FlashPoint Championship (CSGO) – April 19, 2020

CSGO Flashpoint Finals – April 19, 2020

MIBR (-110) vs Mad Lions (-120) 3:00pm EST

The Flashpoint championship starts today at 3:00pm EST with the winning team taking home $500,000! These two teams matched up just five days ago when MIBR beat Mad Lions by a score of 2-1. That match sent the Mad Lions to the finals of the lower bracket where they shutout HAVU. Mad Lions and MIBR have only met one time previous to their most recent matchup and Mad Lions took that match by a score of 2-0. All time these teams are 1-1 against each other with Mad Lions winning three maps to MIBRs two.

Throughout the flashpoint tournament MIBR has consistently had huge individual play across the whole team. They have had plenty of clutch moments, but a lot of those moments could have gone either way. Mad Lions on the other hand, plays more of a team game. Their gameplay is more strategic and more reliant on other members of the squad. This has been reflected on the scoreboard throughout the tournament as MIBR is yet to win a game by a score of 2-0. In the Mad Lions only loss they were able to at least win a map as well. In a finals match I am more comfortable backing the more consistent squad that excels at playing as a team.

I will also be going back to the over 2.5 total map well for this finale. The Mad Lions have a 6 map win streak on Mirage and a 7 map streak on Nuke. This will make MIBR’s first ban a tricky one. Mad Lions face a similar dilemma with MIBR coming into this game with 4 map win streaks on both Train and Dust2. On top of each team playing well on their picked maps, there is 500,000 dollars on the line!! That is a ton of money and should give these teams a little extra motivation to win. I expect this matchup to be a battle and eventually come down to the tie breaker map.
