Counter-Strike betting sites have Team Spirit priced as 1.15 favourites to defeat FlyQuest, who enter the match as 4.80 underdogs. Even though Spirit are much higher rated than the Australian side, this number is absurdly high for what FlyQuest have shown over the last couple of months.

  • FlyQuest placed ninth-12th at ESL Pro League Season 19
  • Team Spirit recently claimed a silver medal from BetBoom Dacha Belgrade 2024
  • Team Spirit (#6) are higher rated than FlyQuest (#16)

Head to Head


FlyQuest have never played against Team Spirit.

Team Spirit Form


Team Spirit are currently ranked as the sixth-best Counter-Strike esports team in the world, thanks to their explosive performances early into the year. In February, Spirit won Intel Extreme Masters Katowice 2024, and in March, they added another title at BLAST Premier: Spring Showdown 2024.

At the PGL Major Copenhagen 2024, Team Spirit didn’t reach the heights expected of them, but they still made it to the first round of the playoffs and ended the tournament in fifth-eighth place, which is respectable. Since then, Spirit have attended just one more tournament – BetBoom Dacha Belgrade 2024 – where they lost the grand finals against the current no.1 team, MOUZ.

Overall, Team Spirit have looked great over the last four months and their performances at bigger Counter-Strike tournaments tell enough about how good they are. However, having them priced as 1.15 might be pushing it a bit, namely because FlyQuest aren’t as weak as they’re portrayed to be.

FlyQuest Form


FlyQuest recently peaked at no.14 in the global Counter-Strike standings, thanks to their remarkable performances in the recent S-Tier events. In April, FlyQuest reached the playoffs of Intel Extreme Masters Chengdu 2024, and earlier this month, they again left a positive mark at ESL Pro League Season 19.

Even though FlyQuest didn’t reach very deep into ESL Pro League Season 19, they still made a lot of noise by finishing third in Group D and narrowly losing to Team Liquid in Round of 12. Over the course of the tournament, FlyQuest defeated BetBoom Team, Ninjas in Pyjamas, Pera Esports, and BOSS, which, admittedly, aren’t very tough opponents.

But the Australians showed a lot of good things both in ESL Pro League and in Chengdu.

Verdict

Team Spirit are a more successful and stronger team than FlyQuest, but the real question here is how much stronger Team Spirit are. They have accomplished a lot this season and seem ready to make another splash at IEM Dallas 2024, but having them priced at 1.15 for a BO1 series is way too pricey.

FlyQuest have proven their worth against stronger CS teams over the last few months and even though this match will be an uphill battle for them, FlyQuest should be able to come close to double digits.
