Bad News Bears vs. MIBR Odds, Prediction, and Pick for April 29th – ESL One Road to Rio, NA
The third round of Group B in the North American region of ESL One Road to Rio takes place today. A couple of teams have their backs against the wall and losing again might put an end to their chances to progress to the next stage.
Bad News Bears is one of them after suffering two defeats so far. The team has the tough task to beat MIBR to survive today and this might prove to be impossible because the Brazilians could use a win themselves.

Bad News Bears Team Analysis
I loved the bold style displayed by Bad News Bears in the opening match against Team Liquid. The squad pushed its famous opponent to the limit by going all guns blazing and showing no fear whatsoever. It was enough for one map, but the favorite eventually snatched the victory after the 29 rounds in the tiebreaker.
The performance against FURIA dropped, though, and Bad News Bears now sits at the bottom with two losses. The team needs a win today to survive and while I’m not sure we will see that, BNB won’t go down without a fight.
MIBR Team Analysis
I don’t how to evaluate the performance of MIBR in the past month or two. The team has been far from its best days, but it has been grinding results. Even the first two matches in the ESL One Road to Rio are quite polarizing.
The Brazilians barely beat their fellow countrymen from Yeah in the opening round, but then had a decent performance in the defeat against Liquid. It has been a scrappy affair so far and I expect more of the same today.
Bad News Bears vs. MIBR Betting Pick
- Over 2.5; +119
My prediction is that MIBR will once again edge a close match without playing that well. The Brazilians have become masters of achieving results without shining lately, so this clash seems perfect for a close 2-1 victory.
Considering the odds offered by most top-rated esports betting sites, the over 2.5 maps available for +119 looks like the best betting pick.
