Fortnite World Cup Betting Odds and Preview

One of the biggest esports events of the year is set to take place this weekend when the Fortnite World Cup Finals get underway on July 26. Qualifying for the event started back in April and now the final list of entrants is set and odds have been released.

If you’re new to betting on esports, check out our list of the top esports betting sites.

The prize pool for the event is an astonishing $30 million, which makes it the largest prize pool for a Fortnite event by a huge margin. The previous highest prize pool was at last year’s Fortnite Fall Skirmish Series, which paid out a total of $4 million.

The event features both a solo and a duos tournament. Tfue is set as the +800 favorite to win the solo tournament, while Tschinken/Stompy are the favorites to win Duos at +500.

Betting props are also available for the event, including the region of the winner and whether or not the winner will belong to an organization. Check out my betting props article for an in-depth look at those.

Each player (solos) or team (duos) will compete in a series of six Battle Royale matches, with the scoring system set as follows:

  • Victory Royale: 10 Points
  • 2nd - 5th: 7 Points
  • 6th - 15th: 5 Points
  • 16th - 25th: 3 Points
  • Each Elimination: 1 Point

At the conclusion of six matches, the player (or team) with the highest number of points will win the grand prize. Tiebreakers will work as follows:

  1. Total points scored
  2. Total Victory Royales in the session
  3. Average eliminations in the session
  4. Average placement per match in the session
  5. A coin flip

Ninja Misses out on Qualifying

If you’re not into esports or the online gaming community, you probably still recognize the name Ninja (unrelated to our Andrew “Ninja” Avery). Despite being famous in the gaming community, first as a professional Halo player, he exploded into the mainstream in 2018 when he did a Fortnite live stream with Drake. Since then, he’s continuously been one of the top streamers on Twitch and he was even featured on the cover of ESPN magazine.

Unfortunately, despite being one of the most recognizable faces in the Fortnite community, he missed out on qualifying for the World Cup. He was just two points away from making the cut in Week 6 of qualifying, but his efforts weren’t quite good enough.

Controversy over Scoring System

Many gamers and competitors have voiced their displeasure with the scoring system that Epic Games has decided to implement in their competitions. Some feel that earning a victory is undervalued at 10 points, therefore aggressive styles that care more about elimination points than placement points will be rewarded. Because of this, you may want to value players and teams who have a high elimination rate over those who have a high placement rate but a low elimination rate.

Key Notes for Solos

  • Bizzle (+800) is the highest-earning Fortnite player, winning a total of $512,750 to date. He was the winner of the Secret Skirmish Series that took place in February of this year.
  • Betting favorite Tfue (+800) has the second-highest career Fortnite winnings in the field, amassing $503,400, including three first-place finishes in the Fortnite Fall Skirmish Series last fall.
  • Kinstaar (+3300) may have the best value on the board. He’s 10th on the list of Fortnite career earnings at $247,437.39, which includes four separate first-place finishes.
  • FaxFox (+6600) scored the most Victory Royales during the qualifying stages with 10.
  • Dubs (+1000) earned the most qualifying spots with four.
  • Nicks (+4000) had the most elimination points through the qualifying stages with 228.

Key Notes for Duos

  • Tschinken/Stompy are at the top of the odds list at +500, and for good reason. They earned a qualifying spot in all five weeks of the qualifying stage, with two first-place finishes and none outside the top three.
  • Nicks/pfzin (+4000) led the qualifying stage with 353 elimination points.
  • FaZe Clan is the top earning team in competitive Fortnite, winning a total of $1,350,950 across 40 tournaments to date. FaZe Clan has two teams qualified for the duos tournament. Megga and Dubbs are paired up and are available at +900 while Funk and Nate Hill (+1200) will also be representing FaZe Clan in the event.
  • Saf/Zayt may be the top value pick on the duos board. Despite finishing near the top in almost every stat in the qualifying stage, they’re listed at +700 on the odds list.
