Esports betting sites have iNation priced as 2.25 underdogs to defeat 00 Prospects, who enter the match as 1.57 favourites. The offered Counter-Strike: Global Offensive odds fairly reflect the teams' success this season but don't take into account what iNation and 00 Prospects have shown recently.

  • A clash between two Tier-2 teams
  • 00 Prospects are considered stronger, but their recent results suggest otherwise
  • iNation have a real chance to win

Head to Head


00 Prospects and iNation have yet to meet this season. Their only previous clash happened in March 2022, when 00 Prospects won, albeit with an entirely different roster.

00 Prospects Form


00 Prospects haven't achieved much this season, but in April found some traction and claimed gold at European Pro League Season 7 and silver from MistGames Heroes of Lofoten. Unfortunately, there's where their story of resurgence ended, as 00 Prospects failed to keep the momentum going and crashed out of Gamers Without Borders Europe 2023 in ninth-16th place.

Even at Elisa Invitational Spring 2023, 00 Prospects failed to show much. They made it through the Contenders Stage with a loss against LDLC (1-2) and three wins against NtK (2-1), Tricked Esports (2-0), and 359 (2-0), yet were far less successful in the Main Stage.

Here 00 Prospects have already lost against Sangal Esports (1-2) and JANO Esports (0-2). Their up-and-down run suggests that 00 Prospects can be good, but they fail to show any consistency, so perhaps it's fair to doubt their chances of winning on Monday.

00 Prospects Squad & Team News


00 Prospects have not made any roster changes since January 2023.

  • Olle "spooke" Grundström
  • Gustav "FRANSSON" Fransson
  • Johan "Hype" Engblom
  • Jonatan "bobeksde" Persson
  • Kalle "Ro1f" Johansson

iNation Form


iNation finished Elisa Invitational Spring 2023 Contenders Stage with a 3-2 record and only made it to the next stage thanks to a forfeit win against 359; granted; they would've likely won that match had it taken place. In the remaining four outings, iNation lost against EYEBALLERS (1-2) and Ignis Serpens (0-2) and won against empiregoblins (2-0) and ENCE Academy (2-0).

In the Main Stage, iNation have yet to find any success. They first lost against Sprout (0-2), and on May 3, had to admit defeat to 500 (14-16, 11-16).

Since that loss, iNation have played six games and won four, so they're in bad shape. Still, iNation haven't shown much, hence why they're considered underdogs for this affair.

iNation Squad & Team News


iNation have parted ways with Filip "DEPRESHN" Jarkić on May 8 but have already found a replacement in Jane "aidKiT" Apostoloski.

  • Jane "aidKiT" Apostoloski
  • Ivan "choiv7" Živković
  • Vladan "VLDN" Radević
  • Nikola "Dragon" Bošković
  • Vladan "Kind0" Mandić

Verdict

If we compare the two teams and the players they field, there isn't much to set them apart. 00 Prospects have achieved more than iNation this season by winning the European Pro League Season 7, but we haven't seen much from them since, so it's tough to say that they're undeniably the better team.

One game that stands out is 00 Prospects' win against BIG (16-11) during Gamers Without Borders Europe 2023, but that doesn't mean much since BIG are both struggling and likely didn't care too much about the tournament. And yet, the offered esports odds for this match are likely heavily based on that result – which is a complete overreaction.

This is a 50/50 match at best, so I'll gladly take iNation's side at 2.25.
