G2 Esports vs MOUZ Predictions


G2 Esports and MOUZ will clash on Tuesday, May 28, in the second round of Intel Extreme Masters 2024. It’ll mark their first meeting since ESL Pro League Season 19 when MOUZ won, and according to the esports betting odds, MOUZ should come out ahead again.

Counter-Strike betting sites have MOUZ priced as 1.28 favourites to defeat G2 Esports, who enter the match as 3.50 underdogs. Considering MOUZ’s form and G2 Esports’ shaky showing in the opening series of the tournament, seeing MOUZ priced as top dogs makes sense.

  • G2 Esports looked very shaky in the first two rounds
  • MOUZ haven’t looked great either
  • MOUZ defeated G2 Esports twice over the last month

Head to Head


MOUZ and G2 Esports have met twice since IEM Chengdu 2024 in April, and both meetings ended in MOUZ’s victory

  • MOUZ 2-1 G2 Esports – April 13, 2024
  • MOUZ 2-1 G2 Esports – May 9, 2024

G2 Esports Form


G2 Esports entered Intel Extreme Masters Dallas 2024 without their in-game leader, Rasmus "HooXi" Nielsen, who was replaced by Jacky "Stewie2K" Yip. This change was expected to harm G2 Esports and it did – as shown in their recent two series in Dallas.

In the opening round of the tournament, G2 Esports had to dig deep to make it past Team Falcons (13-10), and even that victory was largely thanks to Falcons making critical mistakes. G2’s second-round fixture wasn’t as fruitful.

In the second round, G2 Esports met with Team Vitality, who beat them without any issues, 13-6 on Dust II and 13-5 on Anubis, proving that G2 Esports aren’t ready to take on the top Counter-Strike esports teams.

G2 Esports are playing with Jacky "Stewie2K" Yip as a replacement for Rasmus "HooXi" Nielsen.

  • Nikola "NiKo" Kovač

  • Nemanja "nexa" Isaković

MOUZ Form


MOUZ are the current no.1 Counter-Strike esports team in the world – a title they earned with strong showings over the last month. In April, MOUZ placed second at Intel Extreme Masters Chengdu 2024, and they’ve since added two trophies from ESL Pro League Season 19 and BetBoom Dacha Belgrade 2024.

Despite their incredible performances over the last month, MOUZ haven’t looked amazing in their first two series in Dallas. In the opening round, MOUZ lost to 9z Team (9-13), and they barely made it past Complexity in the lower bracket quarterfinals with 16-19, 13-11, and 13-6.

Those are not results you’d expect from the best CS team in the world, and while a couple of iffy showings don’t mean much in the bigger picture, they idndicate that MOUZ might’ve lost their momentum.

No changes for MOUZ.

  • Ludvig "Brollan" Brolin

Verdict

MOUZ have won far more than G2 Esports over the last month, so it’s fair to say that they’re stronger. G2 Esports also look much weaker without their in-game leader and their performances so far this tournament have been anything but convincing.
 
However, like G2 Esports, MOUZ haven’t shown much in Dallas, and if their past games are any indication, they might not have an easy time beating G2 Esports. MOUZ still deserve to be priced as favourites, but their form doesn’t justify the offered price.
