We break down two of today's matches in LOOT Season 6 and BLAST Rising.
Over 2.5 maps (1.98)
BIG are coming off a close loss to Complexity, but they have been on a bit of tear recently in online matches, with eight straight wins before their loss to Complexity. Winstrike aren’t a bad team at all, and it is somewhat interesting that they like to play Vertigo, which has been BIG’s worst map statistically - and with BIG’s perma-ban, Train, being a solid map for Winstrike, it seems very likely that Winstrike will get to pick it if they so want to. Sadly, it appears that LOOT isn’t using HLTV’s rankings to determine who picks the first map, otherwise betting Winstrike to win the first map at 2.28 would be a solid play. There are many ways you could go about this one, you could take Winstrike on the handicap, BIG on the moneyline or take the over.
Endpoint have looked super solid so far, and with how the standings look at the moment, Tricked, who are sitting on an 0–3 record, might already be out of playoff contention when this match will be played. So if you like Endpoint in this match, it might be worth locking it in early.
