CS:GO Daily Betting Tips – Monday
BLAST Premier Showdown Spring 2020
MATCH: MAD Lions vs Ninjas in Pyjamas
Date: Monday, June 15th @ 12:30 CEST
MAD Lions were too close to their objective, however, they did not achieve it. They showed the best result among ten participants of the tournament in the group stage. They defeated Fnatic with a score of 16-10 and also fought Virtus.pro and Dignitas with results of 16-7 and 16-5, respectively.
Such success allowed the team to proceed right to the final where it faced the highly-prepared and warmed-up ENCE who had managed to gain momentum before the match. On Mirage, the match was over only in the second series of overtime rounds. Unfortunately for the Danes, one of the first two invites was taken by another participant in the past final, ENCE. Now, MAD Lions have to play in Play-In.
NiP are right in the same situation as MAD Lions. The team also demonstrated the best result in its group, having beaten Astralis and sAw and made a draw with Vitality and ENCE. This allowed the team to go to the final of the playoff stage, however, the fight with Vitality was lost for them.
The French lost one map but achieved victory after all and earned an invite to the European finals where $500,000 will be up for grabs. NiP, just like MAD Lions, lost the final and now, they will fight the Danes in the final match of Play-In. The winner will earn $25,000 and the valuable reward in the form of the last invite to European Finals. A losing participant will place 4th in the standings and earn $20,000 and leave without an invitation.
MAD Lions have looked good recently, but they absolutely crumbled under the pressure of NaVi. NiP also have looked really good recently but against teams like Astralis, Vitality, and FaZe. I can see both teams taking their own map picks (i think MAD Lions picks Nuke and NiP goes Overpass/Vertigo). NiP are playing really well, and I think their new IGL – hampus is being a great fit in their team for now. In their last match they lost to the very in form Vitality with a score of 1-2.
In this match we may see 3 maps but in the end, I think NiP is much more experienced team and I believe they will win this match.
