Faze vs. Fnatic Betting Predictions, Picks & Value Hunting

We’re not doing well, guys! The last two of our DreamHack Masters Spring 2020 picks ended up on the losing end, meaning we have to do all it takes to get back to winning ways. That’s why I’ve gone out of my way to provide you with an in-depth look at Faze vs. Fnatic predictions. We’re talking about the group C titans’ clash that will decide the group winner AKA upper bracket contestant. There’s everything to play for here, for both teams, so let’s dig right in and see how this online match is going to pan out!

Faze vs. Fnatic Predictions

Let’s start off with a few introductory sentences regarding both teams’ performance on this event thus far. Faze Clan is currently at the top of group C, having won against GODSENT and Team Spirit. Truth be told, both matches were pretty close, especially the latter which probably would’ve gone in Team Spirit’s way if mir could’ve finished the third map.

As for Fnatic, Team Spirit showed their prowess in the first-round match, completely destroying the Swedes with 2-0 on the scoreboard. Fnatic did get back up on their feet against GODSENT, but they’ll need to win against Faze if they are to reach the upper bracket.

Recent Head to Head Matches

As far as head to head matches go, Faze and Fnatic are pretty neck and neck. They played once in 2020. It was on ESL Pro League S11 EU when Fnatic defeated NiKo and the company with 2-1 on the scoreboard. On ESL Pro League S10 EU; Faze was the winning side, but the end result stayed the same (2-1).

When it comes to the last five matches, Faze has 3-2 and Fnatic has a 2-3 w/l ratio. It’s pretty neck and neck, I know! What will probably decide this match is Faze Clan’s slightly better form and superior map pool. Even though Fnatic has better stats overall (across all maps), Faze can make their life miserable in the banning phase… and that’s exactly what they’re going to do.

Faze vs. Fnatic Predictions

Yep – I had to go with Faze Clan here. Even though Faze only won against Team Spirit because Dima had to stand in for mir, I still believe Faze will continue with their winning ways against Fnatic. The odds are slightly in favor of Faze Clan, and I can see why. Bymas, olofmeister’s replacement, has been good thus far. He did get the debut jitters against GODSENT, but took the matter into his own hands when push came to shove against Team Spirit. While I do wish all the best to the legendary Swede, I reckon Bymas’ is going to be a solid replacement that’ll help Faze forget about Dre… Uhm, forget about olof.

How to Stay One Step Ahead of the Bookies

If you’re serious about becoming a CS:GO betting enthusiast, one thing is certain – you need to find a way to stay one step ahead of the bookies. That’s the only way you’ll ever be profitable in this hobby – remember that!

Unfortunately, it’s not as straightforward as it may seem. Staying one step ahead and playing dirty takes practice. A ton of it, mind you! The best we can do here is give you a few guidelines so you can get your stride going in the right direction!

Compare the Odds

Even if you’re using the world’s best esports bookmakers, that doesn’t mean you should stop comparing their CS:GO odds. If you want the best possible returns, finding the bookies that have the lowest profit margins is a must! Compare, compare, and when you’re all done with comparing the odds, compare them some more! Don’t limit yourself to two or three bookies. Explore at least five of them, and splash out test wagers before you make the deposit. The differences in potential returns will surprise you, I’m sure of it!

Explore Specials

Often times, a simple match-winner bet just won’t suffice. Yes, it might possess solid value, but if the matchup is a particularly tricky one, for one reason or another, you might want to explore different paths. Welcome esports specials! They offer the much-needed dose of versatility that might help you make the right choice and win another massive wager.

Arm Yourself with Knowledge

Becoming a profitable esports betting expert takes time. Such things don’t come overnight, no matter how knowledgeable you are. It takes patience and strong willpower. You’ll need to do extensive research before each of your wagers to try and catch a bookie off-guard. It’s time-consuming, often agonizing, but it gives the best results!

Hunt for Value

Lastly – you always need to be on the lookout for extra value. This part comes as no surprise, though, seeing as we’ve already covered stuff like odds’ comparisons and specials’ exploration. But there are a few more things you can do to get the highest value in each of your wagers. You need to test the waters, analyze the statistical depths and try not to force bets with seemingly high value. Matches that seem like they could bring you massive returns could be traps in disguise. Always take things slowly; take your time and the results will come!
