ENCE are priced as heavy favourites for their opening 2022 Roobet Cup group stage match against Eternal Fire, and that’s hardly surprising. Not only are ENCE one of the world’s top three CS:GO teams, but we must also acknowledge that Eternal Fire not exactly a top-tier squad.

The Turkish roster can have their moments, and they had taken some big scalps in the past, but there’s a good reason why they’re ranked 25th on the global CS:GO ladder. One thing going for Eternal Fire is their strong map record on Inferno (67%) and Overpass (85%), but that’s hardly enough for us to believe Eternal Fire will be competitive.

They’ve struggled against much weaker teams over the last month, including ex-MAD Lions (0-2 and 1-2) and Team Finest. Meanwhile, ENCE’s only recent defeats came against Team Vitality, OG, Cloud9, and Natus Vincere. At the offered CS:GO betting odds, ENCE to win 2-0 is an easy choice.

ENCE -1.5 maps



Best Odds: Outsiders +308 at BetOnline | forZe -454.55 at BetOnline

Outsiders have made very impactful roster changes in May, replacing their star players Mareks “YEKINDAR” Gaļinskis and Timur “buster” Tulepov with David “n0rb3r7” Daniyelyan and Pyotr “fame” Bolyshev. Outsiders have downgraded their roster with the changes, but they’re not necessarily weak.

On the contrary, Outsiders looked good in their first two fixtures with the new players, beating Illuminar Gaming and Falcons Esports without dropping more than ten rounds across the four maps. So clearly, Outsiders are still a quality team.

ForZe have not been active on the transfer market since November 2021, which explains why they haven’t improved much over the last 10 months. They’re currently ranked 23rd in the world, which perfectly illustrates that forZe are a good mid-tier team but not contenders for a big title.

Esports betting sites offer the same price on forZe and Outsiders, which underestimates Outsiders a bit. They might look weaker on paper and have yet to be properly tested, but there is no reason to believe that forZe are equally as strong.

Outsiders to win



Best Odds: Imperial +308 at BetOnline | MOUZ -454.55 at BetOnline

Imperial had their moment at the recent Major, where they came one victory short of qualifying for the Champions Stage. They had only beaten Bad News Eagles (2-0) and the struggling Cloud9 (2-1), but Imperial lost only against BIG, G2, and Copenhagen Flames.

Since then, the Brazilian lineup have not achieved much. They failed to make it through the DreamHack Valencia open qualifiers; they finished last at IEM Dallas at the end of May and couldn’t make it through the group stage at Pinnacle Cup Championship a couple of weeks back. So perhaps the honeymoon phase has ended, but whatever is the case, Imperial don’t look too dangerous.

It’s been a while since we could last consider MOUZ a top-tier team, but the international roster has achieved some success. First, they qualified for IEM Dallas, where they got eliminated by vastly superior ENCE and Vitality, and then made the finals of Global Esports Tour Dubai 2022 over a week back, only to get reverse-swept by Ninjas in Pyjamas.

MOUZ should win, but Imperial are tough to beat if they can get their wheels spinning early, and we’re not confident enough in MOUZ’s ability to shut down Gabriel “FalleN” Toledo and his crew. So expect a fairly close affair, with at least 28 rounds per map.
