Fnatic vs. BIG Preview & Prediction - Free CS:GO Betting Picks 7/1
Fnatic and BIG will meet in the Upper bracket semi-final of the cs_summit 6 Europe, and BIG are the favorites in this encounter. The winner will face OG or Vitality in the Upper final. These rivals have met on three occasions before, and Fnatic lead the series 2-1.
The Swedish team Fnatic bounced back from an opening 2-0 loss to G2 at the cs_summit 6 Europe with three straight victories, not losing a single map along the way. Fnatic won five of the previous six matches and have a 58.8% win rate over the past three months. When it comes to the maps during the same period, fnatic were displaying the strongest performances on Overpass (72.7%), Inferno (66.7%), and Train (66.7%), while they are winless on Vertigo and not playing well on Dust2 (33.3%).
BIG were in a fantastic form of eight consecutive wins before OG stopped that positive run with a 2-1 win at this tournament. Still, the German side responded with a pair of wins over FaZe and GODSENT and have an 84.2% win rate over the last three months. In that span, BIG are unbeaten on Train and Overpass, while Mirage (68.4%) is the only map on which they have below 70.0% of success.
Pick: Over 2.5 Maps (-110 @GG.BET)
BIG won the latest head to head clash in three maps, which was their first-ever victory over Fnatic. I expect to see a similar outcome here, but given the -156 odds on BIG to win, I am going with the over because Fnatic have been in an excellent form recently and they will not give up without a fight. The bookies are backing BIG to win, but I wouldn’t bet my money on it as this duel could go either way in my opinion.
