Virtus.Pro - Latest performance & results
The CIS region's top team went from strength to strength after signing YEKINDAR, and by the end of 2020 had risen to the absolute top of the world. The victories at Flashpoint Season 2 and cs_summit 7 were not really big tournament successes, but still enormous, especially considering the prize money. The performance in the last big tournament, the IEM Katowice 2021, was also very satisfying with a second place.
The first matchday against Endpoint was a 2:0 win at the ESL Pro League, but not as clear as expected. The clear underdog showed relatively solid performances against Virtus.Pro on both maps and especially SANJI and qikert had a rather weak day individually. Between Virtus.Pro and Evil Geniuses, the odds still favor the CIS team very clearly.
Evil Geniuses - Latest performance & results
Evil Geniuses decided to make a lineup change earlier this year. Since the team was signed from NRG in 2019, the ejection of Ethan was the first personnel change. Former Complexity player oBo was brought into the team as a replacement. The ESL Pro League marks the first time the young American is playing under his new organization. Between Virtus.Pro and Evil Geniuses, the lineup around IGL stanislaw is the clear underdog given the odds.
However, the first matchday at the ESL Pro League went extremely well for Evil Geniuses. In the debut match of oBo, the team defeated Astralis on three maps relatively clearly and showed a great performance. Vertigo is currently still a weakness in the map pool, but the performances on Nuke and especially Inferno were promising.
Virtus.Pro vs. Evil Geniuses - Map-Veto prediction
As bans, Nuke and Dust2 are likely. Between Virtus.Pro and Evil Geniuses, the pick for maps is Vertigo and possibly Train. It will be interesting to see what EG decides to pick.
Virtus.Pro vs. Evil Geniuses - Prediction
Even though the map veto may favor Virtus.Pro in this duel, the odds do not reflect the good performance of EG. Between Virtus.Pro and Evil Geniuses, we put our bet on the underdog. As a stake, we consider 5 units at odds of 2.75 to be appropriate.
