Counter-Strike betting sites have Team Spirit priced as 1.25 favourites to defeat ENCE, who are 3.75 underdogs for the upcoming series. At the offered price, Spirit are given an 80% implied probability of winning the series, which, considering their form, might be a fair number.

  • ENCE haven't looked too bad this month
  • Spirit are the most in-form Counter-Strike team in the world

Head to Head


Team Spirit and ENCE have yet to meet with their current rosters.

Team Spirit Form


Team Spirit are the hottest Counter-Strike team in the world ahead of PGL Major Copenhagen 2024: European RMR B. They're fresh off a dominant run at Intel Extreme Masters Katowice 2024, where they crushed everyone in their path en route to the trophy.

In Katowice, Team Spirit played seven series and dropped just one map – against Natus Vincere. Other squads, including Apeks, MongolZ, Complexity, Team Falcons, and FaZe Clan, on the other hand, couldn't leave a dent in Spirit.

Much of Team Spirit's success is thanks to Danil "donk" Kryshkovets, who is playing out of his mind. The 17-year-old was the highest-rated player of IEM Katowice 2024, with an absurd 1.70 performance rating. To put it in perspective, the second-best player of the tournament, m0nesy, averaged a 1.35 rating.

Largely thanks to donk, Team Spirit seem unstoppable; however, relying on one player to do most of the heavy lifting can only take you so far.

Team Spirit Squad & Team News


No recent changes for Team Spirit.

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

ENCE Form


ENCE had to rebuild their Counter-Strike roster after the team lost their core to Team Falcons. To fill in the gaps, ENCE signed the former 9INE core, which didn't look too good on paper, but ENCE made it work and posted a solid run in Katowice.

At Intel Extreme Masters Katowice 2024, ENCE made it through the Play-In stage with wins against Astralis and The MongolZ and then defeated Vitality and G2 Esports in Group B. Unfortunately, their run in the playoffs was cut short by Team Falcons in the quarterfinals, where ENCE lost a closely contested game (5-13, 13-9, 11-13) and ended the tournament in fifth-eighth place.

Overall, ENCE haven't looked too bad with the new roster; however, they still have a lot more to show before we can consider them one of the best Counter-Strike teams in the world.

ENCE Squad & Team News


No new changes for ENCE.

  • Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander
  • Krzysztof "Goofy" Górski
  • Kacper "Kylar" Walukiewicz
  • Aleksander "hades" Miskiewicz

Verdict

Considering what Team Spirit showed in Katowice, it makes sense to see them priced as favourites for this match. They showed no signs of struggle en route to the title and are unquestionably the best-performing team in the world currently.

However, Spirit rely too much on donk to win games for them. As long as donk can play as well as he did in Poland, Spirit will continue winning, but it's fair to question how long this will last. Even though it's very tough to doubt Spirit, I don't like betting on a team that has to count on one player to win games for them.

ENCE might not win, but they're good enough to keep this game close.
