Heroic vs FURIA Esports Predictions

Counter-Strike bookmakers have priced Heroic as favourites to defeat FURIA Esports at 1.66, while FURIA are 2.10 underdogs. Since neither team looked exceptional in this tournament, a closer price would make more sense, which begs the question of why are Heroic expected to win?

  • Heroic recently placed top-14 at the Major
  • FURIA Esports have won just one of their last four games
  • Heroic are in similar form, with one win from their last four outings

Head to Head


Heroic and FURIA last met in October 2023, when FURIA won, but the teams have since made several roster changes.

Heroic Form


Heroic haven’t looked good so far this year. They’ve not claimed a single Counter-Strike tournament title, nor have they come close to accomplishing that feat. In February, Heroic exited Intel Extreme Masters Katowice 2024 in seventh-eighth place, and last month suffered another early exit from a big event, placing 12th-14th at the PGL Major Copenhagen.

Despite enjoying a strong start to the Major, beating Lynn Vision, Imperial, Eternal Fire, and FaZe Clan, Heroic slipped against Complexity, Virtus.pro, and paiN Gaming and headed home prematurely. At IEM Chengdu 2024, Heroic have yet to improve the impression, with a 8-13 loss against the struggling Liquid and a close 2-0 victory against 9z Team.

Heroic Squad & Team News


Heroic have not announced any changes.

  • René "TeSeS" Madsen
  • Rasmus "sjuush" Beck
  • Guy "NertZ" Iluz
  • Nico "nicoodoz" Tamjidi
  • Damjan "kyxsan" Stoilkovski

FURIA Esports Form


FURIA Esports, like Heroic, didn’t manage to accomplish much in the recent Major. They made it through the opening stage with a 3-2 record after starting the stage 0-2, but they couldn’t find a single victory in the Elimination Stage, with losses against G2 Esports, FaZe Clan, and ECSTATIC.

They had a fairly rough schedule; however, FURIA Esports suffered two bad losses against G2 (3-13) and FaZe Clan (7-13), proving that they are not ready to face the world’s top squads. Prior to the Major, FURIA Esports won PGL Major Copenhagen 2024: American RMR, but if we look further back, they didn’t show much in Katowice, exiting the tournament after just two rounds.

FURIA Esports have not found any success in bigger events this season, so it’s fair to doubt them. But they’re set to face another team that hasn’t done well when faced with other top squads.

FURIA Esports Squad & Team News


No changes for FURIA Esports.

  • Yuri "yuurih" Boian
  • Andrei "arT" Piovezan
  • Kaike "KSCERATO" Cerato
  • Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo
  • Marcelo "chelo" Cespedes

Verdict

Heroic and FURIA Esports are in bad shape ahead of this match, having proven they’re not fit to compete against the world’s top Counter-Strike teams. But as proven before, both are capable of great things if they find traction.

Esports bookmakers have Heroic priced as favourites, and there is no good reason for it. Like FURIA, they’ve not looked amazing this tournament. In fact, their performances have been slightly worse. FURIA narrowly beat Lynn Vision in round one but then played a competitive game against MOUZ.

This looks like a close game that can end either way. So we’re taking FURIA Esports’ side at more inviting odds.
