Match Prediction: Evil Geniuses - Heroic | CS:GO

Evil Geniuses and Heroic will meet in the final of the lower bracket of the BLAST Premier Spring Groups 2023 group stage. The winner will make it to the final of group A and play with Vitality, while the losing team will go to the first round of Play-In.

Perhaps you should not expect intrigue here. Yes, the North American team sensationally defeated Heroic at the very start of the championship, but on the eve of Evil Geniuses, Vitality did not oppose anything.

In turn, Heroic got a difficult victory in the derby over Astralis, although it looked very bad and dismantled on Inferno. And yet, here the Danes must take revenge and return the logic to the screens, since two cards must go in their favor without delay.

Well, it remains to wish good luck to Evil Geniuses, because without it, as in the first match, there is absolutely nothing to do here.

Evil Geniuses form

The 32nd team of the world ranking managed to fail in the ESEA Autumn 2022 Cash Cup 7 North America, on which they ended last season - however, nothing surprising happened.

However, at the start of the group stage of BLAST Premier Spring Groups 2023, the North American team very unexpectedly closed Heroic, miraculously taking the last two maps with a score of 16:14.

And yet the logic returned the day before, as Evil Geniuses lost to Vitality without a chance. Therefore, given such a sinusoid, I would not continue to think that the team is ready to gain a foothold at the TIER-1 level.

Evil Geniuses latest results:

  • Victory over Infinity with a score of 16:10.
  • Defeat from ATK with a score of 1:2.
  • Technical defeat by Nouns Esports.
  • Victory over Heroic with a score of 2:1.
  • Defeat from Vitality with a score of 0:2.

Best Evil Geniuses cards:

  • Overpass - 67% of wins.

It is worth saying that in the last matches the North American team refused the Anubis card.

Form Heroic

The first team of the world ranking made it to the grand final of IEM Rio Major 2022, after which it immediately became the winner of BLAST Premier Fall Final 2022, finishing FaZe Clan in that final.

However, the Danes still failed to finish the season with a bang, as they failed in the BLAST Premier World Final 2022, where they did not get a single victory in the group.

And at the start of BLAST Premier Spring Groups 2023, Xizt's wards managed to lose to Evil Geniuses, believing in themselves too early. Fortunately, on the eve of Heroic, they managed to overcome Astralis in the derby, from where you can return.

Heroic's latest results:

  • Victory over FaZe Clan with a score of 2:1.
  • Lost to OG with a score of 1:2.
  • Defeat from Natus Vincere with a score of 1:2.
  • Defeated by Evil Geniuses with a score of 1:2.
  • Victory over Astralis with a score of 2:1.

Best Heroic Maps:

  • Vertigo - 83% of wins.
  • Overpass - 75% of wins.
  • Mirage - 71% of wins.
  • Ancient - 60% of wins.

In turn, in the last match, the Danish team banned the map Ancient.

Statistics of meetings Evil Geniuses — Heroic

As part of the current season, the teams held one meeting - at the start of the group stage of BLAST Premier Spring Groups 2023, the victory went to Evil Geniuses (2:1).

Prediction for the match Evil Geniuses — Heroic

If the North Americans play so badly with Vitality, then it's hard to call their victory over Heroic anything other than a random one. And in fact, the Danes had to close Evil Geniuses in that match with a devastating score. And I think that now the logic will return.

It doesn't make much sense to talk about cards, since the North American team is literally tied up. As for the Danes, they should wake up after defeating Astralis and restore their name.

Therefore, in this case, I would recommend betting on the victory of the Heroic team with a score of 2:0.

According to leading bookmakers predictions, the team Heroic are the favorite with average odds 1.069 at the moment. Respectively, bookmakers consider Evil Geniuses to be the outsider of the match with odds on a victory in the sum of about 9.643.
