Intel Extreme Masters Dallas offers another spectacular matchup of potentially equal sides. It is NIP against BIG, about which we have an overview below.

NIP lost to FaZe and NAVI during the latest CSGO major. On the other hand, the Swedes dealt with C9, Vitality and FURIA easily. This time, they are invited to join IEM Dallas, and the following roster will try harder to grab a top spot at the end of it:

  • es3tag;
  • REZ;
  • ztr;
  • Brollan;
  • Plopski.

BIG were in a worse form in Antwerp. They managed to win against Imperial only, which did not let them advance higher from the Challengers stage. They had enough time for practice since then, and the Germans might be more focused now, coming to Dallas with the following names on their list:

  • tabseN;
  • tiziaN;
  • syrsoN;
  • k1to;
  • faveN

NIP vs BIG betting tips

Team forms are close, but bookmakers believe in NIP's victory more despite their IGL Hampus missing the event due to illness. The Swedes defeated the Germans 3 times in the past year and finished one more game with a draw. Accordingly, the odds of the upcoming best-of-1 are:

  • NIP win β€” 1.84;
  • BIG win β€” 1.95.
