NiP really should be winning this one. Cache is a great map for them, with their last win on it being against fnatic 16-13. NiP usually have a great T side on Cache which makes them very hard to beat. Their online and LAN results against tier one teams have really been lacking lately, but they actually played Hellraisers on Dust2 today. NiP absolutely crushed them, winning 16-2 with ease. Even with S1mple’s awp, NiP’s T side was just too good for them. NiP are certainly not a great tier one team right now, but compared to Hellraisers they are much better.
I’m not sure if Hellraisers are having internal problems right now, but ever since Dosia left they’re been very disappointing. You would think that S1mple would make them better, but it appears that it is not the case. They weren’t good at all at the Dreamhack qualifier, where they actually lost to Vexed 1-2. Today they lost to NiP 2-16, and tied Penta in a BO2. The only thing going for them is that their Cache play isn’t too bad, nearly beating Gamers2 and beating SK easily at the Dreamhack pre-qualifier.
This should be pretty easy for NiP, which is why a medium bet works. I don’t see them losing a BO1 to the same team that they beat 16-2 on Dust2 a day before. Cache is even a better map for NiP compared to Dust2. This shouldn’t be too risky, but BO1s always have an amount of risk to them. Good luck!
