We are already in the middle of this year’s CS:GO Major Championship in Antwerp, Belgium. Let’s find out who are the prominent names in the Legends Stage as they fight for the title of the Best CS:GO Team in the World!
In this blog, we will look at the betting trends and tips for this event.
WHO ARE THE FAVORITES TO WIN?
Well, there are a lot of great teams nowadays in the PGL Major Antwerp 2022. The CIS region seemed to dominate last year and this year, as there are already 4/5 teams qualified for the Legends Stage.
Will it be NAVI winning back-to-back Major titles? Or maybe FAZE can show up with a massive effort this time around?
Here are the odds: the slight favorites are FAZE (+160), which is showing a great Counter-Strike performance this year; the next is NAVI (+200) – the current Major Champions; then comes Cloud9 (+500), and Heroic (+700) at fourth, while NIP (+900) close out the top-5 favorites list.
WILL THE NEW CLOUD9 ROSTER SHOW UP?
The ex-Gambit team is now playing under the Cloud9 tag, as they are willing to win the Championship and claim for themselves as the top bet for the No.1 team in the world.
The CIS roster showed up at the beginning of the 2020 tournament with a big win in Katowice. And from that time, they are considered one of the favorites for every tournament they competed.
It is quite risky to bet on Cloud9 winning the Major, but it will be real fun to cheer for them and they may win the big prize!
WHAT TO BET AT A CS:GO MATCH?
Well, there are a lot of things that everyone can bet on. For example, in a Best-of-3 match, it is common to bet on whether there would be more than 2.5 maps or so. Also, there are interesting lines as to whether particular players clash (as to who will perform better in one particular matchup).
You can also bet on the total rounds in the particular map (for example, you think there will be more or less than 26.5 rounds in one map).
One of the bettors’ favorite bets on CS:GO matches is to bet on who will win the pistol round (it is the first round of the game and the first round of the second half).
It is hard to say who will win in Antwerp 2022. But it is for sure that the motivation for the teams to win a 1,000,000 US dollar price is on top of their minds. However, you can try your luck on betting on CS:GO Major and have fun and win!
