Gambit Slight Fave to Win BLAST Premier Spring Finals

BLAST Spring Final Teams

The BLAST spring season is set to wrap up from June 15 to 20, with eight of the best BLAST teams in the world battling it out over a $425,000 prize pool as well as all-important BLAST World Final qualification points.

With the event being a culmination of an entire season of play and with so much on the line, we can no doubt expect some of the highest-level CS:GO action possible. Each team will be giving it their all, making every match primed for some wagering.

Make sure to check out our guide on all things CS:GO betting and let’s take a look at the BLAST Premier Spring Finals in more detail.

Who’s Playing at the BLAST Premier Spring Finals?

Eight of the best teams in the BLAST circuit will be competing at the Spring Finals. This includes the hot topic of Counter-Strike, Gambit, as well as the likes of Natus Vincere, BIG, G2, Complexity, the new Ninjas in Pyjamas and FaZe rosters, and finally North American hope Evil Geniuses.

With the event featuring only eight teams, it kicks off straight in the playoffs. This time, we see a double-elimination playoff bracket, with all matches being played in a best-of-three format.

This means that two series losses spell elimination, but the lower bracket does add a lot of excitement as teams have the potential to make a massive comeback in the tournament after an early loss.

Can Gambit Continue to Dominate?

Gambit will definitely be the team to watch at this event, having dominated in 2021 so far and comfortably sitting in the No. 1 spot in the HLTV world rankings. The young squad looks almost unbeatable, as they’ve won 13 of their last 14 series, with the only loss being to a strong Heroic side.

Both their individual skill and tactics seem to be unmatched and with so many events being played, the young players have gained the experience they had previously been lacking, which could have been their only real weakness.

Considering how well they are playing, it’s difficult to see anyone beating Gambit here and it’s clear why they’re the favorites.

NaVi Looks to Finally Take Down Gambit

Natus Vincere looks to be the main rival to Gambit at this event, coming into it as another very strong side. The team is backed by one of the best players in the world, s1mple, and overall every player seems to be hitting their stride.

However, a key problem for Na’Vi has been none other than Gambit. They suffered defeat to Gambit at the last three events in a row, two of which were elimination matches. Recently Na’Vi has been improving and their last series event went the distance, with s1mple’s squad losing out to the current No. 1 team in three rounds.

Considering the trend, it’s very possible Natus Vincere is able to once again put up a fight and if just a few rounds go their way, they may just take down CS:GO’s hottest team.

What Will dev1ce’s Ninjas in Pyjamas Look Like?

While there are two key favorites at the event, one of the biggest question marks comes in the form of Ninjas in Pyjamas. The team recently completed a superstar signing by picking up dev1ce from Astralis, giving their roster a huge all-around upgrade.

NiP has struggled to be a real force in CS:GO for quite some time, but this huge move shows the organization is willing to do what it takes to be on top once again.

It’s difficult to judge how they will perform, but with one of the best players in the world joining, we may be in for an unexpectedly strong performance from the Ninjas.
