The first round of BLAST Premier Showdown matches went by pretty smoothly. As far as surprises go, the biggest ones are FURIA losing to MIBR and Fnatic losing to MAD Lions, although the latter isn’t necessarily a major surprise, depending on who you ask… But, we shouldn’t waste any more time here – MAD vs. Dignitas predictions is what we’re here for so let’s roll up our sleeves and get right into it!
MAD vs. Dignitas Betting Predictions
MAD Lions have done a great job of starting their BLAST Premier Showdown group stage. Against all odds, Bubzkji and the boys defeated Fnatic and took control of group B. Lucas “Bubzkji” Andersen had a blast with 34 kills on Mirage. The match ended with 16-10 on the scoreboard for the Danish side.

Dignitas, on the other hand, lost against Mousesports. Don’t think Mosuesports played an extraordinary match against the Swedish side. Instead, Dignitas players looked out of pace, meaning woxic and the boys didn’t have to try all that hard for the win.
As far as the map pool goes, MAD Lions are the clear winners. They have better percentages on Dust 2, Mirage, Inferno, Nuke, and Train. The only two maps on which Dignitas have superior percentages are Vertigo and Overpass… but I’m sure the Danish side would win those as well. We’re talking about absolute map superiority here – there’s no way Dignitas can outplay MAD Lions in the banning phase!
However, there’s also one somewhat weird factor that we have to take into account for our MAD vs. Dignitas predictions. You see, this will be MAD Lions’ second match today. They will be playing against Virtus.pro before this match. While it might negatively affect their performance (depending on the result), it doesn’t necessarily have to be a negative impact.

Is Legal Esports Betting in the USA a Real Thing?The legalization of sports betting in the USA paved the way for legal esports betting too, seeing as it’s relatively the same thing as betting on conventional sports. However, there are no exact laws set up for betting on esports, meaning you can’t be 100% sure it’s legal in your state.

It’s sort of in what can be described as a gray zone; in some cases, at least.
