GAMBIT ESPORTS vs MIBR CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: Gambit -163.93 at BetOnline | MiBR +120 at BetOnline

Gambit Esports are the reigning IEM Katowice champions, so it is no surprise to see them priced as favourites against a squad that hadn’t competed in any major international tournaments before joining MiBR. But while it is easy to be blinded by Gambit’s recent success, we have to consider that they won that title almost a month back and have since played only one match against Copenhagen Flames, which they lost 1-2.

Although that one loss doesn’t overshadow Gambit’s achievement, it still suggests the Russians are either tired or ring rusty. Whichever it is, they could be vulnerable to dropping games against weaker sides. And it’s not even like MiBR are a weak team, as they showed in February when they beat Fnatic and stole maps off Heroic, Natus Vincere and Cloud9.

MiBR should lose this match more often than not, but they have played well enough of late for us to trust them at the map line.

NATUS VINCERE vs CLOUD9 CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: NaVi -357.14 at BetOnline | C9 +284 at BetOnline
When: March 19, 2021 at 15:30 CET

Natus Vincere are undeniably the stronger team here, but the Ukrainians tend to underperform in the tournament openers. It is unclear why that’s the case, but NaVi usually need a few games to warm up.

Cloud9 are a much weaker team than NaVi, and their recent losses against VOYVODA (1-2) and Winstrike (1-2) make it hard to argue they are in a position to win this bout. However, they can have their moments of greatness, and it’s not like they lack individual quality.

Although we are hesitant about betting on Cloud9 in their current state, that is still a better option than siding with NaVi for the opening game of the group. C9 should win one map, but we don’t expect much more than that.

FURIA vs TEAM ONE CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: FURIA -714.29 at BetOnline | oNe +499 at BetOnline

In an online tournament, it is often smart to look for a bet on the underdogs. That said, we cannot find a single reason to side with Team One, who have been playing extremely poorly during their stay in Europe.

Team One enter this match with a 2-6 record since the start of March, with their only wins coming against Movistar Riders (2-0) and Lyngby Vikings (2-0). While those victories are decent enough for a team of this calibre, those squads are nowhere near as strong as FURIA.

FURIA might have disappointed a bit at IEM Katowice, where they finished in seventh-eighth place, but this is still one of the top 12 CS:GO esports teams in the world. The quality gap here is far too big for us to consider taking the underdogs, and that’s all the explanation we need to give.
