Esports Betting Tips: Monday, July 5th 2021

CSGO Sinners Esports vs Team Fiend

Pinnacle Cup 2

Sinners Esports enter this match on a seven-game winning streak with wins against Enterprise (2-0), Entropiq Prague (3-1), BLINK (2-0), BIG (2-1), and three back-to-back victories against AGO (2-0, 3-0, 2-0). On the other side, Team Fiend managed a much less convincing 3-4 record in their last seven, with wins against Young Ninjas (2-1), EXTREMUM (2-1), and Endpoint and losses against SKADE (1-2), Complexity (0-2), and 777 Esports (0-2). Sinners and Fiend last met in January 2021, when Team Fiend's core was still playing under MBAPPEEK's banner. The match ended in a 13-16 win for the Bulgarians, who won with 16-13 on Mirage. Fiend have since made several roster changes, whereas Sinners kept their roster intact. Despite their strong form, Sinners are priced as $2.02 underdogs for this match, underestimating them a bit. Fiend stil have players than can pop off and carry their squad to victory, however, Sinners have Tomáš "oskar" Šťastný as their AWPer and his presence alone should be very noticeable. If oskar can find his form from the time when he was at mousesports, Sinners Esports should win this match with ease. Even if that doesn't happen, this match is a complete coin-flip, so you have to take Sinners with better odds.

ENCE vs Lyngby Vikings

Pinnacle Cup 2

Lyngby Vikings are 5-2 in their last seven but are undefeated this tournament. They won against Natus Vincere Junior (16-4), Sharks (2-0) and Double Poney (2-0) and are now only two wins away from securing a playoff spot at Pinnacle Cup 2. ENCE are 8-1 in their last nine, which includes wins against mousesports (2-0), Ninjas in Pyjamas (2-1), Endpoint (2-1), K23 (2-0), HYENAS (2-0, 2-0), HAVU (2-1), and Sangal (2-0). Their only defeat happened just over a week ago when ENCE lost to FURIA (1-2) in Gamers Without Borders 2021 semifinals. Lyngby Vikings will play with a stand-in for this match. Former North player Kristoffer "kristou" Aamand will replace Theis "J3nsyy" Jensen, who has parted ways with the team at the end of June. Kristou has already played three games with the team, and he didn't look bad, averaging 1.23 HLTV rating in Lyngby Viking's wins against NaVi Jr., Sharks, and Double Poney. However, he has yet to face a team as strong as ENCE. The Finns shouldn't struggle too much to win this match. They have better players and usually do well against second-tier teams such as Lyngby Vikings. Take ENCE to win 2-0!

Endpoint vs MIBR

Pinnacle Cup 2

MIBR won their first match since the end of May on Sunday, July 4, when they beat HAVU 2-1. Prior to that, MIBR lost to mousesports (0-2), AGO (0-2), Ninjas in Pyjamas (1-2), Lyngby Vikings (1-2), and Iberian Family (0-2) Endpoint, on the other hand, are on a three-game winning streak. They won against SAW (2-0), Copenhagen Flames (2-0), and ENCE (2-1), which ended their three-game losing streak, during which they lost against AGO (1-2), Team Fiend (0-2) and SAW (1-2). MIBR are nothing special, but I wouldn't praise Endpoint too much either. However, they have former Cloud9 player William "mezii" Merriman on the team, who has been averaging 1.23 HLTV rating since joining Endpoint. Mezii has averaged 1.51 HLTV rating across Endpoint's last three games, and with the form he is showing, MIBR will have their hands full as they look to stop him. MIBR's best player is Marcelo "chelo" Cespedes, who has been playing well. He has averaged a 1.13 HLTV rating since joining the team, but, only 0.99 across the last three games. Even though Endpoint field mezii, they shouldn't be priced as high as they are. MIBR are good enough to win here and are a great value bet at the offered odds.
