Counter-Strike betting sites have Team Spirit priced as 1.55 favourites to defeat Team Vitality, who enter the match as 2.30 underdogs. Considering what the two teams have shown this tournament and over the last five months, that sounds like a fair price; however, it's not like Team Vitality don't have the tools to do well.

  • Team Spirit have not dropped a single map so far in this tournament
  • Team Vitality have lost one game in the group stage
  • Team Vitality (#3) are higher rated than Team Spirit (#6)

Head to Head


Team Spirit and Team Vitality have not met once since 2022.

Team Spirit Form


Team Spirit have long been one of the more recognisable Counter-Strike esports teams in the world. But it wasn't until late 2023 that they found their rhythm and started making a name for themselves as one of the top contenders.

In December, Spirit won BetBoom Dacha Dubai 20234 and have since added two more big titles at IEM Katowice 2024 and BLAST Premier: Spring Showdown 2024 in February and March. Besides that, Spirit also performed well at the PGL Major Copenhagen 2024, where they placed fifth-eighth, and before IEM Dallas 2023, the Russian squad reached the finals of BetBoom Dacha Belgrade 2024.

Evidently, this is an extremely strong team, and based on their performances in the IEM Dallas 2024 group stage, it's tough to argue with it. Spirit are the only remaining team in the tournament to have yet to drop a map, having beaten FlyQuest, Natus Vincere, and FaZe Clan – which alone is a very good indication of how good Spirit are.

Team Vitality Form


Team Vitality are the current no.3 in the global Counter-Strike esports standings – a position they more than deserve to hold. The French CS squad had an explosive ending to 2023, winning BLAST Premier. Fall Final 2023 and the World Final 2023, to which they added another gold medal from BLAST Premier. Spring Groups 2024.

They cooled down a bit in Katowice, with a 13th-16th-place finish, but got back on track recently with a semifinal run at the PGL Major Copenhagen and a silver medal from ESL Pro League Season 19.

So far at IEM Dallas 2024, Vitality have not struggled too much. They suffered one loss in the group stage against the surging 9z Team, but made easy work of Monte, G2 Esports, and Heroic, who Vitality beat 2-0 in the opening round of the playoffs.

Overall, Team Vitality have looked great. But they've also yet to play a team as strong as Spirit in Dallas.

No changes for Team Vitality.

Verdict

Team Vitality and Team Spirit are both strong title contenders, but only one will advance to the big finals and compete for the prestigious trophy. Team Spirit are priced as firm favourites, which might not sound wrong, but at the offered number, it's fair to consider backing Vitality.

There's not much that would suggest one team is stronger than the other and while Team Spirit have looked unstoppable so far, Team Vitality haven't really disappointed with their showings – outside of the shock loss to 9z.

These two teams seem equally matched, so I'll happily take Vitality at 2.30.
