Complexity vs. Sprout Betting Preview
Complexity is desperate to return to the top 10 in the CS:GO rankings, and they can do that only with a high placement at this tournament. I don’t know about their chances at the tournament as there are a lot of strong and better-ranked teams, but I am pretty sure they will not have any trouble to defeat Sprout. Sprout is focused on securing a ticket for the ESL Pro League S13, which they can get by winning the ESEA MDL Season 35 Europe, so I don’t think this tournament is their priority.
The Pick: Complexity to win (-217 @PINNACLE)
