FaZe Clan vs G2 Esports Predictions


FaZe Clan and G2 Esports will clash on Friday, May 31, in the first round of Intel Extreme Masters Dallas 2024 playoffs. It’ll mark their first meeting since PGL Major Copenhagen 2024: European RMR A when G2 Esports won, but according to the esports betting odds, FaZe Clan should get their revenge.

Counter-Strike betting sites have FaZe Clan priced as 1.38 favourites to defeat G2 Esports, who enter the match as 2.80 underdogs. Considering G2 Esports entered IEM Dallas 2024 weakened, without their in-game leader, it’s fair to doubt them a bit, although G2 Esports have been playing well recently.

  • G2 Esports are 3-1 so far in IEM Dallas 2024
  • FaZe Clan placed second in Group B
  • FaZe Clan (#2) are higher-rated than G2 Esports (#5)

Head to Head


G2 Esports and FaZe Clan last met during PGL Major Copenhagen 2024: European RMR A, when G2 Esports won.

  • G2 Esports 2-0 FaZe Clan – February 15, 2024

FaZe Clan Form


FaZe Clan are one of the most consistent Counter-Strike esports teams in the scene and are currently ranked as the second-best squad in the world. Since the start of 2024, FaZe Clan have attended five tournaments and placed top-two in all but one – fifth-eighth at ESL Pro League Season 19.

This alone is a very good indication of how strong FaZe Clan are, and there are many reasons for why they’re considered one of the leading favourites to win IEM Dallas 2024. Still, their road though the group stage could’ve been better.

In Group B, FaZe Clan first defeated M80 (13-6) and then needed three maps to defeat Virtus.pro (2-1) before FaZe had to admit defeat to Team Spirit. Losing to Spirit isn’t too worrying, but their past two performances weren’t as convincing, which begs the question of whether FaZe Clan really deserve to be 1.38 favourites to defeat G2 Esports.

G2 Esports From


G2 Esports had to travel to IEM Dallas 2024 without their in-game leader Rasmus "HooXi" Nielsen, who got replaced by Jacky "Stewie2K" Yip. Stewie2k hasn’t neccesarily managed to fill in the gap as well as G2 Esports hoped he would, averaging the tournament’s 12th-lowest performance rating at just 0.83.

Still, despite this handicap, G2 Esports made it to the playoffs by placing third in Group A, with wins against Team Falcons (13-10), MOUZ (2-1), and Team Liquid (2-1). Since their defeat against Vitality in the upper bracket semifinal, G2 Esports have looked slightly better, so perhaps they’re not to be underestimated.

However, FaZe Clan should still present a much tougher challenge than what G2 Esports have faced so far.

Verdict

FaZe Clan are expected to defeat G2 Esports, which, considering the fact that G2 are weaker without HooXi, sounds fair. However, FaZe Clan have not looked good enough in the IEM Dallas 2024 group stage to justify their price tag.

G2 Esports, despite playing with a handicap, are more than capable of taking a map, and while expecting them to win is a bit too optimistic, this looks like a three-map series.
