Astralis (+250)

A Danish Esports club that has been around from the beginning. They’ve won the most Majors in CS:GO history. Astralis competes with the best teams in the pro league tournaments. Last month they placed second in the Blast Premier, falling to Natus Vincere.

Betting Advice: Expect Astralis to go deep into the tournament if not win it all. Only a few teams can beat them in this tournament.

Natus Vincere (+300)

They’ve been there, Natus Vincere took the trophy in 2020, why not 2021. They’re the first team in CS:GO history to win three Majors tournaments in one calendar year. Just last month, NV won the Blast Premier over Astralis

Betting Advice: Hopefully Natus Vincere hasn’t gotten distracted by winning too much. Expect them to stay hot and make it to the finals

Team Vitality (+400)

A French Esports organization that’s somewhat new to the Counter-Strike scene. They’ve managed to compete with the best teams but might struggle against some of the more seasoned players.

Betting Advice: Team Vitality can go deep into tournaments but are they there? This team might struggle as the tournament narrows.

Heroic (+400)

A Danish team that is a rebirth of other former super teams. They haven’t played a major tournament since October and beat Team Vitality for the championship. Hopefully, they’re ready for some action.

Betting Advice: Heroic seems to be struggling a bit. They aren’t playing many tournaments and might be a bit rusty. I’d be cautious with this team.

G2 ESports (+800)

A Spanish team that is part of an Esports conglomerate. They’ve played several tournaments this year already but failed to place. They are going to struggle against some of the better teams in this tournament.

Betting Advice: G2 ESports are looking for a big break, but this might not be it. They look to be outgunned by teams only focused on CS:GO
