IEM Rio Major Pick'Em selections from the top CS:GO streamers

Pick 'em is one of the favourite activities linked to the CS:GO Major. The fans are trying to make correct predictions to earn a Diamond Coin for their collections. The media influencers don't stand aside pick'ems and always get great numbers in their YouTube videos where they explain the details of their choices.

1

IEM Rio Major 2022 is not an exception, so a lot of CS:GO stars have already shared their thoughts on teams' chances in Rio. The Portuguese language streamer Alexandre "gAuLeS" Borba predictably chose all squads with the Brazilian presence inside. In his opinion, FURIA, 00NATION and Imperial will reach the Legends Stage. Also, 9z with Lucas "nqz" Soares will get three wins in a row and be one of the first to advance. As a result, this blind belief in the Brazilian success left some strong teams like BIG, fnatic and MOUZ without their place in the Legends.

Jacob "Pimp" Winneche, recently nominated for the Best Analyst from Esports Awards 2022, has less confidence in Brazilian squads. Thus, unlike gAuLeS, he is pretty sure in fnatic and MOUZ.

Mohan "launders" Govindasamy has an almost identical pick 'em to Pimp's. The caster is sure in Vitality, Cloud9, FURIA, fnatic, Outsiders, and OG, but he has Imperial instead of MOUZ. Also, just like gAuLeS, lau put 9z into his 3:0 pick.

4

Alex "Mauisnake" Ellenberg is very confident about Vitality doing 3:0, which freed him another slot for the other seven teams. This is why the caster was able to put both MOUZ and Imperial.

5

The HLTV Editor-in-chief Milan "Striker" Švejda has all the same squads as Mauisnake, but he put Cloud9 instead of Vitality into the slot of the undefeated.

6

Gabe Follower has the craziest pick 'em ever seen. They are the first not to place Grayhound as a team that will be eliminated without winning. Also, they are quite sure about IHC, GamerLegion, and Bad News Eagles. Furthermore, Gabe Follower predicts the fall of the Brazilian legends by putting Imperial into the 0:3 slot.

7

The FACEIT star Nikola "Lobanjica" Mijomanović has a mostly default choice, except the Bad News Eagles' advancement to the next stage. He thinks that the Kosovarian side will prevent FURIA from going further.

8

The Ukrainian caster Arseniy "ceh9" Trynozhenko put 9z into the 0:3 prediction after a disappointment in the South American team at PGL Major Antwerp 2022, when he thought 9z would reach the Legends stage. The former NAVI player is also assured in Vitality, destroying the opponents and getting 3:0.
