DIGNITAS vs. Budapest 5 Eden Arena: Malta Vibes betting analysis
DIGNITAS has had a rough go of it this summer, and it's completely possible that their streak of poor performances continues against Budapest 5. B5 hasn't been playing particularly well either, but bettors looking for lines that could pay off solely on the name recognition of the losing team ought to take a good look at this one.
Don't be fooled by the names on the DIGNITAS roster.
Comprised of the legendary Ninjas in Pyjamas CSGO roster, DIGNITAS will draw bets from inexperienced bettors and regular fans drawn to Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund and his teammates. The roster's reunion was announced in early January 2020, but everyone has been content to forget that the roster's best days seem to be a thing of the past. Pushing the odds further in B5's direction is how active either team has been over the past three months.
DIGNITAS upset-prone after losses to Giants, Team Secret
DIGNITAS has played a grand total of 20 maps over the past three months and the team's two most recent matches were losses to Giants and Team Secret. Those struggles might surprise bettors expecting this team to be in 2014 form.
Budapest 5 has a massive 59 maps played in the same timeframe, which means that its players are going to come into this match sharper.
WINNERS.bet currently has the odds heavily skewed in DIG's direction at 1.24 to B5's 3.65. This match presents a fantastic opportunity for a flyer bet to round out this weekend's slips, despite more high-profile events taking place. While there are opportunities in DreamHack Open Summer and the ongoing IEM New York Online closed qualifiers for closer lines and better odds, this matchup is unique in just how strong B5's odds of victory are.
DIG's recent struggles set up Budapest 5 showdown at Eden Arena
The roster has been consistent in its losses and has a narrower map pool than B5 does. Mirage won't get through the veto on account of its status as DIG's permaban, with Nuke being the most likely matchup between the two teams, given a probable Dust 2 ban from B5. Bettors could take DIG if Vertigo gets locked in, but Nuke has been the most solid map for both teams over recent tournaments. A veteran team like DIG is likely to steer the veto towards Train with the mindset that they'll be able to play the map better than the less experienced B5, but B5's 88% win percentage on the map beats DIG's 75%, despite four additional matches played.
There's always the possibility that DIG suddenly rebounds from its downward spiral, but that change is much more likely to come in a high profile matchup with real implications. DIG's matchup against Budapest 5 is just one for this struggling roster to get over with.
DIGNITAS will take on Budapest 5 in Eden Arena Malta's Cup 7 tomorrow at 4 a.m. EST.
