First day of play at the BLAST Spring Finals
Today the BLAST Spring Finals start, which will be played in the next five days and between eight different teams. With NAVI and Gambit the two CIS teams are the big favorites to win the tournament. However, G2 and NiP also showed great performances recently. FaZe will compete with olofmeister as a replacement for coldzera, but is the very big underdog.
Game 1: Gambit vs. Evil Geniuses
Gambit won the IEM Summer 2021 only the day before yesterday in a more than clear final against OG. Despite the solid performance of Evil Geniuses in the tournament, the CIS team is the clear favorite on the first match day. The odds between Gambit and Evil Geniuses are anything but even. The last direct duel between the two teams was only a few days ago and went solidly to Gambit after two maps.
Game 2: NiP vs. Complexity
In the match between NiP and Complexity, the odds don't make a clear favorite. Both teams could not fully convince at the IEM Summer, but showed some solid performances. As bans Vertigo and Ancient are likely. NiP couldn't really convince on Nuke the last weeks. It is quite possible that Complexity will select the map as a pick. The spectators can expect an exciting match between two teams that are trying to catch up with the world's best.
