Triumph vs. Evil Geniuses Betting Preview and Prediction, April 30, 2020

Many of the favorites have been struggling in the ESL One Road to Rio so far and Evil Geniuses is one of the best examples. The team was among the big favorites in Group A of the competition but is second to bottom with only one victory and two defeats instead.

Furthermore, that win came against Orgless that forfeited the competition, so every other opponent will get a win against them too. It’s a tough spot for EG and the match against Triumph is a must-win under the circumstances.

I analyze the chances and the performance of both sides so far in this Triumph vs. Evil Geniuses betting preview. It also includes odds, my prediction, and a free betting pick.

Triumph vs. Evil Geniuses Odds and Lines

  • Triumph to win; +555
  • Evil Geniuses to win; -915
  • Triumph (+1.5); +132
  • Evil Geniuses (-1.5); -165
  • Over 2.5; +174
  • Under 2.5; -220

The Triumph vs. Evil Geniuses odds you see here are available at 10bet, one of my favorite bookmakers for CS:GO. As you can see, EG is the overwhelming favorite here which is slightly surprising to me based on what we’ve seen up to this point.

Triumph Current Form

The expectations for Triumph weren’t high, but the team has battled hard so far in the ESL One Road to Rio. It all started with a close victory over Cloud9 that gave the squad hope, but two defeats against Gen.G and 100 Thieves followed.

Still, Triumph had some good moments in both of them and after Orgless is out, the squad suddenly has a record of two wins and two defeats. That opens the door to the next stage if Triumph could beat Evil Geniuses today.

Evil Geniuses Current Form

We all thought that Evil Geniuses would dominate this Group A or at least comfortably finish in the top 3 that would be enough for the next stage. Instead, the team is on the brink of elimination and must win both remaining games to survive.

That would be a hard task considering EG’s form. The team lost close matches against 100 Thieves and Cloud9, looking shaky in the process. Triumph should be an easier opponent on paper, but that doesn’t mean much if the Geniuses don’t improve.

Triumph vs. Evil Geniuses Free Betting Pick

  • Over 2.5; +174

My prediction is that Evil Geniuses will win this one but I’m shocked by the odds of +174 for over 2.5 maps. Based on both sides’ performance so far, going to a decider makes a lot of sense and that price is exceptional.

You can find not only at 10bet but in most leading esports betting sites and I have no doubt this is the pick for the match between Triumph and Evil Geniuses.
