9INE defeated Astralis 2-0 in the opening round of Group C at Roobet Cup 2023, but they are expected to struggle against BIG. The Germans kicked off their Roobet Cup 2023 campaign with a 2-0 sweep of Apeks, although they needed overtime on Anubis (16-13) to come out ahead.

While BIG’s first match was close, the whole team played well, especially Karim “Krimbo” Moussa and Johannes “tabseN” Wodarz, who posted 1.40 and 1.31 performance ratings, respectively.

9INE and BIG have yet to meet on the Counter-Strike 2 server, but they’ve both played a good number of matches on the game’s newest version. BIG are 5-3 on the new game, while 9INE are 7-2.

This looks like a 50-50 match, so at the offered Counter-Strike betting odds, 9INE are a better choice. They played great against Astralis, and if the Poles can show the same form on Saturday, they should win.

Astralis entered Roobet Cup 2023 as one of the top dogs, but their lack of experience playing on Counter-Strike 2 showed on Thursday when the Danes lost (0-2) against 9INE. One loss doesn’t mean much, but it’s clear that Astralis are very rusty and not playing at 100%.

Apeks might be able to take advantage of the situation, but like Astralis, they’ve yet to show much on CS2. Even though Apeks have played nine games on Counter-Strike 2 and even attended Intel Extreme Masters Sydney 2023, Damjan “kyxsan” Stoilkovski and co. have yet to beat a good team, and their most notable result was a 2-0 sweep of Aurora at ESL Challenger at DreamHack Winter 2023 European Qualifier.

Astralis have a long way to go to be competitive, and the recent Counter-Strike roster drama, which has linked Jakob “jabbi” Nygaard and Martin “stavn” Lund with a move to Astralis, must have affected the team’s morale. This doesn’t mean Astralis will collapse, but Apeks, even in their current shape, are a solid bet on the map handicap market.
