ESB returns with another set of free Counter-Strike: Global Offensive betting predictions for the StarLadder CIS RMR 2021 tournament. Here are the best bets and top odds for games played on Wednesday, June 30.


100PINGGODS vs TEAM SPIRIT CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: 100PG +406 at BetOnline | Spirit -714.29 at BetOnline

100PingGods upset Virtus.pro (2-1) on Sunday in an extremely tight affair. Although it might be shocking seeing an underdog like 100PingGods win against one of the top-five teams in the world, it’s nothing unusual for a CIS regional tournament.

As mentioned before, regional CIS clashes are often much closer than expected, largely because most of the players have either played together at some point in their careers or have enough games between them to know where the other team’s weaknesses lie.

With that in mind, it doesn’t make much sense to have Spirit priced as low as they are, even though they’re clearly the better team. We’ll take the obvious value bet and side with 100PG to secure at least one map.

NEMIGA GAMING vs AKUMA CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: Nemiga -138.89 at BetOnline | Akuma +102 at BetOnline
When: June 30, 2021 at 17:00 MSK
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/team/starladder)


Akuma lost their StarLadder CIS RMR 2021 opener against forZe (0-2) with 4-16 on Overpass and 18-22 on Inferno. It was a solid effort from the Ukrainian lineup, but it was obvious that they were the weaker team on the day.

Neimga Gaming suffered the same fate in their tournament opener, with a 1-2 loss to Gambit Esports. Despite losing, Nemiga deserve a lot of praise for putting on a show against the strongest team in the world.

They took the series lead with 16-14 on Inferno and executed an incredible comeback on Vertigo, where Nemiga trailed 5-10 after the first half, yet still managed to force overtime. Nemiga ended up losing that map and completely fell apart on Dust II (3-16), albeit they still came only a couple of rounds short of upsetting the world no.1 team.

A single good performance doesn’t mean much, but Nemiga are clearly the better team here. We usually try to avoid betting on the favourites in these regional derbies, but the quality gap is big enough for us to make an exception.

K23 vs VIRTUS.PRO CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: K23 +274 at BetOnline | VP -416.67 at BetOnline
When: June 30, 2021 at 20:00 MSK
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/team/starladder)


Some of these betting odds seem to underestimate the underdogs, but we can’t complain. K23 are priced as high as +274 to defeat Virtus.pro, while you can back them at -107.53 with a map handicap.

That’s a generous offer considering Virtus.pro aren’t as good as the latest CS:GO betting odds would suggest. They might be ranked fifth in the world rankings, but the Russians traditionally struggle against weaker regional rivals.

Virtus.pro won this bout 2-0 back in May but have since lost to forZe, Entropiq, and Akuma. K23 with a map advantage is a no-brainer pick at this price.

FORZE vs NATUS VINCERE CS:GO BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: forZe +235 at BetOnline | NaVi -344.83 at BetOnline
When: June 30, 2021 at 20:00 MSK
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/team/starladder)


Natus Vincere are obviously better, but it’s not like they can’t lose. The offered odds seem a bit low given how volatile this tournament has been, so it does not make much sense to side with NaVi here.

ForZe will struggle to win since they lack the firepower of NaVi, but they have been playing well enough for us to believe that they can cause some damage. ForZe are 15-3 since the start of June, and while they haven’t faced any high-profile teams, it’s the momentum that counts.

ForZe should be capable of winning at least one map, but we don’t expect an upset victory. You can side with forZe at -123.46 with a map handicap, but there’s far more value with over 2.5 maps at +132.
