Free CS:GO Betting Picks 5/31 - ESL Mistrzostwa Polski - Spring 2020 Grand Final - AGO vs. AVEZ Preview & Prediction
The Grand Final is set for the ESL Mistrzostwa Polski - Spring 2020 and it should be a great matchup. We will see a battle of two Polish teams as AGO is set to do battle with AVEZ, and stakes are high. The winner of this match will take home $6,242.15 USD and they will also grab a big to the ESEA Season 34 Climber Cup as well as to the ESL Pro European Championship 2020. The loser of this battle won't leave empty-handed either as they will still take home a payday of $3,121.07 USD.
AGO enters this contest ranking 71st in the HLTV world CS:GO rankings. The team was very dominant during the Regular Season portion of the ESL Mistrzostwa Polski - Spring 2020 tournament. They held a record of 11-3 during this period and finished 2nd in the standings. They have a ton of momentum coming in as they have won ten straight matches.
One thing that hinders AGO is their limited map pool in terms of success. Vertigo is the only map over the past three months that they have been overly dominant on. On Vertigo, they have a record of 3-1 during this time period. Their next best map is Inferno or Dust2, and they have a win rate of only around 56% on these maps. The team is led by mhL, and he will be relied on heavily. Over the past three months, he has averaged 0.76 kills per round while only dying 0.63 times per round during this time and he will need to keep this up for AGO to win.
The 64th ranked team in the world AVEZ had a rocky road during the Regular Season portion of this event but they are riding high right now. During the Regular Season, they held an average 7-7 record, finishing 5th in the standings. However, they have won both their previous serieses in the Playoffs though by a score of 2-1 on their way to the Grand Final.
The map selection process won't necessarily be a deciding factor for AVEZ. Over the past three months, the only map that they have a win rate of over 50% on is Mirage, and this is only because they have only played one round there. The statistical team leaders are Markos and KEi, and they are going to have to have some of their best games. KEi averaged 0.77 kills per round over the last three months, but had 0.73 deaths per round to negate it. Markos averaged 0.67 kills per round but died 0.62 times a round during this same time period.
Pick: Over 2.5 Maps (-110 @ Bovada)
Neither of these teams have much of a clear advantage in any areas. AGO did dominate the Regular Season leg of this event, but they have times where they can struggle. AVEZ is riding some momentum after winning both their quarterfinal and semifinal matches by a score of 2-1. I believe that AVEZ is a good enough team to at least win one match, and I also believe that AGO isn't quite good enough to sweep this contest. Give me the over as I fully expect this match to take three maps to decide a winner.
