In their first official match since Intel Extreme Masters Cologne, Outsiders will take on BIG in the opening Group B match at ESL Pro League Season 16. It will mark the first meeting between these two teams since July 5, when Outsiders won 2-0, yet the latest CS:GO odds suggest this is BIG’s game to lose.

That makes sense when, unlike Outsiders, BIG have been active since IEM Cologne, but we must also acknowledge that BIG have played just four matches in August and lost all but one (16-6 against Evil Geniuses). So even though Outsiders might be a bit out of shape, it’s not like BIG have shown much over the last couple of weeks.

This looks like a coin-flip match with no clear winner, so we will gladly side with the Outsiders at plus money.

G2 Esports made a bold roster change in August when they signed Justin “jks” Savage and Rasmus “HooXi” Nielsen. And even though the new-look roster looks like it has potential, we’ve yet to see G2 perform up to expectations.

Last week, G2 attended BLAST Premier Fall Groups 2022 and performed well enough to finish in fourth-sixth place. Still, they lost both of their group stage matches against Team Liquid and NaVi before beating BIG (2-0), losing to Team Vitality (1-2) and then getting their revenge in the Last Chance match (2-1).

G2 Esports have enough talent to compete with the top teams, but they clearly need a bit more time to gel. And this adjusting period could leave G2 vulnerable to upsets.

Like G2, MiBR were active on the transfer market in August, signing Henrique “HEN1” Teles to improve the squad’s firepower. Since then, the Brazilian squad has attended the first South American Road to Major event and qualified for the American RMR with a second-place finish, which is a solid result.

MiBR are still far from a tier-one team, but they have been playing better with HEN1 and should be able to show some resistance against the shaky G2. At evens, MiBR to win a map is a solid choice, but we prefer MiBR with a +9.5 round handicap.
