Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) Predictions, Tips & Live Stream: Tuesday, May 12

Event: ESL One: Road to Rio – Europe
Match: Team Vitality vs. GODSENT
Last 5 matches: LWWLW vs. WWLWL
Scheduled for: May 12th, 16:30 CET
Betting prediction: Vitality will win
Potential profit: 40%

Vitality is currently ranked 9th and in the Group Stage of this tournament it finished 3rd in Group A, with 4 wins and 3 losses. The team had a slow start, winning just 1 match in the first 4. But then it started to recover and ended up well. Along the way, Vitality defeated Complexity, Dignitas, Fnatic and Heretics. The teams that defeated them were Astralis, NiP and ENCE. Overall, this was a very difficult group to get out of. Vitality’s opponent in this match, GODSENT, finished 4th in its group with 4 wins and 3 losses. But this was arguably a much weaker group to play in and GODSENT only had one important victory: against mousesports. However, karrigan had a terrible tournament, so I don’t think that GODSENT’s strength can be assessed by looking at this result alone. Overall, I view Vitality as a much stronger competitor in this match.

Event: ESL One: Road to Rio – Europe
Match: Team Heretics vs. North
Last 5 matches: LWWWL vs. WLWWW
Scheduled for: May 12th, 20:00 CET
Betting prediction: North will win
Potential profit: 115%

Both teams had an unusually good tournament. Heretics finished 4th in Group A with 3 wins and 4 losses, while North finished 3rd in Group B with 4 wins and 3 losses. Overall, Heretics is ranked 30th while North is ranked 25th. The reason why I believe North will win this match has to do with the team’s victories over some of the best competitors in the world: G2 and mousesports. By contrast, Heretics only managed to beat underdogs in their group. Every big team defeated them: fnatic (2 – 1), Astralis (2 – 0), NiP (2 – 1), and Vitality (2 – 0). No doubt, this will be a close match, but North should win in the end. The most likely score here is 1 – 2 in their favor.

Event: ESL One: Road to Rio – Europe
Match: Fnatic vs. Movistar Riders
Last 5 matches: LWLWL vs. WWWLW
Scheduled for: May 12th, 16:30 CET
Betting prediction: Fnatic will win.
Potential profit: 30%

This matchup is absolutely ridiculous and was only made possible by Fnatic’s disastrous performance during the Group Stage. Riders is ranked 40th while Fnatic is ranked 2nd. Needless to say, this should be an easy victory for the Swedes, who are light years ahead of their opponents in skill, experience, confidence and everything else. Even though Fnatic messed up at this tournament and finished 6th with 3 wins and 4 losses, they weren’t all that far away from qualifying and certainly haven’t forgotten how CS:GO is played.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) Predictions, Tips & Live Stream: Wednesday, May 13

Event: ESL One: Road to Rio – Europe
Match: Astralis vs. G2 Esports
Last 5 matches: WWWWW vs. WWLWL
Scheduled for: May 13th, 16:30 CET
Betting prediction: Astralis will win
Potential profit: 30%

Astralis is back to being ranked the number 1 team in CS:GO. Truth be told, they always were a top 4 team in the last 2 years, even when they weren’t doing well in tournaments. But now it seems that the Danes are back to dominating the game, at least in the absence of Na’Vi, FURA, and a few others. Astralis only lost one match in Group A, against Fnatic. G2 didn’t do so well in Group B, even though they finished 2nd. They lost 3 matches in total and are now ranked 6th globally. This match heavily favors Astralis and it’s going to be very difficult for the French to defeat the Danish machine.

Event: ESL One: Road to Rio – Europe
Match: Ninjas in Pyjamas vs. FaZe Clan
Last 5 matches: WLWWW vs. WWWWW
Scheduled for: May 13th, 22:00 CET
Betting prediction: FaZe Clan will win
Potential profit: 65%

This was one of the best performances we’ve seen from NiP and FaZe Clan at a tournament, at least in recent years. The Swedes (NiP) finished the Group Stage with 6 wins and 1 loss while FaZe got 7 consecutive victories. Spectacular results on both sides, but I still believe that FaZe is stronger. Everyone on the team is playing at a very high level and you can see the synergy between the players in every single game. The match will likely be close and I do expect it to require 3 maps to finish. But FaZe should win in the end.

Event: ESL One: Road to Rio – CIS
Match: Virtus.pro vs. Nemiga Gaming
Last 5 matches: LLWLW vs. LLWLW
Scheduled for: May 13th, 13:00 CET
Betting prediction: Virtus.pro will win
Potential profit: 30%

Virtus.pro is currently ranked 22nd while Nemiga is ranked 39th. Both the skill and the results difference between these two teams is enormous, so I don’t expect Nemiga to succeed in this match. In the Group Stage of this tournament, VP finished 2nd in Group B with 3 wins and 2 losses. The key thing here is that they managed to beat Na’Vi, which was ranked 1st (globally) at the time. Nemiga got a similar score in Group A (3 W – 2 L) but its wins were less impressive. When you put everything in balance, VP is heavily favored to win this dispute.
