The group stage at ESL One: Road to Rio continues! We take a look at some of today's matches in our daily betting preview.
Nemiga looked good in a 2–0 victory against forZe, but Winstrike have looked even better. The Winstrike team, which features players like El1an, HObbit and bondik, are currently on a six-game winstreak, with BO3 wins against forZe, Secret, ESPADA, HellRaisers, SKADA and Unique, and they should be in a good spot to win this match against Nemiga.
1st Map Winner incl. OT (2.10)
If both of these teams stick to their perma bans, Complexity should get to play Mirage in this matchup against NiP, a map that the Ninjas have really struggled with (20% winrate across 5 maps). While Complexity will certainly be underdogs on Overpass or Inferno, they will be in a good spot to steal Mirage. Taking Complexity on the handicap, betting the over, or taking a chance on the 1st Map Winner are three viable plays here.
Cloud9 +1.5 (1.46)
Cloud9 are on a three-game winning streak at the moment, with wins against Evil Geniuses, Gen.G and Orgless, and they are slight underdogs here against a 100 Thieves side that just changed their coach. Cloud9’s trio of floppy, oSee and Sonic looked great against Gen.G, and with Train and/or Inferno being likely maps here, Cloud9 should have a good chance at taking a map, at the very least.
