Here’s a breakdown into some of the teams to back from Tuesday’s CS:GO action from the ESEA Premier Division.
There isn’t much that separates these two teams. However, Illuminar have been around the professional CS:GO circuit for a lot longer. They are well established, with a more experienced roster. They also own the head-to-head matchup, having won six of their previous eight maps against Ago, including two wins at the WESG 2019 East Europe last year (16-2 in Nuke and 16-12 in Mirage). Ago aren’t pushovers, but they certainly will have to work incredibly hard to beat Illuminar.
Movistar Riders (1.55)
The sample size for Wisla Krakow is much smaller to assess their CS:GO development. This is a best-of-one encounter, so sure, Wisla Krakow have a chance. But do they have the confidence and ability to sustain that against a team much superior to themselves? Movistar Riders are ranked No. 32 in the world, while their opponents are positioned at No. 55 overall. Steel and Alex, who have been in solid offensive form, should lead them well in this game.
Unicorns of Love (2.32)
UoL have plenty of work to do to climb up the crowded CS:GO table, which includes many talented teams. UoL are definitely one of those teams. However, they will have to beat teams ranked higher to confirm their ascent. Jdc has led this UoL team rather well, with an average of 0.73 kills per round over the last few months. They are also coming into this match on the back of a morale-boosting 22-19 overtime win against Ago. The higher payout is rather attractive.
Demolition Crew’s professional CS:GO history is incredibly short. They have played just three matches! Of those, they have lost two games. That’s hardly enough to make a judgement about their class. That’s also a fair reason to back Hellriasers, who have been here and done this before. In terms of recent form, Hellraisers have won four of their previous five matches. In fact, odds of 1.64 seem rather high for such a match-up, which is why this is our featured bet of the day.
