forZe vs. HellRaisers Pick – Monday, September 7th, 2020

| September 7, 2020 1:19 am PDT

CIS organizations forZe and HellRaisers will clash in one of the opening Swiss Stage matches at the CS:GO Nine to Five tournament.

The Russians are on an absolute roll at the moment but HellRaisers have established themselves as a very competent team in this tier and should not be underestimated.

So, can the underdogs find the resources to spring a huge surprise here?

In this post, I try to answer this question by looking at the latest odds and sharing an account of the organizations’ most recent exploits.

You will find a forZe vs. HellRaisers free betting pick in the end, so make sure you don’t go away!

As you can see, forZe is a huge favorite and with good reason.

Let’s head to my analysis section to see how these two teams have been faring lately and then I proceed with my final prediction.

forZe Current Form

The Russians have enjoyed a very positive stretch in the last several weeks where they won two editions of the Malta Vibes Cup.

Teams like MAD Lions, MIBR, Gambit Youngsters, and Dignitas all failed to overcome the forZe machine with xsepower leading the way.

The AWP specialist was voted as player of the week after winning over 80% of his opening duels but he isn’t the only man in form.

FL1T and Jerry have also racked up impressive numbers as of late and overall, the team looks ready to finally crack the Top 20 bracket.

They are coming into the tie after another series of impressive wins including toppling solid teams such as North and Sprout, and will definitely fancy their chances of ending HellRaisers’ opposition quickly.

HellRaisers Current Form

The Ukrainian organization has registered some decent performances in the last month but they are still unable to crack higher-ranked opposition.

Their involvement in the recent lower-tier events has seen them beat Nexus Gaming,, and Galaxy Racer, however, asserting themselves against teams from the upper echelon has not gone well in games against the likes of Gambit Youngsters, Sprout, and K23.

The chemistry and organization are what drives this HellRaisers team forward but they simply lack the firepower and quality in execution to make the next step.

Facing forZe will be their toughest task in a while and although I quite like the spirit with which jR and his squad play, they will need a top performance if they are to rattle the in-form Russians.

forZe vs. HellRaisers Prediction and Pick

This does look like an easy sweep for forZe.

The team has been quite dominant lately while the HellRaisers have failed to trouble teams in this bracket.

The underdogs won’t be getting a chance to play on their favorite Vertigo as this is forZe’s usual ban pick and with the way xsepower and FL1T are performing right now, the Russians will have a huge advantage on every other map.

The odds for a handicap win may appear a bit short but given the circumstances, the price is more than fair and that is the pick I’m going with here.
