Bad News Bears vs FURIA Betting Preview 425 - Odds, Prediction, and Pick

It’s time for the second round of Group B of the ESL One Road to Rio, North America. The first one saw plenty of exciting matches and I’m hoping for more of the same on Saturday. Most eyes will be on the clash between Team Liquid and MIBR, but I believe that another match might steal the show.

The exciting performance of Bad News Bear in their opener and the recent rise of FURIA Esports give me enough reasons to at least follow that encounter too.

In this Bad News Bears vs. FURIA betting preview, I share my thoughts on the chances of both sides, the latest odds, as well as my prediction and a free betting pick.

  • Under 2.5; -168

The Bad News Bears vs. FURIA odds above are available at 10bet, one of the leading esports betting sites on the market. The bookmaker obviously expects a win for FURIA and that’s how most people view the match but I have a different opinion, as you will see below.

Bad News Bears Team Analysis

I was stunned by what Bad News Bears had to offer in the opening match against Team Liquid. The underdog was fast and furious, pushing its famous opponent to a third map and it took 29 rounds for the favorites to close the match.

The lack of fear and the borderline crazy strategies employed by BNB would’ve probably brought the team success against most opponents in the competition. I can’t wait to see what the squad does against FURIA today.

FURIA Esports Team Analysis

The opening match of FURIA Esports started slowly but the team improved over the course of the maps to beat Envy rather comfortably at the end. It wasn’t the strongest performance by the Brazilians but it was enough and many other favorites struggled.

The main issue with FURIA is the lack of consistency. The team can be among the best in the world at times, but struggles to keep it together on other occasions.

Bad News Bears vs. FURIA Betting Pick

  • Bad News Bears to win; +265

With so many surprises in the tournaments so far and considering how good BNB was in the first match, my prediction is that we are about to see another shock today. I believe that Bad News Bears can beat FURIA today and the price of +265 or so available at most of the top esports betting sites provide exceptional value.

That’s my final pick for this match, but he over 2.5 maps and the +1.5 map advantage in favor of the underdog offer safer opportunities for those who prefer a more conservative approach.

I cover more opportunities on Saturday in my esports betting tips for April 25th, including other ESL Road to Rio matches, Dota 2, and LoL.
