eSports Betting: Counter Strike Home Sweet Home Cup April 17 Matches
Friday, April 17 at 4:50 PM
Gambit Youngsters 1.75 vs. Copenhagen Flames 2.01
Gambit’s Counter Strike team has won just two of their last five matches but they managed to snap a two-match skid by subduing EndPoint 2-0 on Wednesday in their LOOT.BET finale. Gambit makes their Week 2 debut having won six of their last 10 matches. Over the past year, the Gambit Youngsters have played 110 matches and won 71 matches (65%).
Copenhagen’s Counter Strike team has lost four of five and brings a four-match losing streak into this affair including a 2-0 smackdown loss against Cloud9 in their FLASHPOINT Season 1 matchup on March 31. Copenhagen makes their #HomeSweetHome Week 2 debut having won just three of their last 10 matches. The Flames have played a whopping 130 matches over the course of the last year while winning 75 of those matches (58%).
While Gambit hasn’t exactly been lighting the place on fire recently, they’re favored in this matchup because Copenhagen is playing absolutely awful coming into this affair. Not only that, but Gambit has won all three all-time head-to head meetings, most recently, picking up a 16-7 win on January 10 at DreamHack Open Leipzig. I wouldn’t overthink this pick very much. Gambit will get it done!
Pick: Gambit 2-1

SKADE 1.77 vs. EndPoint 1.97
SKADE’s Counter Strike team has won three of their last five matches as they get set to make their Week 2 #HomeSweetHome debut. Unfortunately, they were humbled by Winstrike 2-0 on Thursday. SKADE has played 21 matches over the last three months and won a whopping 16 (77%) while winning 65 of 101 matches over the course of the last year (65%).
EndPoint’s Counter Strike has won three of their last five matches and snapped a two-match slide by getting past Apeks 2-1 on Wednesday. EndPoint played 18 matches over the last 3 months and won 11 matches (62%). Over the past year, EndPoint played in just 44 matches while winning 21 times (48%).
SKADE might be the favorite here, but I like EndPoint to pull off the big upset in this affair. SKADE went 2-2 in Week 1 while EndPoint went 3-2 in Week 1. These two rivals have split two career head-to-head meetings with SKADE recording a 2-1 win on April 14 and EndPoint extracting some revenge by picking up a 2-0 win on April 16. I’m going with EndPoint to get it done again!
Pick: EndPoint 2-1
