Dignitas vs. Tricked Betting Preview

Even though the gap between these rivals is just two places in the CS:GO rankings, the bookmakers are favoring Dignitas in this match. The odds are relatively low, so I am going to avoid betting on the Swedish team, although I am leaning toward them. However, we cannot ignore Tricked’s excellent form, and that’s why we should avoid betting on Dignitas. Go with Over 2.5 maps instead.

The Pick: Over 2.5 Maps (+123 @GGBET)
