June 28th 2018, 12:45pm, By: andyrosos

We are back this week with another slate of Esports betting tips. This week we’ll be taking a look at the CS:GO $300,000 ESL One Cologne tournament which kicks off next Monday! 16 of the best teams in the world will do battle for the massive prize pool next week, with No.1 ranked team Astralis starting as tournament favourites. We preview the tournament and give our betting tips below.

2018 ESL Cologne Betting Tips

Outright Betting

Natus Vincere
One of the most in form teams in the world right now is NaVi. Led by arguably the best player in the world in s1mple, the Ukraine/Russian hybrid team has won four tournaments in the last year and comes into this tournament as the No.3 ranked team in the world. Since being ranked No.16 in December 2017, NaVi have sky rocketed up the leader board in the last 6 months since picking up Russian star ‘electronic’.

If they reach the final they’ll likely be up agains the might of Astralis or FaZe, however, NaVi have been extremely consistent of late and I think a bet on them to reach the final at $3.75 is fantastic value.


Props

Map Count

It’s safe to say that the map ‘Mirage’ is the clear cut favourite amongst pro teams. It offers a great balance between terrorist and counter terrorist and is frequently one of if not the most played map at major tournaments. Of the last seven CS:GO tournaments with prize pools of over $100,000, Mirage has been the most played map in five of them. We think it offers good value to be the favourite in Cologne.


Cloud9

American team Cloud9 are in a transition period at the moment after some disappointing results. In game leader ‘FNS’ has been dropped from the squad and American star ‘Tarik’ has taken up the shot calling duties. The North American squad will have a stand in player for the ESL Cologne tournament and could be very shaky, I like the experienced French squad G2 to play more maps then Cloud9 in Germany.
