Counter-Strike betting sites have Heroic priced as 1.66 favourites to defeat Team Liquid, who are 2.10 underdogs for the upcoming match. However, neither team is in good form, so perhaps the gap between them isn’t that big.

  • Team Liquid have lost their last three games
  • Heroic share the same 0-3 record
  • Unlike Heroic, Team Liquid didn’t reach the PGL Major Copenhagen

Head to Head


Team Liquid and Heroic have not met once since May 2023.

Heroic Form


Heroic enter IEM Chengdu 2024 with a point to prove, following their early exit from PGL Major Copenhagen 2024. Although the Danes performed well in the opening stage of the Major, where they defeated Lynn Vision, Imperial, and Eternal Fire, they didn’t make it through the Elimination Stage.

In the second stage of the Major, Heroic first defeated FaZe Clan, but then slipped against Complexity, Virtus.pro, and paiN Gaming. Those results don’t make much sense, however, it’s a commonly known fact that Heroic tend to choke in big events.

Talent-wise, Heroic are very strong, but their past results don’t inspire much confidence. On a more positive note, Team Liquid aren’t in good form either.

No changes for Heroic.

Team Liquid Form


Team Liquid didn’t qualify for PGL Major Copenhagen after crashing out of PGL Major Copenhagen 2024: American RMR with a loss against Complexity. Since then, Team Liquid have played just one more official match at BLAST Premier: Spring Showdown 2024, where they lost against SAW and headed home early.

With that loss, Team Liquid are 6-4 over their last 10 games, but also 2-3 since the start of March, and they’ve not played a single game since March 7. Having been away from action for over a month, Team Liquid are slightly rusty, but the long break also might’ve given them a chance to iron out some things and better prepare for the upcoming tournament.

Team Liquid have not made any roster changes recently.

Verdict

Heroic and Team Liquid have yet to meet on Counter-Strike 2, however, based on the esports betting odds, Heroic should win. They've shown some good things at the Major, but their early exit with losses against weaker teams is concerning.

On the other side, Team Liquid haven't shown anything spectacular since the start of the year and they've been away from action since early March. This explains why Team Liquid are priced as underdogs, but this is still a best-of-one series which makes backing the favourites far less inviting.

Heroic should win, but they're not that much stronger than Team Liquid.
