In the first round of the ESL Pro League North America, there will be a meeting between the Evil Geniuses and 100 Thieves. In fact, this will be the only EG game on Week 1, while 100Thieves will play 3 matches, starting with March 26 clash with Swole Patrol. Along with Team Liquid, EG are still on top of NA CS:GO scene, however, EG had poor results in 2020, including the defeat to 100Thieves on IEM Katowice. Evil Geniuses vs 100Thieves, March 27, 23:00 CEST.
Evil Geniuses news and stats
In mid-2019, Evil Geniuses were in their best playing form. By winter, the guys began to sag strongly, not only in personal skill but also in team play. There were separate matches when it seemed that the good old Evil Geniuses returned to the world stage, but all this turned out to be just a mirage. Last time we watched Evil Geniuses as part of the IEM Katowice, where they were performing terribly again – lost to OG, Liquid and 100 Thieves to finish only in 9th-12th place.
100 Thieves news and stats
I want to praise 100 Thieves for their composure and courage. At the beginning of 2020, the Australians looked worse than nowhere – solid pockets, disgusting matches against G2 and a flurry of other problems. During the IEM Katowice championship, the “thieves” dispersed, were able to get in good shape and even reached the quarter-finals, where they lost to Fnatic on two maps during extra rounds.
EG vs 100Thieves – Match Winner
According to X-Bet.co eSports odds, Team Liquid is a slight favorite to win in this match, as the latest odds on them are 1.66. Meanwhile, in the case of 100Thieves victory, you will multiply your bet by 2.27 times. It is difficult to predict the outcome of the meeting, which will take place online. On the one hand, 100 Thieves are more credible in recent matches. But Evil Geniuses are not simpletons, they have a wide map-pool in their arsenal. Teams are on the 8th and 9th lines in the hltv world rankings, so I expect to see a close match. Therefore, for this match, I will go with a betting tip Total Maps – Over 2.5 with the latest X-Bet.co eSports odds 2.04.
