Complexity vs. Cloud9 Esports – BLAST Premier Showdown (November 28, 2020)

| November 27, 2020 5:19 am PDT

Complexity enjoyed an almost flawless start of the BLAST Premier: Fall 2020 Showdown, but the team’s next challenge should be tougher. Cloud9 looked strong in the opener too and managed to overcome Ninjas in Pyjamas.

Both squads enter the second round of the playoffs with confidence, but one of them will be eliminated on Saturday.

I share my thoughts on their chances in this Complexity vs. Cloud9 betting preview. The post includes the latest odds and lines, an overview of both sides, my prediction, and a free betting pick.

Complexity vs. Cloud9 Odds

Complexity to win -256
Cloud9 to win +209
Complexity (-1.5) +111
Cloud9 (+1.5) -147
Over 2.5 +127
Under 2.5 -169

The Complexity vs. Cloud9 odds above are offered by BetOnline. That’s one of the top places for CS:GO betting for multiple reasons, most notably the low margin and the wide coverage of tournaments. The number of markets is impressive for every major event, including the BLAST Premier Showdown.

Complexity Form and Analysis

After a strong summer, Complexity’s performance dropped off a bit in the fall. The squad was disappointing in several tournaments in a row, including the BLAST Premier Regular Season, the ESL Pro League Season 12, and the IEM XV New York.

One of the reasons could be oBo’s departure, but he was replaced by jks and the team has slowly returned to form lately.

Complexity started November with wins over NaVi and Fnatic in the IEM XV Beijing, followed by a crushing victory over Sprout in the BLAST Fall Showdown.

The whole squad looked strong and it seems like the chemistry is back. If Complexity keeps improving, it won’t be a shocker to see them in the competition’s finals. The team was among my top contenders before the start of BLAST Premier Showdown, so I’m glad the guys are looking better.

Cloud9 Form and Analysis

The past couple of months have been a complete rollercoaster for Cloud9 and the roster went through multiple changes. That affected the team’s results heavily and we saw several defeats in September that were followed by a break in October.

Cloud9’s return in November wasn’t easy either and the squad lost against OG and Virtus.pro in Flashpoint Season 2.

The team desperately needed a good match and it came against NiP in the opening round of the BLAST Fall Showdown.

floppy and es3tag both had over 50 kills and are expected to do more heavy lifting against Complexity. The question is if the rest will show up because that’s not an opponent you can beat with only two members playing at their best.

Complexity vs. Cloud9 Pick

I’m glad that Cloud9 looked fine in the opener vs. NiP, but Complexity is a much stronger team. The favorite should have the upper hand on Saturday and I expect a clean win. The price of +111 for Complexity to cover the -1.5 handicap looks way too high to miss.

Pick
  • Complexity (-1.5)
    +111
