FURIA vs. Chaos – Tuesday, September 22nd, 2020
FURIA and Chaos are going head-to-head in their final group matchup at the ESL Pro League Season 12 tournament.
The Brazilians look to be in far better shape, however, their American opponents were able to catch them off-guard in the last meeting between the two squads.
So, who will come out on top this time around?
I try to answer this question by reviewing the current betting prices and the teams’ form on which I base my FURIA vs. Chaos betting pick.

Total Maps Played
Captain arT and his teammates have been quite solid since the start of the ESL Pro League so the -357 price for FURIA shouldn’t surprise you one bit.
Chaos has hung in there so far but they will have a mountain to climb here and their prospects aren’t looking too good.
Let’s head to my analysis section and get an overview of how these teams have performed in recent fixtures before I lay out my FURIA vs. Chaos free pick.
FURIA Current Form
The Brazilians started the event with a shaky performance against Cloud9 which allowed the Americans to push the round on Overpass into a tiebreak and then narrowly edged FURIA on Inferno.
However, arT and his squad did prevail in the end and the win gave them the confidence to finally find their rhythm.
What followed were four consecutive cleans sweeps including impressive takedowns against their biggest rivals in the division Evil Geniuses and Team Liquid.
Despite a woeful performance versus 100 Thieves in the last round, FURIA is in pole position to clinch the top spot in the group and will be out for revenge given how they fell heavily to Chaos in their last meeting.
Chaos Current Form
We’re yet to see what will be the fate of this Chaos roster after their in-game leader steel stepped down but the current group has to be congratulated for keeping their spirits up.
Players Xeppaa, leaf, and the new addition MarKe have been in fine form and despite losing three of their matchups, they did wrap up solid wins against the likes of Gen.G, Cloud9, and Triumph.
Their prospects of catching the playoff train are quite slim given FURIA’s overall form but the Chaos boys are not known for giving up so I expect they will try their best to at least make this an uncomfortable outing for the Brazilians.
FURIA vs. Chaos Prediction and Betting Pick
FURIA has done the heavy lifting and I doubt they will take their foot off the gas now that the top spot in the group is in their sights.
Chaos did surprise them the last time around but arT and his teammates have improved tremendously since then and they look to have recaptured the level of consistency that made them dominant in the closing stages of last season.
Their outing against 100 Thieves didn’t look good at all but it came at the right time to remind the players that they can’t afford to lose concentration in these events.
The handicap prices that most of the top rated CS:GO betting sites are offering may seem a bit short, however, I do believe FURIA will get stuck in right from the start here and suffocate their opponents.
They were able to do it in four of their six fixtures and they will be out for revenge here which could easily turn this tie into yet another blitzkrieg operation by the Brazilians.
