EPICENTER 2017 is a CS:GO tournament which will take place at the end of October. For the first time St. Petersburg will be the hosting venue in Russia. Last year's EPICENTER was held in Moscow. 8 teams will participate, 6 of which were directly invited and 2 will be able to play their way into the tournament via qualifying rounds. Of course there will be betting & odds on the EPICENTER 2017 again, and live streams will also be broadcast via the internet. We seem to be expecting a very great tournament, as the EPICENTER tournament series usually provides a great presentation with stunning visual. The total prize money will be $500,000 and is therefore a very high prized tournament.

There is little to say about the format at this point in time, but it is very likely that the 8 teams will be divided into 2 groups which will be played in a best-of-one. Afterwards 4 teams are already out of the tournament because if you look at recent CS:GO tournaments, only the best 2 teams of the respective groups will advance into the playoffs. However, there may also be only one group under the Swiss system. In any case, all games will be played in a best-of-three starting from the playoffs.
Since there is still some time left before the tournament starts, there are no bets & odds for the EPICENTER 2017 at this time, at least not for the actual tournament. The betting sites for Esports have already published odds for the qualification rounds. Accordingly, there will also be the well-known bets on CS: GO for the EPICENTER 2017. Below you can see screenshots of the odds for the qualifying rounds. Here you can usually bet on the winner in the matches, but bet365 has a few extra special bets.
