ESL Pro League Betting Odds

The ESL Pro League will feature 24 teams. 13 of these teams have become official partners with the tournament with 11 more qualifying for the event. Despite a tough start to 2020, Astralis finds themselves as the favorites.

Many of the best CS:GO teams on the planet will meet for the 11th season of the ESL Pro League, which will kick off on March 16. After some competition arose from other tournament orgs (cough Flashpoint cough), ESL decided to partner with a number of the top-ranked teams in the world.

Though you may question the tactics, you can’t question that the ESL Pro League will be one of the most competitive fields in CS:GO history.

Astralis Owns Top Odds to Win ESL Pro League

It should not be a shock that Astralis owns the top odds to win the ESL Pro League Season 11. The Danes have long been unquestionably the best team on the planet and have proven time and time again that nobody can consistently beat them.

Astralis has not been as dominant as we expect to open 2020. Astralis flamed out at the BLAST Premier Spring Series, going 0-2 in the group stage and failing to make the bracket. The Danish squad did bounce back at IEM Katowice but the white-hot AWP of Oleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev ensured they would not make it to the Grand Finals. This actually caused Astralis to fall to No. 2 on the world rankings at HLTV. 

Even though Astralis has not been the brute force we expect through the first two months of the year, you should still not expect many teams to be able to win a best-of-three against the Danes. Though several of those teams find themselves in the ESL Pro League, Astralis will likely remain the betting favorite to win any and all tournaments they enter until we see something drastic.

Na’Vi Figuring It Out

For much of 2019, we were not sure which Na’Vi would show up to an event. These inconsistencies forced the team to replace Danylo “Zeus” Teslenko with Ladislav “GuardiaN” Kovács, who was then benched for Ilya “Perfecto” Zalutskiy. It took some time but moving Perfecto into the lineup seems to have solidified Na’Vi.

Na’Vi has made it to the Grand Finals in each of the three tournaments they have attended in 2020, including victories at BLAST Premier Spring Season and IEM Katowice. It seems as though Na’Vi reached their final form at Katowice, sweeping through the playoffs with victories over Liquid, Astralis and G2.

S1mple went absolutely Super Saiyan during the playoffs of Katowice, with a plus-minus of +65. Specifically, s1mple went a ridiculous +30 on Dust2, which included a +14 against Astralis.

The latter half of 2019 was a little rocky for Na’Vi but the lineup seems to have jelled. This has allowed s1imple to reaffirm that he is the best player on the planet and can single-handedly win an entire tournament for Na’Vi.

G2 Playing With Confidence

You could be forgiven if you had lost faith in G2. There was a two-month stretch near the end of 2019 when the French team finished no better than fifth or sixth in any event, which included being bounced from ESL Pro League Season 10 by ATK. However, G2 is now riding a nearly unmatched wave of momentum entering this season of the Pro League.

G2 has made the Grand Finals in each of their past five events, three of which were victories. Yes, the talent pools were not incredibly deep at the likes of the Champions Cup or the IEM Katowice European Closed Qualifiers but G2 has taken that momentum and turned it into two impressive performances at major events.

G2 went 3-0 at the BLAST Premier Spring Series with victories over Evil Geniuses, OG and 100 Thieves, then made it all the way to the Grand Finals of IEM Katowice before falling to s1mple and Na’Vi. Specifically, Kenny “kennyS” Schrub is starting to find his consistency again. KennyS has posted a positive plus-minus in 18 of his last 24 maps. Only once in that span has he finished with a negative plus-minus through an entire series, which was the Grand Finals of IEM Katowice.
