forZe vs. Team Spirit (CSGO) – April 20, 2020

forZe vs. Team Spirit – 12:00pm EST – Dreamhack Spring Qualifier

    Forze and Team Spirit will be facing off today at noon eastern time in the consolidation final for the Dreamhack Spring Season Qualifier. The winner of this game will lock their spot into the spring season while the loser will not be able to qualify. Forze comes into this matchup coming off of a two win day in which they beat Virtus.Pro and OG. Team Spirit will be looking to turn things around as they lost to God Sent yesterday. With the win, Spirit could have locked themself into a qualifying spot so expect them to be looking to redeem a close loss.

    Forze and Spirit come into this matchup in similar form. Each team is ranked in the top 25 globally and has only suffered one loss throughout qualifiers. Bookmakers see these teams about dead even as well. Team Spirit money line is priced at (-125) while the forZe line sits at (-105). These teams have played each other on 14 different maps over the course of the last year. Through those 14 map they are dead even with each team winning 7 maps and 5 of the 14 maps were decided in overtime. They have met in four different best of three series over that span. Three of the four BO3 series went to the tie breaking third map. After cashing both map totals on Saturday, I plan on going right back to the well for this one. I like playing the over in matches where the teams skill level is even and their is more motivation to win. I expect a full effort as each squad attempts to lock themself in for the Dreamhack Spring Season.

I’ll also be playing a half unit on the Team Spirit money line. Spirit has won each of the last two meetings against forZe, with one of those meetings happening earlier this month. Team Spirit is also playing at a higher level during this event. Each of their players have a KAST rating of higher than 1.0 while only three of the five members of forZe have a rating north of 1.0. Over the last three months, Team Spirit has a higher win percentage than forZe on six of the seven maps. I believe these small edges create some value on Team Spirit.

Miner’s Money Picks: Total Maps o2.5 (-110) and Team Spirit (-120) *half unit*
