Counter-Strike bookmakers have Team Vitality priced as 1.22 favourites to defeat Monte, who enter the match as 3.80 underdogs. Considering Vitality’s accomplishments this season, that sounds like a fair number.

  • Team Vitality recently placed second at the ESL Pro League Season 19
  • Monte have won just one Counter-Strike tournament this year
  • Vitality (#4) are higher ranked than Monte (#26)

Head to Head


Team Vitality and Monte have not met once this season.

Team Vitality Form


Team Vitality are ranked no.4 in the global Counter-Strike standings, slightly below Natus Vincere, FaZe Clan, and MOUZ, which perfectly illustrates how good they are. The French CS esports squad have managed just one tournament title this year - BLAST Premier: Spring Groups 2024 – which they won in late January.

Since then, Vitality have failed to add another title to their resume, but they did well in the events they’ve attended. In March, Vitality reached the semifinals of PGL Major Copenhagen 2024 and, earlier this month, claimed a silver medal from ESL Pro League Season 19.

Those placements make it very clear that Vitality are more than capable of competing at the highest level, and it explains why they’re one of the leading favourites to win IEM Dallas 2024. But first, they need to make it past Monte – which shouldn’t be too much to ask.

Monte Form


Monte enter IEM Dallas 2024 as the current no.26 Counter-Strike team in the world. Since the turn of the year, Monte have managed to win just one tournament, RES Eastern European Masters: Spring 2024, in February, and have since not shown much.

At the start of the month, Monte attended ESL Pro League Season 19, where they placed 13th-16th. Since then, we’ve seen them compete in Elisa Invitational Spring 2024 and RES European Series #4, where Monte made the semifinals.

By failing to win two B-Tier tournaments, Monte proved what we already know. While this is a competitive side, they’re not at the level of the top CS teams, which suggests they won’t have an easy time against Vitality on Monday.

Verdict

Counter-Strike betting sites have Vitality priced as big favourites for this match and that sounds fair. They’re one of the current top-five teams in the world, fighting a side that is outside of the top 20 without any notable results since the start of the year.

This will be a best-of-one (BO1) series, which makes upsets far more likely, but even with that in mind, it makes little sense to doubt Vitality.
