NiP takes on ENCE in a do-or-die matchup with a spot in the playoffs up for grabs. We break down that match and more in today's Daily Betting Tips.
Over 2.5 Maps (1.90)
NiP are coming off yet another rough loss to Natus Vincere, and they have now been swept in their first two matches with hampus. It is do-or-die time for NiP, as a win over ENCE would give them a spot in the playoffs due to the better head-to-head record. Train and Overpass have been the maps in the last two meetings between these teams, with Dust2 as a decider. Interestingly, this map veto favors NiP quite a bit overall, with both Inferno and Overpass being strong maps for them. While ENCE deserve to be favorites due to NiP’s current form, the odds are too short to really consider them. Both the over and NiP as a longshot play are viable bets, in my opinion.
Over 2.5 Maps (1.95)
These teams have faced off against each other six times in BO3s, and all but one of these games went to a decider. The over is a very solid bet here, especially with the current odds on offer.
Over 2.5 maps (1.86)
Both of these teams have already secured a spot in the playoffs, but the winner of this match will get to face MiBR instead of Liquid. The last two BO3s between these two sides have gone to a decider, and with both teams having something to play for, it would not be surprising to see history repeat itself.
