Vitality vs OG

Predictions: Vitality to win

Odds: 1.72

Betting Site: Odds provided by Midnite Esports

When: August 19, 2022 – 13:00 CEST

Opening up BLAST Premier Fall 2022 will be World No. 7 Vitality against OG, who is off to a big start. OG will arrive here by freshly qualifying for  IEM Rio Europe RMR.

At the start of the 2022 season, Vitality assembled a brand new roster and tried to take their team synergy a step further with each new tournament they played. However, they stumbled when it came to beating equally strong opponents. That’s why they recently made a roster change and added spinx from ENCE.

Even though OG are in good form, Vitality are superior on paper.

Ninjas in Pyjamas vs Astralis

Predictions: Astralis to win

CS:GO Odds: 1.96

When: August 19, 2022 – 14:00 CEST

It is worth noting that the opening matches of the BLAST Premier Fall 2022 Groups will be played as best-of-one. In every field of esports, BO1 matches have led to surprise results. Most recently, we witnessed Astralis losing 16-11 to Aurora and missing the Major RMR.

On the other hand, Ninjas in Pyjamas have an advantage over Astralis in BO1 series. However, in the regular series, Astralis are far ahead of their opponent. It is not unreasonable to predict that Astralis will start the tournament well, especially after the disappointment of the past few days.

Natus Vincere vs Complexity

Odds: 1.28

When: August 20, 2022 – 13:00 CEST

The 2022 season has been quite successful for Natus Vincere so far. Although they’ve been one step behind FaZe Clan, they’ve been at the top of their game in every major tournament. While it’s hard to maintain this consistency in such a busy schedule, they have one more important tournament ahead of them. Fortunately, their first opponent this time is relatively weak.

Complexity have yet to achieve serious success with the roster they formed at the beginning of 2021. Especially against the teams above them in the World Rankings, they have not been able to show any presence. Although they have a 4-game winning streak, it is very difficult for them to maintain it against Na’Vi.

G2 Esports vs Liquid

Predictions: Liquid to win

Odds: 2.22

When: August 13, 2022 – 16:00 CEST

Due to inconsistent results and a lack of wins in important matches, G2 Esports recently made changes to their roster. After parting ways with Aleksib and JACKZ, the European giant signed HooXi and jks. The new roster will make its debut against Liquid.

Liquid, on the other hand, seemed to recover from a relatively bad season with YEKINDAR joining the team as a stand-in. They managed to take 5th place at IEM Cologne 2022 and the core of the team has recovered a bit in terms of teamplay. 

G2 went through a rebuild and it’s been a short time. They will suffer from this against Liquid. With YEKINDAR’s influence, Liquid are one step ahead to win this series.
