FaZe vs Rebels Match Preview

CS2 odds used in this article were provided by one of the best CS2 betting sites, Thunderpick.


During the last couple of months, FaZe established themselves as one of the best CS2 teams in the world. The international squad has an incredible record in the new game, winning three of the five events they attended, and coming second in the remaining two.

The squad’s newest addition to the roster David “frozen” Cernansky seems to be settling in well into the lineup, as evidenced by him topping the charts and being the highest-performing player on his team in the recently finished BLAST Spring Groups.

Two years ago FaZe claimed the IEM Katowice title, with the win being the catalyst to their success later that year. The international powerhouse will be hoping to replicate that feat and begin 2024 with a trophy lift in the Spodek.

Before the Play-in stage taking place, no one expected Rebels to come even remotely close to qualifying for the IEM Katowice main draw. However, shock victories and a fortunate draw allowed the Poles to do the impossible and advance further.

Their journey began with a surprising win against a poor-playing Cloud9. Even with that result, not many people thought that Rebels could capitalize and win another series. After a devastating loss to Eternal Fire, the Poles bounced back against M80 and booked themselves a spot in the IEM Katowice group stage.

Now Rebels will get the chance to test their skills against some of the best teams in the world, starting with FaZe in their opening matchup.

FaZe vs Rebels Odds & Prediction

Thunderpick odds have FaZe as the overwhelming favourites to move past Rebels and progress to one of Group A’s Upper semi-finals. Any other result would be a shock to everyone, including Rebels themselves.

  • Prediction: FaZe (2-0) Rebels
  • Odds: FaZe Win (-1667/1.07), Rebels Win (+600/7.00)
  • CS2 Betting Site: Thunderpick
