MIBR vs CHAOS ESPORTS CLUB BLAST PREMIER: SPRING 2020 AMERICAN SHOWDOWN BETTING PREVIEW
MiBR and Chaos Esports Club will meet for the fifth time this year when they face off in Group A of the BLAST Premier: Spring 2020 American Showdown this Tuesday.
MiBR enter the tournament following an underwhelming run through DreamHack Masters Spring 2020: North America, where they lost against FURIA (0-2) and Team Liquid (0-2) but managed to outperform Chaos (2-0) to secure a spot in the playoffs. The Brazilians also struggled at ESL One: Road to Rio – North America, where they beat YeaH (2-0), Bad News Bears (2-0) and Envy (2-1) but fell flat against Liquid (0-2) and FURIA (0-2) again to finish in seventh-eighth place.
Due to a lack of any notable success since they reached the FLASHPOINT finals in April, MiBR opted to make some roster changes last month. Former Team One player Alencar “trk” Rossato came in as a replacement for Ignacio “meyern” Meyer, who was bumped down to the inactive roster.
To date, trk has played only three games with MiBR and averaged a poor 0.84 rating. While we can give the 24-year-old Brazilian esports pro some slack, as he needs some time to adjust to his new team, his performances are far from what MiBR need to re-establish themselves as one of the top CS:GO teams.
Chaos Esports Club enter the BLAST Premier Spring Showdown on a six-game winning streak, although most of those results came against considerably weaker teams. Throughout the last week, Chaos defeated Team One (2-0), Recon 5 (16-10), Infinity (16-9), New England Whalers (16-14), Blood, sweat, and tears (16-7) and picked up a forfeit win against Big Frames.
While Chaos have proven they can deliver against weaker teams, they tend to fall flat when facing stronger opposition, as seen in their journey through DreamHack Masters Spring 2020: North America. Nevertheless, Chaos showed some promise in that event with a 2-1 win over Liquid and a three-map loss against FURIA.
Joshua “steel” Nissan and co. have not achieved any notable results this year, which is no surprise given their roster instability since January. Star AWPer Owen “smooya” Butterfield left the team at the end of March, while Hunter “SicK” Mims announced his retirement from CS:GO esports in April to pursue a career in VALORANT with Sentinels.
Chaos made their last roster change on Tuesday, May 12, when the North American esports organisation parted ways with Nathan “leaf” Orf, who failed to impress during his trial, and replaced him with former Bad News Bears player Jonathan “Jonji” Carey. While Jonji has starred with a 1.22 average rating across 13 fixtures, he has not yet been offered a permanent contract.
MIBR vs CHAOS ESPORTS CLUB BLAST PREMIER: SPRING 2020 AMERICAN SHOWDOWN BETTING PREDICTIONS
Chaos Esports Club (61.2%) and MiBR (60%) hold similar win rates across the last three months. Those numbers don’t mean much, however, considering Chaos faced much weaker opponents in that time.
Esports bookmakers have installed MiBR as favourites for this match, which is not surprising given they recently defeated Chaos at FLASHPOINT (2-1) and DreamHack Masters Spring 2020: North America (0-2). Having said that, the Brazilian have been struggling of late, especially since the Counter-Strike esports scene transitioned to online play.
This bout will be played as a best-of-one (Bo1) contest, which brings the underdogs right into the contest. While we are not will to back Chaos outright, over 26.5 rounds is a very tempting option. Chaos reached double digits on both maps in their last meeting with MiBR, and there is no reason to believe they can’t do it again here.
