SKADE Preview

The Bulgarian squad SKADE enters this bout ranking 49th in the HLTV world CS:GO rankings. A key selling point for the team is the fact that they don't have any maps in which they are just absolutely horrible on. Overpass has been SKADE's top map over the past three months as they have a 6-3 record there during this period. Rainwalker and dennyslaw are the team's leaders, and they will once again most likely be the firepower behind the team. The duo have averaged 1.49 kills per round with only 1.31 deaths per round over the past three months.

Sinners Esports Preview

The Czech Republic-based team Sinners Esports is somewhat outmatched in this contest. They come in ranking 99th in the HLTV world CS:GO rankings, and they have a lot of work to do. Mirage is considered Sinners Esports's best map, although they have shown promise on the map Nuke also. NEOFRAG and SHOCK are the team's leaders over the past three months statistically, and they must play to their full potential if their team has any chance of pulling off a victory in this battle.

Pick: SKADE Spread/Handicap -1.5 Maps (+120 @ Bovada)

Give me the heavy favorite with the spread in this contest. SKADE is ranked 50th places higher in the HLTV world CS:GO rankings, and they are the clear-cut better team in this battle. There isn't a ton to become excited about going on with Sinners Esports, and I don't expect them to be much of a challenge here. Rainwalker and dennyslaw will dominate their opponent en route to ending this game early with a 2-0 victory.
