ESB’s free Counter-Strike: Global Offensive betting picks for Saturday, October 2 focus on three Intel Extreme Masters Season XVI Fall Europe bouts. Here are our selections for Complexity vs Astralis, Dignitas vs OG, and Team Vitality vs ENCE, with top odds courtesy of BetOnline.


COMPLEXITY vs ASTRALIS CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: Complexity -111.11 at BetOnline | Astralis -121.95 at BetOnline
When: October 2, 2021 at 19:00 CEST

Many people will want to fade Complexity following their performance against FaZe Clan (14-16, 16-7, 0-16) on Sunday at BLAST Premier: Fall Groups 2021. Still, this is a good team, more than capable of competing against elite rosters – with or without Kristian “k0nfig” Wienecke.

Astralis have been more stable with their showings, but they’re not that much better than Benjamin “blameF” Bremer and his crew. It’s also important to consider that the core players of Astralis are reportedly leaving the organisation at the end of the season, so it’s fair to question their motivation.

This is a 50/50 match that can go both ways. We like Complexity at the offered CS:GO betting odds.

DIGNITAS vs OG CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: Dignitas +171 at BetOnline | OG -238.1 at BetOnline
When: October 2, 2021 at 20:15 CEST
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/esl_csgo)


Dignitas will have to overperform to qualify for the 2021 PGL Major Stockholm, and while it wouldn’t be the first time they would defy the odds, we wouldn’t count on it happening. That’s not necessarily because Dignitas are a bad team, but because they’re weaker than most teams in their group, including OG.

OG have flown under the radar for a while, but they are a dark horse team to win any premier CS:GO tournament. That was evident at ESL Pro League Season 14, where OG finished fourth, adding to their success from June when Aleksi “Aleksib” Virolainen and co. reached the finals of Intel Extreme Masters XVI Summer.

What’s more, OG’s only three losses since August (7-3) came against Vitality (world no.3), NaVi (no.1), and FaZe Clan (no.5). OG are much better than Dignitas and should win with at least five rounds to spare.

OG -4.5 rounds

TEAM VITALITY vs ENCE CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: Vitality -285.71 at BetOnline | ENCE +200 at BetOnline
When: October 2, 2021 at 20:15 CEST

Team Vitality are not quite as good as they were at the end of 2020, but they’re slowly getting there. The French squad have made it to the finals of ESL Pro League Season 14 (2-3 against Natus Vincere) and won Group A at BLAST Premier: Fall Groups 2021 earlier this month, which are excellent results.

They still have some things to work on, but Vitality have finally started playing like a proper team. ENCE have shown some life with a top-eight finish at the ESL Pro League; but their only wins came against two struggling teams in Astralis and Team Spirit and Bad News Bears.

ENCE can have their moments, but they are outclassed by Vitality in all aspects of the game. ENCE are not what they used to be, and unless Mathieu “ZywOo” Herbaut and co. underperform, the Finns will struggle to keep this match close.

Team Vitality -4.5 rounds
