ESL Pro League North America S12 playoffs
Evil Geniuses and FURIA will meet once again in the upper-bracket finals of ESL Pro League Season 12.
The two were equally matched for a while, but FURIA’s form has dropped off in recent times with consecutive losses to 100 Thieves and Chaos Esports Club. Evil Geniuses have won six of last seven meetings between the two, although it was FURIA who triumphed when they clashed in Week 3 of the ESL Pro League.
It should come as no surprise that we’re in favor of EG, as are the odds at most CS:GO betting sites.
