Besides that I'm NIP fan they worth a try with that odds for a winner. With new in gaming leader lekr0 they improving with each match. Also they played great against Astralis and I see a lot of potential for them.

I really considering betting on Natus Vincere against Astralis. Astralis after a tournament where they lost final to the North and after it they had this FACEIT Major qualification and I they played differently and now looks weaker. Maybe emotional exhausted? It could play a big role in tonight's match especially when it's the first match and the lost wouldn't be catastrophe for them. Motivation IMO for the Natus Vincere is bigger at this stage.

Great win for NIP against mousesports. Again they played in the Mirage and again they looked improved in this map. I'm excited to see how NIP will look in the other maps.

FaZe - mouesports

I'm going here with FaZe full confidence. They are struggling at the moment but overall with that roster they are one of the best and of the most dangerous teams in CS:GO. Meanwhile mousesports are playing terrible and seems that they didn't prepared for the Major well. Actually I heard some rumours about mousesports that there are problems inside the teams and some of the team players are having different approach and this could be the reason why they playing that bad. One of the team will loose and go to the Minor challenges but I'm pretty sure that this team will be mousesports. So my bet FaZe @1.666 in Pinnacle
