BIG vs. GODSENT, Preview & Prediction - Free 9/16 CS:GO

BIG is currently among the top 4 teams that would go to the playoffs, but with a 3-2 record, they still didn’t secure a spot in the playoffs, so the victory here is imperative for them. GODSENT, on the other hand, has nothing to play for after losing four of five games at this tournament. BIG is a massive favorite in this Best of 3 tilt.

BIG Team Stats and Latest Results

BIG won the DreamHack Open Summer 2020 Europe and $35,000 after defeating Heroic 2-0 in the Grand final but suffered a quick elimination out of the ESL One Cologne 2020 Europe with a pair of losses to Sprout and NiP. The German side opened the ESL Pro League Season 12 Europe with wins over AGO and OG before losing to Natus Vincere and Heroic. Still, they managed to bounce back and avoid the third consecutive defeat with a comeback victory over G2 in the previous round. BIG won 12 of the last 17 matches.

Over the course of the past three months, BIG dominated on Dust2 (85.7%), Overpass (80.0%), and Mirage (75.0%), while their “weakest” displays came on Vertigo (50.0%). The current lineup consists of tabseN (1.11 rating), tiziaN (1.00), syrsoN (1.16), XANTARES (1.16), and k1to (1.01). They are playing together since June 2020 and appeared on 56 maps, with a record of 39 wins and 17 losses.

GODSENT Team Stats and Latest Results

It looks like GODSENT is not interested in the ESL Pro League Season 12 Europe because their results on other tournaments are much better. For instance, GODSENT won the LOOT.BET Season 7 and is playing well on the Nine to Five 4, where they reached the semi-finals. However, GODSENT started with two defeats at this tournament, and suffered two more losses to OG and Heroic, after a lone win over ENCE. They won nine of the previous 15 games.

In the last three months, GODSENT displayed fine performances on Vertigo (75.0%) and Overpass (62.5%), but was without a win on Mirage, and was below average on Dust2 (40.0%). GODSENT plays with the current lineup since June 2020, and they have a record of 23 wins and 20 losses on 43 maps. The team members are zehN (1.12), STYKO (1.10), kRYSTAL (0.83), Maden (1.09), and Farlig (1.08).

BIG vs. GODSENT H2H Record

These rivals have faced twice so far, and BIG won both matches without dropping a single map in the process. The most recent H2H clash was at the cs_summit 6 Europe, and BIG was better on Dust2 and Overpass.

BIG vs. GODSENT Betting Preview

I am not backing BIG here because they won both H2H matches. I am backing them because they need this victory way more than GODSENT, who is focused on winning the Nine to Five 4 tournament instead. I know the odds are not very attractive, but you can back it freely as a part of your parlay.
