The first day of BLAST Premier Spring Showdown stayed true to the Group Stage’s spirit. Two out of three matches were massive upsets.
- First, Astralis lost to OG in what was a brilliant display by the valde and the boys.
- Second, Dignitas defeated Liquid and dealt what could be the killing blow to the current TL roster.
G2 is the only team that justified the role of the opening-round favorites. What about FURIA vs. MIBR predictions, are we going to see another upset or is this one going to go according to the books?

Well, there’s plenty to discuss here! Brazilian teams are known for fiery rivalries and this one is no different.

If all you’re interested in is placing CSGO bets, then let’s cut to the chase and start dissecting this clash!
FURIA vs. MIBR Predictions
Believe it or not, it was just three weeks ago during the group stage of ESL Pro League S13. FURIA took MIBR down with resounding wins on Overpass and Inferno. Yuurih and KSCERATO weren’t the focal points here; this match was all about arT who finished it with 107 average damage per round.
A quick look at MIBR’s recent results shows one disappointing campaign after another, all the way from CS_summit 7 to the recently ESL Pro League. Unfortunately, MIBR failed to get out of the group stage on that one, partially because of that loss against FURIA.
They were nothing but solid against Gambit, almost going all the way on Train, following a surprising win on Overpass. Combine that with a win against Team One and C9 in the final round and you’ll realize MIBR is stronger than what meets the eye at first.
FURIA had a wicked run on ESL Pro League, reaching all the way to the semifinals.
Banning Phase Superiority
Which of these teams will have the upper hand before the match even starts, in the banning phase? Which of these two has the superior map pool that’ll help them get a better grip on the actual bo3 match?
KSCERATO and the boys are better on Inferno, Train, Vertigo, and Nuke… but Nuke is MIBR’s permaban so it doesn’t mean much in the grand scheme of things. MIBR will hope to snatch Dust 2 but knowing FURIA, they won’t waste a second banning this one.
KSCERATO and yuurih are typically the key players for FURIA. But, we have to praise arT for his fine form too. FURIA always values teamwork more than anything else, and I’m certain that will be their strategy coming into this match.
As for MIBR, the player they’ll hope to rise up to the challenge is chelo. The 22-year-old has been showing glimpses of brilliance throughout his tenure at MIBR. If he can snowball from the early game, MIBR could very easily spice this match up.
With those words, I’m afraid we’re nearing the end of our FURIA vs. MIBR tips. There’s just the official line left for us to deploy… here goes nothing:

I am afraid I am not brave enough to opt for a correct score wager here. I do believe MIBR will put up a fight, but I also believe FURIA will cruise to victory. Correct score 2:1 in favor of FURIA goes for around +175 which offers a far better return than our match-winner.
We’re keeping things simple for our FURIA vs. MIBR tips today. So yeah, that’s about it. Thank you for your time – hope our picks will make it worth your while!
