Day by day, the Spring 2022 finals of CS:GO is getting closer. To have all eight teams, we should await the winners of the European and American Spring Showdowns. As for the American region, we can see some strong teams as favourites of the tournament, such as FURIA Esports and Team Liquid. The tournament will be played between March 27-May 01.
With a prize money of $67,500, there are also BLAST Premier points for all rankings. Only the winning team will qualify to the Spring Finals on June 15.
Schedule and betting odds for the quarter-finals
The tournament will be played as a single-elimination bracket and all matches will be played as Bo3. As it’s a single elimination, the losers will be eliminated while the winners will advance to the semi-finals and grand finals. The schedule for the quarter-finals is as follows:
GODSENT (1.55) vs Evil Geniuses (2.30): April 27, 22:30 CEST
FURIA Esports (1.04) vs Sharks Esports (8.00): April 28, 22:30 CEST
Complexity (1.72) vs MIBR (2.00): April 29, 19:30 CEST
Team Liquid (1.08) vs paiN Gaming (6.30): April 29, 22:30 CEST
The first match of the tournament is GODSENT versus Evil Geniuses. Comparing the two teams, GODSENT has won their last 3 out of 5 games, while Evil Geniuses has only won two. The teams faced each other at the IEM Dallas 2022 North America Closed Qualifier before where GODSENT won 2-0. Since they are also ranked higher than Evil Geniuses, GODSENT will likely be the first name in the semifinals.
Not only in Brazil, but also worldwide, FURIA is considered one of the biggest teams in CS:GO esports. Therefore, they are also considered as one of the favourites of BLAST Premier: Spring American Showdown 2022. The match against the Sharks will be an easy series for them. So far, the team has won four of their last five matches. On the other hand, the newly formedSharks team have played only 1 map in the last 30 days.
The third match of the tournament will be the most difficult to predict. If we compare the two teams, Complexity performed great by winning 4/5 while MIBR scored 3/5. Apart from that, MIBR has generally had a better form. Comparing the rankings, Complexity is ranked 22nd while MIBR is 24th according to HLTV. Not an easy game, but Complexity is closer to victory.
Along with FURIA, another possible candidate for the Grand Final is definitely Team Liquid. Lately they have participated in the PGL Major Antwerp 2022: American RMR and Intel Extreme Masters XVII - Dallas: North American Qualifier. So far they have already qualified for IEM Dallas 2022 and have 3 wins and a loss at the PGL Major. This means they have made 5 out of 5 in their last games. They also won against paiN at the PGL Major Antwerp 2022 Americas RMR with 16-1.
