BIG - Latest performance & results
BIG missed the opportunity to qualify directly after two match days and has to play against Astralis for elimination. The German top team would have loved to avoid this clash against the Danes. In the duel with probably the best team in the world at the moment, tabseN and Co. are fighting for qualification to the BLAST Spring Finals.
In the duel with NiP the team had a hard time and didn't manage to win the final rounds as usual. After a big lead on Overpass and all in all clear conditions the team lost in the overtime and finally had to admit defeat on Mirage due to a weak CT-half.
The usually so solid performing German top team had problems to win the last rounds on the first map and especially k1to, who was so strong yesterday, was rather weak today. In the duel between BIG and Astralis, the odds clearly give the German team the underdog role. However, the signs are not quite so clear and the BIG Clan is an absolute top team.
Astralis - Latest performance & results
After a more than surprising and especially disappointing defeat against NiP on the first matchday, Astralis went into the lower-bracket. In the duel of the losers they met Aleksib and OG. A clear success on the part of the Danes was expected, but all in all the team was especially on Dust2 only with a lot of luck still in the game and could finally win in overtime.
On the decider Inferno, Astralis performed solidly in the end and won the clash 2:0, but so far we can not talk about the solid Astralis we have seen especially in 2019. After the defeat against NiP on the first matchday, the success against OG was also anything but clear.
In the duel with BIG, the betting odds clearly favor Astralis. Both teams have not been able to fully convince so far and are in an awkward situation. The pressure will certainly play a significant role in this clash.
BIG vs. Astralis - Map-Veto prediction
The bans are Mirage and Train. Between BIG and Astralis, the tip for the maps is Dust2 and Inferno. Vertigo would be a good possibility as a decider.
BIG vs. Astralis - Prediction
In this matchup, the spectators can expect an extremely exciting game between two top teams, which will decide about the promotion. Between BIG and Astralis, the betting odds are on the German underdog. Even if Astralis go into this duel as favorites, the odds in this duel are disproportionately low. The Danes have been lacking consistency for quite some time. As a bet, we see 5 units as appropriate.
