
