The DreamHack Masters Spring 2020: North America may not be as large as the EU contingent but it’s set to log back on with eight Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) teams doing battle from May 19 to June 14. A huge booty of prize money is on the line for these squads with Team Liquid tabbed as the fave to win the online tournament.
Team Liquid, led by “nitr0,” opened as the +225 favorite, according to Sportsbook. They’re in Group A with FURIA (+600), MIBR (+650) and Bad News Bears (+2500). Liquid is currently the fifth-ranked team in the world.
Following Liquid on the oddsboard is Evil Geniuses (+600), the eighth-ranked team globally that’s led by Canadian “stanislaw.” Evil Geniuses shares Group B with 100 Thieves (+550), Gen.G (+800) and Cloud9 (+1400).
All of these teams will be competing for a $100,000 prize pool along with tournament circuit points that will go toward standings of a larger worldwide DreamHack Masters tournament.

Format and Tournament Dates
The DreamHack Masters Spring 2020: North America will stretch just over four weeks with a group stage and then playoffs to wrap up the tourney in the best-of-five finale on June 14. All matchups and playoffs will be broadcast with DreamHack’s Twitch channel.
This will be played concurrently with the DreamHack Masters Spring 2020: Europe tournament with Astralis favored to win that tourney.
The eight teams are split into two groups of four and will play each of the other group members once over a five-day period to determine a group Sportsbook.
Each match during the group stage is a best-of-three with the group Sportsbook moving on to the Upper Bracket while the second- and third-place teams move into the Lower Bracket. Teams moved to the Lower Bracket have to get through an additional three series to make it to the grand finale.
