Counter Strike GO Icon Betting Odds comparison

In this section of our article we are going to show you how odds compare among the best-known eSports betting sites for CS:GO betting. Unfortunately, with so much time still remaining before the official start of the tournament, there are still no odds featured on any of such sites. This is, of course, due to change in the upcoming weeks. As we get closer to the start of the tournament, this section will be updated when first odds hit the shelf.

Counter Strike GO Icon Schedule and Results

With a series of regional and national qualifying rounds that are still yet to be played, it comes as no surprise that the official tournament format is not yet announced. Even though this might be the case, we can still presume that this year’s ESWC is going to be played in the following format:

Group Stage

Best of 1, round robin matches. Most likely 8 groups with 4 teams each. Only the top 2 teams advance into the next stage.

Playoffs

16 remaining teams will go against each other in single elimination bracket format. All playoffs matches will most likely be played in a best of 3 fashion as was the case for the last couple of years. With this in mind, it is pretty clear that during those 5 days (from 27th to 31st of October) there are going to be lots of quality matches.
