Intel Extreme Masters XV New York Online – CIS

VIRTUS.PRO vs K23 CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: VP -294.12 at BetOnline | K23 +207 at BetOnline
When: October 13, 2020 at 15:00 MSK
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/esl_csgo)


K23 have won 10 games in a row heading into the IEM New York CIS main event, including wins over Gambit (16-14) and Lyngby Vikings (2-0). Virtus.pro are 6-4 in their last 10 but have managed a perfect 5-0 run since last Thursday with wins against Giants Gaming (2-1), NaVi Junior (2-1) and HellRaisers (2-0).

Not only have VP defeated stronger teams, but K23 recently parted ways with their head coach, Asset “Solaar” Sembiev, who was suspended after he was found guilty of exploiting the CS:GO spectator bug. This won’t do K23 any favours when facing a team who swept them in May during ESL One Road to Rio CIS.

Since this is an online match, a three-map series is not entirely out of the question. However, the odds offered on VP to win 2-0 are too good for us to ignore.

ESPADA vs FORZE CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: ESPADA +208 at BetOnline | forZe -294.12 at BetOnline
When: October 13, 2020 at 15:00 MSK
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/esl_csgo)


Out of their three games played this month, ESPADA beat APOLOGIS Esport (19-15) but saw far less success against Lyngby Vikings (14-16) and Nemiga Gaming (0-2). ForZe, on the other hand, have won five out of their last seven games (5-2), although they’ve only looked good against weaker sides and severely underperformed against ENDPOINT (11-16) and Sprout (1-16).

ESPADA’s record is far from perfect, but we can’t ignore their results from September when they defeated Winstrike (2-0), SKADE (2-1) and SJ (2-0), and forced a three-map series against GODSENT (1-2). ForZe are still the most likely victors, but unless Andrey “Jerry” Mekhryakov and co. show a bit more consistency, ESPADA should steal at least one map.

Intel Extreme Masters XV New York Online – North America

TRIUMPH vs REBIRTH ESPORTS CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: Triumph -833.33 at BetOnline | Rebirth +473 at BetOnline
When: October 13, 2020 at 12:00 PDT
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/esl_csgo)


Rebirth Esports beat ImPerium Esports (2-1) but lost their remaining three fixtures this tournament against FURIA (0-2), New England Whalers (1-2) and Evil Geniuses (0-2). Likewise, Triumph have only one win, although they put up a strong resistance against FURIA (1-2) by forcing overtime in map one (19-22) and winning convincingly on Inferno (16-7).

Triumph are not as strong as they were with Michael “Grim” Wince; however, if their performance against FURIA is to go by, they should not struggle against Rebirth. The betting odds are not high, but anything over $1.40 is worth a shot.

FURIA vs NEW ENGLAND WHALERS CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: FURIA -2500 at BetOnline | Whalers +797 at BetOnline
When: October 13, 2020 at 12:00 PDT
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/esl_csgo)


New England Whalers have had their flashes of greatness this tournament and beat both ImPerium (2-0) and Rebirth (2-1), but Ben “ben1337” Smith and co. have yet to show anything that would lead us to believe they can cause any damage to the Brazilian juggernauts. Even though FURIA slipped when they dropped a map against Triumph last Wednesday, they’re still one of the best North American CS:GO teams, and their 2-0 win against Evil Geniuses proves that.

The odds offered on the -1.5 map handicap offer no value, but that does not mean there are no betting opportunities. FURIA are priced at $1.74 to win the first map with at least seven rounds to spare, which is very generous considering they have kept their opponents under 10 rounds in five out of nine maps this tourney.

LOOT.BET/CS Season 8

NEMIGA GAMING vs IZAKO BOARS CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: Nemiga -303.03 at BetOnline | Boars +212 at BetOnline
When: October 13, 2020 at 16:30 CEST
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/uccleague2)


Nemiga Gaming and Izako Boars last met in May during the UCC Summer Smash, where Nemiga sprung a reverse sweep to snatch a 2-1 win. It marked their third head-to-head win against Boars and the second of 2020 after they defeated the Polish squad in April (16-11).

Nemiga are 5-5 in their last 10 games, while Boars managed are 8-2 in the same stretch. Most recently, Mateusz “TOAO” Zawistowski and co. picked up wins against PLMIX (16-10) and AGO (2-0), whereas Nemiga took down ESPADA (2-0) but struggled against amateur team Killerz (17-19).

Even though Nemiga are the stronger team on paper, their slip-ups against amateur teams don’t inspire much confidence. Izako Boars might not have defeated any high-profile teams in a while, but they are far more consistent.
