Esports betting sites have NRG priced as 1.12 favourites to defeat Regain, who enter the match as 5.50 outsiders. Despite the huge price gap, this sounds about right, considering NRG are a top-tier NA Counter-Strike team, whereas Regain consists mostly of semi-pro players.

  • NRG have lost just one of their last five games
  • Regain barely made it past FLUFFY AIMERS in the first round
  • Barring any surprises, NRG should win

Head to Head

NRG and Regain have never met before.

NRG Form

NRG formed a new lineup in late November and have since posted mixed results. They have been fairly successful overall, granted NRG have played mostly lesser regional opponents, so it's tough to make any firm conclusions.

Their only loss over the last seven came against Liquid (3-13), which isn't a good look. And the remaining six victories were all against much weaker tier-three teams. Even though NRG are 6-1, that might not mean much in a greater picture.

Still, they're against another lesser team on Tuesday, so if their recent results mean anything, NRG should do more than fine.

Regain Form

Regain are a tier-two team, so we don't have much information on them. However, the North American Counter-Strike squad showed their quality in the first round of the IEM Chengdu 2024: North American Open Qualifier #1 when they defeated FLUFFY AIMERS.

Even though Regain defeated a stronger team, FLUFFY AIMERS aren't particularly strong, nor was it a very clean showing from Regain. The game ended 16-14, with Regian taking a 7-5 lead as T-side on Ancient, only to lose 5-7 on CT, eventually edging out a win in the overtime.

Dylan "DYLAN" Frivat was the best-performing player on the team with a 1.15 rating, ahead of Ryamon "rayxts" Mando at 1.12 and Josh "Joshyy" Reynolds at 1.07. Alexander "sasha" Burke and Eric "Zucar" Zuccaro ended the series with 1.03 and 0.88 ratings, respectively.

NRG lost their last series against Team Liquid quite badly, proving that they might not be ready to achieve much at the top level. However, they've been very consistent in beating lesser teams, suggesting that they should do more than fine against Regain.

The round line is set at 5.5, which is quite high, but manageable for NRG. Regain haven't shown much recently, and their close win against FLUFFY AIMERS proves that they'll struggle to accomplish much against NRG on Tuesday.
