Paradox vs. TRUCKERS WITH ATTITUDE Preview & Prediction - Free CS:GO Betting Picks 8/12
Paradox and TRUCKERS WITH ATTITUDE are facing in the Stage 2 lower bracket final of the ESL Australia & NZ Championship Season 11, and Paradox is a favorite to win in this Best of 3 encounter. These sides have met on seven occasions so far, and Paradox is leading the series 5-2.
Paradox came back to the CS:GO tour after missing ten days and beat AVANT at the ESEA MDL Season 34 Australia and Ground Zero in the opening round of this tournament, not dropping a single map along the way. Paradox won nine of the previous 13 matches and has a 56.7% win rate in the last three months. In that span, Paradox displayed excellent performances on Mirage (82.4%) and was decent on Nuke (60.0%) and vertigo (60.0%), while they disappointed on Train (12.5%).
TRUCKERS WITH ATTITUDE lost the opening map in the first game of the ESL Australia & NZ Championship Season 11 to VERTEX but bounced back with wins on Inferno and Mirage to secure a W. They won six of the last nine games and have a 52.0% win rate over the past three months. During that period, TRUCKERS WITH ATTITUDE were unbeaten on Train and performed very well on Overpass (83.3%) and Inferno (75.0%), while they were way below average on Dust2 (20.0%) and Nuke (20.0%).
Pick: Over 2.5 Maps (+114 @ GG.BET)
Although Paradox won each of the last three H2H duels, two of three Best of 3 matchups produced a maximum of three maps. I will avoid betting on the winner here, even though I am giving an advantage to Paradox. I am going with over 2.5 maps instead – it’s going to be a tight clash with a lot of rounds.
