Counter-Strike betting sites have Heroic priced as 1.16 favourites and Ninjas in Pyjamas as 4.50 underdogs, which is quite a huge price gap considering neither team have looked good recently. However, it's true that Heroic have, unlike NiP, shown some signs of life.

  • Heroic are ranked no.12 in the world
  • Ninjas in Pyjamas will play with three academy players
  • NiP's chances to do well in the tournament seem slim

Head to Head


Heroic and Ninjas in Pyjamas have yet to meet on Counter-Strike 2.

Heroic Form


Heroic enter BLAST Premier: Spring Showdown 2024 in shaky form. Since the major roster overhaul in late 2023, Heroic have not won a single Counter-Strike tournament or come close to accomplishing that feat.

Since the turn of the year, Heroic have successfully qualified for PGL Major Copenhagen, which counts for something; however, they've not shown much in any of the tournaments. Heroic placed 13th-16th at BLAST Premier: Spring Groups 2024 and exited IEM Katowice 2024 in eighth place.

Over the last couple of weeks, Heroic have produced mixed results, with some notable wins against Vitality and GamerLegion, but they've overall looked iffy when faced with tougher teams.

Heroic Squad & Team News


No recent changes for Heroic.

  • René "TeSeS" Madsen
  • Rasmus "sjuush" Beck
  • Guy "NertZ" Iluz
  • Nico "nicoodoz" Tamjidi
  • Damjan "kyxsan" Stoilkovski

Ninjas in Pyjamas Form


After months of disappointing results, Ninjas in Pyjamas decided to cut most of their roster and filled the void by adding three academy players in Leo "silence" Ingvarsson, Maoz "BluePho3nix" Paz, and Max "maxster" Jansson, who will represent the team at BLAST Premier: Spring Showdown 2024.

Fielding unproven talent at a tournament of this magnitude is a huge hit to NiP's chances to succeed, and it's more than fair to doubt them. While the replacements aren't terrible, it's also tough to imagine them doing well against some of the world's top teams, and there's another question of synergy, as replacing three players before a big event rarely works out well.

On a more positive note, NiP are up against a team that has had its fair share of struggles recently.

Ninjas in Pyjamas Squad & Team News


Ninjas in Pyjamas will field three academy players for BLAST Premier: Spring Groups 2024, including Leo "silence" Ingvarsson, Maoz "BluePho3nix" Paz, and Max "maxster" Jansson.

  • Fredrik "REZ" Sterner
  • Alejandro "alex" Masanet
  • Maoz "BluePho3nix" Paz
  • Max "maxster" Jansson
  • Leo “silence” Ingvarsson

Verdict

Due to the recent roster changes, it's more than fair to doubt NiP's chances to defeat Heroic, but it's also fair to question whether they deserve to be priced at 4.50. Heroic have had their moments over the last month, but this team is still very shaky and, as proven, more than capable of losing to any team.

NiP, while weaker, might be able to take advantage of Heroic's situation and play a competitive game. And while I wouldn't expect NiP to win, seeing them win a map wouldn't be the most shocking thing.
