We break down three of today's matches in ESL One: Road to Rio (CIS)
Gambit Youngsters +1.5 (1.59)
Spirit are big favorites, and they should win this game. However, this has been a very even matchup historically. It has gone to three maps on two occasions, and Gambit Youngsters were able to get to 13 rounds on both maps in the FLASHPOINT qualifiers.
HardLegion Gaming have lost their last two meetings with Syman, and they have been on a clear downtrend in recent months. Syman has only improved after adding mou and kreaz, and they should have a great a chance at starting the tournament with a win here against HardLegion.
Winstrike -1.5 (1.82)
Winstrike have been on a killing spree recently, taking down the likes of forZe, Secret, Espada and HellRaisers, and they are quite frankly a step above this Unique side in both skill and experience with players like El1an and HObbit on their side.
