Gambit - Latest performance & results
Gambit is the big surprise of the new year. After becoming the organization's first team at the end of last year, Gambit quickly achieved their first Tier 2 successes and got their second chance to participate in an S-Tier event after DreamHack Masters Winter at IEM Katowice 2021. The team won this one in the final match with Virtus.Pro and surprised the whole scene.
However, Gambit is not a one-time surprise. At the ESL Pro League, the team was able to immediately continue their great performance and was only defeated in the final match with Heroic. In the new year, Gambit not only secured its first big successes, but also around USD 500,000 in prize money. In the duel between Gambit and FURIA, the odds clearly favor the team.
FURIA - Latest performance & results
FURIA doesn't need to fear defeat in the new year either. After the first tournaments went solidly with 5-8th places, the Brazilians secured 3-4th place at the ESL Pro League and only had to admit defeat to Heroic in the semifinals. A great success for the team, who switched the team language to English only a few weeks ago and signed junior as a replacement for the departed HEN1.
In the first game with mibr, the team won 2-0, but the maps were anything but clear. On Mirage and Vertigo, the two Brazilian teams fought a duel on equal terms. In the duel with Gambit, FURIA is the relatively clear underdog in view of the odds.
Gambit vs. FURIA - Map-Veto prediction
The bans are on Nuke and Dust2. Between Gambit and FURIA, the tip regarding the maps is on Overpass and Mirage. As a decider, Inferno would be conceivable. While FURIA likes to pick Vertigo, this seems unlikely against Gambit. The Russian young stars are currently one of the strongest teams on this map.
Gambit vs. FURIA - Prediction
Between Gambit and FURIA the tip is for a 2:0 of the Russian favorite. The odds are not very tempting, but Gambit's last performances have been enormously strong. FURIA would have to have an absolutely perfect day to come away victorious. As a stake we see 5 units at odds in the amount of 2.10.
