Head to Head


M80 and FaZe Clan have never met before.

FaZe Clan Form


FaZe Clan are the current no.2 ranked Counter-Strike esports team in the world, which isn’t too surprising. They’ve proven themselves as one of the most consistent squads in the CS esports scene this year, placing top two in four of the five big events over the last five months.

Their worst tournament run happened at the start of May when FaZe Clan exited ESL Pro League Season 19 in fifth-eighth place, yet even that isn’t too worrying as they got eliminated from the event by Vitality.

With an exceptional 11-3 record since the start of April, FaZe Clan are in excellent form and even though their performance in Malta wasn’t too exciting, they retained their tag as one of the top CS teams.

No changes for FaZe Clan.

M80 Form


M80 are one of the lowest-ranked teams attending IEM Dallas 2024 and one of the main favourites to exit the event early. They have won just one tournament so far this season, yet even that was Thunderpick World Championship 2024: North American Series #1, a B-Tier event earlier this week.

M80 failed to leave a good impression in more significant competitions, including a 17th-20th-place finish at ESL Pro League Season 19. Categorising M80 as a second-tier Counter-Strike team is nothing new, and it’s fairly evident where they belong.

The North American squad have done well at their level and are in excellent form with just two defeats over the last 26 games played, but rarely have we seen them do well against a strong side. Still, at ESL Pro League Season 19, M80 did take down G2 Esports, and a bit earlier, they defeated Team Liquid.

Verdict

FaZe Clan are objectively a much stronger team than M80, but the real question we have to ask ourselves is how much better they are. The upcoming match will be best-of-one (BO1), which instantly makes the underdogs a more appealing bet even though they’re not exactly known as a top-tier team.

M80 had their moments at ESL Pro League Season 19, and while they don’t have many victories against stronger sides, M80, it’s not like M80 had many options to play against stronger opponents.
 
Counter-Strike bookmakers have set the round line at 4.5, which is not a small figure, so as much as this is FaZe Clan’s game, M80 should be good for nine rounds.
