NIP vs Virtus Pro – Overpass – ESL Pro League Tips, Odds and Preview


NIP and Virtus Pro are matched up against each other in the ESL Pro League Match to be held on the 9th of March 2016 at 20:00 CET on Overpass.



Virtus Pro

Virtus Pro have not been performing well. Their record into ESL is 1-11, which ensures that they cannot qualify for the LAN. Virtus Pro as a team is known to play well or poorly depending on the tournament they are playing in. However that being said it is important to note that they played poorly at Katowice. The map for this match is Overpass, on the preferred maps for Virtus Pro. However compounded with the fact that they just are not hitting their shots, the map does not make a huge difference.



NIP on the other hand hate this map, evidenced by it being an instant ban against any other team. Overpass is not even in their practice pool and they concentrate on playing better in the other maps. However that being said, NIP did manage a 16-14 win over Mousesports the last time they played on Overpass. Now Mouz is definitely a good team and they might also be viewed as better than VP, as such NIP might be slightly favored on this map.


It makes sense to bet on this map based on the odds. If NIP manage to win Cache, their odds will be pretty high on this map. Considering it is still their worst map and VP are somewhat decent on it, betting on NIP at high odds on this map does not make sense.


The Prediction :60%-40% NIP

The Bet : It really depends on the odds, If NIP goes too high a small bet on VP looks ideal.
