Counter Strike Global Offensive: ESL One Cologne 2018 Day 3

Today is day three of the ESL One Cologne 2018 Counter Strike Major. Last years winners, SK Gaming will be represented under a new name, MiBR (Made In Brazil). The red hot favourites to win the event are without a doubt – Astralis, and, the odds reflect this. With some questionable sides at this event, lets break down the day of games.

BIG v Renegades

Very unlikely match up here based of results, but, here we are. BIG outperformed in their opening game, and, fell right back into a position that everyone expected, when they got beaten by Fnatic. Renegades, have split their results as well, and, are coming in on the back of an easy 2-0 win over B.O.O.T[d]s. This one is a very even match, and the odds reflect this. If you were to go on a player for player match up however, Renegades hold the edge, with only Smooya having an edge over Nifty. Ustillo, jks, Jkaem and Azr all stepped up against B.O..O.T[d]s, if they are to replicate that type of performance, they could very well beat BIG 2-0. Home sides always play better at home however, and they could easily get at least one map in this contest. Renegades to win 2-1 is at big money – but, the smarter bet here would be to take Renegades to win.

Expected map selections
BIG select – Cache
Renegades select – Train
Left over – Inferno

Best Bet – Renegades ML @ $1.85/-118 on Unibet

MiBR v North

After getting the big upset and elimination Team Liquid, North are back on deck here against MiBR who got handled 2-0 by FaZe Clan yesterday. This is a very open match considering how poor MiBR have been performing, whether named MiBR or SK Gaming. While North are a beatable opponent, it is hard to trust MiBR to get the job done – this is a great H2H match to just leave alone, there is no edge for either side and, irrespective of map rotation, could just go either way.

No Best Bet

Astralis v G2 eSports

Astralis, are our pick to win this entire tournament, and, winning their group here against G2, will push them closer to achieving that goal. With that said, there could be a chance that Astralis throw this to try and get G2 closer to the final, as they know that they can beat the French side pretty comfortably if they want to. Xypx9, Device, Dupreeh, Magisk and gla1ve are the strongest unit right now in Counter Strike, and, a big win here will just stamp their authority over the rest of the league.

Expected map selections
G2 eSports select – Dust 2
Astralis select – Inferno
Left over – Train

Best Bet – Astralis -4.5 round handicap Map 2 @ $1.72/-139 on Unibet

ENCE v Natus Vincere

A real wildcard here, ENCE, expected by many to be one of the first eliminated, have knocked out one of the hopefuls in Mousesports yesterday and seem to be going from strength to strength. Unfortunately for ENCE, the worlds best player is on the Na’Vi roster, and he turned up big yesterday during Na’Vi’s 2-0 route of Cloud 9. Natus Vincere do at times depend on the individual brilliance of S1mple, and, he is that type of ace up the sleeve that can turn a game on its head in a split second. For ENCE, they really need to combined efforts from Aerial and Aleksib to continue, if they are to stand a realistic chance against the Ukrainians, the Finland based outfit will need to start strong.

Expected map selections
ENCE select – Dust 2
Natus Vincere select – Mirage
Left over – Train

Best Bet – Natus Vincere to win 2-0 @ $2.25/+125 on Unibet

FaZe Clan v Fnatic

Old rivals go to war once again here with FaZe Clan looking to be in better shape. Fnatic really got through due to the individual brilliance of JW yesterday, just awping down anything that moved. Today, old rivals JW and Guardian will be the main battle here, whichever one can assert dominance on awp control, will be able to win the game for their side. The support play of Niko and Cromen will need to win the duels with Krimz and Flusha – something easier said than done – but, FaZe are just in a good spot right now, despite not having Olofmeister with them.

Expected map selections
Fnatic select – Mirage
FaZe Clan select – Nuke
Left over – Inferno

Best Bet – FaZe Clan to win 2-0 @ $2.37/+137 on Unibet

Multi of the day
Astralis to win 2-0

Natus Vincere ML
