European Development Championship Season 3

100PINGGODS vs ENDPOINT CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: 100PG +260 at BetOnline | Endpoint -400 at BetOnline
When: April 7, 2021 at 12:00 CEST

Endpoint enter European Development Championship Season 3 straight off a 13th-16th finish at ESL Pro League Season 13, where they failed to make it out of Group D (2-3) but showed something with their performances. Despite being faced with some of the best CS:GO teams in the world, Endpoint still managed to win series against Fnatic (2-0) and Evil Geniuses (2-0), which is quite an achievement for a team of this calibre.

Although it’s not wise to overreact to a couple of solid showings, Endpoint have been playing at a much higher level than 100PingGods, which should benefit the British side. Even before the ESL Pro League, Endpoint made a strong statement with a top-eight finish in the Pinnacle Cup, where they beat Lyngby Vikings, GODSENT, Nemiga Gaming, Copenhagen Flames, and forced BIG to three maps in a 1-2 loss.

Endpoint have been playing teams significantly stronger than 100PingGods of late, so this should be more of a practice match for Max “MiGHTYMAX” Heath and co. rather than a proper challenge.

ANONYMO ESPORTS vs TRIDENT CLAN CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: Anonymo -175.44 at BetOnline | Trident +129 at BetOnline
When: April 7, 2021 at 13:00 CEST
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/edenesports)


These sides last met just a few days back during Snow Sweet Snow 3 when Anonymo Esports won 2-1. Trident Clan took the series lead with 16-6 on Train but were unable to match Anonymo on Overpass (10-16) and Inferno (14-16).

It would be fair to say that Trident might have won that bout had they been a bit more efficient on Inferno’s CT-side, where they held a 13-11 lead but dropped five out of the next six rounds. It’s also important to note that Evgeny “Norwi” Ermolin had an uncharacteristically bad performance that day, posting a disastrous 0.54 rating on the final map (0.81 overall), so there is a strong chance we might see a stronger version of Trident this time out.

Even though Anonymo proved to be the better team last time out, they’re definitely not as strong as the latest CS:GO betting odds suggest. The Poles looked good on Overpass, but they got smacked by Trident on Train and were a bit lucky to steal the win on Inferno. At this price, we will gladly take Trident to avenge their loss.

VALORANT Champions Tour 2021: EU Stage 2 Challengers 1

TEAM HERETICS vs OPPORTUNISTS VALORANT BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

Valorant Betting Odds: Heretic -188.68 at BetOnline | Opportunists +137 at BetOnline
When: April 7, 2021 at 17:00 CEST
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/VALORANT_Esports_EU)


Team Heretics enter VALORANT Champions Tour 2021: EU Stage 2 Challengers 1 off a painful performance in the open qualifiers where they beat Entropiq and Rix.GG but lost the final match against Alliance (1-2). Although they did well enough to secure a spot at this tournament, Heretics can’t be too happy about their performances against Enzo “Fearoth” Mestari and his crew, who reverse swept them 13-6 on Icebox and Ascent.

Opportunists attended the same tournament but were far more successful. They won all three of their fixtures against HOMELESS, LASAGNA BEAM, and Guild Esports, which is a great run for a roster that came together less than a week ago.

The latest VALORANT betting odds suggest Heretics should win with ease, but it feels like the price is set mostly on brand value rather than the teams’ form. Heretics might be the second-highest rated team in Europe and going at 31-2 since November 2020, but we don’t believe they will have an easy time against the French squad. Expect a close series that can go either way.

FUNPLUS PHOENIX vs TEAM VITALITY VALORANT BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

Valorant Betting Odds: FPX -188.68 at BetOnline | Vitality +137 at BetOnline
When: April 7, 2021 at 20:00 CEST
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/VALORANT_Esports_EU)


The question for this match is not so much whether FunPlus Phoenix will win, but rather what can Team Vitality do to prove they’re better than what the betting odds suggest. At +285, Vitality’s implied probability to win is only 26%, which is far too low despite FPX’s strong recent form.

FPX enter this match with an 8-2 record, and we should ignore their shaky series with Fnatic and Guild Esports. They also lost against Acend at VALORANT Champions Tour 2021: Europe Stage 1 Masters, but that’s not really a huge concern when facing the no.1 team in Europe.

The only issue we have with Team Vitality is that this is a relatively new team that has only three games on its record since the start of March. That run includes 2-1 wins against G2 Esports and KLATWA, and a 0-2 loss against Acend. We expect FPX to win, but we have seen enough from Vitality to believe they can steal one map and make the series interesting.

FunPlus Phoenix 2-1 correct score
