BREN ESPORTS vs CHECKMATE CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CSGO odds: Bren Esports -217.39 at BetOnline | CHECKMATE +157 at BetOnline
When: January 8, 2021 at 14:00 CST

Bren Esports enter this match off a fairly solid performance against Invictus Gaming (1-2) on Wednesday, when they took the series lead on Train (16-8), but fell apart and lost on Dust II (9-16) and Inferno (8-16). CHECKMATE, on the other hand, were far less convincing in their fixture and suffered a devastating 0-2 loss against TYLOO.

These teams last met just over three weeks ago, when Bren Esports secured a narrow 2-1 victory with a 19-16 overtime win on Overpass. CHECKMATE have since won against Let’s Quit, w2c and lost against TYLOO. Bren Esports only game besides their loss against IG was a convincing win against Huat Zai.

Bren seem like the most likely victors here, but we don’t believe the latest Counter-Strike: Global Offensive betting odds are fair. Bren have not improved one bit since their last clash with CHECKMATE and considering all but one of their four head-to-head meetings in 2020 ended in three-map series, it’s fair to expect another tight affair on Friday.

BREN ESPORTS vs CHECKMATE CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

Event: Funspark Rivals Pre-Season
CSGO odds: IG +189 at BetOnline | Tyloo -270.27 at BetOnline

TYLOO are not nearly as strong as they were with Hansel “BnTeT” Ferdinand, but they are still one of the strongest Counter-Strike: Global Offensive teams from their region.

Last weekend TYLOO attended the Hot Pot Masters Championship, where they lost only two series, one of which was a 1-2 defeat against Invictus Gaming in the grand final, which marked IG’s second head-to-head victory (2-3) since October.

Historically, TYLOO do well against IG, but the recent trend indicates the gap between these two rivals is not as big as it used to be. IG have already beaten TYLOO only three days ago and also enter this match in great form (7-1), so it’s fair to expect IG to put up a fight and make TYLOO work hard for the win. The real dreamers might also want to bet on IG to win at $2.89.
