ESB brings you Counter-Strike 2 betting predictions for four bouts at Roobet Cup 2023 on Thursday, October 26. Here are our selections for Astralis vs 9INE, Monte vs OG, BIG vs Apeks, and Fnatic vs Ninjas in Pyjamas, with esports odds courtesy of the best betting sites in United States.


ASTRALIS vs 9INE CS2 BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

Best Odds: Astralis -277.78 at BetOnline | 9INE +200 at BetOnline
When: October 26, 2023 | 15:00 CEST
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/RoobetEsports)

We haven’t heard much about Astralis over the last month because the Danes haven’t played an official match since their 13th-16th exit from ESL Pro League Season 18. So not only have Astralis been inactive for a month, but they’ve also yet to play an official match on CS2.

9INE have attended two events since ESL Pro League Season 18, including the ESL Challenger at DreamHack Winter 2023 European Open Qualifier and BLAST Premier Fall European Showdown 2023, but they haven’t looked good in either, with 17th-32nd and fifth-eighth finishes, respectively.

Individually, Astralis are much stronger than 9INE; however, they’re known to be inconsistent, and it doesn’t help that Astralis have yet to play an official CS2 tournament.

MONTE vs OG CS2 BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

Best Odds: Monte -250 at BetOnline | OG +175 at BetOnline
When: October 26, 2023 | 15:00 CEST

Monte left quite an impression with their semifinal run at ESL Pro League Season 18 in September, but they didn’t show as much at Intel Extreme Masters Sydney 2023, where they placed seventh-eighth. In their defence, Monte’s only two defeats of the tournament came against Complexity (9-13, 0-2), but they only beat Grayhound (2-0) and Fnatic (2-1).

OG have not looked good ever since the lineup change in the summer and haven’t placed higher than the top six across five events. And while they might turn it around on CS2, even that seems highly unlikely. OG lack top-tier talent and need to start exploring options to bring in more firepower.

Monte might be a bit overrated, and they haven’t looked great on CS2, but at least they have played the newest version of the game and have been active over the last few weeks. OG, on the other side, have played just one game in the last 31 days.

BIG vs APEKS CS2 BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

Best Odds: BIG -138.89 at BetOnline | Apeks +100 at BetOnline
When: October 26, 2023 | 18:00 CEST
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/RoobetEsports)

BIG and Apeks have both found some success at different points of the season. Apeks reached the semifinals of BLAST.tv Paris Major 2023 in May and have since won Elisa Invitational Spring 2023 and added another top-four finish at CCT East Europe Series #2 in September.

BIG have not placed inside the top four in a single S-Tier tournament, but they won CCT North Europe Series #7 at the end of August and reached the finals of BLAST Premier Fall European Showdown 2023 a couple of weeks ago.

Apeks and BIG attended the ESL Challenger at DreamHack Winter 2023 European Qualifier at the start of October and finished the event in fifth-sixth and seventh-eighth, respectively. Apeks also appeared at Intel Extreme Masters Sydney 2023, where they finished 9th-12th.

Talent-wise, Apeks and BIG look even, but we must also consider that BIG have looked terrible in the two CS2 matches they played in the ESL Challenger at DreamHack Winter 2023 European Qualifier. We’re taking Apeks to sweep.

FNATIC vs NINJAS IN PYJAMAS CS2 BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

Best Odds: Fnatic -151.52 at BetOnline | NiP +110 at BetOnline
When: October 26, 2023 | 18:00 CEST
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/RoobetEsports)

The opening round of the Roobet Cup 2023 group stage concludes with a Swedish derby between Ninjas in Pyjamas and Fnatic, who last clashed during BLAST.tv Paris Major 2023 Legends Stage in May, when Fnatic won 16-11.

Neither team is in good form. Since their upset win at BLAST Premier Fall Groups 2023, NiP have not come close to winning a single event, whereas Fnatic have not placed higher than the top eight across the last five tournaments.

Both teams are struggling; however, unlike Ninjas in Pyjamas, who’ve been out of action since early September, Fnatic have attended Intel Extreme Masters Sydney 2023 (9th-12th) and have some experience playing on CS2.

Lack of practice on the game’s newer version and ring rust are two reasons why fading NiP at the offered CS2 betting odds is the right play.

Fnatic to win
