Dignitas vs. NiP Betting Preview

The second round robin in Group A of ESL One: Europe event pins together Team Dignitas and Ninjas in Pyjamas.

And I feel we’re in for an entertaining Swedish derby that should provide a lot of betting opportunities.

Despite the fact that these two foes haven’t met in a long while, they share a lot of history together, as there have been numerous roster changes between the organizations.

My Dignitas vs. NiP takes a look at the main betting options for the matchup and the teams’ most recent exploits. Based on all that, I provide my betting prediction and there is also a free pick in the end so make you stick around.

The Ninjas have been far better lately and it’s no wonder that they are coming into this tie as a heavy favorite. Especially after how the teams started their respective ESL One campaigns.

Let’s look at their form and proceed to the betting angle.

Dignitas Analysis

The team started their last matchup very positively after taking the first round against Heretics on their opponents’ preferred Dust II map.

However, the Swedes quickly returned to their recent disappointing form as they fell on both Inferno and Nuke.

They were the favorites to come away with a win and despite this was only a narrow victory for Heretics, it does not bode well for Dignitas’ ability to effectively challenge the elite going forward.

A big performance is needed from f0rest here and the player will definitely be pumped up for the tie being a former member of NiP and all. 

Ninjas in Pyjamas Analysis

The Ninjas are currently holding the 13th position in the global CS:GO rankings and they are off to a flying start at the ESL One: Road to Rio.

The schedule handed them a tough opening fixture against Team Vitality but elite performances from REZ, naawk, and Plopski ensured the team came out on top.

Things were not looking that great after the first round where Vitality edged NiP on the map the Ninjas chose but their main pieces came up with the goods on both Overpass and Inferno.

The team is definitely clicking right now and with this match being very personal, I except everyone will be fired up to make a statement.

Dignitas vs. NiP Prediction and Pick

If this was the opening game of the tournament, the odds for Dignitas would’ve been a lot shorter, however, the first round revealed a lot about these two organizations’ present status.

The Ninjas were an absolute force against one of the top teams on the scene, while Dignitas once again allowed a weaker team to stage a comeback and nick the tie.

The team does have great potential with f0rest and hallzerk on the roster but they are failing to make a mark and still can’t even crack the Top 40 places in the rankings.

And I doubt that today the Ninjas will give them as many opportunities as Heretics did on Wednesday.

I’m tilting towards a quick 2:0 win for the favorite here and the handicap odds present great value given the circumstances.

So, I can conclude my Dignitas vs. NiP betting preview with this as my pick:

  • NiP (-1.5)
