Vitality vs. BIG Preview & Prediction - Free CS:GO Betting Picks 7/3
The upper bracket final of the cs_summit 6 Europe will give us a tilt between Vitality (France) and BIG (Germany). Both sides are battling to enter the Grand Final and avoid playing in the Consolidation Final, which would mean an extra game.
Vitality Team Stats and Latest Results
Vitality (#2 World Rank) are the highest-ranked team left at this tournament, and therefore, the biggest favorite to win it after G2 suffered elimination early on. Vitality are in an excellent form of seven victories in the previous eight matches, and they haven’t lost two in a row since May, while they have a 63.6% win rate in the last three months. When it comes to the maps in that period, Vitality are unbeaten on Vertigo (six times played) and have been paying very well on Overpass (75.0%, eight times played). On the other hand, the only map on which they are not above .500 is Mirage (50.0%, 12 times played). Vitality’s current lineup consists of: shox (1.05 Rating), RpK (1.03), apEX (1.02), ZywOo (1.32), and misutaaa (0.99). This lineup played together on 76 maps since April 2020 and has a record of 47 wins and 27 losses with two draws.
BIG Team Stats and Latest Results
BIG (#8) are the hottest team in the world right now, and after winning the DreamHack Masters Spring 2020 Europe, they are aiming to get a trophy at this tournament as well. The Germans are in a fantastic form of 11 wins in the last 12 matches and have an 84.6% win rate over the past three months. In that span, BIG were unbeaten on Train (played once) and Overpass (played five times), while they have been very good on Dust2 (82.6%) and Nuke (78.9%). Their “weakest” displays came on Mirage (68.4%). BIG’s current lineup consists of: tabseN (1.20 Rating), tiziaN (1.07), syrsoN (1.22), XANTARES (1.21), and k1to (1.05). This lineup played together on 88 maps since April 2020 and has a record of 68 wins and 20 losses.
Vitality vs. BIG H2H Record
These rivals have met on two occasions before, and Vitality won both matches without losing a single map along the way. However, they haven’t met this year. Anyways, BIG failed to get more than 11 rounds on three maps played so far.
Vitality vs. BIG Betting Preview
Even though Vitality won both H2H encounters, they didn’t play BIG since March 2019, and BIG obviously improved in the meantime, which can be seen from their recent results. Thanks to the current form, the Germans are actually slight favorites here, and although I am leaning toward them, I am not going to bet on the winner. Vitality are also playing very well and they won all four matches at this tournament, so I cannot write them off just like that. The best bet, in my opinion, is Over 2.5 Maps, because I expect a tight affair with a lot of rounds, even overtime is a possibility.
