BIG vs. OG Preview & Prediction - Free 8/15 CS:GO Betting Picks
On the 15th of August, BIG will face OG in the Best of 3 semi-final matchup of the DreamHack Open Summer Europe. This will be the 7th meeting of these two teams, and it is currently a toss-up as each team has three victories.
The Germans have been in a great form for the last three months with a win rate of 84.6%. A month ago, BIG won first place at the cs_summit 6 Europe and collected an incredible $34.000. After a well-deserved one-month break, they continued their series of victories and currently have four wins in a row. They have a positive score on all maps. They are invincible on Overpass, and the best chance to beat them is on Inferno (55.6%).
DreamHack Open Summer Europe is the first tournament OG plays after a short summer break; for now, they have two wins and one loss. The last three months have not been so bad, and they are recording a win rate of 60.9%. In the same period, OG played with the most success on Nuke (69.2%) and Inferno (63.6%), but they were much worse on Overpass (25.0%).
Pick: Total maps Over 2.5 ( 129 @GGbet.com)
Bookmakers consider BIG to be the favorite in this match. Although they are currently #1 in the world, OG wants revenge for the painful defeat in the Consolidation finals at cs_summit 6 Europe. I think the odds -300 on BIG to win is underestimating, so I will play total maps over 2.5 like it was the case in their previous H2H matchup.
