Syman vs. HellRaisers Preview & Prediction - Free CS:GO Betting Picks 7/3
Syman and HellRaisers will meet in the Group D opening match of the Eden Arena Malta Vibes Cup 1, and Syman are slight favorites in this Best of 1 duel. These rivals have met once so far, and Syman won that clash.
The Kazakhstani team Syman were on a three-game winning streak before sAw snapped that positive run with a 2-0 victory at the DreamHack Summer 2020 Europe Closed Qualifier. They have just a 40.0% win rate over the past three months. When it comes to the maps during the same period, Syman have a positive record only on Train (64.7%), while they are without a win on Vertigo, and have been below par on Overpass (25.0%), Nuke (25.0%), and Mirage (30.0%).
HellRaisers have been in a way worse form than Syman in the last few weeks. They suffered seven defeats in the previous eight matches, are on a three-game losing run, and have a 42.6% win rate over the last three months. In that span, HellRaisers displayed dominant performances on Nuke (71.4%), which is their only map with a positive record. On the other hand, they were winless on Overpass and weren’t playing well on Mirage (33.3%)
Pick: Total Rounds Over 26.5 (-127 @GG.BET)
I am not sure which team will take a victory in this one despite Syman’s win in only H2H duel a week ago when they beat HellRaisers 2-0 at the WePlay! Clutch Island Closed Qualifier. HellRaisers managed to get 12 and 14 rounds in that clash, respectively, and given this is a Best of 1 matchup, I expect to see a close battle. That’s why I am backing at least 27 rounds.
