ESL Pro League: Group Betting Odds

Astralis, Na'Vi, mousesports and G2 find themselves as favorites to win their groups in the ESL Pro League.

The ESL Pro League will go on. Despite the cancellation of notable events across both esports and traditional sports, ESL has decided to move the format to online play. They have also decided to move their previously planned Finals in Denver to a studio location in Europe.

Will the change to online affect teams or can we expect the same results we would assume on LAN? It will be interesting to see which teams perform better than expected in the new format. However, no matter what, bettors can still wager on which teams will win each of the four groups in the ESL Pro League Season 11.

Group A: Astralis Heavy Favorite

Astralis enters the Pro League as the odds-on favorite to win Group A. Aside from the Danes being the No. 2-ranked team in the world, Group A is shallow. The only team that seems capable of making a run at the top spot over Astralis is Vitality. The French team has cemented themselves as a consistent top-10 team and also has the best player in the world, Mathieu “ZywOo” Herbaut, on their roster.

Team Vitality+198
Ninjas in Pyjamas+856

Group B: Can Na’Vi Continue To Ascend?

Na’Vi spent much of the latter half of 2019 trying to find their rhythm. Then 2020 came along and Na’Vi clicked. The stack has made it to the Grand Finals in all three events they have participated in this year, winning two. In addition to that, Oleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev is playing some of the best CS:GO of his life, which is terrifying.

Fnatic poses the biggest threat to Na’Vi in Group B. Fnatic has finished in the top three in each of the past six events they played in, including a third-place finish at IEM Katowice. In fact, Fnatic has a victory over Na’Vi in that span, in the semifinals of the ESL Pro League Season 10 Finals.

Group C: What Liquid Are We Going to See?

Team Liquid is undoubtedly one of the best teams on the planet, there is no denying that. However, their once-dominant performances have evaporated of late. Since the beginning of November, Liquid has attended six events and has only placed twice. They have seemingly run into hot teams several times on those events but their sheer skill should win out more often than not.

TL actually finds themselves with the second-best odds to win Group C. There was a time not long ago that they would be heavy odds-on favorites to win any group they were in. For ESL Pro League, that distinction belongs to mousesports.

Team Liquid+252
100 Thieves+700

Group D: Completely Wide Open

No group in ESL Pro League Season 11 feels more competitive than Group D. G2 is white-hot right now, making it to the finals in each of their past five events, winning three. FaZe Clan looked absolutely dominant at the BLAST Premier Spring Series but followed that up with a lackluster performance at IEM Katowice. Though on a cold stretch, Evil Geniuses has proven they can beat any team in the world when running hot.

That’s not to mention a North team that is so close to breaking through and an OG team with a massive amount of raw, mechanical skill.

Odds to Win ESL Pro League Season 11: Group D
FaZe Clan+177
Evil Geniuses+730
