Gen.G vs. 100 Thieves, Preview & Prediction - Free 9/17 CS:GO Betting Picks
Gen.G and 100 Thieves will face each other in Group stage Best of 3 at the ESL Pro League Season 12 North America (Online) tournament. After three rounds played, both teams have one win and two losses, but 100 Thieves have a better round difference (+9 vs. -13). There are four rounds left until the end of the group stage, and both teams have a chance to qualify for the playoffs. This will be their fifth duel and the result in the tide.
Gen.G won three of the last eight matches and has a win rate of 41.7% in the past three months. During that time, Gen.G first pick was Train 0.0%, but they have four consecutive defeats on that map. Their first ban is Overpass, and they have the best score on Mirage and Nuke (75.0% each). The Canadian player, Damian “daps” Steele, announced that he will leave the squad but will stay with the team until they find a replacement.
100 Thieves won only two of their last eight matches and have a win rate of 40.0% in the past three months. During that period, they were invincible on Dust2 and Train; Vertigo is their first pick, and Overpass is their first ban. They have the worst score on Mirage 33.3% and Nuke 25.0%. The Australians will play in the next lineup: “jks”, “AZR”, “jkaem”, “Gratisfaction”, and “Liaz”.
Pick: Total map over 2.5 (124 @PINNACLE)
100 Thieves is the bookmaker favorite, but Gen.G is a better-ranked team (#17 vs. #20). Their last duel was played on three maps, and each previous one was very close. Both teams have a chance to advance to the playoffs, and I believe that this match will be tight as well. I suggest a total map over 2.5, and who wants a safer but smaller odds can bet on the first map over 15.5.
