Esports Betting Tips: Tuesday, February 8th

Fnatic Rising vs Young Ninjas

Malta Vibes Knockout Series 6

The last time these two teams met was about a month ago when they played two BO1 matches. Young Ninjas took the first match, 16-11 on Overpass, while Fnatic Rising managed to win the second with 16-3 on Vertigo.

Their last BO3 match happened way back in November 2021 during Elisa Invitational Winter 2021 Regionals, when Fnatic Rising won 2-0, with 19-16 on Inferno and 16-11 on Vertigo. Iulian 'regali' Harjău was their best performer of the day with 47 frags and 1-17 HLTV rating, while on the side of Young Ninjas, it was Love 'phzy' Smidebrant with 51 frags and a 1.20 HLTV rating.

Unfortunately, Young Ninjas will be without Love 'phzy' Smidebrant for this fixture since he has joined the main NiP roster as a temporary replacement for Nicolai 'device' Reedtz. I was never too big of a fan of this team, to begin with, and seeing them lose arguably their best player doesn't look good for their chances to beat Fnatic Rising.

Sure, Fnatic Rising might not be anything special, but since Young Ninjas are playing without their star AWP player, winning here should not be much of an issue.

Entropiq vs LookingForOrg

Elisa Invitational Winter 2021

Entropiq are currently ranked as the ninth-best team in the world and hold onto a four-match winning streak with wins against teams of similar quality to LookingForOrg. They won 2-0 against Finest, Enterprise, Nemiga and Into the Breach. 

Entropiq are the heavy favourites to win on Tuesday, and they know it. Anything else than a clean 2-0 win for them would be a disappointment.

We were quite unlucky with our bet on LookingFroOrg yesterday. They had to forfeit their first map against PACT, and starting the series down a map is never good for morale. Still, LookingForOrg started the second map quite competitively and were 8-7 up at HT, but then they completely collapsed, lost 9-16 on Inferno, and ended the series 0-2.

LookingForOrg have had problems through their whole European campaign and were quite unlucky – unable to show what they can achieve. They first had to play with stand-ins, and now in the first match where they have a full roster available; they fall out flat due to connectivity issues.

As for their upcoming match against Entropiq, they should know they have no chance of winning. Beating the likes of AGO, HAVU, MASONIC is not difficult, but they should have no chance against a proper top-tier team like Entropiq. Trust Entropiq to destroy LFO, 2-0.

Savage vs Sprout

ThunderPick Bitcoin Series 2022

As anticipated, Savage lost against Team Spirit on Monday. They entered the match against the Russian squad as the favourites but ended up losing 1-2, leaving us with a nice winning bet. But, Savage played quite well for their standards.

They managed to take the series lead with a close 16-13 win on Ancient. And even though Spirit won the remaining two maps, 16-11 on Dust2 and 16-13 on Overpass, Savage put up a strong fight, and to be perfectly honest, the match would have easily ended the other way.

Leonid 'chopper' Vishnyakov was the best player for Spirit, with 61 frags and a 1.20 HLTV rating, which is quite surprising for an IGL. On the side of Savage, their best player was Niclas 'PlesseN' Plessen, with 68 frags and a 1.18 HLTV rating.

Sprout recently lost their star player Josef 'faveN' Baumann, so they are again in a rebuilding phase, but the results are looking quite promising so far. They are ranked as the #22 team in the world and have won 75% of their matches across the last three months.

These two teams met about two weeks ago in the Pinnacle Winter Series 1 when Sprout won 2-1. Savage won the first map, 16-6 on Ancient, but Sprout hit back strong with a 16-9 win on Dust2. The series came down to the decider on Overpass, which was quite a competitive affair for the first half, but in the second, Sprout turned on their jets and ran off with a 16-10 win.

I expect a similarly close affair this time around, but I am more confident in the Sprout project. Bet on Sprout to win!

Sprout to win
