With the third week of CS:GO #HomeSweetHome getting underway on Tuesday and every team in the tournament looking to stop BIG from claiming its third straight title in as many weeks, it’s time to find out who’s in action and which teams are offering the best value against their Counter Strike eSports betting odds.
eSports Betting: Counter Strike Home Sweet Home May 7th Matches
Nordavind vs. FATE
- Nordavind winning odds: -167
- FATE (Bulgaria) winning odds: +125
- Date: Thursday, May 7 at 3:50 PM
Nordavind went 0-2 in Week 1 in group D before rebounding to go 2-0 in Week 2 in group B. After failing to reach the playoffs in Week 1, Nordavind was on the wrong end of a 2:0 shutout loss against eventual champion BIG in their Week 2 playoff opener. Nordavind has won three straight matches and four of their last five including a 16:8 win over Blast Rising on Tuesday. Nordavind has won just 9 f 19 matches over the last three months while winning 53 of their last 103 matches over the last year (52%).
FATE (Bulgaria) makes its CS:GO #HomeSweetHome debut in this match after competing in DreamHack Masters Spring and ESEA MDL Season 34 Europe. Unfortunately, FATE has dropped three straight after winning their previous two and comes into this affair off a 16:10 loss against Alternate aTTaX on April 30. FATE has won seven of their last 11 matches over the last three months while going 30-24 over the course of the last year (56%).
Nordavind took the only head-to-head meeting against FATE 16:8 back on February 2 and they are the easy pick to get the win in this meeting. Nordavind looks like a real threat to win Week 3 after a solid Week 2 performance in which the only team to beat them were the two-time champs. Don’t over-think this one. It won’t be that close people as Nordavind cruises to victory!
Complexity Gaming vs. SMASH
- Complexity Gaming winning odds: -250
- SMASH winning odds: +180
- Date: Thursday, May 7 at 5:20 PM
Complexity Gaming has lost four of their last five including a hard-fought 2:1 loss against Nip on Saturday as they get set to make their #HomeSweetHome debut in this match. Complexity Gaming has won just 28 of their last 60 matches over the last year (47%).
SMASH has split their last four matches evenly but comes into this affair off a 2:0 loss against BIG in the Week 2 championship showdown. SMASH has won just three of their last 10 matches while going 31-26 over their last 57 matches over the course of the last year (55%).
SMASH won the only head-to-head meeting against Complexity Gaming by recording a narrow 2:1 win at the Europe Minor Open in February and SMASH is the easy pick to get it done again, mostly because Complexity gaming is in the midst of some serious struggles right now. SMASH gets it done in this one and they get it done handily!
