EG Black vs Grayhound Preview and Predictions: ESL Challenger Melbourne 2023

EG Black vs Grayhound will be the second Group A match in the first day of ESL Challenger Melbourne 2023


EG Black have recorded two defeats since their last victory, so they will be eager to start their ESL Challenger mission with a win against local side Grayhound. The Aussie outfit sit 22 steps above their American rivals in the standings and are also on a 10 match winning streak. Moreover, they will be playing in front of their own crowd. It shouldn’t be difficult to understand why we are backing Grayhound as the CSGO betting favorites for this one. 

EG Black

EG Black crashed out of the BLAST Premier Spring Americas Showdown after suffering a 2-0 defeat to Imperial. The Brazilians beat Colby “⁠Walco⁠” Walsh's team with a map to spare, in courtesy of wins on Vertigo (16-10) and Nuke (16-14). EG Black’s Brazilian troubles continued as paiN beat them 2-1 in the following match at the ESL Challenger League.

EG Black vs Grayhound

Grayhound

Grayhound would smell blood on the water as EG Black are looking at a third straight defeat. Joshua “INS” Potter and company have left the arena with their heads up high in their last 10 games. Other than TheMongolz, none of the teams Grayhound beat in their 10-game streak were in the top 25. That, however, should not undermine their form as they had also beaten the likes of Ninjas In Pyjamas and 00NATION in recent times.
