ESL Pro League Season 14 – Group B Betting Analaysis

G2 Esports Vs Sinners Esports

  • When: Saturday, August 21st – 13:30 CEST

G2 Esports enter ESL Pro League Season 14 as one of the strongest teams in the world and the third betting favorites on the outright betting markets. The French-Balkan roster have recently made it to the finals of IEM Cologne, where they got swept (0-3) by the current no.1 Natus Vincere, however, that one loss alone doesn’t take away from the success G2 Esports have had over the year.

Even though G2 haven’t won a single tournament in 2021, they have managed to reach at least semi-finals in all of their last five. What’s more, G2 hold a respectable 66.7% win rate across the last three months.

Their next opponents, Sinners Esports, are an up-and-coming Czech roster, who have recently reached no.24 in the world rankings. Like G2, they hold a solid 64% win rate across the last three months; however, it’s worth pointing out that, unlike G2, Sinners have been playing mostly against second-tier opponents during that stretch.

As the betting odds would suggest, there is a massive quality gap between these two teams, with G2 expected to dominate the game and end it in a clean 2-0 sweep. Although you could make a case for Sinners to cause some damage and potentially steal a map, such a scenario seems unlikely.

The only thing Sinners have going for them is that G2 haven’t played a single competitive match in a month, but that won’t be enough for them to upset the current no.3 in the world.

Prediction: G2 Esports -1.5 maps

Virtus.pro Vs OG

  • When: Saturday, August 21st – 13:30 CEST

Virtus.pro and OG last met at IEM Summer 2021 at the start of June, when OG won with 16-10 on Mirage and 16-11 on Overpass. OG have since played six games and won three.

That run includes wins against Evil Geniuses (2-1), Team Vitality (2-1), and Team One (16-6), and losses against Gambit Esports (0-3), BIG (0-2), and Renegades (0-2).

Virtus.pro, meanwhile, played out 12 games since their loss against OG and won six – against Team Spirit (2-1), Ninjas in Pyjamas (2-1, 2-0), K23 (2-1), Complexity (2-1), and BIG (2-0).

Virtus.pro have achieved more than OG over the last month, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that OG should be priced as +100 underdogs. Yes, they have severely underperformed at IEM Cologne, where they suffered two upset losses against BIG and Renegades, but this is still a good team.

They have the talent needed to make it out of groups and potentially go on a deep playoffs run, and we wouldn’t be surprised if they manage to do so. The potential is there, but the question is whether they’ll manage to reach their ceiling.

Both teams have been out of action for a month, so we can expect a bit more volatile and open game, which should give OG a decent chance to go 2-0 up in the head-to-head. Still, a bet on over 2.5 maps makes more sense.

Prediction: Over 2.5 maps
