It’s almost a month since last time but today we finally have NIP back on the server. They have not played an official match since IEM Katowice but if we swipe through all the players' social medias we can see that they have had full focus on practice.

paiN veto Overpass
NIP veto Anubis
paiN pick Nuke
NIP pick mir / inf
Since we haven’t seen NIP play we can’t really know what maps they have prepared but during Katowice they played a lot of Mirage and Inferno is another strong map for them. We think that they will pick either of these two maps and that they will win it without any problem.
paiN will most likely take Nuke here and even if we do have NIP as the better team in this game, we know that the brazilians team can play Nuke well. So here we have to give them some respect and not just go by the easy decision and smash the -1.5 at these odds.
We do think that NIP will take this game 2-0 but the class difference will mainly show when NIP gets to play its map selection. So we will skip the 2-0 and only take a bet on NIP to win their map pick with at least 4 rounds.
