SKADE vs K23 CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: SKADE -140.85 at BetOnline | K23 +105 at BetOnline

K23 have yet to lose against SKADE in their three meetings dating back to August 2020, yet it’s the Bulgarians who enter this bout as betting favourites.

Much of that has to do with SKADE’s form. All five of their players are averaging positive ratings for the past three months, with three posting 1.10 or better. For K23, meanwhile, David “n0rb3r7” Danielyan is the only player showing that kind of consistency, averaging a 1.21 rating in the same stretch.

What’s more, SKADE have been far more efficient on five out of seven maps in the rotation, excluding Dust II (50%–57%) and Train (69%–88%), yet even those numbers don’t show an accurate picture. The difference in win rates on Dust II is marginal, whereas SKADE have played over four times as many maps on Train as K23 (35-8).

There is a world where this one goes to three maps. However, with the form SKADE have been showing, this is their game to lose.

ENCE vs TEAM FIEND CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: ENCE -131.58 at BetOnline | Fiend -103.09 at BetOnline

Since Aleksi “allu” Jalli took a break from competitive play, ENCE have gone undefeated with wins over SKADE (2-1), Dignitas (2-0), and Team Fiend (2-0), the latter of whom they defeated just two weeks back.

The LOOT.BET/CS Season 9 finals clash between ENCE and Team Fiend ended in a commanding victory for the Finnish side, who won with 16-6 on both Overpass and Train. That would suggest ENCE are in for another easy victory, but that might not be the case.

Since their last meeting, ENCE have not played a single match, whereas Team Fiend have played seven and won all of them. That includes sweeps of PACT, Izako Boars, Copenhagen Flames, and 100PingGods.

Given the improvement Fiend have been showing over the last two weeks, we have reason to believe they’ll perform better on Saturday. Whether that will be enough for them to come out ahead is anyone’s guess, but they should at least force a three-map series.
