FACEIT Europe Minor Group Stage Betting Tips
For group A, it'll all start with OpTic vs 3DMAX. Their most recent matchup was during DreamHack Masters Stockholm in June. OpTic came out ahead.
After two close matches, OpTic took the last map 16-3. With their first match being a best of one, we think it'll be too hard to predict this win, so you should avoid it.
Next is ENCE vs LeftOut. For those unaware, LeftOut is a lineup consisting of French and Dutch players that were essentially left out of the only other top tier French organization right now, G2.
Both teams played against each other recently and once again, things were too close for comfort. Making a bet here on a best of one would be a bad idea.
But what about the initial matches in Group B? Firstly, we have Kinguin vs Sprout. Not much of a better picture here, as both teams have constantly gone back in forth in recent events.
The final initial match is NiP vs Red Reserve. Two competent Swedish teams here.
We think that in a best of three, NiP would come out on top, but it's once again too close of a matchup to bet on safely during a best of one.
This leaves very little to bet on during the initial group stage.
If you don't mind making some risks, we would suggest opting for small bets on any best of three games with these matchups:
- Bet On NiP versus Sprout, Kinguin, or 3DMAX
- bet Against 3DMAX against NiP, OpTic, or Red Reserve
Unfortunately, besides these bets, there's just too much risk for games to go either way throughout this event, so it may be better to make small bets on the matchups we've mentioned above and then leave it at that.
