Winstrike vs. lvlUP Preview & Prediction - Free CS:GO Betting Picks 8/7
Winstrike and lvlUP will meet in the Group D opening match of the Eden Arena Malta Vibes Cup 6, and Winstrike is a favorite to win in this single map encounter. These sides have never met before.
The Serbian team lvlUP is not playing well lately and is struggling to reach the final stage of the tournaments. Most recently, they suffered an early elimination out of the Nine to Five 2, after losing to CR4ZY. They lost eight of the previous 11 games and has a 40.9% win rate over the past three months. In that span, lvlUP performed very well on Inferno (70.0%), but they failed to impress on Mirage (25.0%) and Vertigo (28.6%).
Winstrike is also far from being in a good form recently and that’s why lvlUP actually has a chance to make an upset here. They failed to connect two victories since mid-May. Winstrike lost ten of the last 13 matches and has a 36.8% win rate in the last three months. During that period, Winstrike was average on Dust2 and Vertigo, while they didn’t taste a win on Train and disappointed on Overpass (25.0%) and Mirage (27.3%).
Pick: 1st Map Rounds Over 25.5 (-154 @ GG.BET)
Winstrike is not in convincing form at the moment, just like lvlUP, so this duel has the potential to produce a bunch of round in the first and only map. Normally, I would back Winstrike to win, but considering the circumstances, I prefer to go with over 25.5 rounds. Perhaps lvlUP is not good enough to get a win here, but winning ten rounds shouldn’t be a problem against the struggling opponent.
