Team Secret Preview

The mixed-bag European roster of Team Secret enters this bout ranking 46th in the HLTV world CS:GO rankings. Over the past three months, Mirage (which seems to be a favorite of many teams) has been their best map statistically as they have a 10-3 record there during this period. Something to keep an eye on is that Team Secret has yet to reveal who will be their fifth player although it may not matter. Their roster of PERCY, anarkez, juanflatroo and sinnopsyy are good enough to carry whoever may be the fifth player on the team.

Nemiga Gaming Preview

Much like their counterparts, Nemiga Gaming features a roster of players from three different countries. They come into this match ranking 32nd in the HLTV world CS:GO rankings. Not many teams can go up against Nemiga Gaming on the maps Mirage or Overpass. On Mirage, they hold a 7-1 record in the past three months and their record on Overpass is 6-2 during this same time. Jyo and lollipop21K are the team's leaders, and they will have to have a great game if they intend to be competitive in this battle with Team Secret.

Pick: Team Secret ML (+130 @ Bovada)

I am playing Team Secret as more of a value play, and I don't suggest loading up fully on this wager until the fifth player on their roster is revealed. However, with the information available to us right now, I'm willing to take a stab at +130 odds. Team Secret's four known players are all better than average and they could potentially carry the team regardless of who fills the team. Jyo and lollipop21K are the team leaders for Nemiga Gaming, and their entire team can be really spotty. I'm only placing one unit on this contest, but I am riding with Team Secret.
