ex-Winstrike vs. Sinners Betting Preview

Even though they changed the team's name, ex-Winstrike kept all of the players on the roster, and nothing else changed for them. They are on a three-game winning streak, but Sinners are in a great competitive form as they played over 140 maps in 2021, so we can expect an interesting and lengthy affair. It’s going to be a close encounter that could go either way, and that’s why I am going with Over 2.5 maps.

The Pick: Over 2.5 Maps (+108 @GGBET)
