FaZe Clan vs Team Spirit Predictions


FaZe Clan and Team Spirit will clash on Wednesday, May 29, in the upper bracket final of Group B at Intel Extreme Masters Dallas 2024. It'll mark their first meeting since PGL Major Copenhagen 2024 when FaZe Clan won, but according to the esports betting odds, Spirit should get their revenge.

Counter-Strike bookmakers have FaZe Clan priced as 2.40 underdogs to defeat Team Spirit, who enter the match as 1.50 favourites. Considering what Spirit have accomplished in recent months, it's fair to show them some respect, but having FaZe priced at 2.40 sounds a bit too disrespectful.

  • FaZe Clan have won six of their last seven series
  • Team Spirit are 5-2 over the same stretch
  • Teams are tied at 2-2 in the head-to-head on the year

Head to Head


Team Spirit and FaZe Clan have met four times since the turn of the year, and each side won two series.

  • FaZe Clan 2-0 Team Spirit – January 25, 2024
  • Team Spirit 2-0 FaZe Clan – February 6, 2024
  • Team Spirit 3-0 FaZe Clan – February 11, 2024
  • FaZe Clan 2-1 Team Spirit – March 28, 2024

FaZe Clan Form


FaZe Clan entered Intel Extreme Masters Dallas 2024 as one of the leading favourites to win the tournament, and they're on a good path to justify that tag. Before the tournament, FaZe showed good form – they placed second in the PGL Major Copenhagen 2024 and won Intel Extreme Masters Chengdu 2024.

Their most recent tournament endeavour wasn't as successful, as FaZe crashed out of ESL Pro League Season 19 in fifth-eighth place. But they still reached the playoffs, so it's not like FaZe are struggling.

At IEM Dallas 2024, FaZe Clan have so far beaten M80 (13-6) and Virtus.pro (2-1), which aren't the most difficult team to beat. Still, FaZe played well in both series and showed many good qualities.

No changes for FaZe Clan.

Team Spirit Form


Team Spirit entered IEM Dallas 2024 fresh off a solid performance at BetBoom Dacha Belgrade 2024, where they reached the finals but lost to the current no.1 Counter-Strike esports team, MOUZ.

Before that, Spirit also performed well at the PGL Major Copenhagen, where they reached the playoffs stage where they got eliminated by FaZe Clan. Even if we look further back, Spirit have plenty to show, with a title from BLAST Premier: Spring Showdown 2024 and IEM Katowice 2024 – proving that they're an elite-tier team.

In Dallas, Team Spirit have played two series so far – against FlyQuest and Natus Vincere. The Russian squad won the two games with ease, crushing FlyQuest 13-1 and Natus Vincere with 13-4, 13.8. Like FaZe Clan, Spirit have looked great in their recent outings and they made it clear they mean business.

Team Spirit Squad & Team News


Team Spirit have not announced any roster changes.

  • Leonid "chopper" Vishnyakov
  • Boris "magixx" Vorobyev
  • Myroslav "zont1x" Plakhotja
  • Danil "donk" Kryshkovets
  • Dmitriy "sh1ro" Sokolov

Verdict

Team Spirit and FaZe Clan are two of the strongest Counter-Strike teams in the world, both more than capable of winning IEM Dallas 2024. According to the esports betting odds, Spirit are clear favourites to win this series, which might sound fair, but at 1.50, they are a bit overrated.

Spirit indeed defeated the reigning Major champions, Natus Vincere, in the previous round, but it's not like NaVi showed anything noteworthy in Dallas, so perhaps we should take their success with a grain of salt. Moreover, it doesn't sound right to underestimate FaZe Clan, who are one of the most consistent CS teams of the year.

At best, Spirit should be 1.80 favourites for this match, so at the current price, I would rather place my money on FaZe Clan to stop Danil "donk" Kryshkovets and his men and had Spirit their third head-to-head loss of the year.
