TEAM SECRET vs NEMIGA HELLCASE CUP #8 BETTING PREVIEW

Team Secret and Nemiga will duke it out in the opening Group C fixture at the eighth iteration of the Hellcase Cup, which features 20 European CS:GO teams and a guaranteed US $10,000 prize pool.

Nemiga will hope their third Hellcase Cup appearance is more successful than their previous two, as they finished 13th-16th at the sixth edition and 17th-18th at the seventh. The most recent tournament took place in October 2018, however, and a lot has changed since.

Anton “BoX” Burko and his crew enter the tournament following an underwhelming ninth-12th finish at LOOT.BET/CS Season 6, but things are not as grim as they may seem. Nemiga hold an impressive 8-2 record in their last 10 fixtures, consisting of wins against pro100, HellRaisers, Mortal Kombat, KOVA, Nordavind, Endpoint, Syman and SKADE.

Team Secret head into the Hellcase Cup as one of the hottest teams in CS:GO esports. Although they’re still miles from being regarded as one of the elite rosters, they have been rapidly improving since they benched Rigon “rigoN” Gashi in favour of ex-Tricked Esports in-game leader Martin “PERCY” Wessel in April.

Since Secret acquired the Danish strategist, they have produced a handful of solid tournament placements. At the start of May, the European squad made it to the quarter-finals of LOOT.BET/CS Season 6, followed by a ninth-12th finish at BLAST Rising, a runner-up at #HomeSweetHome: Week 4, and another quarter-final appearance at #HomeSweetHome: Week 5.

PERCY and his men are yet to hoist any trophies this year, but they have been somewhat unfortunate to face strong opponents early into many of their competitive endeavours. As such, it’s hard to criticise this emerging team too much for their lack of accolades in 2020.

On May 13, Filip “tudsoN” Tudev stepped down from Team Secret’s active roster. He wants to return to his more natural position as AWPer, but that role is currently occupied by Guy “anarkez” Trachtman.

It is still unclear who Team Secret will use to replace tudsoN. During HomeSweetHome #5 they fielded Žygimantas “nukkye” Chmieliauskas and since the Lithuanian pro does not have any other obligations to attend to, he is likely to step in at the Hellcase Cup as well.

TEAM SECRET vs NEMIGA HELLCASE CUP #8 BETTING PREDICTIONS

These two last met in November 2019 at LOOT.BET/CS Season 5, where Team Secret won 2-0. That result doesn’t count for much here, as both sides have made a handful of roster changes since.

In a perfect world, Nemiga would win here, but the online format is far from perfect. On Thursday, Nemiga lost to 1win and struggled against SKADE, which was not something we expected to see. Team Secret are not immune to those kinds of results either, so it’s a hard one to pick.

If the match odds are any indicator, this clash should go down to the wire. BetOnline is paying +113 for over 2.5 maps played, so that’s where your money should go.
