Daily Esports Tips: Monday, May 4th.

G2 $1.87

Mousesports are out to turn around their slow start to the season when they take on G2 Esports in their week 2 Road to Rio fixture.

Just under a month ago mousesports were the top ranked CSGO team in the world, then they suffered five defeats in their next seven matches including a Grand Final loss to Fnatic in ESL season 11, now they’re left sitting in 5th spot in the world rankings and questioning everything they thought they knew about Counter Strike.

Alternatively, G2 have won four from their last seven and are sitting one place above mouz in the current world rankings, the French outfit are currently sitting 2nd in Group B of the Road to Rio with a 3-1 record.

Mouz won the last fixture between these two teams, but that was before they fell into a pit of self despair and wallowing.  

Envy 2-1 $3.30

With two games to play in Group B of North America’s Road to Rio qualifiers, Bad News Bears are all but bundled out of the comp.

BNB are currently sitting equal last with a record 0f 0-3, having already lost out to FURIA Esports, Team Liquid and MIBR.

While, Team Envy are poised to make the playoffs, holding a 2-1 record and an impressing for and against of +31.

BNB were 2-0 victors the last time these two sides met, but since then the wind has been completely taken out of their sails. 

This game means a lot more to Team Envy and I’m expecting them to throw everything they have at BNB.
